Austin Texas // We Are an Image from the Future U.S.A. Tour 2010
Austin is a crazy place, the commrades were wonderfull...We did a giant open public talk there... Peter Gelderloos spoke for more than an hour and a half about all kind of great arguments included in his new book Anarchy Works from Ardent press.
"State-run societies tend to be extremely effective at conquering their neighbors and securing vast fortunes for their rulers. On the other hand, as global crises intensify, hierarchical models are not proving to be particularly sustainable. The histories in this book show that an anarchist society can do much better at enabling all its members to meet their needs and desires." The anarchist bookshop MonkeyWrench accomodated and organized our talk in Austin. People from many different local grass-roots social struggles participated in the event and spoke with Void Network editors of the book "We Are an Image from the Future", about the Greek social insurrection for more than an hour during the second part of the night
Among them we have to mention people from Voices of The Appalachia as also Treasure City Thrift and the important local project Rizome Collective
