RED ALERT!! Encampment and tree sit to resist the eviction and save the South Central Farm...
Encampment and tree sit to resist the eviction and save the South Central Farm has begun!! The L.A. County Sheriffs Department has received notice to execute the eviction of the farmers and supporters at the South Central Farm. The Farm and farmers need your help now!!
If you are willing to encamp with us our legal team will offer counsel and you will also be given a, "Know Your Rights" Training as you will be risking arrest. There is also a Unity Principles form which all participants in the encampment must sign in order to be part of the community tree sit/ encampment. The greater the numbers encamped increases our chances of success. Those who cannot stay in the farm can still help us by coming to daily vigils, becoming legal observers and bringing supplies to those inside. Bring a chair or anything you would need to be an active witness.
The time has come to show the politicians, developer and global community that we are serious about environmental justice in South Central Los Angeles. The greening of L.A. starts with the preservation of the South Central Farm. Bombard the local officials with calls and emails to save this oasis. We want a livable city!! We want the Farm!!
FYI: The Trust for Public Land is no longer fundraising for us. The contract has expired and we are once again standing alone defending our dignity.
