Minneapolis; racism 

Many Minneapolis city staff - including those in the Race & Equity division, in which 90% of employees have quit or been fired over the past year - have been organizing around their racist toxic workplace culture, in particular demanding that City Coordinator Heather Johnston (basically the highest unelected city leader) not be re-confirmed to her post.

I'm very very rarely one to give a fuck about city council shit, but would appreciate MPLS folks sharing this:

homophobia, important 

Please keep an eye out for people trying to brand monkeypox as a "gay disease", explicit or otherwise, and push back hard and early!

I've already started seeing the same kind of "the damn gays fucking everywhere" rhetoric that also popped up during the first years of the AIDS epidemic in the US. That rhetoric was directly responsible for (tens of?) thousands of deaths.

We absolutely *cannot* afford to let homophobes gain control over the public narrative around monkeypox, and let them use it to once again kill queer folks by denying them crucially important healthcare. :boosts_ok_gay:

George Floyd uprising anniversary nonsense 

My biggest lesson from the uprising, which will be on full display this coming week in the form of ticketed galas, peace vigils, hollow remembrances and other nonsense, is about the utter meaningless of words and images.

Unless it presents a direct structural threat, any words and any images can and will be used for recuperation. Words like “BLM” or “abolish the police” have very little to no power any more because of this. Don’t be fooled.

While the now countrywide general uprising sparked by starvation continues,
so do the protests for livable pensions for retirees continue today as they have at least once weekly for at least about a year all across Iran.
Here are some videos of the protests today in Ahvaz, Arak, Isfahan and Qazvin as examples, merged from the Free Trade Union of Iran.
