  2. It is not direct support, but it is urgent business to change structure of the conventional economic development to lighten a climate change.
    The world performs every economic development as brown economy now.
    All is principle to be sustainable!
    Pressure is necessary to set green economic principle and economic indicators of the United Nations!

  3. This is by far the most heartwarming stories I have read in a long, long, time. I live in the U.K and hears about this via Democracy Now! As a frustrated anarchist, I can’t describe how fantastic it is to hear about how you are organising yourselves free from central government, identifying what you truly need through a process of mutual aid, voluntary, free association and helping each other to meet those needs. My only concern is that once your area recovers, what you have established will lose momentum and will sadly become nothing more than a memory. Wouldn’t it be great if you could help the people of Florida and Georgia to work towards mutual aid? Why not use the same principals to try to help other communities across the U.S. who are effected by poverty and the effects of wage slavery? Maybe an international community based on production for need rather than profit isn’t as far off as it seems. If there is anything I can do to help please let me know and please,please, please keep up and spread the good work. Yours for peace, love and anarchy, Mark mrhessy@yahoo.com

  5. I am a survivor of Harvey, the people who I was living with lost the house to the flood.
    I stayed behind in a shop that my friend stores his bost in. This is where myself and my dog have been since the storm. I am officially homeless, if it was not for my friend I would be in a tent city and my dog would be who knows where. She is all I have and we both wouldn’t be able to deal with being separated.
    I am disabled and waiting for the decision of the SSD Administration for 3 months. I have been denied disaster assistance from FEMA and the Red Cross.
    Honesty gets you nothing. Maybe I should do like some folks and lie about paying rent when the fact is they don’t or just not cleaning up the small mess the storm made leave the AC off so mold could take over when all it takes is a little elbow grease and getting off your butt. That pisses me off. Especially when the house was given to you.
