As part of our event on September 5th, 2018 at 7PM at the radical autonomous space, La Conxa, an anarchist comrade shares with us her essay on Chicanismo & Chicano Nationalism which offers a necessary feminist critique of these two related ideas. She can be found on twitter at https://twitter.com/xicanarquista and you can help support her & her work by contributing at https://cash.me/$Carlavazquez.
We are excited to facilitate a class/discussion group on Chicano Nationalism and a variety of critiques of it as part of the F.T.P. series hosted by La Conxa. We will use a variety of analyses including: anarchist, anti-colonial, anti-blackness, anti-state communist, etc.
The basis for the discussion will be based off this text we published: https://ediciones-ineditos.com/2018/03/11/contra-aztlan-a-critique-of-chicano-nationalism/
We will also share, in a couple of days, another text that will aide our discussion.
As U.S. Nationalism begins to grow stronger once again, we found it important to also question Chicano Nationalism which is common among certain wings of the Chicanx radical milieu.

This text was first written in 2016 and has been re-vised and we felt it would be worthwhile to re-publish its re-visioning.
