> From: crust <crust-A-rabbit.com.au> Greetings Everyone!
As many of you have heard, organizing is now getting under way to hold an
international gathering of Food Not Bombs groups in New York City, August
2004. We need you to take active part in shaping the vision of the
gathering. Only the smallest steps have already been taken to turn this
idea into reality. We need your help!
Before leaving the computer please subscribe to the up and running
organizing e-mail list. You can get on board by sending an e-mail to :
fnbnornc-subscribe@lists.riseup.net

>From there we can begin to work together to pull off a kick ass gathering!
Also, below is a copy of the proposal for an international gathering and a
questionnaire that have been sent around. Take the time to fill out the
questionnaire with your group and post your responses to the list. Please
forward this email to any fnb people you know or would like to see make it
to the conference.

Announce the organizing list in your outreach.

Let's get on with it! We've got a world to win!

********************************************************

August 28th to Sept. 2nd 2004, the Republican National Convention (RNC) will
gather in New York City to re-nominate George W. Bush to presidential
office. In response, thousands of people will mobilize to oppose the
egregious policies, principles and politics of the Republican party.

Food Not Bombs groups have called for an International Gathering to
precede the RNC. We hope to bring together FNB chapters from all around
the world to New York for discussion, food sharing and direct action. We
would like to see the formation and goals of this conference decided
democratically to include input and ideas from everyone interested. This
undertaking requires assistance from as many people as possible, please
join together.
Join the list serv fnbnornc@lists.riseup.net

**************************************************************************

Questionnaire:

Would you be interested in attending an international Food Not Bombs
gathering in New York during the Republican National Convention?

What do you want to see out of an international gathering (i.e.
spokescouncils, skill-shares, speakers and workshops)?

How many people do you think your chapter could send?

What kind of supplies or contributions could your group bring or send?

What kind of actions would you like FNB to participate in while in New York?

What kind of problems do you think your group would have in traveling to
New York and engaging in the the gathering and actions?

Would you be interested in sponsoring traveling FNBers during a springtime
North American tour preceding the international gathering?
