There is a lot of activism to be done in Richmond. It makes me feel in some ways obligated/ responsible to do as much as physically possible. It is especially hard because there are few other organizers in the city right now. There are definitely a lot of folks with good hearts and enthusiasm, but not with activism as a priority. We need more bottomliners. And I know part of that is needing to empower more people to initiate events. I’m working on that. I’m writing on article with tips on organizing to go in Cuddle Puddles and Hot Pants number 4.
Vegan Straightedge Anarchists are where it is at! I love tight pants, crusty, overalls, hotpants, greasy hair, acoustic guitar, zine writing, squat living, train hopping, hitch hiking, vegan, dumpster diving, anarchist, sober, polyamorous people. Please, lets be friends. Lets live a life full of whimsy. I don’t have much whimsy in my life right now, definitely partly my fault, but I would love some partners in crime (metaphorically speaking, neither myself nor anyone I know would break the law).
If you are in the Richmond area and wanna get involved in a project, holler. I can help people in terms of figuring out how to organize and tap into existing networks. And I can still use help myself doing that too.
Richmond = Critical Mass, Really Really Free Market, Anti-Bank of America Demo, Anti- Circus Demo, Animal Defense League, Anti- Dominion Demo, Anarchist Black Cross and movie showings, Food Not Bombs, LAbor Pool Free Food Program, Clinic Defense, Reproductive Freedom Project ETC. If you can dream it you can do it. Or something : )
I can’t wait for it to be warm outside. I can’t wait to turn the truck I just got into a veggie oil truck. I can’t wait to have friends visit. I can’t wait to dumpster dive and climb shit and read good books. But seriously, give me some anarchists please.
