Welcome to Decentral Command. This page will be kept up to date with ongoing workshops, training and other events organised by fans of the Houston Spies.
Blaseball is a game about collective action and organising together. The Blaseball fandom has been engaged in this from its inception- from creating amazing art and music to organising charity events and physical merchandise. We are here to learn together how to apply these to our offline lives and improve our material conditions.
We hope that our actions show the positive motivating power of online communities and fandoms, and will inspire others to organise collectively.
The Houston Spies union organising training. Based on the IWW’s Your Job Your Union training, this 5-hour crash course covers the basics of getting started in union organising. We have run two of these so far to great success.
If you or anyone you know would like advice on organising your workplace, contact your local Industrial Workers of the World branch here.
Our next is scheduled for 1800 UTC on 10th April 2021.
Join if you would like to learn:
- How to begin the process of organising your workplace by creating a map of the social and physical layout.
- How to talk to your co-workers.
