@rachel0964 I didn't start it, I just hang out there sometimes :b

They did monthly "popups" for a while, collecting donations and setting up tables in a park to give them away. I suppose during that time they were collecting the funds to rent out a location. Then I guess they just, did it

It's in a pretty poor neighborhood, which is part of the point, so I imagine rent isn't too high. And I think the building was in a pretty bad state at first too

Honestly, I say emulate the idea on whatever scale and in whatever way is available to you now. I've come to realize that people really want to share their stuff, and literally the only thing holding them back is that there isn't a physical space to put it. Put up a community library, free pantry, tool share, sharing table, whatever, and it's likely to fill up pretty quick. Honestly, it's so effective that I'm surprised it's not already a massive fundamental part of anticapitalist praxis

The way we usually describe it is "like a thrift store, except we don't charge for the stuff." People bring donations, volunteers sort them, people pick them up. Rent is covered through patreon and venmo donations

There's also a community edible garden being built in the back, plus community events and concerts. It's a really awesome little setup

capitalist economic theory: no one gives anything away without asking for something in return, and anything offered for free will be exploited by selfish people trying to profit from it

the anarchist free store in my town: please, come take more of our free stuff, we have too much. we're running out of space from all of these donations and don't know what to do

Zion Weeping Rock trail, looking out from cave under a layered cliff. Water that had been seeping thru permeable Navajo sandstone layers hits impermeable kayenta shale & ends up weeping out of the cliff wall, creating “hanging gardens“ of plants growing on the vertical face, & a veil of water (that’s what the kid on the left is teaching out to touch).

Zion no idea if this cave in the cliff wall has a name. I just enjoyed it being there.

[In this acute moment, building up for decades, community kitchens along the border don’t just provide meals, they fuel a migratory movement demanding justice and life. Medic mobilizations don’t just heal cuts, give fluids, tend wounds – they strengthen the flesh and bones of a widespread resistance to the criminalization of movement itself. Shelter spaces don’t just place people beneath established roofs, they manifest the spirit of sanctuary...]
