texmexsaThis picture documents my first meeting with Helen Samuels (left), the inspirational Ashoka Tribe member who inspired me to look into the ‘collective’ organising system. From our initial meetings, i began to work with the idea of setting up collectives.

The CCC and DC collectives were formed in the months after meeting Helen. Both of these had their own characteristics and objectives, each working on separate projects (that converged on the jUNe SafeHouse project) and eventually lead to me being part of setting up disposable collectives for United Nations convergences.

The SafeHouse project was also the initial foray into the use of spaces to potentialize collectives towards direct action. Both JungleHouse projects, and their respective collectives (DurbanKnights and Riot20) all result from this meeting.
