FRIDAY March 15 7 pm: Anarchist Cafe

The Anarchist Cafe is on!
The Anarchist Cafe will happen on Friday March 15th from 7-10pm, the night before the San Francisco Anarchist Bookfair.
It is time to step away from our meetings and be social. We will have food, coffee, tea and music indoors and a covered hang out space outdoors. We are serving dinner until 9pm or until the food runs out, whichever comes first. As in past years, the Cafe will happen at 225 Potrero Avenue in San Francisco. We are asking for a donation of $5-20 at the door, but no one will be turned away. The money will go to support political projects.
Please no drugs or alcohol. Note the ending time, so don’t show up late and get disappointed.
If you are interested in volunteering at the Café contact Mike E. at mikee1051 (at) yahoo.com or through the event’s facebook page and include what you would like to do (make food, do dishes, or work the door) and the approximate times you can be available for.

Proceeds from the event will go towards legal expenses for the Cleveland 4.

For more information on the Cleveland 4′s case, visit their legal support site at: www.cleveland4solidarity.org. There will also be materials for folks to write and send letters to prisoners.

SUNDAY March 17: BASTARD Conference

We humbly request your participation in the 2013 instance of the Berkeley Anarchist Students of Theory And Research & Development conference. We meet every year to discuss new, old, and interesting ideas in anarchist theory. This year our emphasis is on Ethics & Aesthetics. Submit your proposals to conference@sfbay-anarchists.org
This year, BASTARD is interested in the relation of ethics and aesthetics to our ideal; are we trying to make the world more beautiful or more ethical? If we are hewing to an aesthetic vision, how does replacing the ‘good’ with the ‘beautiful’ prevent us from recreating the problems of moralism with different language, if we are retaining some concept of ethics, how is it distinct from christian or liberal morality?
What motivates us as anarchists? Not only what is sexy and appealing and easy to say, but what shapes the worlds we are trying to move toward? What criteria do we use to assess our actions or affirm our intentions, how do we make assessments of others?
How does the interplay of Ethics and Aesthetics shape our tactics, relationships, projects, and conceptions of ourselves as anarchists? How is this question related to the broad strains of anarchist thought?
We will be meeting on March 17th 2013 from 10am – 6pm. Most likely this meeting will occur in the East Bay. We look forward to seeing you all there.
