(en) Aotearoa/New Zealand, Wanganui, Anarchist Tea Party

Date Fri, 25 Nov 2005 18:16:42 +0200

The Anarchist Tea Party, a gathering of anarchists from around the
country, will be happening on the 16 – 18th of December near Wanganui.
We are gathering to re-energise, communicate, build bridges, de-stress,
remember and make history. There’ll be six ‘core’ workshops:
Facilitation, Collectives, Organising an Anarchist Society, Feminism,
Tino Rangatiratanga, and Where we are Going. Other
workshops will be held according to the laws of supply
and demand. Please let us know if you want to hold a
workshop or lead a discussion, or if there’s a subject
you’d really like us to try and find someone to cover.

The tea party will be a camping experience so please come
prepared with a tent and sleeping bag. You can make life
as comfortable as you wish! Clothing? Well it may be
really hot or it may rain all weekend. Best to bring a
torch and some earplugs if you’re a light sleeper. There
is a shower if needed and also a fire bath. All cooking
and eating gear is sorted for you. Fresh spring water
will be available for sensitive stomachs. Please advise
us early if you have weird dietary requirements. We’ll
cater for vegans and gluten free anarchists. But if it
all goes to the pack, no worries, we have plenty of space
in the shed and spare bedding etc. Children are welcome,
please let us know of any childcare requirements. Cost is
$30 for the weekend.

We’ll meet you in town at the Red Eye Cafe in Guyton
Street and take you to the site. Contact us at:
the_anarchist_tea_party@graffiti.net to let us know when
you are arriving and we’ll meet you, or just turn up at
the following times: Thursday 15th – 5pm and 9pm; Friday
16th – 10am, 1pm, 9pm.


Other possible workshops:

Discussion on violence and non-violence
Structural analysis theory
Current situation in New Orleans
Rongoa and wild food
Communal living worldwide
Self defence
Non-violent direct actions
Stategies for emplacing anarchism
Using the capitalist media
Using film media
Vehicle mechanics
Climate change activities
Scotland’s anti-G8 eco-village


• Don’t come just to party;
• Respect the need for others (including the neighbours)
to sleep. There’ll be an expectation that the noisy
quieten down after a particular time;
• Be considerate of our environment;
• Think safe – especially near the river;
• Light no fires;
• Always wash your hands and avoid the cooking area if unwell;
• Contribute to the gathering in some way – volunteers
will be called for to carry out the necessary tasks;
• Sexist or violent behaviour isn’t acceptable in this space.


Anarchism? Uhhh… what??

An anarchist society is a society based on a network of
communities formed by voluntary agreements based on
cooperation and respect for the freedom of others. That
might not sound like ‘anarchy’ as the word is often used
- meaning disorder and chaos. Obviously, we don’t want
chaos or violence. We don’t think people are perfect, we
do think they’re basically decent and can work together
to run their own society and we certainly don’t see that
putting some people in power to keep other people in line
makes any sense, as those in power are the ones who do
the most damage.
