We at SubRosa are thrilled to have folks from Monterey that are a part of The Direct Action Monterey Network (DAMN) come to Santa Cruz to host a series of discussions at the space. More info at https://directactionmontereynetwork.wordpress.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/DirectActionMontereyNetwork
"This series of seminar sessions has been put together to encourage the exchange of ideas, experiences, and knowledge surrounding a particular topic or theme. We believe that everyone can have something to offer to the seminars as we move through current debates in politics and different political and social theories." https://www.facebook.com/events/921367114604834/
In case someone wants to read up on it beforehand, the readings are posted online for free on their website here: https://directactionmontereynetwork.wordpress.com/projects/thinking-critically-about-society/
Letter Writing to Prisoners
This is a place to write letters to prisoners. Anyone is welcome to stop by and write a letter. Pamphlets, letter writing material, info on penpals, & snax provided. This is a good place for new penpals to jump in. "Writing to prisoners is not charity, as we on the outside have as much to gain from these relationships as the prisoners." -NYC Anarchist Black Cross firstname.lastname@example.org

Really Really Free Market:
No money. No trades. Everything is free.
This market is based on a gift-economy and thinks capitalism is terrible. 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.

The Promise of Anarchism
An International Panel Discussion
This panel brings together organizers from Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and North America to discuss the significance of anarchist ideas and tactics in the 21st century.
The participants will compare experiences from the wave of protests and uprisings that has swept the world since 2010—exploring the role of demand-based politics in both catalyzing and limiting movements, examining a variety of forms of repression, and critically evaluating experiments with direct democracy. They will conclude by assessing the prospects of contemporary struggles for self-determination in an era of globalized capitalism and state control.
All of the presenters are contributors to a recent outreach and dialogue project, To Change Everything, which appeared earlier this year in over twenty languages. More info about the project is at http://www.crimethinc.com/tce/
