Over the new year’s holiday delegates from eight groups in the Midwest met to
discuss how to build a regional network to coordinate projects and actions.
The first part of our meeting focused on the recent protests against the
FTAA in Miami. We looked at what our goals had been, what went well and
what we can do to make the next mass actions better.
The second part of our meeting involved the formation of a
radical, antiauthoritarian, anti-capitalist, revolutionary network.
We know there are a ton of radical groups in the Midwest, but
we don’t seem to have an effective way of working
together. Some of the goals we discussed are:

* Forming a network. This is being done through the Midwest
Unrest web site (www.MidwestUnrest.net/local.html) and
through a weblog discussion.

* Holding regional meetings. The next meeting is tentatively
scheduled for February 6-8 in Lansing, Michigan.

* Working on joint projects. Several ideas were discussed,
including a zine that gives a general introduction to radical
activism and anarchism. We want to see if we can work
effectively together even though we are miles apart.

* Supporting regional actions. We want to be able to mobilize
our respective cities when an important regional action or event
is taking place. One of the events discussed is the Regional
Anti-War March taking place in Chicago on March 20. We hope
to have a strong radical, anti-capitalist contingent in or adjacent
to the march.

For more information or to add your group to the network,
contact midwest_unrest@riseup.net. Information about regional
gatherings, actions and projects will be added to the Midwest
Unrest web site as soon as the specifics are worked out.

Soon, we hope to have a better web site with a message board
and some kind of open-posting system to facilitate regional
discussion and coordination.
