From the The Shawn Greenwood Working Group:
Thank you to everyone who came out for last Tuesday’s community conversation at the A.M.E. Zion Church. We were able to put Mayor Myrick’s proposed replacement of Gino Bush as a commissioner on the Community Police Board (CPB) into the larger context of systemic racism. Common Council will vote on this issue on Wednesday, June 5, and we need your help.
This conversation can’t stop here.
Show Up! Speak Out!
Wednesday, June 5th, 6pm, Common Council Meeting
City Hall, 108 E. Green Street
Please come at 6pm and fill out a card to have your voice heard in the public comment.

Just saw this on Facebook:
Please join Finger Lakes Animal Rights on Wednesday May 29th, to march in the Ithaca Festival 2013 Parade, themed “Where the Heart Is”. We’ll be walking resources — carrying signs displaying titles of books, podcasts, films, etc. related to making the world a better place through veganism. Anyone is welcome to join in. A great opportunity to show our community that it’s a win-win situation to Wear a Heart for ALL animals.

Or maybe not, who knows! But this movie does seem to be very convincing to a lot of people. See if it works for you, maybe!

This just in from Food Not Bombs Ithaca! Please donate if you can, or pass this on to people who can donate, if you can’t. Thanks!
This Saturday, as many of you probably know, Watermargin will be hosting a teach in on Antifascism in Greece and Europe. Ithaca’s Food Not Bombs chapter will be providing dinner for the attendees, and we’ve been out of commission for a while, so we’re going to need to rustle up some food in time for the event. If anyone has anything they’d like to donate in support- staples such as rice or flour, spices, herbs – or can contribute knowhow as to where we might be able to get food, it’d be greatly appreciated! Any interested parties can contact me at 508-395-9802. Love and Solidarity, Sophie Griswold – svg6 at cornell.edu
Is it possible I never blogged “Ithaca Goes Green: Top 5 Vegetarian Eateries” by Meghan Flynn, for the Cornell Daily Sun? Anyway, if I didn’t, here it is! It’s great, go Meghan!
Her picks: Moosewood Restaurant, Collegetown Bagels, Stella’s, Aladdin’s Natural Eatery, and Viva Taqueria. I confess I have never been in the fancy side of Stella’s – I was always a cafe kinda person, over on the left side, so all I remember from their menu is a berry-flavored carbonated drink called a “zot” which I think I liked more for its name than for anything else. But the others are awesome (just had Aladdin’s yesterday, actually!). I also love the vegan options at New Delhi Diamond’s, Waffle Frolic, Little Thai House, Thai Cuisine, Capital Corner, Samurai Japanese Restaurant, and Greenstar Coop. Who else is missing from this list?
