What could the world be like without calendars? Without clocks and cops and money? Without all the hierarchies and artificial categories that detach us from each other and from our connection to the earth? We’re trained into a system that fucks everything up for a few people’s gain. How can we step outside this system?
Empire, consumerism and oppression feel inevitable, inescapable — permanent. But they are not. The path we are on is not sustainable — not just ecologically, but because the weight of colonialism and injustice is sinking our ship. We’re on the verge of either catastrophe or maybe swift, radical and positive changes. Who knows? But the status quo? — probably not gonna remain.
We offer this organizer as one tool to inspire and to conspire. Born of direct action, it is made by and for people coming from another place. What else are we going to seize and create anew, based upon genuine connection? We need something visionary and forward thinking. What could possibly go right?? What beautiful rad collective experiences are waiting for us? Can we create different ways of being in the world? What would winning look like? Taking up the historical thread of activists, getting beyond paralysis and engaging with the world; that’s what we’re offering this organizer for! Creating visions together informed by our shared vulnerability, grief and solidarity!
This is the 28th year our collective has amused itself by publishing the Slingshot Organizer. Its sale raises funds to print the quarterly, radical, independent Slingshot Newspaper. We distribute the newspaper for free everywhere in the US, often at the places listed in the Radical Contact List. Let us know if you can be a local newspaper distributor in your area. Also please send us content for the paper.
