The System is Guilty! Tonight We Take the Streets!

eric_garner_reaction_12_nyc

Once again the “justice” system has refused to hold police accountable for murder. Yesterday it was made clear that there will be no criminal accountability for anyone involved in the homicide of Eric Garner.

Meet in Foley Square 111 Worth Street at 5:30pm or at Sara D. Roosevelt Park Houston and Chrystie Streets at 7:30pm.

Remember it’s cold out so if you don’t have a good scarf you can always make due with a t-shirt. Be safe and watch each others backs!

There will also be a number of demonstrations throughout the city in solidarity with Ferguson and those resisting the racist criminal “justice” system.

At 1pm in Hereald Square:

Disheartened by the non-indictment of Darren Wilson; angered by glaring injustice towards Mike Brown’s family and others who have been killed by state-sanctioned law enforcement and vigilantes; uplifted by the realization that economic power is the root of productive communities, we will gather at Herald Square, 1pm on Black Friday to denounce multinational corporations and businesses that continuously erode the fabric of a peaceful society.

We thank Million Hoodies Movement for Justice for co-sponsoring this action.

Just sharing (or taking what others have to share) makes you part of it.

Looking for a New Home for Grub – Community Dinners!

Grub has been going great for nearly 10 years and counting! The twice a month community dinner has hosted so many amazing people over the years and functioned as a networking space and a  catalyst for much more. We have been introducing people to ideas about community, mutual aid, anarchism, and freegan practices in warm inviting space for all this time but  now we are in need of new locations to hold these events!

IMG_2287

We are now reaching out and  looking for a new permanent,  temporary, or occasional space to hold the Grub Community Dinners. We have always held Grub dinners in spaces where people live but that can be open to the public. For the most part we have been in spaces that are lofts and maybe also host parties and other events. We have also always held Grub in BedStuy, Clinton Hill, or downtown Brooklyn. We are open to other neighborhoods but don’t want to go too far away from where we live and are based geographically. We absolutely need a location that has both a kitchen and the space to accommodate 30-40 participants sharing dinner. The dinners are always held on the first and third Sunday of each month. In order to prepare and then clean up after we would need access to a potential space from approximately 3:30-10:30pm.

Grub is organized by a conscientious group of people who make sure to always leave whatever space we use in as good if not better shape then we found it. Most all of the food we prepare is organic and high in quality, much of it is donated by a local organic market. There are usually leftovers that we can leave with our hosts if they can use them. In the past we have helped to outfit kitchens of our host locations by upgrading their stove and oven or getting them an electric dishwasher. We have an ample supply of our own cookware and most everything we need from knives and cutting boards to silverware and plates.

Please get in touch if you can help us find a new location!

Thanks!
