    Ekayani, agree on all your points. So important to talk with the farmers at the markets to hear their concerns and to provide information.

    It was me who will bring you some Food Not Fracking postcards on Friday, thanks to Clare getting more postcards to me. Solidarity, It's Working!

Thank you David Braun and the lovely lady who moderated for that powerful update coming soon regarding the halting of TPP. Thank you Leah (?) for offering to deliver Food Not Fracking cards to me this Friday. I speak regularly to all the farmers at my MARKETS! In Greenpoint I am blessed with 2! One on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. They ask me what's up. It's been good informing them, getting on a first name basis and being able to keep materials coming excellent/ Xom
