Park Slope Food Co-op or Hunger Network NYC- should help us and get on
board....We should also pass a consensus against genetically modified
or pesticidal foods--against Monsanto Bill recently signed by Obama.
Furthermore, we need to establish self-sustainable networks of
permanence--so that other occupations, in bronx, or brooklyn, or
queens, poor people can obtain affordable healthy food. We need to
build a strong network of local organic farming practice--alternative
affordable economies. If park slope co-op will give us a hand,
great!!! but i suspect and may be wrong, that they are a for-profit
business despite all the hype. There are local CSAs and networks of
grassroot activists who could help us become independent-- so we can
co-operate with local farmers directly for long term self sufficiency.
If we succeed, we become less a movement or an occupation, but a real
solution to problems of poverty and illness plaguing our cities.
