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...

Do gifs work on here? I came across this oldy but goody again today and wanted to share.
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.”
police, racism Show more
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)
Ok, this makes me love this corner of the fediverse.
(#ADM is a recently evicted squat in Amsterdam. The toots are all about the eviction and solidarity actions.)
Over 12,000 (many say 14.000) Belgian students 'skipped school' (read: walked out on a one day strike) for 2nd climate protest of mostly high school students.
