Until The Rulers Obey, Presentation and Discussion May 22

Thursday, May 22, 7:00pm

Social movements across Latin America powered a huge wave of change at the turn of the 21st century. The new book, “Until the Rulers Obey: Voices From Latin American Social Movements” brings together more than 70 interviews from long-silent or silenced groups: indigenous peoples, the rural and urban poor, youth, workers, women, and LGBT communities; leaders, organizers, and activists from 15 countries. Please join co-editors Clifton Ross and Marcy Rein in dialogue about what these movements represent and what we can learn from them.

“This is the book we’ve been waiting for,” Avi Lewis and Naomi Klein say of Until the Rulers Obey. “Anyone interested in the explosion of social movements in Latin America—and the complex interplay between those forces and the “Pink Tide” governments—should inhale this book immediately,” say the noted filmmaker (The Take) and author (The Shock Doctrine).

Thursday, May 29th at 7:00 PM
Internationalist Books and Community Center

Cindy Crabb will be reading from the brand new Doris 31, joined by local zine writers. Heather Heathen will read from her zine 23, Trace Ramsey, author of the zine Quitter, will be reading a new piece, and a writer with the Self as Other: Reflections on Self Care zine project will do a reading and share info about the project.

Cindy Crabb has been writing the influential, internationally distributed, autobiographical-feminist zine Doris since the early ‘90’s. In it, she explores subjects like consent, feminism, abortion, death, self-image, creativity, shyness, queer identity, addiction, punk and anarchism. Crabb is the editor of the zines Support and Learning Good Consent. She lives

in South-East Ohio with her miniature horses, plays in the punk band Snarlas, and is a sexual abuse survivor advocate.
“…zines are a space where third wave feminist theory is emerging, and many scholars don’t recognize this because they don’t read zines. They should read Doris.” -Alison Piepmeier, Author of Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism

Cindy Crabb’s work has been featured in: The Utne Reader, Maximum Rock and Roll, and Cometbus. Her work has also been in such anthologies as We Don’t Need Another Wave: Dispatches from the Next Generation of Feminists; Experiencing Abortion: A Weaving of Women’s Word; and A Girls Guide to Taking Over the World:Writing From the Girl Zine Revolution. Her diaries and papers are housed at the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe. She has spoken at colleges, libraries and community centers across the country.
