Your link to Millicent Souris’s essay - thank you so much. I read and then re-read. It was perfect. Expressed my feelings (my fury, frustration and sorrow) right now so well.

‘The answer is always to read. I have to relearn that this is always the answer again and again. Many lessons like this need constant repeating’.

The answer, always.

And yes they do! (I too have had to relearn so many times...)

The lecture - it is so good! I do hope some day I will be able to attend in person one of your talks or lectures, to experience the whole thing.

Wow, this post is a special gift. Thank you, Alicia. I'm printing off the last 9 paragraphs and keeping them with me as a reminder of how important it is (and what it looks like) to put ourselves in the work.

I just finished No Meat Required and was also struck by the chapter on punk/political vegan restaurants! We're lucky enough to have one here in Valencia, La Mandrágora, which is anarchist, vegan, and pay what you can https://www.instagram.com/la_mandragora_/
