a.k.a. Capitalist Clearance sale! Everything Must Go!

a.k.a. A Green Future & Peaceful Tomorrow's Ride!

The insatiable beast known as Industrial Capitalism is beginning to show signs of ill health - Food riots, inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, a lying trivial corporatized media, unemployment, undignified crappy jobs for the employed, endless wars, a subprime loan crisis, and the over publicized meltdown of Britney Spears.

Could it be a sign of a terminal illness? Or is this an opportunity for those outside of the dominant paradigm to articulate our desires for the future?

Join your fellow bike radicals as we ride through the streets of Santa Cruz, touring the damage done to local businesses as the American economy starts to skid and crash. We'll pay particular attention to the auto-dependent businesses that have failed in the wake of a 5 year old war in Iraq and record oil-company profits. Along fenced off "No Trespassing" signs, we'll erect our own artwork and signs foretelling a future not tethered to the needs of cars, compulsive consumerism, and property rights. A future of community gardens, plazas, and wild unclaimed spaces!

Things to bring: a bike, seeds, yourself, pretty things to decorate fences with, a sense of humor.

(At the end of the ride, we'll join the masses for some free subversive entertainment in downtown SC w/ the Guerilla Drive In's annual "subversive short film fest" http://guerilladrivein.org/wiki/guerilladrivein/schedule)
