(en) US, NYC, 7/22 SAT: big NY Anarchist meeting Fourth General Assembly of (NYMAA)

Date Fri, 14 Jul 2006 19:48:22 +0300

New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists Saturday, July 22nd, 1:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M.
221 West 107th St. betw. Amsterdam & B`way
You know it's really summer when school is out, the World Cup is over,
the bulls of Pamploma have run (they scored big this year), and
anarchists can celebrate the Fourth of July -- the Fourth General
Assembly of NYMAA -- The New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists -- that
is! There may not be any fireworks, but hopefully our agenda and
hot new format will get you fired up. What better way to beat the
heat and show off your svelte summer physique than spending an afternoon
with a crew of really cool people!

If you've been to past GA's, this one will be quite different. The first
hour or so will be reserved for an informal mutual aid/idea-share coupled
with breakouts that will allow people to drum up interest for non-NYMMA
projects, generate proposals for the "formal" GA portion,
participate in a mini-workshop on consensus process, chat with the point
people for the various NYMAA grouplets, or just make out (what else is
summer for?).

After a break, we'll be going into the actual GA portion of the
afternoon, during which we’ll get the low-down on all the exciting work
that our various borough locals and working groups (including radical
health, anti-war, labor, and global outreach) have been and will be
doing, as well as the presentation of new proposals (which include the
organizing of a NYC anarchist bookfair and the creation of a Local Action
Network) and announcements of relevance to the anarchist community.

As always, food and drink, as well as childcare (please RSVP if you're
bringing children!), will be provided.
When: Saturday, July 22nd, 1:00 P.M. - 5:00 P.M.
Where: Church of the Ascension, 221 West 107th Street between
Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway in Manhattan. In the basement.
How: Take the 1 train to 110th Street/Cathedral Parkway, walk South and
East. Or, B or C trains to 110th Street/Cathedral Parkway, walk South and

Who: The New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists (NYMAA) is a broad
organization of anarchists and anti-authoritarians who live in the New
York metropolitan area.

Why: NYMAA is a social revolutionary organization, thus our ultimate aim
is to eradicate all forms of authoritarianism, hierarchy, and domination
and help build a genuinely liberatory, self-managed, directly democratic
society. To that end our immediate aim is to bring anarchists together on
a common plane of struggle for the purpose of growing and expanding the
movement and spreading our ideas.

NYMAA is now in it's fifth month of existence, over 100 members strong,
and we are now a regular presence on the streets of New York,
demonstrating in support of workers and immigrant rights, in solidarity
with other movements struggling against oppression, and defending free
speech and a free press. We are also developing mutual aid
services that will be available to the greater community. Organized
anarchism is needed now more than ever, so come and see what we're all

In order for the ideas of horizontalism and revolution to firmly take
root among a broad cross-section of people, anarchists need to band
together for the purpose of initiating and nurturing a wide range of
projects. NYMAA's aim is to build momentum and contribute to a genuine
movement of resistance and liberation that can ultimately uproot the
brutality of authoritarianism, capitalism, and oppression.

NYMAA is in the process of forming, building, and growing local
"chapters" and working groups, thereby gradually planting the
seeds of capitalist destruction.
