Hey, I'm not an APOC or helping organize this, I just thought I would pass along the message.

October 2009 APOC Summit

Good People!

What's good in your hood? How are you? It's time for us to meet again. Some APOC have put together this get together to find out what's poppin. The time has come to take our struggles to new places. To do that we should see where we're at. How far have we come since we parted ways? How can we push and challenge ourselves while supporting each other?

All attendees of the October 2009 APOC Summit in Philadelphia, PA must agree to and respect the Revolutionary Principles of Unity.

Revolutionary Principles of Unity

1. We call for a social revolution to erect an entire new society.

2. We want decent housing, food, clothing and other essentials for all, not just the rich.

3. We oppose all forms of colonialism and imperialism in the Third and Fourth Worlds and support the struggles of all oppressed peoples in the West.

4. We oppose nation-state wars and the building of a fascist police state based on hysteria over “terrorism.”

5. We oppose any form of white supremacy, white cultural chauvinism, whiteness or internalized racism in the Anarchist movement, and call for unity and recognition of our right to autonomy.

6. We strive and fight to dismantle, deconstruct and unlearn (in no particular order but all at once) white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, heterosexism, speciesism, transphobia, queerphobia, environmental racism, ageism, classism, authoritarianism, the State and all forms of oppression.

7. We oppose the oppression of wimmin/women, queers, transfolk, two spirit people, youth, genderqueers, differently able-bodied people, people with mental health complexities, animals and all that are oppressed.

8. We oppose any forms of capitalism and class oppression and support the liberation of the poor and the workers.

9. We call for an immediate moratorium of the death penalty and the dismantling of the prison industrial complex.

10. We demand an immediate end to all violence against all wimmin/women (sexual, domestic or otherwise). We fully support survivors’ (of sexual assault and rape) autonomy. We demand all perpetrators adhere and cooperate to the fullest extent the procedures and demands of the survivors and the communities.

your white, EVICTION!

Hey, hey, not all APOCers were for the eviction thing, so don't hold it against all of them. But smellyskelly, you should know that they will probably find the presence of white people to be disruptive to their discussions and stuff, so you probably won't be welcomed in...

Holy shit... thank you so much for posting this... I knew there was a reason I had a gut feeling that I should head to Philly soon.

Your welcome! I figured there would be at least one STPer that wanted to go! I wish I could, the schedule sounds awesome.

I'm wondering how many people constitute APOC...

At that particular Summit... 8

It was kinda weird

More like a medical procedure than a summit

In any case, I ended up hanging out with an old Chaote friend of mine in Fishtown afterward... all in all, my weekend in Philly was on balance.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
