2021 – week 46

Upside down = instead of announcing what we plan to do
(& most often find out we do not need to do), we relate what we really did

Building communities of trust is fundamental
to healing our collective wound.
At Plukrijp, we offer spaces of transparency and solidarity.
The community allows people to encounter each other
in truth and so develop trust.
We do the garden for YOU
Plukrijp functions on your frequent visits & harvests. Take along for friends & neighbours, this way we recreate real networks between us all, breaking down the illusory restrictions that now still separate many of us from our fellow man = UBUNTU.
The updated list of vegetables & fruit that can be harvested this week is available on our website under the heading “Current Harvest” :

Interesting Movies & Documentaries

When the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence canonised Derek Jarman

Born on the streets of San Francisco in the late 1970s, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) is a gay rights group known for their subversive use of religious imagery – and, in particular, donning Catholic nun attire to upend gender norms, protest oppression and satirise moral hypocrisy. The short documentary Saintmaking profiles the London ‘order’ of the SPI, a radical activist organisation whose members, by the time of Margaret Thatcher’s Conservative government and the HIV/AIDS crisis, were ‘really, really, really sick of being nice to people’. Marco Alessi’s film combines new documentary and dramatised footage with archival material to show the London SPI performing a canonisation ceremony in 1991 for the filmmaker and gay rights activist Derek Jarman, who died of AIDS-related illness in 1994. While ostensibly tongue-in-cheek, the ritual was also a powerful act of protest for the SPI members, who made a point of venerating and touching an HIV-positive gay man at a moment when greater society seemed to be ignoring and even chastising their community as it suffered.

L’an 01 (1973)

Emblematic of the libertarian protest of the 1970s, L’An 01 tackles themes as varied as ecology, the negation of authority, free love, community life, the rejection of private property and work.

The film narrates a Utopian, consensual and festive abandonment of the market economy and productivism. The population decides on a certain number of resolutions, the first of which is “We stop everything” and the second “After a total stoppage, only those services and productions will be revived – with reluctance – the lack of which will prove to be intolerable. . Probably: water to drink, electricity to read in the evening, the radio to say “It’s not the end of the world, it’s year 01, and now a page of Celestial Mechanics” ”.


The entry into force of these resolutions corresponds to the first day of a new era, Year 01.

Let The Sun Rise

There will be days when you think that everything is going the way you had planned. And then there are days when you feel like you can’t do one single thing right. On the days when you feel like the universe is throwing a tantrum, embrace it. Having a bad day is OK. It’s called life and it happens every day, all around the world, to people with the best intentions.


Acknowledging that a problem exists is the only real way to move on. Facing up to the problem is part of the healing process that is necessary to help us get back to brighter times.


No matter how dark it gets, the sun will rise, and we will try again.

What will you do with your new day?

You Are Immune Against Every Disease

You are not a person, you are a planet, made of roughly 40 trillion cells. There is so much of you, that if your cells were human-sized, you would be as big as 20 Mount Everests. For your creepy-crawly inhabitants, this makes your body an ecosystem, rich in resources and warmth and space. A perfect place to move into and have a family. While some of these guests are welcome, most are not. Your immune system is the guardian of this planet, the force tasked with protecting yourself against the constant danger of invasion.

Ilana Rachel Daniel came with an emotional outcry for international help from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. At record speed, the government is vaccinating the entire population – including pregnant women and children – against the coronavirus. “Civil rights are put aside and people are not allowed participation in multiple places in society unless they’ve been vaccinated or in some places of work, after repeated PCR testing every 2-3 days,” told Ilana to Flavio Pasquino in the BLCKBX studio via a live stream connection, who tracked down Ilana after an – even – more emotional audio clip on Telegram. Ilana talks about the Green Pass, the Freedom Bracelet, the mRNA vaccine and human rights violations. “Reminiscent of Fascism,” said Ilana Rachel who emigrated from the US to Jerusalem some 25 years ago.Ilana Rachel is active in Jerusalem as a health advisor, activist and information officer for a new political human rights party (Rappeh) that is heavily opposed by the regime. Censored ruthlessly in both mainstream and social media and with members of the party thwarted in their daily lives.

With 7.4 billion COVID shots deployed in arms,
Bill Gates declares that
‘we need a new way of doing the vaccines’

Against stupidity we have no defense. Neither protests nor force can touch it. Reasoning is of no use. Facts that contradict personal prejudices can simply be disbelieved — indeed, the fool can counter by criticizing them, and if they are undeniable, they can just be pushed aside as trivial exceptions. So the fool, as distinct from the scoundrel, is completely self-satisfied. In fact, they can easily become dangerous, as it does not take much to make them aggressive. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Inspiring Book

A gorgeously illustrated deep dive into the immune system that will forever change how you think about your body, from the creator of the popular science YouTube channel Kurzgesagt—In a Nutshell

You wake up and feel a tickle in your throat. Your head hurts. You’re mildly annoyed as you get the kids ready for school and dress for work yourself. Meanwhile, an epic war is being fought, just below your skin. Millions are fighting and dying for you to be able to complain as you head out the door.


So what, exactly, is your immune system?


Second only to the human brain in its complexity, it is one of the oldest and most critical facets of life on Earth. Without it, you would die within days. In Immune, Philipp Dettmer, the brains behind the most popular science channel on YouTube, takes readers on a journey through the fortress of the human body and its defenses. There is a constant battle of staggering scale raging within us, full of stories of invasion, strategy, defeat, and noble self-sacrifice. In fact, in the time you’ve been reading this, your immune system has probably identified and eradicated a cancer cell that started to grow in your body.


Each chapter delves into an element of the immune system, including defenses like antibodies and inflammation as well as threats like bacteria, allergies, and cancer, as Dettmer reveals why boosting your immune system is actually nonsense, how parasites sneak their way past your body’s defenses, how viruses work, and what goes on in your wounds when you cut yourself.


It is undeniable that the enlightened Greeks and the old Oriental sages

had achieved a higher level in this all-important field

than what is alive in our schools and universities.”

A calm and modest life brings more happiness

than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”

Inspiring Texts

Christopher Wallis – Near Enemy #2:

Everything happens for the best

Last week we addressed “Everything happens for a reason”. Sometimes that phrase is used to mean “You’ll see, some good will come of this (painful or challenging event)” which is just a softer form of “Everything happens for the best”. In the 21st century, such a proposition seems manifestly absurd (um, Syria?), so why am I calling this a Near Enemy, which by definition is a teaching that is close to the truth?

My Life Of Living Invisibly

World War 3

written by Frank

There is no need to use violence to get exclusive power over a country/state or continent. The existing state structure is available and can be put into use immediately for the execution of any anti-human program.

The speed and depth of this occurring and the absence of serious resistance within the government show that anti-humanism is not a breach of political ideology and that personal freedom has been a lie to keep children calm. Plutocracy hiding under democracy just continues “business as usual” of Robber Baron capitalism, even in the absence of any profit or capital (money=dead).


The systems of schooling, local government, media, justice, army and police are already deeply imbued with elitism, racism, sexism, anthropo-centrism, species-ism, reductionist materialism and contempt for the ability of normal people/citizens to live their lives based upon their own observations. These critters are clearly not to be trusted and must be controlled from cradle to grave in order to bring a maximum of profit to their owners, the ever-continuing elites.


Rigid application of “expert” science and “authoritarian” rules have overshadowed the scientific, cultural and moral developments of the last +100 years. Can a civilization that refuses to apply its scientific discoveries in physics, biology, sociology, psychology, … be expected to survive long ? What freedom or progress can we expect when we entrust data-management to people and institutions who are far from any control by the people, except from more efficient exploitation from above ?


The absurd amounts of money amassed by a very small number allows them to “buy” or suppress any non-conform initiatives, turning whole sections of society into mindless factories for (mis)guiding humans. As Rockefeller said: “I can hire half of humanity to enslave the other half”. Most of human culture of the last few 1000s of years can be erased by collective fear, spread by media and governments in unison.


We in the West still remember the 1933-1945 disaster as it was followed by perpetual war somewhere in the world and the genocide of non-white populations. Quo vadis homo ?

Poetry of Union


by Jane Hirshfield

There are names for what binds us:

strong forces, weak forces.

Look around, you can see them:

the skin that forms in a half-empty cup,

nails rusting into the places they join,

joints dovetailed on their own weight.

The way things stay so solidly

wherever they’ve been set down —

and gravity, scientists say, is weak.


And see how the flesh grows back

across a wound, with a great vehemence,

more strong

than the simple, untested surface before.

There’s a name for it on horses,

when it comes back darker and raised: proud flesh,


as all flesh,

is proud of its wounds, wears them

as honors given out after battle,

small triumphs pinned to the chest —


And when two people have loved each other

see how it is like a

scar between their bodies,

stronger, darker, and proud;

how the black cord makes of them a single fabric

that nothing can tear or mend.

Matisyahu – One Day

Matisyahu is a Jewish reggae singer. He asked 3,000 Muslims and Jews (whom no one had ever met before) to gather in Haifa and learn the song “One Day” with him in less than an hour. Not only that, they also learned to sing and harmonize the song in three different languages. The resulting concert brings the spirit of the new era into the world. A spirit of less must and more meeting, of less division and more healing, of less fear together and more singing together.
