"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 and will help us cover the costs of hosting and organizing this event. Thank you! 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"

GATHER OUTSIDE CHASE BANK, WOODWARD AND FORT STREET, and MARCH TO GREEKTOWN FROM DETROIT TO GREECE, SAY NO TO THE WAR ON THE WORKING CLASS! CANCEL THE DEBT STOP PENSION CUTS, FORECLOSURES AND WATER SHUTOFFS Austerity in Greece has meant conditions much like those faced by Detroiters: A poverty rate of 44%, up from just 3% in 2009; a 27.7% unemployment rate; and 240,000 people with their utilities shut off. But in response to these conditions, Syriza was elected to office in Greece on a promise to end the austerity imposed on the working class by the banks and the Troika (the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund). U.S. financial institutions have swindled huge profits off the backs of the people of Greece, Detroit and around the world. In its first day in office, Syriza announced the following measures to ease the suffering of the masses: •Halting of privatization schemes; •Reinstating pensions; •Reintroducing of the monthly minimum wage; •Scrapping of fees for prescriptions and hospital visits; •Restoring collective work agreements; •Rehiring workers laid off in the public sector; •Giving free access to food and electricity to the victims of the bailout; and •Granting citizenship to migrant children born and raised in Greece. Aren’t these the kind of things we need in Detroit?! The banks and their capitalist allies are now trying to economically strangle Greece, refusing to renegotiate the loans and threatening to cut off Greece from the international market. All over the world workers are demonstrating their solidarity with the people of Greece. It’s time to draw the line against the criminal banksters and to say PEOPLE come before profits. We’ll beat them back in Greece and across the world, and reverse the attacks on Detroiters imposed by emergency management and the state in service to the banks. Initiated by Moratorium NOW!

We show up on an abandoned lot in the morning with a team of volunteers, materials and transplants and when we leave in the evening there's a living garden in the wake. Volunteers and contributors needed. Fundraising starts now. We need about $1000 total and we're already about one third there from pledges and donations already made. We have about three months to raise the rest of the funds. If you'd like to contribute to this community project, contact Sean Marshall Fotograffiti or Dottie Shepherd Harris Things needed. $400 lumber for six 3'x9' raised beds. $150 IBC tank & water catchment system $250 compost delivery $100 weed block matting $50 screws $50 seeds http://www.facebook.com/events/419374378216323/

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.

The Governor and conservative politicians are all abuzz about "rebuilding Michigan," however, this grand plan appears to be based mainly on efforts to crush labor, disenfranchise voters, oppress identities, pillage the environment, and disperse low income communities. We believe that as students and young people we must fight for a new vision for our state. Following our semester strategy meeting, the Michigan Student Power Network has decided to call for a statewide March on Lansing this March 26th. As the future of Michigan we will demand a state that is not only economically strong, but egalitarian and just. We're in the process of compiling a list of 10 concrete demands: policies that could be enacted tomorrow to make Michigan better; and 5 visionary demands: detailing what we want our state to work towards contribute your ideas by the 14th of February! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1FG-3iLMccS_cNCegtgQyp6WpMlDAEIYVBVAjdMNHkqI/viewform 11:30am arrival (staging location TBD) 12pm March http://www.facebook.com/events/317631378436433/
