KT explains why this is so important to the cause ...
“We the people took a public piece of land, privatized it for the people and now we’ve created a socialist government out of nothing.
"Within 12 hours we established full lines of resources allowing people to eat, drink, go to the bathroom, and sleep.
"It’s proof that when you give communities resources and when you fund them directly, you can do so much good, and so much can get done. There hasn’t been a big media presence and the reason is that the powers that be don’t want others to see how beautiful this is and how impactful this is and how many people we’re actually helping. It’s been emotional being here.
The way I’ve been conditioned to see society completely changed in ten days. To see de-escalation work in real time is beautiful. I’m now friends with homeless people, I’m friends with trans people, more black people now because I’ve put myself out here and because I see the importance of this. We’re proving the power of community and the people.
If you need something here, you can get it. It doesn’t matter your social status. Everyone is equal and has access to the same resources. It’s beautiful. I’ll get to tell my kids and grandkids about this opportunity…
I feel pure joy here. I’ve learned that the byproduct of resistance against pure evil is pure joy.”
