The Last Anarchist Cafe Before the World Ends

The End is near! You better get to the A-Cafe now while you still can!!

This will be the final A-Cafe held before the Mayan Apocalypse. So, we are going to be putting our plans onto the fast track and working on a five day plan to overthrow the world’s governments.

If you’ve been meaning to come but just haven’t made it yet or haven’t been in a while and want to catch up with old friends, you had better make it this week before it is too late. Even the regulars will want to be there to wish their fellow Anarchists farewell and good luck in the afterlife.

The Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe meets Saturdays, from 6:00—8:00pm, at Sunrise Coffee Shop, which is located on Sunset Rd. between Pecos and Eastern. The A-Cafe is not a place, it’s an event–a social experiment in urban anarchy, organized by the Southern Nevada Alliance of the Libertarian Left and a group of unaffiliated local anarchists. The A-Cafe is a forum for anarchists in the Las Vegas area to get to know each other, to hang out, to shoot the breeze, to talk some shop, to talk about the projects that we are working on, and to organize new projects. Anyone who’s an anarchist, anti-statist, or just anarchy-curious is invited to join us.

Drop in any time — the gathering is informal, and based on chatting and sharing information. There isn’t a fixed agenda. (But if you want to set up an organizing meeting for a particular project with a fixed agenda, A-Cafe is a great place to meet people to invite.) Feel free to drop in at any time and leave whenever you need to.

Bring yourself. Bring a friend. And bring anything — ideas you’ve had, projects you’re working on, literature, zines, flyers, art, whatever — that you’d like to share with some like-minded people.

A Full menu this week at the A-Cafe (10-13-12)

We’re going to have a lot of things going on this week, none of which you should miss:

  • We’ll be planning for a informational meeting of the Industrial Workers of the World on October 20th, which several Fellow Workers from other cities will be attending. This meeting will include basic introductory information about labor organizing and the IWW in particular with an emphasis on efforts to form a local General Membership Branch for Las Vegas area workers.
  • As usual, we will be affording time for organizational topics relating to local mutual aid projects, such as Food Not Bombs.
  • There will be a discussion about recent developments in the case of Stanley Gibson, who was murdered by Ofc. Jesus Arevalo, an employee of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, late last year. In a veiled attempt to avoid holding Arevalo accountable for his actions, District Attorney Steve Wolfson has submitted the case to a grand jury rather than issuing charge himself. Nevada Cop Block (NVCopBlock.org) is calling for an action to bring attention to this underhanded attempt to protect a murderer.
  • Also, the Sunset Activist Collective will be spearheading several initiatives in the coming months, including a Black Friday counteraction and monthly rotating boycotts/awareness campaigns against targeted ALEC corporations.
  • And, of course, anything you want to discuss or bring attention to.

This Week at the Anarchist Cafe (A-Cafe) Sept-15-2012

Newly Created Cop Block Press Passes

Among other things, we will be discussing the second annual “Chalk the Police Day” hosted by Nevada Cop Block (in conjunction with the national Cop Block chapter and over 30 local Cop Block groups), which will take place Oct. 1st; the anniversary of the first Occupy encampment in Zucotti Park, New York, which will take place this Monday, Sept. 17th; ongoing organizational planning for a local Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) GMB; and “business” issues relating to Las Vegas Food Not Bombs.

We will also have the newly created official Cop Block press passes available for anybody that hasn’t already seen them. In addition, if you have any issues, actions, or events you are involved with feel free to come down and present them to attendees.

This Week (6-2-12) the A-Cafe Organizes for the Zombie Apocalypse

Zombie Che Approves

All signs point to the Zombie Apocalypse having arrived. Are we properly prepared for it? And if not, what can we do to get there?

We will discuss this important topic in vivid detail. A powerpoint presentation may be shown…This week we will discuss potential location and/or time changes for the A-Cafe in light of the “summer hours” that the Coffee Bean is now using (the now close at 6pm, which is when the A-Cafe starts). The potential options are move the time up or find somewhere else to hold it that is open later. Any suggestions are welcome, but it would be best to decide on a solid choice and stick with it, in order to avoid the confusion that comes with moving around from one week to the next.

Also, once again we will continue planning for the candlelight vigil in honor of Stanley Gibson scheduled for June 12, which marks six months since he was murdered by a member of the LV Metro Police Department. We’ll also discuss the official launch of Nevada Cop Block, a police accountability group, ways you can get involved and support it, and why you should.

In addition, we will be discussing the IWW and the necessity of labor activism in today’s economy. As well as hosting the weekly organizational meeting for Las Vegas Food Not Bombs. Other potential subjects to be discussed include corporatism within the downtown community and efforts to facilitate gentrification by local politicians. And of course, any subject/project you might want to discuss.

The Vegas Anarchist Cafe is a weekly meet-up for networking, building community, and doing some outreach for Anarchists in Las Vegas, which Southern Nevada Alliance of the Libertarian Left has been organizing together with unaffiliated local Anarchists for the past three years. The main idea is just to give Anarchists, anti-statists, and Anarchy-curious fellow travelers a place to meet up and talk in an informal setting at a local coffee-house. There isn’t a fixed business agenda; the idea is to give people a place to find each other. Once they’ve found each other, A-Cafe can serve as a springboard for the independent projects that they may want to start.

Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe – Saturday May 12, 2012

Anarchy in LV

The Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe meets every Saturday from 6-8pm

As was the case last week, Rondha Gibson will be in attendance to discuss the murder of her husband, Stanley L. Gibson, by a member of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and we will continue to plan for an upcoming vigil June 12th, marking the 6 month “anniversary” of his killing. In addition, since this week’s A-Cafe falls on the 5 month “anniversary” of that unfortunate day, we will be having a small informal candlelight vigil in Stanley’s honor at the conclusion of the Anarchist Cafe.

Some other topics we will potentially be discussing if we have sufficient time, include Zappos’ corporate takeover of First Friday and use of extortion via the city and Metro to push out competition from the Arts Factory and the local artists that actually created First Friday, moving forward with Nevada Cop Block (ties into the issues with Metro), and of course, anything you want to bring up.

Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe (at the UNLV Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf)

As you can see by the corrections below, the “foreseeable future” has arrived for the A-Cafe. If you want to know exactly what happened and why, come down and ask us about it and we’ll give you the long answer. The short explanation is that the original Occupy Las Vegas campsite was set up by Democrats trying to co-opt and redirect the Occupy movement (which also happened in numerous other cities).

Members of the Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe, along with genuine Occupiers, were instrumental in recognizing this, exposing it to other Occupy Las Vegas members, and forming a legitimate Occupy group in Las Vegas, which is organized online at http://occupylv.org.

As result of all this, the A-Cafe has subsequently relocated back to our original meeting place at the UNLV Coffee Bean, located at 4550 S. Maryland Pkwy. We currently meet from 6-8pm every Saturday evenings.

As always, the Las Vegas Anarchist Cafe is recognized as an independent affinity group of OccupyLV. What this means is that people wishing to become involved in the local Occupy group can do so through the A-Cafe. However, it also means that attendees of the A-Cafe are in no way obligated to participate, agree with, or in any other way participate in the Occupy movement here or elsewhere.

———————————————————————

The A-Cafe is currently meeting on location as part of the #OccupyLasVegas (http://occupylv.org/ ) activities. Tonight (and for the foreseeable future), we will be meeting at the campsite, which is located at the overflow parking lot for the Double Down Saloon between Paradise and Swenson and directly across from the thomas and Mack Center UNLV Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. There will also be a potluck dinner and a concert as part of the Occupy Las Vegas events that you can participate in, if you wish.

If you have any trouble finding the location, call Kelly at 702-530-9123.
