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.

***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.
