Anarchism and Anti-Colonialism

Presented by Nicole Acosta, Javier Genao, Elliott Liu, and Maia Ramnath

This panel proposes to look at the history and politics of anarchism and anti-colonialism, from a uniquely APOC (Anarchist People of Color) perspective. We'll give an overview of resistance movements in various parts of the Global South and the role anarchists and anarchist ideas have played in them. We'll also introduce and discuss the ways in which anarchist and postcolonial theory complement each other. Finally, we'll address key issues of activist praxis today: how do anarchists relate to anti-imperialist, national liberation struggles? What's the way to practice responsible solidarity with communities undergoing colonization in any form, whether foreign occupation or gentrification? How do anarchistic ideas manifest differently in different locations within global structures of power? How do we engage actively with race, gender, and postcolonial theory in our daily lives and struggles?
