Please join Crustacean Zine Library, The Oh Shit! What Now? Collective, Raising Resisters, and other comrades for a Sunday Potluck Picnic and Pool Party at Brentwood Park in Austin, TX.

Bring picnic-appropriate food and games, pool toys, supplies for making protest signs, and swimsuits. We will enjoy the commons and each others’ company while discussing safety strategies and diverse tactics for confronting white supremacist violence in our communities, as well as how we can support Occupy ICE in San Antonio and/or confront ICE activities in Austin.

This event is kid-friendly. There is a playground at the park, and the pool is free. Families welcome!

We are looking forward to seeing you there.

The Crustacean Zine Library is a reading room and gathering space for folks who love zines and independent media. For more information, visit (our horribly out-of-date website): https://crustaceanzinelibrary.com/
