It seems our landlord found a better deal and booted us out of our
warehouse in North Boulder. We're working on getting things
rolling again in Lafayette (east of Boulder). We will still have
many of the same things going on at the house plus a few new
things like the DIY Travelers' Inn (link coming coon). I'll post all
of the new happenings as they happen. Thanks to everyone who
has supported us this far!

WE ARE OPPOSED TO DOMINATION
We reject the institutions of control that often seem to have us by
the throats. From the current system of education to
consumerism. We reject the authoritarian nature of these
institutions in favor of new, creative methods of cooperation and
mutual aid that puts us back in direct control of our lives.

WE OPERATE ON THE PRINCIPLES OF MUTUAL AID
So many parts of our world are based on competition and violence.
Corporations, governments, stock markets all thrive on putting
profits above human needs and lives. We turn that system on its
head by creating alternatives to it. We believe that anything can be
done with cooperation while competition just tears us apart.

WE RESPECT DIFFERENT OPINIONS AND VIEWPOINTS
Though the core members of the Gorilla Love Brigade think and
organize along similar political lines our doors are always open to
people with different viewpoints, backgrounds and cultures.
Healthy debate and discussions on issues that affect our
community can benefit all of us.

WE DO NOT DISCRIMINATE BASED ON GENDER, RACE
OR SEXUAL PREFERENCE
Or any other ridiculous social barriers that aim to keep us fighting
amongst each other. We reject the notion that someone should be
treated as more or less of a person based on such superficial ideas
as skin color or sexuality. We realize that this system of white
patriarchy has been in place for many years and it will be a difficult
battle, but we must take steps to see that it is overcome. We
realize that privilege exists in every part of our lives and we are not
wholly representative of the struggle against oppression. We open
our doors and our hearts to anyone who feels oppressed or
downtrodden, together we can create a diverse and beautiful
world.

WE ARE COMMUNITY-MINDED
The space is for all. This is not a unilateral effort, we are
supported by the community and want to meet the community's
needs as much as possible. We are always open to suggestions,
questions, and criticism from folks who have an interest in the
space. Hopefully our efforts will help our radical/progressive
circles grow and affect the lives of thousands.

WE BELIEVE IN RESPECT
We organize and operate based on mutual respect for people. We
want to create a space where people aren't concerned with our
petty differences and can build relationships and start revolutions
in this environment.

WE ARE ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN
We reject the notion that one person or group can hold power over
another. We believe that governments, militaries, police, all
organizations that force their authority on other people are
inherently violent. We feel that individuals are their own authority.
We strive to be the change we wish to see and live in a way that
reaffirms our values. We are a decentralized collective that uses
consensus decision-making to make sure that everyone has an
equal say.

WE ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
The problems in this world cannot simply be voted away. We are
entrenched in war, greed, domination, capitalism, racism,
classism and the only way out is for us to take the power back into
our own hands and actively challenge the problems. Piece by
piece, person by person, heart by heart. This is what we're doing.
