Letter from Denver, Colorado

by Craig Stehr (craigstehr [at] hushmail.com)
Report from a month in Denver with Unconventional Denver, Recreate 68, and Denver Food Not Bombs.
Hello everyone, After being banned at the Long Haul Infoshop for being too rational, sane, and aggressive for the Berkeley scene, and having been informed by the ineffective hippie milieu that I am crazy for demanding that East Bay Food Not Bombs return a lousy $55 to me which I used to pay one of their bills at the collective house I was living in (which banned me for being too aggressive in the face of the obviously failing Save the Oaks campaign), I decided that maybe I ought to leave the Berkeley milieu for awhile. So, I got on the grey dog and went to Denver. I have taken a week long series of trainings at a permaculture community...medic training, direct action, and legal trainings. Then, Recreate 68 got me housing in Denver. I have since been attending Unconventional Denver meetings/am part of one of the working groups...am attending Recreate 68 meetings/am part of the media group...and I cook & serve food twice weekly with Denver Food Not Bombs. We've successfully taken the City of Denver and the Secret Service to court...demanding better access to the convention site and delegates. We've got a whole series of protest marches, speakers, and bands lined up for the August 24-28 DNC week. There are countless opportunities for direct action during the Festival of Democracy--Days of Resistance alternative to the DNC electoral spectacle. And, we've got a caravan organized leaving from Denver going to Minneapolis August 29th...email dtown2twins [at] gmail.com. Lastly, and I know that this violates the Indybay policy: I need money to maintain myself here! Send me some at: Craig Stehr, c/o Phil Ross at 1256 Corona St, #2, Denver, CO 80218-2027. Lastly, I may well return to San Francisco after the RNC protests which are from September 1-4 in Minneapolis. Feel free to contact me and offer me free housing now. Hey, I don't want to do all that I am presently doing to the ultimate good, and then return to the bay area and have to suffer incredibly stupid, aggravating, homeless circumstances. Just bein' real, Craig Stehr in Denver, Colorado

Hey Craig, If you like itin Denver or St. Paul so much, why don't you stay there. I promise you the Bay Area won't miss you. Is it because you're demanding free housing from them, like you are from peopel here,and they only put you up til after the convention.
Folks, the great things tare happening in Denver have nothing to do with this low-life Stehr. Nada. Zilch.

Hey east bay brain dead...SHUT UP!
by Captain Ahab
it's funny but whenever these phony berkeley types start dissing Stehr they all immediately turn into Mr./Ms. All American Capitalist ala Ward Cleaver or someone similar...e.g. "how dare you bum off etc.etc." who wants to cast the first stone?
