WHY?

Past and present, radical and anarchist spaces within Portland have established with extensive intentions and for better or worse, evolved into primarily functioning with a specific purpose  such as an all-ages venue or a free store. While we believe these things to be important, even essential, we are focusing on maintaining our collective and space to be flexible, transparent and intend on  having a multi-purpose space in North or Northeast Portland. We will be under the umbrella of a local non-profit which will allow us to regularly apply for grants to maintain our financial stability and offer an updated, extensive lending library, which will include fresh, revolving literature for sale. We intend to offer more than just free use of computers, we will focus our financial resources on purchasing equipment that can be used for various projects. As well, depending on our neighborhood we will focus on addressing the needs of our immediate community and this will, in some ways, shape how we function and operate. This practice has been admirably used by the Red and Black Cafe, wherein they have purposed themselves as more than just a cafe, but also as an all ages venue as well as a safer place for the houseless population within their neighborhood. Our hope is to present our space as it reflects our politics, but also as an inclusive place where people of all backgrounds and identities can feel comfortable, safe and engaged.

Your donations are essential in securing a physical space, which will include at least six months rent to ensure stability, as well as start-up costs such as paint and bookshelves, initial stock (zines, books, etc) as well as resources like computers, a projector, industrial coffee maker, and other art supplies and equipment.

About the collective:

From 1895-1807, The Firebrand existed as an anarchist newspaper started by a family of farmers in Portland, Oregon. Along with serving as a radical hub of the West Coast they promoted civil disobedience, free love and women’s rights. As the newly formed Firebrand Collective we hope to pay homage to our political ancestors and keep the candles lit with our passion for freedom, equality, art and education.

The Firebrand Collective is working on opening a radical hub in North or Northeast Portland. The space is intended to serve as an inclusive social and political multi-use center, available for people living in the city to utilize for their projects and needs. This will also function as an archival library for music, radical literature, and information about resources in the city.

In addition to being a physical location for groups to meet and for access to information, this new radical hub will also be an all-ages music venue, event space, and social center. The Firebrand Collective strives to maintain a political atmosphere that stands in opposition to capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, and other systems of oppression and hierarchy. The Firebrand Collective aims to create a space that meets the needs of our community while also focusing on the needs of those most affected by systemic violence.

I’ll be in these places over the summer doing merch for Ramshackle Glory: Bloomington, Chicago, Detroit, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Albany, Portland, Brattleboro, Worcester, Boston, Providence, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Richmond, Durham, Greensboro and New Orleans.

Anyone in these places have any suggestions for vegan spots, anarchist infoshops, radical community centers, etc?

punk fashion tips for summer 2014

1. black sprayable truck bed liner. spray all your shorts, jean jackets, etc. for a gross, thick, almost-water proof shiny black. for hardware store fashion-enthusiasts.

2. handcuffs. clip your handcuffs on your hip belt loops. for arresting cops that wanna ruin your summer fun.

3. black sleeveless turtleneck. listen to parálisis permanente and have a goth punk summer.

4. fingerless neon yellow mesh gloves. essential.

5. wear a black trash bag. chic.

Punk Brunch.

My best friend forever, since early elementary school. We visited Oregon City to ride the Municipal elevator (the only one operating in the US.) This was a couple of days before they moved away from Portland to seek adventure and love in new cities. I’ll be seeing them come July deep down in the dirty, sweaty Southern states…

Dead Horse Bay in Brooklyn. Thousands of bottles in various sizes and shapes stretch across the shore from an old bottling plant. Taken last summer with two mega babes - Jake and Monica. Miss them dearly.

Punk Brunch is an “illegal cafe” run by punks at their respective punk houses. It is always a benefit for something. The food is stolen, purchased on EBT, donated or dumpstered. It’s always sliding scale and no one is ever turned away for lack of cash. The 9th consecutive month is at “The PLⒶCENTER” and the theme is ‘southern comfort’ ; vegan biscuits and gravy, slow cooked greens, grits, sassafras sweet tea, and more… It’s a benefit for “The Firebrand Collective” and their efforts in finding a location for the new all age’s space and radical, inclusive community space that will be located in North Portland.
