@mango My brain read "agro-forestry" as "aggro-forestry", and now I can't get a picture out of my head of mohawk-sporting punk rockers randomly planting trees everywhere while flipping off everyone around them.
Can this be a thing?

@shatteredgears @mango Reclaim the Streets used to do stuff a bit like this in the UK. I recall they once held a protest with people on stilts with huge skirts and loud music playing. People would go in under the skirts with jackhammers and plant trees in the road.

fedi isn't a hellsite. its a decentralized federated collection of interconnected hellinstances, which together form what we refer to as the "hellaverse"

Y'all, holding self described allies/comrades accountable is not "the left eating its own." Its house cleaning so we don't end up like religious sycophants willing to elect a pedophile for 'the cause.' Shut up.

i don't care if i, or anyone really, is seen as useful because we don't exist to be used. just throwing that out there for everyone.

@Dayglochainsaw Seriously, just saw a guy over on birdsite who was a) advocating breaking the Amazon boycott and b) didn't realise that crossing picket lines is A Bad Thing.

Why are internet leftists so fucking bad at solidarity

It's Amazon Strike Day today! Please don't buy anything off of Amazon in solidarity with the worker protesting terrible working conditions.

Amazon also owns a lot of services so try to avoid using them as well: Twitch, IMdB, Whole Foods, and Audible.

This strike can be very effective, so please don't scab!
