On landlords 

A more radical approach:

Maybe everyone just gets a house. A free house that they're not allowed to speculate on or sell as an asset.

Ah you wanna move out your parents place at 18? Here's a house.

Columbus was rejected by most scholars of the time not because they thought the Earth was flat, but because he was bad at math and had vastly underestimated the distance to Asia. Had he not accidentally landed in Taíno territory, he would've starved before reaching Asia.

looking at local fash fb page
where someone calls the local DSA chapter "antifa terrorists" and having trouble holding it together :D

A university (loyola marymount) did a survey and found that people with cop family members want to defund and abolish police MORE than those without. Makes sense but amazing to see confirmed

one time i was at an airport with lush products and ofc my bag got pulled aside to be torn thru and the guy pulls out one of them and is like "hey what is this?"

me: "it's for taking baths"
him: "what's it called?"
me: "oh y'know it's got baking powder in it and it fizzes when you put it in water and it's got smells and stuff"
him: "what's it called?"
me: "uhh ... bath fizz?"

then he called the bomb squad on me anyway 🙈

Folks from Katy and Houston mobilized last weekend to defend a Drag Bingo fundraiser from a range of conservative and fascist groups. The event raised thousands for trans youth while the Proud Boys were outside getting bruised and pepper sprayed

I’m part of a thing that participates in an anti-racism conference at a school every year

We asked the organizers what their Covid/mask policy will be this year, bc their materials didn’t say. Response was “we will be defaulting to the schools Covid policy. Currently (school) has no Covid policy”.

Currently, we will not be participating this year.

The land where this torched colonial house/museum sits is very close to the sacred sites of Coldwater Spring (now appropriated by the National Park Service, a few hundred yards south) and the sacred oaks that were destroyed by the Highway 55 reroute around the year 2000. The "Minnehaha Free State" camp resisting that reroute was a 18 month occupation that helped save the spring, but faced massive police repression so MN could build a road.

Fuck these colonial landmarks. Land back!

The "first colonial house west of the Mississippi", as it's billed (now a museum in a park), was set on fire AGAIN over the weekend, the 3rd time in the past 6 weeks. Earlier, there was a communique published to Abolition Media about it. Meanwhile local libs are handwringing about it as usual.

Here's hoping the rebels responsible are keeping safe and left no trace.

Here’s another one from the same street. Apparently somebody right there took offense to this message,but not enough to actually block the entire thing out, only the last word which if you look close is def what you think it is.

Someone pre-graffitied some of the Open Streets festival in Minneapolis on Saturday - here's just a few of the tags I saw. Even better since these festivals are known for way too fucking many cops.

This image from @/stoatno1 on twitter shows a sad looking MPD recruiting table at the Open Streets festival in Minneapolis yesterday - a street sign behind them is tagged "MPD REST IN PISS" in red paint :D

I think the cops staffing it are either reserves and/or new recruits themselves, hence the non-standard uniforms

The other day I went down to the torched colonial house in Minnehaha Park in Mpls (see previous toot) to check out what it looked like now. Half the place is impressively destroyed - notably the opposite half from where this police spy cam has been set up since after the 2nd fire a couple weeks ago. There was a also a beefy guy sitting in this pickup truck next to it, apparently for security. Meanwhile in the parking lot nearby, a couple out-of-state tourist cars had been smashed up!
