Funeral for Capitalism (Photo: AK Press)

We recently held an important funeral here in Oakland: for capitalism. There weren’t any tears that I could see. Paul Dalton, one of the organizers—and a former AK Press collective member—wrote a moving “dyslegy” (anti-eulogy) for the not-so-dearly departed.  Read it and don’t weep. I’ve also included a short video of the event. You can hear/see Daphne Gottlieb reading Paul’s words toward the end…just before the grave dancing begins.

An Anti-Eulogy: We gather together today not to praise capitalism, but to bury it
