(green) anarchist yellow pages

hmf. have you been to the Anarchist Yellow Pages lately? it is sadly out of date. i've used it to good effect before, but alas, when i first got to Ashville, looking for comrades, i hung out with squatters because the infoshop AYP promised had been closed for more than a year.

besides being outdated, look at the categories you must choose from when SUBMITTING a proposal to put your project on the AYP:

Alternative Media (Print / Internet)
Alternative Media (Radio / TV / Video)
Anarcha-Feminist / Anti-Sexist
Anarchist Black Cross
Anarchist Group
Anti-Capitalist / Global Action
Anti-Fascist Group
Archive / Library
Community Space / Social Center
Food Not Bombs
Industrial Workers of the World
Infoshop / Bookstore
International of Anarchist Federations
International Workers Association
Libertarian Marxist / Ultra Left
Libertarian Publication
Libertarian Web Site Project
Publisher / Distributor / Mail Order
Social Ecologists
Syndicalist Union / Group

conspicuously absent is any mention of anarchist people of color, rewilders, Earth First!, autonomous technology developers. what about what about what about?! you can be a social ecologist, but not a deep ecologist.

how can we improve this noble effort at spreading the good word? your thoughts, please.

Its the nature of such a splintered collective is it not? Hell, using the word collective is enough of a stretch as very few of us can agree on organization after anti-civ.
