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!" 

-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

"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."

J20 General Strike Santa Cruz, Friday January 20th
(from "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!

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!"

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
