US, Prefigurative Organization: Kim Keyser Northeast Speaking Tour sponsored by Northeastern Federation of Anarchist Communists
Kim Keyser is an activist from the nascent anarchist movement in Norway - the so-called "social democratic paradise" in Northern Europe. This summer he'll be touring the US with an illustrated presentation called "The Prefigurative Organization". The presentation will try to answer the question "How can we reflect the future we want, in our present work?". It will touch upon subjects such as direct democracy, direct action, workers councils, anarchist organizing and involvement in social movements.
---- A complementing pamphlet called "The Prefigurative Organization" - which has been made specifically for the speaking tour - will be available.
---- After the presentation there will be a possibility to ask the speaker specific questions, followed by plenty of time for discussions in small groups.
