So I woke up to this. Truly surprised- like a surprise birthday that actually was a surprise. Thanks Austin Chronicle!
Amidst the surge of an activist renaissance in Austin, cott crow (intentionally uncapitalized) takes the cake. But not literally, because he's a good anarchist and wants bread, not cake, for the people. Equally amicable as his political counterpoint Alex Jones is loud, he's been characterized by NPR as a "living legend among anarchists" for helping found the Common Ground Collective - an anarchist-inspired relief group that delivered crucial aid in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. His recent book, Emergency Hearts, Molotov Dreams: A scott crow Reader, surveys conversations and essays from a lifetime of organizing and grassroots strategy.
