A Year in Popular Power: Episode 1 – Teacher Strikes and #RedForEd


Black Rose Anarchist Federation presents the first episode in their A Year in Popular Power series.

Enrique is a high school teacher in North Carolina and participated in a series of actions that built up to a state-wide strike that shut down most of public education in the state. He begins with broader political analysis of the current political moment and goes into the details of how the organizing was done.

A Year In Popular Power is a four part YouTube series featuring members of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation (BRRN) speaking on their organizing work as examples of building popular power. This was filmed as a panel event by the same name on August 3, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA which was held in conjunction with BRRN’s 5th convention.

We are an organization of revolutionaries who share common visions of a new world – a world where people collectively control their own workplaces, communities and land and where all basic needs are met. A world where power and participation flow from the bottom upwards and society is organized for peoples’ aspirations, passions, and needs rather than profit, racial prejudice, patriarchy, or imperialism; and where we live sustainably with the planet.
