We are saddened to report that our colleague and friend Kirsten Brydum,  long time Food Not Bombs volunteer and SF Really Really Free Market organizer, was found dead this past Saturday in New Orleans. According to reports she was shot several times in the head.

Friends and comrades are planning a celebration of Kirsten at the RRFM on October 25th, Food Not Bombs will likely serve. An alter has been setup in the window of the Million Fishes gallery 2501 Bryant St. @ 23rd St, SF, CA. Kirsten’s father has created a web site where you can leave your thoughts and memories. Additional memorial information and emerging details are over at Indymedia (check under the comments section for the LA upcoming service). There is also a memorial collection of photos put together by friends and family.

Kirsten’s death comes on the heels of another tragedy for the activist community, the rape and murder of Eugene Food Not Bombs volunteer Marcella “Sali” Grace in Oaxaca Mexico.

Kirsten was an activist force to be reckoned with, having proliferated RRFMs around the country and organized them for years here in San Francisco.  She was also responsible for the Dirty Dove Infoshop, the amazing Access Café, and her newest most ambitious project, the Collective Autonomy Tour.  Those that had the privilege of knowing her will remember her as the exuberant, loving, and carefree person that demolished any hint of sadness or cynicism that came into contact with her.  She was an overwhelmingly trusting and sincere person that would never hesitate to lend a hand and continually offered herself toward the benefit and friendship of others.  The results of her fantastic efforts and love can be seen in the massive amount of loved ones she left behind who are now picking up where she left off to spread that kind of sharing and love of which she had such an abundance of.  We will miss her dearly.
