Black Flags and Windmills: Presentation & discussion with anarchist-author scott crow in San Francisco
Join us for a presentation by scott crow from his new book 'Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy and the Common Ground Collective,' issued last year on PM Press.
The book is used as a foundation for a visual, fast moving and engaging presentation that is equal parts personal story, radical history and organizing philosophy based on crow's experiences as a radical and anarchist organizer in the US. Some highlights covered are the connections and influences of past movements on current organizing, the creation of the Common Ground Collective--the largest anarchist/horizontal inspired organization in modern US history-- formed after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, crow being labeled a 'domestic terrorist' by the US government for 10 years and the effects of the ‘war on terrorism’ on political dissent.
A short film about the book can be found at http://vimeo.com/27543529.
scott crow is a longtime political activist, strategist and author based in Austin.
