About Us

The Alexander Berkman Social Club is a group of anarchists who want to talk about what anarchism is, how anarchists see things and what anarchy could look like. Named after the editor of San Francisco’s mighty The Blast, we hope to have continual monthly meetings that are open to all. If you come you’ll get a membership card, the chance to win thousands of dollars (alright – the odd book or two) and hopefully something to think about and act on. You failed the audition for “So You Think You Can Dance,” and you just don’t seem with it. Don’t worry. The ABSC will have you. See you there!

This Week: Meeting and May Day Picnic

Our topic this month will be Anarchists and Our Newspapers.

Join us for a discussion of the recent anarchist movement and it's printed voice, the newspaper.

Editors and publishers from a variety of papers, including Erik from The Dawn (2004), Chuck Morse from Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, and Crudo from Modesto Anarcho will share their experiences working on these anarchist projects.

What is the place of the newspaper in the anarchist movement, how have anarchists tried to spread their message, talk to each other, and the larger public. Join us as we discuss the the motivations, problems, joys and challenges, and the future of working on anarchist papers.

Plus, as always, there will be snacks, drink, camaraderie, and raffles.
We look forward to seeing you there!
