We have thought of a little something. Every couple of Saturdays we will post a fundraiser that we believe is in need of attention. Be it a sanctuary, a prison support crowdfunding or an arrest fund, we will share something folks should look into. We have about 20k followers when we combine all social platforms. If just 500 of those followers were to donate $2 each, we would be raising $1000 overnight. For those who cannot afford donating, sharing and connecting with other folks who would be able to is also a HUGE deal, as it is to interact with the Solidarity Saturday posts by liking and commenting so that the algorithms in social media boost the post up.
When folks have donated, they can take a screenshot of it and share it alongside the link, encouraging others to do the same. That should help the fundraiser spread even more!
Today, we want to share a fundraiser that was created in September with the aim of helping multiple groups and individuals that had been arrested for different actions. From all of those people, some have already received what they needed and some cases have been dropped or found not guilty, but there still are seven unnamed individuals that cannot talk about their case yet but that will need help, plus eleven codefendants that will go to trial in Kent for the Slaughterhouse Blockade that happened in August.
This fundraiser aims to collect 3000€ and it has only managed to raise a third of the goal. It would be wonderful if we could manage to raise another 1000 by the end of the week.
The currency in this fundraiser is Euros, but you can donate using whatever currency works for you. You can use PayPal or a bank card to make it even easier.
You can find the fundraiser in the link below:
So let’s do this! Donate a couple of euros (or more if you can afford it), screenshot it, share it with your own friends and let’s all pull together to show all our solidarity with folks facing legal action because of their convictions. And if you cannot afford donating, remember that you are still part of this and you can help in many other ways!
SIDE NOTE FOR BIG ACCOUNTS/INFLUENCERS: Please use your reach responsibly and be part of Solidarity Saturdays. If that’s your thing, make a little video and share it in your stories asking people to donate. Share the links. Help out with the power you have!
Solidarity is our biggest, strongest weapon. It is time we start using it.
NO ONE IS FREE UNTIL ALL ARE FREE!
