*The Antelope Valley is located at the Northern tip of Los Angeles County
**The Antelope Valley Radical Network is having their first meeting at Marie Kerr Park in Westside Palmdale at 2PM on Sunday, February the 6th
The Antelope Valley Radical Network is made up of groups and individuals actively engaged in creating a healthier and more sustainable Antelope Valley, based on the principles of autonomy, self organization, and mutual aid. The purpose of this network is for local projects to find common ground and to work together against the overall problems, which are threatening our community. From poverty to police brutality, urbanization to unemployment, the problems are rampant, yet we will work to defend our communities from this ongoing repression.
AVRN was formed as a result of various revolutionary and radically-based groups and/or individuals throughout the Antelope Valley, finding themselves disconnected or disinterested, based on no concrete structure or organization to dedicate their time to. History has shown us that when we are united, we can form the most penetrating and complete analysis of the community we live in, as well as the most promising and realistic vision for changing it.
We are against any Patriarchal, Racist, Authoritarian, or Imperialist institution. We are non hierarchical and have no formal leadership. We run on a consensus-based decision making process, which gives every member of the network an equal voice.
Our goal is to create a consciousness of the injustices and inequality within our communities, as well as around the world, through educational means. We actively struggle against exploitation and coercion, in its various forms. We strive for an independent, self managed community here in the Antelope Valley.
