if you're anywhere in or near London, you guys have GOT to visit some of the XR camps. they're literally just communes. all the food is being cooked by those who have the energy and time, with the food donated by those who can afford it, and you just take the food you need. the power for stuff in saint james park is powered from a solar pannel and 2 bicycle generators. and everybody is just giving speeches and having a fun time. they're awesome!
@CornishRepublicanArmy i want to live there
@skelltan mood. when the next rebellion week happens I'm gonna join the occupations and bake bread
@CornishRepublicanArmy hell yea
@CornishRepublicanArmy *chants* temporary autonomous zones!
@CornishRepublicanArmy what the hell is going on
@CornishRepublicanArmy Ooooh god I want to visit one so bad now.
@CornishRepublicanArmy apparently, those camps and occupations also went up all over Berlin? idk it seems more militant what they're doing there but I'd definitely come hang out if I were in the vicinity, reminds me of that time around 2011 when I was radicalised by Occupy
@CornishRepublicanArmy hell yeah :D
@CornishRepublicanArmy kick some ass on our behalf lucy ^^
@jess you can come down later y'know... the camps are neat af
@CornishRepublicanArmy that is quite a convincing offer 👀
@jess we can be gay and I'll show you the pride camp....
@jess look at the angry queers Jess... don't you wanna hang out with them
@CornishRepublicanArmy I WANNA GET SHOUTY
@jess then we can hold hands and scream NO PRIDE ON A DEAD PLANET of you want
@CornishRepublicanArmy in the spring it was Hare Krishna that provided the food.
Did they manage to roll their own this time then?
@kyzh they're here yeah, but there's more than just them
@CornishRepublicanArmy it was great to see people organically stepping up to wash the dishes, serve the food, run up and down to replenish the drinking water etc.
It is a very powerful experience .
I'm glad you are sharing
@kyzh I just really want people to know this shit is going on and working
@CornishRepublicanArmy I'm 100% behind that.
XR as a leadership is terrible and well that sucks.
Yet I feel we should be able to nuance that narrative and show (the internet left) that they should show up there.
Real people are yearning for community, hope and I think a bit of radicalization of their ideals/ideas.
I'm really happy you are there and showing how positive it can be.
How out of place will you look and how much will XR organizers give you shit if you cover your face?
@queeranarchism na, there's a good few who I've seen masked up, they just don't want you to fight the cops
