The Emergency Committee for Rojava:

A Call to Defend #Rojava

an open letter:
nybooks.com/daily/2018/04/23/a

supported by
- Noam #Chomsky
- David #Graeber
- Debbie Bookchin (journalist and daughter of Murray #Bookchin)

...to just name my fav. ones from that list

sadly their call is missing agitation for #directAction that involves more then begging the authority

(great interview with Debbie #bookchin:

If you haven’t followed this story, it was WABE, Atlanta’s NPR station. Even what people think of as “liberal” US media is often working as state propaganda.
RT @bungarsargon@twitter.com This story is mortifying. The excellent @TheWayWithAnoa@twitter.com
has been smeared for being a Black woman trying to get a platform:

Just ducked out of a lunch discussion where people were talking about their strategies for unfollowing anyone that talks about politics or things that they disagree with.

I mean, you're free to do whatever you want, but I kind of feel a little disgusted at so many tech workers just burying their heads in the sand when it comes to politics. It's like you want to go out of your way to avoid anything that might make you slightly uncomfortable.

Morning folks.

Never underestimate the cumulative effect of doing good in your sphere of influence. I know we all read the news and we get overwhelmed with the enormity of the tasks that need to be completed, but it's the little things that really count.

Do what you can where you live and where you're at. That's enough. It's the effort that counts because you're not alone and it adds up.

Also super annoying (not to say downright maddening) is seeing f'n Citibank's name on all their reports. You'd think maybe that spot would be better occupied by CUNA. I brought this up at a USFWC conf. and was told by the person in charge that they accepted Citi's money because "all money is blood money" and the people who work at Citi Community Development are nice. Citi's (very recent) history or racial discrimination didn't seem to be a problem...again, WTF?

Jeff Hardin boosted

@GuerillaOntologist I know, right?! I'm sure the Citi people do decent work and their money's green. But dancing with the devil...

"I have a great belief that whenever there is chaos, it creates wonderful thinking. I consider chaos a wonderful gift." -- Septima Clark hooktube.com/watch?v=dAUCZH-r3

In the wake of a wonderful chat about I came across this remarkable interview with Highlander Folk School Founder Myles Horton (ca 1980). Gives some context on the history of social activism and organization in the American South, and is quite relevant today. hooktube.com/watch?v=qSwW0zc-Q

We just finished a great discussion of . Thanks all! @neil will post the notes on Loomio with a link here. We used .io for chat and etherpad (did not work for one person) and for conference calling. Overall we were very impressed by the ambition and thoroughness of the strategy that organizers have mapped out. Click here to to join the working group to organize an online discussion with

Starting a "meal share" with my local family. Everyone participating is preparing a large batch of something, and then we all trade portions. I'm really hoping folks like and it sticks around.

Hayley and I like to prep as much food over the weekend as possible to make eating well during the week easier. Making a bunch of one thing is a lot easier than making a smaller batch of several things.

If you're ever feeling unsure of what to do, try to visualize the future you want and think of the changes in the world between how it is now and how you want it to be.

It's silly (and obvious) but it's somehow really easy to forget.

If you're having trouble deciding which change to make first, try to think about which changes need to come first. Always look for the root changes, everything else is secondary at best.

the evil government of israel's firing on unarmed protestors is pretty much identical to the evil nixon firing on the Kent State protestors, so it is easy to see why Natalie Portman would refuse to go to israel now.
no one who was good would.
nixon, like the evil monsters in israel did not express any remorse in the days after the shooting, for the dead children and people at Kent State.
so like JFK said, about Berlin, i am a Palestinian.
