A Call for Submissions: Carnival of Radical Action

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 23, 2007

Sylvia calls for posts for the Carnival of Radical Action:

“Most of us are organizers or activists in our real lives. Or at the very least, we think about it an awful lot and wish we had the skills and/or knowledge to organize. But contrary to the images of protest that make front pages and cause our hearts to swell–actual organizing is not as easy as it looks–nor is it very glamorous.

That’s what this carnival is all about. I will be accepting any posts/submissions that have anything to do with organizing on a grassroots level.

Rebuilding the Left Coalition

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 23, 2007

The blogger of Anti-Capitalism writes:

The following is a summary of an article I’m working on, which proposes a framework for thinking about the strategic tasks confronting radical activists who want to work toward rebuilding the broad Left (of which the radical left is one component). One of my assumptions is that a rebirth of radicalism as an effective force presupposes a renewal and reinvigoration of the broad activist left in general.
