"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

- Noam Chomsky

"Freedom in China is not simple. To empower those that seek it, you need many tools, from a global toolbox... We need the diverse, deeply researched, audited, & open-source brain trust that OTF has been nurturing and building for this last decade to win."

"In direct opposition to banks, corporations and entrepreneurs who appropriated the words ‘hack/hackathon’, the film aims to fill these expressions with the subversive and anarchist tradition they originally contained."

The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone née "Free Capitol" is a 6 block section around the East Precinct in Seattle, WA. Abandoned by police and left to burn, this area was instead siezed by anarchists, BLM supporters and other protestors who have since transformed it into a unverisal community based on mutual aid. Fundamentally, CHAZ is an occupation of Capitol Hill, not an official declaration of independence.

Voting isn't "radical action"

Voting isn't going to get us out of the quagmire we find ourselves in.

The government and police refuse to be held accountable to the people.

Don't fool yourself into thinking that votes have made things the way they are.

A massive system of exploitation and abuse did that. And it's not going to go away because some lawyer in a suit with a petition list asked nicely.

Now is the time to demand what is rightfully ours. The respect of our humanity.

Asking nicely hadn't worked. Voting hasn't worked. From where we are, the next step isn't to maybe try those things again because they might work this time.

Here's a pepper spray relief solution you can make at home!

I've personally witnessed the efficacy of this solution against OC (pepper) spray. The person sprayed their arm purposely with it, let it sit, and then treated the affected area with solution. Relief was almost immediate. It's made from Liquid Sunflower Lecithin, Tearless baby shampoo, water, and magnesium hydroxide. None of these are controlled or overly difficult to obtain, and it is safe for use on pepper sprayed eyes. This solution should remain stable for a few days to a few weeks.

Here's a link where more information, including an in-depth development paper, can be found:

The lack of certain security features means we have to trust humans. Specific humans. Maybe that isn't all bad.

Holy shit you guys! The #EU has adopted a standard to measure how repairable something is!

This means the path is now clear to make actual laws requiring companies to make their products repairable.

#EN45554 #Repair #RightToRepair

So I had planned to make my Spanish blog keeping the English one, but I have now changed my mind. One of the reasons is the differences in learning curve, ease of use, and degree of coolness, not sure in what order.
