PARC APPEAL

Posted in Uncategorized on July 17, 2014 by highboldtage

Good afternoon!

For July’s rent (previous email below), we had to borrow $100 from a volunteer and good friend of PARC- and we need to pay it back!  We also have bills to pay:  electric and gas, phone lines, and the last payment for insurance on a van we use minimally, to haul our informational displays and music to various parts of town.

PARC just helped put on a wildly successful and fun Fair Wage Cafe in Cesar Chavez Park in Eureka on July 12th.  Now, we need to catch up on our bills.  Please donate whatever $ you can.

We are also in need of towels, natural dish soap, natural laundry soap, and socks.

If anyone knows of any places to rent in Eureka or thereabouts, please send some info.

Lastly, if you are new to PARC or know people who might want to help keep PARC going, but want more info about what we do here, send a note.  We would be happy to talk or email with folks about the special and critical role PARC plays, in this region, when it comes to organizing, empowerment, survival, resistance, care, and connection for various communities, movements, and individuals.

PARC’S 5TH ANNIVERSARY! PLEASE DONATE IF YOU ARE ABLE

Posted in Uncategorized on July 3, 2014 by highboldtage

PARC Anniversary, $400 needed for Rent!

Greetings from the busiest space I know, PARC. So busy that we didn’t send anything out, much less throw an anniversary party for our 5 YEAR HERE ANNIVERSARY! As of June 26th , we’ve been in our current location at the library end of 3rd Street for 5 years.

I remember… four of us (women) first opening the door, burning sage in every corner, setting up a ceramic water holder, and hanging a special hand-tied bundle of dried leaves- setting up the space to be welcoming and healthy for everyone who would enter, a creative and comfortable place in which to cultivate community in rebellion.

We have our ups and downs here. Attempting creative, empowering, and caring ways to resist, survive, and transform through the myriad problems spawned by colonialism, neo-liberalism, sexism, capitalism… disconnection.

With help from many of you (and some who don’t use email at all!), PARC stays open about 12 hours a day, 9:30am-9:30pm. THANK YOU!!  People have come to know that they can use our dishes and cooking utensils for events, call or come by to document and strategize when police or landlords have violated or are violating their rights, plan for or attend workshops and trainings, use the phone or computer, create and copy fliers and informational handbills, get help with rescuing animals, publicize “radical” events, organize encampments and protest actions, pick up various independent newspapers and reading materials, get something to eat, acquire clean warm clothes, network to find who or what they need, pick up shampoo or blankets or a toothbrush, get involved in liberatory projects, or simply… relax.

It’s not always easy to keep toilet paper stocked in the bathroom, computers working, rain from mucking up the place, everyone in dry warm clothes, phone bills paid, and ink in the copiers. Even utilizing 12 hours a day, it’s difficult to respond and organize around the NEEDS and STRUGGLES that have been created and perpetuated by a deliberate break down of community. But, we continue on…  What else can we do?!

 

Please donate what you can:

PARC bills include $750 monthly rent; gas/electricity about $60- $70; two phone bills for $25 and $55 a month.

Should the City of Eureka Open a Public Owned Gas Station?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on July 2, 2014 by highboldtage

Given the obvious in your face corruption in the local fuel supply I say YES!   A small town in Kentucky just voted to open a city owned station because the people there face the same kind of corruption that we do here in Eureka.   Its time to fight back.

 

The town is Somerset Kentucky and they seem to be a high fuel price island just like Eureka and Arcata.

PEACE GATHERINGS (here and around the country)

From: Gay Gilchrist & Janelle Egger

NATIONAL NEWS:
Troop movements within Iraq have prompted some U.S. government officials to propose an immediate response to those movements. Other officials and pundits are proposing a wider and greater response.

LOCAL NEWS:
Last weekend, many of us enjoyed wonderful oysters on the Arcata Plaza, fish in Trinidad, and baseball in Arcata.
This weekend, let’s tend to the schemes that might destroy the possibility of our children and grandchildren enjoying these delights when they are past military induction age. Join us for PEACE!

This Saturday — June 21 @ 12 noon
Humboldt County Court House – Fifth & I Streets, Eureka

Stand with Women in Black

Or

Sing, Discuss, and Wave Signs
Bring Enthusiasm and Signs for Peace!

If you cannot join us on this Saturday –

Saturdays @ 12 NOON
County Courthouse, Eureka

From:

Today, it has become increasingly likely that the U.S. government will once again take military action in Iraq. It is urgent that anti-war forces mobilize to tell the Obama Administration that the people of this country completely oppose any new war on Iraq.

The ANSWER Coalition is gearing up for such efforts, and is calling for nationwide demonstrations on Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21, as well as emergency actions the day U.S. bombing starts, in the event that it happens before these dates.

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld should be arrested and prosecuted for their criminal acts in Iraq. It was the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq that destroyed the country and brought about the current crisis. There is nothing the Pentagon can do with more air strikes and destruction to undo that, or bring about peace now.

We in the anti-war movement fought too long and too hard to prevent and end that illegal and unjust war. We cannot sit by idly today when the Pentagon may be about to open a new chapter in its history of death and destruction.
