Reading Group: Bonanno on Revolutionary Violence

16 Oct


PCPN is excited about our fall session Insurrectionary Subjectivities: Anarchism and Continental Philosophy. Why can’t anarchists draw straight lines? BECAUSE THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN RULERS. Don’t miss our meetings (almost) every Tuesday evening (8:00pm) at the Bloomfield Crazy Mocha.

This week:

  • 10/17 – Alfredo M. Bonanno, “Armed Joy”

Pdfs of the readings can be found: HERE

Please bring either a digital or hard copy of the text with you to the discussion.

Time: 8:00pm-10:00pm
Location: Bloomfield Crazy Mocha (4525 Liberty Ave).

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole section, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.
