    The Commitment of this workshop is for you to discover new ways to look at yourself, the world including your past and present circumstances. By seeing these things in a new light your past will no longer dictate to you how you feel and limit what actions you can take.

    You may experience memories about what happened to you and / or others. If you are unwilling to experience the emotions, feelings, body sensations and thoughts that may come up in these discussions, you should discuss this with us prior to the workshop.

    If you have attempted suicide in the past 12 months, currently experiencing severe depression or are taking any psychotropic drugs (those that affect the mind, emotions or behavior) you should consider talking to your mental health professional before attending this workshop.

    You and you alone are responsible for your well-being!

    For our Veterans and Families and at no cost. Pre-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by emailing rod.wittmier@na2evs.org for the workshop Agreement.

    PCC: May 1 Student Walkout Against the Trump Agenda

    Schedule: 12:00pm - Walk out of class and rally outside, between the student union and Cascade Hall 1:00pm - March to the yellow line and ride downtown together to join the citywide march at Shemanski Park.

    Never has it been more obvious that we cannot allow "business as usual" to continue while workers, immigrants, women, and all poor and oppressed people are under vicious attack by the government's right-wing agenda. A wave of student walkouts across the country on May 1, International Workers Day, will send a clear message to Trump, the billionaire class, and the Republican Party that we reject their agenda of bigotry, hate, and division; that we reject their corporate policies of gutting social services and education. Already we have seen the beginning of a mass fightback against Trump, with hundreds of thousands pouring into the streets after the election. But we can’t stop there. More will be needed to stand up and fight back against the onslaught of right-wing hate and corporate greed.

    Join with Socialist Students in walking out and protesting on May 1 to demand:

    • No Deportations, No Ban, No Wall! Defend Immigrants on Campus!
    • No Tuition Hikes - Free College for All!
    • Black Lives Matter - End Police Brutality & Mass Incarceration!
    • For Living-Wage Union Jobs - $15/hr for All Campus Workers!
    • Stop the GOP Assault on Healthcare - Free Comprehensive Coverage for All!
    • Defend Planned Parenthood - For Universal Access to Abortions & Reproductive Care!
    • No New Pipelines, No EPA Cuts - Fight Climate Change with Green Jobs and Renewable Energy!


  • Mayday Danceout sponsored by the Ant!

    Mayday has, for centuries, been a celebration of Spring. Dancing around the May Pole has a history which some scholars believe goes back all the way to the Iron Age. It is a joyous moment, a reminder that we have survived the worst of winter, and came out the other side with Life bursting forth all around us.

    Then, in the late 1800s, an international coalition of anarchist, communist, and socialist organizations declared Mayday as International Workers Day, in honor of the Haymarket Affair when labor organizers in Chicago were arrested and martyred by the State. Ever since then, Mayday has been a day for rallies, protests, marches, etc, where students, workers, and all of the oppressed show our collective power by taking to the streets.

    This year, Immigrants Rights organizations are calling for a Day Without Immigrants. Workers organizations are calling for a general strike. College and University organizations are calling for a walkout.

    At ANT Club, we wish to join in this moment to show this school, this city, and this country just how powerful we could be if we united. We acknowledge the word "walkout" to be ableist, and we also wish to unite these historical definitions of Mayday. As such, we are calling for a Danceout. Because dancing is something done with the soul, not the body.

    Join us as we celebrate the beginning of the end of the Winter which began in November, when so many of us saw how far our country was truly gone.

    Join us as we celebrate the first saplings of resistance, bursting forth from the earth.

    Join us as we dance for a new world.

    We leave our classes at 12pm. Socialist Alternative is also calling for a walkout at the same time, and we wish to respect their speakers and rally, in the interest of solidarity. At 1pm, we will dance march our way to the Yellow Line Max in order to join the main Mayday celebrations at Shemanski Park. There will be two rallies/marches downtown, a permitted one and an anti-capitalist unpermitted one. We at ANT club encourage everyone to choose the march they are most comfortable with, and are not involved with either march directly.
