The #UCSCStrike in #SantaCruz is coming to a head tomorrow, as strikers have been threatened with being fired if they do not turn in their grades. Check out this full report from the first week of the strike about how it spread here. #COLA4All https://itsgoingdown.org/cola-as-commune-day-report/
We are losing our shelter . We are losing our healthcare , we are getting evicted and deported. It’s time we lose our fear. Tomorrow, the police will be deploying ruthless violence to kick people from their homes by any means necessary. They are ripping our shelter apart and leaving us to freeze on the streets.
For years #PaddingtonGreen Police Station has been left to rot by the government while people die on the streets from lack of shelter. People in the past few weeks have turned it into their homes. Their intention was not only to live there themselves, but to open it to a wider community, prioritising the homeless community in this borough. But the government cannot allow that to happen. They will put profit over people’s lives.
In #Boston, people are mobilizing against the same far-Right group that organized the Boston Straight Pride parade, works closely with white nationalists and neo-Nazis, and is holding a rally in support of the police and ICE this Saturday. #AllOut https://itsgoingdown.org/boston-allout-back-the-blue/

Most ideologies look to a better future. Anarchism does too, but it also lives its uptopia in the present. Where a group of anarchists come together, there is anarchy. Immediately and vibrantly alive.
Anarchists know anarchy forms spontaneously in the every day actions of the most indoctrinated humans. In friendships and gardens and emergencies. Because it just makes sense.
Little pieces of our utopia are scattered through the present. And we create more wherever we go.
I tend the trees, etc...
