Sharing a tweet that made me happy. Also Ravelry's twitter is VERY wholesome.
Bryan Menegus @BryanDisagrees: A social network for knitting just made every other website look like goddamn cowards
Ravelry @ravelry: We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. More details: https://www.ravelry.com/content/no-trump
"Here is our unwanted blood"
Queer activists covered the red cross blood donation point in Gent with fake blood after the location announced it would no longer accept transgender donors.
Me: Even though I don't agree with their tactics, I should give this Extinction Rebellion a second look. They're really active and that's kind of...
XR twitter: "Most police are reasonable people."
Me: It's probably just one naive person, I'm sure people in the movement will correct this.
... 21 hours... no correction...
Me: ok, maybe no second look. Maybe I'm just staying so so far away from this.
A tweet from Amaryah S. Armstrong @amaryah_sa.
“The success of capitalism is due to how much it has convinced people that you have to earn your existence.
I keep seeing people saying dignity is earned and I’m just like, you sound like a terrible parent, partner, person, neighbor, and friend, but also am like, somebody taught you that and treated you that way and that sounds like a shit way to be raised.”
Rotterdam is a city where over half of all inhabitants are POC and migrants, and where the police is notoriously racist.
So in the part years they had a 'diversity' campaign (while denying that they're racist of course). They now have 85 new police officers in training and proudly shared a photo. Roughly 80 of them are white.
Looks like Rotterdam POC didn't fall for their bullshit.
OffGaurdian: “I understand the need to act in Venezuela. The country has seen weeks of violent protests, thr embattled President has less than 17% approval rating and government forced have been gassing and maiming civilians in the streets.
Oh sorry, that’s not Venevuela, that’s France.”
(Kudos to the ‘violent protests’, you’re doing amazing)
A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
