Greetings and salutations.
Obviously an Anarchist. I'm also an androgynous pansexual goth POC. I mostly use he/him pronouns, but I do like it when someone uses she/her (especially when I'm not wearing any makeup and in work clothes).
I work in a clinical lab, and do a little bit of research. I mostly gripe and shit post. I'm also a multimedia junky who constantly looks for novelty. I indulge in hallucinogens, various crimes, and dabble with magic and music.
Are you aware of the IWW?
They are the Industrial Workers of the World.
They are a union dedicated to helping people like you achieve proper working conditions.
For example, if your boss is being a jerk to you, then the IWW can step in to tell your boss to be cool.
The IWW is international, and can help you where ever you work in the world.
Also, the more of your coworkers that join with you, the stronger you all can be when you fight for better working conditions and better pay.
US resources to use instead of the police:
Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), MARCH
I summarized from this blog:
MARCH algorithm (preventable deaths in combat zones)
-Detect source of bleeding
-Direct pressure: hold pressure (~10min) until blood clot forms
-Devices: If necessary, use tourniquets, hemostatic gauze and pressure bandages
-Don't dilute: use concept of hypotensive resusitation to avoid thinning blood or pumping established clots
Hawaii, US Imperialism
Also Hawaii had a higher literacy rate than the US before colonization and banning of our culture and language.
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.
This afternoon, January 15 2021, an anti-fascist comrade was visited by two FBI agents at their home in Philadelphia.
The agents said they had questions about the recent events at the Capitol. The comrade refused to answer questions & immediately got in touch with legal & anti-repression support. We don't rely on the state to address fascist threats. The FBI has roots in repressing anarchist and Black liberation movements. We do not trust that they are only investigating the events at the Capitol. We challenge their attempts at repression with our collective refusal to speak to law enforcement.
If you are contacted by the FBI or other law enforcement, contact Up Against The Law or Philly Anti-Repression.
Up Against The Law: 484-758-0388
Philly Anti-Repression: 267-460-1886

LA protesters are being kettled by LAPD right now when they were protesting for Tatiana Turner's release from prison.
Heh. NRA apparently just filed for bankruptcy.

Does it directly benefit us to oppose Trump supporters fighting cops?
No, let them bolth make jackasses out of themselves. The cops literally have enough of an arsenal to be their own military. Let them dry up their resources.
But should we just do nothing?
Also no, we must defend, and distribute mutual aide to BIPOC, immigrant, and disabled communities.
