to Spontaneous Celebrations
Assembling Peace II
"Assembling Peace II" will
be held at the Spontaneous
Celebrations community center in Jamaica Plain on Saturday,
October 8 from 7:00pm-1:00am. This is a fundraiser and pep rally
for the October 29th Anti-War March and Rally that is taking place
in Boston (http://www.oct29.org/).
The October 8th, Assembling Peace
II is a follow up to the first Assembling Peace, which took place
at the same location on March 26. The goal of that event (and
for this event on 10/8) was to introduce new people to activism
and provide a chance for the existing activist community in Boston
to meet in a forum that was relaxed, energizing and fun. About
250 people participated or attended and profits from that party
went towards Boston Mobilization to help with the costs of putting
on the March 20 anti-war protest in Boston. Pictures of the 3/26
Assembling Peace can be seen here:
Spontaneous Celebrations has two
floors and can hold 280 occupants. The first floor will be set
up for organizations to provide information tables and introduce
themselves, network, promote their actions and find new volunteers.
There is a side room on the first floor that will be set up for
massage chairs and arts related activities like making protest
signs. There will also be food on the first floor, in addition
to the cash bar upstairs.
The Second floor has a bar that will
serve beer, wine and fair trade coffee (courtesy of Equal Exchange).
There is a stage on the second floor that will host the performers
and speakers. A diverse array of musicians, poets, comedians,
entertainers and speakers will alternate on this stage. Every
organization that tables on the first floor is encouraged to speak.

four main objectives are:

2) Embrace Individual Empowerment
– Middle class Americans are among the most powerful people
in the world. The power to vote and your choice of who to support
through consumerism, leave YOU poised to make a difference.
3) Educate Yourself – Don’t
let mass media shape your viewpoint—especially when they
use fear to support propaganda that convinces us to vote against
our own best interests.
4) Use the Alternative Model –
Vote with your dollars—use pacifism to boycott companies
that engage in global injustice. Think about your effect on the
environment with each and every choice you make. And most of all,
have fun! Don’t let the bureaucrats tell you that you should
be afraid. Life is beautiful, enjoy it!
