On Tuesday, April 6, 2010, PEOPLE PROJECT organized the 6th weekly protest to END THE WAR ON THE POOR! Here are photos from this Tuesday. The food has been great! Real cooperative effort, most weeks in the rain, but not this one! Great music and people energy, too. We’re on our way to building a powerful poor peoples’ movement in this area. And this is what the back of the small invitation handbill says:
PEOPLE PROJECT invites you to gather every Tuesday-
END THE WAR ON THE POOR!
Dinner is shared on site at 4pm.
The war on the poor takes many forms. PEOPLE PROJECT understands that all wars are wars against the poor, the Earth, and the defenseless. The war on the poor includes lack of affordable housing, lack of access to healthcare, abuse of millions of animals in factory farms, slaughterhouses and labs, and heavy military recruitment of youth for global wars on the poor. The war on the poor includes state violence against refugees and houseless people, corporate exploitation of working people, lack of decent jobs, and the injustice of the prison industrial complex. A main focus for PEOPLE PROJECT is to stop the criminalization of houseless people. Please join us to speak out and build strength to END THE WAR ON THE POOR, however you experience it.
All photos but the last one were taken by Mark Deneen.
