Occupy the Farm and the City
A group of East Bay activists will discuss urban farming and agricultural justice movements in the Bay Area, including but not limited to the theory and practice that inspired occupation and continuing struggle around the Gill Tract in Albany. Confirmed speakers include Josh Cadji (graduate student in Community Development at UC Davis, a collective member of Phat Beets Produce, a racial and food justice organizer in Oakland and a radical urban gardener), Anya Kamenskaya (an Occupy the Farm organizer and a local food justice activist), Ashoka Finley (an urban agriculture teacher for Urban Tilth and an activist based in Richmond, CA), and Marcelo Felipe Garzo Montalvo (an activist, educator and cultural worker in social movements for food, ecological and healing justice). Discussion will be moderated by Rebecca Tarlau (PhD student in Education at UC Berkeley and an Occupy the Farm activist. She has spent extensive time working with the Brazilian Landless Workers Movement).
