London #InternationalRebellion occupation of five areas has survived everything the police has thrown at us so far. People keep being arrested, released, and coming back for more. Around 200 police moved to clear Parliament Square, and still failed.
People have been joining in that never knew about XR until these past few days. We've grown in numbers since Monday and we're looking forward to more fresh faces from Wales and Scotland arriving soon.
The anarchic organisation structure present at the Marble Arch camp has shown me that even with so few resources, even just a bunch if tents on a road, anarchy works. I went to get some food at the donations-based food stall and ended up cooking and serving for two hours. It's all just working. It's great.
32000 years ago, during the last ice age, an Arctic ground squirrel was gathering food, which it took back to its burrow. That squirrel never ate all of the fruit and seeds it stashed, and so they stayed there, buried under the Arctic permafrost. Forgotten.
Until the squirrel's ancient home was discovered by a group of Russian scientists. The research team managed to grow 36 plants from those ancient seeds. Here's one of them – an ancient type of campion (Silene stenophylla).
