I don't believe in culture ... I believe in encounters. -- Gilles Deleuze

Anarchist Political Ecology (APE) Group

Sundays 11:30 am - 1:30 pm Central

The Anarchist Political Ecology Group (APE) is co-sponsored by La Terre Institute for Community and Ecology and Yes We Cannibal. If you would like to participate, join the listerv at the APE Info Page. For questions, email meetmeat@yeswecannibal.org. The central organizing person for the group is Joe Scheip.

We meet every Sunday at 11:30 am central time. Some members are core members who attend every week. Others are drawn from a pool of perhaps 50 around the world who drop in and out or come or one text or another. Since we have had group members recently from four North American, two European, and one Asian time zone, we have tried to find a time that would facilitate everyone’s participation.

APE is rooted in Anarchist Political Ecology but one does not need to be Anarchist nor Political, nor Ecological to join, these forms are the lens through which we engage these texts and our conversation

Working questions/thoughts/musings on our mission:

  • What does it mean to be Anarchist, to be Political, to be Ecological.
  • We desire relationships with humanity and earth alike that are egalitarian, free to develop without domination, and in symbiosis with place.
  • We aim for liberation, but a liberation that requires equality – as there is no liberty without equality.
  • Our aim is to develop a community based on affinity, sharing, personal and group development.

Along with readings and discussions, we also desire output that enriches the human experience. To that end, based on the discussions, we’ve discussed producing a collaborative work in the future as a document of our becoming.

We hope to see you soon. And if you can’t come or don’t want to for a given discussion, all are always welcome to return.
