Thursday, June 4 -- 5:30-7pm
Timberland Library (in the meeting room)
313 8th Ave SE
Downtown Olympia, WA

Some of the discussion topics:

* What is the relevance of these struggles to our situation and our struggle today?
* What can we learn from the anarchist expressions of struggle such as especifismo in Uruguay, platformism from Ukraine and Russia and zapatismo from Chiapas, Mexico?
* How can we create a relevant and effective broad-based anarchist movement nationally and locally?

Brought to you by the Olympia branch of Common Action.

Common Action is a regional anarchist organization in the Northwest United States with members representing the cities of Seattle, Bremerton, Tacoma, and Olympia.
