Anarchists on the peninsula

All the pretty young anarchists came to our little town

On the move again the Fair Wage Folks were on the Samoa Peninsula to raise awareness at the Anarchist Book Fair. The fifth year was a Rabble Rousing success.

Talking to the community about the need for fair wages and decent working conditions was just a part of the day. Workshops were given on a variety of topics from vertical gardening to rebuilding after a natural disaster.

A diverse group of people came out to read, learn and share some pretty awesome food. Humboldt Grassroots, Redwood Curtain Copwatch, Food Not Bombs, the Raven Project and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to name a few. The Eureka Fair Wage Act shared a table with Redwood Curtain Copwatch and collected signatures and handed out literature. We were inviting the creative folks in the crowd to try their hands at designing our new graphic in a contest we are sponsoring.
Look for us at the Labor Temple on December 15th from noon to 5 for the First Fair Wage Cafe. Another community building event put on by local labor supporters and the Fair Wage Folks.
