Whenever we envision a world without war, prisons, or capitalism, we are producing speculative fic-tion. Organizers and activists envision, and try to create, such worlds all the time. Walidah Imarisha and adrienne maree brown have brought 20 of them together in the first anthology of short stories to explore the connections between radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. These visionary tales span genres, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, magical realism, but all are united by an attempt to inject a healthy dose of imagination and innovation into our political practice and to try on new ways of understanding ourselves, the world around us, and all the selves and worlds that could be.

Portland residents in two separate neighborhoods engaged in civil disobedience today to stop ancient trees from being cut down by developer Vic Remmers.
A neighborhood group in Southeast Portland has banded together to stop the cutting of two old-growth trees near 41st Avenue and Clinton Street. The trees are on a property owned by developer Vic Remmers.
Last month, Remmers’ company, Everett Custom Homes, demolished the single home on the lot, a structure that was built over 100 years ago. Remmers plans to build three new houses on the lot.
To make room for the new development, two of the four old-growth Douglas Firs on the lot, including the largest of the four, were cut down on Saturday.
