Right now a group of people are occupying the Scottish government buildings and holding their own Citizens Assembly.
They are doing this because to avert biosphere collapse we need to be making collective decisions. Us. Citizens. Not stakeholders, hedge funders nor nepotistic elites.
They're doing it on Burns day, the birthday of the Scottish national poet, a nature lover ;p

…I studied business and finance at college.
After the financial crisis I spent **a lot** of time reading to understand what had happened and why
I think that the current global financial/economic system is clearly unsustainable. Things will change
I decided to focus on people coming together to create & managing the things they need
I'm pretty sure this looks much more sustainable model than focusing on heavy competition
RT @email@example.com: Great speech from @MhairiBlack@twitter.com "This entire farce is emblematic of Britain's broken democracy, a referendum held to appease an Etonian boy's club that was won on the back of financial corruption of elites." 👏👏👏👏👏
public authorities "can secretly compel tech companies and individual technologists, including network administrators, sysadmins, and open source developers – to re-engineer software and hardware under their control, so that it can be used to spy on their users. Engineers can be penalized for refusing to comply with fines and prison"... sounds like a nightmare but it is reality in the #UK and #Australia https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/new-fight-online-privacy-and-security-australia-falls-what-happens-next #eff #spy #privacy #security
Gail Bradbrook, "Rising Up! How Things Change: The Duty to Disobey"
Paraphrasing: researching causes of our climate crisis, she concluded it's not that there aren't solutions (economic, technical), just they're not being tried.
The real problem is upstream, in our social-political system. Denial, complacency, and/or active resistance has prevented effective changes (here & elsewhere).
So the question is how to induce change in the system. She has some proposals!
Crap. Pete Shelley died :(

Totally oversubscribed: 100s, standing room only downstairs in the St Augustine Church, and 50+ outside who couldn't get in.
But last-minute. Two organisers currently, need ideas, more people, funds.
Matt Slater responds to the rise of the #PlatformCooperativism movement by issuing a call for #ProtocolCooperativism:
What's the difference between a pelican? One leg is both the same.
social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
