Totalism.org hackbase / CHT 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.

SCENARIO / TIME PLAN
(DONE) JAN 4-15 2020: Re-locate main project storage
Is currently in Mancha Blanca (Lanzarote) but needs to move.
Deadline is Jan 15!
Needed storage space: ~10m3 (~2 ISO pallets). All boxed up. Asking local connections for house or land storage options. Will not rent anything for money.
(DONE) JAN 15-MARCH 2020: Ferry the van to the island of Fuerteventura
This costs ~20€ + 20€ per person
Once we're in Fuerteventura, everything is possible ... nobody was ever there! ...
Expect lots of exploration, and trying to meet new people: Locals (Spanish/Canarian) & the international "surfer" crowd.
Will probably set a few van-supported camps, and organize some public events.
Will definitely go around by bikes, buying ~3 new ones.
(DONE) FEB 2020 : Find a place to keep the van while we are not here
We will need to meet somebody and ask them.
Just leaving the van somewhere is possible, but not desirable.
UPDATE: We agreed on a van-store place with new local friends.
(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 presently enviable.
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 village where we're sheltering (<10 constant inhabitants, ~30 houses, not on official cadastre).
