  Red Army Faction October Mini-Book Tour: The Bay Area and Sacramento

Join us for a series of events in San Francisco, Oakland, and Sacramento 
this week, where we will be examining the experiences of the RAF and 
other West German guerillas such as the 2nd of June Movement and the 
Revolutionary Cells, from the 1970s until the 1990s.

J. Smith, one of the editors of the Red Army Faction Documentary series, 
will be on hand to present the RAF's history with particular attention 
to the following:

    * the similarities and differences between the West German armed
      experience and similar phenomenon in Europe and North America
    * the rise and fall of a certain kind of "anti-imperialism", and its
      ramifications in terms of the RAF's practice
    * the ways in which the RAF's line evolved over time, from
      solidarity with the struggle in Vietnam to an orientation around
      freeing political prisoners, to opposition to NATO's war plans
      under Reagan and Thatcher, and beyond
    * the group's relationship to the prison struggle and the movement
      against solitary confinement
    * the primarily political character of urban guerilla organizations
    * the consequences of these facts in terms of strategy and survival,
      and why all of this matters today.
