Some folks want to organize an Anarchist Carpentry Collective This is a call to (A)rt for the media we'll be doin to organize this collective. Here's the lowdown: A number of folks have approached me about the rumor that I'd like ta organize for this collective. At least one person has tentitivly agreed to sponsor it with tools. We've got a good space and some power tools.

Take donations for trade of works we craft. Use this to get tools, and to fund yer A.C.T. fund. Work to meet carpentry needs of the Anarchist community. Empower folks to explore Anarchist/DIY ideas. Promote the dual strategy against nations and global industry.

HOW YOU CAN HELP- We need art that expresses the love and craftsmanship we Anarchists are gonna put into our works.
