Hi Direct Action, Can you post info (address, contact) about the eviction blockade you're coordinating with Vita Urbana on Monday at noon in Malden? Thanks! Anna

Found it on the Outreach website:

We are seeking 100 supporters to join eviction blockade with City LIfe / Vida Urbana this Monday. On Monday at noon, there will be an eviction blockade and rally at a home that is being foreclosed on in Malden. If you are interested in participating in this action, please coordinate with Katie ( or check in with Nicole at the direct action tent to see how you can help.

oppositional strategies used against leaderless revolutions

an important read for all of us, but especially for Direct Action:

Move Your Money Day, 11/5---support & provocative flyering?

Is there anything planned? I sent a flyer to the email address on the flyer page of the ob website. Do you have access to photocopying? I'd love to do some special handmade "invitations" with Arts & Culture. It would help to have an event planned to flyer.

I scouted out two or three events; if the weather is nice, we could just go to Post Office Park at lunch time.

make it easier to spot ACTIONs as opposed to events

I'd like to be able to look at the calendar and see actions (not just DA, flyering etc.) as opposed to workshops, etc. Color coding? Do you all send out alerts to the whole email list when there's a big action, like on Monday?

Jobs Not Cuts - oppose super-committee cuts

Hi all, I'm posting this proposal here and also in SPP.

The congressional super committee looks sure to make massive cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, public education and all public services.  One of the super committee members is John Kerry who's office and home are both downtown.  We should join with the Jobs Not Cuts Campaign and build actions protesting cuts to public services.  Already actions are being planned here in Boston for Thursday Nov 17.  Already local endorsements include the Massachusetts Nurses Association, Noam Chomsky, and the Green-Rainbow Party.  Nationally, Occupy Madison, and multiple Madison unions have endorsed.

I think we should at minimum build for actions on Nov 17 and perhaps do more than that (Occupy John Kerry's office!)...


June-teenth General Strike

June-teenth General Strike

This is a very big holiday within the African American community. Planning a large demonstration on that day, 6/19 (?), would give folks something to look forward to that is inclusive and takes a lot of planning, like a whole winter of it. I met two women tonight with a contact who makes large lighting displays; this is kind of thing he'd be into. Gunner from Arts and Culture said that someone has approached her about Spring Commitee? I disagree with making this a Washington dc demo; poor people won't go. A General Strike has to be every where. More importantly, June is the end of the Fiscal (budgeting) year for many large co.s . This means in person meetings for board of directors to approve taxes, etc. If only progressive stockholders can get in; we win. Hopefully the movement to elect progressive stockholders is ready for our support.
