Mutual Aid with Mila is a podcast “centering on building mutual aid” that has only 3 episodes so far, but offers a good introduction to the concept of mutual aid and, most recently, gives a broad view of how it can be applied to current events. The latest episode frames the recent Canada-wide solidarity protests against pipeline developments through unceded Wet’suwet’en land as mutual aid.
Today I get a bit open ended with the term mutual aid but bare with me. I speak about the #shutdowncanada movement in relation to mutual aid. You can read about the land protectors at unistoten.camp/ and for the water protectors stopaltongas.wordpress.com/ these actions are not protests, they are protecting our planet for all of us. Sounds like mutual aid to me.Mutual aid against colonialism
