"Anarchist Panther" Ashanti Alston
Monday, Feb 22

Drawing on his own experience, Ashanti will speak about the relevance of black liberation, the Zapatistas, and anarchism to modern radical organizing in the US.

Ashanti Alston is a former member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army, and was a political prisoner for over 12 years. Residing in New York, he is presently the national co-chair of the Jericho Amnesty Movement, and an active member of Estacion Libre, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, and Critical Resistance. Ashanti publishes the zine “Anarchist Panther” and has spent time in Chiapas, Mexico, studying the autonomous structure of Zapatista communities.
