|Occupied 75 River St.|
The former bank at 75 River St. has been occupied and is being re-purposed into a community center and social space.
Tonight, we will gather as a community to discuss the future of our new social space and make plans for its future. There will be a potluck and discussions, followed by dancing. This space belongs to everyone who participates. Come tonight to make decisions about the future of 75 River.
Bring food, supplies to set up the space, and a desire to partake in the creation of the 75 River Community Space.
Questions to consider:
* In the current wave of austerity, what social services are no longer provided by the state? How could we provide them ourselves?
* What actions would we like to take in the immediate future? How can we use this space to organize those actions?
* How can the space remain open and inclusive?
Last night we took the Coast Commercial Bank (now owned by Wells Fargo, and three years vacant) at 75 River St. in Santa Cruz, and are establishing it as a community center. These are inspiring and exciting times!
We’ve thus far held several organizational assemblies, have set up a media and communications center, sleeping quarters, a medical station, a library, and a stocked kitchen.
All are welcome! Come join us and share your visions. We very much look forward to removing all barricades, and have begun to do so as we become more comfortable holding this space…
But we are under immediate threat of police eviction. Support and solidarity from the Occupy international movement has kept us strong. Please continue to post, share, retweet, and spread the word to support the 75River community space!
