9781604864533: Black Flags and Windmills: Hope, Anarchy, and the Common Ground Collective

Tracing a life of radical activism and the emergence of a grassroots organization in the face of disaster, this chronicle describes scott crow's headlong rush into the political storm surrounding the catastrophic failure of the levee in New Orleans in 2005 and the subsequent failure of state and local government agencies in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. It recounts crow's efforts with others in the community to found Common Ground Collective, a grassroots relief organization that built medical clinics, set up food and water distribution, and created community gardens when local government agencies, FEMA, and the Red Cross were absent or ineffective. The members also stood alongside the beleaguered residents of New Orleans in resisting home demolitions, white militias, police brutality, and FEMA incompetence. This vivid, personal account maps the intersection of radical ideology with pragmatic action and chronicles a community's efforts to translate ideals into tangible results. This expanded second edition includes up-to-date interviews and discussions between crow and some of today's most articulate and influential activists and organizers on topics ranging from grassroots disaster relief efforts, both economic and environmental; dealing with infiltration, interrogation, and surveillance from the federal government; and a new photo section that vividly portrays scott's experiences as an anarchist, activist, and movement organizer in today's world.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

When both levees and governments failed in New Orleans in 2005, scott crow cofounded the Common Ground Collective. Without government, FEMA ot the Red Cross, this volunteer organisation built medical clinics, set up food and water distribution and created community gardens. They resisted home demolitions, white militias, police brutality and FEMA's incompetence. crow's vivid memoir maps the intertwining of his radical experience and ideas with Hurricane Katrina's reality, and community efforts to translate ideals into action and resist indifference.

Revue de presse :

"As one is taken on this journey with Scott Crow, one can feel the rage of a government out of its depth and out of touch with the needs of a people it has forgotten. One sees the horror of the events, not as told in the local and national news, but the truthful perspective as experienced on the ground." -- Anarchist Studies
