Resistance and Food Sustainability

Date: 
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm
Location: 
Project Reach: 39 Eldridge St. Suite 4 New York, New York

Our food and water is too toxic for human consumption, making everyone too sick for revolution. Food and water, more than anything, belongs in the hands of the people. ​

Reclaiming the land is crucial in order for future generations to survive. Food and water sources have become privatized commodities and are continuously being stolen from the people. We'd like to show others the benefits of becoming food independent, the necessity of it and the methods to do so in small steps. Growing your own food is now considered a form of resistance and we'd like to encourage that idea

The Haitian popular masses have to fight imperialist domination and occupation and its local ruling class allies.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 - 7:00pm - 9:30pm
Location: 
Project Reach, 39 Eldridge Street, Suite 4, NY, NY

“During World War II, the death camp at Treblinka had an escape, causing the Commandant at a similar camp in Sobibor to vow that his camp would never experience the same thing. But those who were its captives, the Jewish laborers that had been spared from the ovens, knew that they were on borrowed time and that their only hope was to escape… the only question was how to do it” (IMDB)

Come join members of DGRNYC for a movie screening and a brief, open discussion on how we can apply the lessons of this dark period in history to our current struggle for life, freedom, and justice!
