"Apartheid Solutions" are False solutions. Beware Apartheid Solutions.

"Apartheid Solutions" are False solutions. Beware Apartheid Solutions.

Apartheid solutions" that offer healthy food, living wage jobs, peace, clean environment, and education to some while the rest and usually the vast majority live in oppression and degradation, exploited to create "the better world" for a few, are false solutions.

And if you look deeply, you will see that everything is like that, apartheid.

Even our "food movements."

Furthermore, as a caution to those now "benefiting" from apartheid, if anyone is excluded, one day all will be excluded. As resources shrink, and crises increase from the way we humans live, more and more will have to be excluded from the "privileged."

Be inclusive. Be bottom up. Be community-centered.

Everything else is a false solution, a mere illusion of change, a mere illusion of "movement" work.
