I started working at Starbucks and I usually work closing shifts so I get to take home a lot of food that is going to get thrown out. The food is perfectly good. I feel like this food could go to people that need it. I’m not sure how to make that happen though. Its only a few bags full so not really enough to give to soup kitchens, I’m not sure just trying to hand people food on the street is a good idea either. Any thoughts?
In countries where unions are weak, like ours, we tend to find whats called ‘tough love’, as they call it these days, which means ‘love for the privileged, and tough for everybody else’.
Its a blog created by two IWW organizers and fellow artists in LA that want to form a artists union to fight against exploitation and create solidarity in this and other industries. If you are a fellow artist or just a supporter, you should follow this Tumblr.
The people united will never be defeated!!!

We won’t be there for the start of this as we’ll be out of town but signal boost nonetheless.
I’m sorry if this makes me a liberal, a bad socialist, a racist, or whatever, but I’m kind of perturbed that people think their culture or religion...
I think the scariest thing about growing up is watching as everyone’s dreams and aspirations are put to the side in favor of reality
I wonder what Stalinist party meetings are like.
