Fluidity, thanks so much for posting this. I got the announcement a while back and almost forgot about it. It is actually a really exciting tour that prioritizes going places in the south often missed on such tours. (earlier postings had rumors of a tour through the mid-west as well)

Firestorm Cafe & Books, our new worker owned hub of activist activity is really fulfilling a great community need since the loss of the ACRC a few years back. There is always something going on there and the space is friendly, accepting and comfortable...

Folks all around should check out the grassroots media tour links Fluidity posted and make sure to pass it along to others out there who may wish to be a part of it.
