Andru and I hear of a death very near us and trek off to an abandoned village. Barxa* is the story of our trip, the story of a dying countryside and a call to action.
“Barxa” is published in the Spring edition** of STIR, a wonderful magazine that features articles and interviews on the international co-operative movement, the emergence of the commons and collaborative networks, and other community-orientated alternatives in technology, agriculture, food, sports, energy, education, etc.

*The x in Barxa, in Galizan, is pronounced with a sh sound.
