The White House has just announced that the U.S. will host a major international meeting of NATO, the US-commanded and financed 28-nation military alliance, in Chicago from May 15 to May 22, 2012. It was further announced that at the same time and place, there will be a summit of the G-8 world powers. The meetings are expected to draw heads of state, generals and countless others.
At a day-long meeting in New York City on Saturday, June 18, the United National Antiwar Committee’s national coordinating committee of 69 participants, representing, 47 organizations, unanimously passed a resolution to call for action at the upcoming NATO meeting.
UNAC is determined to mount a massive united outpouring in Chicago during the NATO gathering to put forth demands opposing endless wars and calling for billions spent on war and destruction be spent instead on people’s needs for jobs, health care, housing and education.
I know im headed there. quit sitting around in fucking tents and actually be a part of something. Occupy is cool, but it is also a breeding ground for homeguards and wastoids. Get some activism going maybe? Get to chicago. Do your own research on this too.

going and have a nice place to stay while i'm there. Actually am looking forward to it. If protesting the G8 will change anything i'll be surprised, but it should be fun nonetheless.

We just hopped from San Fran to Atlanta, now we are going to florida for a month, and then in march we are going to hop back to California, and then hopefully ride the high line towards chicago before we miss it.

yourr from ABQ im from farmington is there any kidz up there right know
Not a whole lot of anarchists in our movement, and those who are are having any direct action call out cockblocked by MoveOn and AFL, Fucking reformists. A lot of people here belong to the "closeted anarchist" category, but haven't quite embraced it vocally. We definitely need some though, especially when we start a new encampment. Things definitely fell apart when Treeline left. He'll be back in town by the 16th, but the poor bastard is trapped in Denver.

If anyone wants to do Occupy shit in NM, try Santa Fe on the 17th. Normally I wouldn't make suggestions to people on the internet, but I got an email asking people to "try to keep 'the anarchists' away", and now I just want to piss the sender off.

ALEC will be in DC on the 28th of November, so I'll be spending my birthday in the teargas-choked streets of DC, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I've actually been looking for a partner to start on the road with sometime in march so I can see a bit of the country before G8/NATO.

Sick and fucking tired of living with my parents.

If you find a dude from ABQ named Andy, tell him to stay out of the teargas because his medic doesn't want to travel to DC to pull his ass out.

    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.
