’PROJECTILE’ 28th of March - 5th of April
Projectile - is the autonomous anti-NATO summit in Bucharest / Romania. The happening is organized and held on the basis of self-organization, horizontal relations, mutual respect and responsibility. An organizational group is engaged in the preparation (search of the place, partial provision of the necessary facilities, spreading the information, raising soli money). However, nothing will work, if everybody at the gathering will not help to get food at the markets, organize work at the kitchen, cook, tidy up, clean the place after the end and so on. The main languages are Romanian and English. Everybody is encouraged to help organize necessary translation.
MAIN PRINCIPLES OF PARTICIPATION
We are against all kinds of discrimination. Therefore, to make this gathering come true and to make all the participants feel comfortable we recommend the following rules:
Respect other people’s personal space and opinions, even though they are not the same as yours, and do not create troublesome conditions for other participants.
Think about your boundaries and respect other people’s. Violence as well as abusive or aggressive behaviour towards others at the gathering will not be tolerated.
In our society, words have a lot of influence. There are plenty of words people demean each other with: chick, pussy, cunt, fag, dyke, slut, whore/kurva, gypsie ... . It seems like paying attention to your terminology should go without saying, but it’s not. Refuse to use offensive language or words. Oppressive language is banned at the gathering.
Restrict consumption of alcohol and soft drugs during the summit as much as possible, as well as during the events outside, because it can cause negative consequences
for people around you, for the summit in general and for you personally.
We strongly ask you not to bring hard drugs of any kind.
We reject the master/servant dichotomy. We take matters into our own hands. We arrange the relationships among ourselves in another way than what suggests the social normality. We battle against categories like ’gender’ or ’nation’. We develop our own norms. Or, at least we will try that. So be open for a change.
People deliberately creating troublesome conditions and/or putting the existence of the summit under threat, will be kicked out!!!
Since we don’t have enough finances to provide the summit completely, we need to ask for a soli contribution for food and electricity.
The summit takes place from the 28th of March till the 5th of April. During these days there is the possibility of sleeping and eating at the place. According to your stay we ask you to consider 1 euro for soli contribution per day.
If everything goes well, there will be a secure place in the centre of Bucharest. There will be space for meetings, workshops, library, distro’s and so on, as well as enough place to sleep. Toilets and electricity is in existence. Shower, provisional kitchen, and spaces for gatherings are assumed to be built.
As no heating is currently in existence, bring your ideas for alternative heating in or warm clothing/sleeping bag.
There is also space for wagons or busses.
If necessary, an unmixed space for women or groups with a certain requests could be arranged.
There will be a place for distribution and library. So take your distro’s with you!
We ask you to bring with you at least:
a sleeping bag
a plate, a cup, a spoon, a knife etc.
personal first-aid set
if you’re going to arrange a workshop, try to take everything you need with you.
How to organise meetings, workshops and discussions will be entirely up to us. We will find out during the summit how much structure is needed. A possibility could be a general meeting every morning.
In the beginning a general meeting will be held, in order to organize the necessary tasks (organizing food, cooking, cleaning), the list and timetable of seminars, workshops, movie projections, actions and so on.
All the decisions will be accepted on the basis of consensus by all participants.
We will try to provide the necessary equipment for cooking. We will not use any products of animal origin. But it does not mean that we cook for you, rather the whole life-support will depend on participation of everybody.
We don’t want to work and study only, but also to plan actions during the NATO summit (2nd till 4th of April) and have some fun. So we’re open to your suggestions and plan’s how to reach this.
The exact place and how to get there you will receive at your personal request by mail.
In any case you will need to reach Bucharest and then go accordingly to the information received at your e-mail.
