The world is poisoned with US militarism, Galway Food Not Bombs strives to be one of its antidotes?

"The US is still a country run by leaders who brandish, celebrate and use the massive violent capabilities of the Pentagon as a matter of course.(Norman Solomon, author of: Made Love, Got War)

Yesterday, Galway Food Not Bombs were at it again in Shop Street, this time beneath the shelter of green canvas, sporting a freshly painted flourescent banner and augmented with three new activists.

From our tentative start some months back, we are now riding the crest of a wave of goodwill; from the city's Community Wardens who no longer harrass us, to the plethora of shops who, in empathy, donate not unsubstantial amounts of food to us every Saturday evening.

Our initial two hour stint has gradually stretched, so that yesterday we spent four-and -a- half hours behind the field kitchen, buoyed by a constant stream of favourable comments from the public and heartened to do the same, even more so, next Sunday.

Yup! That’s right George, the terrorists are peace-mongering again outside Lynch’s castle …  you want your shoe-shine boy, Ahern, to rendition them over to Guantanamo Bay for re-education on the values of western democracy, is that correct?.

Well done, FNB, keep up the good work. As Howard Zinn says, every small act is important (with a slight paraphrase).

Time to go stick this on our school's Social Action Notice Board.
