Social Justice Happy Hour, with AK Press!
Charles North | Website
This event occurred in the past.
Our monthly social jusice Happy Hour is BACK, with drink specials, food specials, and a very special co-host: longtime anarchist collective publisher AK Press. We've known AK Press, gosh, since we first got politicized, really. For 25 years, the AK Press collective has been on the front lines of keeping anarchist and anti-authoritarian history, political theory, and even fiction in print, providing support for the movement, support for independent bookstores, and serving as a reminder that collective businesses work, even in a capitalist world. Now it's our turn to support them: the warehouse in Oakland, CA that houses the AK Press offices and much of the collective's backstock was badly damaged in a fire just one month ago. They are still publishing, but financially uncertain. So, in addition to celebrating AK's 25th anniversary with drinks and snacks, we'll also donate 15% of any book sales during the time to the fire relief fund! Come on out and support, and try our favorite new cocktail, The May '68!
