'Pirate care' stands for collective practices that are pushing back against the various aspects of neoliberal crisis of care. They help migrants survive at sea and land, provide pregnancy terminations where they are illegal, offer health support where institutions fail, liberate knowledge where access is denied. They collectivise care labour in imaginative ways. With their guests Emina Bužinkć, Iva Marčetić and Ana Vilenica the initiators of Pirate Care Valeria Graziano, Marcell Mars and Tomislav Medak discuss experiences, actions and demands emeringing from these practices in the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion focuses particularly on safety and shelter -- an update on the housing struggles in Croatia and Serbia and the dire conditions on the Balkan migration route.
