Anti-Authoritarian Anti-Capitalist Gathering
North jersey is coming alive with ideas, energy, and action aimed at creating spaces where freedom, equality, truth, dignity, and a sense of community reign. The past 2 months have spawned at least 5 emerging anti-capitalist anti-authoritarian groups. Right now, if we come together to share ideas, resources and organizing techniques; we could walk away with more fortified groups, projects, and collectives, and possibly get some new ones off the ground.
The North Jersey Anti-Authoritarian Anti-Capitalist Gathering has come together to achieve these multiple goals. The individuals involved in organizing the gathering represent a variety of activist organizations. They include members of the following organizations: Anti-Racist Action of North Jersey, Bergen Action Network, Anarchist Black Cross of New Jersey, Bergen County Bike Collective, Critical Resistance, Ever Reviled Records, and One Peoples Project.
The Gathering will be held on Saturday March 26th 2005 from 9AM - 7PM. There will be a pre-gathering/meet and greet at Grounds in Jersey City on Friday night (March 25th). The Gathering will be held at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Essex County, which is located at 35/47 Cleveland Street in Orange, NJ.
The day will more or less be broken up into several blocks of time. One will be set aside for North Jersey groups to report back on their progress thus far, one for lunch, and one for speakers from various groups outside of North Jersey to present. A final block of time would be used to break out into groups so that unaffiliated activists can plug into existing groups, or start forming new groups. Space will be reserved for tables for local groups to display their literature.
There will be a sliding scale fee ($3-10) however, no one will be turned away. Food and Child Care will be provided (please call ahead if child care is needed)
