The bl(A)ck tea society wishes a warm welcome to all dnc consulta
guests. What follows is the final consulta schedule with all the times
and locations of events. At the bottom is also some info on housing,
getting around town, and the final scoop on food. If you still have any
questions or need our support, please let us know by dropping us a line
at nodnc04@hush.com. And if you have housing needs that you have
not yet told us about, please email us and let us know!

<<----------THE SCHEDULE---------->>

FRIDAY, 2/13, 6-10pm
at the Community Church of Boston
565 Boylston Street, Boston

-by public transportation: take the T to Copley Square (green line)

6-10pm - check-in, housing assignments, fun

If you are planning to arrive on Friday night later than 10pm and need
housing, you MUST let us know in advance so we can find you a place
to stay and help you get there on your own.

If you arrive later than 10pm and have not told us in advance, DO NOT
go to the Community Church (and please don't ring the doorbell there.
We won't be there after 10pm, and if you buzz you'll wake up the
people upstairs, and we don't want to get complaints - we'd like to
keep good relations with the nice folks at CC so we can use the space
again in the future).

SATURDAY, 2/14, 9am-6pm
at the Community Church of Boston 565 Boylston Street, Boston

here - http://whereis.mit.edu/map-jpg.

9-10am - check-in, breakfast
10am-5/6pm - workshops, with an hour lunch break

**Schedule is dependent on number of people present on Sunday.
Because of the large number of people registered, we're going to have
to break people up into smaller groups for the workshops and rotate
folks through the different workshops. The following groups will hold
workshops during each rotation (more detailed descriptions for each
will come in another email):

NLG (National Lawyer's Guild)
- legal workshop

BALM (Boston Area Liberation Medics)
- staying healthy and safe on the streets

ABC (Boston Anarchist Black Cross)
- street tactics/practical know your rights

IMC (Boston Indy Media)
- be the media!

MONDAY, 2/16, 9am-12pm
at the Community Church of Boston
565 Boylston Street, Boston

-by public transportation: take the T to Copley Square (green line)

9am-12pm - breakfast, open sessions


The best way to get around town is on public transportation. All
consulta events are accessible via T (subway) and bus lines. For T
maps and schedules, go to www.mbta.com. Cost: $1.25 for the
subway, 90 cents for the bus (you'll need exact change for the bus).
PLEASE NOTE: Boston's subway system shuts down after midnight -
last trains generally leave stations between 12:20 and 12:40. On
Friday and Saturday nights, the city offers Night Owl service, which
consists of buses that follow subway and bus routes. The fare is
higher, and the service has historically been pretty bad, so we'd
suggest you try to stick to regular service.

If you bring a car into the city, be prepared to feed a parking meter
(2-hour meters, 25 cents per 15 minutes, some meters in effect until
8pm, some until 6pm).

If you take a taxi, be prepared to pay $1.75 for the first 1/8th mile or
less and $0.30 for each additional 1/8th of a mile. Also be prepared to
pay tolls if you're coming from/going to the airport/East Boston.


We'll set folks up with housing assighments at check-in on Friday
night and during the day on Saturday. Please try to bring your own
sleeping bag/blankets/pillows/etc. Some hosts will have some of these
things to share, but some may not, and it's damn cold this time of year
in Boston.


It looks like we'll have FNB meals for breakfast and lunch, and you'll
be on your own for dinner each night you're in town.


We can't stress this enough. There's a lot of folks coming to town, and
we're not willing to create a ton of waste using disposable dishes and
utensils. At the same time, our venues don't have full kitchens
equipped with everything we'd need to feed everyone. So, if you want
to eat, please bring something to eat out of/eat with.


Again, if you need to reach us, email
nodnc04@hush.com. See everyone soon!
