Went to my first #RadicalRoutes gathering last weekend.
RR is a mutual aid network of mostly housing co-ops. The website is shitty but we're working on it: http://radicalroutes.org.uk/
It was loads of fun meeting punx from all over these isles. Co-ops are a hack of the capitalist economy and I hope more people will be able to experience living and working together in them going forwards.
Though there is a lot of discussion about finance the main benefit of the network is all the new friends made!
