WARNING: THE MEN IN GREY ARE STEALING ALL OUR TIME!
We’re told to work more and more, faster and faster. They say the more we work now, the more time we’ll have later — but we have less! Less time to play, be creative, hang out with friends, be imaginative!
You are invited to a clandestine meeting to help expose the work of the Men in Grey! We will be reading Momo or, the strange story of the time-thieves and the child who brought the stolen time back to the people, by Michael Ende.
Tell your friends! Bring a snack to share! Or do something amazing with that time instead!

The Minneapolis Childcare Collective provides childcare in solidarity with queers, women, people of color, and poor people, especially poor mothers of color, who are responsible for a disproportional amount of childcare, often excluding them from participating in projects of social change and resistance. We are a volunteer-run organization that is dedicated to providing high quality child care in order to support parents and caregivers’ involvement in organizations of resistance and community building.

To Care is to Struggle: Support in Radical Movements – 2/17 – 5pm
To Care is to Struggle: Support in Radical Movements
17 February 2013 @ 5pm
Minnehaha Free Space – 3747 Minnehaha Ave. Minneapolis, MN
A talk by Kevin Van Meter of Team Colors.
How do radical movements respond to personal crises, trauma, care as well as issues that flow through our everyday lives? Beyond seeing politics as a simply a set of issues and positions, how do we begin to construct new relationships, activities and projects that address issues such as mental health, care, trauma and grief, sexual assault, and interpersonal violence?
This discussion seeks to address some of these questions in two ways: in the specific sense of developing harm intervention systems, creating communities of care, addressing sexual assault and organizing around issues of mental health; and in the general sense of creating movements that don’t see such projects as appendages but rather as a core element in reconstructing our lives, creating movements that self-reproduce themselves, and to forge projects that challenge the social reproduction of capital and the state-apparatus by constructing new forms of life and new social relations.
About the Event:
The event will consist of a short talk followed by a facilitated discussion based on a recent article by Team Colors Collective member Kevin Van Meter called “To Care is to Struggle” published in Perspectives on Anarchist Theory. Copies of Perspectives will be available at the event and can be obtained from AK Press here: http://www.akpress.org/perspectivesonanarchisttheorymagazine.html
