BREXIT and DUAL POWER – ANARCHISM’S BIG CHANCE
No one trust’s the government to fairly and effectively organise the distribution of food and medicines in the chaotic week’s after Brexit.
Recent crises such as the aftermath of Grenfell, recent floods have shown that it is volunteers and local community groups who fill the void left by government incompetence. At Grenfell the situation was described as similar to actions in Kropotkin’s Mutual Aid.
The opportunity afforded by the post Brexit government inertia will be far greater
Anarchists need to set up local FOOD DISTRIBUTION GROUPS to ensure the fair distribution of food and medicines. We need to wrench this process away from government. Initially these FDGs will be area based but later street by street and working co-operatively to ensure equality of food supplies.
The FDGs will also act as the mechanism by which STOCKPILING BY THE RICH will be reported and acted upon. As people said in WW2 ‘we don’t mind the hardship as long as its fairly distributed’.
Indeed ww2 offers us a good example of working class spirit with a clear moral sense of ‘ them and us’.
Bread queues were often cited by the Bolsheviks and anarchists as the prelude to revolution – we need to start thinking the same way now.
We need to et up local FDGs now so they are in place from the start.
ALL POWER TO THE FDG’s – SEIZE THE TIME – DUAL POWER
