Call For No-DNC Spokes!!

The Bl(A)ck Tea Society is calling for no-dnc spokescouncil meetings to be held on Monday (7/26) and Wednesday (7/28) from 7pm to 9pm.

The Monday spokes will cover the entire week (including the Bazaar), while the Wednesday spokes will focus on the Thursday Day Of Action.

Both spokes will take place at the Alternative Village (Convergence Center): Community Church Of Boston 565 Boylston St. Boston, MA 02116

Map and Directions: http://www.commchurch.org/directions.htm

Bazaar: http://www.blackteasociety.org/bostonguide/

Day Of Action: http://www.blackteasociety.org/day_of_action.php

Alternative Village: http://www.blackteasociety.org/convergence_center.php

What Is A Spokescouncil?

At spokescouncil meeting, affinity groups select a 'spoke' to act as their spokesperson. Decisions made at spokes are not binding, affinity groups still maintain their autonomy and are free to choose their own tactics, actions etc. These two meeting will allow the local organizers to get everyone else up to speed, share resources, answer questions and in general facilitate co-operation between groups.

This is NOT a place to discuss (argue, debate) tactics or strategies.

As in our internal meetings, we operate on anti-authoritarians principles and consensus. We ask that all groups and persons coming to spokes respect the facilitation process. Disruptive individuals will be asked to leave the space.

All Anti-Authoritarians are welcome and encouraged to come and participate.

Absolutely NO members of the police or government agencies are allowed.

Absolutely NO member of the media are allowed.

For the entire week, the Alternative Village is a Safe Space. Sexism, racism, homophobia, aggressive behavior, drunkenness, verbal, physical, or sexual abuse/harassment will not be tolerated. This, of course, includes the spokescouncil meeting.
