Discussion / brainstorm of ideas for Leap Day Action Night 2016 in the Bay Area (February 29, 2016).Added to the calendar on Thursday Nov 12th, 2015 9:38 PM
Leap Day — February 29, 2016 — is an extra day that gives us a chance to look at how we spend most of our days and wonder if we can’t do a little better? If the answer is “yes”, Leap Day can be an arbitrary but overdue moment to create decentralized, militant and yet creative and hilarious uprisings against the various oppressive systems that vex us.
Systems of inequality, racism, police violence and environmental destruction are vulnerable, but they won’t collapse on their own. They need our help. Everyone is standing around waiting for something to happen or just focused on the latest outrage. We need to take the initiative and throw the first punch every once in a while.
The call for decentralized revolt on Leap Day 2016 is open-ended in terms of tactics, goals and strategy. Leap day can be a laboratory to articulate our vision for the future in dynamic, emotionally resonant, new ways. Leap Day Action night aims to break down the artificial separation between “activism” and living our lives full of enjoyment and freedom.
