Sean has been denied parole and his supporters are fundraising to cover legal costs to challenge this travesty. Thus begin SWAINIAC FEST 2021!!!!

When?:Thursday, Sept 23rd6-11pm

Collingwood Garden
2472 Collingwood Ave.
Toledo, Ohio


During our regular Thursday night bonfire, Food Not Bombs will be hosting a benefit show to raise legal funds for Sean Swain, an anarchist political prisoner recently denied parole.
We will have multiple live performances, a talk with Sean’s partner Lauren Swain, a vegan/ vegetarian cook out, our pop-up free store, a table to write letters to Sean, lit distro from Black Swamp distro and lots of swag for raffle or purchase.
We are suggesting a $5-20 donation but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Sept 3 is also Food Not Bomb’s regular sober night, but in honor of the event we will lighten that restriction after 9PM.
