Hi Beth & All, 
Yes, Food Justice info below:

http://mim.io/9f45b1

"In solidarity with New York City’s unions, universities, community organizations, and others, the food justice movement joins the nationwide movement to restore justice to our economy. Come out tomorrow to give voice to the poverty and hunger the food system has created and to
share the powerful message of food justice and food sovereignty.
Please come! This is an historic moment for New York City and for our fledgling movement. Food is also a central issue in the Occupy Wall St. campaign (see points 4 and 5 of the declaration).
When: 4:00 pm
Where: We will assemble as a food justice delegation at Foley Square.
How: You will know the food justice delegation by our colorful banners and the wheelbarrow of root crops we will have on hand (kidding—although feel free to bring one)!
Please bring banners from your organization and signs for the food justice movement. Also, do bring vegetables! Not only are they powerful symbols, but they can provide nourishment for those occupying Wall Street, who we hear have been eating mainly pizza. That is not food justice!
For more information, contact [address removed].
Send this to everyone you know, and stay tuned for a larger event on World Food Day, October 16th.
Can't make the march? Donate to the NYC General Assembly. Help feed the organizers!"

Also!:
"Meanwhile the residents of the square need to eat. Supporters from around the country are calling in pizza and fast-food orders for them from neighboring businesses, but many of the occupiers are vegetarian or vegan. We have been taking produce from our farmers market to the occupation as often as possible, but we need help.

This afternoon, a lot of unions are joining with the occupiers to march, at 4:30, from Foley Square to the Financial District. If you are going to the march from Brooklyn, please stop by the Commons to pick up a bag of apples or greens to take with you (no later than 3:30)."

If you can help do this on a weekly basis, please email [address removed]

Thanks for the information. Rosanna, do you know where and when the food justice group is meeting today?

I was down there for a few hours and attempted to discuss the economic implications of Peak Oil. I believe, like others, that we have seen a peak in the size of the global economy, which will continue to contract due to a plateau and then decline in global oil production. I believe this perspective should be explored more at OWS. I'm not sure how receptive most people were, or if they fully understood the implications of what I was explaining. Does anyone have any ideas? Perhaps a film screening?
