M.F.P. (MY FRIEND’S PLACE)
was a diverse group of twenty-somethings cohabiting in a small apartment in Echo Park; a working class neighborhood east of Hollywood.
Some members of MFP are now part of a radio collective called “On Resistance” who have a weekly show on Los Angeles public radio station 90.7 KPFK.
Podcasts of their show OnResistance are available on SoundCloud.

The Buddhist principle of the oneness of self and environment (esho funi) means that life (sho) and its environment (e) are inseparable (funi). Funi means “two but not two…” This is a liberating concept as it means that there is no need to seek empowerment outside ourselves or in a particular place. Esho Funi, the Human Being, will show the validity of the principle through his actual proof, lived experience, his creative mind, social interaction and spiritual training; his goal human and environment firstname.lastname@example.org
“When I was 13, my cousin Junie was sentenced to life in prison. I remember the night he came to my home afraid of what he knew was coming, I remember the dark hall way/entrance he stood in as I was told to take my little brothers, sisters and cousins upstairs into our room. That was that last time I remember seeing my older cousin Junie. Evidence recently, has surfaced that he was wrongly convicted, like most Black Humans are”-Esho Funi. https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/911Zg3
Ryan identifies as a writer, striker, activist, and anarchist. It wasn’t always this way. Occupy was where he held his first sign, shouted his first chant, and where he found himself amidst sagging tents, jail cells, tear gas, and new friends. Unable to pay either his tuition or his rent, he withdrew from Chapman University’s political science program to practice some real politics around City Hall in Los Angeles.
