From a letter by Thich Nhat Hanh addressed to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., June 1, 1965 (on self-immolation, "protest," "suicide") 

"The difference between burning oneself and burning oneself to death is only a difference in degree, not in nature. A man who burns himself too much must die. The importance is not to take one’s life, but to burn. What he really aims at is the expression of his will and determination, not death. In the Buddhist belief, life is not confined to a period of 60 or 80 or 100 years: life is eternal. Life is not confined to this body: life is universal. To express will by burning oneself, therefore, is not to commit an act of destruction but perform an act of construction, that is, to suffer and to die for the sake of one’s people. This is not suicide. Suicide is an act of self-destruction, having as causes the following: (1) lack of courage to live and to cope with difficulties; (2) defeat by life and loss of all hope; (3) desire for nonexistence (abhaya)."

"It would be more correct to say that we all have anti-authoritarian views, we all fight against Russian imperialism together, and we all value direct democracy." - Anti-authoritarians in #Ukraine: A little about our platoon -> enoughisenough14.org/2022/04/2 #UkraineWar #antireport

I was bored and going through the "social" section of my emails and saw someone started following this account recently. So i tried logging in and it worked. Amazing, honestly! i need better password security...

#WhiteOveralls groups armoured themselves with so much soft padding that Police truncheons and plastic bullets couldn't easily hurt them. They placed themselves between the cops and the demonstrations, aiming to prevent the cops attacking defenceless protestors. White Overalls padding would include heavy gas masks, so tear gas and pepper spray couldn't be used to break up their lines and let the cops through. The padding and masks were white, so that it came across as less threatening on TV.

"when the moment of runaway climate change comes for you, where you live, it will not come in the form of a few wandering hairy bikers. It will come with the tanks on the streets and the military or the fascists taking power.

Those generals will talk in deep green language. They will speak of degrowth, and the boundaries of planetary ecology. They will tell us we have consumed too much, and been too greedy, and now for the sake of Mother Earth, we must tighten our belts."

Hard chaser to follow up and spark some 🔥 🔥 

Hard CW: This video contains many shots of the state's executioners killing/maiming our brothers and sisters.

But it's worth it! My only criticism is the title should say "All Cops" not just "Bad Cops", though we all know they're the same fucking shit.

I've seen a few incredible videos of brave souls holding their ground against fucking class traitors in the last few weeks and it is absolutely invigorating.

If you need to cut out coffee for some reason (independence from international industrial food is valid) Then just start your day with one of these videos.

*Warning*

Side effects may include revolt, insurrectionary action, mutual aid, and liberation.

In light of earth strike and the student climate strike coming up in September I would like to encourage anyone attending to read this:

It's important for those with less experience (or none) to understand the role of agent provocateurs and deeper infiltrators. Be aware, be conscientious, be brave and confront suspicious behaviour. Help save you and your comrades some pain by staying vigilant!
