Raising funds to help Yogi buy a second hand phone.

by NARM Collective in Twickenham, England, United Kingdom

I am running this Crowdfunder to raise funds for my friend Yogi (Pronouns: They/Them).  

Yogi has spent a significant amount of time committed to protesting on various different campaigns including: Palestine Action, Stop HS2 and Animal Rebellion. They are vegan, muslim, queer and have the biggest heart!

They spent time remanded in prison during 2021 for taking action against Arconic, a company that manufactures the materials for Israel's fighter jets and also created the lethal cladding for Grenfell tower.  In prison, they undertook two hunger strikes, one which lasted 6 days and another which lasted for about 40 days.  

Commitment to the cause landed Yogi on electronic tag for two years, awaiting trial. This was incredibly stressful being in limbo and not knowing if or when they might be going to prison again. Recently this year, they heard the news that they would not have to go to prison again, which was a HUGE relief. They are now off tag and able to enjoy more freedoms in life.

Yogi suffers from multiple health issues including chronic pain and has been written off work because of their conditions. They are also a caregiver to two beautiful dogs and are trying their best to move on with their life, taking some well needed rest. This is why I am asking for your help to get them a decent working phone, that will last. 

Yogi is aware of the situation in the DR Congo, this is why they would prefer second hand. I have researched on which was the best model to buy for them and how long it would be supported by the company. Yogi hopes to one day get a Fairphone in the future, but for now this is the best option.

This is the most sustainable and best quality option we were able to find. We are hoping to purchase this one on BackMarket: https://www.backmarket.co.uk/en-gb/p/iphone-11-64-gb-white-unlocked/78c89984-2b2f-4a01-abed-5a9ea8205ea0#l=12&scroll=false

Yogi has made so many sacrifices for the collective, help us return the favour and support them with a decent phone, making their life that little bit easier!
