On August 6th and 20th, 2017 from 6pm to 9pm Pacific, add to our virtual gathering voice and chat discussion weaving worlds of mutual care. As always, our encounters are happening on the eve of the full moon and new moon. This month is special because we have a lunar eclipse on August 7th and a solar eclipse on the 21st.
The dual focus of this month’s gatherings will be:
-Autonomous healthcare/medicine, energy, food, housing, & water!
-Financing our day to day survival and creative works amid crisis & collapse***
Our general theme is quite broad as the purpose of these encounters is to hold space for organizing against extinction and collective suicide on earth. Whether we consider ourselves activists and organizers or just “everyday people,” there is so much complexity that goes into our daily existence and how we plan for and walk into the future(s). This is a chance to criss cross and map flight paths and attempt to get an idea of and begin sketching, painting, sculpting, writing and acting “the bigger picture.” The details of what we end up focusing on and what comes of these gatherings is entirely dependent on who shows up and what we decide to focus on.
Everyone with good intent and commitment to creating a hospitable earth for all is welcome. Trolls will be summarily booted and banned.
For details on how to attend and to RSVP, see immwe.org/encounters

***We are also interested in opening a very particular discussion space regarding collective responses to Patreon’s recent removal from their platform of the anarchist news clearinghouse It’s Going Down and more generally creating alternatives to for-profit financing of decolonizing and liberatory projects and the day to day livelihood of artists and caregivers.***
