Food Not Bombs Philippines

Because... FOOD is a RIGHT not a privilege! Because there is enough food for everyone to eat! Because SCARCITY is a patriarchal LIE! Because a woman should not have to USE HER BODY to get a meal, or have a place to sleep! Because when we are hungry or homeless we have the RIGHT to get that we need by panning, busking or squatting! Because POVERTY is a form of VIOLENCE not necessary or natural! Because capitalism makes food a source of profit not a source of nutrition! BECAUSE FOOD GROWS ON TREES. Because we need COMMUNITY CONTROL. Because we need HOMES NOT JAILS! Because we need....FOOD NOTBOMBS

“ A hungry man is an angry man”

Bob Marley - Them Belly Full (But We Hungry)

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on 

military defense than on programs

of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The message is clear, there can be no peace until

people have enough to eat. Hungry people are not

peaceful people.”

Former President Jimmy Carter June 17, 1999
