Hi everyone. Do any VOCs want to go see OCCUPY THE FARM on Tuesday, March 31 at 7pm at Clinton St Theatre?! Let's please meet in front of the theatre at 6:45. Maybe afterwards we can go across the street to Dot's Cafe and get a bite. They have one of the best housemade veggie burgers in town with fries...

Here's more info on it: "OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of a community's fight to save public land for urban farming. When 200 farmers march to the gates of the last farmland in the urban East Bay near Oakland, they don't carry signs protesting University of California's plans to build a shopping center. Instead, they carry tents, tools and 15,000 seedlings. They clip the padlock off the gate and march onto the fields. What happens next will change the fate of the land and introduce a new strategy for activism. From tilling soil and watering vegetables to police raids, from lawsuits to overflowing harvests, OCCUPY THE FARM reveals a resourceful, creative, and determined community responding with direct action to a serious social need: access to healthy food."

(Chad's review is: "There's a lot of white saviors in it, but it has some pretty cool elements.")
