Calling all anarchists, autonomistas, anti-authoritarians, and Zapatistas! Clear your calendars!
North East Mutual Aid is an informal network of anti-capitalist anti-authoritarians. Our purpose is to open lines of communication so that existing groups and individuals throughout the Northeast can better coordinate support for each other in our local actions and struggles.
May 8 in NYC will be an opportunity for you to share energy, resources, information, and inspiration with other anti-authoritarians. Together we will implement, utilize, and broaden the network.
On January 1, 2004, on the 10-year anniversary of the Zapatista Uprising, an anonymous call went out for a self-organized PGA-style network in North America. In the Northeast, work and momentum has built from the Strategy Session in Worcester, MA (December 6, 2003), the NCOR Conference (January 24-25, 2004) and the Gathering for Autonomy in Hartford, CT (February 28-29).
Drop us a line if you plan on attending, if you're interested in performing at the show on the evening of May 8, or if you're interested in doing a workshop on May 9. We will also be accepting proposals for the structure of the network (2 pages max). We need all registrations, suggestions, and workshop-proposals in by May 1.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. Childcare will also be provided and parents must register their children by May 1. Bring a $10-20 donation to cover meeting costs if you can ---no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
