This Thursday I'll be helping to launch Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief in Montréal alongside editor Cindy Milstein at Librarie l'Euguélionne. The collection draws together reflections on the relationship between structural losses, mourning, and resistance. As Silvia Federici describes it "uncovers the destruction of life that capitalist development leaves in its trail. But it is also witness to the power of grief as a catalyst to collective resistance."
My contribution to the book, Fragments Towards a Whole, is a deeply personal one, addressing childhood sexual abuse and its refractions on my life as an activist. Told through fragments across time, it searches for connections and connection, and pushes towards the ideal of collective action as a salve for personal trauma.
