This month we will be reading texts on anarcha-feminism ranging from some oldies with Goldman and de Cleyre to more modern texts analysing with hooks, Lorde and Dirik. As part of the reading we’ve suggested a few questions which we’ll cover in the discussion:
What is the difference between anarcha-feminism, radical feminism and liberal feminism?
To what extend are the issues discussed by Goldman still relevant today?
How can anarchist practice be more feminist (should it be)?
Although we’ve picked quite a few texts this month they’re short we promise!
Look forward to seeing you all 7pm 20th November at Freedom Bookshop.

First Thursdays @ Freedom Bookshop
An evening to raise funds for Decentre and the eco-anarchist project Feral Crust, a group based in the Phillipines.
The bookshop will stay open late, and there will be a vegetarian dinner and refreshments, as well as acoustic music and a selection of zines for sale.
Feral Crust are a group based in Davao in the Phillipines. They have started an autonomous land project that incorporates anarchist principles of mutual aid and non-hierarchical organising as well as awareness and care for the wildlife of the area. They aim to be self-sufficient, and we wish to attempt to help them in their goal.
There will also be a zine available to provide more information about the Feral Crust crew and their activities.
Check out more info about them at feralcrustproject.wordpress.com or get in touch with them at email@example.com
Big L. – Lead singer of The Dubrighters, playing acoustic tracks of his own, and some together alongside:
Anarchic Tendencies – Terrible raucous acoustic punk from one of the members of the Decentre collective.
Elajaff – Former London squatter returns for a visit just in time to entertain us with some bangers.
Noah Fabri – Fresh from performing the Freedom social at the “nottheanarchistbookfair”, Noah will bring their singer-songwriter multi-talented tracks to your attention.

If you are an artist or a group who is interested in participating in First Thursdays at Freedom get in touch with the bookshop at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anarchy and art, every first Thursday of the month!
