01:53 pm - TAKE ACTION THIS FALL
I got this in an e-mail from Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry and think there's a lot in here of relevance to people interested or involved in a return to the land:

TAKE ACTION THIS FALL

You may have noticed that the global economic, political and
environmental future is in crisis. Fortunately there is a desire by many
to bring our world into balance. Even though poverty is crushing many
families they remain resilient. Every week I meet Americans that have
not eaten in days yet are up beat about having finally found a meal.
Many people are contacting Food Not Bombs to ask for our support. Many
are expressing support for the dedicated volunteers in Orlando resisting
the mayor's laws against sharing meals with the hungry. Our volunteers
are now heading to court after the city made 29 arrests. Most are
contacting us because they need food but others are proposing that we
join them in protest or inviting us to support their tour. These are
some of the actions and tours you can also support.

Thanks

LIST OF ACTIONS AND TOURS YOU CAN SUPPORT THIS FALL

THE SUSTAINABLE LIVING ROADSHOW
The Sustainable Living Roadshow is a national coalition of educators
and entertainers who tour the country in a fleet of renewable fuel
vehicles to empower communities and individuals to utilize sustainable
living strategies for a healthier planet.

To educate, entertain, and activate!

This year, our tour's theme is RIGHT2KNOW. The fall tour will culminate
in a march from Brooklyn, NY to Washington, D.C. calling for an
initiative to be put on the ballot in 2012 demanding labeling of GMOs.
Did you know that we are one of two industrialized nations in the WORLD
that do not label GMOs? We think you have a right to know! Not just
about GMOs, but about many other things that go on in this world. We aim
to bring this knowledge to people through interesting and informative
edutainment.

THE ELECT TO END HUNGER AND POVERTY TOUR
Arrange a presentation with Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry

The Elect to End Hunger and Poverty presentation talks about the
campaign to end the criminalization of poverty and Food Not Bombs
support of the global protest against austerity. Food Not Bombs
co-founder Keith McHenry will share the details of the history,
principles and current activities of the movement.

Most people would elect to end hunger and poverty but many of the
people running for office in 2012 have another agenda cutting social
services and transfer our tax dollars to wealthy military contractors
and their friends. At the same time governments are attempting to ban
Food Not Bombs from sharing meals with the hungry in places like
Florida.

Volunteers recover, prepare and share vegan meals and groceries in
nearly 1,000 communities, feeding the hungry, supporting nonviolent
direct actions in resistance to the global economic, political and
environmental crisis while implementing a foundation for a sustainable
future.
