In an effort to get people more on the same page of ongoing events of interest to anarchists, anti-authoritarians, and revolutionary anti-capitalists, we're going to start putting out updates on events. Be they informational, actions, court dates to support arrested comrades, or what have you. For ongoing events at various spaces, such as the Long Haul in Berkeley, the Holdout in Oakland, and across the bay area, please see those websites. These are a couple coming up that are worth checking out. Hope to keep this updated. Check out the events page.

Eviction Free Summer will fight to the end! Join the campaign on Saturday August 10th
