Tomorrow: I speak at the Boston Anarchist Bookfair

10 Nov

Hey everyone,

   I’m speaking tomorrow about my new book at the Boston Anarchist Bookfair. I’m worried about low turnout, as my workshop slot is the first of the day, and 11am can be early on a Sunday. That said, I hope you can make it, learn about the history of BAAM, and participate in a discussion about revolutionary organizations and our role as anarchists going forward!

Sunday, Nov. 11, 11am: Jake Carman speaks on his first book, Nine Years of Anarchist Agitation: The History of the Boston Anti-Authoritarian Movement (2001-2010) And Other Essays.
11am, at the Boston Anarchist Bookfair at Simmons College, 300 The Fenway, Boston, MA, room E305


Come see local activist and author Jake Carman present his new book, which will be released on December 1st.

In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, and in the midst of the subsequent nationalist fervor, Boston radicals came together to form the Boston Anarchists Against Militarism (BAAM) Coalition. Through interviews and an extensive study of BAAM’s public statements, activities, and publications, this history explores the evolution of BAAM from an anti-war coalition into a general union of Boston anarchists. The lessons of the past decade are useful to today’s generation of activists as they grapple with the questions of political organization and activity in the struggle against global capitalism.
