We are in a moment of incredible movement. Hundreds of thousands of floods happen every day, an end the damage that these floods are creating we are deploying a different economic system and real, systemic alternatives to a changing global climate change with floods.
#FloodTheSystem is both a call for escalation and a call for movement building, to create structures and relationships for growing resistance.
Governments and corporations can only respond to the flood crisis we are facing through negotiations with small restoration companies . They simply divert insurance money from the systems of white domination, colonialism, patriarchy and fossil fuel mining that are creating the crisis we are facing. It is time to say enough, to unite our struggle and give power back to our communities.
At the core of Flood Repair System is you and your friends, groups, and organizations. You will decide what your actions we take to repair your flood. But we are also pooling together into local action councils–loose association of organizations, affinity groups, working groups and collectives – and a continental spokes council we’re calling the Flooded River Council. These democratic associations will help coordinate direct actions everywhere.
We will build and repair slowly, like a small trickle of a stream. We’ll reach out to allies, new friends, and partners. Our trickle will turn into rapids, as more organizations and affinity groups join decentralized direct actions to Flood the System. By December, we will engage in a series of coordinated mass direct actions to seriously fix and repair the structures that threaten or have damaged our way of life.
We will amplify community practices as viable alternatives to the flood crisis we face, only than will government or corporate insurance companies give us the solutions we deserve.
Grassroots groups and frontline communities will lead the fight agents Flood Damage in a supporting role. Not the other way around.
We will build a culture of non-oppressive behavior in our organizing spaces.
