Our collective is committed to a non-sexist, non-racist environment, free from harassment, bigotry, and discrimination of all kinds.
We support the un-extinguished sovereignty of Indigenous Peoples over the land we occupy (Coast Salish Territory), and over all of what is now called ‘British Columbia’.
We support a woman’s right to choose, and oppose patriarchy and misogyny in its every manifestation.
We are committed to an active solidarity with those incarcerated or otherwise shackled by the state, and believe in the final abolition of all prisons.
We support the active liberation of all people from poverty, and believe that only by creating true social and economic equality can this be achieved.
We believe that everyone is equal regardless of where they were born, even if they are considered immigrants by the state, and that no one is illegal.
We oppose all imperialist war, and every attempt to impose outside controls and manipulations on people’s freedom to determine their own destinies.
We are opposed to the systemic ecological devastation caused by western civilization, and especially capitalism, which is fuelled by a deeply held human centered world view.
To promote anti-authoritarian and non-hierarchical beliefs and practices through the distribution of radical publications and politically inspired artwork (clothing, crafts, DVD’s, posters, etc…) and by providing a space for like minded groups to organize and meet in.
To promote critical analysis of and advocate for, alternatives to the exploitative natures and practices of capitalism, colonialism, imperialism and all other forms of exploitation.
To practice and actively encourage socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable behaviour within all aspects of our work and everyday lives.

We support the liberation of all people victimized by our society, be it due to their age, ability, class, race, gender or sexual preference. Human diversity must be respected and cherished, not suppressed.
We see our venue as a powerful tool for social transformation, community building, exercising control over local economies, and as key in assisting and supporting the ongoing development of work for radical alternatives and systemic change.
We operate in a non-hierarchical way, utilizing consensus and egalitarian methods of organization, thought and action.
We strive to create a space that is inclusive, that celebrates and respects all
To raise awareness that our current way of life is unsustainable and to support and engage in projects and activities that foster long term survival and
connection within our bio-region, such as permaculture, food sovereignty,
resource autonomy, sustainable agriculture, and re-wilding.
