Andrej Grubacic at Moe's 7pm
Book event for ‘Wobblies & Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical History’ (PM Press).
Join the co-author (with Staughton Lynd) of this wide ranging text, in a provocative discussion of history, the new social movements, and where next. Andrej Grubacic is an anarchist dissident from the Balkans. A champion of an anarchist approach to writing history, Grubacic is one of the more prominent theorists of "new anarchism", and one of the leading anti-authoritarian voices in the global justice movement. A fellow traveler and co-conspirator of Peoples' Global Action and other Zapatista influenced direct action movements, Grubacic' primary political investment is in Balkan struggles. He is an editor of ZBalkans, member of Yugoslav group Freedom Fight, and a co-founder of Global Balkans network of anti-capitalists in diaspora. His writings and interests range from anarchist or 'participatory' education to the anarchist world-systems analysis, and from the hidden history of American democracy to the history of decentralized communities and mutual aid in the Balkans. He is a lecturer at the ZMedia Institute, term professor of sociology at the University of San Francisco, and the editor of the forthcoming PM publication " The Staughton Lynd Reader."
