URGENT BREAKING NEWS

SOUTH CENTRAL FARMERS EVICTION HAPPENING NOW

5 A.M. SQUADRON OF HELICOPTERS & SQUAD CARS CAME TO EVICT FARMERS & PEACEFUL SUPPORTERS

WHEN: Tuesday June 13, NOW

WHAT: Eviction of South Central Farmers and Supporters
Darryl Hannah and John Quigley still inside the property, other peaceful protestors conducting nonviolent civil disobedience.

WHERE: South Central Farm
4000 S. Long Beach Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90058

WHY:

For over three weeks supporters have been onsite at the South Central Farm, the nation’s largest urban farm, which serves as a 14-acre oasis in the middle of L.A.’s concrete jungle. This 14-year-old community gem functions as an active farm for more than 350 families and fills a local need for fresh produce, green space and a safe haven in a poverty-stricken region of Los Angeles. The farmers, community volunteers and celebrity supporters are in a daily state of peril anxiously awaiting the farm’s fate.


"The South Central Farm is a gem in the Los Angeles landscape. It supplies local communities with fresh, organic produce, gives children a safe environment to play and learn in, and provides a successful example of urban sustainability for the rest of the world to follow…"

- Dr. Joseph Hurwitz, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Isaiah, Palm Springs

The Farm is under Siege!! Mobilize to the Farm

The South Central Farm is under siege. If you live in LA or anywhere near there please make your way to the farm to keep the protesters and farmers safe.

The immediate area around the Farm has been blocked off by the authorities limiting access to the site. Spontaneous rallies of support have sprouted on these perimeters with crowds increasing in size as the morning passes. Protesters still inside the Farm are being physically removed and arrested.

The easiest access is to come from the South side of the farm coming north on Alameda or to head east towards the Farm on 41st or any other streets that run east/west bound.

Once again, this is the Red Alert! The Sheriffs have begun and are carrying out the eviction! Mobilize as many people as you come to continue to protest this oppressive action

Arrests have already been made.
It is still unconfirmed but there are also reports that a protester was carried out on a stretche.

Bulldozer positioned nearby have began breaking through the fences.

Once again, please converge to the Farm.
41st Street and Long Beach Ave. Los Angeles, CA

Thank you.

URGENT: South Central Farmers assaulted by Sheriffs

by nochehuatl Tuesday, Jun. 13, 2006 at 9:48 AM nochehuatl@gmail.com

This morning around 5:00 AM a large number of Los Angeles County Sheriffs surrounded the 14 acre South Central Farm and broke into the perimeter. In a military style operation,the sheriffs immediately began rounding up and handcuffing the farmers and their supporters which includes women and children.

Some of the farmers have chained themselves around trees and, at this moment, the sheriffs are using chainsaws to cut the trees to arrest the the farmers. Other farmers placed their hands into barrels filled with concrete and the sheriffs are using jackhammers to release the farmers to arrest them. Large crowds have gathered in surrounding streets. More later. . . .
