pReNC 2007: Beat the Republicans to the Punch!

!!BEAT THE REPUBLICANS TO THE PUNCH!!

In case you haven't heard, the stage is already being set for the republicans visit in 2008. August 31st through September 3rd of 2007 (that's L@bor day weekend for all of you making big BBQ plans) will be the Twin Cities' pReNC. We want you to come, have fun, learn, plan, and share with us. You can get to know our cities, see all the great stuff we have going on, and take part in planning for the main event in 2008.

Don't wait for the pReNC, however. Start thinking about what you want to see NOW and come with ideas to work with. We are putting up ride and housing boards soon. They will be linked off our website with a lot of other good stuff.

Below is an agenda. We have a weekend of events planned, but we still want you to teach a workshop or organize an event. We have some ideas of the sort of things we want, but if you have something special please let us know and we will do what we can to make it happen. Some of our ideas include: Un-arresting/ Street tactics, Gas masks, Medic training, Self defense training, Protest 101, Know your rights, DIY riot gear, Squatting basics, Urban gardens, etc. We will also set aside space for guerrilla workshops during the weekend.

!!THIS TIME THE REVOLUTION'S GETTING AN EARLY START!!

All events are free unless otherwise noted. We are committed to providing child care to the best of our ability. Please RSVP to pReNC (at) riseup.net to let us know how many children, their ages, and any special requirements. Here is some of what we have planned so far:
