Brief report back from anarchists in Mexico City on their disaster relief efforts in Oaxaca following the recent earthquake.
We want to thank the compañerxs that supported this mutual aid effort by donating what they could. To those who from different latitudes, in spite of the global health crisis, managed to support this effort. We were able to bring staple food products like corn, beans, eggs, milk, sugar, etc., along with medicine, first aid materials and medical equipment such as glucometers and blood pressure monitors, face masks, antibacterial gel, etc. to different communities in Oaxaca. We want to give way to other struggles in need of solidarity so we are officially closing the reception of economic support.
With these actions, we again demonstrate that we do not need the State, but only solidarity and mutual aid. Anarchist organization can respond to natural disasters.
