Defend Uhuru Flea Markets in Clark Park!

West Philadelphia's most popular community flea market -
a benefit for the African Village Survival Initiative

Join the campaign:

"The Park Belongs to the People!"

Calling on all neighbors, supporters, vendors, local businesses & organizations to get involved in the campaign to defend the Uhuru Flea Markets in Clark Park. There is a small, vocal clique in Friends of Clark Park that is actively attempting to limit the number, size and location of the flea markets in the park for the 2010 season.

In the current economic crisis, which is hitting the African & Latino communities particularly hard, many Philadelphia neighborhoods, including West Philly, are facing devastating poverty, unemployment and foreclosures. Uhuru Flea Markets provide a crucial opportunity for economic development and bring the entire community together.

Come to the organizing meeting:
Thursday, September 17 • 7:30pm

Uhuru Solidarity Center • 3733 Lancaster Ave • W. Phila
