While the police is insuring those resisting the destruction of nature in dannibleibt, we must know that the possible after effect of such, are a very cheap weapon of oppression: Trauma.
It effects us individually and as a network. If trauma has become the currency of modern day repression, then resiliency is the weapon of the rebels.
I’d like to share a text written by the Jane Addams collective, “a small anarchist collective made up of social workers, psychologists and others who believe that in order to have a true and sustainable culture of resistance we must be able to maintain our mental health. We believe that this work is an essential part of community self defense.“
(reminder: the use of violence is the core functionality of the police. Organized violence is what made it an institution. If you believe to not be affected by, that is because of your privileges.)
This text is quoted from their zine called “Mutual Aid and Trauma Resilience”. You can read the full zine (alone or with your affinity group) here:
