Friday conga (26th November 2021)

THE FRIDAY CONGA (noun): a facebook post, once a week, that uses algorithms to focus attention and create fundraising momentum to top up phone credit for refugees and displaced people who are living without secure shelter, making an unsafe journey or being held in detention. (

The week of the drownings, the conga
is long. Facebook counts 2.4k comments.
It’s stormy and dark, and nobody here

feels like dancing. Instead, a drawing
together. Almost a wake, a stretch into
Saturday morning. Later, the thank yous,

from phones newly in credit. Like most
weeks, some come with pictures. Like
most weeks, the pictures show roses.
