"The story of tiny Nauru (...) is a tale of rapacious colonialism, epic mismanagement, and avarice. Australia, New Zealand and Britain had nearly exhausted the viable deposits of phosphate by 1968 when Australia granted Nauru sovereignty, leaving behind one of the world’s worst environmental disasters."
But hey, "the saver-investor initiates a "process of civilization" according to some...
"(...) the researchers say the overall conclusion of the experiment is clear: bipartisan networks can break down barriers, but any reminder that an issue is “political” can spoil the whole thing."
Me entristece tener que informarles que hoy, mientras se llevava acabo un mitin pacifico por la mala administración de los CCHs de la UNAM y por el feminicidio de esta semana, llegaron porros con palos, rocas, petardos y molotovs a agredir a los estudiantes.
i do want to add that this fire not only destroyed the Paço de São Cristóvão, but also the oldest portions of the National Archive, which date back to the arrival of the Portuguese. Documents contained there included a copy of the 1492 Treaty of Tordesillas, the first and only extant copy of Língua Brasilica, a Roman Catholic manual of prayer in Old Tupi written by St José Anchieta, apostle of Brazil, and the Brazilian crown jewels.
Details are forthcoming--
There is widespread consternation and outrage that the Museu Nacional was subject to extreme budget cuts and "reforms" during President Michel Temer's tenure in the week of the impeachment of his political rival, Dilma Rousseff.
The fire could have been prevented had fire hydrants been working on the grounds of the Museu. Unfortunately, the funding for that was cut by the Temer government.
Capitalism at work 😘
#SocialCoop members, 3 items:
- The Code of Conduct passed the vote and is now the policy of our #coop. If you have not yet, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with it here: https://git.coop/social.coop/community/docs/wikis/code-of-conduct/Code-of-Conduct-V3-Release-Candidate-1
- Following tonight's call, there is a proposal live to form a "Co-op Regeneration Team" empowered to direct operational and policy matters for the next six months. Weigh in!
Just to be clear, my main criticism of #SocialCoop at this point is that we don't have any custom anarchist/trans emojis 😂
Social.coop call logistics
If you're planning on attending the #socialcoop community working group call tonight about the ops team, and the formation of the body to take on the co-op's reboot, we've switched from the Google Hangout to a Zoom room.
The new link is embedded in the check poll in the CWG, but if you have trouble finding it, don't hesitate to DM me. Call starts at 7:30pm EDT
