ACTIVE, LAST UPDATED: JUNE 12 2021
CHT/Totalism.org hackbase is a post-capitalist infrastructure research project in Canary Islands (Spain). The work is to practice, develop & document transitional tactics, tech, theory, and arts. Started in 2011 as a shared house, and since 2014 organizing temporary, experimental off-grid desert camps every winter season, that are *open to all*, using common-owned 🔗stuff. Your past training or perceived skills in any of these domains does not matter. The crew coordinates by commonly established protocols. 🔗contact, subscribe to the mailing 🔗list, check 🔗history, or find the project on social media.
Due to the global plague, we are gloriously stuck on the Fuerteventura island. It's a great time to experiment with different life logics, like hackbases. Contact the base if you want to visit, are already here, or want to meet online, wherever you are.
Serving suggestion: Quit job — cancel rent — fly here

General status report
The CHT/Totalism.org project is now fully mobile (→ 🔗trucko, a VW LT2.8 van).
We have moved from Lanzarote to Fuerteventura in February 2020.
New activities are focusing on expanding the common infrastructure (→🔗stuff), developing new strategies for life+work out of the mainstream, encouraging the spread and consolidation of similar efforts, and expanding the project to other islands of the 🔗canarias.
Previous camps were all in the island of Lanzarote, Canary Islands, lastly:
* 🔗season7-A (CHT7A: 2019/10-12)
* 🔗season6-C (CHT6C: 2019/6-7)

Scenario / Time Plan
(DONE) JAN 15-MARCH 2020: Ferry the van to the island of Fuerteventura
(Costs around 20€ for the van + 20€ PP).
(TODO) Find a place to keep the van while we are off the island
We will need to meet somebody and ask them.
Just leaving the van somewhere is possible, but not desirable.
(CURRENTLY) MARCH 2020 - INDEFINITE: Shelter in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic
The Spanish government has enforced a strict lockdown in Wave #1 (March - mid May 2020).
The flights have restarted July 1st 2020, have since been uninterrupted.
Our situation here is pretty good.
We are open for new crew, and provide a temporary 10-day quarantine space.
We keep maintaining ~1-month supplies, and are embedded within the local community of the tiny (50-houses, 20-people) traditional/Fisherman village where we're sheltering
