Communal income generation

One way to have impact as a commune

Ceci n’est pas un hotel ❤

Cobudget funds, went towards legal fees for the formerly incarcerated community & our revolutionary prison syllabus
The Embassy Free Store — funding by cobudget funds, and stocked with the things guests and residents leave behind

Communal income generation is amazing (totally different from work)

Radical Chambermaiding :) it doesn’t feel like labour when it’s for communal purposes
The Anarchist Library, funded by cobudget funds; guests get a personally selected book for the duration of their stay.
