What is Anarchism? Chapter 1: What Do You Want Out Of Life?

What is it that every one wants most in life? What do you want most?

After all, we are all the same under our skins. Whoever you be - man or woman, rich or poor, aristocrat or tramp, white, yellow, red or black, of whatever land, nationality, or religion - we are all alike in feeling cold and hunger, love and hate; we all fear disaster and disease, and try to keep away from harm and death.

What you most want out of life, what you fear most, that also is true, in the main, of your neighbor.

Reflections on Student Activism

by Abbie Hoffman

Speech to the first National Student Convention, Rutgers University, February 6, 1988

I guess you can't see my button. It says, "I fought tuition." It's a two part set, actually. The second button says, "And tuition won."

You should know that over 650 students have registered as delegates here, representing over 130 different schools. You have come despite freezing weather and hard economic times to do something that I'm not sure anybody is yet ready to comprehend. I'm absolutely convinced that you are making history just by being here. You are proving that the image of the American college student as a career-interested, marriage-interested, self centered yuppie is absolutely outdated, that a new age is on the rise, a new college student.

ABC: Remember We're Still Here

What is the Anarchist Black Cross?

The origins of the Anarchist Black Cross date back prior to the Russian Revolution. An Anarchist Red Cross was formed in Tsarist Russia to organize aid for political prisoners and their families, and self- defense against political raids by the Cossack army.

During the Russian Civil War, the organization changed its name to the Black Cross in order to avoid confusion with the Red Cross who were organizing relief in the country. After the Bolsheviks seized power the Black Cross was moved to Berlin.

It continued to aid prisoners of the Bolshevik regime, as well as victims of Italian fascism and others.

Despite the increasing demand for its services, the Black Cross folded in the '40s due to a simultaneous decline in available finances.

1993: Summer of Gatherings

by Chuck M

The Summer of 1993 will probably go down as the Summer of Many Gatherings when the history of the 90s anarchist movement is written. Gatherings were held in San Diego, Vancouver, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Madison and Denver. The flavor of these events varied, but they all were promoted as anarchist events. Were they successful events? You'll have to ask the participants to find out. Does a plethora of gatherings indicate that the movement is strong?

The focus of this will be on the Madison Gathering which I attended. I've talked to and read accounts written by participants at the other gatherings. They had different themes and ranged from the formal to the informal. I'll also talk about some of the problems involved in hosting a conference.
