For Your Listening Pleasure. Struggling to Win: Anarchists Building Popular Power in Chile

By charles | February 24, 2014

LISTEN TO THE TALK AT : AK PRESS

 Gabriel, Melissa, and Pablo—three Chilean comrades—brought their speaking tour to the bay area last weekend. The national tour was sponsored by the Workers’ Solidarity Alliance, the Black Rose Anarchist Federation, and the First of May Anarchist Alliance. Here in Oakland, AK Press teamed up with the Bay Area Public School and the Sudo Room to host the event.

Despite having spent five weeks giving dozens of talks and interviews in US cities on both coasts and across the Midwest, they delivered energetic and fascinating presentations on how revolutionary anarchist organizing happens in Chile, touching on student, labor, and feminist organizing, on the practice of “social insertion,” on the distinction between “activism” and “militancy,” on building alliances across political tendencies, and lots more.

Here is the audio (talks plus Q&A). It’s worth the 90-minute listen!
