The tree-sit began on Tuesday, 5/23. The farmers of South Central Farm extension to try to buy the land back from the developer expired 5/24.

Our peaceful "resistance to eviction encampment" faces imminent possibility of forced evacuation by the LA sheriff's department.

FRIDAY night, May 26

Please come out and see the farm TONIGHT for a Reggae Show and Vigil –

It is unbelievable and the energy is on fire right now. It is open to the public now and hopefully 'til the end of time if we can protect it through our actions and with your support.

Live Reggae Show & Jam

FRIDAY May 26, 2006

For further information, see http://www.southcentralfarmers.com
or contact Fernando Flores, (909) 605-3136 or John
Quigley at 310-927-3013

PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS EMAIL FREELY to all your friends and lists, post it on weblogs and myspace and anywhere you deem fit.
Spreading the word is key to helping this place survive – which
incidentally will take a miracle of love. Your connections and ideas are precious.

This is the very definition of grass roots.


We encourage you to come out AT ANY TIME especially over the Memorial Day weekend to visit this remarkable oasis. We have lovely vigils every night at 7:00 pm with some sort of entertainment to follow. We occasionally have open mike during the day, too!

Bring your instruments.

and GRATEFULLY accepted, from on-ground logistics to at-home media distribution support to performers and especially with
fundraising efforts. Our media team consists of 3 people and we would love some help!!!

We haven't even contacted magazines and the big environmental groups yet.

We have raised, with the generous help of our Mayor, nearly half of the funds needed. A little over 8 million dollars more is needed NOW to save the farm. Every dollar given will demonstrate how much the people of LA and nationwide feel about preserving livable space in our cities.

Help save the nation's largest urban farm, South Central Farm.

By showing your support, you can preserve an organic farm to save 14 acres of beautiful land in the heart of LA. The SOUTH CENTRAL FARM helps the area's less fortunate survive by growing food for their families and farmer's markets as well as providing a safe area for their children to play and experience nature.

There has been a 70% crime rate decrease in the area
since the farm was created. 350 poverty-level families currently farm the land at South Central Farm.

The farm, founded in 1993 as a grant from Mayor Tom
Bradley to area farmers, is an oasis housing 500 trees and a
burgeoning population of birds and butterflies in the middle of what can honestly be called downtown LA's concrete and environmental wasteland.

Julia Butterfly Hill, Daryl Hannah, Joan Baez and artist activist John Quigley are staging an ongoing tree-sit on-site to protest the sale of the farm to a major area developer. Forced evacuation by the Los Angeles sheriff's department is imminent.

Fundraiser: $1 or as much as you can give! If every man, woman and child in LA were to give only 1 dollar, we could save the farm. The farmers are trying to buy it back from the developer who with his asking price of 16.3 million will more than triple his investment of $5 million made only 1 year ago.
