(en) US, Ya'll are invited to a Midwest and Great Lakes anarchist consulta in Milwaukee, this Halloween weekend (October 31st - November 2nd).

Calling All Anarchists Throughout the Great Lakes and the Midwest ---- In early
November of 2007, anarchists from across the Midwest gathered in Milwaukee to
network and to plan some havoc for the Republican National Convention. Almost a
year later, we in Milwaukee are excited to invite our friends of dubious
intension back to our city. The purpose being to strategize and network for
increased conflict with capitalism and the state in the coming months, and of
course to cause some old-fashioned, ghoulish mischief on Halloween. Oh, and of
course good food and warm places to stay. ---- Why Now? ---- The past year saw a
tremendous amount of anarchist organizing in the Midwest, including the campaign
against I-69, the mobilization against the RNC, and the Radical Queer
Convergence in Chicago, to cite a few examples.

These campaigns and events provided tremendous excitement and motivation to
anarchists in the Midwest, and have built the infrastructure and relationships
necessary to escalate resistance and conflict throughout the region.

After the RNC, we cannot let momentum die. We believe it is vital that we get
together to share our experiences from this year, to decompress and support each
other, to distill lessons from our successes and failures in Indiana and St.
Paul, and of course to articulate a strategic direction for the coming months
and beyond.

Upping the Ante

Yeah, the RNC was insane. We showed that in the face of anything the State could
throw at us, we could work together and pull off something amazing. Plans
changed, houses were raided, friends went to jail - and still we made something
beautiful happen in the streets. We should be proud, and should celebrate, we
should take time to recover and support one another.

But that doesn't mean we should stop. Let's treat the RNC as a beginning- as a
springboard into greater and deeper resistance, which becomes a generalized and
constant conflict. Rather than going dormant for a few years until the next big
summit, it’s time to capitalize on our momentum and go on the offensive. We've
shown that we can work together and get rowdy in the midst of the National
Guard, a militarized police force and tens of millions of dollars of security.
Imagine what we can do when we choose the battles and define the terms.

All the Monsters Come Out at Night

On Friday the 31st, let us reclaim Halloween for all things monstrous and
mischievous, for as a wise man once said, “revolution is the unleashing of all
evil passions.” We shall manifest ourselves as something powerful, as a raging
beast. Let us give capitalism the creeps.
