Militant kindergarten

Militant Kindergarten is an annual 15-week seminar hosted by the Center for Especifismo Studies. This seminar uses Social Anarchism and Organisation by FARJ, an important text of the especifista anarchist tendency, to learn about and cultivate anarchist theory, strategy, and militancy through group discussion. Militant Kindergarten occurs online beginning every January.
