The Friendly Fire Collective presents...

WHOEVER THEY VOTE FOR, ARE WE UNGOVERNABLE?
An evening of friendly discussion hosted by the Friendly Fire Collective.

This Wednesday, November 12th at 7pm
Station 40 event space - 3030B 16th st. @ Mission St.
San Francisco

Now that the elections are over and it looks like we have a new leader in line to take power, we feel that it's time for anti-authoritarians in the Bay Area to come together and discuss what the next 4 years will look like and - more importantly - how we can be more effective under a new administration.

Will we continue to be marginalized like during the Bush years? Or does America's shift to the left open an opportunity for new organizing and action?

Bring your ideas and friends and join us for a guided discussion on these questions and more this Wednesday night.

Some topics that will be brought forward for discussion are:

-Obama and Race:
How does a predominantly white anti-authoritarian movement relate to the first black presidency?

-Obamaphoria:
How has the left's obsession with Obama resurrected ideas of nationalism and/or patriotism?

- Organizing:
How can we begin to organize in a context defined by a rhetoric of institutional 'change' and 'progress'?

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
