The Direct Action Monterey Network “isn’t interested in having long conversations condemning one shitty politician or another during this year’s charade of democracy”, and instead they’re going to join together with other anarchists and radicals to deconstruct the concept of “democracy” itself.

They will be collaborating with CrimethInc., a decentralized anarchist collective, and other anarchist reading groups and cells around the world to have an interactive discussion on the nature of democracy.

What is democracy, precisely? Will it ever deliver on what it promises? How significant is the difference between state democracy and direct democracy? Is anarchism a kind of direct democracy, or something else entirely? And how do democratic discourse and procedures serve the social movements that adopt them?

For the final part of the series, we'll be moving away from political theory and philosophy and moving towards learning from a particular experiment with anarchist organizing in the case of Rojava in their struggle to organizing themselves non-hierarchically and in their fight against ISIS.
