62 Fieldgate Street,
At the last meeting, we sorted out such things as the broken toilet, the broken window, key access, as well as discussing how to get space users more involved in the upkeep of the building. We decided on opening the space on a regular Friday night for socialising purposes and will work on getting that disco ball up and running.
Then we f*cked off to the pub for some subversive chat over pints of ale and crisps. All in all, a right laugh!
So come get involved and help inject your enthusiasm and ideas into London's permanent, autonomously organised resource space.

REGULAR ANNOUNCEMENT INFO:
This event is a regular meeting reminder for all the many people and groups out there that use LARC (or want to become involved in the space) to discuss and plan the running of the place we all know and love to depend on: the London Action Resource Center.
For the past decade, LARC has been a useful resource in the growing struggle against capitalism, centralised power, environmental destruction and war... and a shared tool on the way to creating a truly free and ecological community...
And so too will it be for the next decade - So come get involved and help LARC be all it can be, in aiding in the struggle! Bring your ideas and energy to the agenda... Meetings start promptly at 7:30pm and end by 9pm.
See you there!
HELPING LARC KEEP ON KEEPING ON:
For 10 years, the London Action Resource Centre (aka LARC) has been a building where groups and individuals favouring positive social and ecological change have been able to meet, make banners, stuff the latest agitprop in a pocket, watch films, grow food, listen to fine politicised acoustic tunes, to read and to drink tea. We bought the place, converted it and now run it according the heartfelt principles of leaderless, consensual decision-making and a belief that the only lasting solutions to the current (and time-old) capitalistic madness are the ones that come from the bottom up.
Beautiful, inspired squatted spaces have come and gone, but LARC has the potential to provide long-term support for London's direct action movements, and to help provide a public space for them. So far, although much could be improved, it's gone pretty well. In 2009 though, we have lost a few key people from the small group that keeps the bills paid and the tea bags in abundance, and we're putting out the call for those groups and individuals who have used or currently use the space to see if they're able to put a little more time in at the engine room of the project, in order for it to carry on doing what it does best, and maybe even help to do it better. It's also time to see if there are new users out there who might be able to spare some time.
So one step towards reestablishing a strong group at LARC's core is December's monthly meeting, which will run from 7-9pm, after which we'll eat some food or head to the pub. It's open to anyone, and attending is not a commitment to taking anything on. For your interest, here are some of the jobs we're looking for help with:
- checking LARC emails
- general DIY around the building
- making publicity materials
If you can't get to the meeting, but might be up for helping with one of these roles, email firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and take care,
LARC, 62 Fieldgate Street, London E1 1ES.
