Presentation Summary

Since the mid-1990s, CrimethInc. has been one of the most prolific and ambitious anarchist projects in North America. Participants have crisscrossed the continent for countless tours and actions; produced books, magazines, and other literature, including 650,000 copies of the primer Fighting for Our Lives; and reported from the front lines of summit protests, riots, anti-repression campaigns, and other adventurous experiments. Always controversial, CrimethInc. has earned the ire of leftists and government agencies while challenging the general public.

In these presentations, longtime participants will reflect on these experiences, presenting material from different eras of CrimethInc. activity and discussing how the context has shifted in the United States. Examining why US anarchists have followed a trajectory from subcultural rebellion towards generalized insurrection, they will conclude with hypotheses about what the future holds. Please join them for a lively conversation.
