the entire collective - apart from justin - (who was fortunate not to have these people invade his home with threats and violence) - want arafura blocked.
how many times must this fact be repeated?
our first meeting ratified the expulsions - our second ratified the block.
All of our collective - including Justin - believe the 'arafura' collective is a stunt to continue this drama and harm us.
emails from dimc members make that clear.
the strike continues

The formal problem is that new-imc does not have this power to "rule the
blocks irrelevant". Common sense might mean that on imc-process, blocks
from either one of the two would be de facto considered invalid.
However, asking both groups to commit to not blocking the other is
also something that they can do to improve their relationship. It also
means they have to trust other, independent local IMCs to do this on
their behalf if necessary. At the moment mick from Darwin has stated
his intention to block Arafura (though we don't know if the whole
collective consensed on this), but i haven't seen an intention in the

Well, if you want to override possible bad intentions from either group,
then probably imc-process is the place. IMHO new-imc can only make
