I used play guitar to get by, but since the murphy’s law experience whilst running the project in 2022, my nervous system needs attention and I can’t play guitar well anymore, and it don’t even feel nice any more for me.
If I wasn’t an ACTIVE Activist, who was travelling around physically supporting anarchist projects, I wouldn’t be in this situation, because I would be retired already with my old bags of crypto cashed in at the ATH..
I had to use what I had left of my bags, which was still a conciderable amount in 2020, totally against my will via paying rent and what not, under house arrest aka “lock down” in the very centre of Madrid of all places – and then getting back to home in Norway from Spain with my dogs and no wheels.
Then early in 2021, I got deported whilst being 300km away from my home in Norway, with just jeans and T-shirt to Scotland due to BREXIT. Not even back to England, because of overstaying.
Its been rough for me since March 18th 2020 lets just say…
Now that I am totally financially fucked, I decided to try what other so called activists do, ask for help and to see if there is any solidarity in this part of the world being so close to USA.
I see people online, content creators doing walk and talks earning a good sum from that alone and on top of that, receiving donations of great numbers to start projects, which make my eye brows raise every time, but the thing is – a real activist has mud under his nails and workers hands, not keyboard softened fingertips and a posh microphone – whilst asking for masses amounts of money.
This was the “Reclaim The Land Project” 2013 I think it was, in a place called Ciggerones, Orgiva in Spain. When I arrived it was empty and abandoned from when the river swept everything away, and I invited people like woofers and Couchsurfers to come and today there are around 200 people living there. Unintentional community, works.
