Regional Gathering of Farms Not Arms on Sunday, May 6th at 9AM at the Swanton Berry Farm Stand, 2 miles north of Davenport on Hwy. 1.

War destroys people, ruins farmland, and wastes resources that could be going into feeding our global citizens and caring for the environment, preserving it for future generations. Real security begins with strong, diverse, local food production. Farms Not Arms is working with existing groups to support those projects that promote a safer and more peaceful world by working to fight hunger and promote food sovereignty, fair trade and social justice. To that end, Farms Not Arms has embarked on the following projects-

· Aligning with veterans groups to make available employment on American farms for the war weary and injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

· Connecting with and supporting farmers at home and abroad affected by war and its aftermath.

· Encouraging local marketing as well as supporting the growing bio-fuel industry.

Please join us on Sunday to learn more about Farms Not Arms and plan how we can take these important steps to resist the war and build community security right here at home. If you are unable to join us on Sunday, you can plug into Farms Not Arms in the following ways-

¨ Log onto http://www.farmsnotarms.org to sign on to our statement and to donate to support our efforts.

¨ Write a statement for our website about how the war has affected you and how you affect the war.

¨ Spread the word in your farming community about the growing resistance to global militarization and centralized economic powers.

¨ Host a gathering in your community to discuss these issues. Farms Not Arms can provide speakers or videos for your gathering.
