So in case you haven’t heard, anarchists, homeless folks, students, and others are now going into their 8th day of occupation at the Monroe Park in Richmond, VA. They set up a small camp site on their first day and have made it through and expanded out with semi-permanent structures to establish a free, safe, and truly public space for everyone in downtown Richmond.
Recently RVA cops busted up some other homeless camps in town and those folks are now staying at the Monroe Park occupation, so the occupiers need camping supplies like: tents, tarps, blankets, and sleeping bags plus anything else that would make their time easier. In the spirit of solidarity, we’ll be holding a supply drive throughout the bookfair for Monroe Park. Lots of Richmond folks are coming, so they can just take it along.

Please bring what you can, if not, then save it up for actions in our town
