Dear friends and radical activists,
Some of the members of Olympia Ecovillage are helping with the 2007 A World
Beyond Capitalism (AWBC) Conference. The AWBC is an annual event of
unparalleled access and outreach, and so it should be no surprise that we're
going to try a radical 2-city approach to the AWBC this year: The Seattle,
Washington venue will feature open forum networking amongst activists who
desire a world free from capitalism, rather than speakers and topics. The
Olympia venue will feature speakers and workshops from all over the world. Both
events are completely free of charge.
The first portion of the ABWC on October 4th will be in Olympia, Washington.
The first day of the conference, including lunch with free vegan and vegetarian
food, will be held at the Millersylvania Park Environmental Learning Center
(ELC) starting at 1pm. The ELC includes a dining hall/ kitchen, restrooms/
showers, one amphitheater, one private swim area, eight canoes, two rowboats,
three Ballfields, plus a volleyball and a horseshoe court so there will be
plenty of room for break out groups.
The initial workshops (such as Theatre of the Oppressed at 1pm) will be taught
here and there will be free time to enjoy the hiking trails and canoes,
rowboats, ballfields, and the volleyball and a horseshoe court.
The ELC also has about 40 tables so people are free to exhibit on these tables
with their non-corporate, non-government (and definitely non-politician)
activist group material from 1pm-3pm.
Millersylvania Park is an 842-acre camping park with 3,300 feet of
freshwater shoreline on Deep Lake. The park, filled with trails, is
abundant in old-growth cedar and fir trees.
Millersylvania Park is located at 12245 Tilly Road South, Olympia,
Free shuttles to Millersylvania departs at 12noon on October 4th, 2007 from 225
Milroy Street NW, Olympia, WA 98502 and returns by 4pm on the same day.
There will also be many film festivals by night at other locations on October
4th and many classes, workshops by day on October 5th and as well as an awesome
performance on October 5th!
The second portion of the AWBC will be in Seattle beginning on Saturday,
October 20th, 2007. It will begin at 1pm.
The AWBC will officially end at 3pm on Oct 20th, 2007.
Location of Oct 20th event:
4001 - 9th Avenue NE
Seattle, WA 98105
Everything is free…As it should be.
Donations are still needed for food, flyers and whole lot more. Special Thanks
to Syd Fredrickson who contributed $25.00 which helps because every bit counts.
Multilingual translators, people fluent in sign language and more shuttle bus
drivers are needed. Thanks!
Love for the people,
