Event Type Critical Mass
Organizer/AuthorDefendTheBulb
We are calling for a mass and long term reoccupation of the Albany Bulb starting TOMORROW! Wednesday May 14 @ 5 PM.

Yesterday the police and city illegally destroyed a very nice shack that an older man was living in so in response and preparation for the reoccupation, 9 blockades were built at major chokepoints of the Bulb to keep the cops from evicting the last remaining residents. Each barricade was made of large rocks/slabs of concrete and large branches that were cut down by the city stacked up to be about 5 feet tall. Unfortunately we did not have enough people to defend the barricades and they were demolished this after noon. We need your help!


For the reoccupation we need tents, blankets, tools, building supplies, food, water, walkie talkies, and any other things that would be useful for a long term land reclaimation.

Please visit and camp out as often as possible or support us in anyway you can. We need people to make new art, have meetings, build new shacks, do copwatch, or have bonfires and concerts.

Please spread this call for reoccupation to as many people as possible. We need people to hold as much space for as long as possible!

Keep the Bulb Wild and Autonomous!
