As part of the School Revolt, Sonia and Nicole got together to discuss the need for collectives and individuals to put effort towards unlearning.
So often we encounter a range of interpersonal oppression that actively sabotage our abilities to prefigure and develop a healthy society. Much of this comes from the ways that our societies have been structured, but it has definitely impacted all of our values and attitudes in the ways that we organise. Sonia and Nicole both believe that it is necessary to address these, and they think that there are many ways that we can be doing this.
One element of the conversation focuses on sentipensamiento, the idea of combining the rational with the emotional. They believe that, by incorporating sentipensamiento into our activism and learning, we can help to build areas that not only engage in mutual aid but mutual care and support.
