First Issue of The Cradle of Liberty – Out Now!

11 Apr

First Issue of The Cradle of Liberty - Out Now!

Hey all,
Check out this brand new publication I’m helping to launch. In many ways it is similar to the old BAAM newsletter. However instead of focusing on anarchism, The Cradle of Liberty is broadly focused on the struggles, trials, efforts, and communities of the working class of the Boston Area.

A new publication! The Cradle of Liberty

10 Mar

Greetings friends and comrades,

If you like my writings from my recent book, check out the new publication I’m helping to launch! The Cradle of Liberty, due to appear in early April, will be a publication about people’s struggles in and around Boston. It will promote anarchist values but not quite in such a blunt was as did the BAAM Newsletter. Our hope is that this will be a paper any working class person may find interesting and valuable.

Call for Submissions – The Cradle of Liberty

The Cradle of Liberty Collective is looking for news articles, editorials, short essays, and event announcements relevant to the Massachusetts working class community. We, the Cradle of Liberty Collective, are publishing the first issue of *The Cradle of Liberty*, a bi-monthly newspaper, in April and we are calling for submissions. We ask that all articles be submitted by March 16th. Send them to:
CradleofLibertyNews@gmail.com

Formal institutions, from the media to political parties to schools, work to disengage us from politics, to turn us into spectators and not actors, and to stifle discussion about issues that affect us.  The aim of *The Cradle of Liberty* is to engage working class people, connect communities, promote struggles against oppression and injustice, and encourage open discussion.

We want stories that highlight successes of people who are fighting injustices in the community, labor groups struggling for fair compensation and treatment, and people who act for the benefit of their neighbors. We want articles that reveal the iniquities in the system and promote the people who are working to correct them.

We are for people having a direct say in the organizations making decisions about their lives. We want everyone to be part of the decision-making process in decisions that affect them and their communities.

If this sounds appealing to you and you would like to submit an article or would like to get involved in any other way, then please get in touch. If you cannot submit content, we are also looking for financial support in producing this free publication.

For the first issue, we ask that all articles be submitted by March 16th.
