URGENT! As of 1pm, farm supporters are being dragged out of the farm and arrested for practicing civil disobedience to stop the bulldozers. Community members needed at farm to witness and stop this injustice!
URGENT: Supporters needed at South Central Farm, 41st and Alameda, Los Angeles!
As of 1pm today, multiple activists have been extracted from inside the farm where they were practicing civil disobedience to stop the bulldozers. Hired security guards inside the farm are working with police to keep activists out. There have been multiple arrests, including at least one minor from the community who was violently thrown onto the concrete by security before being aprehended. Several women were also arrested. Police in squad cars and on bikes continue to arrive. Half of the farm has been destroyed.
WHY SHOULD THIS MATTER TO YOU?
1)This farm is a sanctuary and a safe space for families and children.
2)This farm is a source of local, organically grown food for the community (and the 350 farming families that will now go without food). That means no oil, coal, or gas is used to bring these crops to people. We are talking about sustainable, subsistence farming that should be encouraged, not obliterated.
3)This farm is 14 acres of green space in a city of concrete and chemicals. In a world where urban sprawl destroys thousands of miles of open spaces a year, and in a city where the lawmakers have promised "the greening of LA," we should all defend the farm as an example of what we should be doing in much larger scale in cities across the nation.
4) Farmers have not yet been let into the farm to take out SACRED RELIGIOUS OBJECTS, which are being bulldozed AS YOU READ THIS. Other posessions, including tools, CROPS, and irreplacable heirloom seeds are also about to be destroyed.
5)La tierra es de quien la trabaja: The land belongs to those who work it. Over 14 years, the South Central Farmers transformed a concrete covered lot littered with garbage into a beautiful, productive, green oasis. Are we going to let one man take it all away now?
SUPPORTERS ARE NEEDED:
How can you help?
*Go to the farm! On your way, call everyone you know! Tell them to call everyone THEY know! Announce it on your radio show! Post it on your myspace! Bring your organization!
*If you have a CAMERA or a VIDEOCAMERA, you are urgently needed to go to the farm and help duccument the injustices that are happening.
*If you were there when the eviction happened, you are needed now! We must maintain a strong presence on the perimiter! Hundreds of people showed up to protest the eviction. Where are you today? Call your friends! Go to the farm!
*Donations are needed for legal support for the activists that were and continue to be arrested today. Anything you can give will help!
