Mon. Nov. 11th 6:30 pm Mutual Aid Workspace, Social Justice Center (1202 Willliamson St.) Radical Utopias – Imagined, Real & Potential – Kickoff Session of the Fall 2019 Madison Free Skool Discussion Series!

This week we will discuss the Paris Commune, Christiana in Denmark, Rojava in Syria, Oceti Sakowin at Standing Rock, and other Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZs). Informal potluck starts at 6:00 pm.

Climate chaos and mass extinction got you down? Tired of social oppression and state terrorism? Well, to quote the famous Indian writer/activist Arundhati Roy, “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” For millennia, people have created societies of their own choosing – from pirate communes, quilombos, and the Civil War era Free State of Jones to today’s eco-municipalities, temporary autonomous zones (think Oaxaca, Standing Rock, or Rojava) and longtime anarchist communities like Christiania in Denmark. If the proverbial crap hits the fan, could Madison transform itself into a self-sufficient intentional cooperative safespace or would we become just another Mad Max episode in humanity’s social devolution.

Future sessions held alternate Mondays: 11/25 & 12/5.
