SubRosa is collaborating with Felix Kulpa II, Interference Archive, Lesbian Herstory Archives, and What Goes up must come down, to exhibit Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up. Opening Friday February 2, at 6pm. https://www.facebook.com/events/1996675690552677/
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. Requirements: Mutual respect. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market. https://www.facebook.com/events/176297329798123/
Unity Queer Skate Day at Mission Plaza Park
& Show at SubRosa in the evening!
AGAIN, WE WILL NOT BE MEETING AT SUBROSA AT 2pm. WE WILL BE MEETING AT MISSION PLAZA PARK AT 2pm. However, feel free to hang at SubRosa around 2pm as there will be a Really Free Market happening on the same day!!
from the facebook event post: Santa Cruz is a cultural hub for white/macho male, inflated ego bro's with an agenda to bash others who aren't heteronormative surf jocks or skater bois. A large proportion of the shopping in downtown Santa Cruz is made up of corporate skate and surf shops who capitalize on the culture of what normie's would consider cool and fashionable. Those who are stylistically unique, or just learning the basics of skating are often scrutinized or made fun of because of the overwhelming insecurities surrounding the collective heteronormative male ego.
In response. We are going to be hosting our VERY FIRST Queer Skateboarding Day with help from Oakland's Unity Skateboards! If this one goes well, we will be planning to make Queer Skate Day's a regular monthly event where people can come, skate, and hang out w/o getting vibed or made fun of!!

This is a formal invite to all of you queer, radical, skateboarders, rollerbladers, roller skaters, bikers, scooter kids, and the sort to come hang out with more people like yourselves! Let's have fun and roll around!!

The Bay Area Redneck Revolt is coming to Monterey to discuss their organizing vision and tactics. "Redneck Revolt was founded in 2016, as an anti-racist, anti-fascist community defense formation. To us, redneck is a term that signifies a pride in our class as well as a pride in resistance to bosses, politicians, and all those that protect domination and tyranny."
