reminder that the guy #BryanLunduke that claimed mozilla is sponsoring "#antifa email" is marketing director at #purism.
He claimed that #mozilla would by this, support a domestic terrorist organisation. In fact they where supporting riseup.net a hosting collective focused on security.

When I was pointing him out on his errors and miss understanding of what antifa actually is, he claimed me doing libel. I gave him my word that he will be driven off from here, when he does not change his agenda.
Just read toot!'s announcement about blocking gab and I fully support it.
What I don't like is the massed amount soap box suzies whining and complaining that what he's doing is "censorship".
Or "If you block this, how long till you block [utterly unrelated thing]?
Fuck you and fuck nazi's. Block their method of communication, give them no safe space, no where to relax, no allies.
Let them live in perpetual fear that they will be found.
Fuck nazi apologists.
From the excellent Workers’ Solidarity Movement in Ireland:
“Today is the anniversary of the start of the 1798 rebellion in Dublin. This was the moment republicanism came to the fore, all the rebellions before were about who was the rightful king, all those after sought to put the people in charge.”
The first Pride was a riot.
Trans women of color started the fight for queer liberation fifty years ago.
Today, queer immigrants, people of color and sex workers still face police violence.
No cops at pride.
Dying @ this anecdote from Andrew Thaler on birbsite:
“Six years ago today, I walked into the techiest tech-bro bar in San Fransisco, positioned myself obnoxiously into a group of Dudes Wearing Google Glass, and loudly said "Ok Google, Call Mom."
It was magical.
How were you radicalized against pervasive technology?”
If there had been more of this and less sexual repression when I was a kid, I might still be Catholic.
"Divine Intervention: Vatican Aide Defies Police to Restore Power to Homeless Shelter"
Spring 2019 is the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik suppression of workers' strikes at Astrakhan and the Putilov Factory in Petrograd.
Thousands were killed by the Cheka (predecessor to the KGB) and Red Army under Lenin's slogan:
"When I said, 'All Power to the Workers' Councils!', what I meant was 'All power to me!'"
PLOS: Urban trees 'live fast, die young' compared to those in rural forests
"The researchers discovered accelerated rates of carbon cycling in street trees, with mean diameter growth rates nearly four times faster in the city of Bostonthan inforest stands nearby in rural Massachusetts."
More than 20 African countries have joined together to plant a giant wall of trees that will run across the continent to stop the spread of the Sahara Desert. The Great Green Wall of Africa will stretch for 7,000 kilometres, from coast to coast right across the continent.
Understand material analysis for once in your fucking life dorks
"kids are on their phones too much and don't connect with other kids" well maybe if literally every space in this country wasn't dominated after shitty chain store after shitty chain store and the environment was fucking destroyed because you couldn't transition to a post oil world and maybe if you didn't force kids to learn eight hours a day because adults work eight hours a day because capitalists want to suck all the money they can out of workers maybe I wouldn't be on my phone all the fucking time
Anticapitalist Mastodon instance. Party means fun, not political party. But we're still political.
