dAnces with kittens

A group of youth activists associated with YCSC and troubled with growing authority by adult "allies"
(although we do have good ones like sandino!) and city linked laws and regulations are forming a
group that will devote itself to the ideas of protesting corporate monsters in santa cruz (we already
hit urban outfitters check indy media sc if its still there) DIY stuff, independant lifesyle stuff and for
the summer counter military highschool and college recruitment stuff.
We think we will call ourselves dAnces with kittens for the summer YCSC regulations will not be
on us so the meetings for this group will be 5-630 on tuesdays upstairs at resource center for
nonviolence all ages welcome but youth Under 26 especially highschool age will be very welcome
since thats what all of us so far are (also its imporatant for us cause we never saw this city before
the dot come boom and earthquake. after the summer ends the date will move as ycsc will take this
time please all members welcome it would be nice to have some college connections also so please
attend our meetings. So if you are interested in the future of corporate coming corporate santa cruz
building a more independant lifestyle and helping block military recruiters join santa cruz's youth
activists and build our future!!!!!!!

I'm glad that you all have decided to create your own space out of YCSC - I've had some experiences with them in the past and I definitely understand what you say when you have concerns about some of the adult 'allies'. Keep in mind that are are true allies, both older youth and adults in the area that are down to really support you.

How positive that young people are organizing to have a say to deal with a world they didnt create but inherited just the same.

I hope you have success
 

Re: Dances for Kittens: conscience consumerism, youth activism and DIY lifestyle

I'm curious to hear the background behind the name 'Dances with Kittens'. Or is it 'Dances for Kittens'?

How'd you come up with that name? What's the significance?
 

Re: Dances for Kittens: conscience consumerism, youth activism and DIY lifestyle

Dances with kittens is a name derived from one fateful day in central park. As my homie mary muhhamad and John zerzan discussed the beareucracy of international squatting laws imposed by the IMF after the 1998 Anarcho rennasciance incident they stumbled upon a redwood tree the image of golden fleece was rare in this densley populated industriial sprawl. Where we come from desert deforestation through industrial tourism was common and at the bottom of this mighty tree that had the words ross landind carved in it wass one special tee shirt it was grey and slightly rageedy green kittens danced in unity creating a vision that can only be described as anarcho futurism so this is the names origin
