I know we need to take care of this terribly unsustainable system asap. But I need to postpone the Clog the System class for a later date. There’s already a few people signed up for this class, so, if you’d like to participate. Please e-mail me and I’ll send you the details! Great. Seeyah. clover56(at)riseup.net

Well, with a few hiccups along the way, we have entered the Summer ’09 Freeskool Session (applause!).
The calendar is ready for download (on the sidebar to the right) and the class descriptions have been updated.
There are 34 classes this session – our biggest ever. We hope you are as excited as we are about our offerings this time around. From Math to Anarchy and from reading groups to bird watching by bike and studying the realities of oppression and resistance on the global scale, the freeskool has great stuff to feed our minds and hearts and bodies. May you find friends, learn skills and take steps towards a just, connected and dignified world.
Enjoy your summer and share what’s in your gardens!

JailBreak out of History (90 pages) by Butch Lee.
This is a new, book form, edition of a text previously published in pamphlet form. This is a major biographical study, which refutes the standard “American” version of Harriet Tubman’s life. At a time when violence against women of color is at the center of world politics, uncovering the censored story of one Amazon points to answers that have nothing to do with government programs, police, or patriarchal politics.

Caliban and The Witch (285 pages) By Silvia Federici
Caliban and the Witch is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the struggle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization.
