Info about community happenings this week (+) - Abolition Fair & Join the Santa Cruz Food Protectors

Info about the Abolition Fair happening this week in Santa Cruz (some offerings online).  Here's more info (from -- "Abolitious is a group of Santa Cruz BIPOC community members who came together to learn about the history, politics, and practice of abolition. The idea for an Abolition Fair was devised by Abolitious, a group in Santa Cruz, California studying abolition together. We followed Abolition Journal's 6-week multimedia study guide to learn about the histories of the prison industrial complex, mass incarceration, police brutality and the ongoing struggle towards liberation from systems of harm. We join the abolitionists who have advanced this work for decades and welcome new partners in our study and action." AND go to for more info and to register for aspects online.

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.
