Pictorial Report Back from the 2nd Annual Southern California Anarchist Conference

Posted on August 8th, 2009 in AK Allies, Happenings

As many of you know, the Southern California Anarchist Conference was held this past weekend, August 1st and 2nd, at the Southern California Library and the UCLA Labor Center, respectively. I’m more than certain that there are several insightful, well-written report backs in the works that will be circulated online within a matter of days (if they haven’t already). With this in mind, I’ve put together a visual report back from AK’s day of tabling during the 2nd day of the conference.


P.S. If you have any report backs from the conference, please share the link in the comments section of this post. Thanks!

La Feria Libertaria, aka day two of the conference, took place at the UCLA Labor Center across the street from MacArthur Park.
At the entrance.
It’s the AK table! Complete with many lovely volunteer-friends.
A dazzling assortment from Urban Xic. I got myself a new wallet.
Southeast L.A. Infoshop. Fuck yeah! I love this crew. They are just starting up, so make sure to show them some love when you see them around town.
Nifty cards to keep track of your cycle, courtesy of the SELA Infoshop table.
PM Press also traveled down from the Bay Area to partake in the festivities.
I’m sorry, I don’t recall the name of this group, but they were so dang friendly (look at those smiles) and had lots of cool, inexpensive, homemade jewelry and art for sale.

Groundwork Books, pictured here with ex-AK volunteer Rudi, came up from San Diego for the event.
Modesto Anarcho Crew, always a pleasure.
This lady had the most amazing wears made out of everyday household items. For example, that awesome pink and black purse made out of plastic bags. I want it.
Outside, people were enjoying each other’s company, as well as the 80+ degree Los Angeles weather.
Thankfully, there was a paletero vending at the conference, hooking it up with frozen treats.
Revolutionary Autonomous Communities’ Free Food Program at MacArthurPark. A truly beautiful sight. That’s dedication. That’s love.
Folks from SF PODER/POWER lending a hand.
Solid line-up.
Black Riders Liberation Party spitting truth.
Bazerk: they don’t only play white boy music, they also play reggae, so don’t get it twisted (their words, not mine).
Quese IMC, Native rapper from Oklahoma. Sick freestyles.
Guerrilla Queenz, always lots of fun.
Compa from RAC sharing some poetry.
Sherman Austin regales the crowd with his music.
Olmeca: tight rapper, down organizer. I have mad respect for this guy. Check out his page and support.
After 8+ hours of tabling, I forgot that I was supposed to be documenting the event with my camera. Free Alex Sanchez (of Homies Unidos)!
