It's getting to be that time of year in so-called MN to collect tshirt colors of pro-cop street patrol nonprofit peaceniks

Get all 6 primary and secondary colors to earn your collaborator copwatch badge

Radlibs to your face will be like "yeah we need alternatives to policing", then turn around and write statements saying "we need to rebuild trust in the police department"

It's an either/or y'all ya can't have both

of the dozens of people who have been arrested recently, only a few out-of-state 20-somethings have been leaked by the police media apparatus so far. they're trying to construct an "outside agitators" narrative, as usual. but the fight to defend the only truly forested city in the country from deforestation, and prevent the construction of the largest cop training facility in the country, is one everyone has a vested interest in.

andy ngo is doxxing Stop Cop City activists in atlanta now; I guess the struggle defending the atlanta forest is becoming mainstream enough to attract broader reactionary opposition

Minneapolis; racism 

I think it's especially relevant right now even more folks (rightly!) not into legislative or bureaucratic politics, bc right now the Mayor, much of the Council, and of course MPD are foaming at the mouth decrying supposed violence against city staff and cops from encampment defenders and abolitionists. The real harm against city staff is coming from their bosses.

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:

fun fact: the state of Minnesota democratic party is actually called the DFL, or Dumb-Fuck-Losers party, a holdover from when it used to be the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party way back in the day

“Violence is never the answer” is a common refrain from people who have never been forced to fight for their lives and I, for one, am tired of society taking this refrain seriously when it comes from people privileged enough to have never been in these kinds of positions.

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:

everybody has read on protest prepping but something I seldomly see mentioned: you'll have allies at an action.

if you can carry more water than you need, someone who forgot to bring water can drink. surprlus warm clothes protect against unexpected chill winds at night, or help someone who came in shorts. a labelled IFAK can enable someone who is not you to help a 3rd person. snacks make people happy and bond together.

don't try to carry too much ofc, but it feels nice to think of others.

I might need to stop making banger toots if some of y’all don’t stop boosting them onto megadoofuses timelines

LA crosswalk collective, @/crosswalkLA on twitter, said

“The city of Los Angeles is removing all of the crosswalks we've installed in the past few months. Let it be clear: We will not be deterred or discouraged. We will continue painting crosswalks to save lives.

If the city doesn't keep us safe, we keep us safe.

They also installed a new one while the old ones were being ground out.
