    Community Solidarity, the nonprofit behind Long Island Food Not Bombs, desperately needs a large fuel-efficient cargo van that will allow us to expand our vegetarian hunger relief program. The vehicle we need is very expensive, so we’re asking for your help in reaching our goal. Be it by donating what you can, spreading the word, or organizing a fundraiser we need your help to feed more people. Please donate at - http://VeganFoodRescue.com What is Community Solidarity? Community Solidarity is a grassroots network of volunteers that rescues millions of pounds of vegetarian groceries. We rescue foods that, while still perfectly good, would normally be tossed out due to overstock or small blemishes. We then share these groceries with thousands of people in need across Long Island & NYC. We also share hot gourmet vegan meals, clothing, school supplies, seedling fruit & vegetable plants and other necessities. We’re an organization that believes Food is a Right, Not a Privilege. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, though hurricanes Sandy and Irene, through blizzards and on the holidays. Our goal is to end hunger with compassionate and nutritious plant based foods. Our commitment to this endeavor has made us America’s largest vegetarian hunger relief program! Last year we shared over 3,000,000 pounds of vegetarian foods with tens of thousands of people in need. This year we want to do much more, but we need your help to make that happen.

          A piece of land on the outskirts of Bristol is under threat by a new road-building scheme. The plan, which goes by the rather prententious name 'Metrobus', is a bloated top-down development being spun as a green initiative. Protesters have occupied part of the threatened land to prevent it being destroyed. In these interviews they explain what this place means to them and why Metrobus needs to be resisted.

          • Save the Briger Forest!


            from Bell Orbita / Added

            "The last remaining unprotected forest east of I-95 is being illegally cut right now. But it’s not too late! Activists and concerned citizens from all around will be gathering Friday January 30 from 4:30 to 6:30, at Donald Ross and Central Ave in Palm Beach Gardens to help save this forest from the corporate interests who fail to see its value and beauty. This 681 acres is currently home to several threatened and endangered species, including the gopher tortoise and snowy egret. It is slated to become home to more strips malls, more residential units and a biotech city complete with animal testing labs. IF THE BRIGER IS DESTROYED HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO IN YOUR BACKYARD: Increased CO2 levels A four-million-square-foot “Biotech City“ Animal testing labs Biohazardous waste Destruction of threatened and endangered native animal habitat More wasted tax dollars (on top of the $580 million already spent) 500,000 sq. ft. of strip malls, urban sprawl, and 2,700 unnecessary residential units More corruption – 3 of the 7 County Commissioners who voted in favor of Scripps Biotech have gone to federal prison for development-related charges! In its current state, the Briger Forest is an uncommonly large and valuable piece of habitat, boasting an ecosystem that is the last of its kind in this area. It is the home to several species under threat of extinction, including the gopher tortoise and hand fern. However, after much controversy, the Scripps Research Institute is looking to fulfill their dream of a commercial/residential offshoot of their facility on Florida Atlantic University’s FAU campus— by bulldozing one of the largest tracts of intact forest remaining in southeastern Florida. But we can stop it! There are several legal challenges being pursued, so let’s keep the pressure on and let them know we still care! JOIN US TO SAY “NO!’ TO OVERDEVELOPMENT AND “YES!” TO THE WILD!"
