RAC: One Year of Distributing Free Food in MacArthur Park

The Revolutionary Autonomous Communities has created a food program where we are empowering ourselves and others to become self-sustainable

The Food Program is a mutual-aid project where people themselves are organizing and distributing food in their own neighborhoods. This is not charity, we do not believe that change will happen this way. This is self-empowerment, where working class neo-colonies are feeding themselves, and organizing to feed themselves.

Since the first week of November, 2007, RAC has distibuted much needed grocieries to the needy workers of the area. Las week more than 200 people standing in line received food packages.

You can join us every Sunday at 1:30 PM. Meet at the SE Corner of Wilshire and Parkview in MacArthur Park.

RAC Mission Statement:

We feel that this system is killing our people by what the corporations feed us or don't feed us. At the same time there is an abundance of healthy food that goes to waste. They would rather let food go to waste than allow the prices of food in the market to drop. Then they disconnect people (all indigenous and colonized people) from the land, which a free and independent people need to survive. They centralize power and resources in the hands of the few, this is how they keep oppressed people dependent on a white-supremacist, patriarchal, capitalist-imperialist system.

RAC's Food Program is a way that we can work with supporters and other organizations to feed healthy food to our communities. We want people to connect with each other, to pick up and distribute the food amongst themselves. We will support, help connect people and to supply whatever resources we can. Through this process our goal is to connect our communities and to take them back. Our overall goal is to regain our necessary connection to the land. We need land to survive, and the land belongs to us, not the colonizer. We want to relearn how to live off the land and how to truly be self-sustainable.

We're Still Here, We Never Left

-Revolutionary Autonomous Communities (RAC)

Mission Statement:

Who we are. What we believe. What we fight for.

We are a revolutionary federation of community councils & liberated spaces based in oppressed communities made up by oppressed people of color. We are a horizontal organization building self-sustainability and creating the structure, strategy, and program for change through direct participatory forms of organizing and a decision-making process based on consensus. We stand against all forms of oppression: imperialism, capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, fascism, heterosexism/homophobia/transphobia and the domination of human over human & human over all living things including mother earth. We believe and we fight for autonomy, self determination, self organization & the self defense of our communities.

Our strategy includes outreach and education, community programs, empowerment, support, training and mutual aid, so people can build self reliance & gain the skills, resources and the experience to liberate themselves. In striving for liberation, we work to decolonize our minds by embracing our indigenous roots and practices.

Revolution comes from the people not a vanguard party; it is an individual and collective process where we destroy the system while we create change within ourselves and the world. The best way to show our solidarity to the people of the world is to bring the war home, and to bring down amerikkkan imperialism while we struggle to build internationalism & intercommunalism.

We fight for freedom and won’t settle for less!

All power to the people!
