"This wild-born male chimpanzee named H.N. noticed that I was drawing his portrait.

I was careful not to stare at him, just glance respectfully. Every ten minutes or so he wanted me to show him how I was coming along on the sketch."

EU withheld a study that shows piracy doesn't hurt sales

engadget.com/2017-09-22-eu-sup

In 2013, the European Commission ordered a €360,000 ($430,000) study on how piracy affects sales of music, books, movies and games in the EU. However, it never ended up showing it to the public except for one cherry-picked section. That's possibly because the study concluded that there was no evidence that piracy affects copyrighted sales, and in the case of video games, might actually help them.

Likewise when you hear “turn off the lights when you leave the room, get energy efficient appliances” they’re once again moving the responsibility to the consumer rather than the oil and gas conglomerates which constantly push back against green energy solutions. Turning off your lights will not save us

@whiskeysailor they call for people to turn off their a/c but let Times Square run every light 24/7

Anti-apartheid activists + ILWU union dockworkers in Prince Rupert, Canada stopped the ZIM Volans container ship from docking there yesterday. This after the ship was unable to dock in Oakland b/c of similar actions.

So I've been working with an activist group to prevent forced evictions/demolitions in Karachi for the last 4 months.

Whenever me and my comrades show up to film the demolitions (and the attendant harassment of residents that comes with it), we get threatened with arrest.

Do folks here have recommendations for inexpensive & inconspicuous recording devices that can be used to surreptitiously record and possibly livestream such events as they're happening?

That the communist sees in you the man, the brother, is only the Sunday side of communism... If you were a "lazy-bones," he would not indeed fail to recognize the man in you, but would endeavour to cleanse him as a "lazy man" from laziness and to convert you to the faith that labor is man's "destiny and calling."

(Video)Trigger warning ⚠️ CW, ethnic cleansing in West Papua 

Foreign media still banned in West Papua. The West Papuan people need our voices! Let’s get these images circulating so the world can learn about the “secret genocide” taking place in West Papua. 1 in 3 West Papuans have been killed since the illegal Indonesian takeover in 1963.
“Trophy killing” photos. The man is Yustinus Murib, an elder. Death to fascist Indonesian military!!! The West Papuan people need help!!!

I just learned about a man named Bernard Lazare, a late–19th century French Jewish anarchist. Here's a couple of his quotes:

On Karl Marx: "A jealous authoritarian, unfaithful to his own ideas, driving the Internationale away from its goals."

On Theodor Herzl and the Zionists Action Committee: "You are bourgeois in thoughts, bourgeois in your feelings, bourgeois in your ideas, bourgeois in your conception of society."

A true mentsh!
