Good street art popped up around Richmond last night.
Dwight Jones is Selling Our City
Join the Resistance. Come out to City Hall tomorrow at 5 to get down with bringing Jones and his plans down.
Tomorrow at City Council, speak out against the privatization of Monroe Park at the end of the Consent Agenda, and then speak out against the Stadium Plan during the Regular Agenda.
A recent new policy by the Virginia High School League sounds good, but the reality is that it is still transphobic. Big changes to the way sports go down in this country are necessary to include everyone from around the gender sphere!
March 18 at 3pm Land Use Meeting where discussion of Monroe Park privatization will happen.
March 24 at 6pm City Council Meeting will decide on Monroe Park privatization.
Both at City Hall.
Contact your city council members and spread the word hard between now and then.
Get educated, get involved.
If you want to help the Wingnut do any action around this please get in touch!
Following recent events in Chiapas, the Network for Solidarity and against Repression has urged “adherents to the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandón Jungle, and every organization, collective, and honest person in Mexico and the world who, from your own places, extend your embrace to the dignified rage of the Zapatistas,” to participate in the Week of National and International Solidarity, “If they touch the Zapatistas, they touch all of us”, to be held from February 16 to 23, to “denounce the counterinsurgency war” and express that “the Zapatista communities are not alone.”
This call results from great concerns about recent events, denounced by the Fray Bartolomé de las Casas Human Rights Center as: “the Chiapas government’s failure to prevent attacks on the support bases of the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN) from the 10 de Abril community,” leading to “an imminent possibility of new attacks and an intensification of the violence, which would be a risk to life and personal integrity, in addition to the violations of the right to territory and autonomy of the Zapatista peoples.”
These events came to light on January 31, when the Zapatista Good Government Junta, Heart of the Rainbow of Hope, from Caracol IV, and Whirlwind of our Words (based in Morelia, Chiapas) denounced new aggressions suffered by Zapatista support bases (BAZ). The attacks were made on the iconic Zapatista community of 10 de Abril in the autonomous rebel municipality 17 de Noviembre, by groups of government supporters belonging to the group Independent Center of Agricultural and Campesino Workers (CIOAC) Democratic, from the nearby Tojolabal community of 20 de Noviembre. Six BAZ members were injured, three of them seriously, and one is in danger of losing his sight. Furthermore, a shocking attack also took place on staff from the San Carlos Hospital in Altimirano who came to give assistance, but were attacked and prevented from attending to the injured.

This is Andrew, the new organizer and bike mechanic at the Wingnut. He has volunteered to run the bike shed and help his community through bike repair.
He is currently re organizing the shed. He will be looking for donations of bikes, bike parts, tubes, tires and TOOLS. Bike pumps and lights and helmets would also be amazing!
Some new bike shed policies he wants to assert include no spray painting, and no bikes not brought in by their owners. His availability will be fluctuating based on his school and work. Please stop by, especially when you see the doors to the shed open!
