The Olympia Communard, Issue #1

Eleven days on, the blockade of fracking proppants at the Olympia Port holds strong.
The blockade has grown from a makeshift barricade of pallets and tarps to a large encampment, complete with barrel fires, tents, food, medical supplies, and plenty of literature. Punk shows, movie screenings, and skillshares take place frequently, transforming the space from a simple blockade to a small piece of a future world. The blockade is not activism; it is a different life, glimpsed briefly every time we share food, stare down the police, and make the survival of all a common responsibility.

This newsletter intends to be a record of the blockade–of the writings, events, and actions taking place near and far. As Olympia Stand tends increasingly towards the Olympia Commune–a liberated space of mutual aid and free association–we want to illustrate that transformation. This newsletter is not representative of the blockade as a whole. It is simply the perspective of some future possible world, glancing back at the collapse of this world and searching for those elements of redemption hidden therein.

enoughcrowdfundingnovdecOur equipment suffered a lot from traveling around Europe for our independent on the ground reports. We need new microphones for better audio on our video reports, a new laptop (the last one crashed in Catalonia) and have a lot of expenses for our on the ground reporting.

We want to stay independent and want to expand our work with on the ground reporting across Europe and even beyond. Therefore we need your support. Help maintain our site and continue our work. Your donations make our work possible.

We did and do a lot of on the ground reporting in Europe. On December 17 we will travel to Lesvos (Greece) and in January we will travel from Lesvos to Athens to report on the ground.

Each donation helps, also the small ones. Thank you for supporting our project.
