Request for Volunteers for NYC Encuentro for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism

Request for artistic support for Movement for Justice in El Barrio’s Encuentro for Humanity, Sunday, December 4th, 3PM, Location TBA.

Arts and Culture is working in solidarity with Movement for Justice in El Barrio by providing creative support. We need:

  • Performers
  • Clowns
  • Musicians
  • Artists and artwork
  • Media/ Tech/ Live-Stream folk
  • And any other creative minds, voices and bodies

Please email James @jamesfredericrose to volunteer!

From Chiapas to South Africa, from Egypt to Greece and Spain, from El Barrio, NYC to Occupy Wall St., together we have shown that “dignity,” “justice,” and “democracy” are not concepts to be imagined, but realities we must live and nourish.

Those from above- the 1%- who attempt to control our lives and plunder our world feed off our divisions as a people.

True liberation means knocking down hierarchies, and building a new world from the bottom up.

To do this we must engage in the most powerful form of rebellion: Listening to all those from below.

We invite you to our corner of the world, East Harlem (El Barrio), a neighborhood and community that has organized and fought back against oblivion for years, to join us in the NYC Encuentro for Humanity and Against Neoliberalism.

An Encuentro is a moment of human exchange and reflection; it is a gathering. An Encuentro is not a meeting, a panel or a conference; it is a way of sharing developed by the Zapatistas as another form of doing politics: from below and to the left. It is a place where we can all speak, we will all listen, and we can all learn. It is a place where we can share the many different struggles that make us one.

Arts and Culture Meeting SCHEDULE CHANGES

At Tuesday’s meeting (11/22/11), a proposal was passed to reduce Arts and Culture meetings to Two (2) weekdays and one (1) weekend day per week, all at 60 Wall Street.

The meeting schedule changes is an attempt to end the fragmentation, inaction, and confusion that daily meetings were causing. Beginning next week (week of the 28th), Arts and Culture will meet on:

Monday and Thursday at 6:00PM
Saturday at 11AM

The Saturday meeting is intended to serve as a guild report-back meeting.
