Friday: Art Show Opening AND Saturday: A Benefit Show!

Friday, Feb 3rd, 6-9pm:  Art Show Opening: Songs For Silence // artwork by Gabriel Saloman // https://www.facebook.com/events/1261773747276670/


    On May 1, 2012, anarchists and other anti-captialist, anti-racist and queer activists took to the streets of Seattle attacking corporate property and vandalizing the courthouse building in a wild and uncontrollable display of resistance and resentment. In the months that followed a federal grand jury investigation led to the harassment and arrest of dozens of anarchists in the Pacific Northwest. Several were forced into prison in an attempt to coerce them into collaborating with the state. Most of them refused and became celebrated internationally as “the Silent Ones.”

Songs for Silence are a collection of artworks made during this time that reflect on the difficulty of articulating anger at the police; the violence of the grand jury system, the police and imprisonment; the visual cultures of protest and the ways in which the police attempt to respond by their own “exhibitions” of evidence.

GABRIEL SALOMAN is a Santa Cruz based musician, artist, writer and educator. As an artist he has exhibited internationally, both individually and in various collaborations such as Red76, The STAG Library and the Lower Mainland Painting Co. Recent exhibitions of his work have taken place at 221a, Unit/Pitt Projects (both Vancouver) and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto) and he is the co-creator with Justin Langlois of Neighborhood Time Exchange (Philadelphia). His current work focuses on the production of visual artworks from time-based phenomena such as sound composition, dance, social practices and protest. He received an MFA from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts and is currently a PHD candidate at University of California Santa Cruz’s History of Consciousness program.

Why General Strike? (A Primer) from https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2017/01/09/18795228.php

We must fight systems of oppression together in our society.

On the Day of Trump's Election, spontaneous protests broke out across the United States. People saw the danger represented in Trump's politics and refused to comply with business as usual. Out of those protests, a nationwide call has gone out for a General Strike on the day of the Presidential Inauguration, January 20th.

What is a General Strike? Why a General Strike?

A General Strike is a political action in which the general population refuses to engage in work, they close the doors to their workplaces and their schools. Born out of early 20th century labor movements, we can thank General Strikes for the 8 hour workday, minimum wage, and the weekend, among other accomplishments.

The General Strike is one of the strongest political tools that the people have at our disposal. General Strikes have the power to force governments to their knees. Just in these past few months: a General Strike forced the South Korean President to resign, a General Strike forced the Polish government to roll back restrictive anti-choice legislation.

Our political system only offers limited input for ordinary people in the form of voting and lobbying our "elected representatives." When it fails the people, we have little recourse to act within the system. A General Strike has the power to bring the system to a halt, to force those in power to hear the people.

In addition to the disruptive power of the General Strike, it is also a demonstration of solidarity. Trump won an election based on hate and fear. We seek to overcome that hate and fear with mutual respect and love. With Solidarity. By joining together in the General Strike we show that we are able to overcome a politics based on individualistic difference. We will stand together and defend each other in the face of misogynistic and racist attacks, cuts to social services, environmental catastrophe, and impoverishment.

Instead of being forced to rely on a broken system that only offers false choices between hatred and corruption, by striking we show that we are ready and able to build a new order. One that is not based on hate, fear, and profit, one that is built on solidarity, mutual-aid, and respect. When we do not work, when we do not go to school, when we do not allow business as usual, we show that we will not allow politics as usual to rule us. We will not allow a racist, misogynistic billionaire to rule us.

It is important to not normalize Donald Trump's governance. A first step to building a meaningful opposition to his rule is to make sure the day is not a normal work day. We have no illusions that not going to work on January 20th is going to bring down the Trump administration and systems of oppression in a single day. But striking together is the first step towards building the meaningful solidarities and organization that will allow us to actually oppose and survive his administration.

Sin Barras // Out of the Broom Closet // HUFF // J20 General Strike Info // & More!

-Monday, Jan 16th, 7:15pm: Sin Barras meeting

    From their website "We will discuss ways that Sin Barras can support local and state-wide abolitionist campaigns and how we can further support loved ones inside and their families. We will also discuss what's going right here in Santa Cruz County. So please, bring your ideas and your desire to end the prison industrial complex!" https://sinbarras.org/ 

-Tuesday, Jan 17th, 6pm:  Out of the Broom Closet: reading/discussion/practice group at the intersection of magic, spirit & politics //  January's Out of the Broom Closet will be looking to our Ancestors of Path for inspiration, vision and courage moving forward.

     Tupac Amaru Shakur // We'll likely be joined in person by Heathen Chinese, the author of this article for the Wild Hunt, to discuss radical ideas of ancestry (including how to engage with "problematic" aspects of ancestors) as embodied by the rapper and child of the Black Panthers, Tupac Amaru Shakur.

Reading at http://wildhunt.org/2016/09/column-tupac-amaru-shakur.html

"Twenty years ago, on Sept. 7, 1996, the rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur was shot in Las Vegas at the age of 25. He is reported to have died in the hospital six days later, on Sept. 13. Conspiracy theories abound that his death was staged and that he is still alive and in hiding. But while the line between death and life may seem absolute to secularists, death doesn't mean the same thing to polytheists and spirit workers, for whom 'there is no death, only a change of worlds.' Whether or not he is currently embodied, Tupac's legacy is undeniable. From Los Angeles to Rio De Janeiro, he is honored as an ancestor. For ancestry is not merely biological, but relational: one becomes an ancestor by being honored by one's descendants."

-Wednesday, Jan 18th:  couple things going on...

J20 General Strike Santa Cruz, Friday January 20th
(from https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2017/01/09/18795228.php) "On January 20, join people in Santa Cruz and at least 30 other cities across the US who will walk out of schools, step off the job, and come out of their homes in a Nationwide General Strike. Come together to say

* NO to racist violence // * NO to bigotry // * NO to misogyny //* NO to religious intolerance // * NO to Trump // * YES to a safe and inclusive community // * YES to climate action // * YES to collective organizing.

Students will be marching from UCSC and other schools, arriving at the Clock Tower around noon. This will be followed by an afternoon of workshops, teach-ins, art in action, music, and a final General Assembly at 5pm at the Clock Tower to discuss and plan for the future.

The Santa Cruz General Strike is a call for solidarity, for caring, for community defense, for organizing kid-friendly action! Everyone is welcome!

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GeneralStrikeSC/ // Website: https://santacruzgeneralstrike.wordpress.com/

The election is over, but the resistance begins now.

Trump ran a campaign based on racism and misogyny, and now his dangerous words are becoming actions. He promised change but has filled his administration with the usual suspects: Wall Street billionaires, corrupt politicians, and even white supremacists like Steve Bannon and Senator Jeff Sessions. This is not the change we need, and we must not normalize his actions.

Trump has called for mass deportations of undocumented immigrants, for attacking unions and workers' rights, for taking away the right to choose, and even for cutting climate-change research after 2016 will be the hottest year on record.

Nobody can afford to "give Trump a chance." This is why on Inauguration Day, January 20th, 2017, millions around the country are planning to launch a general strike: a full day of no work, no school, and no business-as-usual.

We are not just anti-Trump, but against our violent economy. We aren't campaigning for a new president, but no more presidents. We want dignity. Our demand is everything. We will not stop until equality is achieved, and a general strike is just the first step. Organize with us, join us.

We are a loose collation of people from many different walks of life, including UC students and professors, but also local employees and surfers. Local activists and parents. Radicals and moderates. Tech workers and teachers. Join with us in striking hate out. Help Santa Cruz Resist!"

Out of the Broom Closet: Ancestors of Path for January

greetings!  here is info for the radical/magical-reading/practice group for january that a few of us in the SubRosa collective (along with other friends) are hosting at SubRosa. please come if you are interested.

OUT OF THE BROOM CLOSET is a reading/discussion/practice group that is open to anyone with curiosity and respect. The intention of this group is to meet regularly with community, share ideas, learn and practice together at the intersection magic, spirit & politics in order to build capacity, intimacy and a framework for other branches of collaboration to be created and supported.

January's Out of the Broom Closet will be looking to our Ancestors of Path for inspiration, vision and courage moving forward. Ancestors of Path are persons who may not be our blood relations, but whose life and work gave birth to us as radical magical creatures. When so many of us feel rootless and disconnected from our cultures and ancestors, especially as settlers or survivors of wounded families, it's important to be able to connect to our ancestors who have followed similar paths through the modern world and who may have cleared the way for our own wild adventures to come.  https://www.facebook.com/subrosaproject/posts/10154966164150719:0\

-Monday, Jan 9th, 4pm:  Worlding the Gods // An article by Rhyd Wildermuth looking at how we manifest our gods - and our ancestors - through our offerings and our altars.

Reading at https://paganarch.com/2016/02/18/worlding-the-gods/ // Also please think of an ancestor of path and come prepared to share a little.  // https://www.facebook.com/events/1838680689706845/

"'What is remembered, lives' means exactly this; by remembering, we continue the life past the moment of death into ourselves. My grandfather lives on not because I remember him, but rather, in my act of remembering, I perpetuate his existence. And by telling others about him, I world him into others."

________________________________________________________

-(last week) Tuesday, Jan 3rd, 6pm: Pamela Coleman Smith // A biographical article + a short guide to reading her Tarot... from the Pixie's mouth! // https://www.autostraddle.com/fools-journey-the-fascinating-life-of-pamela-colman-smith-267673/ //  https://marygreer.wordpress.com/2008/03/05/pixie-smith-on-reading-the-cards/

"For those who don't know the name, Pamela Colman Smith, she's the artist behind the most popular tarot deck in the western world, the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot or RWS. This deck is generally referred to as the Rider Waite Tarot, omitting Colman Smith's name. As an artist, she changed the face of tarot, illustrating the world's first "mass market" deck. And hers was one of the very first to have illustrations on every card in the deck. Her work inspired my life to take this whole different direction, and if you're reading this, it's probably had an impact on yours too. Despite this, she died penniless, in obscurity, as so many women artists did and do. But she was a fascinating, truly original woman, and I want to celebrate her life and give thanks for her work in this article."

(from j!...we already met and i wanted to still include the readings in this email.  we had such a great discussion and sharing and went deep into a card each of us chose.  i also want to refer to the tarot that Pamela Coleman Smith worked on as the Smith-Waite deck from now on and read the articles to find out why.)

-Monday, Jan 23rd, 4pm:  Darryl Cherney // A biographical article + short interview from RE:Search's Modern Pagans with long time Earth First! activist and folk musician, Darryl Cherney:

Readings at http://www.northcoastjournal.com/021705/cover0217.html and https://web.archive.org/web/20060813150102/http://www.researchpubs.com/books/mpex_cherney.php

"Earth First's slogan, 'No compromise in defense of Mother Earth,' implies that an ant can move an elephant if it gets a leverage or fulcrum point sufficiently far away. And we're ants trying to move an elephant--rather, a planet. So we have to get pretty far out there on the edge of the spectrum."


________________________________________________________

-Tuesday, Jan 31st, 6pm:  Fredy Perlman // Anarchist ancestor and more info to come on the readings for this week

"Fredy Perlman (August 20, 1934 – July 26, 1985) was a Czech-born, naturalized American author, publisher, professor, and activist. His most popular work, the book Against His-Story, Against Leviathan!, details the rise of state domination with a retelling of history through the Hobbesian metaphor of the Leviathan. The book remains a major source of inspiration for anti-civilisation perspectives in contemporary anarchism. Though Perlman detested ideology and would claim that the only "-ist" he would respond to was cellist, his work both as an author and publisher has been very influential on modern anarchist thought." (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fredy_Perlman)
