A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

RAIN DATE: The following Saturday, same time, same location.
LOCATION ... same place a last year. Because so many people enjoyed the
bucolic location next to the lake, we thought it would be a good location to
return to (but we'll give better directions this time!).
DIRECTIONS ... by Subway: take the F train into Brooklyn, to 15th Street /
Prospect Park stop, which is at the corner of the park. Walk into the park,
make a right, following the bike / jogging road, walk around the lake, until
you see the "Peristyle", which is a colonnade building (looks like the Greek
Parthenon, with nothing on the inside. They have weddings there) and look
left, near the water, for the festivities! Alternative train ... take the Q
four stops into Brooklyn to Prospect Park stop, enter the park. Make left,
follow the bike / jogging road with the lake on your right. Peristyle will
be on your left, gathering on your right. By Car ... there is adequate
parking near where we are gathering. Park on Parkside Avenue, between the
baseball fields ("Parade Ground") and the park. You'll see the peristyle
just inside the park. From Grand Army Plaza ... the lake and gathering
location is on the opposite side of the park from Grand Army Plaza, so if
you enter here, just follow the bike jogging road around the park, in either
direction, and look for the peristyle. From Mars ... a special welcome to
all Martians attending the gathering! Please land and park all space ships
on the great lawn. And please fly out all interstellar debris.


If you'd like to help us organize it, let us know.

What to Bring: Frisbees, soccer balls, veggie hotdogs, kites, lawn chairs,
sunglasses, tanning oils, watermelon, pets, blankets, children, and lots and
lots of food!

Strategy / Discussion Groups:

Strategy / discussion sessions are planned throughout the day, so that those
wishing so can pick and choose which sessions they would like to attend (or
propose). We'll have a dry erase board at the main gathering with times and
locations nearby in the park for the discussions. To propose a strategy
meeting, or volunteer to facilitate, please contact the projects collective.
We'll post all discussion group proposals on the website. No proposals will
be denied (how could we?!) Alternatively you can just show up to the picnic
and do ya own thing!

Possible sessions:

1. FTAA Miami mobilization...getting organized. Also, RNC, WTO, etc.
2. Anarchists and the war. What up? Need more discussion?
3. NYC Anarchist Union? Do we need a local anarchist union, federation, or
organization? What about that tribes thang?
4. MORE!

NOTE: the above sessions and content / topics of the Strategy / Discussions
are entirely up to those that attend. We make no presumption to know what
people want to talk about. Propose your own!
