RNC Welcoming Committee NE Tour
by RNC-WC Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2007 at 4:51 PM

The RNC Welcoming Committee, with some help and company from our comrades in Unconventional Action, will be touring the Northeast between the end of January and the (late-ish) middle of February. We’ll be spreading antiRNC fervor and gathering feedback, information and resources for next September.

The RNC Welcoming Committee is delighted to announce an early 2008 tour of these stolen lands we call the United States. Between the end of January and the (as-yet-unnamed, pReNC-like) event we’re planning for Mayday weekend, we’d like to cover the entire country, region by region, spreading antiRNC fervor and gathering feedback, information and resources for next September. The more networking and exchange we have now, the stronger we’ll be come convention crashing time!

Understanding that most people can’t make it out to Minnesota before the Convention, we see this tour as an opportunity to bring the Welcoming Committee to your hometown, and to bring your thoughts, ideas and voices back to Minnesota. We’ll be prepared to do everything from a basic “What the RNC Will Look Like” presentation, to strategizing and infoswapping sessions, to one-on-one discussion with folks organizing for the protests. Additionally, we’d love to see the tour stops incorporate workshops and skillshares- street medic, direct action, consensus, you name it- that address the needs and interests of people in your community. While we don’t expect funds (or lack thereof) at any one stop to be a deal-breaker, we would appreciate any help in paying for this thing and in saving up for anticipated costs at the RNC, be it through shows, student groups, or sorcery. And, of course, we’d like somewhere to rest our heads occasionally along the way!

If you’d like us to stop in your city, township, or Hooverville, or just have questions or concerns, email tour (a) riseup.net. And if you just want to stay informed, watch this page for details in the weeks to come, and join our announcements list by emailing rnc08-subscribe (a) lists.riseup.net.
