Rainbow Grocery Decides Not to Boycott Eden Foods

A reader recently forwarded an email chain in which she'd asked Rainbow Grocery to boycott Eden Foods, a Catholic-owned organic food corporation that is Hobby Lobbying its way into not paying for insurance on drugs that "prevent procreation." Rainbow declined the petition for the most San Francisco reasons ever: A vote was held by the worker-owned, democratically-run cooperative, and the boycott did not pass by a two-thirds vote.

And what of our reader's heartfelt, impassioned plea for women's rights and the non-personhood of corporations that two-thirds of Rainbow Grocery Cooperative's heartless members voted to pass over?

Hi there

Can I assume that you guys are now going to stop carrying Eden products? I sure hope so.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
