solidarity
Solidarity
n. mutual support within a group
Supporting self organised struggle
But not stifling autonomy
Being aware of privilege
and using it to call out oppression, not perpetrate it
Taking up the fight
Fighting for liberation is the responsibility of everyone
Learn from your comrades
The only way we can understand a person's experiences is by talking to them
Decide own political direction
even if it means disagreeing
Call out oppressive behaviours
This allows us to hold each other to account and be as accessible as possible
Lead and organise
organise the fight back; decide how, when and why you campaign
