Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence from May 7th to 10th
A Four-Day Anarchist Invasion of Santa Cruz
Between the forest and the ocean, among the students and the yuppies, Anarchists in Santa Cruz have fostered a close-knit community dedicated to the destruction of this world and the creation of another. Santa Cruz is a hub of anarchist culture and resistance, with a long history of radical struggle and active anarchist projects spanning decades. From May 7th to 10th, the Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence was a four-day event for building community and resistance and sharing radical ideas. The convergence was focused around the SubRosa Infoshop, but event happened at various locations in the Santa Cruz area.

Santa Cruz hosted its first ever Anarchist Bookfair, a two-day exposition of books, zines, pamphlets, art, film/video, and other cultural and political productions of the anarchist movement, on May 9th and 10th at SubRosa Infoshop. A Free Skool Conference happened in conjunction with the Santa Cruz Anarchist Convergence, with activities including a community picnic, panel and group discussions, and a campfire. Additionally, there was a kick-off show, a squaredance, bike rides, a punk show and more.
