Jan 19-21, Binghamton, NY, Tentative dates for northeast Unconventional Action convergence

Greetings & Solidarity from the Upstate Uprise Unconventional Action Faction,

Martin Luther King, Jr Day weekend, January 19-21st, are tentative dates for a
northeast Unconventional Action convergence in Binghamton, New York to network
anti-authoritarians for the protests against the 2008 Democratic & Republican
National Conventions.

While plans are still coming together, we wanted to give people a heads up and
start getting the word out. Several groups/individuals are working on
announcements & info about logistics that will come soon!


What Is Unconventional Action?

Unconventional Action is an emerging network aiming to complement the work of
local organizers in Denver and the Twin Cities with regional organizing
throughout the rest of the country. Our goal is to build a horizontal,
inclusive framework for protests that will disrupt the upcoming Democratic and
Republican National Conventions. We are currently organizing meetings,
propaganda, and consultas in our communities and encourage those in other
regions to do the same...

We invite others who share our goals to organize under the name Unconventional
Action. Unconventional Action is an umbrella name available to all who agree
with our points of unity..

The name Unconventional Action is available to all who:

* Reject all forms of hierarchy including capitalism, party communism,
patriarchy, white supremacy, colonialism, and so-called representational
* Organize on a non-hierarchical, consensus-based basis that promotes
autonomy, solidarity, grass-roots involvement, and the agency of those most
affected by each decision
* Embrace a diversity of tactics
* Do not condemn any action on the grounds that it is illegal alone

National Conventions:

There will likely be a small, sub-regional gathering of the North East
Anarchist Network alongside the Unconventional Action consulta.

"The Northeast Anarchist Network (NEaN) is a recently formed network of
anarchists and anti-authoritarian organizations and individuals that has been
meeting and collaborating since February of 2007. Comprising groups and
individuals from 7 sub-regions in the northeast our aim is to create a
regional, horizontal organizing network in the Northeast, linking those
committed to struggles anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist and
anti-oppressive." - NEaN October Rebellion call to action


Raise the resistance!
