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
"Use a mask,
Resist the surveillance pandemic."
i first heard about mastodon from a local anarchist while sucking her dick (she had real bad adhd), but didn't get around to joining until the tumblr porn ban #myasstodontownhall
uspol - elections (selections)
The worse thing about a Democratic candidate being elected is that communities which usually receive some solidarity from guilt-tripping liberals in their fight against colonialism and racism suddenly disappear because now that bad-politics-man is gone, everything is better. And not just that, but literally anything that ends up being them following through with authoritarian Republican-proposed policies is erased from the public record in mass media.
Face it, that's what happened with Obama.
To paraphrase Emma Goldman: If voting changed anything that mattered, nobody would be allowed to vote at all.
We still have the surveillance state, the foreign invasions raged on, indigenous peoples were fought against tooth and nail as usual, empty police-reforms drafted by the pigs themselves were the "remedy" to police brutality. Exactly who are we practicing harm reduction for by voting? The people who already have privilege either way?
Wanna practice real harm reduction? Look on social media for local protests and plug in, get equipped, and show up. Donate to bail funds to get people out. If you have time, volunteer to help people get out of jail! Practice mutual aid and care for the people sidelined by the state and capitalism, because your vote won't make them start caring about something besides wealth and power all of a sudden (look up Food Not Bombs in your city and link up). Don't leave your PoC comrades at the protest alone late at night when the local TV cameras are gone for the night. Stay connected, take care of each other, practice forgiveness and understanding, and most importantly remember: Solidarity Forever.
In solidarity with indigenous communities, anarchist and antifascist groups are organizing autonomous fire fighting brigades to help put out wildfires in the Brazilian rain-forest while the State does little to stop their spread. https://freedomnews.org.uk/voice-from-the-frontline-brazils-antifa-firefighters/
