Lane County Mutual Aid

The Lane Mutual Aid network is getting off the ground! They are doing street distribution of resources and helping form neighborhood resource sharing networks (neighborhood pods). Please check their website or facebook for the latest and get involved! (still in development)

COVID-19 Update

The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted daily life, is creating real hardships for many, and is exposing the cruelty of many systems and structures.

We’re canceling/rescheduling many public events and probably moving most meetings online using or (a free, secure, and open source video conference tool recommended by the CLDC). We’ll announce those changes here when we finalize those plans.

We are working with a number of groups who are coming together to form a mutual aid network that is working on distributing resources to people who are houseless and people who are isolated, helping neighborhoods establish their own resource distribution systems, and are generally working on ways to best connect people with support. More info to come

Here are some radical/anarchist perspectives on COVID-19:

Other things to note:

  • We’re planning on still doing something for the Share Fair on March 31st but it will be different than usual. We’re still figuring that out.
  • Cahoots has urgent need for supplies (hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, disinfect wipes, etc)
  • The City has deployed hand washing stations around town
  • EWEB said they won’t suspend service for unpaid bills. And no late fees. Expanding payment support.
  • Laughing planet is giving out food for kids
  • Thinking Tree spirits giving out free hand sanitizer if you bring a container
  • Occupy Medical is gearing up to do house visits for isolated people
  • White Bird keeping crisis lines open

<3 stay well everyone

Bike Maintenance Zine

Bike Maintenance Zine

We stumbled across a paper version of a great bike maintenance zine by the Bike Church that we wanted to distribute so more people could repair their own bikes. But we couldn’t find it anywhere online so we scanned it and are making it available here for others. Enjoy!

A Sewer Catastrophe Companion

A Sewer Catastrophe Companion

The cascadia subduction zone earthquake has a good chance of knocking out the sewer system in a lot of areas and this could result in a terrible public health crisis as hundreds of thousands of people find themselves with no way to safely dispose of their excreta. This guide has instructions for proven, easily implemented systems for storing and processing human waste. It was created by the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s Collaborative Design’s inaugural cohort and MDML and formatted into this zine by me, a nameless anarchist living in the Eugene/Springfield area.
