RVA Food Not Bombs October 2012 Can Drive

Food Not Bombs is calling for canned vegan vegetables to replenish their pantry. The drive lasts from today until Halloween.

There are three dropoff locations for canned goods, for now:

1. The Wingnut Anarchist Collective, at 2005 Barton Avenue. Leave the cans in the provided container on the stairs. This location is not wheelchair/mobility accessible.

2. Crenshaw House, at 919 West Franklin Street. There is a box immediately inside the door, clearly marked with a bright gold poster with an arrow. This location is also not wheelchair/mobility accessible. (The GSEX team, who helped get this lined up, has a Tumblr here.)

3. The VCU Office of Multiculturalism and Student Affairs, on the second floor of the Monroe Park VCU Student Commons. The box is bright red and marked with a poster, and immediately inside the office. The office itself is also marked with a bright gold poster, designating the spot a dropoff location. This location IS wheelchair/mobility accessible, by elevator.

If you know of another place that might be open to hosting a donation box, please message this Tumblr- especially if the location is further from VCU campus, and/or accessible.

Some good canned items to donate are: black, kidney, white, and pinto beans, tomatoes, peaches, corn, and tomato sauce. Every meal is vegan, so please check labels (especially for seasoned beans) to make sure there’s no meat, dairy, or egg products in the cans.

While Food Not Bombs prepares the bulk of each meal from fresh foods that grocery stores would otherwise throw away, sometimes non-perishable items are needed to augment the meal- and sometimes, a pickup is small or doesn’t come through. Food Not Bombs can also be called upon to cater for events; for example, FNB has catered the Virginia People’s Assembly, rePHRAME meetings, and IWW events.

Food Not Bombs cooks every Sunday at 12:30pm at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective (2005 Barton Avenue), and eats at 4:00pm in Monroe Park, at the intersection of Main and Belvidere streets. Everyone is welcome for either or both.

Walter Bond is a political prisoner that we have been meaning to write about for a while now. When we read his statement to the Court upon his sentencing we were awed, inspired, and proud. We failed to re-post that statement in a timely fashion. However, because he is now being held in solitary confinement, it seems a good opportunity to revisit his statement and introduce or update people on Walter Bond and his case.

Walter Bond is an animal liberationist and an anti-capitalist. Basically, Walter Bond set fire to a sheepskin factory in Colorado in the name of the Animal Liberation Front. His brother then snitched on him. He was later sentenced to 5 years in prison. He is now being kept in solitary confinement because of the classification of the Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front as domestic terrorist groups- despite their policies of not harming humans or other animals physically.

If anyone is interested in writing Walter letters with the Richmond Anarchist Black Cross please come out on Tuesday April 12th at 7pm at the Wingnut. Walter’s birthday is April 16th.

For more frequent updates or details, please visit his official support website:

Walter Bond still has Federal and other charges pending, some of which he has plead not guilty to. The charges over his head make his final statement in court even more amazing. Here is his statement from Court, which was given on February 11th, 2011:

“I’m here today because I burnt down the Sheepskin Factory in Glendale, CO, a business that sells pelts, furs and other dead animal skins. I know many people think I should feel remorse… for what I’ve done. I guess this is the customary time where I’m suppose to grovel and beg for mercy. I assure you, if that’s how I felt, I would. But I am not sorry for anything I have done. Nor am I frightened by this court’s authority because any system of law that values the rights of the oppressor over the down trodden is an unjust system. And though this court has real and actual power, I question its morality. I doubt the court is interested in the precautions that I took to not harm any person or by-stander and even less concerned with the miserable lives that sheep, cows and mink had to endure, unto death, so that a Colorado business could profit from their confinement, enslavement, and murder.
