Started last September in the radical Fernwood section of Victoria, British Columbia, Mad G’s is a collectively run lending library and meeting space that houses a dark room, a computer terminal (currently non-internet) and various radical groups.
Groups are an impressive array including; Forest Action Network, IWW, Food Not Bombs, Resist Corporate Rule, Camassia Society for Sustainable Living, Emma Goldman Play Group (a kids group that meets four times a week), and the Tenants Union. Free Skool classes have run the gamut from an informal post modern discussion group to massage workshops, bike repair, and self defense.
Mad G’s acts as a meeting place for the Fernwood, Victoria community and features a monthly Black Cat Café-open mic forum for rants and music and announcements of future actions, skits, and comedy. www.tao.ca/~resist (240) 386-0351 Open Monday-Saturday 12-4. 1921 Fernwood Road down the skinny ass back alley in Victoria, BC.
