This Tuesday LAQR will be facilitating our Consent & Queer Body workshop @ Lib School :) :) :) :) :D

Not familiar w Lib School?

"The Liberation School of Los Angeles is an autonomous collective of anti-capitalists (students, teachers, and working-class people) that holds ongoing classes and one-time events that connect us and inform our struggles against racist heteropatriarchal class society. Class topics have included: Gentrification, Proletarian Literature, Gardening, and Community Organizing. We’ve hosted open mics and creative writing seminars. We hope to host a summit of Southern California Cop Watch projects, a legal aid workshop and GED prep courses among other dream events and courses. We also aim to learn to share the labor of teaching, learning, providing childcare and Spanish language translation, and keeping our space organized and our project running smoothly."

Awesome, right? We’re so glad to be facilitating our workshop there!

Address: 3201 Maple Ave, LA

**TOMORROW**

laqrcollective:

Tired of living in a culture of nonconsent and gender oppression/repression that reinforces street harassment?!! It feels as though the amount of self-entitlement that, mainly cis/het men, have over spaces and fem bodies in particular is escalating.

Saturday September 13th LAQR will be doing our Gender Violence and Transfeminist Revolt! workshop at the Echo Chamber Creative Headquarters where we’ll discuss systemic/intersectional analyses in terms of descriptive/political categories regarding violence faced within and out Femme and Queer/Trans communtiies and express ways in which we can collectively #REVOLT against our social conditions.

This will be follwed by a Direct Action Against Street Harassment planning meeting to discuss and plan a one time event on LA public transit systems that could turn into a monthly occurance depending on the outcome of the action.(LET’S fEMUP THE TRAINS Y’ALL!)

For folx who are so over feeling like you have to change how you dress or how approachable you are for the sake of protection, let’s do something about it! LAQR is inviting groups, collectives and orgs to come to a strategy/ planning meeting to take the actions to the streets.

We will discuss ways in which we can oppose harassment that womyn, LGBTQIA2S+ folx, and anyone whose body is often in danger under patriarchal culture, face. Let’s begin to dialogue about changing the culture with public art campaigns, spreading anti street harassment literature and stickers, taking surveys of womyn and LGBTQIA2S+ folx to see if those most marginalized under the patriarchy can or will turn to their neighbors or the cops, and share skills/ tactics. These are just a few ideas shared we can use to de-escalate, eradicate, or change this behavior that enculturates us into fear.

Allies/Accomplices welcome if you can LISTEN & HEAR more than you can speak & tell

We will have zines available and will be accepting donations for legal defense in the Echo Chamber space for every event for comrades who met with racist vigilanteism and police violence. See info here:

Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

Rafah-born author and poet Khaled Juma wrote a heartbreaking tribute to the children of the Gaza Strip amidst the missiles striking his hometown. At least 506 Palestinian children have been killed since Israel commenced its latest invasion of Gaza on July 8, 2014

Photograph #1: A Palestinian boy, who fled with his family from their home during Israeli air strikes, bathes his brother at a United Nations-run school in the Jabalya Refugee Camp in the northern Gaza Strip on July 31, 2014. The school is a designated shelter for Palestinians who were displaced by Israel’s offensive. Photo credit: Mohammed Salem

Photograph #2: A Palestinian girl reacts at the scene of an explosion carried out by the Israeli military that killed at least eight children and wounded 40 more in a public garden in Gaza City on July 28, 2014. Photo credit: Finbarr O’Reilly

Photograph #3: A traumatized Palestinian child is comforted by a man arranging care for him in a hospital in Gaza City following an Israeli air strike on July 9, 2014. Photo credit: Momen Faiz

Photograph #4: A Palestinian child pulls out toys from a box at a local market in Gaza City during a temporary ceasefire on August 6, 2014. Palestinian and Israeli delegations met in Cairo with Hamas demanding an end to the siege on Gaza and Israel demanding a demilitarization of the territory. Photo credit: Lefteris Pitarakis

Photograph #5: A Palestinian boy sleeps at a United Nations-run school in Gaza City on July 14, 2014, after fleeing with his family from their home in Beit Lahya. Photo credit: Mohammed Salem

Photograph #6: Doctors tend to injured children while a young girl sitting on her mother’s lap cries at a hospital in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip on August 4, 2014. Photo credit: Eyad El Baba

Photograph #8: Two Palestinians girls celebrate the first day of Eid Al-Fitr on the grounds of a United Nations school in the Jabalya Refugee Camp in the northern Gaza Strip on July 28, 2014. Their families are among the dozens that have fled their homes and sought refuge in the school. Normally, Muslim families in Palestine celebrate Eid Al-Fitr by visiting one another and gifting children with new clothes and shoes. Photo credit: Khalil Hamra

Photograph #9: One-and-a-half year old Razel Netzlream was killed after she was fatally hit by shrapnel from an Israeli air strike on an adjacent home the previous day. Her father carries her body to the funeral in Khan Younis on July 18, 2014. Photo credit: Alessio Romenzi

Photograph 10: A portrait of Shahed Quishta, 8, is fixed to a pillar in her home in Beit Lahya on August 16, 2014, after an Israeli tank fired a shell into the living room. She was killed on July 22, 2014. Photo credit: Khalil Hamra
