(en) US, New Orleans, Public Housing Teach-In/Strategy Meeting for N.O. Anarchists

Date Thu, 06 Dec 2007 11:20:21 +0200



AnnouncementsPublic housing issues have been worked on by wingnuts and other
unsavory idiots until recently, keeping/driving many radicals in New Orleans
away. And recently, activists put out a "call to action" for people from around
the country to come to New Orleans and do civil disobedience to stop the
Projects from being demolished. THERE IS 50-200 PEOPLE COMING! Luckily, some of
the less demoralized and exhausted among us local, not-crazy radicals have taken
the lead in the organizing, and have gotten in touch with actual residents of
public housing, are getting cool local people involved, and put together a
website, which will serve as a place for information in the coming days.

Sunday, December 9th @Iron Rail Bookstore (511 Marigny St., New Orleans, LA)
3pm

OK people. let's get fucking serious.
-rents have doubled
-there is a critical shortage of rental units in our city, leading to high rents
and lots of homeless people (see:
http://www.infoshop.org/inews/article.php?story=20071202192706717)
-homeless people are camping in front of city hall and under the claiborne overpass
-developers are getting filthy fucking rich
-The pigs said they are going to evict Tent City on Tuesday, the 11th, because
BLACKWATER bought the building next to the park and is going to fence the entire
block off for construction of a new building.

...And the city is about to tear down hundreds of livable, affordable rental
homes, the 4 largest public and housing complexes in the city, in like 2 weeks!
it's time to stand up and fight back!

This is the deal:
Sunday, 3pm, Iron Rail Books (511 Marigny St.)
There will be a teach-in/organizing/strategy session
for New Orleans anarchists and radicals at the Iron
Rail about public housing, what's been going on with
it, and what is happening THIS WEEK.

Here's a bit of background:
Public housing issues have been worked on by wingnuts and other unsavory idiots
until recently, keeping/driving many radicals in new orleans away. And recently,
activists put out a "call to action" for people from around the country to come
to New Orleans and do civil disobedience to stop the Projects from being
demolished. THERE IS 50-200 PEOPLE COMING!

Luckily, some of the less demoralized and exhausted among us local, not-crazy
radicals have taken the lead in the organizing, and have gotten in touch with
actual residents of public housing, are getting cool local people involved, and
put together a website, which will serve as a place for information in the
coming days. There is a "pledge of resistance" on it, and other stuff.
www.defendneworleanspublichousing.org

And here's a quick run down of what's going to be going down:
-Saturday at Loyola U. at 11am there is a meeting for all parties
involved/interested in fighting to stop the demolition of public housing (and an
expansive struggle from there).
-Sunday at Noon a couple of people will be going to Duncan Plaza (tent city) to
talk to people about squatting movements around the world and possible courses
of action. If anyone knows of a good pamphlet online about that, please put the
link as a comment, otherwise we'll make one.
-Sunday at 3pm there is the meeting at the Iron Rail
-Sunday night: stickers, wheatpasting, etc...
-Monday: 9am press conference at City Hall
-Monday: 2-11pm Nowe Miasto (223 Jane Place) will be
serving as a check-in/convergence center for people
coming in to town or anyone who wants to get involved
-Tuesday there will be a Direct Action training at
Nowe Miasto for civil disobedience, legal info,
background on the struggle, etc...
-Wednesday there will be a spokescouncil/large group
meeting at Nowe Miasto to finalize action plans and
strategy
-Thursday the 13th-Sunday 16th there will be 3 days of
actions. each day will see an escalation of pressure
and tactics.

-Monday the 10th-Sunday the 16th media activists will
be set up at the iron rail who will be covering the
protests, so if you want to get involved in that look
for them there.

Flyers with info about the protests, direct action
manuals, posters, and more will be available online at
the website and also at the Iron Rail by this Sunday.

Enough is enough. Shit has to change. Let's do it!
