via STRIKE EVERYWHERE!:
We would like to invite all NYC anarchists, radicals, autonomists, Occupiers, POC, queers, anti-capitalists, undocumented people, feminists and individuals who are interested in organizing events to join us at Prospect Park on July 22 for an Open Assembly and BBQ.
The Open Assembly is a forum for reporting back about recent projects, announcing current and future projects, and inviting others to collaborate on those projects via breakout groups at the end of the meeting. Our goal is to bring together individuals and groups to meet, discuss, and coordinate projects.
Large assemblies have difficulties acting as decision making bodies, but enable large numbers to come together and cooperate. These decision making challenges have contributed in fragmenting of the large assemblies. By removing the decision making process and bringing together working groups the assembly can continue to serve as a space for people to plug into projects and coordinate on projects.
If all goes well, this kind of gathering can repeat at some regular interval and help build bridges and facilitate the growth of the radical community in NYC.
If you are interested in helping setup/cleanup/etc or have questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
