Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. 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. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market. https://www.facebook.com/events/514453219337989/

Border Resistance Benefit Show tonight! 10/10, 7:30, for Hecate Society - Join us for a night of queer folk and big feelings! // & more!!!


This evening, Thursday October 10th, 7:30pm, Border Resistance Benefit Show for Hecate Society— Join us for a night of queer folk and big feelings!


Featuring:


~Laurence White~
Laurence is a non binary singer songwriter born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Laurence lives in Santa Cruz, California where they practice poetry, awe, and healing work.


~Chaotic Futch~
They're back, baby. And it's their birthday. https://chaoticfutch.bandcamp.com/ 


~Sophie Lev (of Superbloom)~
Sophie Lev makes music from just below the surface. They write songs that tell stories of reconciling with grief, change, and revering in the emergence of new life and self in the wake of loss. Their recent project, superbloom (with emma haas and ethan pezzolo) is about a place, a period of time, a way of thinking. It's about the incubation, the cycles from which new life can be born, the temporariness of all things and the beauty of finding oneself paralleled with a season.


~Kite Hands Glowing~
Kite Hands Glowing is the musical project of Nadia Lucia's melodies on the piano, on a guitar and through singing. Nadia practices energetic herbalism and teaches kindergarten and music is her way of weaving her dreams for the land and the water through melody and performance. She is a storyteller and advocate for rematriating indigenous life practices. Nadia feels she is grateful to share herself through music for audiences, and finds that her performance is ever-evolving. https://kitehandsglowing.bandcamp.com/ 


All proceeds will benefit Hecate Society! 

From Hecate Society:  "Hecate Society is a QTPOC* centric, femme* & youth-led, art and media collective that aims to elevate the stories of immigrants and refugees traveling to the so-called United States while simultaneously engaging in mutual aid, community organizing and coalition building inside of refugee communities. Our intention is to support refugee-run autonomous spaces in border towns and communities with high concentrations of refugees and migrants by providing support around housing, food, media, and legal aid. We emphasize working with political refugees and refugee activists who are actively engaging in direct action against the government and organizing in their communities, whether it's in detention, in Tijuana, in the US or back in their homelands. We support LGBTQ+ and vulnerable populations within the refugee community throughout their entire transition, pre, during and post detention processes in hopes that individuals can escape deathly situations and build powerful new movements within refugee communities that will fight against the US-funded pillars of injustice that are creating unlivable situations for millions of people. 


We aim to create a revolutionary paradigm for building collective power and healing trauma by using art and media. We hope to use Hecate Society as a platform that can bring decentralized support to refugees, particularly LGBTQ+ femme and youth voices to produce their own narratives and bring their own voices and stories to the forefront. We hope to acknowledge and raise awareness around how the exodus is directly intertwined with indigenous sovereignty and climate change. We believe that media and art can be used not only to reframe problematic narratives and build alternative ones, but also, as a form of therapy, to heal identity and community based trauma. The content we produce is created through a mutual exchange of ideas, using casual interviews that also serve as therapeutic and healing moments that can help us and the interviewees process traumatic experiences and beautiful experiences alike. When we build our content, we are building deeper friendships. We aim to capture the totality of people's humanity, suffering and most importantly, their resistance.


Our biggest team is on the ground in Tijuana but we also have members of the collective currently working out of Chicago, Minneapolis, Oakland and Italy.


*QTPOC: Queer, Trans, People of Color
*Femme: We use the word femme as an inclusive term that includes all trans, cis and non-binary people whom identify as femme"

Part of the way we wish to accomplish this is by prioritizing marginalized voices, including but not limited to BIPOC, Queer/Trans/Genderqueer/LGBTQ+, and disabled writers and artists.

<AND from folk at Direct Action Monterey Network ( https://www.facebook.com/DirectActionMontereyNetwork/ )... Call for submissions for zine project. "bonfire: a central coast zine of radical politics - A journal of the Direct Action Monterey Network and the Monterey Community Education Project" 

"bonfire is a 'zine committed to connecting local voices and experiences to critical thought and global struggles. As we face climate disaster, intensifying state violence, emboldened white nationalism, and globalized capitalism that enriches the few at the expense of the many, there is a rising sense that the current system is no longer tenable. Now is the time to think beyond the limits of what we are told is possible and to imagine and bring to life the kind of world that can meaningfully sustain all of us. 
Any sustainable bonfire begins with the kindling, the glowing embers that ensure that every revolutionary spark will burn longer and stronger. We are all kindling, with the ability to ignite community networks of solidarity, mutual aid, and shared political analysis to overcome the coming storms. bonfire is one step in that direction."
