Winter is just a month long and the chill is setting in. The line seemed to slow last time with some reluctant to venture out in the cold. We waited a little longer to make sure people were taken care of. That doesn't always mean this time will be the same, but keep that in mind as you prepare your food. The needs remain the same for a warm hearty meal, some warm clothing, the necessities for people personal hygiene and some love and attention. We will continue to do what we can to look out for our Friends. Remember we are guests in the Park and we want to leave it better than when we came. Looking forward to another Sunday in the Park. http://www.facebook.com/events/775868482494923/

That's right, folks. After a short library hiatus while the crumbling theater wall was replaced, we are ready to move forward with re-opening the Trumbullplex ZineLibrary for regular hours! BUT FIRST.... we've got some work to do. Drop in on Sunday, January 25th from 2pm to 8pm at Trumbullplex to assist us in cleaning out the library storage, archiving the newspaper backlogs, and re-organizing the zines on display so that we can once again have a functional zine library for everyone to enjoy. We can use all the hands we can get! Dress warm! The tplex theater is pretty cold. We are also looking for donations of: small comfy furniture for reading zines on, a small rug for the reading nook, and possibly some storage bins/organizers for keeping all our archives nice and tidy! http://www.facebook.com/events/789638154449247/

We will be having speakers and discussion around the topic, to relate revolutionary leaders of the era to the new revolutionary movement growing today among the exploited and oppressed in the United States, namely young black and brown revolutionary youth at the forefront of the movement. "The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 is a 2011 documentary film, directed by Göran Olsson, that examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement in American society from 1967 to 1975. It features the found footage shot by a group of Swedish journalists (discovered some 30 years later in the cellar of Swedish Television) overlaid with commentaries and interviews from leading contemporary African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars. The footage includes appearances by Stokely Carmichael, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Eldridge Cleaver, Bobby Seale, Huey P. Newton, Emile de Antonio, Angela Davis and commentaries by Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Harry Belafonte, Kathleen Cleaver, Angela Davis, Robin Kelley and Abiodun Oyewole, amongst others." http://www.facebook.com/events/753220274765343/

Let's come together again to show Solidarity with rallies taking place all over the US and abroad over the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Aiyana Jones, Tamir Rice (and so many more we don't hear about) and let them know we haven't gone anywhere! Exact location to be announced on day of the event. Dress warm and tell a friend! ***Many people do not realize Southeastern Michigan holds the largest Native American population in the state. According to national estimates, over seventy percent of Native American people no longer live on reservations. The majority of those live in urban settings...Detroit was home to the Anishinabeg / People of The Three Fires - Ojibwa - Potawatomi, the Ottawa, and a vibrant gathering place for many other tribes....*** http://www.facebook.com/events/1577301512498821/

"The Community Rights Movement: A Grassroots Strategy to Protect our Climate" An original talk by Paul Cienfuegos, a leader in the Community Rights Movement Monday, February 23 Sabathani Community Center Auditorium, 310 East 38th Street, South Minneapolis. 5:30 - 6:30pm: Arrival and networking / social time 6:30-7:30pm: Talk by Paul Cienfuegos, including 60 minutes for Q&A Tickets: Suggested sliding scale donation $5-$20. Larger donations are welcome! Description of the talk: "The Community Rights Movement: A Grassroots Strategy to Protect our Climate" Climate Change is real, and our state and federal governments are not responding. Fossil fuel projects, backed by big money, continue to be approved by our elected officials. Why are we limited to protests and public hearings to protect our communities? Do the regulatory agencies even take our concerns into consideration when making their decisions? In this talk, Paul Cienfuegos will introduce the Community Rights movement, review why Minnesota structures of law make it so difficult for residents to protect their communities from corporate harm, and outline how We the People of Minnesota can breathe new life into civic engagement by reclaiming the structures of law that have made real democracy impossible until now. The Community Rights movement offers a bold solution for protecting our right to a livable climate, a just society, and a sustainable future through the creation of locally-enforceable, rights-based laws. These laws strip corporations of their so-called constitutional "rights", ban harmful corporate activities, and enshrine the right of a community to govern itself. Community Rights recognizes and enforces the inherent power and rights of local communities to protect themselves against harmful corporate practices. This strategy can be applied toward protection of clean water, earth, and air, the right to safe and just labor conditions, sustainable development, and more. Community Rights works by creating local ordinances that affirm what communities DO want, rather than fighting unwanted projects and practices one at a time. Community Rights is a national movement. Since 1999, locally-enforceable rights-based laws have been passed by over 200 communities in 9 states. Community Rights is a non-partisan, unifying movement, including people from all sides of the political spectrum. “We the People” do have the authority to pass laws that serve the people and the planet. Let's get organized! About the speaker: Paul Cienfuegos is a leader in the Community Rights movement, which works to dismantle corporate constitutional so-called “rights” and assert the people's inherent right to govern themselves. He has been leading workshops, giving public talks, and organizing local communities since 1995 when he founded Democracy Unlimited in northern California. Since 2011, he has lived in Portland, Oregon, where he co-founded CommunityRightsPDX.org, and helped establish the Oregon Community Rights Network which launched in 2013. His talks have been broadcast nationally on David Barsamian's show, 'Alternative Radio'. He recently launched a weekly radio commentary that any station can broadcast at no charge.

Judge Schrock finally set a date for the hearing on the 4 motions: (1) deals with direct verdict (2) juror lied under oath about her connection with county clerk Sharon Tyler (3) resentencing to correct an invalid sentence (4) appeal bond pending motions. Mark your calendars. "I am now in Marquette prison over 15 hours from wife & family, sitting in prison for a crime that was never committed. Judge Schrock & Mike Sepic both admitted there was no evidence against me but now I sit in prison facing 30 months. Schrock actually stated that he wanted to make an example out of me. (to scare Benton Harbor residents even more...) ONLY IN AMERICA. I now have an army to help fight Berrien County. When I arrived at Jackson state prison on Dec. 15, I met several hundred people from Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo, & Grand Rapids. Some people recognized me. There was an outstanding amount of support given by the prison inmates. When I was transported to Marquette Prison it took 2 days. The prisoners knew who I was. One of the guards looked me up on the internet and said, "who would believe Berrien County is this racist." -Rev. Edward Pinkney"

This is a very fun, unique and cool annual spring celebration in the 'D. The Marche du Nain Rouge has its roots in Detroit’s early history, when Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac founded Detroit and was confronted by the Nain Rouge (Red Devil). He purportedly hit the Nain Rouge with his cane and became cursed for life. Since then, the Nain Rouge has been spotted throughout Detroit’s 300 year history, usual at / during the D's most notorious occurrences. The Nain Rouge has been a harbinger of doom since the time of Detroit's founder. At this annual fun event - all of us as Detroiters banish the Nain for another year! “The idea with the Marche was to tap into Detroit's rich history and use the Nain Rouge story as a way for Detroiters to come together in common purpose,” said Francis Grunow, co-creator of the Marche. “Of course it's supposed to be silly and fun, but it's also supposed to be positive and meaningful.” This mardi-gras carnival-esque festival and parade features many people dressing up in costumes and mardi-gras masks to represent the effigy they want to shed or just to enjoy in the fun of the day. The 'D: A city and region filled with culture and fun and cool things to do - get up and get out and proclaim and defned the 'D! Parade/ March: 1:00 pm from the Traffic Jam & Snug - Wayne State Campus. EVERYONE who attends gets to march in the parade to the Masonic Temple when the Nain is banished and an after-celebration takes place within the Masonic itself.
