Ok folks, hold onto your hats. We have got a change up with Richmond Food Not Bombs. One house in the rotation has dropped out so we are now going to be hosting for the month of September at The Wingnut Anarchist Collective 2005 Barton Avenue. October and November will be planned to be at 3100 1st Avenue. September is Mo’s birthday and marks their 12th year of some sort of involvement with Food Not Bombs. Come celebrate with Mo by coming out to cook on Sundays in September at 12:30.
Look out for notice of a Food Not Bombs meeting soon so we can figure out a long term schedule and maybe a new house to add back into the rotation.
We need to keep strong because we are still facing the privatization of Monroe Park and possible issues from that coming up next Summer. Momentum must be built and allies made.

“Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals.
We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery, poverty, crime and confusion existing in society.” – Lucy Parsons – anarchist, labor organizer 1853-1942
“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the earth, the money, and the machines.” – Voltairine de Cleyre – anarchist, feminist 1866-1912

They Flew Me to Canada, and Boy Are My Arms Tired!
Dane Rossman speaks about his experience being extradited to Canada for actions during the 2010 G20 Summit in Toronto. Dane is an anarchist living on occupied Tohono O’odham land in Tucson, Arizona. He’s been involved for several years in anti-colonial, No Borders, and prison/police abolition movements, and will try to situate his experience of incarceration and extradition within that history, with an emphasis on ongoing struggles in Arizona.
Dane hopes to use this opportunity to raise funds for the other G20 extraditees still being held by the Canadian state, so bring cash if you can.
For more info on those cases and struggles in Arizona, see the following:

We are recommending this short zine written by our friends, which is a brief analysis of the fast food industry from an intersectional lense. We at the Wingnut have been involved locally with the Fight for $15 Fast Food Workers movement. We support workers because a)some of us are fast food workers or other low paid workers, b) not supporting workers would get us no closer to social change, and c) we have to build movements to have movements, and create relationships with people to build the community that is necessary to transform the world.
But at the end of the day, we are anti-capitalists. Not all of us are vegan, but the environmental impacts, health impacts, animal suffering, exploitation of low income people of color and more mean that the Fast Food Industry is a major negative impact on our communities. Improving the working conditions and raising wages is something that all industries need and all workers deserve. However, the Fast Food Industry is specifically so rotten, so toxic, that changes to labor will never be enough.
We will continue to support the Fight for $15 and other worker’s movements, but we will also always keep the bigger picture in mind. Low wages and bad working conditions are just a symptom of the rotten exploitative attitude of the fast food industry. We need to attack the roots.
Check out the zine, read more about it, and help us create a vision for a world without Fast Food, and where our communities are healthy and sustainable!
