They invited the mayor to tour their community garden. I wouldn’t say this is part of a larger anarchist secession. At this point neither would the chop steering committee who’ve been working with city officials and housing developers to shrink their own space.

Just because building gardens could be radical doesn’t mean that’s what we’re seeing play out. Also a garden of their size is mostly for show unfortunately. As of now most people are relying on donations from the outside world.

Yes build autonomous zones but build them with people you’ve formed deep relationships with who won’t sell you out. The conception that autonomous zones need to be Petros dish experiments of random groups of people is false. Voluntary association is an anarchist principle but it’s also smart to fight for your liberation with those you know personally and share political affinity with.
