CWers needed in DM Oct 15-16 for 3rd annual OWFP campaign for the 2014 Food Sovereignty Prize Award Ceremony and OWFP Rally & Direct Action at the State Capitol building before the World Food Prize awards ceremony
Where else can you combine the “back to the land” Peter Maurin side of the CW movement to the “militant pacifist” Ammon Hennacy side of our beloved movement!!!
Dear CWers and other peace and justice folks:
We want to invite you to come to Des Moines and join us and many others in a two-day Occupation of the World Food Prize.
(http://www.worldfoodprize.org/ - spend a few minutes on this web page
and you will understand why this prize needs to be occupied!)
Using our experience from the 2012 Occupy the IA Caucus campaign:
For the third year in a row we hope to direct the public discourse about our Global World Food System through the use of direct action & nonviolent civil disobedience.
Wed. Oct 15:
OWFP is hosting the 2014 Food Sovereignty Prize Award Ceremony. http://foodsovereigntyprize.org/fs-prize/ This alternative peoples’ food prize is a perfect antidote to the Corporate Ag “World Food Prize”!
Thurs. Oct 16:
Lift the veil on Corporate ownership of the so-called “World Food Prize” and its goal to own the world food system with our OWFP Rally & Direct Action at the State Capitol building before the World Food Prize awards ceremony.
To this end, the DMCW community plans to close down our usual hospitality work to host fellow CWers and peace folks who come to DM for the Oct 15-16 events and need hospitality. A full list of events and happenings schedule for Oct 15 - 20 have yet to be nailed down. As details become more clear we will keep you posted. Right now we want as many as can to clear these days and make plans to join us in DM.
