Friends, we have bad news for PPEHRC this morning. After hours and hours of hard labor from may amazing people on our farm someone came and took all of our raised beds and wood from our farm last night. We can’t let this get us down. We are growing the food on this farm because we need to feed our families. So we will continue!! We need your help too. If you have any dirt, wood, plants, lawnmowers, weed whackers, any tools for yard work, and some time to spend on the farm we really need your help.
What are the most dire issues we face? If you’re like most Americans, you’d probably say the climate crisis and the jobs crisis. So why is Washington so obsessed with budget cuts and fossil fuels? Don’t ask members of Congress who have been purchased by corporate lobbyists, ask the ones with the receipts: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce. We’re leading a march of the long-term unemployed from Philadelphia, PA to Washington, DC directly to the Chamber’s front door.
We will be marching from Philadelphia to Washington DC. Leaving at 1:00 pm from 3rd and Cumberland on the 18th of May and arriving to The Department of Commerce by the 24th of May to Demand Green Jobs Now! We need Jobs now in order to provide for our families and save our planet!
Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign is stepping up its farm organizing. We are committed to working toward a city where our communities can support themselves. No longer will people, our friends and families and children, go hungry while vacant land sits empty and unused. We are no longer waiting for politicians to address the problems in this the second hungriest congressional district in the nation or the 40,000 vacant lots in Philadelphia or the many environmental problems we face everyday and will increasingly face. For this, we need support from our members and friends.
Article: The Current Crisis, Housing, and What is our Reaction?
The current situation with our economy by most economists and futurists seems to indicate that things are only gonna get worse. In spite of the pontifications of both the Obama Campaign apologists and the Romney Campaign apologists, things continue to get worse, not only here, but around the world. The answer from the Corporate controlled plutocracy continues to be cutbacks domestically, while continuing to give the wealthy and the corporations tax breaks, and continuing to spend money on continuous war around the world.
Dear friends, we are in Charlotte, NC at the DNC protests. When the Phillie contingent comes in, the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign will have 35 of our members here. We are at encampment at Marshall Park in downtown Charlotte. Several Occupies, including Occupy Wall Street are here. Also, St. Pete for Peace, Code Pink, the Green Party, Veterans For Peace. We are establishing our encampment as Obamaville, as we speak. It appears that the Democratic Machine is on overtime in attempting to co-opt the protestors. We are on public land, in a very nice park on a small lake. The park already had port-a-lets that were provided indirectly by democratic party supporters.
