New York: We Won’t Back Down: Fightfor15 National Day of Disruption NYC

November 29, 2016 at Zuccotti Park in New York.


The fight for justice for ALL workers goes beyond one elected official or election day.

We’re ready to take to the streets, raise our voices, hold corporations accountable, and say WE WONT BACK DOWN!

We reject attempts to tear America apart by race, ethnicity, and gender. We will fight against any efforts to block wage increases, gut worker’s rights, deport immigrants, or cut our health care.

Over the last four years, the Fight for $15 has inspired workers to come together and change the politics of this country around wages. We’ve won raises for 22 million Americans, including 10 million who are on a path to $15, but we can’t stop and we won’t stop fighting until all of us win $15/hr and has union rights.

Address: Broadway & Liberty Street, New York

Brooklyn: Foucault and the Iranian Revolution

September 09, 2016 at The Brooklyn Commons in Brooklyn.


Revisiting Foucault and the Iranian Revolution in the Era of ISIS and of Islamophobia

Janet Afary and Kevin B. Anderson

We will discuss in light of today our 2005 book on Foucault and the Iranian Revolution of 1978-79. His fervent opposition to the Shah and US imperialism and his astute assessment of Iran as a new type of revolution, neither liberal nor leftist, were marred by a surprisingly uncritical stance toward the upsurge of radical Islamism and an untoward silence on the issues of gender and sexuality. We also discuss Marxist and feminist critiques of Foucault at the time, and their implications for today.

Janet Afary and Kevin B. Anderson are the authors of Foucault and the Iranian Revolution: Gender and the Seductions of Islamism. They teach at University of California, Santa Barbara, in sociology and religious studies, respectively. Afary is also the author of Sexual Politics in Modern Iran (2009) and Anderson of Marx at the Margins (2010).

New York: Birth Work as Care Work: Stories from Activist Birth Communities – NYC Launch at Bluestockings

May 19, 2016 at Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center in New York.


Come to the NYC book launch for Birth Work as Care Work: Stories from Activist Birth Communities with author Alana Apfel in conversation with Victoria Law, Silvia Federici, and Mai’a Williams as they present insights from the front lines of birth activist communities. The personal has once more become political, and birth workers, supporters, and doulas now find themselves in the struggle over the reproduction of life itself. The panelists will explore the politics of care and the political dynamics of birth work; drawing connections between birth, reproductive labor, and the struggles of caregiving communities today.

Thursday, May 19th 7pm at Bluestockings 172 Allen St, New York, NY 10002

Birth Work as Care Work by Alana Apfel • Foreword: Loretta J. Ross • Preface: Victoria Law • Introduction: Silvia Federici–> http://secure.pmpress.org/index.php?l=product_detail&p=784

Alana Apfel was born in the United States and raised in the UK. She holds graduate degrees in anthropology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and the University of Edinburgh. Her writing engages the politics of care work with a focus on birth and activist birth communities. Alana teaches on ways to radicalize birth work and continues to support people through birth in Bristol, UK.

Victoria Law is a mother, photographer, and writer. She is the author of Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women and coeditor of Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind: Concrete Ways to Support Families in Social Justice Movements and Communities.

Silvia Federici is a feminist activist, writer, and teacher. In 1972 she was one of the cofounders of the International Feminist Collective, the organization that launched the international campaign for Wages for Housework. In the 1990s, after a period of teaching and research in Nigeria, she was active in the anti-globalization movement and the U.S. anti–death penalty movement. She is the author of Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle.

Mai’a Williams is the codeitor of Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines (PM Press, 2016) and creator and director of Water Studio, which supports and co-creates with underground community artists and revolutionaries in Cairo, Egypt, and she organizes with the Revolutionary Youth Councils of Cairo, which were among the leading forces during the 2011 ouster of Mubarak. It was her living and working with Palestinian, Congolese, and Central American indigenous mothers in resistance communities, that initially inspired her to become a mother and continues to guide her as she practices this life-giving work called radical mothering. Her essays, short stories and poetry have been published in make/shift, Mamaphiles, Tenacious, Popshot, Woman’s Work, Lilith Devotional, and Colored Girls. She is the instigator of the Outlaw Midwives movement, zines, and blog, which shifts the discourse around birth, life, death, and healing by offering a vision of radical empowerment and accountability. In 2008, she published the anthology Revolutionary Motherhood, a collection of writing and visual art about mothering on the margins, which became the inspiration for Revolutionary Mothering.
