Puerto Rico's Revolution in DIY Disaster Relief

Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM PDT

The Public School Los Angeles

951 Chung King Rd, Los Angeles, California 90012

(English below)

La devastación del Huracán Maria ha cambiado a Puerto Rico para siempre y la colonia estadounidense ha entrado a una etapa de cambio transformativo. Esto es un llamado a la diáspora y a personas en los Estados Unidos para aprender sobre y apoyar el movimiento de ayuda mutua impulsado por el pueblo que está en expansión por toda la isla, transformando a gente y comunidades en crear un Puerto Rico más fuerte. En respuesta al abandono del gobierno, lo cual a dejado un vacío de poder, lxs Boricuas se han organizado ellxs mismxs y rescatado edificios abandonados para abrir y operar “mutual aid centers” o centros de apoyo mutuo, también conocidos como CAMs.

Los CAMs se han convertido en sustentos comunitarios donde vecinxs comparten y distribuyen comida, educación, vivienda, eventos culturales, servicios sociales, organizan proyectos de limpieza y reconstrucción y colaboran en su visión alternativa al capitalismo del desastre. El movimiento CAM necesita nuestro apoyo material, físico, y virtual ya que, seis meses después de la tormenta, su efectividad en crear poder del pueblo está siendo reconocida como una amenaza al colonialismo y la dependencia.

Hablaremos también sobre otros esfuerzos de apoyo mutuo como Occupy Sandy después del Huracán Sandy en la ciudad de Nueva York y tendremos una discusión abierta sobre el apoyo mutuo que hemos visto en el sur de California después de los incendios. También esperamos proveerles a lxs participantes información sobre cómo formar parte y estar al tanto de la red de apoyo mutuo en Puerto Rico por medio de la organización Mutual Aid Disaster Relief. Se ofrecerán refrigerios y habrá una recepción breve después de la discusión.

Public School y Black Rose/Rosa Negra se unen en solidaridad con Antena Los Ángeles para crear La Revolucion de Puerto Rico en el alivio de “hazlo tú mismo” desastres (naturales) como un espacio bilingüe usando los principios de justicia de lenguaje, donde todxs presentes pueden participar plenamente en el idioma en que se sienten más comodxs.

ENGLISH

The devastation of Hurricane Maria has forever changed Puerto Rico and the U.S. colony has entered into a stage of transformative change. This is a call to the diaspora and those in the US to learn about and support the people-powered mutual aid movement that is spreading across the island nation, transforming people and communities in creating a stronger Puerto Rico. In response to abandonment by government which left a vacuum of power, Boricuas have organized themselves and rescued abandoned buildings to open and operate centros de apoyo mutuo or mutual aid centers, also known as CAMs. The CAMs have become community lifelines where neighbors share and distribute food, education, housing, cultural events, social services, organize cleaning and rebuilding projects and collaborate in their alternative vision to disaster capitalism. The CAM movement needs our material, physical and virtual support as now, six months after the storm, their effectiveness at building people power is being recognized as a threat to colonialism and dependency.

We will also discuss other mutual aid efforts such as Occupy Sandy following hurricane Sandy in New York City and open a discussion on mutual aid we have seen in Southern California following wildfires. We hope to also provide participants with information on how to get involved and plugged into the mutual aid network in Puerto Rico through the organization Mutual Aid Disaster Relief. Refreshments will be provided and a brief reception will follow.

Hosted by the Public School and the Black Rose Anarchist Federation. We are uniting in solidarity with Antena Los Angeles to make this a bilingual space, using the principles of language justice, where all those present can participate in the language that they are most comfortable.
