Looking to connect with more filmmakers and video geeks throughout the fediverse. I make anarchist films, political docs, music videos, riot porn etc. I've been editing on Premiere and FCP since the 90's, trying out Davinci Resolve cause of potential paid work, but what I really want to do is to build a linux box and go full FLOSS - or as much as possible. Hi!

Hey folks, just FYI - Kolektiva is growing by leaps and bounds - YAY! But with that comes growing pains. Just bare with us as we adjust to the new volume of peeps in here. In the meantime, can I suggest that if there's posts from someone that you really don't like seeing, you can MUTE them or even BLOCK them. If they violate the code of conduct, by all means REPORT them. Just click on their profile and then the three dots to the right of their profile pic. Thanks! https://kolektiva.social/about/more
I made a quick and dirty guide on how to use #mastodon
I show you how to set up an account, follow accounts, and migrate accounts.
We should all be paying attention to what the state is currently setting up in relation to going after the far right.
The tactics they are using all derive from the tactics sets that are employed to target insurgent groups, like Al Qaeda and ISIS.
These tactics rely on 4 main pillars, all of which are present in this context.
"I have a dream, that one day, a brown person will be in charge of dropping bombs on the other brown people"
If you want to learn more about the Oklahoma city bombing and the subsequent anti-terror bill read this article by Gore Vidal published just days before 911

When white supremacists bombed a federal building in Oklahoma in the 90s, Bill Clinton (a democrat) and the Congress sailed through the most sweeping assault on civil liberties made into law at the time. This was the anti-terror bill which transformed into the Patriot Act in 2001 after the 911 attacks. Once again white supremacists are the impetus for an anti terror law that's made to come after us #anarchists. #FuckBiden
While I'm at it, there's some memes going around saying that Trump didn't start any wars. Perhaps he never issued "official" declarations of war, but the arms deals that supply weapons to war makers and dictators never stopped under the Orange one. Below are a few. And no I'm not saying the Dems are better.

Fascinating and terrifying podcast on Clearview AI - a facial recognition company that scrapes the internet for photos and was started by a proto-fascist
Anyone try Session? They claim to be open source, decentralized, no phone number needed, and that all traffic is routed through TOR but alas not on F-Droid - well at least I could not find it. https://getsession.org/
Macklemore totally on-point, raps about Trump getting the fuck out but not giving Biden (or liberals) any slack. Made my day
PS- This ain't no freestyle but whatever
Trump's gone but our work as anarchists and antifascists is far from over. Don't let your guard down comrades, don't slack on your security culture and don't stop building networks of solidarity. That's what got us through these last four years and how we kept the fash at bay. Now repeat after me and get comfortable yelling... Fuck Biden!
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who's police have worked directly with far-Right organizers and groups that were involved in storming the capitol on J6, continues to call for more police powers to go after and surveil left-wing protests. https://www.opb.org/article/2021/01/12/portland-mayor-moving-ahead-with-push-for-tougher-penalties-for-protesters-believes-district-attorney-is-in-broad-agreement/
