There is a scheduled Land Use meeting at City Hall on Tuesday February 18th at 3pm, where the proposal for the privatization of Monroe Park will be presented by Alice Massey.
Please come out with friends, signs, and voices to be heard. It is imperative for the freedom of citizens of Richmond, the houseless, low income, radical social movements, and spontaneous events that we STOP the City from leasing Monroe Park to any private party, and STOP there from ever being a permit process or fee for holding events in our public commons.

||The 3rd Food Not Bombs Rotational Hosting meeting will be on Friday September 6th at 10am – The location hasn’t been announced yet, though it seems likely it will be at the VCU Library like the last 2 were. We will post an update when we hear what the location is.
UPDATE: VCU library room 152 will be the location of the meeting.
The facebook event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/207834902710393/
or search on facebook for Food Not Bombs Rotational Hosting Meeting #3
The purpose of this meeting is to make decisions about the logistics of rotating cooking sites for Richmond Food Not Bombs!
In the third meeting, we will synthesize the ideas put forward in the previous two and begin making decisions regarding the models, spaces, and logistics of rotational hosting.
The results of the Doodle poll made it impossible to include everybody who was interested in attending; in the next meeting those people will be given priority. If you are unable to attend this meeting but have a strong opinion, argument, or idea, please contact any of the event hosts!

We don’t have all of the information or links as of yet, but have just heard that the new City Budget has money for the Monroe Park Renovation Plan.
The Monroe Park Renovation Plan – at least in it’s 2010/2011 version, was incredibly problematic and incredibly classist.
We are meeting with a City Council person later this week to discuss the current situation and find out what the plan and timeline are.
Folks unfamiliar with this issue should take a look at wwwww.monroecampaign.wordpress.comw.monroecampaign.wordpress.com and www.monroeparkoccupation.wordpress.comhttp://www.monroeparkoccupation.wordpress.com and http://richmondiww.org/2010/11/03/455/ to see many articles on why park renovation plans were rejected by a huge coalition in years past.
We’ve occupied the park before, and will not allow the park to be shut down to serve the interests of VCU and gentrifiers.
If you’ve struggled against the Monroe Park Renovation before, this is your alert to start paying attention and be prepared to get involved and defend the people’s park!!!!
Monroe Park Will Stay Open.
We Will Win, We Always Do!
