Revolutionary prose and raps at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective- 2005 Barton Avenue Richmond, VA 23222

Performers will have merch to sell, and we will also be asking for donations for their efforts, recommended $5 donation, but if you don’t have it come anyway to get some fire in your belly!

Brando is a slam poet from Denver, CO. It is pretty badass anarcho spoken word punk type stuff. (he also was on the slam team that won the National Poetry Slam competition in 2011) He has been doing a mix of poetry events and punk shows

Looking for one or two other spoken word or radical musicians to perform!

As many know, Monsanto has taken on the totalitarian role of controlling food and food sourcing on a global level. This monopoly has made it so that conventional food is no longer truly food and the profit they make everyday furthers their lovely process of eugenics via commercial foods.

This year marked the first global March Against Monsanto that over 2 million people took part in. We hope to see this every year, maybe more than just annually. We the people do not need Monsanto, never have, and never will. 

Here are some pictures via the Richmond, VA march and if anyone has any others please be sure to let us know.

One personal note I would like to add in reference to corporate foods, Monsanto, and the USDA/FDA is: DO NOT FALL FOR THE CORPORATE ORGANIC SCHEME. 

“Organic” is NOT a revolution. If you eat all-organic or non-GMO marketed products/foods you are not revolutionary and are most likely actually contrary. Organic/whole/vegan/natural foods are the ORIGINAL foods of mother Earth and people this last past century or so have let despots control and poison our modern foodsource. Now the public is supposed to pay MORE for a product that is easier, simpler, better, and more ecologically friendly than conventional foods? I dont think so. Organic foods are a market and a profit for capitalism- not a revolution.

2nd: Organic, as a corporate label, is false on account that your “organic” milk most likely came from a cow that might have been fed more “natural” foods, but carries the genetics of thousands of conventionally/GMO bred cattle. Everytime something is packaged with petroleum, or stickers with chemical adhesives are stuck onto produce, or ultimately anytime something is farmed/processed/made/baked with flouridated water (the only sourced water within any and all institutions in America) it is NO LONGER organic.. Organic seeds also most likely had un-organic parents and are watered with flouridated water.

Organic isnt a new start- its taking select items on the market and using supposedly “higher quality” (simpler) means of production to then raise the price to appeal to the wealthy elite. Why would corporations want only the upper classes to have “quality” foods? This is what we call Eugenics. Weeding out the weak (poverty) and giving them the “lower status/quality” foods so that they may remain poisoned and dependent on the medical system while the white wealthy elite remains dependent on consumerism via groceries in this scenario. Isn’t this great? Capitalism is wonderful.

Until you educate yourself in agriculture, farming, survivalism, etc etc dont go telling people you eat healthier because you eat food with packages that say the “o” word on them. You have no proof they are better. Oh, studies show it? Studies also show that when officials say “studies show” people believe and buy more. So are you accurate, or just falling in line for another trend in the first-world? Who is conducting these studies? How much money does the organic industry make annually, and then to top it off, ask yourself… who the fuck owns all these companies. Bada-bing! The same banks that bring you Mcdonalds, Pepsi, Wal-Mart, etc etc also own the organic industry. Revolutionary? No. Consumerism. Period.

The greatest people I know dont have $500 worth of WholeFoods groceries in their house that they just bought. They farm, they liberate, or they dumpster food, because they are over the lies and the scams. Capitalism is capitalism no matter what you buy. Period. Stop buying the lie. The market was not designed for your health, just your money (slavery). Obtain heirloom seeds, spring water, and farm. That is the revolution.

Here’s a few disclaimers for potential visitors of the Wingnut.  They aren’t meant to scare you off, just to make you aware of our situational reality.  They’ve been posted in the foyer of the house, but having them on the internet also is probably a good idea.

Disclaimer 1:
The house is under heavy police surveillance, and we are operating under the assumption that the house is bugged and all of our phones are tapped.

For this reason, it is IMPERATIVE that guests and visitors do not possess, do, or talk about ANYTHING illegal while on these premises.  This is for your safety as well as our own. (more…)

Last night we watched the Murder of Fred Hampton at the Wingnut. About 14 people were over to watch the movie. It consists of original films taken of Fred Hampton and the Black Panthers before he was murdered, and then film documenting the murder and aftermath. The film of Fred Hampton was compelling, and it was inspiring to see him speak. His charisma and organizational abilities were obvious.

“You can jail a revolutionary, but you can’t jail a revolution”

The movie really showed how obvious the situation was, in terms of Fred Hampton having just simply been murdered. The film also showed various aspects of the work that the Illinois Black Panther Party was doing at the time. As well as the general persecution they were facing daily at the hands of the pigs- including having their headquarters burned down.

The movie reinforced the brutality of the police and state and the extreme lengths they will go to in order to destroy movements working effectively towards social justice and healthy communities. Somber but important lessons.

If you missed the movie, but want to see it, just contact us. Maybe we will do another screening of it, or you can just come over to watch it sometime.

Also, don’t forget about the other movies being shown this month and the Memorial Day BBQ and hangout memorializing those murdered by the state.

I am a revolutionary.
