Abstract:

The following manuscript examines rhetorical artifacts that were collected at the 2002 North American Anarchist Gathering in Lawrence, Kansas. Because of the many different representations of anarchists in mainstream and alternative media I sought to examine the narrative of the gathering in order to find what representations mirrored that narrative. Were the anarchists peaceful and concerned for the environment as alternative media describes them, or were they violent and destructive as mainstream media describes them? A narrative analysis of three major pamphlets from the gathering show that there is a little truth in both representations of anarchists. The anarchist narrative is about respect for all life and nonviolence, but at the same time hitting capitalists where it hurts the most—profits. The anarchist narrative is about nonviolence and egalitarianism while hindering capitalists’ ability to manipulate workers.
