A FREE UNIVERSITY

freeuniversityofla@yahoo.com

we need help with finding presenters and with promotion. see below for details.

A FREE UNIVERSITY


of


LOS ANGELES




we WILL have our own schools that are NOT designed to re-produce ignorance,

obedience, helpless docility, fear, and hate




This series of talks is intended for ALL NON-AUTHORITARIAN people of LA who would like to have a general overview of SOME of the most significant instances, movements, theories, and languages of liberation. Most importantly, we would like to discuss how various people are applying these lessons into their own actions toward liberation.

Currently, we are as ghettoized as our city! It’s time for us to come together and introduce ourselves to one another. The speakers will discuss:

the sources of their inspiration - HISTORY,

how they understand the world around them - THEORY,

and what they do about it – ACTION !



The point of the university is to provide a space for various non-authoritarian people of LA to explain/share/discuss/etc the roots of their inspirations; and then explain how some of those ideas are being applied into their existing ideas and actions.

For example, if it was learning about the Chinese peasant rebellions that initially motivated you to start a community garden project, then it would be great if you could come and talk to us about (1) the Peasant Rebellions that you know about, (2) what you found to be the most inspiring/enlightening elements of it (here you will have a chance to more explicitly express your current way of seeing the world), and (3) how that inspiration is translated into the way in which you go about building the gardens. (This is only an example of one of the ways in which this can be done. The actual presentations are completely up the speakers.)



Generally, the topics will be presented by people who use the presented ideas and lessons in their own actions. In addition to being educational, this will also give the presenters and the people of our communities the much-needed opportunity to get to know one another, build links, participate in mutual aid, and fight against the ghettoization of our city.

What YOU can do to help:

We need help with:

1) finding speakers

2) distributing flyers (promotion)

If you can help us or know anyone who might want to help/participate, PLEASE contact us as soon as possible.

Each session is going to be run by the speakers of that session! Since we are very ghettoized and know very little about one another, then it should probably be a broad intro thing, but again, it’s up to the presenters to determine how they would like to run their session. At the end of the session if the people want to get into the topic in any more depth, then, on the spot, they can agree to meet again, hopefully even branching out to turn this into a multiplicity of popular education schools.

The location of the particular talks will be up to the speakers for that week, however, if they don't have a space or don't care, we can provide a space.
