Feral Crust Autonomous Space (Philippines)

We currently run a community based autonomous space in slum area of Taguig, Philippines.

Though by next year we are planning to move in the edges of Davao City
aiming to setup a small permaculture land project, an infoshop and social
center based in the countryside, much closer to nature.

In relation to land project, we are starting to edit a handbook about
natural healing for common illnesses using herbal remedies that are
locally grown. Furthermore, we also want to include a bit of political
perspective and other vital information related to do-it-yourself healing.

Few of our sources which inspired as to make a handbook are radical and
informative publications such as Rina Nissim's Natural Healing in
Gynecology, Yeast of your worries: A Yeast Infection Survival Handbook by
Erica Zelfand, and Threads: Changes During the Menstrual Cycle; Feminism
and Anatomy; Medical Model of Menstruation; Politics of so-called PMS by
Lisa. Such important material are quiet rare to find out here. And we
think it is very useful and helpful to publish one reclaiming health and
well-being, socially and ecologically.

We wish to publish a handbook which gives information relevant to our
local context and we need support for printing and distribution.

If so you can help us about this matter, please get in touch. We are happy
to make friends, to make connection in an intimate and mutual way hoping
to deepen further solidarity across borders.

We hope to circulate the handbook to our friends in the city and
countryside, to our family, to our neighborhood, to autonomous activists
and immediate network such as local infoshops and autonomous spaces.

 Love, solidarity and respect,
Feral Crust collective
