Building a cluster of Baltimore radicals for the January 20 Presidential Inauguration. BALTIMORE IS RISING! The Baltimore Rising Cluster we are forming is not an umbrella organization and has no decision making authority. It is a tool to connect folks who want to work on similar actions, a forum to coordinate autonomous counter-inaugeral working groups and a palce for participating organizations to share information on the state of their planning adn to share any needs and ideas. We are coordinating housing for out of towners, legal trainings in and for Baltimore folks heading to DC, ride shares, medical trainings for those interested in being street medics, as well as have several people representing the various tactics and actions that will be taking place in DC, from the Turn Your Back On Bush()() mobilization, to Anarchists, to Queer Fist support work. This is a good oppportunity to plug into what is going on and get the info you need to be on the streets of DC. So come out this Sunday, January 2nd, to represent the Baltimore radical community coming together against the Presidential Inauguration in January. We hope to see many faces of the Baltimore radical communty to meet and continue building links for local organizing. Progressive Action Center – 1443 Gorsuch Avenue -Baltimore – Sunday January 2 – 2 to 4 pm Drinks and snacks! Baltimore Rising Bush([search])’s re-election promises to continue systemic attacks on women, people of color and queer communities, a dramatic increase in violence in the middle east, and our families sinking deeper into poverty. Now as always we need to see the faces of resistance our community in Baltimore nurtures; to support each other as we seek change to the disastrous path our “leaders” take us down. The Baltimore Rising Cluster’s goal is to mobilize Baltimore radicals disenfranchised and alienated by American “democracy” to attend the inaugural protests in Washington DC as a cluster of affinity groups. The overall goal of which would be building community here at home, watching each others back on the streets, and protecting unarrestables. The intent of this is not to form a new organization but to create space and means towards building community in Baltimore. We feel we can use the January 20th Inauguration demonstrations in DC to build community, connect struggles, and get to really know each other and provide support to one another. This cluster is also for people who feel frustrated and alienated by traditional radical left organizing. We are creating space to set realistic goals for this demo and not simply following formula with no end. Baltimore Rising seeks to confront Patriarchy, White Supremacy, Homophobia, and Heterosexism, towards destroying Empire and Capitalism. We seek to mobilize the radical community in Baltimore and work towards Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarian alternatives towards empowering ourselves and our communities.
