Musicians

Though DC has some good local talent, we can all benefit from hearing new music. This is a call for all musicians to come to the gatherings in DC.

If you, any of your fellow volunteers, or any friends are musical and want to play up here, there is an open invite. We are looking for any and all kinds of music, hip hop, bluegrass, house, whatever it is that you know how to play, come here and play it!

Let us know what all you play and send us a flyer or two, we’ll find a venue and get the word out.

Converge!

Hello,

As many of you know, there was a gathering in Monterrey, Mexico in May, the participants came to consensus on three proposals, they are to:  Improve the Food Not Bombs contact list; Have a Global Day of Action on World Food Day РOctober 16; and to have a World FNB gathering in Monterrey Mexico to focus on Inter Chapter Communications and Actions (http://www.foodnotbombs.net/mexico_soupsock_proposal.html).

Well, here in DC we’ve talked about these proposals amongst ourselves, but we’d like to see some larger scale discussion of these and other points. We are calling for two gatherings, the first will be for the Mid-Atlantic Chapters (Boston down to Richmond and over to Pittsburgh) and will be held in Washington, DC during the first weekend of September (3rd-5th). The second gathering will be for the Mississippi River and East chapters (Minneapolis, St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, and East) and will be in DC during November 11th-14th.

At these gatherings we hope for there to be discussion on such topics as power and¬†privilege, dumpstering, security culture, food justice, housing, the environment, much more. These aren’t just for sitting around and talking though, there will be loads of food, shows, parties and radical cooks to get involved with. Talk about this in your kitchens, at your sharings, and with interested and interesting folks. We’re asking for a r.s.v.p. for the Mid-Atlantic gathering by August 15th and for the East of the Mississippi gathering by October 15th.

Food and Solidarity!
