Open Letter From Assata Shakur
13 May 2005
My name is Assata Shakur, and I am a 20th century escaped slave.

“ El sistema de segmentación posfordista que está llevando a cabo Kirchner no sólo ha hecho caducar el obsoleto sistema de representación populista y neocorporativo, sino las estrategias disfuncionales de la vieja izquierda. La respuesta organizativa del área autónoma debe estar a la altura de las nuevas subjetividades y de la materialidad de la nueva composición de clase. ”

Indymedia Local Reporting Workshop Friday 5/13 7pm
11 May 2005
Indymedia will be hosting free local reporting workshops every second and fourth Friday this summer at our Chinatown office.

The first informal class/workshop will be this Friday from 7 to 9pm.

Our office is at
33 Harrison Ave.
4th Floor
in the UNITEhere building.

(at the intersection of Harrison and Beach near the Chinatown, Downtown Crossing and Boylston T stops, right in the middle of Chinatown.)

Folks should bring a recent sample of their writing if they have one, just so we can get an idea of where people are starting.

We will discuss some ideas and maybe do a short writing exercise, the class will have some structure but open to change.

There will also be a handout for folks to read for our next workshop about newsthinking...

Whatever your level of experience these workshops should be fun and productive. In future meetings we can critique each others stories, find out about writer's resources, have visits from working activist/journalists, and challenge each other with speedy assignments.
