Greetings Friends and Comrades!

With the Northeast Anarchist Consulta fast approaching, we wanted to send out to you all a few last items. (Don't know about the Consulta? Find out more here:

1. An updated version of the proposed agenda. Please read this and feel free to comment or suggest changes as it is not set in stone: it's a proposal!

2. We have also written up a proposal for the formation of a Northeast Anarchist Network. In our proposed schedule, we reserved a slot of time at the end of the Consulta for discussion about the proposed Network. We hope you will choose to stay for this, and to bring your ideas, proposals, criticisms, dreams, etc. Some concerns were raised that for out of town folks, the slot to talk about the Network is too late for people to get home (discussion begins at 3pm). If this is the case for you, let us know! We can rearrange the schedule. We have not included the proposal in this email, as it still needs some work. If you would like to see our draft, send us an email. We will be handing out our proposal Saturday the 24th, in the morning. Also, please consider writing up your own proposals or some ideas to bring.

3. Lastly, if you are planning to come to Boston for the Consulta, please RSVP. *Especially if you need housing,* email us at Neanarchistconsulta (at) Also, we will be having a potluck, so bring some food if you can.
