SUPPORT THE POINTE-SAINT-CHARLES AUTONOMOUS SOCIAL CENTRE:
The reach and "establishment" of anarchism continues to grow across the world. as the movement grows and matures it lays down roots for the long term of practical organization. Nowhere is this more true than in Montreal, long a strong centre of anarchism in Canada. Here is a press release about the planned opening of yet another anarchist centre in that metropolis...
[A message from Marco and Ianis ...]
As you probably know, local activists are organizing to open an "*Autonomous Social Center*" (Centre Social autogéré, CSA: http://csa.revolte.biz) on the former lands of CN in Pointe-Saint-Charles.
We are going to begin the project with a neighborhood party on June 7-8(date to be confirmed). We would like autonomous projects that will give life to the Autonomous Social Center to be up-and-running by that date: food projects; rooftop gardens, alternative media, bar and show space, bike workshops, free community bikes, and popular education.
To follow-up, we will sustain the pre-Social Center thanks to the autonomous projects that will operate in community spaces until the opening of the Autonomous Social Centre in the spring of 2009.
We would like to get in touch with anarchist and anti-authoritarian groups,in order to know if you can support our project in the following ways:
- sharing of your skills and knowledge;
- material resources (photocopier, server, tools, etc).
- human resources
- promoting the Social Center on your lists.
Getting involved begins now, for the neighborhood party of June 7-8, for the autonomous projects, and for the opening of the Social Center in the spring of 2009.
If you want to meet us in order to get more information or to discuss the project, get in touch!
