One of the premiere writers and organizers in the Autonomist Marxist tradition, Kevin Van Meter unpacks the currents of “everyday resistance” that have driven working class self-activity for centuries. As the core of all organizing and resistance, everyday resistance has the kernels of revolutionary politics within it as it emerges from the dreams and desire that motivates people to stand up and take back from their oppressors.
This talk was given at Powell’s Books on Hawthorne in Portland, Oregon. Video done by Daniel Vincent and Shane Burley. Van Meter is introduced by Lara Messersmith-Glavin, board member of the Institute of Anarchist Studies, which co-published Guerrillas of Desire with AK Press.
