The Accidental Anarchist
Saturday October 14, 2017  7pm - 10pm (3 Hours )
Movie Lecture / Seminar Wheelchair Accessible

Presented by Dreamers and Doers Film Series

Doors Open at 6:30pm

One man’s remarkable journey: from diplomat to anarchist. British diplomat Carne Ross worked on Iraq and its WMD, and resigned from the government over its lies before the 2003 invasion. His extraordinary personal and political odyssey culminates in a remarkable encounter with new forms of democracy in the midst of war – in Rojava, Syria. A profound examination of the political and economic problems that confront the world.

Following the screening, a virtual panel discussion will feature:

Debbie Bookchin: an award-winning journalist who's work has appeared in The Atlantic, The Nation, and The New York Times. Debbie will discuss the legacy of her father’s work, Murray Bookchin (1921 – 2006). A pioneer in the ecology movement, his career informed the directly democratic and feminist politics of the Rojava region in Syria and beyond.

Eleanor Finley: a writer, teacher, activist and municipalist. She is a board member at the Institute for Social Ecology and a PhD student in anthropology the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Eleanor will discuss the new municipalist movements that are recreating how citizens do politics.

Film goers will have a chance to win free enrollment in the Institute for Social Ecology's upcoming online program: Ecology, Democracy, Utopia
