Dear Comrades and Friends,
We are still concerned about how some of the repressions related to the
pandemic, and the health risks of the pandemic itself, might be
affecting each of us and we want to reach out to check in with the
broader EYFA Network to see what needs there are in terms of support
that we could offer. In the meantime, until we figure all that out, we
propose this on-going, albeit temporary, support structure.
*What is it?*
CrisiFund is EYFA's small support initiative for our comrades, friends,
network members. For groups that had to stop their actions due to corona
virus, but still have expenses. Or, because of the crisis, started new
activities or would like to do something and need money to continue or
kick it off.
For people, who lost their jobs or other sources of money, who can't
afford the current way of living, who support other people in need, who
suffer from capitalism even more...
To take advantage of our broad social network we wish to connect people
from different parts of europe in order to exchange whatever we have -
info and money, LOVE AND SOLIDARITY, poems and slingshots. Against
isolation, individualism, and borders.
- let us know if you need financial support - no long explanation
required, just short info how much. it can be you, your group, an
initiative or somebody you know*.
* at this point the budget we have is 3.000euro. the amount per
group/person is 300 euro, mostly because we don't want to have to
choose, set arbitrary criteria, vote - if the total amount is not enough
we will offer each group/person less. write us in the case that you
really need more - maybe we can find a solution.
- let us know if you have money or other resources to share and how can
we help you to reach out to others in need.
- share with us your fundraising and crowdfunding campaigns so we can
spread the word - via emails, on our website and twitter
- share any materials produced in the pandemic time so we can all learn,
maybe you want people to translate it?
- let us know if there are other needs that have come up in your
collectives/communities in terms of trainings/skills, online
infrastructure, communication tools, etc.
This is a call-out we are sending now only to our wider newsletter list,
please keep in mind the limited funds while forwarding. If anything
changes you will be notified.
