TAKING CARE OF EACH OTHER & TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES
SUNDAY NOV. 8, 2015
How do we care for each other when we struggle to care for ourselves? These events take place on unceded land of the Coast Salish peoples. When colonization remains unchallenged by armed resistance, when the sum of harmful stimulants exceeds a certain
threshold, the colonized’s defenses collapse, and many of them end up n psychiatric institutions…  a constant and considerable stream of mental symptoms are direct sequels of this oppression.
Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth.
