About The Way We Organize

May 12, 2010 at 5:05 pm (Uncategorized)

Our intention with this project is to confront prison, our chosen strategy is to mobilize during the G20 to gain momentum as a way to strengthen existing struggles and challenge the State. We want this demonstration to complement the rest of the convergence, as we think the other events of the weekend will complement the demonstration.

Our chosen method of organization is informal. We are not “an organization”. We are friends, and our decision to organize together is based on existing relationships and a common project. We are a closed collective.

We don’t want to be involved in SOAR (Southern Ontario Anarchist Resistance) or TCMN (Toronto Community Mobilization Network), not because we are against them. We respect both organizations and their efforts in opposing the G20. We don’t want to go to the meetings or organize the actions and marches because we are working on our own initiatives in our own way. As individuals many of us are excited to attend these events and think it is important that they’re being organized. Our collective doesn’t attend the larger anti-G20 network meetings, not as a political stance or a boycott or whatever, but based on a different way of organizing.

All information that people need to know will be on the website, and disseminated through the internet and street promotion. We encourage people who have concerns, critiques, or contributions to this discussion to please email us or post comments.

It is up to you, as individuals, to find your own place within the Anti-Prison struggle, to decide for yourself if you are in solidarity with this project, and to act as you wish.

Solidarity,

Fire.Works.For.Prisons
