fedizine is an anarchist introduction to federated social media. It's an actual paper zine! Being released at the 2022 Montreal Anarchist Bookfair... but coming soon to you?
We're excited to shit talk corporate social media, demystify the Fediverse, and help get anarchists off the former and onto the latter...
People reading this are already on the #fedi so you know what's up... But feel free to BOOST and help spread the word!
KKKlanadian Border Services seizing @subMedia merch as "seditious material" definitely makes an argument for punk mail
Also I'm curious if they targeted particular stuff or if it was just "oh these guys, let's toss it all in the bin" bc you know i want the extra-seditious merch
maybe there's a "officially declared seditious by the KKKlanadian government" fundraiser in here somewhere
On Friday, "July 29, 2022, about 40 people opposed to 'Cop City' disrupted work at a Brasfield & Gorrie (B&G) construction site in Atlanta, GA." (video too big to upload but available at https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553581282281418753)
"@brasfieldgorrie is the general contractor building the Atlanta Police Foundation's Public Safety Training Center, termed 'Cop City' by critics." (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553582277820502018)
"The disruption took place at B&G's work site for the Georgia State University Convocation Center, which is unrelated to 'Cop City.'" (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553582426542129153)
""Hey, Brasfield & Gorrie, know that until you drop your contract, we'll continue to come to your places of work and to your homes and try to get you to do what's right," yelled one of the protesters during the work disruption." (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553582655702061057)
"After dispersing, seven protesters were arrested by Georgia State University Police. They remained in custody overnight and at this time may still be awaiting bail." (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553583029389369344)
"In September 2021, Atlanta’s City Council approved the proposal to construct the 85-acre police training facility within Atlanta's urban forest for a hefty $90 million." (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553586788186218497)
"On May 17, law enforcement from several jurisdictions, including SWAT teams with rifles, conducted a raid on the burgeoning autonomous zone within the Atlanta Forest, arresting eight people and destroying six treehouses and other protest infrastructure. https://unicornriot.ninja/2022/police-raid-atlanta-forest-occupation/" (https://nitter.it/UR_Ninja/status/1553589389120655360)
a few more tweets on the thread available from the first link
Just got notice that they went from stage 2 of water conservation to stage 5 and a boil water notice.
raising mushrooms in a drought might be unsustainable
I'm feeling like raising mushrooms in a drought might be unsustainable. Their logs take a lot more water than plants. The mycelia has to grow a web through the entire log, which has to stay wet by watering if there's no rain. In this summer heat, that's up to twice a week and up to ten minutes!
It's #ShutTheFuckUpFriday, just like every day. Practice good crowd security if you plan to find yourself in one.
think the libs will riot now?
So Twitter has suspended my account for an older thread about mental health, in which I said that supporting people who are suicidal means recognizing that suicide is a legitimate option rather than stigmatizing it or pressuring them to pretend they're okay. It was about support with dignity and they banned me under their rule against inciting suicide. They can't tell the difference between bullying high schoolers and saying out loud that certain feelings are legitimate. More stigmatization.
more stickyz! 😁 and the formatted design for use, good with ol350wx 2.5in circle labels.
thanks @anarchistbicycleclub !
retelling this story with some words changed:
there is a book fair. it is an anarchist book fair. a place for anarchists to share books. but one day someone else turns up: a tankie. the anarchists don’t want to cause a scene so they let it go. what does one tankie matter anyway? except, the next time they run the book fair, the tankie returns. this time the tankie brings a friend. now there’s two tankies. still, the anarchists don’t want confrontation at their book fair, so they let it go. the third time the anarchists run the book fair, the tankie returns, this time with another friend, and each of those friends brings a friend too. there’s a lot of tankies been coming to these book fairs, so most of the anarchists that would come, don’t come anymore. the few anarchists who are left look around and see that now there is a book fair. it’s a tankie book fair.
