Call for Denver Autonomous Assembly
Denver Autonomous Assembly
First Tuesday of Every Month
Deerpile (Upstairs From City o City)
7-9 PM 12/06/2016
206 E 13th Ave, Denver, CO 80203
In the wake of Trump’s election we have seen a rise in white-supremacist attacks on marginalized communities, a growing white nationalist movement, and attempts from “the left” to stifle and contain resistance to it. The Denver Autonomous Assembly is a space where people can come together and collaborate on radical projects, campaigns, and actions.
We are done giving power to politicians. This is not a space for electoral politics, campaigning, or NGOs. You cannot vote away bigotry or the latent fascism in Trump that awakens white supremacists. We must create radical institutions in our own neighborhoods and communities if we want real change. Our goal is to remove any possibility of Trump taking power from us by taking power into our own hands.
A few things:
-This space will strive to be strongly empathetic with peoples’ lived experiences, and to be revolutionarily organized.
-The Denver Autonomous Assembly will be a space where campaigns and projects will grow from. It will provide a space for people to recognize that we must agitate, educate, and organize.
-This is a space for intentional organizing, not speeches.
-This is not a space for oppressive behavior, which will be confronted and remediated.
-This is open to the public.
-This is a place where people will collaborate on issues that need solidarity through direct action and mutual aid.
-Please bring thought-out proposals and/or already existing projects that need help.
