Update from WRC

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the site, so here’s a rundown of what we’ve been up to since May.

-Along with other Iowa City individuals that we’ve worked with in the past, trying to start up a ‘solidarity network’ in the model of the Seattle Solidarity Network, that would take on bosses and landlords.

-Participated in the July 31 Day of Action Against Fascism and Racism with members of Four Star Anarchist Organization in Chicago, attempting to bring attention to an incident where a man was strangled to death at a CVS over some toothpaste and crayons.

-Attended the third Class Struggle Anarchist Conference, held in Seattle, which is a conference for pro-formal organization anarchists, holding workshops and discussions for the purpose of determinng our work and learning from others.

-Participated in the October 7th Day of Action for Public Education in Cedar Rapids rally and gubernatorial debate protest with CR’s Socialist Action.

Other than that, we have regular ‘internal education’ sections of our meetings, where a member suggests a article or piece for us to read and discuss. A list (with links) of these can be found on our website under ‘Reading’.  We also plan on writing about more localized issues, because we feel there is a lack of radical analysis in not only Iowa City, but the state of Iowa as well.
