PBL Robots is a card and dice game where you build a giant supermech from you deck and challenge up to 2 other players in brutal robot mayhem only ending when one stands victorious on the broken husks and shattered dreams of the other.  it was designed by my friend William Hessian and the good people at Hidden Ladder Colllective in portland maine.  from the website "PBL ROBOTS is a strategy dice & card game where you manage
a giant robot and try to blast away your competition. 
 
PBL ROBOTS have a unique deck building phase where you draft your roster and collect powerful armor, zany crew, and unique actions to improve your robot. Each player select a dynamic
starter pilot and slides it into their base robot and
the game begins. The goal is to blow off all 4
limbs of your opponents robot by rolling the
attack dice. "  throwing money in their direction is a good decision.  if you do not have money, or you do not wish to infest in this game, please pass the link on to people you think would like this.  I have seen this game since it was a pack of hand drawn cards glued to a playing card deck and it has come a long way with a lot of amazing love and passion put into it.  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robotcardgame/pbl-robots-dice-and-card-game

A competitive ROBOT card & dice game. Upgrade. Roll. Destroy.

sumac is a southern maine resources sharing network to support leftist and environmental actions.  It helps provide free organic food for rallies, demos, direct actions and gatherings and sets up community gardens.  the print shop Mobil Front provides free pay-what-you-can printing for community groups, activists and any one who need it as well as freely distributes and publishes zines on a veriety of topics including environmentalism, eco-centrism, and eco-feminism.  we are hoping to branch out into graphic design as well as find more sustainable ink alternatives.
We are a network of radical lefty, non violent revolutionaries, working to develop community based alternatives to corporate and government reliance. We just got a new place to set up shop, and want to make the most of the coming outdoor organizing season, with regular food not bombs servings, critical mass bike rides, workshops, film screenings, education, outreach and promotion.
Here are our headline projects:
Sumac is short for Southern Maine Action Network, and we advocate for more sharing of ideas and resources between organizations, ie, solidarity in action. Lets actually support what eachother are doing, that way we can learn more from one another and be stronger! We are working on a newsletter, organizing an apartment building to serve as activist housing, and a base for projects to opperate out of.
Food Not Bombs is a local chapter of an international non violent revolutionary movement, calling for an end to systems that put profits before people, and results in the waste of surplus, while people go without basic resources. We feed people for free, in public spaces, at protests and other events, using almost entirely surplus food. Always vegan and vegitarian. We are also turning lawns into gardens, helping locals with their gardening, tracking down supplies, and maintaining them.

Mobile Front is a community print shop and zine distro. We provide pay what you can printing to the radical community, distribute propaganda and DIY manuals. We have a number of other projects as well, like a growing book lending network, a bike share program in the works, and want to eventually open our own infoshop. We are  preparing a local housing and agricultural land reform campaign called ¨Squat for Life¨ for social and eco justice.

"hands up don't shoot" was a chant that came to the public consciousness out of the anger and despair and action of black citizens in Ferguson. "don't shoot" are the last words of too many black lives now extinguished buy radicalized violence at the hands of the state and white supremacy. fellow white people, I ask you to look at your skin and ask yourself if you would ever be a target for racial violence and extermination as the black lives that sparked this moment have been and are continuing to be. in your interactions with the police how likely will "hands up" be the last thing you hear and "don't shoot" uttered with your final breath. I ask you to think on this because for me when I look at my skin I realize that that chant will never apply to me, I have faced police violence because of my class, my sexuality, for political reasons at actions and protests but never because of my race, and I never will. that is one of the frightening privileges I have because of my skin. I am not telling you you should never say that chant, protests need every voice they can get (and for me it comforted me that black people were leading the chant providing context) but if you do, do it critically, do it in solidarity with the knowledge that it is not your story you are chanting it is that of your black friends and loved ones whose cries of justice you seek to amplify. and know that some times the best thing the privileged can do to support the oppressed is to step back in silence and listen deeply as they share their stories and their ideas, their criticisms and their joy. Listen and reflect.
from the article "Look, I understand wanting to show up and support, but white people need to understand that this symbolic act of raising your hands in a position of surrender is meant to illustrate how black people are violently targeted by police because of their race. If you don’t experience that, you should not mimic the gesture in an attempt at “solidarity. It is centering yourself in a narrative that you cannot tell because of the protection your white privilege gives you. It shows a lack of understanding about the nature of systemic state sanctioned violence against black bodies."

yay we now have enough money to buy just over 2 square feet of our park back.  Each $55 donation saves one square foot of the park! The goal is to outbid Rockbridge and buy back our own park! People power!
