Olympia Movement for Justice & Peace  will have at least two tables set up; VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO TABLE FROM 1PM to 6PM on Saturday, July 20th at 5th and Water (along side Traditions).   Let marylea@smallblueplanet.org   or mike@smallblueplanet.org  know if you can put in an hour, or two, or three tabling. →→ AND PLEASE BRING ADDITIONAL MATERIAL TO HAND OUT☺

WE WILL HAVE THE REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET SET UP NEARBY.  Bring, and give away absolutely free, any usable items, skills, ideas, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, games and many others things that we as a community can come together and share.  Temporary autonomous zone instituting the gift economy as an alternative to the capitalist mode of resource distribution.  An ethos and a way of being that transforms people through its experience and is then carried into other areas of life.

Gar Lipow WILL HAVE A COALTION OF IMMOKOLEE VIDEO PROJECT RUNNING from 12-4pm.   The Coalition of Immokalee workers http://www.ciw-online.org/ is currently engaged in a campaign to pressure Wendy’s to join other major tomato buyers in joining the Fair Food Program. As a member of the Fair Food Program Wendy’s would refuse to buy tomatoes from farmers who did not treat their workers fairly and would also pay an extra cent a pound for tomatoes (which would add less than a cent to the cost of producing a Wendy’s meal) to allow a fair rate of pay for tomato workers.
