LOVE TRUMPS HATE
Workshops, protests and
resistance to hate.
Food Not Bombs groups are helping resist the racists, misogynistic, and homophobic hate expressed by Trump. We are ready to help defend the environment, resist assault on civil liberties, plans for more war, cuts in social services and support those threatened with deportation.
Many people that have little experience in protest are taking to the streets. Food Not Bombs volunteers are organize workshops to help those new to protest learn and practice the basic skills need to organize effective protests. Food Not Bombs workshops include information on how to promote actions, unite coalitions, what can happen if you are arrested and how to organize legal support. These workshops will help you plan and participation in acts of nonviolent direct action. Many of the skilled needed for successful organizing can be found in our book Hungry For Peace. Check with your local Food Not Bombs group to find workshops on protesting Trump's campaign of hate.
Affinity Group Formation
Forming affinity groups is an important first step in resisting fascism. An affinity group is simply a voluntary group formed around a common goal or interest. Such groups typically have five to ten participants who know one another and meet at least once a month, sometimes as much as several times a week. An affinity group provides a space for discussing tactics, strategies, and specific actions. It also provides a place to work cooperatively on projects. Importantly, it also serves as a means of mutual support and validation, a means of overcoming the crushing isolation that keeps people alone, disempowered, and hopeless; it can provide inspiration and stir the imagination in these dark times.
Who Will Stand Up to Donald Trump? We Will!
WATER IS LIFE
Help resist the rush to climate destruction. Join the Food Not Bombs Kitchen at the Rosebud Camp at Standing Rock
The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is owned by Energy Transfer Partners of Houston, Texas. The DAPL, also known as the Bakken Pipeline, is proposed to transport 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day (which is fracked and highly volatile) from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. Dakota Access has failed to consult with tribes and conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Construction has already damage burial grounds and could poison the sacred Missouri River and aquifer.
Federal government reports show that there have been more than 8,700 significant incidents with U.S. pipelines involving death, injury, and economic and environmental damage since 1986—more than 300 per year.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is one more assault on our climate, water and life. Please join us.
