This is a The Final Straw Radio mini-episode and we just had a quick conversation with Assata, an activist and member of The Yellow Hammer Alternative, an Alabama-based far left autonomous mutual aid group. We talked about relief work done by Assata’s group around Hurricane Harvey, in Mobile with Food Not Bombs and in the run-up to Hurricanes Irma and Jose. More about Assata’s group can be found at theyellowhammeralternative.com and you can make donations to their and others efforts in the gulf at https://www.youcaring.com/theyellowhammeralternative

Globalize Solidarity—Mutual Aid against planetary domination
Submission deadline: July 1, 2017
Things can’t get worse? We at the Fifth Estate have been wondering and warning for decades.
Whether you have been with us through these hard times or are just connecting with us in the time of Trumpist danger, we want your suggestions for finding anarchist, counter-authoritarian ways out of our social, political and environmental predicaments.
As anarchists, we may often find ourselves in challenging situations. This TOTW takes a looks at the anarchist relationship with natural disasters (hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, etc) and other major adverse events like insurrection, war, riots, and general trouble.
From Little Black Cart
This has been a hard quarter. The heat just didn't seem to stop, the drama has been even worse, it is enough to make one question the fundamentals... Not of the dream of anarchy, but of leaving the house and entering the world.
