The Austin Beloved Community is inviting all working class poets, musicians, artists, organizers, activists, and friends to join together on May 1 for a May Day pot-luck party at Resistencia Books’ new location in East Austin. The event will celebrate International Workers Day and officially launch Austin Beloved Community – a website for Austin social justice organizations, artists, and activists to share collective memory and community organizing.

Resistencia has always provided a space for activists to compare notes in an atmosphere of camaraderie.
This should be a very good event.
The new Resistencia location is wonderful, bringing the space back to the East Side, with a lovely outdoor space. The grand re-opening last Friday evening (4/11) was great; SRO inside to hear the featured poet, with music and a cleansing-blessing ceremony outside led by Susana Almanza of PODER (Resistencia’s neighbor now at the new compound). I’m definitely looking forward to the May Day event!
