> Friends, there is a huge lesson in this for us ... not that we can all 'go

> their present and future in their own hands, can be a very meaningful
> movement arising from the current crisis. Just one of many new directions
> for us to imagine and practice, and where we can't ourselves practice it,
> at least support and advocate, for instance through building respnosible
> consumer links with primary producers, recognising the enormous
> contribution of workers on the land and in  forests and other ecosystems,
> crafts, industries and elsewhere to our lives, challenging political and
> economic structures that continue to exploit them
> there was also this news from India with interesting implications, though
> not necessarily challenging capitalist markets per se, and with some state
> facilitation: https://www.foundingfuel.com/article/the-satara-uprising/
> are there similar initiatives and movements elsewhere we can be inspired
> by and/or learn from? Can people send examples?
> We hope to start a webinar/online dialogue series soon, one global thrugh
> the Global Tapestry of Alternatives, another for India through Vikalp
> Sangam ... watch this space for announcements soon!
