Toronto book launch: “Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up?: Organizing The Twenty-First Century Resistance”

In Writing (all kinds) on September 28, 2017 at 1:04 PM
Greetings comrade,
How are you doing?
Please join me for the launch of the book “Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up?: Organizing The Twenty-First Century Resistance” that I co-edited with Michael Truscello.
It is a timely intervention into the discussion on the question of the failure of the people in the Global South and North to engage in sustained mass revolts against the oppressive economic, social and political conditions that we are experiencing.

We can win but we must organize to effect our liberation. Come out and engage in the reasoning on how we are going to move forward collectively…see the relevant information below.
Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up?: Organizing is the Difference-maker

Join the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/287235005093834/?active_tab=about

On Saturday evening Ajamu Nangwaya is joining us for Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up?: Organizing is the Difference-maker, the Toronto launch of Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up? Organizing Twenty-First Century Resistance at A Different Booklist to reflect on some of the barriers communities face when resisting violence and oppression. The book brings together perspectives from artists, activists, and academics across the global north and south to reflect on organizing and resistance to capitalism, state violence and lateral violence within community spaces. (More from AK Presshttps://www.akpress.org/why-don-t-the-poor-rise-up.html)

I’ll be talking a bit about my chapter on organizing against racism, bigotry, and violence within the labour movement. It would be awesome to see a few friendly faces around to celebrate with us!

Join us for the Toronto launch of “Why Don’t The Poor Rise Up: Organizing the Twenty-First Century Resistance.”

Ellie Ade Kur, author of the chapter “Organizing With Solidarity in Mind: Notes on Social Movement Unionism and Critical Equity Work” and Ajamu Nangwaya, a co-editor of the book, will share their perspectives on the book’s themes and the types of actions that are needed to organize and fight for liberation/the good and just society.

WHEN: Saturday, September 30, 2017

TIME: 6:30PM – 9:30PM

WHERE: A Different Booklist Cultural Centre, 779 Bathurst Street, Toronto, ON (one block north of Bloor Street West)

Each of these essays is a sharpened weapon for the battles looming large on the horizon.” —George Ciccariello-Maher, author of Building the Commune

“Combining the most creative thought from the global North and South, Why Don’t the Poor Rise Up? promises to be an indispensable resource for understanding why the new revolutionary movement of the 21st century will emerge from the ranks of the most marginalized by capitalism and colonialism.” —Ajamu Baraka, editor of Black Agenda Report

“Capitalism is not the answer to poverty but rather its cause! This collection presents diverse global and radical perspectives on the poor and poverty while demonstrating concretely how and why the poor do rise up! Importantly, the collection presents strategies for building social movements of the radical Left that are a meaningful alternative to the populist right currently in ascendancy.” —Dr. Anna Kasafi Perkins, Catholic theologian, Kingston, Jamaica

Why don’t the poor rise up? Even mainstream media like the New York Times and The Economist have recently posed this question, uneasily amazed that capitalism hasn’t met with greater resistance. In the context of unparalleled global wealth disparity, ecological catastrophe, and myriad forms of structural oppression, this vibrant collection offers a reassessment of contemporary obstacles to mass mobilization, as well as examples from around the world of poor people overcoming those obstacles in inspiring and instructive new ways. With contributions from Idle No More organizer Alex Wilson, noted Italian autonomist Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Cooperation Jackson organizer Kali Akuno, Cape Town-based anarchists Aragorn Eloff and Anna Selmeczi, and sixteen other scholars and activists from around the world, including a Foreword by Affiong Limene Affiong, Nigerian co-founder of Moyo wa Taifa, a Pan-Afrikan Women’s Solidarity Network, Why Don’t the Poor Rise Up? presents a truly global range of perspectives that explore the question of revolution, its objective and subjective prerequisites, and its increasing likelihood in our time.

 
Unity in Struggle,


Ajamu Nangwaya

“From the seeds of culture blossom flowers of resistance and liberation.”
-Amilcar Cabral, (September 12, 1924 – January 20, 1973)

“Revolution is the most dramatic appearance of a conscious people.”

– Walter Rodney

“The responsibility of an artist representing an oppressed people is to make revolution irresistible.”

– Toni Cade Bambara

I am a warrior of mighty battles and I challenge a mighty foe

A dreamer of endless passions that capsizes in an undertow

Of swirling visions and endless fears blown up in front of me

Being chased by demons of evil nature trying to set me free.

By Rachel Muenz

Canada has often been criticized for being too snobby about its writing.

William Deverell recently wrote in the National Post that in Canada “there is a push to reward insipid stuff that will never sell” and Canadian publishing is suffering because of this.

I partly agree.

Where Does Identity, Beauty and Spirituality Fit into Black Feminist Thought?: The Politics of the Black Women Inside and Outside Education

Cover of Garfield Ellis's Till I'm Laid to Rest - Photo Courtesy of Google Images

It is our roots that give us structure. It is our roots that make us black feminists. It is our roots that give us identity. It is our roots that give us beauty. It is our roots that give us spirituality. It is our roots that make us black women inside and outside of education.
My father is from Uganda. My mother is from St. Vincent & the Grenadines. I am from Canada. I have always seen these identifying geographical landscapes as placing me where I can find my family roots. These geographical places also help me to form a triad identity of African-Caribbean-Canadian. Read the rest of this entry »
