Good friend mine and gnarly artist Kelly (Creative Chaos) makes coasters for sale. That’s right, you can stop letting your 40 sweat on the table and stop stealing coasters from the Goodwill that probably has your picture on the front door from when ya stole the table. You can do the punk thing and support a DIY artist. And No, this isn’t some hipster trash. Proceeds go to pay life expenses and benefit mental health recovery. Links and pics of these dope table savers below.
If you run a website or blog or any sort of FB page that talks about DIY spaces that would be the kind that is at risk of being shut down (THIS INCLUDES YOUR PERSONAL FB i’m looking at all my fb friends rn), please turn all settings to private or even go into black out mode. There is a thread on 4chan filled with anonymous neo nazis looking to expose and turn in DIY spaces to fire marshals.
In the wake of the Oakland fire, assess and repair DIY spaces to prevent another tragedy; do not allow neo nazis to use the state to target the spaces. THE THREAD ON 4CHAN IS TITLED “REPORT ALL “ARTSPACES” AND ILLEGAL VENUES TO CRUSH THE RADICAL LEFT.” I didn’t write this but it’s probably not a good idea to press share, copy and paste if you have friends who should read this.
Stay safe guys. Protect what is dear to you and keep each other informed.
