Workshop: Don't Die Wondering: Atlanta Against the Police Winter 2011-2012

Date/Time:

In September 2011, a weak and inexperienced black bloc tore away from the ritual of Leftist political practice. Last winter, in the wake of a dying Occupy movement, dozens of Atlanta anarchists, anticapitalists and rebels participated in an unexpected surge of anti-police activity. This kick-started a roller coaster of experimentation and revolt which eventually crash-landed like a pair of sneakers on the windshield of a police cruiser 7 months later. Join some ATLiens in a discussion of these events, the energy that animated them, and the contradictions that ended it all.

Materials provided. We hope to offer our presentation and then have some constructive conversation.

Most "workshops" ive been to lately just mean someone will be talking about something in front of a group of people followed by a discussion.

I'm assuming this means someone will be giving a presentation on the Dont Die Wondering piece (it wasn't mentioned that you have to read it before attending although its worth the read) and I'd assume this will possibly even be followed by a discussion.

(unlike a reading group where reading a piece is necessary for participation)

Thats how I understand it anyway.

isn't a workshop an event where work happens? Maybe this should be called a "reading group" so as not to confuse t3h n00bs.
