Tomorrow: Autonomous Action Night & More!

You can always find our calendar here for latest updates!

TOMORROW - Autonomous Action Night:
A History of Modern American Anti-Fascism

Come to Rhizome and listen to a long time participant in the anti-fascist struggle (over 25 years at this point) discuss the history of modern American anti-fascism, starting with Anti-Racist Action in the 1990s, and going up through the present day.

The talk will be followed by a discussion and social.

Autonomous Action Night exist as an attempt to create an entry space for those, new and returning to the movement, who are interested in anti-hierarchic organizing outside of traditional organizational structures. In the world of autonomous direct action crews, affinity groups, and collectives where we have more autonomy of action, it can be difficult to find how to plug in, and can be even more difficult to know how to begin. Autonomous Action Nights are spaces for us to come together, build skills, steward movement history, and create the new ideas that will help shape the future of autonomous resistance in Northeast Ohio.

People of all experience levels are encouraged to attend. If you're excited about this project and want to learn about organizing by helping us put on the Autonomous Action Night, come thru and let us know!

Pizza will be provided.
Children welcome and celebrated :)

For the wild, within us and around us!

"Je ne suis pas marxiste" - Michael Heinrich |

More info about the book:

Although mainstream economists and commentators once dismissed Marx's work as outmoded and flawed, some are begrudgingly acknowledging an analysis that sees capitalism as inherently unstable. And of course, there are those, like Michael Heinrich, who have seen the value of Marx all along, and are in a unique position to explain the intricacies of Marx's thought.

Heinrich's modern interpretation of Capital is now available to English-speaking readers for the first time. It has gone through nine editions in Germany. The author systematically covers all three volumes of Capital and explains all the basic aspects of Marx's critique of capitalism in a way that is clear and concise. He provides background information on the intellectual and political milieu in which Marx worked,  and looks at crucial issues beyond the scope of Capital, such as class struggle, the relationship between capital and the state, accusations of historical determinism, and Marx's understanding of communism.

Uniquely, Heinrich emphasizes the monetary character of Marx's work, in addition to the traditional emphasis on the labor theory of value, this highlighting the relevance of Capital to the age of financial explosions and implosions.
