You are cordially invited to attend ongoing May Day Action Spokescouncils!
This body aspires to inspire autonomous actions and collectively create a space where different groups can support each other through mutual aid and solidarity. We will not be meeting to make decisions or critique others’ tactics but to coordinate the various actions that our organizations, working groups, affinity groups, et cetera are planning. Please attend with your fellow organizers, or send a delegate! Action Spokes leading up to May Day will be on the following dates, located at 50 E 7th Street (Middle Collegiate Church):
Sunday March 18, 2012 (7 PM)
Sunday April 1, 2012 (7 PM)
Sunday April 8, 2012 (7 PM)
Sunday April 15, 2012 (7 PM)
Sunday April 22, 2012 (7 PM)
Sunday April 29, 2012 (7 PM)
In these meetings we abide by the following community agreements:
- Our solidarity will be based on respect for a diversity of tactics and the plans of other groups
- We will create adequate space and/or time between separate actions to maximize personal choice, safety, and autonomy
- Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any public or media denunciations of fellow activists or events
- We agree not to assist law enforcement actions against activists and others
