Organizing in the days ahead: some events to look for

The Miami Workers Center will be having a Valentine's Day party/fundraiser at their office (6127 Northwest 7 Ave., Miami) Saturday at 7 p.m. The $5 cover supports this awesome community organization. Speaking of MWC, they had a cool forum last night about using love in organizing. Something Hashim said that really resonated with me: (I'm paraphrasing) Love "is not about tolerance; it's about solidarity and liberation." The proselytizers on the corner of 7 Ave. should have heard that.

There will be a demonstration against offshore oil drilling Saturday from 12:30 - 2 p.m. on the sand behind Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. Wear black and be prepared to join hands with other protesters.

If you weren't already aware, The Wallflower Gallery is looking for a new space and needs help in this process. If you are willing to get involved, go to their Organizational Meeting Monday at 7 p.m.
