One of the first kitchens at the blockade just across the bridge and beside the walbran creek. It had to be moved as the creek rose in some heavy summer rain and nearly washed it all away. The organisational structure of the direct action camp was in-powering it was very 'do-it-youself' or ' do-ito-ourselves'. To quote anarchist author Colin Ward " They organise in loosely associated groups which are voluntary, functional, temporary and small. They depend, not on membership cards, votes, a special leadership and a herd of inactive follwers but on small, functional groups which ebb and flow and regroup, according to the task in hand.They are networks, not pyramids".
