Organic meats may be better for the animals, but not the planet – BGR

Posted: December 30, 2020 at 10:53 pm


without comments

The Earth is warming up. You might not notice in your day-to-day life, but the increasingly devastating storms, massive wildfires, and catastrophic die-off of the oceans tropical reefs are undeniable. We know that greenhouse gases from fossil fuels are a huge burden on the planet and climate, but farming has also been cited as a contributor to such emissions.

Organic farming, both in plants and animals, has grown in popularity in recent years for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, if you were hoping that organic livestock was somehow better for the planet than conventional practices are, a new study crushes that dream soundly.

The research, which was published in Nature Communications, focused on the greenhouse gas emissions produced during livestock farming. There are many sources of emissions when it comes to livestock farming, including the production of the food that the animals eat, methane gas from the animals themselves, and gas produced during the decomposition of their waste.

The study reveals that while emissions from organic livestock are initially lower thanks to the fact that fertilizer isnt used in the production of the feed, the fact that the animals are typically smaller (and less meaty) means that farms ultimately have to raise more of them in order to maintain their business. This increase in animals offsets the initial benefits of organic livestock, and the emissions totals are essentially the same.

The researchers looked at different kinds of livestock for their study and found that organic beef breaks even with conventional beef, but organic chicken farming actually produces more emissions than conventional practices. Pork, on the other hand, results in fewer emissions when raised organically, which is interesting.

Now, theres a bit asterisk here that has to be addressed. Organic farming, whether its animals or plants, does have benefits in terms of the animals and the land. When organic practices are paired with livestock being allowed to graze at their leisure (chicken tractors are awesome, you should Google it), the animals might not end up as big and meaty, but theyre at least allowed to live and behave like the animals they are, rather than serving as garbage bags to dump food and drugs into until theyre ready to be killed and eaten.

Unfortunately, the data shows that this doesnt help the planet any more than conventional farming does. The good news is that if we can get a handle on our fossil fuel usage, farming wouldnt necessarily have to change much at all. In fact, based on the latest estimates from the EPA, agriculture as a whole accounts for just shy of 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions, compared to the nearly 30% that comes from vehicles and 22% from industrial processes.

Pinole Blue Is Working to Honor Mexican Heritage through Food and Community Service – Food Tank

Posted: at 10:53 pm


without comments

Pinole Blue, an organic blue corn company in Wichita, Kansas, is working to support Indigenous communities in Chihuahua, Mexico while promoting traditional Mexican and Indigenous foods.

The company sells pinole, a mixture of ground maize and cacao beans, that is known for its nutrition properties, such as high levels of carbohydrates, protein, and antioxidants. They also sell tortillas made from blue corn, which contains higher amounts of antioxidants and fiber than white corn.

Growing up, Eddie Sandoval, founder of Pinole Blue, regularly visited Chihuahua and often ate pinole. But he noticed that a few stores sell it in his area today. Hoping to introduce more people to the mixture, Sandoval launched the business in 2017 from his garage.

Were trying to make healthy, organic food for everyone, Sandoval tells Food Tank.

In addition to selling pinole and tortillas, Pinole Blue also strives to support the Rarmuri, an Indigenous community in the Sierra Madre Occidental. Some members of the community are known for their ability to run long distances.

The Rarmuri rely on the environment to practice a traditional lifestyle, such as making their own clothes and raising their own food. But droughts caused by deforestation and climate change could threaten their livelihood. Other factors, like mineral extraction and local drug traffickers, also present a danger to the community.

My family is from Chihuahua, so my entire life Ive seen how the community has struggled, says Sandoval. I wanted to find a way to give back.

Pinole Blue is donating a portion of its earnings to the Rarmuri community. The company also partners with the county commissioner in Chihuahua to conduct food drives and provide clothing and other basic necessities to the Rarmuri. In October, the company provided food to 92 families. Additionally, Pinole Blue sponsors Mara Lorena Ramrez, a 24-year-old long-distance runner from the community.

Pinole Blue is also working with businesses to support other Indigenous communities in the United States. During the early months of the pandemic, Pinole Blue donated food to displaced workers and partnered with a restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona to distribute food and other materials to the Navajo Nation.

It was pretty cool to see two cultures use similar products and eat similar foods, says Sandoval.

Sandoval tells Food Tank that Pinole Blue was also hit hard during the early months of the pandemic. But, they created an account on the social media platform TikTok. Within months, Sandoval says they were able to engage more customers and improve their online sales.

During the pandemic, people want comfort food, says Sandoval. The Latinx and the Hispanic community saw our products and remembered having it as a kid.

As Pinole Blue continues promoting the products online, Sandoval hopes that he can connect more people with what he calls heritage superfoods.

Organic meat has the same impact on the worlds climate as normal meat – ZME Science

Posted: at 10:53 pm


without comments

Organic meat, usually highlighted as friendlier to the environment, actually has a climate cost as high as conventionally farmed meat. According to a new study, which estimated the greenhouse gas emissions (GEI) resulting from different foods in Germany, the only eco-friendly meat is no meat at all.

A team of German researchers wanted to explore the invisible environmental costs of food production, from land use and fertilizers to methane emissions and transportation. They focused on meat products, dairy, and plant-based food and compared organic and conventional production in each case.

The results are striking. Compared to conventional farming, organic methods improve the emissions profile of dairy and plant-based products, reducing their impact on the planet, because organic farming bans the use of mineral nitrogen fertilizers, which brings down the emissions costs of this production method.

But meat was the big exception.

Conventional and organic methods of meat accounted for similar high emissions costs, the study showed. For the researchers, this might be because organic livestock needs more land to satisfy the welfare standard and because of its lower productivity, making it less efficient than conventional methods.

Emissions from conventional livestock come from their manure and, for cows and sheep, by burping methane. The grain can also lead to emissions if its linked to deforestation. While organic cows dont eat imported fodder and are grass-fed, they grow more slowly and release more emissions before slaughter.

We expected organic farming to score better for animal-based products but, for greenhouse gas emissions, it actually doesnt make much difference, Maximilian Pieper, lead researcher, told The Guardian. But in certain other aspects, organic is certainly better than conventional farming.

But that was only one part of the study. Pieper wanted to make the environmental cost more tangible for consumers, to put a clear environmental price tag on different meat products.

According to the teams calculations, conventionally-produced meat would have to be 150% more expensive than now to account for the environmental impact. By comparison, organically-produced and plant-based foods would have to cost just 6% more. In other words, organic meat is priced to reflect its environmental impact, while conventional meat is cheap because no one is paying for the environmental damage it causes.

The research is based on the polluter pays principle, which suggests that those whose actions cause harm to the environment should bear the responsibility of paying for it. This would be represented perfectly in the choice to eat a meatier diet over one with more plant-based foods but only if the price of meat actually reflected the true environmental cost.

A very cheap piece of meat is actually hiding the true impact on the planet and providing no incentive to make better food (and environment) choices. But if the polluter pays principle is applied, the higher cost of meat would encourage a shift away from more environmentally-harmful diets based on meat towards greener ones richer in plants.

Of course, it isnt that simple. Increases in the price of vegetables and fruits would make healthier food unaffordable for many. And essential food, which for many people includes beef and dairy for nutritional purposes, shouldnt become unaffordable. To prevent this, the researchers suggested using government subsidies and social compensation measures as alternatives to an extra environmental tax.

If changes are applied sensitively, there would also be trickle-down benefits, the researchers argue. Meat consumption would be reduced by driving more sustainable choices with the cost. This would free up land from livestock that could be returned to nature, which would help for the recovery of ecosystems around the world.

Marco Springmann from the University of Oxford, not part of the study, told The Guardian. The policy implications are clear: applying an emissions price across all sectors of the economy, including agriculture, would provide a consistent and much-needed incentive to change towards healthier and more sustainable diets that are predominantly plant-based.

The study was published in the journal Nature Communications.

Chicken shops, burgers and many new openings: The top food trends for 2021 – The Irish Times

Posted: at 10:53 pm


without comments

Cultured meat, McPlant burgers and robot waiters may be getting closer, but theres plenty of fine food heading our way in 2021

No one would have bet on food deliveries and meal kits topping the food trends for 2020, or imagined that wed be doing so much washing up and thats dishes, not hand washing were talking about but perhaps one of the biggest surprises this year was that so many new restaurants opened.

While there is less gastro babble than usual about what colour our food should be, whether we should be moving on from pea protein and quinoa, or if theres some unpronounceable ingredient that weve missed, if the end of this year is anything to go by, theres plenty of interesting eating ahead. So here you have it the food trends for 2021.

Nandos was history when Chimac burst onto the food scene with its addictive Korean fried chicken in 2019, and now theres a whole flock of crispy birds coming home to roost. Yes, the chickens are Irish, but not all of them are free range.

Youll find Cluck, Ian Ushers shiny new yellow food truck, looking sunny side up on Walkinstowns roundabout at weekends as it serves a KFC Korean fried chicken and a thoroughly decadent Mother Clucker, which is dripping in cheese.

Spreading the love for Nashville fried chicken and chicken skin fries are Peter Constant and his American fianc, Ashley Wright, who opened Fire Byrd in Ranelagh, after moving back to Dublin from Atlanta, Georgia, where he worked in food on the festival circuit.

Taiwanese fried chicken has joined the Instagram friendly line-up at Kakilang on Bachelors Walk, a welcome savoury course before your mango cheese foam bubble tea and Japanese souffl pancakes.

And for a limited time only, Happy Endings Street Food has a pop-up fried chicken joint in The Dorset Lounge, where youll get the Cheezus Mission spice buttermilk fried chicken with gochujang cheese sauce.

An unexpected breakout star, burgers are once again on point. People queued for hours during the spring lockdown for Rene Redzepis pop-up Noma burger in Copenhagen and now, with a slew of natural wines, it finds itself in a permanent home called POPL.

Gordon Ramsay is unleashing the flames on his own chain of Street Burger restaurants in London, with the predictably named Hells Kitchen burger on the menu, and is throwing wagyu and fresh black truffles at what surely must be called the Tone Deaf burger, an 80 luxury special for his Harrods outpost.

Closer to home, at the Dash Burger pop-up in Kevin Street, its all about smash burgers, the super simple LA-style burger that has a lattice of crispy bits around the edge after it has been smashed onto the grill to increase the surface area. They come in double patties, so theyre plenty thick.

Hush in Rathmines is doing sandwiches by day and burgers by night with its secret Hush sauce, with an impressive selection that extends to vegan options. A secret wine bar and tasting menu is planned.

Coming soon, well, as soon as he has repurposed a 36-seater bus, is Just Chubbys, an American style food truck being rolled out by Barry Stephens of 147 Deli. It will be parked outside The Magic Carpet Pub in Foxrock, and judging by his Instagram, theres going to be a ton of 147 Deli love going into his burgers and other dishes.

Baste, the spectacular barbecue pop-up at Harolds Cross Bridge, was due to move on at the end of this year, but now, with an extension to stay till August, they will be doing monthly whole animal cooks and will be opening up the space a bit more for other food trucks. The plan is to move Baste to a pub in the long term. And in Derry, the pitmasters at Lo & Slo, who have been cooking street food during lockdown, will be hitting the roads when they launch their new food truck in 2021.

777 will be taking things outdoors with 777 Afuera at the back of the Georges Street restaurant, transforming the former parking spaces into a new dining, drinking and socialising spot with cocktails served from the hatch of an Airstream trailer.

All the homemade pizza has not dulled our love for this Italian staple, and people are beating a path to the long awaited Little Forest in Blackrock where Reggie White, who put Pi pizza on the map, is at the helm of the wood burning pizza oven, using a slow-fermented base to make five different types of pizza. Its takeaway for now, with plans to add indoor dining in the new year with additional dishes on the menu.

Also, much loved for his pizza prowess is Giovanni Joe Oualadi, of Wood Fire Caf on Blessington Street, who has just opened a second WFC on Poolbeg Street.

And in West Cork, Stewart Bowes, who started Curly Stu pizza, selling Neapolitan pizza from a converted horsebox, is back on the road, youll find him pitched at Coal Quay Saturday market.

All of a sudden, the country is awash with thick, chocolatey cookies, giving us something truly beautiful to chew on, and were sure that theres absolutely no correlation between them and the Covid stone, especially if they come as an ice-cream sandwich. If youre a fan of New Yorks Levain cookies, head to Batch Cookies for your fix, you can order online, batchcookies.ie; and youll find Cordon Bleu level cookies and a load of choice at The Cookie Lounge, thecookielounge.ie. And for the best vegan cookies, head to Tiller + Grain in Frederick Street South, and Dublin Barista School on Anne Street South.

Yes, get ready for it. McDonalds is creating its very own plant-based line, imaginatively called McPlant and theyll be adding a plant-based meat patty which theyre developing with Beyond Meat, the Wall Street darling valued at over $8 billion.

Cultured meat is a phrase that is pushing hard to get recognised, but the culture in question has nothing to do with good breeding, its the Frankenstein lab grown stuff that starts life in a petri dish. Singapore is the first state to approve the sale of cultured meat, while SuperMeat, a startup company in Israel, is working on developing meal ready chicken.

Comestibles, green grocers, provisions call them what you want, one of the best things to come out of lockdown was the proliferation of fine green grocers sprouting out of restaurants such as Forest Avenue, Host, Michaels and Mamo. They may be temporary responses to our current situation, but more permanent green shoots have taken root in delis such as Toons Bridge in Georges Street, Margadh Food and Wine store in Howth, Salumi Grazing in Terenure, and Provider, the smart new green grocer in Harolds Cross, which is becoming a bit of a culinary hot spot.

While things seem to have stalled a bit on a food market in Smithfield, theres quite a bit of action happening elsewhere. Google has announced exciting plans for Bolands Mills, with talk of something similar to the English Market in Cork and Mercado San Miguel in Madrid. And with the Iveagh Market now back in the hands of the Guinness family, who have historically contributed so much to the Liberties, hopes are high that this building may once again become an important part of the community.

Oh, the things weve missed during lockdown! When British Airways and Quantas put their glasses, table ware and drinks trollies for sale online, the drinks trolleys were the first to be snapped up. And if youre looking to up your cocktails game, you could join Ashley Hupps 2.7 million TikTok followers, who watch the @theparadise.bartender strut her stuff as she whips up cocktails.

Theres always a robot story when it comes to the New Year, and this time its champagne pouring robots recruited to serve diners at the high-end M restaurant chain in London over the Christmas period. Theyre not replacing staff, were assured, although there are some exceptions. In Tokyo, a robot bartender was employed to make drinks at a railway station pub after humans had failed miserably.

Consider this the off-licence reset. What we really want now are the new hipper bottle shops, and we saw all manner of bottle shops and wine bars emerge in 2020, with low intervention wines and naturally sparkling pet nats at the fore.

Knead Pizza & Bottle Shop has opened upstairs in the Cat & Cage on Drumcondra Road, which has had quite the makeover, and is now home to this new pizza spot with a grab and go bottle shop with some interesting wines.

Wine Upstairs at Forest Avenue in Sussex Terrace has an impressive array from wine importers Wine Mason, and around the corner is newly opened Neighbourhood Wine, run by wine importer Shane Murphy and Master of Wine, Mick OConnell, with enough space in the bar to leave us all wondering if a wine bar may be in the offing in 2021.

Newly opened Winedown at Meltdown on Montague Street, is pretty much as it sounds amazing cheese toasties during the day, mellowing into a wine bar at night, with a more extensive evening menu.

Outside Dublin, Ger ODonoghue, who closed First Draft, has taken up permanent residence at This is It in Ennistymon; an in Galway, an offshoot of Loam, morphs from caf to a wine bar by night, and, in Tramore, James Brooke is heading up the Cellar at The Beach House, which will work as a wine bar when they open for indoor dining again. Meanwhile in Cork, after nearly two years of repairs after a devastating fire, Beverley Matthews Latitude 51 has reopened, now with a Parisian style cave-a-manger approach, combining a bottle shop with organic and biodynamic wines with casual small plates in the evening.

Weve all become more conscious about food packaging and sustainability, and leading the charge in our quest for zero waste are Small Changes Wholefoods in Drumcondra, and The Good Neighbour in Dundrum, which also has a pop-up in Terenure, where you can bring your own containers and buy by weight. And, the added bonus is, theyre both independent Irish companies.

Where will we be eating when we can travel again? If youre jumping on a plane, consider heading to Greece which Lonely Planet has named as the best place for organic food; and if youre keeping it local, the Burren Ecotourism Network tops Lonely Planets Best Tourism Project, which they described as a global leader for sustainable tourism.

Quite a few new Dublin openings slipped in at the end of the year, including Nannettis, the Italian restaurant in Dawson Street from James Cirillo of Cirillos; Sprezzatura in Rathmines; Rotana City in Parnell Street; Southbank Caf in Harolds Cross; Brother Hubbard at Arnotts; The Orange Goat in Killester; Moncks Green, an update to Woodstock, in Phibsborough; Yoi Ramen in Barrow Street, and Soup 2, a ramen and cocktail bar in Smithfield.

And a few more are coming our way in 2021. Theres talk that Clanbrassil House will launch Clanbrassil Hash in the New Year. Featuring their much-loved loaded hash brown chips, it will possibly be an outdoor venue. There are plans to open upstairs in Bread 41, which can only be a good thing. Watch out for Spatched, yet another chicken joint due to open in Dublin, and rumour has it that theyll be using free range chickens from Rings Family Farm. Meanwhile, in Donegal, all eyes are on Ciaran Sweeney, the former chef at Forest and Marcy who is working at the Lemon Tree in Letterkenny and is planning to open his own place when he finds the right spot. We cant wait!

Indeed, this also explains the reason everyone wants to live an organic lifestyle these days as it is the best kind of lifestyle. Living organic is not only healthy, but it is also fulfilling as you know that you are contributing positively to the ecosystem.

However, how exactly can you live an organic lifestyle? In this article, we will highlight 5 proven ways that can help you live an organic lifestyle easily, affordably, and enjoyably. These 5 ways are described below.

1. Eat organic

It becomes a lot easier for you to have an organic lifestyle when you eat organic foods. This means you need to learn to eat vegetables, fruits, and many other food items cultivated without the use of chemicals. You will also need to start taking meat processed without the use of hormones in closed factory environments. This is a very healthy way to live because chemicals such as pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, and so on can have a negative impact on your health. Besides, these chemicals can affect the environment.

2. Keep an organic garden

Another way to have an organic lifestyle is to keep an organic garden. When you have an organic garden, you can cultivate everything you need and get your pure organic foods whenever you need them. It is worthwhile to note that organic gardening is not a new trend because it has been around for a long period. However, it has only become more common in recent times as more people are becoming more conscious about the things they eat.

For your organic garden, you need to get organic seeds. Through composting, you can get all the nutrients that you need for your garden. However, it is important to pay particular attention to the needs and requirements of every plant. The same applies to soil conditions.

3. Maintain your beauty organically

The next way to live an organic lifestyle is maintaining your beauty organically. Foremost, you should understand that following an organic lifestyle doesnt mean you must stop using your beauty cosmetics. You can still maintain your beauty by making use of skin care products that are made with organic ingredients. The good thing here is that we have a lot of such products that are made from natural ingredients; therefore, getting what you need cannot be difficult.

From organic soaps to organic shampoos, organic creams, and many more, different kinds of organic products have been produced by different brands. This means that if you have a make-up addiction, living an organic lifestyle wont put you through the struggle of giving up on it. However, it is important to point out that some individuals are allergic to organic substances. If you happen to be one, it is advised that you consult your healthcare provider for a reliable solution that does not affect your ability to live an organic lifestyle.

4. Go for organic clothing

Living an organic lifestyle is not limited to the things you put inside your body; it can also be determined by what you put on the outside. This is where organic clothing comes into play. The kind of clothes that you wear can help you to live an organic lifestyle. As a result of this, make sure that the things you wear are made with materials that have been grown according to organic agricultural standards.

Going for organic clothing does not mean you have to sacrifice your comfort since organic clothing still makes use of materials like silk, wool, and cotton. The only thing different when it comes to organic clothing is that your choice as a responsible customer is a smart one.

5. Take organic supplements

If you are the type that is always busy, you might be considering taking organic supplements and this is understandable. This is because you would have little time to make organic foods; hence, you are more likely to eating anything available when you are hungry. Due to this, it is only logical that you take organic supplements such as Golden Monk Kratom and many more of such that are available on the market.

So, when you work extremely hard, you dont have to bother yourself about your health because the organic supplements will provide your body with all the nutrients it needs. The good thing about organic supplements is that they are not only beneficial to the body, but they also expose you to fewer health risks.

With the information provided in this post, you now understand everything you need to do whenever you want to start promoting your wellbeing by living an organic lifestyle.

Organic production on the rise across the European Union – Agriland

Posted: at 10:53 pm


without comments

The latest agriculture, forestry and fishery statistics from the European Union confirm that organic food output continues to increase across the continent.

The total organic area across the EU-27 in 2018 was 13 million hectares, corresponding to 8% of the total utilised agricultural area.

The total organic area is the sum of the area under conversion and the certified area. Before an area can be certified as organic, it must undergo a conversion process, which may take two to three years, depending on the crop.

A small majority of the EUs total organic area was located in just four member states: Spain (17.3%), Italy (15.7%), France (15.1%) and Germany (9.4%). These four member states had a higher collective proportion of the organic area (57.5%) than of total utilised agricultural area (51.3% in 2016).

The total organic area in the EU increased by 3.5 million hectares between 2012 and 2018. This is equivalent to an increase of just over one third (+37.2%). This upward development was noted in all member states, with one notable exception Poland.

Organic tillage land covered 6 million hectares across the EU-27 in 2018 and organic pastures and meadows mostly used for grazing organic livestock a further 5.6 million hectares.

Together these two types of land use accounted for about 90% of the EUs total organic crop area. The latest EU statistics confirm that organic permanent grassland dominates in Ireland.

The increase in organic output across the EU as a whole was driven by the above-average growth in the total organic area in France (+97.3% between 2012 and 2018, which added 1 million hectares of organic area) and in Italy (+67.7%, which added 0.8 million hectares) and supported by expansions in Spain (+27.9%), Germany (+27.2%) and Sweden (+27.4%).

The fastest expansions in organic area over the reference period were in Bulgaria and Croatia, where they tripled, adding a combined 160,000 hectares.

From 2012 to 2018, the share of total organic area in the total utilised agricultural area within the EU rose from 5.9% to 8%. There were some member states where this share was much higher, most particularly Austria (24.1%); Estonia (21.0%); and Sweden (20.3%).

In contrast, there were member states for whom the share of total organic area in the total utilised agricultural area was below, and sometimes well below, the EU average. These included, among others, France (7.0%); the Netherlands (3.5%); Poland (3.3%); and Romania (2.4%).

The potential for organic production can also be indicated by the area under conversion as a percentage of the utilised agricultural area. The highest shares of area under conversion in 2018 using this measure were in Italy (3.6%); Estonia (3.5%); and Greece (3.3%).

It takes a community to survive COVID and cancer | 48 hills – 48 Hills

Only rich white people get Corona. Do you know anyone who has got it?

The houseless, poverty skolaz chuckled as he refused another one of my attempts to hand him a mask.

The sad irony, as all of us poor people know too well, is this evil virus ended up killing more poor Black, Brown and indigenous peoples due to so many factors, not the least of which is poverty, medical racism, dangerous work conditions, and poor-people healthcare access.

Masks are for pussies, I dont wear a mask, Corona virus is a hoax, it wont kill meIm already dead Im having my damn birthday party no matter what , I dont trust these doctors no-how, we have been lied to before, I cant quarantine when we live in one room, my boss isnt giving any PPE, expects us to buy our own, I have to work no matter what, we get no sick leave, our sick leave means we are fired

From rural underclass to indigenous border resistor, to b-boy to pastor, so many of our come-unities in poverty, indigenous peoples, poor folks, since the beginning of this global terror have actively been discriminated against, forced to work, or passed disinformation, misinformation and confusion rooted in 528 years of medical apartheid, medical racism, removal, incarcerationcolonial terror, and the lies of the privileged class to us poor people back and forth among our communities.

There have been amazing acts of liberation from grassroots revolutionaries like Community Ready Corp, Oakland Brown Berets, Self-Help Hunger Program, Mask Oakland, Homies Empowerment Sacramento Homeless Union and Poor Peoples Economic Human Rights Campaign in Philly and us at POOR Magazine/Homefulness drastically increasing theradical redisibution of healthy meals and tents and blanketswe have been distributing for eight years on the streets to include, supplies, groceries, money, diapers, masks, hand sanitizers and medicine to more than 1,200 very poor housed and unhoused community across the Bay.

All the while there have been insane acts of genocide in the carceral nation in COVID like the cultural genocide of indefinite sentencing and false border detention of families in this stolen land.

It doesnt help so many of us folks scattered across this land have been ruled over by a rapist, criminally negligent wealth-hoarder whose leadership has helped the United States have the highest COVID numbers in the world. And please believe poverty and racism has everything to do with so much about staying healthy

I am not pro-Big Pharma or pro-White medicine. I am one of these confused peoples, notwithstanding my light-skinned privilege, I am the daughter of a traumatized, disabled, angry indigenous Afro-Taino woman, who was tortured and experimented on as a child, whose thyroid gland, ovaries and heart were poisoned by those experiments and who passed way too young because of the damage of all of that to her poor body. Since age 18 I was on poor people hellthcare plan (read: no healthcare) and my idea of care was an 18-26 hour wait in an emergency room for everything from an inhaler to a cast and watched my fierce mama take on the racist classist doctor class when they tried to say she wasnt entitled to cardio-rehab programs cause she was on state poor people insurance aka Medi-Cal and only offered her a nine-pill cocktail of Big Pharma as her only solution.

What I do know is I got this shit and it almost killed me.

So if anyone cares to read on, I am writing this story for the sole purpose of helping fellow poor and indigenous peoples figure out how to survive and think through this nightmare we have collectively found ourselves in.

I also know that masks, social distancing and hand-washing arent everything but its something and right now, in addition to taking extra care of our immune systems, its all we have and frankly anything to avoid this killer illness is worth doing cause it is not something you ever want to get if you can avoid it.

How to you shelter in place if you have no place?

The day the Shelter-in-Place order was enacted, POOR closed all of our multiple in-person teaching programs including our liberation school for very lolw-income, homeless, disabled, indigenous youthDeecolonize Academy,Po Peoples radiotrainings, community writing workshops and support work and at the same time began amping up our street distribution work, as so many of the huge non-profiteers ended up shutting down, leaving thousands of fellow poverty skolaz/ houseless and poor people with no food, no supplies and no shelter.

We increased our two days a week on the street to four days a week and we took all the masks we had collected when the fires from the summer happened to distribute to everyone that needed them as well as hand sanitizers and cleaning supplies to folks on the street who had no access to water much-less soap or paper towels. And because so many poltricksters are evil and people are haters, were still struggling with the violence called sweeps even in a pandemic.

Internally at POOR Magazine we adopted all the safety protocols we could possibly do and provided each other with PPE never went out without masks and gloves and practiced social distancing and constant hand washing and as much safety as we could manifest. From March to May we distributed to more 800 people each week all across the Bay.

And then on May 25th, my birthday, something happened. A member of our community came down with COVID. The next day my son literally collapsed saying he was too weak to stand up, and the following day, I almost fainted, and another member of our Homefulness family also fell ill. We closed everything else were doing down, sent everyone home and got tested and lo and behold four of us formerly houseless residents of this beautiful liberation village called Homefulness had contracted COVID-19.

I lived in the school/ office/recording studio/Mac Labbuilding, so all of the group activities and bathroom use and traffic and supplies came in and out of the place me and my son lived. I, as someone who literally was on the street houseless with my mama for all of my childhood and then again before we moved to Homefulness in 2013, was happy and blessed to even have a roof, a home and safety.

But in some ways at this moment meant we werent as safe, because as we un-packed it our private areas were public and we had no way to control that, so we werent able to really prevent contact.

Me and Tibus reality is sadly like a lot of poor people living communally, like the more than 830 families we supportweekly atSliding Scale Cafe/Mercadito de Cambio at Homefulness with masks, food, hand sanitizers, medicine, produce, diapers and groceries. Most of them live in communal housing and are unable to successfully quarantine even if any of them gets sick.

On top of that, unless they are engaged with Street Level Health project or some other indigenous medicine clinics, they struggle with access to their indigenous healing practices, living on this stolen land thousands of miles away from their villages and mamas and community doctors and yerbas (herbs).

All of our village elders convened an emergency meeting and we decided to close everything down, beginning with our school Decolonize Academy which we were already holding on zoom most days but now even the promotion ceremony was moved online, PNN-KEXU radioand all of our outreach work like Sliding Scale Cafe andRoofLESS radioso as not to put anyone else at risk, this being our first and foremost priority that we realized we must do so no-one else would suffer our fate.

It takes a ComeUnity to boost an immune system

While you could say that being embedded so deeply in community caused our collective virus, it also was responsible for our survival and eventual health.

First, we went into an arsenal to bump up our collective immune systems, determined to not end up in the increasingly filled up ICU and because we knew that white Science did not hold our collective cure.

A nutritionist and herbalist at Street Level Health Project created a tincture blend of baikal skullcap, red root, boneset, elecampane, usnea, and licorice (no licorice for those with high blood pressure) for each of us that we took religiously for four weeks 90 drops of horrible tasting wonderfulness in water. Michele Kim, and her fierce mama, one of our POOR Magazine solidarity fam created some beautifully amazing Korean healing soup, which was all me and Tiburcio and the other family member here could seem to eat.

I began an extremely rigid regimen of 1,000-4,000 mg of Vitamin C, (which I learned from a doctor in China),eight mg of zinc, 10 mg of melatonin, ginger, garlic, turmeric, reishi and Vitamin D every day and as much nettles, mullein, and other lung tonic teas as I could get. I cut all sugar out and replaced it barely with tiny slivers of the insanely expensive Marukan honey as prescribed by indigenous Filipino nurse /teacherSockie Lala Smith( referred by beautiful sisSTAR Pearl Ubungena.

I had heard that in France, for people that had asthma like me taking an antibiotic is a good idea to kill the infection that might grow in the lungs and so I got a Z-Pac or Zithro-Max, which if you ask a doctor for , they act like you are slanging it in the streets and make you fight them for, and to be clear this didnt cure me, but did take the edge off a bronchial infection that was growing in my weak lungs thanks for the violent attacks of this evil COVID.

Covid aint got nothing on the trauma in our heads

Minutes leaked into hours, hours into days and days into weeks. Time passed in that molasses way that time passes for traumatized people who cant stop thinking, worrying, activating, working because the minute we slow down, even a little, all that we are working so hard to forget fills our heads, we start obsessing and depressing and get lost in the silent terror of our trauma that lurks there in the shadows, that drives us to seek the mans poison, dangerous killer substances and our own death just to quiet the pain.

We held each other, not actually, but spiritually and metaphorically, held each others stories and shared those survival tips, survival thru the violence of our own dangerous minds, that has kept us alive this far even when we thought we couldnt go on any further. We prayed deeply in all the traditions each of us practice and fed the ancestors with offerings and requests for help. And then we just waited.

In two weeks, we felt sort of okay. Just be sure we waited another two weeks and then tested everyone in the village. We all tested negative. Twice. After a full six weeks, raising funds and acquiring a porta potty so community could use a bathroom not in someones house and public messaging posted all over the land as well as ongoing teachings/trainings with youth and elder residents, visitors and workers about COVID protocol and a whole overhaul of use of community space, we tentatively opened up for limited community service activity.

Although we were healed I never felt exactly the same. None of us would qualify as long-haulers but I never got back my sense of taste or smell. And even with the negative tests, I felt like my immune system was constantly being tested and for at least three weeks more I would teeter on what felt like the knifes edge of getting sick again and would amp up the garlic, ginger, mushroom, cilantro, mint caldo de pollo (chicken soup) and as much water and clear liquid as I could stand and more of the high doses of vitamin C and on and on and on.

Wealth-hoarding kills; radical redistribution heals

Now lets get real about something: These tinctures and vitamins and organic food and produce arent cheap. Health in this country is tied to access and resources. It is one of the many reasons we work soooo hard to get organic, homemade healthy food out to our Sliding Scale Cafe each week and why we collaborate with multiple bakeries, Green Gulch, the Fruit Guys, Phat Beetz and The Self-Help Hunger Program to get fresh produce harvested and distributed out to all the hundreds of very low, no-income families and elders we support weekly at Mercaditor de Cambio and across the Bay with houseless folks in RoofLESS radio.

When we buy food for our school and homefulness communities we only buy organic and this is not cheap and made possible by the radical redistribution principals we teach young folks with race and class privilege at our biyearly PeopleSkool. Its also why when we launched Homefuness with ComeUnity gardens it was always open to everyone to pick and eat and have and lastly it is because of conscious medicine makers like Bay HRT ( Bay Area Herbal Resource Team) who in addition to Street Level redistributes organic bugie vitamins and Fire Cider (an immune-boosting tincture).

From COVID to cancer

I have a theory, not at all proven, but a theory, that COVID attacks the immune system, allowing cancer cells grow, said Rupa Marya, a revolutionary doctor friend who has been working on a book to connect the way colonization causes our collective inflammation.

Two weeks ago, on December 15th, I went in for a perfunctory Pap smear and discovered that I in fact had cancer.

I have difficult newswe found cancer in your uterus.

As she spoke the doctors words seemed to lift out of the phone and drift off into the afternoon sky, as they did they melted down into a pastel blob blending into other words, grabbing memories and turning them into images, dark into light. Fear into terror. I really dont know how but then I ended up on the floor of the POOR Magazine revolutionary service van that we use to transport endless amounts of disabled children and elders into and out of school, events, support. Im not sure how long I sat there, numb and confused. Really?? I murmured to my breaking self, hadnt I been through enough struggle for 10 people in my life? did I really need more loss, more sorrow, more evil, more to overcome?

It was a blur. My Mama Dee who always sent me messages from the other side of the spirit journey, sent me a message, cut and dry like she always did, without any fat or frills, in a blog of survivor stories by a Boricua sister that even looked a little like her named Dee M. Yea it was mama alright, It stated simply If you catch it early you will be ok, mama and her jokes.

White science I had never trusted, never had success or trust in, came through, claiming after a CT scan that a robot could take all my life-giving parts out, that I must do this procedure quickly, and trust implicitly in everything I had no trust in.

I consulted with my madrina in the Yoruba tradition I practice and learned that this was a full circle back to the day of having my son when I was houseless with my mama, when I was caught in a dangerous DV relationship that almost killed me and my mama was gravely ill with what took her to the other side. The best day of my life and the worst, all mixed together, where I was 5150ed in mywhite-science, softly violent hospital room, the police were called on me and I almost lost the beautiful life I had just brought into this world.

The robot and me

I did this surgery. On Monday December 21st, Solstice, the longest night of the year. The night that is like a womb itself. The weird robot was apparently 100 percent successful.

They handed pain-killers out to me like it was candy and threw me out of the hospital way too soon and Im still alive. The intense pain subsides a little more every day and I grapple with that this terrifying lesson I really didnt need to learn taught me.

For one thing, cancer aint got nothing on the cancer called trauma that plagues my mind as I sit and try to rest, my thoughts racing. But community surrounds around me with a love blanket I cant even describe.

There is this magical thing called a Meal Train, set up by sister warrior- friend and collaborator Corrina Gould, who along with Fuifuilupe Niumitolu, Muteado Silencio, ISrael, Jeremy Miller, Nancy Chavez, Pearl Ubungen, Juju, Mama Blue, Mama sue Kuyper and Sue Ferrer, Jewnbug, Queennandi,Dee Allen, Joseph Bolden, Angel Haert, Yael, Paige, Tony, Leroy, Loa, Christy, JV, Westyn,Talibah,Frances, Momi, my beautiful son and so many more in my village have been here holding up skies, sending me food, buying groceries, offering love, rides and more, breaking through my deeply terrified head-space and layers of trauma and desperate alone-ness.

My mind wanders back to me and mama who were, above all, so desperately alone. Whenevercrisis would hit there was no-one to call, nowhere to stay, no one to talk to, or communityto call on. My mama was a mixed race, unwanted orphan, and unprotected child, who suffered severe abuse in orphanages and violent racist foster homes throughout her childhood and therefore trusted no one. She was left and hurt and betrayed over and over again. She had no reason to believe in people or institutions because they had always let her down, hurt or almost killed her. So crises hit us and we were all we had. Always.

I cant say the cancer caused the COVID but it wouldnt surprise me if it did. What I can say is this virus should be fought on every front. For everyone reading this please take these lessons VERY seriously, please integrate all safety practices you can to avoid it, from masks to social distance.

In addition, please overstand and understand that the other viruses called poverty, police terror, incarceration, racism, classism, and isolation in this stolen land are also extremely dangerous and our lives as humans arent meant to live in this hater, hoarding, I-got-mines bubble called krapitalism.

And for all of you that know this poverty skola, peoples souldjah is here, working my hardest, as I have always done, to resist, protest, manifest, implement, listen, pray, dream and walk into with you into decolonization, degentriFUKation and liberation so we can all heal together from all of these deadly pandemics before they kill us all.

Tiny and other skolaz will be on the road this spring and summer helping other houseless poverty skolaz launch Po Peoples Radio/POORNewsNEtwork outlets while also teaching/ sharing the medicine of Radical redistribution with as many wealth-hoarders as are ready to degentriFUK and decolonize- so other sites for Bank of ComeUnity Reparations can be launched to invite her to your town, church, group, college or encampment emailpoormag@gmail.comor go to@povertyskola on Twitter or@poormagazine on IG.
