Fri Dec 18 2009Last Night Celebrates Five Years of Do-It-Yourself Community Organizing
Fri Dec 18 2009With Spiraling Civic Budgets, Decentralized Celebration More Relevant Than Ever
Five years after police were exposed infiltrating the organizing group, the Last Night DIY celebration still refuses permission to bring a homespun tradition to Santa Cruz streets. In it's fifth year, the do-it-yourself, grassroots celebration with a family-friendly parade, street party and performers is set for a evening of adventure and entertainment.
Organizers say that it's, "More than an evening's entertainment, this is a parade with a purpose. The message is simple: We can do it ourselves. From its beginnings in 2004, the parade is not about merely celebrating, but celebrating what we as a community can do outside of governments, corporations, and institutions. It is a celebration of both our autonomy and the support we bring to each other."
This year on New Year's Eve, the celebration will meet at 5pm near the Saturn Cafe parking lot on Pacific Ave and Spruce Street.
