To Change Everything US Tour Dates

From CrimethInc.


This Tuesday, our comrades are embarking on a two-month tour of the US, comprising fifty events in twenty-five states. Where our massive outreach project To Change Everything introduces anarchist ideas, on this tour anarchists from three continents will discuss their experiences acting on these ideas in a variety of struggles, movements, and uprisings.

There are still a couple days open in Southern California in late October. If you want to help us book those dates, or you would like to host future CrimethInc. tours anywhere in the world, please contact us at

With the fall and the tour just getting underway, this is a great time to order a vast quantity of print copies of To Change Everything to distribute in your area. You can also get copies en Español.

Hope to see you this fall!

To Change Everything:

The Promise of Anarchism

An International Panel Discussion

This panel brings together organizers from Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and North America to discuss the significance of anarchist ideas and tactics in the 21st century.

2changeThe participants will compare experiences from the wave of protests and uprisings that has swept the world since 2010—exploring the role of demand-based politics in both catalyzing and limiting movements, examining a variety of forms of repression, and critically evaluating experiments with direct democracy. They will conclude by assessing the prospects of contemporary struggles for self-determination in an era of globalized capitalism and state control.

All of the presenters are contributors to a recent outreach and dialogue project, To Change Everything, which appeared earlier this year in over twenty languages.

Here is an all-purpose flier design for the tour:

Denver metro: Westminster school named after Mexican anarchist, Ricardo Flores Magón

From the Westword:
Ricardo Flores Magón Academy: Why was embattled school named for anarchist writer?

​This week’s cover story, “A Hard Line,” takes a look at the Ricardo Flores Magon Academy, a charter school in Westminster with both high test scores and a high number of former teachers, one of whom recently filed a discrimination lawsuit against the school. Among complaints voiced by some former teachers is that the students there are called “Magonistas” in a nod to the followers of the school’s namesake, Ricardo Flores Magon. So who was he?

According to several books, Ricardo Flores Magon was an anarchist journalist who was instrumental in the Mexican Revolution to overthrow dictator Porfirio Diaz. Born on September 16, 1874, his foray into politics — and the first of his stints in jail — happened in 1892, when he participated in student-led demonstrations against Diaz’s reelection.

The next year, he helped organize the first of several revolutionary newspapers for which he would write during his 48 years. The Ward S. Albro book, Always a Rebel: Ricardo Flores Magon and the Mexican Revolution contains excerpts of some of his writings, such as this one from that time period: “God help Mexico! where human beings are treated worse than cows and hogs. Where 80 percent of all the hacienda workers exist — not live! — in a state of peonage or plain slavery.”

After that newspaper was suppressed, Magon disappeared from the political scene until 1900 (partly to attend law school, which he did not finish), when he reemerged with a different newspaper, Regeneracion. In it, he criticized the government, calling Diaz out by name. In 1901, he was arrested as a result. After his release from prison in 1903, he fled to the United States, where he spent the rest of his life.
