Fight The Man with yer Check Books

Today I recieved 2 pleas for funds.  1 for a urban farming project that I've had a small hand in for several years and 1 for some anarchists busted in Mexico for alledgedly molotoving some shit.

Fix shit or fuck shit that is the question... on some levels it's obvious we need to both of these things, but fucking shit up is so "glamerous" that those actions usually steal all the thunder and resources from those doing the unglamerous work of building capitalist replacement infrastructure.   So if you've got 2 duccats to rub together you might want to assess the fix shit/fuck shit ratio in your life and throw your privilege at one of these needs that has arisen in our community.
