Fast Food Forward
Fast Food Forward is a movement of NYC fast food workers to raise wages and gain rights at work. It is part of the national movement of low-wage workers fighting for a better future. When we make enough to live - instead of barely getting by - our community and economy benefit.
Fast Food Forward joins the momentum of the Black Friday strikes and other low-wage worker struggles to build community engagement, hold corporations and their CEOs accountable, and to raise wages so that all Americans can prosper.

Stop The Trans-Pacific Partnership
Have you heard? The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement is a stealthy policy being pressed by corporate America, a dream of the 1 percent, that in one blow could:
offshore millions of American jobs,
free the banksters from oversight,
ban Buy America policies needed to create green jobs and rebuild our economy,
decrease access to medicine,
flood the U.S. with unsafe food and products,
and empower corporations to attack our environmental and health safeguards.
Closed-door talks are on-going between the U.S. and Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam; with other countries, including China, potentially joining later. 600 corporate advisors have access to the text, while the public, Members of Congress, journalists, and civil society are excluded. And so far what we know about what's in there is very scary!

to Take Over Both Food Supply and Government
Genetically modified (GM) plants are grown from seeds engineered
to resist insecticides and herbicides, add nutritional benefits and
improve crop yields.
Corn, cotton, potatoes and wheat are among many other crops grown in the
US that are being genetically modified. Some believe they can lead to
health problems and harm the environment. Opponents have pushed for
mandatory labelling, though the federal government and many scientists
say the technology is safe. Proponents contend that plants grown from
GMO seeds allow farmers to grow more food using less resources.
On Wednesday, May 29, 2013 the US Department of Agriculture said
a strain of GM wheat was found on a farm in Oregan. The wheat strain was
developed by Monsanto and last tested in 2005, but never put into use in
the face of worldwide opposition to genetically engineered wheat.
The U.S. congress is set to hand billions to Monsanto while making huge cuts in the food stamp program.

MASTER PLAN TO DESTROY
The beautiful islands of Indonesia is under threat
Food Not Bombs activists in Indonesia shared the Master Plan
formulated by The Boston Consulting Group at One Beacon Street Boston,
Massachusetts which will cause much poverty and distruction of the
beautiful landscape in Indonesia. Huge coal and gold mines connected to
new sea ports by a system of trains will drive thousands from their land
and poison the water and sea. This plan is already underway and must be
stopped. Please organize in your community, outside all Indonesian
embassies and the offices of Boston Consulting. World wide dates of
action comming soon.

Uses a Sledgehammer Against Dissent
Support Food Not Bombs volunteer Jeremy Hammond
Jeremy Hammond will have his sentencing on September 6th.
Jeremy volunteered with Food Not Bombs in the Chicago area. He was
arrested and faced 30 years in prison for exposing computer files
showing that the government and corporations take illegal covert action
to stop legal protest against corproate interests.Hammond was facing
more than 30 years in prison, charged with hacking into the computers of
a private security and intelligence firm called Strategic Forecasting,
or Stratfor, when he agreed to a plea agreement of one count of computer
hacking. Stratfor traffics in "geopolitical intelligence, economic,
political and military forecasting," according to its website. Yet,
after Hammond and others released 5m emails from Stratfor's servers to
WikiLeaks, it became clear that the firm engages in widespread spying on
activists on behalf of corporations. Coca-Cola hired Stratfor to spy on
the group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Dow
Chemical hired Stratfor to spy on the activists who were exposing Dow's
role in the cyanide chemical disaster in Bhopal, India, in 1984 that
killed an estimated 8,000 and injured thousands more.
