For a California Anarchist Gathering in 2004!
by Calanarcho (modanarcho [at]
Thursday Nov 27th, 2003 12:59 PM
Through the "California Anarchist/Anti-Authoritarian Yellow Pages", we are hoping to put together a Anarchist Conference/Gathering in 2004, representing all tendencies, and with spreakers, workshops, and other events worth traveling for!
For a California Anarchist Gathering in 2004!

This is a copy of the email that was created for a couple of purposes. It came together while creating a large list of all anarchist groups, collectives, and anti-authoritarian projects in this state. The emails that have been compiled are the result of that list, and with this list we hope that you can use to further your networking, and also to find new contacts for events, and projects. Beyond networking, we are hoping that through this email list, we can create a large anarchist/anti-authoritarian gathering sometime next year, (after the SF Anarchist Book Fair, possibly in summer), covering topics relating to our movement, and covering information worth traveling far and wide for.

Ideas Include: FTAA Report Back, APOC Conference Report, John Zerzan Speaking?, Cascadia Media Collective Workshop, Stop Huntington Animal Cruelty Tactics, Black Blocs, Next Step?, Earth First in Orange County, Class War Prisoners, Food Not Bombs Struggles, Re-Wilding ala Primitivist, Starting a Union via IWW, A West Coast NEFAC?, Building a Website, ect.

As well as...

We also hope to have a website up and running that will include message boards, and an Indymedia type of news posting system, and message boards. We hope to create a space for California Anarchists/Anti-Authoritarians to come together and share news about events, so we can make it easier for ourselves to try and organize.

About this listing...

Firstly this listing is comprised of lots of different kinds of groups. From anarchist collectives like DAAA, and Bay Area Anarchists, to anti-authoritarian groups like Food Not Bombs, Anti-Racist Action, and Critical Mass, and also publications and organizations like AK Press, No Compromise, and Killing King Abacus.

We will see where this takes us. Please email us back with your ideas about creating a Anarchist/Anti-Authoritarian gathering/conference in 2004, and creating some sort of online Infoshop to help organize and network.

Thank you !
