The Bay Area Anarchist Salon, a monthly facilitated conversation by and for anarchists, features a specific question, which we then answer together, and a potluck meal. Please bring food, drink, or dessert to share!
Question: "How are austerity cuts impacting you and others in your region/city, and what are you doing or what would you like to be doing to address them?"
Format this month: Rather than a few initial respondents kicking off the discussion, we'll ask you for updates on austerity cuts from places around the United States and a variety of ideas to resist them, since we're hoping to have many out-of-towners at the salon due to the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair. So come prepared to share your analysis and creative strategies, and join in a conversation with other anarchists.
As always, our aim is to encourage critical yet constructive dialogue and comradely debate concerning the difficult strategic questions that we face as we try to engage in social transformation; to develop a culture of reconstruction and vision alongside a culture of resistance; and to build more trust and understanding among the diverse anarchist perspectives. Our hope is that through ongoing discussions related to contemporary organizing dilemmas--discussions that focus on ideas not people, and strive to develop a culture of kindness in how we grapple with key strategic issues--our various projects and organizing efforts, within and outside anarchist circles, will become stronger, smarter, and more effective.
