guerrilla mama medicine is about re-centering the lives of mothers in order to create and sustain strong anti-violence, morally liberatory communities.
yeah, gmm was inspired by a vision i had the first time i visited southern mexico. back in 2001. post 9/11. i felt like if people could be healthy then they could fight the revolution more effectively. simple as that. the first incarnation of the idea came as: people’s guerrilla medicine. that was looking for simple accessible ways to live healthy.
in a dreamy way i was envisioning a way to meet immortality. the revolution that never dies.
and so it focused around lifestyle choices: raw food, sound political analysis, meditation, herbalism, etc.
after i returned from eastern africa, traveled through the eastern congo, sat with women survivors, saw the vast difference between the fecundity o fthe land and the earth and the violence of the global system that paid men to rape women, destory their bodies, i envisioned: guerrilla mama medicine.
