As a resident of Alberta under a reactionary gov't which has enacted savage cuts to public service funding, I am deeply interested in taking direct action, the kind that makes suits quiver (also the positive, uplifting stuff such as starting a food collective, etc.). Yet, to publicly announce a call to all anarchists in the region is simultaneously an invitation to the local fascists (who I have actively been targeting despite their numbers seeming to swell as the comrade count seems to dwindle) as well as an invitation to the local cops, RCMP and CSIS to dig a little deeper into me.

So, with that said, what would be recommended as a safe way of meeting like-minded strangers and allies?

Check out the Wet’suwet’en solidarity rail blockade happening in Edmonton!

I think you’re right that starting with your “ism” is not necessarily the way to go... find out where cool shit is happening and get together with the people doing it

Fair and valid points. Unfortunately that was dismantled within an hour or so of me hearing about it.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
