Moo Cluck Moo
Paying their workers $15 an hour is already a good reason to buy your next chemically-free moo burger or notorious cluck sandwich from Moo Cluck Moo. Now, even better, you can help a socially-responsible company do well and possibly help a social justice organization continue to do good. From now until April 27, 2014 when you're done making your purchase of a flash fried cluck or a grilled cluck sandwich with sea salt french fries or veggie salad and a high-fructose-free Northwoods soda pop (all for just $5.00) at MCM on Sundays, tell the clerk you are with Jobs with Justice. The top five organizations with the most Sunday Chicken visits will receive a $200 donation from the only fast-food restaurant (so far) that pays its workers a living wage and cares for the community.

Fellow Anons & Weed Consumers Everywhere: Ever since Marijuana was deemed a Schedule I controlled substance, the lengthy prohibition of the plant became part of an oppressive & ill-conceived effort to wholly eradicate our country's illicit drug trade, otherwise known as the "War On Drugs". What has such a tactic brought forth upon us all? -It has led to the United States incarcerating a disproportionate amount of people strongly divided between racial & economic lines. -It has led to prison overcrowding, as a majority of nonviolent weed offenders serve prison time for possession of nominal amounts of weed, needlessly criminalizing a large demographic of people. -It has proliferated the legal practice of Mandatory Minimum Sentencing, which ensures nonviolent weed offenders are given long & unfair sentences for arbitrary reasons. -It prevents certain individuals who have convictions for Marijuana possession & other weed related offenses from obtaining student loans & other financial assistance for higher education. -It perpetuates a culture of fear & suspicion between Law Enforcement & the citizenry, as well as fueling rampant civil rights violations regarding the 4th Amendment. (Stop & Frisk, et al.) It is for these reasons, as well as the sudden shift in public support for ending Marijuana Prohibition, that any & all Anons, Anti-Prohibition activists, common Marijuana consumers & people of conscience must take to the streets on April 20, 2014 to demand an end to the unreasonable & destructive prohibition of a plant that has repeatedly shown medicinal properties, as well as a higher level of safety in comparison to Alcohol & other controlled substances. Please pass the information of this protest far & wide; never before have the sentiments of the American people shifted towards support of Marijuana Legalization. Many thanks, and I hope to see everyone protesting this important issue. We Are Anonymous. We Are Legion. We Do Not Forgive. We Do Not Forget.

**Please help us spread the word about the #StopStaples National Day of Action** APWU local unions are organizing events throughout the country to protest the sweetheart deal between the USPS and Staples that puts postal retail operations in Staples stores — and staffs them with low-wage, high-turnover Staples employees. Mark your calendars now. The best way to defend living-wage jobs and public postal services is to keep this dirty deal in the public eye. Our protests have already received news coverage nationwide – now it’s your turn to help spread the word. It’s easy – just three steps. Are you ready? Forward this email to 10 people right now and ask them to sign the petition at StopStaples.com If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, [click here to share](http://afl.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=gcNY2zuCgSu5s0a9lLA2C%2B6RFm%2BgW3uh) or [click here to tweet](http://afl.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=3zrtuNqO2OKkPe68AaPVhe6RFm%2BgW3uh) Text POSTAL to 91990 to receive the latest updates – then forward them to your coworkers That’s it. If everyone reading this takes those three steps, we’ll have thousands more people sending messages to Staples and signing up to join the campaign. It’s critical that we keep building momentum. We can’t give Staples’ bosses a moment’s rest until they meet our demand: Use U.S. Postal Workers to do U.S. postal work.

Folks...the 4th. monthly People's Potluck dinner of 2014 will be on Thursday April 24th. beginning at 5:00 P.M. Please bring your favorite dish to pass. Darryl (Waistline) Mitchell will be back from California to discuss his Marxist Glossary. He will have copies available for purchase. We will also have some representatives from a May Day committee to tell us about plans for a massive action. In March we had the largest attended Potluck dinner in our history with over 130 women, men and children breaking bread with each other. The dinner was dedicated to the freeing of the Enbridge-3. and the celebration of the life of our fallen comrade, Rakiba Brown. Barbara Carter, Vicci Hamlin and Lisa Lala Leggio were sentenced to time served (34 days), 13 months probation and $46,000 in fees. We raised over $800 in cash and pledges towards their defense. Many friends celebrated the life of Rakiba Brown who we recently lost. Her passing has been a real shock for our community. The family is planning a memorial for Rakiba tentatively planned for May 3rd. at Central Methodist Church. We will keep everyone informed. I am afraid we did create havoc with the parking at Central Methodist Church with an unexpected overflow crowd. We promised to resolve these problems in the future. Many thanks to the folks there who allow us to utilize their facilities. With participants involved in so many activities we can discuss them and future plans. Lets hear from folks involved with protesting Bankruptcy, EFM, Foreclosure, Eviction Defense, DCATS, RTW, Climate Change, Immigration Reform and more. Please mark your calendars, share on your timelines and sign in. Get out the word to your friends and neighbors. We provide child care so you can bring your children. We welcome the Committee to Ban Fracking in Michigan and The Legal Education and Advocacy Center as new sponsors of the Potluck dinner. Presently the dinner is sponsored by Occupy Detroit, The Legal Education and Advocacy Center, Committee to Ban Fracking in Michigan, Critical Moment, Moratorium Now, Thornbladh Legal Group PLLC, Detroit Social Justice Ministry (Central United Methodist Church), Detroit Food Not Bombs, People's Tribune, Michigan Welfare Rights Organization, Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management, Hush House, The Wobbly Kitchen, The Green Party of Michigan, Detroit LIght Brigade, League of Revolutionaries for a New America(LRNA), The Raging Grannies, Detroit Coalition Against Tar Sands (D-CATS), South Eastern Chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement, Phoenix Cafe, Institute for the Study of the Science of Society(ISSS), This Hood of Ours, Inc, Rally! Comrades, The People's Radical Discussion Group and more to follow. This is open to all progressive folks and their friends wishing to have some lively discussion around current events. Come and enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship. "It’s not enough to be out in the streets fighting for change. Revolutionaries must have a clear sense of how societies develop, how revolutions happen, what stages revolutions proceed through, what stage the process is in at the moment. Skilled revolutionaries see farther because they know the steps, the stages,and the process. Skilled revolutionaries see the road that the revolutionary movement must take to succeed–the line of march.These skills come from study." We will be on the 4th.

Brothers and Sisters: Have you heard about what Kellogg has done to workers in Memphis? Well here is the story -- Kellogg is a $14 billion dollar company that has been on a crusade to shrink its skilled workforce and replace good jobs with cheaper, disposable workers. The workers who make Frosted Flakes and Froot Loops in Memphis, TN. refused to accept their outrageous take-backs and found themselves locked out of their jobs when they showed up to work last October. While many working families missed the rest of the year’s paychecks—and continue to do so—Kellogg CEO John Bryant pocketed nearly $8 million in 2013 compensation. On Friday April 25, we are joining our Brothers and Sisters of BCTGM to send a strong message to Kellogg. We want Kellogg to know corporate disregard for workers, families and communities MUST STOP. Join us in the fight for good middle class jobs and preventing the exploitation of low-wage workers! If you would like to learn more about the Kellogg lockout please visit the url above.

Paying their workers $15 an hour is already a good reason to buy your next chemically-free moo burger or notorious cluck sandwich from Moo Cluck Moo. Now, even better, you can help a socially-responsible company do well and possibly help a social justice organization continue to do good. From now until April 27, 2014 when you're done making your purchase of a flash fried cluck or a grilled cluck sandwich with sea salt french fries or veggie salad and a high-fructose-free Northwoods soda pop (all for just $5.00) at MCM on Sundays, tell the clerk you are with Jobs with Justice. The top five organizations with the most Sunday Chicken visits will receive a $200 donation from the only fast-food restaurant (so far) that pays its workers a living wage and cares for the community.

Each April 28 unions around the world honor the lives lost and damaged by unsafe and unhealthy work. The 2014 Workers Memorial Day event in Detroit will be held Monday April 28th at Hart Plaza. Participants will wear black and hold a silent march and vigil. This year's theme is more redtape, fewer bloody bandages. The temping of work, weak OSHA, privatized government work, and Anti-worker Industrial Complex are dangerous to your health. We need more oversight. More regulation and enforcement. Not less. Please join us Tuesday February 11th for a meeting on Detroit Workers Memorial Day at the Jobs with Justice office in the Michigan Building #520 (220 Bagley); you know the one, it's got a parking lot in a movie theater.

Six moth long global systemic hackaton to take down the Prism, fascism, capitalism, imperialism, racism, sexism and war Meta-Strike will gather sys-admins, hackers, net-workers, knowledge workers and others to build a mass and mesh social network strikes, in order to target PRISM-NSA-Surveillance partnerships, and creators of Internet of Everything (IoT) FB, Google, Yahoo, MS, Apple, Skpye, Twitter, American Online, Intel, Foxconn and who else other involve. Initial idea has been to start building a networked online strike campaign at May Frist which will continue till November 5th, in order to merge cyber actions, hacks, user walk-outs from PRISM contractor web2.0 spaces, and mass and networked mobilizations forming worldwide wave of occupations, strikes, mobs, so on that have taken place around the world. Doing so we will introduce FLOSS tools and secure communication strategies to much wider public. One of our initial targets is to force corporations to accept handing off and de-commodification of the public data, and paying competences for the labour of the users/ contributors. We will also target massive corporate exploitation projects like Mechanical Turk of Amazon, Industrial Internet, as well as top 147 TNCs massing with the world economy.

March 7 & 8, April 4 & 5, and May 2 & 3, 2014 Doing Our Own Work is an intensive seminar for white people who seek to deepen their commitment to confronting and challenging racism and white privilege where they live, study, and work. It is our conviction that those of us who are white need to "do our own work" – educating ourselves, confronting racism, holding each other accountable, and demonstrating good faith as we seek to build genuine and lasting coalitions with people of color. Doing Our Own Work is designed as a supplement to, not a substitute for, contexts where people of diverse races discuss and strategize together how racism can be challenged. People from communities all across North America have taken part in this intensive seminar. Here is what some of those participants say about the experience: "Doing Our Own Work is life-changing. It has affected my choice of where to live, what do with my life, where my priorities lie, everything." "After attending Doing Our Own Work, I am much more willing to take risks as a white person when working alongside of, and in solidarity with, people of color." "Doing Our Own Work gave me a broader and deeper knowledge of anti-racism, white privilege, my people's history, and the way oppression functions." If you are a white person who is ready and eager to do some deep and soul-stretching work with other white anti-racist allies, Doing Our Own Work is the place for you! The seminar consists of more than 40 hours of "class time." Anti-racist action and reflection form the heart of Doing Our Own Work. Each participant is invited to identify a "sphere of influence" in her/his life that will serve as the focus of action and reflection. Utilizing input from the leaders, assigned readings, videos, group discussion, and structured exercises, participants explore the following topics and issues: The four realms of racism: personal, interpersonal, institutional, and cultural Historical roots of racism in the U.S. Movements for racial justice in the U.S. White privilege and unearned advantage How to be an effective anti-racist ally Cultural appreciation versus cultural appropriation Discerning our spiritual resources for change Practicing the skills of interrupting racism Strategies for institutional change The facilitators are committed to working with participants to create a respectful, loving, and truth-telling environment where we may bring our whole selves to this vitally important work. Dates: March 7 & 8, April 4 & 5, and May 2 & 3. Attendance at all six sessions is required. Facilitator Team: Melanie S. Morrison, Aaron Wilson-Ahlstrom, and Emily Joye McGaughy-Reynolds (bios). Facilities are barrier-free. Cost: $475 ($100 deposit and $375 balance due). The balance may be paid in installments extending beyond the close of the seminar. The cost includes program, materials, and lunch for all six days. Partial scholarships are available. Enrollment limited to 16 participants. For information about the seminar or about partial scholarships, contact Melanie Morrison. To Be Placed on Waiting List: THIS SEMINAR IS FULL. To be added to the waiting list, please submit a registration and $100 deposit. If an opening does not become available, your deposit will be refunded.

If you would like to bring a dish or help out please contact Kandi Hamilton "Oh Rakiba. You were, with me, almost equal parts sharp and cutting, and warm, soft, and loving. You sugar-coated nothing, conceded rarely, and loved fully. I knew when I got a hug from you (and you were a fantastic hugger for a lady that never minded cutting folks down to size, haha!) that you meant it, and it was real, and your biting retorts and jabs made your immense well-spring of tenderness all the more powerful and generous. You never, never, shied away from speaking your truth. And similarly, you never missed an opportunity to extend real compassion, in the moments when you could do so honestly and without inhibition. THAT is love, YOU are love, and I will never be the same for having met you, struggled WITH you and ALONGSIDE you, and been granted the tremendous opportunity and gift to hear your voice, and thoughts, and through those, the undercurrent of your song, which you sang out with such strength and sureness and beauty. You changed me, and taught me, and brought me (sometimes kicking and screaming), just a little bit closer to truth and light. And so today, is a terribly sad day, a day of great loss. There's a Rakiba-shaped hole in the world and my heart, and that's a mighty hole indeed, and since nothing and no one is shaped quite like you, it's not a hole that can be filled. It's not the first time you've made me cry Rakiba, and it won't be the last I bet, and I love you. And I love that you were HERE, and always will be, on this planet, in this time, in such an indelible, TRUTHFUL, powerful way. You are a woman I will always look up to, now I just have to look up a little higher. Rest in power Rakiba, you are so loved, and for just exactly who you are. You are, were, always will be... tremendous. Thank you. For never once trying to hide it. Thank you for you." Emma Howland-Bolton "Rakiba Brown was an activist involved in the Occupy Detroit movement from it's inception in October of 2011. She could be loving and disagreeable at the same time. But you always ended up with a hug and feeling better about yourself after any discussion. This tribute by Emma Howland Bolton appeared on her Facebook page after learning of her death. Emma Howland Bolton was also a founder of Occupy Detroit and is a teacher in the Detroit Public School system."

The event page for Operation Human Angel: Help The Homeless. The goal is pretty simple. We want to help as many homeless and less fortunate people across Metro Detroit as we possibly can. We can make that happen with your help. Your donations and you guys spreading the word will make this a big success and ultimately help a lot of people that need a lot of help. This is a three step process. First we want to raise funds so that we can purchase essential things for the homeless. Once we purchase the items, we will make care packages and pass them out on May 17th all across Metro Detroit to the homeless. You can donate at our Go Fund Me page at http://www.gofundme.com/ophumanangels. 100% will go towards this project and we prove it on May 17th! Second part of this project is a food and clothing drive. Starting in March we will drive around each Sunday and pick up clothing and food you would like to donate so we can also pass them out on the big day. Please we ask you donate water bottles and portable food. Food that can be eaten without having to be cooked. Any clothing is accepted except of course any used underwear. We plan on purchasing underwear and socks, along with other essential items with the donation money. The goal is to provide essential care packages to homeless people across Metro Detroit. Together we can do this! PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROJECT IS LASTING FROM TODAY TO MAY 17TH. WE WILL COLLECT DONATIONS STARTING TODAY THROUGH THE 17TH OF MAY AND ALSO START COLLECTING CLOTHES AND FOOD IN MARCH. THIS IS WILL BE AN EFFORT THAT TAKES MONTHS SO WE CAN HELP COLLECT MORE TO HELP MORE PEOPLE. http://www.facebook.com/events/609785452427459/

Lyndon Township, located in northwestern Washtenaw County, Michigan, has received an application from McCoig Materials, Inc. for a special land use permit to operate a sand and gravel mine on property that is zoned rural residential. The proposed mining site is surrounded by public recreation lands (view map). It is adjacent to the Waterloo and Pinckney State Recreation Areas and Washtenaw County's Park Lyndon. The Waterloo-Pinckney Trail runs along the boundary of the proposed site. It is across from Green Lake and the Green Lake Campground. These public spaces are enjoyed year-round by local, regional and in-state residents as well as out-of-state tourists. ​ The proposed mine would operate for 22 to 30 years 6 days a week . 60 to 80 tandem-trailer gravel trucks would make round trips to and from the proposed mine daily. This would result in an additional truck traveling on Main Street through the heart of Chelsea every 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Two public meetings were held by the Township in February and March, 2014 to inform citizens about the special use permit application process and allow the public to voice their opinions. There was overwhelming opposition to the mine at both meetings and the second one drew over 600 people, with local Chelsea resident and celebrity Jeff Daniels joining the voices to speak out against it. We are encouraging every citizen to voice their opinion because every voice counts! McCoig has also submitted a permit application to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). ​The DEQ also needs to hear from citizens about negative impacts to wetlands and inland lakes and streams within and surrounding the proposed mining operation site. A public hearing is planned but the date is not yet set. When you submit your comments to the DEQ, they will put you on a mailing list for the public hearing.

The fight for our food continues!! Genetically engineered (GE/GMO) foods are required to be labeled in over 60 countries around the world, and are banned in varying degrees in U.K., Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Hungary, Kenya and others. Yet, in the United States, GMOs are riddled throughout our public food supply without our knowledge ~ and millions are being spent to defeat initiatives that simply ask to label GMO food. Monsanto is one of the worst offenders. • Using our 1st Amendment right of free speech to lie to us by omission. • Suing American farmers into bankruptcy if Monsanto’s seeds blow into their fields; • Driving thousands of farmers in India to suicide, just to pay their debt to Monsanto; • Buying corrupt politicians to do their bidding in Congress; • And now, secretly slipping legislation into a budget bill that gives Monsanto the ability to ignore court injunctions that would stop the planting of GE crops which are deemed potentially dangerous to public health. It's time to shed light on these secretive and strong arm tactics by standing together and marching against Monsanto! Please join your community in this worldwide march. http://www.facebook.com/events/227962834021991/

Senate Theater
RoboCop, 1987 directed by Paul Verhoeven starring Peter Weller and Nancy Allen "In a dystopic and crime-ridden Detroit, a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories." 26 years after it's release, RoboCop remains a classic. With all of the rapid changes in Detroit, there are many angles to the conversation about progress. RoboCop provides a relevant allegory. Come enjoy a film in the neighborhood. Come watch the 1987 cult classic at Detroit's beautiful Senate Theatre; home of the Wurlitzer organ that belonged to the Fisher theatre for decades. The Detroit Theatre Organ Society salvaged the organ when the Fisher theatre closed in 1960 and gave it a home in the newly remodeled Senate Theatre. In the heart of Southwest Detroit, the Senate theatre boasts a beautiful (and yes slightly macabre) atmosphere. Open from 1926-1955, the theatre witnessed a series of ups and downs, from immense popularity to a time of limited showings of horror and x-rated films. It was reopened in 1962 and has continued to be a fixture for the arts in Detroit. If you have never been, this will be a great time for you to experience the gem that is the Senate and support Detroit's oldest independant film theatre. Tickets $10. This is a fundraiser to elect Democratic Party candidate Elena Herrada to represent Detroit, Ecorse and River Rouge in the Sixth District of the Michigan House of Representatives. Veteran grassroots activist, Herrada currently serves on the Detroit Public School Board. Herrada has faught staunchly against Emergency Management. As State Representative, she promises to fight for equal education, the restoration of rights to Detroiters, jobs for youth, protection of pensions and fight against the privatization of public resources. For more information visit Elena Herrada for Representative- 6th District http://www.facebook.com/events/1411237955807855/
