The Dirty Energy Road Show is an educational presentation examining the parallels of coal and nuclear issues and connecting them to other form of dirty energy and climate change. It also looks at work being done to transition us away from these dirty industries and towards a more sustainable and healthier future.
The purpose of this presentation is to educate communities and raise awareness about MTR, nukes and other forms of dirty energy, and their risks and consequences for surrounding communities and the world. We will focus primarily on the parallels between the nuclear fuel chain and the death cycle of coal. Some of the issues we will cover are dangers around the extraction process, the processing of fuel, using the fuel at power plants, climate change and severe storms, waste storage and impoundment failures, and radiation. We will also share stories of grassroots efforts to protect and safeguard communities, as well as information about current organizing initiatives and ways to get involved.

Come to the UNControllables’ Anarchist FAQ!
for those interested in living without permission
What UNC frat boys are saying about anarchists:
“They are petulant, short-sighted adolescents who are openly mocked and never accomplish anything.”
“Only oppressed in their imaginations.”
“Self-declared anarchist members (a term whose very nature defies itself and thus
speaks for the absurdity of the entire issue) of the UNControllables…”
WHAT DO THESE ANARCHISTS HAVE TO SAY FOR THEMSELVES???
Why direct action? Why occupy buildings? Can we really live without bosses, police, or capitalism?

Internationalist Books and Community Center is excited to host an awesome project called Rhythms and Rainbows for an 8 week series of workshops this spring.
Rhythms and Rainbows is a free eight-session workshop focusing on the experiences of Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Intersex-Queer (LGBTIQ), Two-Spirit (2S), and Same-Gender-Loving (SGL) youth in the Triangle community. R&R is open to people of all identities, but will focus primarily on those who identity with these communities.
Through writing, spoken word, and discussion, participants will become more aware of themselves, their peers, and their surroundings. Program graduates will gain a better understanding of performance-based advocacy by first-hand participation.
Rhythms and Rainbows will consist of Saturday workshops from 10-11:30am, March 23rd-April 11th, at Internationalist Books and Community Center. Priority is given to people of color, lower socio-economic status, and/or disability status. Must be 13-19 to participate.
