Vegan Brunch Spectacular!

from Facebook

That’s right, it’s time! Us North Philly Food Not Bombadiers wish to honor the one year anniversary of a day that shook this planet: January 20th of 2017, the day trump seized the mantle of control of this (lol) ‘democracy’. To oppose trump and his zombies, there were some brave and marvelous souls that took to the streets, galvanized into fierce action, and kicked off a wave of rebellion that has not ceased yet (we hope it never does!). Essentially they put their lives on the line, as hundreds are facing what amounts life sentences for their public defiance.

We want to offer up another all vegan brunch fundraiser as a means for people to get together, forge bonds and to hold space for this important day. Everything will be completely vegan and delicious. We will invite some other wonderful radical groups into the mix too, there will surely be some fantastic books and art.

Please make it out! Each brunch we’ve done has been better then the last. We will update menu and location as soon as confirmed!

[10AM to 3PM January 20 Location Cindergarden-Ask a skunk!]

Mariner East II Pipeline Construction Crews Approaching Pennsylvania’s Camp White Pine; Help Needed

from It’s Going Down

Construction crews are closing in on both sides of Camp White Pine. For nearly two years, Elise and Ellen Gerhart, along with many allies, have been holding tree sits on their property to defend their land from Energy Transfer Partners’ Mariner East II Pipeline. The project would destroy their family’s land in order to export highly volatile fracking waste to Europe for plastics manufacturing.

Already during construction, Mariner East II has caused dozens of spills, contaminating water supplies and in some cases permanently damaging residential wells.

As the Gerharts prepare to take a bold stand to protect their land, they need our support.

Jewish Voice for Peace Action & No IACP Bail Fund

from Disrupt IACP

An online fundraising page has been set up in coordination with the Philly Anti-Repression Fund to preemptively prepare for any possible arrests during the mobilization against the IACP.

From the No IACP Bail Fund:

Organizations and individuals will be mobilizing in mass demonstrations and have called for decentralized, autonomous actions throughout the weekend to oppose this gathering, and we need your help! Any funds you can give will go towards bail in the event of arrests that weekend, and it’s crucial that we fundraise in advance in order to show people coming out for this mobilization that we support them.

Please donate what you can – anything you can give helps!

** All funds not used for bail during the IACP conference will be donated to the Philly Anti-Repression Fund to support future arrestees. **

Check out phillyantirepression.wordpress.com for more information on the Philly Anti-Repression Fund!


Jewish Voice for Peace – Philadelphia has called for an action on October 22nd outside the convention center targeting the participation of the Anti-Defamation League in the IACP conference. Their call, titled Tell the ADL: End Deadly Police Exchanges, reads:

TELL THE ADL: END DEADLY POLICE EXCHANGES. Militaristic policing doesn’t make us safe!

Why will the Anti-Defamation League, a self-professed civil rights leader, have a table at a conference of police chiefs?

Join JVP Philly for this action outside the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference. We’ll be out there to call on the Anti-Defamation League to stop running exchange programs between U.S. police departments and Israeli military. These exchanges exacerbate racist police violence, militarization, and surveillance both here and in Israel/Palestine.

Policing doesn’t make us feel safe, and we reject safety built on militarized, racist, Islamophobic policing.

We’re working towards a world in which safety for all people is created through community and justice, and not for some people only through violence against others.

This action is part of the #DeadlyExchange campaign to end police exchanges between the US and Israel. To learn more and get involved with this local campaign email philly@jvp.org.

#EndtheDeadlyExchange #AbolitionWeekend

A facebook event for the JVP event can be found here.

Notably, the ADL recently released a “primer for law enforcement” on antifa activity which included recommendations that police “plant undercover agents among antifa activists, and … film protests.” This sort of collaboration on the part of ostensibly progressive “civil liberties” organizations is a key component of the counterinsurgency strategies that the IACP promotes.

Let’s shut them all down.

Other ways to help:::
Defendj20resistance.org

There will be an information table with zines and other media meant to help educate and inform people about the situation with J20 defendants, anarchism, mutual aid, state repression, community building and related subjects. I also plan to have an appearance by a public speaker that will speak on these points as well. Punk is undeniably political and the political is undeniably personal. We need to have more conversations with each other and our communities at large about social and political issues and movements. We can teach each other how to make this fucked up world a better place, as we all have varying experiences and lessons learned from those experiences. If anyone has any offering to contribute to this event in this way please don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s strengthen our community and stand in solidarity with each other in every way possible.

Racist, sexist, homo/transphobic, mysoginist, predatorial behavior at this event will end very badly for the perpetrator so stay the fuck home if that’s your m.o.
