Building a Gift Economy: Experiences from Catalonia’s Autonomous Infrastructure
Learn about the ideas and the practices surrounding the Libertarian Infrastructures Gathering, an initiative in Catalonia that seeks to create an intergenerational, communal struggle, and resist the eternal dynamics of isolation, capitalist co-optation, or activist burn-out, all the while encouraging and strengthening the projects that allow us to reclaim our lives by meeting our needs through self-organization and mutual aid.
This talk will address questions of strategy in confrontations against the State and capitalism, debates surrounding the gift economy and alternative currencies, conflicting visions of formal or informal organization, imbalances between urban and rural modes of action, models for how to build healthy networks, and ideas for revolutionary projects.
February 3rd – 2-4 PM

We’re calling for a public demonstration in response to the series of arrests at Occupy demonstrations, of anarchist comrades, and those involved in various local struggles. Rather than accept this flurry of legal cases and police harassment or shift responsibility to those individuals facing charges, we believe it’s vital to socially contest state repression.
Meet at noon at People’s Park (Kirkwood and Grant) for music, hanging out, and flyering.
Court dates are at 1.30 and 2 pm at the Courthouse.
A new poster and two-sided flyer about the recent repression and examining the police strategy can be found here and here.
