Saturday April 19th, 12-3pm- Really Really Free Market

Saturday April 19th, 12-3pm-  
Really Really Free Market

No money. No trades. Everything is free. 

This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism sucks. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited.  
If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

Tues. 4/15 at 8pm- A Night of Great Music!

Tuesday April 15th at 8pm
A Night of Music with
Stone Crowe and Sag on Tour!
and Friends from Santa Cruz

Stone Crowe- folksters, playing radical tunes on acoustic instruments, no amplification beyond a crowd shouting in unison, with celtic and bluegrass infuences weaving acoustic guitar, a capella chanting, spoken word, your voice and your feet together in what can only be called a breathtaking gamble.  http://www.reverbnation.com/stonecrowe from Portland


Sirqueen sagitta-
an auditory assault wielding an acoustic guitar and a set of pipes that you just can't miss (they won't miss you, in any case). vulnerable and ferocious, unnerving and invariably compelling, saggita is the difference between fire-wood and fire-did.  https://soundcloud.com/sir-queen from Portland


Burl Woods- shadowy earth folk drifting off a mountain porch (from the Gembrokers and so much more!) http://thegembrokers.com/ and http://gembrokers.bandcamp.com/ ) from SC

Nicole- playing with Burl and with her own spoken word offerings, like a misty morning in a redwood forest (from Madrona and also so much more) from SC

In the Winds- spells dreams and heartstrings by jessie james briar birdcall http://inthewinds.bandcamp.com/ from SC and yonder

come on out and participate in the songs of our age: narratives of radical counter-cultural challenges, stories of better times on the horizon (or just below it), and some oooooold dirt-grubbin' sepia-toned hardy folk tunes.


This is a fundraising tour for saggita's top surgery!
so bring $ and no one turned away

BLACK ORPHEUS (Orfeu Negro)
Friday, March 28th, 8pm
at SubRosa, 703 Pacific Ave.

BLACK ORPHEUS (Orfeu Negro) A retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during the time of the Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. Orfeo is a trolley conductor and musician, engaged to Mira.

Portuguese with English subtitles. Rated PG

This series is an opportunity to come together, to watch engaging films and also to engage each other, to share thoughts and experiences, and to create more of an overlap of the many social circles that exist in this town.  More info at http://www.guerilladrivein.org/

2 great upcoming events, Sat. and Wed.

-Saturday March 15th, 12-3pm- Really Really Free Market

No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism sucks. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Mutual respect. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.


-Wednesday March 19th, 7-9pm- When the State Attacks, using organizing models that are built to withstand political repression with Garrett Fitzgerald, traveling from Minneapolis MN, formerly charged with terrorism as an RNC8 defendant and an organizer against state repression.

Amidst a political climate where people face prison time, unprecedented surveillance, and terrorist charges for their beliefs and actions in solidarity with each other and the earth, it seems ever more important to engage together to create organizing models that are build to withstand state repression.


State repression is an inevitable response to our empowered communities acting in defense of the land, water, and one another. How can our organizing lay the groundwork to stand up to the states' attempts to undermine our efforts? And once repression is happening, how can our communities respond in a way that is strengthening and advances our struggles? Join us for this presentation and discussion to talk about these questions and more.

and community information...

*The Spring Free Skool Calendar is out now! You can find calendars around town or download it here. Lots of great classes are happening in the days ahead. There are many opportunities to learn about and explore ourselves and the world around us in the company of others.  You can download the calendar at https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2014/03/10/18752412.php and more info at free skool in-your-facebook

**Also of note:  some folks who have the forest related classes in the Free Skool calendar (some are detailed above) also have their own Forest Walks Calendar for Spring! 

You can check it out by going to their facebook page and website.  http://facebook.com/saveuppercampus and http://saveuppercampus.org/ 

***Remember!  Support the Santa Cruz 11!  The Santa Cruz Eleven are local community members who have been charged with an unprecedented variety of offenses arising from their alleged involvement with the occupation of a long-time vacant bank building late last fall, 2011.  Four of the eleven still face charges over two years later.  It is often a strategy of the court to draw things out and strain defendants to the point of taking whatever is offered, and we see vocal and on-going support as important not only to the defendants but in highlighting the poor state of our justice system.
