Anne announces an Anarchist Theory and Action Skill Share Series: "All are welcome to participate in one or more of these workshops. Each workshop will be participatory and accessible to people of many differing levels of experience with these topics." A big list of the workshops is here: Link Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 at Stone Soup in the Free School room.

If you are interested in attending this workshop series please email so that you can be added to the list to receive readings and information about the workshops.

It's time to clean up Worcester! We, the undersigned, support taking used syringes off our streets and out of our parks and playgrounds with safe disposal boxes for syringes, as proposed by the Worcester Board of Health's Operation Yellow Box. Safe syringe disposal will protect the public health and safety of all Worcester residents. Currently, without safe syringe disposal measures, used syringes are found littering city parks, streets, and trash bags. They put children, pets, and adults who use city parks and sidewalks and trash disposal workers at risk of injury and infection from needlesticks. Operation Yellow Box will make our streets and parks safer.
