Attention everyone – this is important.
You may or may not know that Sakuma Farms has recently cut off its negotiations with striking migrant workers. As one of the primary victims of industrial civilization, these men and women need our support; the mistreatment of agricultural workers lies at the intersection of multiple disgusting power structures, including but not limited to the economic exploitation of the indigenous, violence against women, and ecological devastation. Securing the rights and safety of migrant workers is central to the fight against the corporate system.
I am planning on going down to their action camp outside of Burlington tomorrow before or after work to discuss what I can do to show support and solidarity. I would very much appreciate any support in the matter. Please do let me know if you’d be interested. Unless they are forcibly evicted from their camp, striking workers will still be around this weekend, when I plan to go again. Please let me know if you would be interested in coming with me to show solidarity or helping to purchase toilet paper, water, and other essentials for the camp. Thank you.
I receive the paycheck from my abortive, two-week-long career at Target this weekend, and will use a small portion of it to print posters to put up around town. Please let me know if you’d be interested in helping me out, either by suggesting spots or helping on the ground. Thank you very much!
“All biological males benefit from patriarchy. No internal identity or emotional state can change the material reality of those benefits. Only changing the material conditions—ending patriarchy—can end those benefits.”
Many activists in my area have asked questions about DGR’s positions on gender, specifically transgender and queer movements, and I believe the DGR Radical Feminism FAQ will help clarify these points for anyone who is unfamiliar or uncomfortable with radical feminist notions of gender. Anyone else who is interested in DGR but has further questions should not hesitate to call or otherwise contact me; I will be happy to meet with you in person and continue a respectful discussion.
