Paul Cockshott, while not an anarchist, is an incredible contemporary mind. His YouTube channel is by the same name, and he’s a PhD with published books. Can not recommend him enough.

OPERATION: HOPE / RINSE / REPEAT - Announcement of Mass Organized Protest to send weekly packages of soap, tampons, and other hygiene products to Government offices and border camps en masse. Starting tomorrow, JUNE 27 2019!

To all true patriots concerned, appalled, and furious with the last two years of increasing abuses towards immigrants and their children at our border, the time has come for another united effort. Starting tomorrow, and until these migrant children are saved from the abuses rendered onto them, we must show our resolute disapproval of these crimes as the people of the United States of America.

Last week, the Trump administration showed the world their malicious hand in full.

After a lawyer visited the detention centers and described the "inhumane conditions" that migrant children were being kept in, the DoJ saw it fitting to make their arguments for the unsanitary conditions in court. Bold-faced and without empathy, DoJ attorney Sarah Fabian argued in front of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that detention facilities were not required to provide the thousands of migrant children with essential sanitary items, like soap and toothbrushes.

In the wake of this shocking claim, volunteer lawyers and civilians near the border have attempted to deliver and donate supplies to the camps, but are being turned away with CBP claiming they do not accept donations. With this new development, and in light of all other abuses, it has become readily and disgracefully apparent that the Trump Administration, ICE, and the CBP have made it their mission to keep these migrant kids in filth, disease, and despair.

After all, the cruelty is the point.

Furthermore, we as a country are spread miles upon miles apart, away from these concentration camps. The administration is relying on this to deter the will of thepeople, to make us apathetic. To make us think that there is nothing we can do to stop this from happening.

Horsesh!t, we say! We must reject these horrid claims! We must not be the good people who do nothing as these people suffer! With the death and blood of six migrant children (that we know of) and even more adult immigrants on the hands of our devolving country, we as the diverse peoples of the United States must take a stand. We must send a message to those in power.

We will not allow this! If this administration refuses to care for these children, if it refuses to provide basic necessities such as common soap, then we will. WE MUST*.*

If we cannot be there en masse to protest and fight, then we will instead provide. We will provide soap. We will provide kleenex. We will provide toilet paper, tampons, diapers, disinfectant, wet wipes, sunscreen, shampoo, dust rags, whatever we can fit in boxes and send. We will become their supply line. We will deliver them health. We will deliver them hope. We will show them that America is not defined by the atrocities of a mad king's court, but by the love within the heart of the common folk.

ICE and CBP have shown us their goal. They mean to fight off all aid to these children. They have decided to turn away and destroy donations. So how do we counter this?

Simple: We clog their entire feckin’ mail system and office buildings with non-stop packages of soap and shame, and we keep sending the wealth until they are forced to clean up their camps and care for these young migrant souls!

OPERATION: HOPE / RINSE / REPEAT

The steps of this protest operation are simple...

Build your package of soap and hygiene necessities. This is you supply drop of "HOPE". Include as much as you are able, bars of soap, feminine products, disinfectants, you name it. If it fits in the box you bought, you pack it.

YOU WILL NOT PACK DANGEROUS ITEMS. Just soap and hygiene products. We are trying to reach these kids, not cause violence in their name.

2. Write a message to put in the package. Anything you want. A large letter detailing your disgust, maybe words of encouragement for the kids, or just tell ICE that Captain America would beat the everfocking snot out of them if he saw what was happening ("language!")!

3. Choose the initial sending address of the camp / department / senator / representative you want to send to; rather that you wish to "RINSE" your package off onto. Below these steps you will find an extensive list of mailing addresses for all major departments and border camps involved in this madness. You will also find links to government directories so you may find any minor camps or departments near you. I will also provide volunteer organization addresses if you feel they could use the supply drop more.

4. Choose ANOTHER government address as your Return Address. We want these packages to be as annoying as possible. They will probably wise up eventually, but until then the packages will bounce back and forth and clog the system. Cause chaos in their clerk buildings with mountains of packages, some of which they will certainly bounce back to each other, until they are forced to address it.

5. Choose a return name. You can use your own name if you'd like to make your statement known, but I recommend a soap related pseudonym. Like Lucy Lysol, or Bud McSuds. If they want to be authoritarian, then we want this tidal wave of packages to be as untraceable as possible. Or choose a superhero name if you hope a child will read it. Whatever mood you're feeling on your sending day.

6. Finally, choose a day of the week to be your "supply day". Any day: Sunday thru Saturday.Every week when your day rolls around (or any consistent pattern that works for you), you will "REPEAT" the process of building a package and sending it to addresses of your choice. With all those steps done, you send it. You send it with chutzpah. You send it knowing you are one more into the breach, one more trying to reach those kids and demolish the barrier Trump has tried to put up. Then you wait for your next Supply Day to roll around and you do it again. And you keep doing it until it becomes too much for even ICE or some crusty racist senator to stop the flow of love and care from reaching the children who deserve it most.

Then you can walk with pride in your heart, knowing that you as an individual, added your weight to the pile and broke the back of this concentration camp operation. Be the hero these children need, my compatriots. Fight the battle they cannot, no matter where you are in the country; the same country they so desire to live within. It is your duty as an American.

It is the mission given to us by Lady Liberty herself: To take the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of teeming shores. To receive the homeless and tempest-tost, for today, we take up the lamp, and though we may not be able to guide them inside quite yet, we will shine its light from the golden door!

Whether it’s the Fourth of July, New Year’s Eve, or any other raucous celebration, for animals, fireworks are terrifying—and could be fatal. Many dogs and cats flee in fear from their deafening blasts. Animals become confused and panicked, and shelters see a spike in the number of admissions after fireworks displays.

Simply keeping animals indoors may not be enough.

Frightened animals may flee their homes trying to escape the startling and confusing blasts. It’s not uncommon for dogs to break through windows and screen doors or dig under fences in a panic. Prepare your home and animal companions before the event:

• Distract your cats and dogs by giving them lots of love and attention.

• Play some soothing background music or turn on the TV.

• Close the curtains or blinds.

• Make sure that all your animals are wearing collars with current identification tags and that they’re microchipped.

The most important thing for scared animals is to have their guardians close by.

Hi other me.

The original Federation of Anarchist Communes was founded 4 years and 64 days ago today. At its best, the FAC was a joyful and fiery coming together of diverse ideas and characters, untainted by dull officialdom or diplomatic controversy. At its worst the FAC could become just another dry and stale political outfit. But its been an enjoyable and enlightening journey.

Much of the community has passed on, and these days the FAC is gathering dust, a curiosity of times past. Everything has a lifetime, and now we are at an end.

The Federation of Anarchist Communes is now closed. I will be putting a password lock on the region, but I won't be ejecting anyone for the time being.

Residents here may remain for now, or might find another region to begin anew. Places such as Anarchy, The Internationale, The Communist Bloc, and others would welcome anyone here, I'm sure.

Otherwise, I invite everyone to join me on a new adventure over in the Libertarian Socialist Confederation, freshly created and open to all.

Forever in solidarity,
Kassimo

Thank you everyone for being part of such a good region! It was a pleasure to volunteer as enactor with you all. Good travels! ❤️🖤
