(en) US, Reminder: IWW Rally At Shattuck Cinemas, IWW Party At Humanist Hall tomorrow]

Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 09:18:40 +0300

This year, the General Assembly of the Industrial Workers of the World
will be hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area General Membership Branch
at the Humanist Hall in Oakland, California, at 390 27th Street. On Friday
Sept. 1st, the day before the Assembly is called to order, the IWW will be
recieving Fellow Workers from throughout the Union at its headquarters in
the Grassroots House in Berkeley at 2022 Blake St., just west of Shattuck.
At 6:30 pm on Friday the IWW is conducting a rally and march, in
Solidarity with IWW-Shattuck Cinema Workers, starting from the theater
(located near the Berkeley Downtown BART station) and proceeding at a
mischieviously Wobbly trajectory. Songs will be sung, the truth shall be
spoken, and the power of Working Class Solidarity will once again rise
from the rank and file of the world's toughest and most directly
democratic radical labor union and its allies.

Following this splendid counter-spectacle in the midst of downtown
Berkeley's bustling consumer hive, Wobblies and friends will return to
Grassroots House at roughly 8:00 for a delicious vegan BBQ. After more
musical entertainment and general merriment, the Branch will screen
Fellow Worker Diane Krauthamer's very excellent documentary on the New
York City I.W.W.'s Starbucks campaign. At Nine p.m. F.W. Gifford Hartman
will deliver a most revelatory and inspiring talk and slideshow about
the 1946 Oakland General Strike. A hint of things to come, perhaps....

The following day, after an 8:00 A.M. Breakfast and Registration
session, at the Humanist Hall, the Assembly will be called to order,
adjourning at 4:45. Workshops, Caucuses and Ad-Hoc Committeee meetings
will then convene, until 8:00 p.m., at which time a very stimulating,
passionate and diverse evening of musical and theatrical entertainments
will grace the stage, featuring the Committee for Industrial
Laughification, Mark Gunnery of Riot Folk, the radical performance art
of Napolion e Baldassar, Entartete Kunst's Anarchist hip-hop, the Wills
Wilde, and a wicked dance set to round out the night, brought to you by
the inimitable DJ Malatesta. Our proud sisters and brothers of the Bay
Area's Working Class are warmly invited to attend this singularly Wobbly
open-house evening of hospitality and revelry.

We are eagerly anticipating the company and participation of all Fellow
Workers who can attend.

For the One Big Union of All the Workers;
For the Cooperative Commonwealth;
For the Power of Workers Councils;
For the Revolution of Everyday Life;
and For the New Society Within the Shell of the Old:
We Salute and Greet You.
