Excited to join friends + fiends at this Spring Zine fair put on by @8ballcommunity and @printedmatter_stmarks.

Saturday, June 12, on St Marks Place b/w 1st and 2nd Ave.

In celebration of the grassroots reclamation of the Lower East Side’s unused space by gardeners, squatters, and artists—nearby community gardens will be hosting a variety of programs throughout the day, including composting workshops, a poetry reading, concerts, leaf pressings, and more! The fair guide will be in the form of an East Village Fanzine spotlighting local stories, businesses, and organizations.

There are moments in life when something so shocking, so seemingly impossible happens, that you forever remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard about it. For me, November 10th 1995 – exactly 20 years ago today – will always be one of those moments. I was standing in Rivers...

A sweet Brooklyn Squat I used to stay at. I'm not in the video though...
Been itching to talk about the novel. https://www.facebook.com/thesoapboxview/live/ The Show also includes reading my book review of ESTRANGED by Charles Lamar Phillips. An American Red Scare Era satire, published just this February by Regal House Publishing. SOME PERSPECTIVE NEVER HURT ANYONE
In NYC and other cities squatting buildings is going to be a possibility again because of the economic effects of Covid. Like it was in the past. Landlords will not be able to pay the taxes and the buildings will go over to the city and those buildings will be available to squat and the NYPD will not have the resources to get people out.
