War, Peace, and Wikileaks
A multimedia analysis/talks by Chris Hables Gray, followed by discussion

MUSIC (8:00 to 9:00 p.m. & 10:00 to 11:00 p.m.):

Ryan Harvey (on tour from Baltimore, MD)

Ryan is a Riot-Folk collective member and an organizer with the antiwar Civilian-Soldier Alliance. His songs blend music and activism. He is currently touring to promote his new album, Blowback, his tenth or eleventh CD (he’s not sure). Either way, his music has had an impact as part of many movements for radical change through the last decade.

Nomi

Nomi is a songwriter from New Orleans currently living in San Francisco. “She has a voice and folk songs with an uncanny depth that can tear u apart, and knit you back together again.”

Snack Time (w/Adhamh Roland of Riot-Folk)

Sugar Hill (banjo, violin, and vocals) and Adhamh Roland (accordian, guitar, and vocals), like peanut butter and chocolate, bring you a harmonious and delicious treat in their vocal and musical ensemble, Snack Time (peanut allergies aside). With more than just tasteful outfits, Snack Time will give you something to chew on, whether it be a touch candy coating or a soft, tender filling.

2/8 Critical Mass & Radical Politics

Tuesday, February 8 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Critical Mass & Radical Politics

Critical Mass is a movement with no leaders or formal organization behind it. No one in charge — which is another way of saying “everyone is in charge!” There are as many ideas about what Critical Mass is as there are participants.

Given that fact, there are — and should be — competing visions of what Critical Mass is about. Is Critical Mass a protest whose purpose is to gum up motorized traffic and make things difficult for anyone in a car? Or is Critical Mass a celebration of bike culture that changes the rules of ordinary life by opening up public space to public participation? Should Critical Mass be led spontaneously by the loudest voices at the front of the ride? Or should it follow a route from time to time, as it did in its first few years? Is Critical Mass about staying downtown, where traffic is densest? Or can it also be about exploring other neighborhoods and vistas?

Come to this forum to discuss these and other competing visions of what Critical Mass is and can become. Bring your ideas, bring your open ears and minds.

Chris Carlsson, Hugh D’Andrade, and others will faciitate this conversation.

Free, but donations toward sustaining Station 40 as a community space are welcome!
