Errors in issue #114 of Slingshot

• Last issue we incorrectly stated that the Candlelight Collective in West Bend, WI no longer existed — and that West Bend WI, itself, did not exist. In fact, West Bend and Candlelight exist. The address published in the 2014 organizer is correct. The error we were trying to correct was that the Candlelight Collective address is also listed under Indiana. That listing is wrong – Candlelight is in Wisconsin, not Indiana. There is a West Bend in both Indiana and Wisconsin. Sorry for the error.

• Issue #114 said we mistaken left out the Meg Perry Center in Portland, ME, but it turns out they are not operating right now so our omission was not an error.

• The address we published for the Green Bike Coop in Waldport, OR doesn’t work for sending snail mail but is the physical address.

• In issue #114, we listed the People’s Art Collective in New Haven, CT as a new space, but it has already folded as of November.

Corrections to the 2014 Slingshot Organizer

We forgot to include the Black Coffee Coop in Seattle, WA. They are at 501 E. Pine St. Seattle, WA 98122 blackcoffeecoop.com.

The GNU Gallery in Ft. Collins, CO lost their space.

The LUNk Collective House in Lincoln, NE changed their name and location. They are now the Common Root Mutual Aid Center at 3333 Cleveland Ave, Suite 1, Lincoln, NE 68504, commonroot.net.

We didn’t list the Pangea House in Minot, North Dakota because we weren’t sure of their address. They moved and are now at 110 1st St. SE Ste. C Minot, ND 58701

The Dream City Collective in Washington DC is no longer active.

In the spiral organizer, the section for Brazil under “Latin America” says Argentina, not Brazil.

We got an email telling us that we should not include the BRYCC House in Louisville, KY because of problems with the project. We also got an envelope we mailed there returned. . .

The same email told us that we should not list the Social Justice Center in Madison, WI. It is hard for us to fact–check the allegations in the email so folks can investigate these projects for themselves.

We published the wrong zip code for Red Emma’s in Baltimore – it should be 21201.

It seems like the Bike City Recyclery in Fayetteville, AR closed – we got mail returned from them and their webpage is inactive.

The address for Denk–mal in Bern Switzerland has has changed. They are now located in a larger space at Lagerweg 12, 3013 Bern Switzerland.
