We have 20 copies of the Terror Incognita text now available at the Wingnut for people who are planning on participating in the Terror Incognita reading and discussion group. Please come by sometime to pick up your copy if you want to read it before the class starts. If you are able to share one copy between friends or roommates that would be helpful too.

We are doing out best to get a .pdf of the text available online this week as well.

The Terror Incognita Reading and Disussion Group starts on Wednesday July 18th at 8pm. The other class dates are Wed. July 25th at 8pm,  Wed. August 1st at 8pm, and Wed. August 15th at 8pm. (We are skipping that 2nd Wednesday in August so as to not conflict with the monthly IWW meeting, so it’s a great time to join the Richmond Industrial Workers of the World! http://www.richmondiww.org)

The topics in this reading include: current anarchist theory, queer theory, terrorism, consent, gender, identity, and more!

We had a great turnout for tonight’s second meeting of Anarchist Theory by Anarchist Women. We read outloud from Volterine de Cleyre’s essay Direct Action and had discussion about the text and the labor movement.

For next week’s class we decided to read Emma Goldman‘s essays Prisons a Social Crime and Failure and Anarchism What it Really Stands For

Both of these essays are available online, and there are hard copies of both zines by Emma Goldman available at the Wingnut. Feel free to come by during Open Hours on Wednesday or Friday from 4 to 9pm to pick up a copy.

The Wingnut is located at 2005 Barton Avenue. Anarchist Theory by Anarchist Women is being held on Tuesday nights at 8:30pm.

The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space.
