About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

Antifa are on the ground in Texas helping relief efforts

When Hurricane Harvey struck Southeast Texas this weekend, bringing torrential rain and severe flooding, scott crow (name intentionally in lower case) knew he had to get to Houston to help evacuate friends. He plans to return to contribute where he can provide relief to the thousands of people who have been displaced by the storm.

This is nothing new for crow.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he and others, like Malik Rahim and Sharon Johnson, set up a system of providing food, water, supplies and basic medical aid to those in vulnerable New Orleans neighborhoods. The organization, dubbed Common Ground Collective, grew to include several health clinics and helped displaced residents move back into their neighborhoods where infrastructure had failed.

But crow and hundreds of first responders in New Orleans in Houston just like him don’t come from a government or non-profit background.

They’re anarchists.
