Southern California Anarchist Conference


The Southern California Anarchist Conference– a weekend long conference centered on anarchist and its anti-authoritarian tendencies as uniquely manifested in the southern California. Collectively we hope to show past & present examples of anarchist ideas in practice, through speakers, panels, workshops, images, theater, music, film and non-coercive socializing as they intersect in the everyday struggles against coercive power, capitalism and the state.

  1. Yeah meetings are great but this below is the real deal when it comes to survival.
    Workers of the World Unite! You’ve got nothing to lose but your chains!

    Mob beats Chinese steel factory executive to death
    Thousands of workers had gathered in northeastern rust belt city of Tonghua to protest the takeover of their company and threatened layoffs.
    July 27, 2009

    Chinese state media confirmed Monday that a steel factory executive was beaten to death after thousands of workers gathered to protest the takeover of their company.

    Chen Guojun, an executive at Jianlong Steel Holding Co., died Friday after an angry mob in the northeastern rust belt city of Tonghua beat him and then blocked ambulances from reaching him, according to the China Daily.

    The protesters worked at the state-owned Tonghua Iron and Steel Group, which was going to be sold to Chen’s privately owned Jianlong Steel. Chen sparked the riot by announcing 30,000 workers would be laid off, the newspaper said.

    They dispersed later only after they were assured by authorities the sale would not go through.

    Hmmmm, could this kind of action be coming here?

  2. Isn’t a conference, or organization to any degree, contradictory to the purpose of anarchy?

  3. @Cristobal, once again the silly misconception (i.e. uneducated and ignorant) of Anarchy rears it’s head. The answer, as chimatli has clearly stated, is a big fat NO – not even close.
