Across the country, our earth draws closer to the brink. Global
warming has become a fact in the eyes of the world's top
scientists, the world's oceans rise in temperature as whole
hosts of marine life are dying, and logging corporations cut deeper
into the last of the world's old growth forests. Globalization
throughout the third world creeps into more and more indigenous
cultures, either destroying them or turning them into de-facto
slaves in corporate sweatshops for the so called, "free-market".
Locally, urban sprawl is effecting us all. Local shops are driven
under as the Wal-Marts and Barns-n-Nobel kill off anything
resembling, local, union, good jobs. Rents are driven up
everywhere, as people from other areas flee their own rising rents.
Roads and strip malls destroy orchards, farms, and fields. Homeless
people, youth, activists, and others who don't fit into a plan
for rapid corporitization are swept under the rug, in an effort to
make Modesto safe for profit, and not for community. How much
longer must we stand by and watch as the millions of pounds of
smoke climb into the air on our way to work? How much longer
will we watch as a new McDonalds is slopped into another area
where good jobs and community based businesses used to exist? If
there is going to be a start to stop this - let's start on a day
where we are supposed to care about the earth - EARTH DAY!
Let's make this day EARTH FIRST DAY!

-Food Not Bombs will be serving Breakfast and Lunch! Free for all!
-Free film showings! We will be showing a wide range of radical
