Gratitude is what we receive from those we share with. Gratitude is also what we give to those who make it possible for us to share with others I am full of gratitude for the support we have received from the community that stands behind us in our desire to look out for others. Thank You is still too small of a word, but that is all I can say right now. Thank You to everyone that makes this possible. Fall is settling in and now there is a chill is really in the air. The care free warm days will become a memory as the weeks go by and the trees lose their leaves. Nature is offering us a show of color and it's own beauty, but for those without homes or a warm place to rest, these days have different message. The new arena has broken ground and for some it signals new and better things to come. For our Friends it is just another chill in the air of changes, that they may not be welcome in their own neighborhood. The needs remain the same and the uncertainty of the changing neighborhood remains the same. The best we can do is stay the course and bring some relief to our Friends. So we continue to gather twice a month in Cass Park at 11:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Sunday to share a meal, some necessities, some clean ready to wear clothing and some Friendship. The invitation is open to any and all within reach of this post to come with food in hand for others, willing hands to help or an empty belly to be filled. It is a great mix of people with something in common We are guests in Cass Park so we will do our best to keep it clean and taken care of for the community around it. http://www.facebook.com/events/727347000690774/

We, the Hernandez-Acosta family, are aiming to have a space where the SW Detroit community can sell their "Cositas/Little things" whether it is art, clothing, household goods, etc. This is a fundraiser to benefit the St. Peter's Soup Kitchen which services thousands of homeless every year with one simple need: food. This is a community-based initiative and totally grassroots, we intentionally did this as our family has been in service of the SW community for many generations. Our other hope is to build a Ofrenda dedicada a los pobres, olvidados y perdidos/ Altar dedicated to the Poor, Lost and Forgotten. As we see bones emerge of unknown community members, homeless found in the train station frozen, or other terrible stories, we want to dedicate this altar to their memory. It will be located outside the market. for more information or if you would like to rent a table, contact us at: cositasmercado@gmail.com

The upcoming holidays for most is a time of great joy and celebration. For some, for many reasons, it's a time of sadness and going without. This year we can change this for some. Please join our 15 can challenge - it's simple and easy to do. 1. Every week when you do your groceries, purchase one extra item. It could be a can or something non perishable. eg soup, baked beans etc 2. Collect one item each week for the next fifteen weeks. 3. Drop them off to the charity of your choice, first week in December to various places in your neighborhood. 4.Invite as many of your friends as you can - remember together we can change someone's life Many communities will benefit. All Food Pantries and Charities, will greatly appreciate any and all donations. It is your gift to give, we are simply attempting to source charities in great NEED. http://www.facebook.com/events/729770090391859/

All around the world from Detroit, Ferguson, to Ukraine, the capitalist class is on the assault. Whether they're shutting down schools, cutting food stamps, shooting unarmed people in our streets, or dropping bombs on innocent people abroad; they've made it clear that there's only one thing they want: everything! Capitalism has proven itself to be a system based on nothing more than profit and does not consider human needs. They've put the squeeze on us, it's time we rise up and put the squeeze on them! A job is a right! Food is a right! Education is a right! No more military interventions! http://www.facebook.com/events/315461158579261/

Calling all of Occupy to open arms in 2014 and to embrace our ideals to the fullest. We will encompass our communities, outreach toward youth, and work alongside our allies. Together we call for justice. Together we can make strides toward a system beholden to the people. We seek: an end to unwarranted surveillance and a right to privacy, an end to corporate control of government, and the restoration of our voices in the political arena. We are opposed to war, war drones, killing and call for peaceful solutions instead. We oppose the polluting and destruction of our planet. We will stand against wage and debt slavery. We demand Wall Street be held accountable and be taxed. We stand firm in support of the rights of women, men, children, indigenous peoples, the elderly, workers, LGBT people, special needs, the poor, exploited, and the disadvantaged. We see the path that the world is on and it is unsustainable. We will work with new modalities that support independence from a failed “stacked against us” system. We will foster freedom from materialism and encourage sharing, communal and urban gardening, re-use, and sticking to essentials. We promote respect for the planet and all its beings. We call for guaranteed minimum revenue for all physical persons, food sovereignty, food justice, accessible and honestly affordable healthcare, and freedom from student loan debt. We honor those activists, whistle-blowers, humanitarians, that have fought for freedom and human rights before us. The raping of our planet and its resources to benefit the 1% is an abomination that can’t stand. We will fight disparity and support actions that clothe, feed, and house humanity. As we watch our rights and freedoms infringed upon, we will mobilize a defense. We have the strength and unity of vision to carry us through the coming challenges. If you heed the call to Occupy and to recommit to our core values in 2014 and beyond, then join us and make your voices heard! For all our trials and tribulations, Occupy remains the best and brightest, hope to restore dignity. In 2014 we open our arms to you and ask you to join us! This is a year long event to rally each other to continue throughout the year to Occupy. (not a specific single day but everyday in ways we can. Dec 31rst is placed above as way to keep the post active all year long) http://www.facebook.com/events/200413986818410/
