The show in 40 words: It’s TMI time with Cali & Emily! Prepare for a musical ride through the many stages of life and shades of love– requited, unrequited, gay, straight, queer, or, well, just “creative.” WARNING: Contains wonderfully, hilariously, poignantly, adult material.

The show is approximately 60-75 minutes long.

Anarcho-Rednecks Against Oppression is a new organization based in Central Virginia, and one of the first projects of the group is to begin tabling at gun shows.

Our goals are to introduce a more diy, class struggle, and anti-oppression perspective to the culture at gun shows, and create opportunities for folks who may have never been exposed to anarchist ideas to hear about them and pick up some relevant literature. We hope that instead of dismissing people who aren’t on the exact same page we are on, we can meet them on our common ground, and through conversation and literature help folks step away from reactionary and racist perspectives and more into being self-thinking individuals.

We aren’t the first anarchists to attempt to reach out in this way, some of our predecessors include the John Brown Gun Club in Kansas and Redneck Revolt in Denver. We would love to hear from anyone who has been involved in these groups, intervened with tea party types, has their own insights about gun shows, etc.

Some topics we are looking for relevant literature on:

Know Your Rights

Copwatch

Security Culture

Anti-Racism

Queerness

Guns (duh?)

DIY stuff that folks at gun shows might be into

If any anarchists or radicals have zines, pamphlets or literature for us to distribute that you can mail us for free to help the cause, titles to recommend, or documents to email us, we would really appreciate it. We hope to develop a lot of original literature over time, but it always helps to not have to reinvent the wheel.

You can mail items to: ARAO c/o Wingnut 2005 Barton Avenue Richmond, VA 23222

or email mokarnage @ gmail.com

 

Our first gunshow will be the C & E Gun Show in Richmond on August 23-24 so if you can, please get any materials to us before then.

BIZARRO ACROSS AMERICA!
In September 2014, the writers, artists and co-conspirators of BIZARRO are coming to freak you out!
BIZARRO FICTION is a fast-growing underground genre of high weirdness, with over 200 titles in print from ERASERHEAD PRESS, RAW DOG SCREAMING, BIZARRO PULP PRESS and more.  It’s been described as “the literary equivalent of the Cult section of your video store, back when there were video stores.”  This fall, Bizarros across America are joining together for a progressive book-crawl of the East Coast!
FEATURING readings, performance and odd behavior from some combination of:
MYKLE HANSEN — author of “I, SLUTBOT” and “HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!”
VIOLET LEVOIT — author of “I AM GENGHIS CUM”
BRADLEY SANDS — author of “RICO SLADE WILL FUCKING KILL YOU”
CHRIS GENUA — author of “FOOP!” and “LICK YOUR NEIGHBOR”
WILLIAM PAULEY III — author of “THE BROTHERS CRUNK”

Wingnut member Mo Karnage is one of the speakers heading to Alt Expo, and they are trying to raise the necessary funds to make this a rad event! If you can please donate at the link below:

The address of the Mayor of Richmond’s top secret bat cave was revealed by the Wingnut Anarchist Collective in a scathing online post, encouraging writing of letters, legal protests and explicitly discouraging illegal actions.

Richmond Police have responded to the imminent threat of letters and demonstrations by increasing their rounds near the Mayor’s house tonight. Apparently the 400,000 dollars spent annually to protect the Mayor is not enough to combat the potential guilt or discomfort he might feel if being called out for his actions to privatize Monroe Park and put at further risk some of Richmond’s most vulnerable citizens.

The secret location of the Mayor’s Bat Cave, which the Occupy RVA movement camped out next to in 2011, was deviously discovered by the Wingnuts on the City of Richmond’s own website. As it turns out, public officials are public, and indeed that info is public knowledge. http://eservices.ci.richmond.va.us/applic…/propertysearch/

Members of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective are meanwhile enjoying cookies in bed and mixing beats on the rainy evening. Most likely in a highly threatening manner… like chewing with their mouths open. The arrival of news crews  to talk about this imminent threat disrupted the malicious naps of their adorable dogs.

If we didn’t know better it would seem as though the Richmond Police Department was wasting time and money to try and manufacture a threat that does not exist, and distract the public from information regarding the bad neoliberal practices that the Mayor and City Council are pushing forward.
