Wild Rose Collective is an anarchist organization based out of Iowa City, Iowa. We are a small group of folks who have been involved in various projects in the immediate area for the last 3 years or so. One of those projects was Wild Rose Rebellion, which was the previous, more loose and informal incarnation of WRC. Our change in name and direction reflects a long held desire for sustainable and effective work that is based on coherent long-term goals and strategy.

Who We Are
Wild Rose Collective is an anarchist organization based in Iowa City, IA. We are workers, students, parents, organizers and activists in and around this eastern Iowa university town. We are influenced by currents of Anarcho-Syndicalism, Anarchist Communism, and aspects of Marxism.
Anarchism, as we understand it, is a political theory based in establishing a society that is free from political, social and economic hierarchies. It will be brought about by the struggle between the vast, diverse working class majority of society and the tiny minority that currently rules.
We see this struggle as being waged primarily through social movements, and advocate for anti-oppressive and directly democratic forms of organizing within them. We oppose capitalism, with its drive for profits over the well-being of people and the environment, and the maintaining of social and material inequality as the basis for the capitalists’ profits. We oppose the state, and see no solutions by working within the so-called representative democratic system for social liberation.
