(en) US, LA-Anarchists, Si Se Puede Collective Meeting 11/05

Date Tue, 01 Nov 2005 11:00:31 +0200

The Si Se Puede Collective is meeting this Saturday November 5th at 1pm
at the YJC Center 253 W. Martin Luther King Blvd. (cross street is Broadway
off the 110 FWY -- buses 40, 42, 45, 740, 745, 200 go there) The Si Se
Puede Collective is a labor collective of the Los Angeles Chapter of the
Southern California Anarchist Federation (scafla.communityfeast.org).
We're involved in different projects to help in the process of worker self
organization. Our long term goal is to build direct democracy in the work place
and worker self-management without the need of bosses and top-down organization.
We hope in the near future to build a worker owned and run center --
where workers can organize in councils, look for work, support each
other, build solidarity, build programs, and connect to the community.

We work and support sectors of workers who are ignored by organized labor:
-day laborers
-domestic workers
-the unemployed
-independent workers

As of right now, we're building a relationship, supporting, and helping
in the organizing of port-truckers in Long Beach, Taxi Drivers in Los
Angeles, Domestic workers (who are majority women), and Day laborers.

We're working on an event in January to bring all those different
workers together to start building mutual solidarity. The event will be
in organized on the basis of popular education, where the workers
themselves would organize the event, break up into groups and share
their experiences, learn from each other, and build solidarity. There
would be food and music at the event (so it won't be necessarily a
meeting). The port truckers who are looking to organize, will use the
event as a spring board in that process.

The Si Se Puede Collective is made up of diverse people who all hold a
strong belief in direct-democracy: students, activists,
revolutionaries, all members of the community, Community Organizers, and
labor organizers.
