Yo! For those that don't know yet, there's a Reclaim the Streets Party in Seattle that'll be going on Saturday, August 25th at 5pm (location unknown until day-of-event). |
I've been in communication with the event organizers and this event definately has a fun, celebratory atmosphere to it -- there will be no violence or property destruction here!
They have a sound system set up for music, plus free food/water/entertainment/etc. Eclectic and creative by nature. As the original post says, "free food/water/music/juggling/love/ and other assorted fun. This is a participatory party. Let your imagination run wild and free. Jump rope, drum, skateboard, blow bubbles or kisses, draw with chalk."
Although they have been communicating to Seattle Police that they are committed to non-violence, non-property-destruction, we are talking about the city that gassed and beat peaceful protesters at the WTO so as they say "anything could happen", but the ball is in the Police's court. I hope they understand we are committed to being peaceful and just let us have our fun for the evening.
Personally, I got enough of a good vibe from the organizers as to the nature of the event to commit to bringing my bus up there. So! If you want to go up there, contact me and I can give you a free ride. I've only got room for maybe ten people though, so let me know early. It should go without saying that only those committed to non-violence/non-property destruction should apply!
Even if I fill up, Greyhound round trip is pretty cheap, or maybe you can coordinate mass carpooling with others. I definately reccomend going up there for this event. Advance word is that it's going to be huge and not-to-be-missed.
