In this episode I speak with Dezeray Lyn — activist, street medic, and co-organizer of @mutualaiddisasterrelief Mutual Aid Disaster Relief (MADR) -- I ask her to discuss the fundamental differences between grassroots disaster relief efforts (as demonstrated by MADR), and those done by large-scale federal government agencies and charity organizations, in providing supplies and services to disaster-stricken communities (e.g. #PuertoRico after #HurricaneMaria, and most recently the communities impacted by the devastating #wildfires in California). In particular, we examine how mutual aid is "a factor of evolution" (to use the adage of #PeterKropotkin ), and by acknowledging this fundamental component of the human condition, we can understand grass-roots disaster relief networks as potent examples of what human beings are capable of in the this time of accelerating #climatechange and ecological collapse. We need to take heed of successful direct actions made by networks like MADR in providing communities with a model in which to adequately anticipate, prepare for, and recover from these widespread disasters, especially as government agencies repeatedly fail to address the reality of our current predicament in any meaningful or helpful way. The socioeconomic relationships imposed under global capitalism and the State has failed to adequately provide the resources and organizational structures required to face our collective predicament. As our global climate system becomes increasingly disruptive, we must look to nonhierarchical organizational models based on mutual aid, like MADR, in demonstrating how to proceed into our uncertain future. •
Mutual Aid Disaster Relief is a #decentralized network, defined by the character and creativity of a multitude of communities and drawn together by the collective commitment to stand in #solidarity with those impacted by disasters and turn the tide in favor of #climatejustice •• ☾ ☾

we hope you spread the word of CLIMATE CHANGE effects such as the wild storms and coral bleaching in Australia, the wildfires in Malibu and the sinking cities of Jakarta and Manila and many more. This is happening right now. This is and will be our reality if we don’t make a change.
Smokey Sunset - Twin Lakes, CA, USA - Summer 2018
The wildfires this year in California were both record and heartbreaking. I snapped this photo as we toured around Twin Lakes, outside Bridgeport, CA. The orange haze is from the nearby fire that ravaged the countryside. The air quality was less than subpar - to say the least.
I believe these catastrophic events (wildfires, powerful hurricanes, blizzards etc) are due to the ever-changing climate...I hope as a civilization we can realize that and correct the course before it is too late... TB2 Photography - on FB

There is rubbish everywhere in India. It’s heartbreaking. To give people their due, they do burn piles of the stuff at the roadside or outside their house to dispose of some of it. Nothing quite like the smell of burning crisp packets in the morning 🙄
All fires we’ve seen have been small and contained. Yet in the last week, we’ve seen evidence that suggests some of these fires get a little wild... .

More than 2,000 animals were displaced during the deadliest and most destructive fire in California’s history. Some families are still desperately searching for their pets, while others have no homes to bring their animals back to. Volunteers have stepped in to care for them, a gesture of hope for the many who are grieving.

“That’s my boy!” Watch an emotional reunion between Laci Ping and her tabby Mayson, who escaped from his carrier when an explosion started him during the #CampFire evacuation. Laci and her husband, Curtis Mullins, adopted Mayson just two weeks ago. Laci said Mayson is the sole bright spot during a very stressful time. “The one good thing in our lives at the moment is him.” Thank you to Curtis Mullins for sharing this video of the emotional reunion. #NBC7#Wildfires
