In addition to our regularly scheduled vegan potluck, we will be accompanied by speaker and activist, Max Rameau. His two projects at the moment include Miami's COPWATCH program, to police the police and take community resistance to the next level, and TAKE BACK THE LAND, an idea that goes beyond the reactionary in addressing Miami's housing crisis and misplaced concern for the most affluent. One very well remembered victory thusfar for TAKE BACK THE LAND has been the implementation of real solutions displayed by the UMOJA VILLAGE SHANTYTOWN in Miami's less privileged Liberty City.
As for the potluck, attendees need only bring themselves and a vegan dish, allthough, the dish isn't mandatory. All are welcome to eat and/or see the presentation. Max is driving up from miami at great expense in gas and time away from home. We've agreed to pay him $100 dollars, $20 of which has already been pledged. Furthermore, we consensed to putting up the remaining $80 at the last Orlando Food Not Bombs meeting, with the idea that we'd have a donation jar available for people who can donate to Max. Therefore, all donations will go to Max and fnb will make up the difference, if necessary. If more that $80 is generated, all will still go to Max.
