Announcing the Cascadian Anarchist Olympics!
We found this on Grey Coast Anarchists, who found it on Puget Sound Anarchists. Word is getting around Cascadia!
Their site is www.cascadiananarchistolympics.wordpress.com
A weekend of Anarchy in Olympia, April 20, 21, & 22!
We’re excited to announce three days and two nights of Cascadians converging on Olympia to practice our skills in a series of mock competitions, short demonstrations, skillshares and games that help to arm us with tactical knowledge for upcoming protests, demonstrations and actions. We believe sharing this knowledge and gathering socially will better prepare us all for success and safety on the streets, on May Day and beyond.
Friday night, we introduce each other to the format of the (A) Olympics as well as find lodging and camping options.
Saturday and Sunday mornings, we will be doing a series of presentations and hands-on workshops aimed at sharing skills and knowledge that will help us fight and win both on and off the streets, such as cell phone security, tear gas defense, and more. Saturday and Sunday afternoons will be mock competitions, including speed consensus, slingshot target practice, team de-blocing and more.
We’re exploring getting food, music, and speakers to help fill out the schedule.
Childcare may be provided. We aren’t sure at this point, but we’re trying.
If you would like to facilitate a workshop, presentation or skillshare, or if you need special accommodations with lodging or anything else, or if you have any other questions or concerns,
please contact the organizers at cascadiananarchistolympics(at)riseup(dot)net
