happening now, climatejustice activists blocking a cruiser ship Show more
In their cominique they explain their reasons, such as:
We have enough ships and money to travel around for holiday, but not enough to safe refugees. This is unacceptable. Cruise ships consume a lot of ressources incl. fossil fuel and by that spit out toxic gases and greenhouse gases. In times of a #climatecrisis, neither this is acceptable. Workers on the ships are heavily exploited, while very few become rich.
Cruise ships are run on an exploitive system that is destroyn our enviornment.
Let's stop them! #smashcruiseshit
(ofcourse did the police came to counter their action, but at least for now, it is still blocked)

Good. Every time the US military wastes a dollar, a child's life is spared.
"America chose to pursue a trade policy that prioritized the interests of capital over the interests of American workers" - Elizabeth Warren's "Economic Patriotism" plan.
I continue to be perplexed by "proud xapitalist" Liz Warren putting out bills and plans with sickening titles yet packed with actual #socialism and class consciousness
Lol at all the libs wagging their fingers at #Chernobyl while the whole planet cooks in a stew of capitalist disinformation and denial
@datatitian I support this motion if only because we need to reclaim "the feds" as a name and this is a good stepping stone to that.
Bernie Show more
Whereas other campaigns spend $100's of thousands buying address lists, the Bernie campaign just had its army of volunteers text nearly all 1 million people that have signed up with the campaign ask them to enter their address online in exchange for a free bumper sticker. And we did that in just 1 day!
If you want a free sticker but didn't get texted, here's the link: https://act.berniesanders.com/signup/bernie-2020-sticker/
police brutality, unjust "justice" system Show more
Of thousands of reported cases of police brutality in Sweden 2014-18, only about half even went to preliminary investigation, then only 34(!) were brought to trial and finally only 13 were convicted.
Regular cases usually only need two witnesses, but for police cases 4-5 may not be enough, says director of special prosecutorial chamber (which handles e.g. cases against police).

Those of you who have followed me for years already know this but..
1. Cops lie. They do it ALL OF THE TIME. They can lie to you. It's legal.
2. Please STOP telling your children to talk to the cops. If they are stopped or arrested, THEY SHOULD NOT BE TALKING TO COPS.
@datatitian Treated as equals, with full youth liberation. Definitely abolish families though. I haven't read The Dispossessed yet. It's on my list. I think kids should definitely be able to choose who they befriend or live with.
