Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States

by Team Colors Collective (Editors)
£16.00   paperback  AK Press (2010)

Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States by Team Colors Collective (Editors) In the midst of a moment defined by international crises, community devastation, increasing injustice, and ruptures in the fabric of everyday life, winds of resistance continue to emerge and to circulate. Uses of a Whirlwind is more than just a snapshot of current activity, organizing, ideas, and questions circulating among today's radicals. It's an opportunity for organizers, theorists, strategists, and movement elders to share and connect, to speak honestly of the challenges before us, to articulate new demands and possibilities in the ongoing war against state and capital.
 
Team Colors Collective invites voices from today's myriad currents, and in so doing generates common understandings of radical community organizing, movement building, and the impetus and inspiration toward making a revolution possible. The essays collected here come from very different places: farms, forests, bookstores, streets and street corners, homes, corporate chains. Their authors organize in very different ways: art and media, mapping and research, theory and discussion, popular education, and road blockades. Yet they are all moved by the same desire: to create new worlds and new ways of being, and demanding nothing less. We are in the middle of a whirlwind of struggle and opportunities for fundamental change abound; it's just a question of how we use them.
