What we are not into: the state, police, jails, bosses, capitalism, hierarchy, consumerism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, classism, etc.

What we do about it: food not bombs, copwatch, prisoner support, food not lawns, bike repair, radical lending library, public computer, radical zine collection, game nights, potlucks, movie nights, music/poetry/puppet performances, grocery and produce distribution, sobriety support, host and facilitate workshops, attending local city council and other meetings to speak out against bad plans and for good ones (recent examples include the privatization of Monroe park, shockoe stadium, and public $$$ going to Venture Richmond), organize and attend protests on a variety of political issues, critical mass bike rides, host speakers, trash cleanups, support fast food workers and others fighting for a living wage, free store clothing cabinets, little free library, free anarchist and radical literature distribution and more!

Anarchism is the revolutionary idea that no one is more qualified than you are to decide what your life will be!!!

“Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals.
We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery, poverty, crime and confusion existing in society.” – Lucy Parsons – anarchist, labor organizer 1853-1942

“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the earth, the money, and the machines.” – Voltairine de Cleyre – anarchist, feminist 1866-1912

If you need extra scrap produce to add to your compost pile.

compost

or scrap veggies to feed to your chickens (trust us, they love em, and it will save you money on chicken feed)

I-feed-my-chickens-scraps

please come by the Wingnut Anarchist Collective at 2005 Barton Avenue to get some!

We do Wingnut Food Not Bombs Produce Distribution every Wednesday and Friday morning, putting the food out by 8am. By the evening the food has been gone through, with the good stuff mostly taken.

If you want compost scrap or produce for chickens, it will be out front of the house, in cardboard boxes along the retaining wall. You will be getting free scrap to use in your gardening and chicken loving endeavors, and you will be helping us and our neighbors to get rid of the trash.

We don’t want to see all the compost and cardboard end up in the trash, but it is way beyond our capacity to re-use or re-cycle. So help yourself, and help a program that gets healthy food into a local food desert to low income and elderly folks.

The best times to come by would be Wednesday evenings, Thursdays all day, Friday evenings, and Saturdays all day. Please take as much as you can use, and help us keep the distribution area neat and clean!

It is getting cold outside, and we have had a lot of our friends and neighbors ask us if we had any clothes to give away right now. We periodically get donations and distribute them in our neighborhood. But right now we don’t have any- help us fix that problem!!!

We have a lot of low-income, in recovery, on fixed income, young and elderly neighbors who could use a boost this time of year! Any nice clothing/blankets/pillows/books can bring cheer!

If you or your company has anything nice that we could distribute to low income families this December we would be happy to facilitate that. For instance, hygeine kits, flowers, baked goods, books, movies, etc. When its so cold out many low income folks don’t have much to do in the way of entertainment.

Please bring your gently used and clean clothing, shoes, blankets, socks, and coats to the Wingnut Anarchist Collective at 2005 Barton Avenue.

We will be accepting donations for the entire month of December!

Please drop them off anytime, if no one is home you can leave them on our front porch under the roof so as to be protected by the weather.

halloweenparty

Monday October 14th 6-9pm at 2005 Barton Avenue
Bonus to anyone who brings halloween themed food!
Come hang out, eat food, check out the Wingnut if you haven’t, talk about your ideas, network etc.We can talk about consent or copwatch or anarchism or current events. We can talk about Food Not Bombs, our bikes program, movie nights, the radical sobriety support group, and more! We can plan workshops and projects!

We have a lot of friends and get a lot of requests from new folks who want to know what we are all about. We figure a monthly open communal meal is a lowkey way to stay in touch with old friends and make new friends.

Hopefully this will be a monthly, casual affair, alternating between the last Saturday and the second Monday of months.

Potluck so please bring a dish to share. Vegan or not just let folks know.

Non-alcoholic beverages also welcome as the Wingnut is a sober space.
All ages event. More info on Wingnut policies available at www.wingnutrva.org

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective has been organizing a monthly Mobile Food Pantry with the Central Virginia Food Bank for almost 3 years now, where we get food to around 200 households in Southern Barton Heights. It is an act of solidarity that we can do, which only takes 3-5 hours a month to do and organize, which has a tangible benefit to members of this community.

For April we served 167 households, (14 of which were deliveries we did to folks who are elderly/disabled/or stuck at work).

out of those households we had 197 Adults, 78 Seniors, and 174 Children. So over 400 people in our community got a little extra food in April.

We do the Mobile Food Pantry on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1pm in the parking lot at the corner of North Ave. and West Graham. Volunteers help us set it up at 12 noon.

Folks who are on our distribution list are guaranteed food, we also serve food to walkups who aren’t on our voucher list as long as there is food to go round.

Barton Heights Community Association

October Meeting

Tuesday October 9th at 6:30 pm

at Triumphant Baptist Church (Lamb Ave. and Poe St.)
Entrance around the back parking lot to the basement

Agenda:

Defining our communities geographic boundary

Environmental, Health, and Utility concerns

Planning a Fall Community Festival

Bring your ideas, concerns, interests, etc.

Residents, organizations, business owners etc. encouraged to attend.

We have 2 videos of the September 11th, 2012 meeting of the Barton Heights Community Association.

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective films and makes available the video as a matter of public record, and to help folks who can’t make the meetings stay aware of the issues going on. The Barton Heights Community Association is not the same thing as the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, we are just members.

At the meeting we forgot to announce at the beginning that we were video recording, and why, and where it was going to be placed, and to give folks the option to opt out. We are sorry for this oversight, and will announce at future meetings, and not video record folks who do not wish to be recorded.

Since Community Associations act as representative bodies for their neighborhoods, we do think that folks have a right to know what goes on at the meetings, even if they can’t make it due to work or school.

The next Barton Heights Community Association Meeting will be on Tuesday October 9th at 6:30pm at Triumphant Baptist Church at Lamb Ave. and Poe St. We use the basement entrance located on the parking lot side of the building.
