The design is made up by a portrait of Durruti and his quote: “No government fights fascism to destroy it. When the bourgeoisie sees that power is slipping out of its hands, it brings up fascism to hold onto their privileges.” The shirt available in black or white and unisex or femme/fitted style.</p> <img alt="Black and white unisex t-shirts with Durruti portrait." data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="8dd584a0-ae54-4f5b-a613-7708feb4d6c2" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/durrutti-t-shirts-side-by-side.png" class="align-center" /> <p> </p> <p><strong>This is how the initiators of the T-Shirt of the Month project describe it with their own words:</strong></p> <p><em>The ‘T-Shirt of the Month’ project is a collaboration between Working Class History, an educational grassroots project that tells history from below through various formats and channels, and dna merch, a social enterprise based in Berlin and ally of the transnational workers’ network ExChains.<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The ‘T-Shirt of the Month’ project follows the idea of ‘prosumption’, a more sustainable and collective approach to production and consumption. dna merch, together with a global network of artists, creates exclusive shirt designs, inspired by events and stories from the Working Class History archive. Each shirt is strictly limited edition and made from 100 percent organic cotton: it will be available for pre-order for one month only and, afterwards, will be sewed and printed in the exact amount that were ordered that particular month!<br clear="none" /> <br clear="none" /> The t-shirts of the month are literally shirts to make working class history. They do so in these ways:</em></p> <ul> <li><em>They help fund our work promoting history from below across the various channels of Working Class History.</em></li> <li><em>They help to sustain Humana Nova, a worker-owned textiles co-op in Croatia.</em></li> <li><em>Through dna merch, part of the income generated will be used to support militant grassroots labour unions in South Asia.</em></li> <li><em>They bring exposure and income to designers and artists with underprivileged and underrepresented backgrounds.</em></li> </ul> <p>To order your shirt(s) please follow <a href="https://shop.workingclasshistory.com/collections/t-shirt-of-the-month" moz-do-not-send="true">this link</a> or click on the shirt and make sure to key in the discount code <strong>GEO2021</strong>.</p> <img alt="Humana Nova Worker-Owners and Working Class History" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="42a7285c-3818-43d7-bf70-32cc0e79349d" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/Humana-Nova-Coop-We-are-WCH.jpg" class="align-center" /> <p> </p> <p><strong>PS: You can pay with any debit or credit card and don’t need a Pay Pal account.

Rather, he saw himself as a working member of a family and a tribelet—organizations which he knew from birth as trustworthy, permanent features of the world, organizations which he felt sure would take care of him when he was sick and weak as well as when he was strong and able.</p> <p>Generosity was thus a prime virtue among the Ohlones, but it was even more than that. Generosity was a way of life. It was the only way a proper person could conceivably behave—toward a relative especially, but also toward the world at large. As an early missionary noted: “They give all they have. Whoever reaches their dwelling is at once offered the food they possess.”</p> <p>The way of sharing gave the Ohlones a totally different outlook and character from ours. They were not “stimulated to obtaining consequence among themselves,” as Captain Vancouver put it. Competitiveness was not an Ohlone virtue. In fact, to stand out and place one’s self above the society was considered a serious vice—the mark of a dangerous, grossly unbalanced person. When praise and honor came, they came not to the egotists or the braggarts, but to those who showed the most moderation and restraint, to those who were able to share most generously.</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="https://www.shareable.net/a-life-of-sharing/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Read the rest at Shareable</a></p> <p> </p> </div> </div> <div> <div class="label">Insert an image into the text</div> <div> <div> <figure class="image no-upscale"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2021-12/ohlone-village-painting-san-mateo-historical-association.jpg" width="1024" height="515" alt="&quot;&quot;" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </figure> </div> </div> </div> <div> <div class="label">Publication date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-12-03T12:00:00Z">December 3, 2021, 12:00 pm</time> </div> </div> Fri, 03 Dec 2021 21:54:55 +0000 Josh Davis 6073 at https://geo.coop https://geo.coop/gleanings/life-sharing#comments
