Getting together to discuss Anti-Oppression, using two writings as reference points:

Who Is Oakland? – “written collaboratively by a group of people of color, women, and queers – and is offered in deep solidarity with anyone committed to ending identity-based oppression and exploitation materially. By “materially,” we simply mean that we do not believe that consciousness raising or vague changes in personal attitudes can disrupt, delegitimate, and ultimately dismantle systems of domination.” Read here: http://escalatingidentity.wordpress.com/2012/04/30/who-is-oakland-anti-oppression-politics-decolonization-and-the-state/

Lines In Sand: Three essays on identity, oppression, and social war – By Peter Gelderloos, shooting criticism in two directions, this zine tackles both anarchists who categorically reject “identity politics” as well as activists who embrace the anti-oppression ideology and close off paths to revolution.
