SOLIDARITY

Solidarity is difficult these days. The pandemic, the economic crisis, the general hopelessness of the problems we face, the unwillingness of the political class, all engender disillusionment and dis-empowerment. Capitalism plays off everyone against everyone. The media batters us with stories of violence, selfishness, cruelty and perpetual disaster. The temptation to stop caring is great. These links are a way to resist the perpetual creep of apathy,  disillusionment and hopelessness. Donate, if you have the means. Educate yourself, if you have the time. Signal boost & support, if you have a platform. Speak out, if you have family or friends who remain ignorant or bigoted. And Organise, if you have the means, the time and the mental fortitude to get involved on the ground level. 

Here, there is no room for guilt-tripping, gatekeeping, or clout chasing. Just do what you can, when you can for solidarity as its own end. Disclaimer: These links were selected on the basis of their usefulness for people who want to donate, signal boost, learn about or otherwise support people in need. An inclusion of a link is not necessarily an endorsement of its organisation or author and everything they might have said or done, it is simply an acknowledgement that the link in question might be useful to someone. The point is solidarity.

GENERAL RESOURCES

ORGANISING INTERVIEWS: The YouTuber Sophie from Mars is putting together a YouTube series of interviews with organisers to share information on how to get organised or else contribute to pre-existing attempts to organise workers, renters, activists and so on. This is an incredibly accessible way to learn about organising in all its forms.

RED PLANET: This is a podcast series by various YouTubers that attempts to counteract both the discourse-focused debate-bro sphere AND the hopeless 'doomerism' that is prevalent all across the internet. This podcast discuss various issues that relate to leftist theory and organising. This is also an incredibly useful way to learn about organising and theory and find new resources.
