( part of DIY city project http://www.teeseitsekaupunki.net/)

Working languages: English with Finnish translation

My Dads Strip Club takes up the challenge to work with local citizens
to 'Answer Back'.

How do we break out of the climate of hypnotized passivity that the
products and adverts cultivate?

"Hey Coke, do you wanna see what The Real Thing feels like"

We want to culture a spirit of answering back with an emphasis on good
time and playfulness. We envisage a mix of 'creatives' and 'resisters'
working together to improvise and make new responses to the city in a
creative and lively way. This DIY approach is a chance to bring
together different ideas and build networks for future creative
actions in Finland. The emphasis will be on fun, building confidence
and relationships.

Radical Academics in Neoliberal University Inc: Experiences and Horizons

Join us for an evening of talks, screenings, discussions and a late
evening social at the Square Social Centre, London WC1. Wednesday 24th
of May, 6-11pm.

Universities across the UK and the US are increasingly driven by a
strict corporate logic, leaving less space for alternative, radical
voices to be heard. Anarchists were among the first to be hit hard by
this: in the US, Ward Churchill (University of Colorado) and David
Graeber (Yale University) have been the first victims of a
neo-McCarthyist wave.

Using the opportunity of David Graeber’s visit to the UK we are
putting together an event to discuss the experiences, horizons and
prospects of radical academics working in Neoliberal University Inc
today; to find out more about repression against them and how we can
help; but also to learn from each others positive experiences,
strengthen our links and discuss alternative educational structures!

Speakers to include:

Massimo De Angelis (University of East London, UK)
David Graeber (Yale University, US)
Ed Emery (Universitas adversitatis) (tbc!)

If you want to talk at the event, get yourself some very basic (but
free!) accommodation or simply let us know you are coming,

Culture & Conflict Group present H3, a film about the
1981 Irish hunger Strike.

irish Hunger Strike Film "H3"

New York City, May 5, 2006

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Irish
Hunger Strike, in which Bobby Sands and nine other
Irish Republican prisoners died in Long Kesh prison in
Northern Ireland, the Culture & Conflict Group will
present a screening of the film "H3".

Friday May 5, 2006 7pm

The Bridge

521 West 26th Street between 10th & 11th Avenues.

Free Admission

"H3" tells the story of the hunger strike from the point
of view of the prisoners in Long Kesh prison. Set in
the H-Blocks of the Maze prison in the North of
Ireland — and co-written by Laurence McKeown who spent
70 days on hunger strike — "H3" charts the period from
the beginning of the hunger strike up until Bobby
Sands' death on 5th May 1981. Through the eyes of
fictional characters, the hunger strikers' survival is
charted with dignity, comradeship and a sense of
humor. The film was directed by Les Blair and stars a
cast of actors drawn mostly from Northern Ireland.

The evening will also includes an exhibition of
artwork and posters from the period of the hunger
strike as well as music and songs about Bobby Sands
and the other hunger strikers by Mary Courtney of the
band Morning Star.

Doors open at 6pm. The screening of "H3" starts at 7pm

The Bridge is the gallery space which currently hosts
the exhibition Made in Palestine. It is the first
museum quality exhibition devoted to the contemporary
art of Palestine to be held in the United States. It
is a survey of work spanning three generations of
Palestinian artists who live in the West Bank, Gaza
Strip, Palestine '48, Syria, Jordan, and the United

New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists Meeting
May 14, 2006

Calling all anarchists, antiauthoritarians, horizontalists and grassroots activists!

Mark your calendars: You are cordially invited to the third New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists/Alianza de Anarquistas del área metropolitana de Nueva York (NYMAA) General Assembly.

Time: Sunday, May 14, 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Place: Church of the Ascension, 221 West 107th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway in Manhattan. In the basement.

Directions: 1 train to 110th Street/Cathedral Parkway, walk South and East. B or C trains to 110th Street/Cathedral Parkway, walk South and West.

Three months and growing! NYMAA is slowly but surely on its way to developing a historic presence of anarchist revolutionaries on the streets of New York City. More than 100 activists have made their choice. Organized anarchism is needed now more than ever, so come and see what we're all about!

In order for the ideas of horizontalism and revolution to firmly take root among a broad cross-section of people, anarchists need to band together for the purpose of initiating and nurturing a wide range of projects. NYMAA's aim is to build momentum and contribute to a genuine movement of resistance and liberation that can ultimately uproot the brutality of authoritarianism, capitalism, and oppression.

NYMAA is in the process of forming, building, and growing local "chapters" and working groups, thereby gradually planting the seeds of capitalist destruction. At our General Assemblies there is always ample time allotted for both casual socializing and face-to-face discussions. Food and drink, as well as childcare, will be provided.

You can read more about NYMAA and familiarize yourself with its basic organizational structure (this is strongly recommended) by visiting

Proposals and other agenda items for the General Assembly are welcomed. Please e-mail them along with any RSVPs (especially if you're bringing kids!) to: nymaa-comms [at] riseup [dot] net

History / Herstory in the making! Don't miss it!

See you there!

The New York Metro Alliance of Anarchists (NYMAA) is a broad organization of anarchists and anti-authoritarians who live in the New York metropolitan area. NYMAA is a social revolutionary organization. Thus, our ultimate aim is to eradicate all forms of authoritarianism, hierarchy, and domination and help build a genuinely liberatory, self-managed, directly democratic society. To that end our immediate aim is to bring anarchists together on a common plane of struggle for the purpose of growing and expanding the movement and spreading our ideas.

"Affordable Housing in Brooklyn"

Brooklyn, NY, May 9, 2006

Affordable Housing in Brooklyn: Challenges + Solutions

7 PM, May 9, 2006

Brooklyn Central Public Library
Second Floor Meeting Room

According to a recent survey by the Community Service Society, when New Yorkers are asked "what personally worries you the most?" their leading response is "housing." As the Nation's affordable rental housing stock continues to shrink, many low and middle-income residents are facing a housing crisis.

For residents of Brooklyn, New York City's most populous borough, continued gentrification and the loss of subsidized housing make finding affordable, safe, transit-accessible housing a formidable task.

The expert panelists will address the increasing challenge of providing affordable housing in Brooklyn and will respond with solutions—both realized and possible. Specific Brooklyn projects incorporating affordable housing will be addressed (including Greenpoint-Williambsburg and Atlantic Yards), followed by a discussion of broader city and regional issues impacting Brooklyn. Two respondents will address the
panel to clarify issues addressed by the panelists and segue into the general question and answer portion.

"Ethnic Cleansing & Slavery in Contemporary Africa"
Anarchist Forum
New York City, May 9, 2006

On Tuesday, May 9, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum
will present a panel discussing Ethnic Cleansing and Slavery in
Contemporary Africa with emphasis on Mauritania, Sudan and Darfur.

The panel
will include Abdarahmane Wone and Mamadou Barry, members of FLAM (African
Liberation Front of Mauritania), and other African activists. They will
describe the frightening situations in North Africa as they really are. We
hear reporters speak of slavery as it is in Africa today and of the deaths
caused by the armed forces of one ethnic group killing the ordinary people
of another ethnic group, but the panel will speak not as reporters but as
people who have lived in the societies where these horrors were taking
place. After the presentation the panel will answer questions from the
audience and speak about what can be done to remedy the situations.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street,
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets) (212-242-4201).
Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop
or take a 1, 2, or 3 train to the 14th Street and 7th Avenue stop.

Everybody is welcome and invited to come and to have their say.
Admission is free for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is
