Along the lines of having an engaged practice, you may be interested in this call specifically looking for magicians and others as part of a coordinated day of action on February 29th sent me by Katherine Ball, an activist in Portland, OR:
Hello magicians, squatters, artists, journalists, poets, experimental geographers, inventors, bicycle healers, hactivists and resistance scholars,
I am writing to invite you to participate in a coordinated day of direct action to shut down corporations on February 29th: www.shutdownthecorporations.org. The corporations, which run our government, place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and domination over equality. In this justice, liberty and a livable future are casualties. This is a call for a national day of direct action to reclaim our voices and challenge our society’s obsession with profit and greed by shutting down the corporations.
There are over 50 cities across the United States planning to take direct action on this day (full list at bottom of this page), and as of this week Mexico City has also joined.
This email is a call out to creative individuals and groups to also take direct action on this day. Just imagine what an outpouring of creative actions could do! I have listed some of the groups/individuals receiving this email at the bottom.
If you are interested in participating and want to make your participation public, there is a form on the bottom of the contact page. If you prefer to keep your participation autonomous, I thank you and wish you the best of luck. If you cannot take direct action, if you could use your means to further these ends, I would greatly appreciate it (such as writing an article, sending the call to action out to your network, etc). Any action—small or large—in solidarity would be appreciated.
This call comes from the Action Lab, a spokescouncil in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Thank you for your time and your wonderful work in the world,
