HWB is happy to share our latest podcast with you! This episode we talk with Nicole Rose of Solidarity Apothecary. Nicole works with HWB UK and travels to Calais to work with refugees. She has written a new book - well - listen to the podcast to hear all about it.
Nicole Rose is an organiser, grassroots herbalist and agroecologist living in England who has been active in struggles for human, animal and earth liberation for over 20 years. Nicole did a 3.5-year prison sentence aged 21 amidst a decade of state repression against the campaign to close down Europe’s largest animal testing company. She’s been supporting loved ones in prison for over 15 years and recently founded the Solidarity Apothecary, a project supplying free plant medicines to people experiencing and recovering from state violence and repression. www.solidarityapothecary.org
The mission of the Solidarity Apothecary is to materially support revolutionary struggles and communities with plant medicines to strengthen collective autonomy, self-defence and resilience to climate change, capitalism and state violence.
The Solidarity Apothecary has been making and distributing plant medicines to those on the frontline of state violence. This includes people being arrested, on trial, imprisoned, detained or recovering from these experiences. Plant medicines are distributed via the Anarchist Black Cross, an informal network of prisoner-support and anti-repression groups. Medicines are also o ered to the people doing the support and solidarity work during these times.
The project also aims to support frontline organisers with herbal education and tools to overcome burnout and sustain their work.
