community building


Anarchist Carpentry Collective is teaming up with City Repair to make displays for earth day. Anarchist Cooking and Baking Collective is hookin up with the Ninja house ta make food for the thousand folks expected to attend the festivities. We're all down ta promote localization- and community based control, as the alternitive ta corperate hemogany, and the murder promoted by the US government.

OK the city repair project is doing an installation/presentation on reclaiming urban space for comunity- it's gonna be kinda showy for earth days sake- I believe that they're getting materials from the rebuilding center among other places. They want ours and your help. According ta some of our wobbly bros that attended the first A.C.C. meeting City Repair is interested in building shelter for immigrant workers. This was brought up in response to a preposal at our meeting that we do/organize this in the future. City Repair is interested in promoting localization, and community building as an alternitive to the corperate hemogany promoted by the government.

They deleted 10 of the 500 posts you average a day? I could give a fuck. Most likely there was a glich and it just didn't go through, but even if they did I would appluad it. Criticism and discussion are welcomed, pure attemts at abuse of a community tool are not. You have nothing to say beyond "hippies suck", so we really don't to put up with you saying it after every article that's posted. Get a life, I mean how much time do you waste writing these comments on every article on a news site you hate? You don't make any sense.

Day? 16.Apr.2003 09:22


Article listed Earth Day Celebration as happening on Sat. April 19.

Actually Sat. is April 20.

Is the Earth Day Celebration happening on Friday April 19 or Saturday April 20?

EARTH DAY IS SATURDAY. 16.Apr.2003 11:57


Earth day is saturday this is just info and contacts to get involved. If folks are doing the building activities they're welcome to bring building tools and painting gear to the Divincy school. It sounds like they've got some gear but it doesn't hurt to come prepaired.

See ya sooon!
