s'il y a quelqu'un qui veut se charger avec le rôle de gérer un tel compte, j'suis très down de partager le mot de passe. Il serait simplement trop pour moi et/ou autres anglos de gérer les deux à la même fois!
🔁 des boosts seraient appréciés 🙂
If it isn't already being shared on Mastodon, here is the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair poster this year!
On day 67 of his hunger strike, a Greek court has once again rejected Giannis Michailidis' appeal for release from his indefinite limbo of preventative detention. If Michailidis' dies, you can be sure that his death will not go unanswered. Anarchists in Greece are calling for international comrades to target Greek embassies and Greek capital. Solidarity is urgently needed.
You got a spreadsheet of 100 conference talk names and presenters and need to generate a banner graphic for each. What to do? Use Inkscape!

A good video from AJ+ about how the media are covering the cops, how they don't fact check cops enough and how the cops have enough staff and power to shape the narrative directly in the news room of the majority of the media outlets !

It's not an easy time for anybody, but if you have the chance to be able to donate I encourage you to do so. It'd be awesome to see a 20 years old anarchist project that has inspire and radicalize so many people be able to continue and renew itself.

I've sent a bunch of active/maintained instance admins a survey about an hour ago..
Because the original introduction email was directed only at educated Mastodon administrators, It's no surprise to see that group of people are the being concerned about phishing. Seeing what you'd hope to see after years of training ourselves.
The best part is I've got a ton of detailed responses already. Great to see people taking it seriously, and I'm glad to see everybody who has chosen to respond has filled in every question.
As I've sent it to a random subset of admins, so if you WANT to participate DM me.
