Tacoma Washington // We Are an Image from the Future U.S.A. Tour 2010

April 1, 2010

The anarchist space in Tacoma is small but wild… The comrades there are uncompromised and committed to the social war as in few places. They prepare a typography laboratory that will have major influence in West Coast for the creation and wide spread of free distributed counter-information in the form of political flyers, pamphlets, zines, communiqués, invitations for demonstrations and assemblies, neighbourhood assemblies, student struggle e.t.c., a strategy that we believe it will have amazingly important role to the expanding and the high visibility of the anarchist movement in the near future in amerikkka. Our friends and comrades in Tacoma publish the magazine Autonomy 253 [http://autonomy253.wordpress.com/ ] and run a great blog Utopia or Bust where you can find possibly the best review until now about our talk in Tacoma, two and a half hours of strategic organizing and sharing of experiences and inspiration:

There are a lot of interesting political, social and cultural projects in Tacoma and we hope you will be inspired by them starting your own group or turn your company of friends in a insurrectionary cell of Life, Love, Chaos & Total Freedom
There are plenty of beautiful and inspiring things happening in every city. There are comrades in your very own city, everywhere. Look around you…Understand the illusions of the people and fight against them….Hear the fears, the hopes and the needs of the people around you and fight on their side…Make them feel the benefit of your fight….Participate, Take Initiative, Act, Spread your Influence!
