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!

September 24th Meeting: New Zealand Anarchism and the 2007 Terror Raids

Our next meeting will be Thursday September 24.

We are very excited about this meeing as we'll be trying something new this month. We will be talking with anarchist Valerie Morse, live from Wellington, New Zealand using Skype. This will be an exciting opportunity to hear directly from other anarchists about the anarchist movement in New Zealand, and especially about the state of the movement following the 2007 terrorism raids in that country.

If you don't know much about the Terror Raids, then this is the perfect opportunity for you to come to our next meeting!
