Re: Thousands Rally on Boston Common

Hi people
I'm the poetess spokenword artist who did the piece with the human beat box. How you doing? Ive been reading carefully allong for a while now.
Myself and Nate (the humanbeatbox) went to the police station with Alison (of MOBE) and two of the Legal observers. We hung out there with these dudes familys allong with ABC, Lawyers Guild folks, Eve (from MOBE) and Chuck Turner till all were released. Dan the Bagel man and Steve Isk. were there as well, and everyone was friendly with each other, no silly infighting.. just there to free the imponded and see if they were ok. nyway, noone else was there with us at the Jail. Noone else from the marchers, etc. We saw the money collected from the crowd get given directly to ABC and used to pay bail, allong with witnessing the massive generocity of the sisters & bros of AnarchistsBlackCross, a group I hadenbt ever heard of till Sun.
I'm still impressed by that act, and by Chuck Turner MARCHING w the unpermitted march, then standing up inbetween Cops and the youth they sought to beat or arrest, and going over to the Jail, and staying there till 1030pm or so. I really liked his vibe.
So, Im writing to say I wrote soem e-mail to Chuck, and he replyed that he would LOVE to hold an open session for all those activists and anarchist youth, marchers, etc. who would like to attend and rap w him personally.

He is willing and wanting to meet with y'all to discuss and share tactics of street organizing, marches, and how to handle the cops, press, situation stratigys, etc.

Who would like to attend such a thing and ask Chuck questions/ talk informally with him?

I mean, hey: Why Not?

Why not ask questions directly to those with feet in halls of power who show all of us that they care?

Why not learn from elder activists who have the street cred and heart and guts left in them to march with youth?

Who wants to meet up w Chuck Turner?
Lemme know! =)
