[This is an exciting project of study and reflection on radical practice. Please take some time to read through the articles, if you’re interested. I recommend: Team Colors‘, Introduction to the Project, El Kilombo & Michael Hardt in Conversation, Organizing Encounters and Generating Events, and, finally, smartMeme‘s, Story-Based Strategies for Direct Action Design.]
Will you join us in the middle of a whirlwind?:
Team Colors is a national collective engaged in ‘militant research.’ In May, in partnership with the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, we published “In the Middle of a Whirlwind: 2008 Convention Protests, Movement, and Movements,” a one-off online journal inquiring into the composition and potential for movements in the current period.
The journal can be found online; articles can be accessed and discussed, one can sign up for our email list, contributors can be contacted, and donations toward the projects expenses can be made (each donation leading up to our $1,500.00 goal will be matched).
Inquire and Communicate:
We are currently seeking action reports and analysis from the convention protests, in the hopes of furthering this method of inquiry. Please contact Team Colors at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to contribute. You can also visit our website at www.warmachines.info.
