Dreamy tender anarchist space in north portland. "At least they spelled it right" -Ursula K LeGuin (for real!)

Open hours: Thursday-Sunday 12pm - 6pm.

From 1895-1904, The Firebrand existed as an anarchist newspaper started by a family of farmers in Portland, Oregon. Along with serving as a radical hub of the West Coast they promoted civil disobedience, free love and women's rights. As the newly formed Firebrand Collective we hope to pay homage to our political ancestors and keep the candles lit with our passion for freedom, equality, art and education.

The Firebrand Collective has opened a radical hub in North Portland called Anarres Infoshop. The infoshop is intended to serve as an inclusive social and political multi-use center, available for people living in the city to utilize for their projects and needs. This will also function as an archival library for music, radical literature, and information about resources in the city.

In addition to being a physical location for groups to meet and for access to information, Anarres will also be an all-ages music venue, event space, and social center. Anarres Infoshop strives to maintain a political atmosphere that stands in opposition to capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and other systems of oppression and hierarchy. The infoshop aims to create a space that meets the needs of our community while also focusing on the needs of those most affected by systemic violence.

    Screening of Submedia's Trouble: Episodes 3 & 4

    Come catch up on subMedia's Trouble, a monthly documentary series on social resistance around the word. We will be screening and discussing two episodes from the series: #3 Refugees Welcome and #4 No Justice, Just Us.

    Episode 3 - Refugees Welcome: Solidarity Across Borders As our world stands on the precipice of more destabilizing wars waged over declining resources, a deepening of structural economic inequality and the onset of cataclysmic climate change, dramatic movements of human populations are inevitable. What is not yet inevitable is how humanity will respond to this crisis. This episode features interviews with a number of individuals from around the world who are helping to chart a course for the future based on living practices of solidarity and mutual aid, and who are invested in tearing down the physical and imaginary borders that seek to keep us divided.

    Episode 2: No Justice, Just Us: Movements Against State Repression The institutional pillars of domination and exploitation are well-entrenched in society, well-versed in manipulation, and utterly ruthless in their efforts to crush any and all threats to their legitimacy. Our future success and growth demands that we develop the capacity to anticipate the strategies and tactics that the state will use against us, build our own infrastructure to defend against these attacks, and incorporate meaningful solidarity and collective defense into all facets of our organizing. This episode of Trouble interviews a number of individuals engaged in legal defense and prisoner solidarity, and looks at some of the ways we can begin to build movements that are more resilient in the face of state repression.

    Screening of Submedia's Trouble: Episodes 1 & 2

    Come catch up on subMedia's Trouble, a monthly documentary series on social resistance around the word. We will be screening and discussing the first two episodes of the series: Killing the Black Snake and Bash the Fash.

    Episode 1: Killing the Black Snake: Behind the Scenes of the #NODAPL Struggle Explore beyond the mainstream narratives surrounding the Standing Rock encampment to get a better understanding of some of the camp’s overlooked dynamics, including serious disagreements over which tactics to use to best stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

    Episode 2: Bash the Fash Reactionary right-wing politics are on the rise in the west, and events are moving at a dangerous pace. In the wake of Trump’s ascendency to the US presidency, a toxic mix of white nationalism, Islamophobia, transphobia, violent misogyny, and anti-migrant hysteria is rapidly coalescing into a growing movement that has in turn sparked a surge of interest in anti-fascist organizing.

    Water Protectors - Part 1: A Call For Support

    Anarres Infoshop

    We Have Not Forgotten You: WATER PROTECTORS Part 1: A Call For Support

    We are bombarded by media. News of school shootings, atrocities against humanity, and environmental catastrophe can be overwhelming. Sometimes it seems there’s no way to help. As a society we must not accept this as truth.

    Last year the Dakota access pipeline was imposed on Native lands and threatened sacred water. Many people came from all walks of life to stand in solidarity and join their native communities to protect sacred lands, our life force, and all future generations.

    I have heard people say “Standing Rock is over” this is not true, especially for the people who gave up their livelihood and left their communities and familes to offer themselves to defend what they knew in their hearts to be a just cause. They faced brutalized police force, harsh weather conditions, and inprisionment. Many are suffering from PTSD. Some are in prison. Some must travel back there to defend themselves in our judicial system. When a soldier returns from war there are organizations and services that help support and honor them. We must rise up as a collective community and be that support system for these water protectors. With our actions we must show them that they are not forgotten.

    This first event will focus on supporting 8 water protectors as they struggle with travel fees to attend their court dates. It will also fund care packages for those who are in prison.

    There will be a slideshow presentation, a speech from Candi Brings Plenty, music, and an art sale. The space seats about 30 plus standing room.

    Please give priority to children, elders, and alter abled persons!

    $8 suggested donation No one will be turned away

    Can’t make it? Stay tuned as “In Solidarity We Stand” continues to support Native communities, Black communities, People of Color, Immigrants, People Living in Poverty, Animals, and our Earth Mother.
