Fall begins and brings a chill in the air. The care free warm days will be fewer and fewer as the weeks go by. Nature will offer 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 meet 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/1478743282389863/

Dear Friends, On Monday, September 29 at 5 pm, the Detroit Board of Education will hold a special meeting at Renaissance High School in Detroit to mark the end of the 18-month period of Emergency Management under PA 436. The meeting will open with the debut of a new 30-minute film by NYC filmmaker Kate Levy entitled Because They Could: The Fight for Oakman School. Levy's film documents a primary example of the destructiveness of state-imposed Emergency Management in Detroit. Despite parents’ success in exposing the falsity of every claim used to justify the school’s closure, Governor Snyder’s Emergency Manager still closed the school. The showing will feature comments by Oakman parent leader Aliya Moore. We hope you can make it. Best, Tom` http://www.facebook.com/events/1542499899299234/

We are experiencing militarization both in the United States and in Latin America. The SOA/WHINSEC, located at Ft. Benning, Georgia, is a major factor in the militarization of the Americas, leaving a trail of blood and suffering in every country where its graduates have returned. Police departments across our country have also become excessively militarized. A year-long investigation found that not only has policing become excessively militarized, but this militarization has occurred with almost no oversight. Let’s discuss the militarization in the Americas, in Latin America and right here at home in our own police departments. Come hear two powerful speakers address the devastating impact on our communities. They will talk about the connection between SOA violence, U.S. militarization, forced migration and the recent outcomes of the local militarized police force, such as the recent actions in Ferguson, Missouri. Where: UAW Local 140, 23345 Pinewood St Warren, MI 48091. When: Wednesday October 8th Time: 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm Topics and special guest speakers ●Special guest speaker Father Roy Bourgeois has been a priest since 1972 and is best known for his work with the School of the Americas Watch (SOA Watch), a nonviolent organization that exposes the U.S.-based school, once called School of the Americas, and its role in training Latin American soldiers in repressive tactics and deploying them throughout the region. Union organizers are among the primary targets of SOA violence. SOA graduates have been directly responsible for the killing of striking workers and union organizers throughout Latin America. ●Special guest speaker Ron Scott is a Detroit initiator of Peace Zones for Life and has more than 40 years of experience in activism as well as radio, television, and video production. As President of Ron Scott Media Solutions, he is an Emmy Award-winning producer and serves as spokesperson for the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality, part of a national effort to end police brutality with members in 30 cities, which is engaged in a continuing effort to end brutality while transforming the culture of the Detroit Police Department. ●Mobilization and recruitment for the 2014 SOA Vigil and labor caucus. Educate. Activate. Mobilize. See you at the gates this November 21-23! Come to Georgia with us. Save the date. Get on the bus.

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/

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.
