Announcing an online, pre-May Day event featuring several speakers and Q + A from the audience.
For May Day this year, your friends at the Forest City Anarchists have lined up some choice entertainment. We’re starting things off a bit early with a live internet panel at 7PM (EST) on Friday, April 30th titled “The Future of Resistance to the State and Capital: After the George Floyd Uprising.” Following the conclusion of 2020, a year which saw resistance break out in cities across the country, there is a wide scale political realignment occurring. As with the period following past uprisings, this realignment has necessitated a shift in approaches for radicals across the US. This panel will discuss the events of the past year, the lessons learned, and approaches that can be taken to move resistance forward into 2021 and beyond.
The speakers are as follows:
- Klee Benally is a Diné musician, writer, traditional dancer, artist, filmmaker, & Indigenous anarchist. Klee organizes with Indigenous Action, Táala Hooghan Infoshop, Protect the Peaks, Haul No!, Kinłani Mutual Aid and IndigenousMutualAid.org.
- Sam Pree-Gonzalez is a revolutionary coming to us from Minneapolis. Her political work centers around economic justice, cooperative economics, housing justice and local community autonomy.
- Sima Lee is a musician and revolutionary from the Baltimore/DC area who has been a lifelong organizer. Her work focuses on the concept of maroon communities, anarchism and the intersections of these concepts with work around mutual aid and community structures of self-defense.
- Frank Andrews is a participant in the It’s Going Down media collective. IGD is a platform for autonomous anti-colonial, anti-capitalist, and antifascist movements across so-called North America.
