FTP Studies: FUCK THE PIPELINES: Freedom for Fidencio Aldama and land defenders across the world!

cw- video displays flashing lights and loud sounds.

This FTP studies combines the Luna Ride with a short video about Political Prisoner Fidencio Aldama of the Yaqui tribe in Sonora (so called Mexico) who was wrongly convicted of murder for his organizing work against the Sempra Energy pipeline.

For as long as these nations and prisons exist on stolen land, we will fight to unite land struggles throughout Turtle Island and join in echoing the calls for solidarity with political prisoners worldwide especially those most affected by American imperialism and neo-liberalism.

How we choose to answer their calling within the belly of the beast is on each and every one of us. FARCE of July reminds us that there is nothing to celebrate about an empire that was built on stolen land, genocide, and slavery. We have no interest in being part of a system that is violent and genocidal. Let’s dismantle it and build something new!

What does it mean to be a Psyco?


It means giving our palabra, our word, to have our feet firmly planted on our pedals with mad heart for our sisters, our hood, our people and with our spirit always rebellious.

Las OVAS, any and all chapters, must align with our 13 Principles of Struggle.


If there’s any questions you would like to ask Active Core members please email us: ovarian.psycos@gmail.com/ovaspsyco@gmail.com


C-Mass No More


It’s not C-Mass, It’s Negra Misa!! We’re still having our annual womxn lead bicycle ride on August 5th, 2017. But we are no longer calling it Clitoral Mass, we are calling it Caile! Ah la Misa Negra! As we are in moarning for our comrades who are currently being deported and criminalized.

Caile! Ah La Misa Negra! Meetings take place every Wednesday from 7-9pm at La Conxa. We split into committees and deligate roles, as volunteers and organizers alike will be facilitating this years Womxn Lead Ride and with great news, we are making it a CO-ED RIDE, that means both cis-male, male identified folx will be welcomed to join us for this years annual ride.


Femi Bici + Rila Libre will be joining us from Oaxaca, Mexico!! We’ll be collaberating through social media as they also organize their very first C-MASS in Mexico!! We are excited to participate in resistance no matter the boarders that devide us. FUCK TRUMP!


La Conxa


La Concha, formerly known as Centro de Comunicación Comunitaria was established in January 2014. La Concha is an autonomous community center and safe space located in Boyle Heights, Califas.
Nov 1st 2016 is the last day @ Our Location, Psycos along side many other autonomous collectives are currently in Beast Mode as we Strive to get a new space and continue our programming!
It’s very important that we continue to keep safe spaces and programing in our communities. Please share the events and come out to the programing or let someone know about what we have going on. The Reality of the hood right now is that Gentrification is moving in rapidly and can’t BE IGNORED. We have a Duty to know what’s going on in our hoods. I encourage everyone to figure out ways to get involved in the anti-gentrification movement. Let us not forget how strong we are and strength in numbers shuts shit down!!!

5Th Annual Clitoral Mass: August 6th

Clitoral Mass 2016_flyer (4x5)

for Los Angeles’ 5th Annual
– – – – – – – – – – – –
Clitoral Mass is the largest bike ride in Los Angeles to date organized by and for womxn of color, trans, queer, two-spirited and gender nonconforming folx. With our arsenal of “indigena understanding and urban hood mentality,” we are building movement in the spirit of rebellion passed down by our great grandmothers, reclaiming the autonomy of our spaces and bodies as we continue to resist the settler occupation of both.

The riders will meet up Lou Costello Park at 9AM Saturday, August 6, 2016 with a bike repair station, photo booth and resources to greet participants. Festivities will start with an opening ceremony with blessing of the bikes, and bike safety skits. We will then ride out at 11AM. Riders can expect multiple pit stops with live music, freebies, and the unique experience of riding with hundreds of other womxn identified, nonconforming riders through the urban and natural terrains of the city’s streets.

We are taking up space in the street and owning our bodies.

We Want You at Clitoral Mass 2016!

– – – – – – – – – – – –
Clitoral Mass L.A. is organized by Ovarian Psycos Cycles and volunteers in the Clitoral Mass Committee.

Clitoral Mass represents solidarity between womxn, queer, femme, trans, gender non-conforming and two-spirited individuals from different walks of life to promote solidarity in bicycling, encourage safety, health in our communities and taking back the night.

We envision a movement in which womxn from all over the world organize their own Clitoral Mass in their respective communities in order to shift consciousness about social justice through bicycling for everyone.

> > P L E A S E – N O T E < <

This ride is open to all WOC & POC womxn, gender-non-conforming, queer, trans, two-spirited folx only!

> > We do recognize that the name Clitoral Mass does refer to cis-womxn’s reproductive system. However, it is not meant to exclude anyone. The name is a play on words intended to be playful and simultaneously create some sort of acknowledgement/acceptance/pride in one’s historically oppressed body. While this is a frequent motif of ours, we do not make apologies for using fem-posi symbolism and do so to reaffirm and reclaim our bodies and do not in any way do it with the intention to marginalize the many forms and genders that constitute “woman.” We prescribe to a decolonized/WOC feminist interpretation of womxnhood, which includes womxn and womxn-identified folks, or two-spirited/queer/trans folks. Long story short, ALL WOMXN-IDENTIFIED FOLX no matter what reproductive organs you have or do not have are welcome on this ride!< <
