Announcing a new publication Creeker, about the ongoing struggle at Fairy Creek on so-called Vancouver Island.
This summer on so-called Vancouver Island, thousands of people moved through a de-facto autonomous zone spanning multiple watersheds. An entire constellation of struggle burned bright this summer, welcoming into its fold a new generation of land defenders. We cannot begin to fathom the amount of stories of collective and individual experience that have piled up, but we also recognize how sleep deprivation, trauma loops, burnout, and the shock of returning to society can preoccupy our minds.
"The grassroots autonomy of this movement is vital to its strength + its existence. A generation has been lost to repression, gentrification, and nihilism…A new generation of resistance is being forged in the frontlines at Fairy Creek." @SaveFairyCreek https://t.co/xRYr6LVM1G
