Really Really Free Market

Not Saturday, March 3rd, 12pm - 3pm
(note: rescheduled due to rain // 
now on Saturday, March 10th)

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; we can help you set up if you let us know before hand). Come and take what you can use. 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.

The Gentleman Bank Robber: film screening

Saturday, March 3rd, 7pm - 8:30pm

"The Gentleman Bank Robber: The Story of Butch Lesbian Freedom Fighter rita bo brown" is a portrait of revolutionary rita bo brown, a white working class butch from rural Oregon who became known as "The Gentleman Bank Robber" in the 1970s for combining her butch style of dress with a polite way of demanding funds from bank tellers. The film moves between everyday moments with bo in and around her current home in Oakland, California, and historical retelling of the events of bo's extraordinary life through interviews with bo and her collaborators, archival materials, and rare social movement ephemera. The Gentleman Bank Robber weaves together personal and political perspectives on 20th century social movement histories, including queer liberation in the 1960s; militant, underground activity with the George Jackson Brigade in the 1970s, a revolutionary prison abolitionist group; political prisoner support work in the 1980s, and prison activist work into the present day. bo brown is a model for how to lead a life of committed activism while maintaining a sense of humor and humanity.

***And I wanted to let you know about a great book that we have for sale at SubRosa entitled Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds  by adrienne maree brown...and about the book..."Inspired by Octavia Butler's explorations of our human relationship to change, Emergent Strategy is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help designed to shape the futures we want to live. Change is constant. The world is in a continual state of flux. It is a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change, this book invites us to feel, map, assess, and learn from the swirling patterns around us in order to better understand and influence them as they happen. This is a resolutely materialist "spirituality" based equally on science and science fiction, a visionary incantation to transform that which ultimately transforms us."   I have found this book to be very thought provoking and inspiring...the kind of book that is on my mind when I'm thinking about my life and the way I and friends do things in the world at this crucial time.
