WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7

SIMPLY LIVING COMMUNITY MEETUP: OCTOBER TOPIC:
HOW TO TRANSFORM SUBURBIA WITH PERMACULTURE

Register on Eventbrite 

This special presentation by Jan Spencer of Eugene Oregon will inspire you with a living example of permaculture design + Q&A! Local Central Ohio Permaculture guest will be a reactor.

About this Event

The presentation will be a slide show and tell describing twenty years of transforming a quarter acre suburban property in Eugene, Oregon. The grass is gone front and back. There is edible landscaping all over, much of it trellised and espalier and even structures over rooftops to support grape vines. The south facing patio is now 350 sf enclosed passive solar that helps heat the house in the winter time. A rain water catchment system can store and distribute 5600 gallons, primarily for irrigation.

The 5 car driveway was depaved and the one car garage turned into living space. Well over 2000 people have visited over the years, the place is a permaculture land mark in the Pacific Northwest. Jan rarely buys fruit or veggies. With four residents and downsized lifestyles, the eco footprint of the property is comparatively small.

The presentation will also touch on the history of suburbia plus a short look at several other permaculture sites in Eugene. Jan's neighborhood hosted the 2015 Northwest Permaculture Convergence. Perhaps the only permaculture convergence to take place in a suburban neighborhood.

Jan is also making a series of zoom presentations that describe various aspects of System Change scheduled for October and November. You can find out more about the presentations at suburbanpermaculture.org

2 PM  LIVE OR WATCH LATER

FIRESIDE FIRE DRILL FRIDAY
JANE FONDA WITH 
SAKET SONI

Immigrants are essential to our survival in the climate crisis. Climate change is making disasters more furious. After raging wildfires, floods, and hurricanes, immigrants are rebuilding. Across America, they're the resilience workforce repairing homes, hospitals, and cities. As they do it, they're being hunted down by Trump's immigration agents.
     Saket Soni, founder and director of Resilience Force, joins Jane and Fire Drill Fridays to talk about this resilience workforce, new disasters, and how protecting these workers helps us build our way out of the climate crisis.
     We'll show clips of a Netflix documentary, Immigration Nation, featuring Saket and these workers, and talk about how the people benefiting from our immigration and climate crises are the same.

GrassRoot Ohio with Charlotte Owens, Alaina Swope and Katie O’Neil, SE Ohio progressive women candidates Running to WIN.
   Charlotte Owens is the Democrat running for Ohio House District 78, which includes all or part of 6 counties extending from Circleville to South Zanesville. In order to serve the people, and not big money, she's pushing for an end to the corruption under Republican leadership at the state level. She supports and will work for workers, families and small businesses to survive the pandemic. She stands for affordable access to healthcare, supporting and improving public education, and bridging the digital divide.  www.owensforoh78.com
   Katie O’Neil is grateful to be the democratic candidate for Ohio House District 94 on the centennial year of the 19th Amendment to our United States constitution. She has a bachelor of history and the environment, master of energy regulation and law, and juris doctor of law. She is dedicated to a plan that creates 100% renewable energy, economic sustainability, restorative justice and a clean and healthy environment. She was raised in a public service family in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and believes that you help those in need, care for those who are sick, and work for the greater good with integrity. “My family always believed that once I moved to Athens, Ohio I would stay for a lifetime and they were right.”  www.ohiohouseoneill.com
   Alaina Swope is a working-class progressive running for State Representative in OH-97. She is a published researcher, organizer, and educator and she's running to give this seat back to the people of Muskingum & Guernsey counties. For decades, her district has been represented by men who are completely out of touch with the people and it shows. The 97th is facing an affordable housing crisis, they haven't seen any economic growth in decades, and a third of the people are living in poverty. When elected, Alaina will fight for higher wages, affordable housing for all, and campaign finance reform. www.Swope2020.com.

Throughout the year the group build tiny houses, plant veggie gardens, practice simple living, and discover the challenges of living in a community.

The film documents the community’s learning process as well as exploring the global issues we’re facing, through interviews with some of today’s most interesting speakers on the subjects, including permaculture co-originator David Holmgren, filmmaker and activist Helena Norberg-Hodge, climate change activist David Spratt and many more.

 Sunday, September 13, 2020, 3:00 PM.  Voices from the Holy Land Film Salon: Roadmap to Apartheid. The film “Roadmap to Apartheid” graphically asserts that the Israeli system of total military, economic and social control over the lives of Palestinians constitutes Apartheid. Historical footage and the compelling testimony of South Africans take us back to see and understand the system of White Supremacy that gave its name to a UN-banned crime against humanity. Side-by-side with what happened in South Africa, the highly acclaimed film takes us to Palestine-Israel, where we see the same kind of rules and the same brutality inflicted on Palestinians South Africans make the connection and say: “This is another Apartheid.” Palestinians and Israelis detail how Israeli Apartheid operates and how it is being resisted. Is it really Apartheid? Many in Israel and the U.S. deny it. …Panelists Mark Braverman of Kairos USA and Rev. Ntuthuko Nkosi of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of South Africa will be discussing the film and the situation with moderator Dr. Michael Fischbach, author and professor of history, at Randolph Macon College.  Register for the webinar here.

Monday, September 14, 2020 07:00 PM, Militarization of the Police and the 1033 Program. Local police throughout the U.S. are direct beneficiaries of the military-industrial complex’s overproduction of hardware designed to dominate the globe. The Pentagon’s 1033 program provides police departments with excess military-grade equipment—including tanks, armored cars and weaponry—meant for war, not for keeping the public safe. When police are dressed and equipped for war, studies have shown, they are more apt to act as though the population is their enemy.  Massachusetts Peace Action.  More information and registration here.

Wednesday, September 16, 2020, 1:00 PM.  Palestine Today and the Kairos "Cry for Hope.” In a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the globe and as the struggle against historic and systemic injustice and oppression is revived, the circumstances of Palestinians living under occupation continue to worsen. The threat of Israeli annexation of large parts of the West Bank is an example of the decades of policies that have denied Palestinians their basic human and civil rights. Join us on Wednesday, September 16 at 1 PM Eastern for a special webinar conversation with two Palestinian Christian leaders, Rifat Kassis and the Rev. Munther Isaac, as they discuss the current reality, the situation of Palestinian Christians, and the recently-issued “Cry for Hope,” a letter to the world calling for attention and action to challenge injustice and to seek change to which UCC and Disciples leaders have responded. This webinar is scheduled to take place during the World Council of Churches’ World Week of Peace in Palestine and Israel.  Register here

Wednesday, September 16, 7:00 - 8:30 PM.  Simply Living Meetup:  Real Conversations Online/Learn about Columbus Community Radio.   Learn the backstory of Low Power FM Radio in Cbus.

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 07:00 PM.  Global Cooperation or New Cold War? The People's Foreign Policy.  "If Trump loses in November and can be forced out of office, building opposition to U.S. militarism and the foreign policies of a Biden administration will likely be the social justice movement’s biggest challenge," writes Max Elbaum in Organizing Upgrade.   Meanwhile, both the Trump administration and the Biden-led Democratic Party are moving on a path of confrontation with China, writes Tobita Chow in The Nation. Cosponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action, Organizing Upgrade and Justice is Global.  More information and registration here

Thursday, September 17, 2020, 5:00 - 6:30 PM.  Columbus City Council Northside Community Meeting.   Council President Shannon G.
