Connecting vegan

Thought to all social justice

Where y’all been on this

Defensive eaters

Of meat calling vegans out

on privilege, soy

I remember when

called racist for connecting

Oppression of all

Really glad I got to see Carol J. Adams speak yesterday at the Vegan72 event in Richmond. Venue was awkward/too crowded but to hear someone who’s work I have admired for so long (since college so at least 10+ years now) was awesome, and it was a great refresher. So thankful to the organizers and glad so many people made it out to the event.

People died for the

Eight hour work day. We work

Longer, on their graves.
Austerity means

Rich tightening the belts of

The poor. Such helpers.

Work at a church and

Realize how much of life is a

Ministry. Weird huh?

Organizing is

Not just smoke and mirrors and

Public image tho.
And hierarchy does

Not look good on anyone. 

Grasping at power. 
Do the work. Show up.

Then you won’t have to make false

Claims of importance.

We are so good at

Infighting.  Cointelpro

Isn’t needed here
What is the statute

Of limitations on your

Bitter attitude

When internet makes

You upset go to the herb 

Garden. Eat a leaf
Fresh motherwort leaf

Is bitter and distracting

And helps anxiety
Blocking people you

Don’t agree with is a non

Starter movement plan
If you don’t know what

I know I won’t show patience

Only cold disdain
Now how does that work

How does anyone change and

How is this healthy
If someone makes a

Mistake send them swiftly to

The gulag. No hope.

Post-protest self care

Hey y’all

 If you saw the person get killed today, or witnessed violence, or suffered violence, chances are high you have been traumatized.

 You may not make the best choices in this state. You may need to do your self care. You may need to step back. 

Damage from this sort of shit is real but it doesn’t have to totally rule you. Your mental health is important. Slow down to take care. 

If you feel totally frantic, urgent, adamant, you may really be the one who needs a time out for self care. Ask for help if you need it.

Anarchist Housekeeping: Collective Living Under Capitalism Accepting Submissions

​Please repost/share this for us, we’d really like to get a diverse and well rounded amount of submissions! 

“But who will do the dishes after the revolution?” This tired question has been asked to countless anarchists, communists, and others pursuing systemic change. But, we don’t have to wait for the rev to give an answer. Anarchist Housekeeping: Collective Living Under Capitalism is an attempt to cobble together the stories of anarchist collective living within the United States. The goal of this anthology is to share what it takes to build a successful collective, what works and what doesn’t, what you wish you knew, why you think collectives matter, and what we can take away from collective projects.
Submission Deadline- November 1, 2017
