Beyond the Barricades is pleased to announce our first Forum on Monday, March 11 from 6-8pm at the Holdout. The theme of this forum will be:
What makes anti-repression work revolutionary and/or liberatory?
At a moment of intensified political repression in the Bay area and beyond, we find it vital to provide a public space to ask these questions and have these debates. We come from a revolutionary anti-capitalist, anti-white supremacist perspective and intend for conversations to advance those politics. We invite a broad range of political perspectives to participate in this discussion.
To encourage critical dialogue among the self-identified Left as well as the larger Oakland community, we have invited a few folks engaged in anti-repression work in Oakland to launch this conversation by focusing on the following questions:
– What are effective and ineffective anti-repression strategies?
– How is anti-repression work gendered?
– How can anti-repression work go beyond a defensive or reactive position?
– How can we better connect work around repression against political organizers with work against the day-to-day repression affecting communities in Oakland?
There will be an info table, food, childcare, and security from Girl Army. We look forward to seeing you!
