What happens with the lights go out and the police guard stores filled with food? Will our networks be ready to sustain ourselves? Will we be able to help our neighbors or keep to ourselves?

On this episode of It’s Going Down, we again speak with two participants in the ongoing autonomous anti-capitalist food resiliency project, Lobelia Commons, based out of New Orleans. We discuss how the project has grown since the last time we spoke, the response to their publication, The Earthbound Farmer’s Almanac, compare experiences in Puerto Rico and New Orleans, and discuss autonomous disaster relief responses to Hurricane Ida and beyond.
