Brunch w/ Asher Platts (the Punk Patriot) of the Maine Green, Sunday August 4, 11:30 am Asher Platts, aka the Punk Patriot, is visiting Syracuse this weekend all the way from Portland Maine where he is Chair of the Maine Green Independent Party. He'll share some of the successful organizing strategies Greens are using in Maine - to fight Tar Sands, reform drug policy, and get GREENS ELECTED to local office.  Join us for a potluck style brunch at the Bread and Roses Collective, 162 Cambridge St in Syracuse (if it's nice, we'll eat in the garden). This is an informal event, but try to arrive kind of on time - and  if you can RSVP and post in the comments what you think you'll bring at the Facebook event page - there'll be bagels and coffee, so please bring accompaniments or spreads!

As a political party we work to establish political action based on cooperation, rather than exploitation, on conservation rather than consumption, and on sustainability rather than short-term gain. We believe in an alternative, independent politics.
