221A is pleased to announce Comix for Community Solidarity, a social infrastructure program developed by 221A Fellow William Dereume and Librarian Vincent Tao.
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
This phrase, often referenced as a working definition of solidarity, has been attributed to Murri artist and activist Lilla Watson. She demurs to claiming ownership of something borne of collective labour. Watson’s preferred citation: Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s.
