Climate strike Sydney, Australia
Week 20.
All we are asking is for our leaders to unite behind the science. To protect our futures and those of generations to come. It is impossible to justify inaction.

Call to Stop Torturing Mentally Ill Prisoners

URGENT: Mentally Ill Prisoners in Raleigh Prison Being Tortured.

Call to Action

16 folks incarcerated at Central Prison in Raleigh, NC are going on a hunger strike starting Monday January 20, 2020 as an act of comradery to the 200 prisoners being tortured in Unit One (a mental health unit). They need your help to make the calls on Monday, January 20th. And if you have the time thereafter, call any other day you can until their demands are met and those sixteen hunger strikers can eat again.

I don't know wtf happened recently, but what I do know is you can't compare the scope of Aztec human sacrifices to the genocide that Europeans committed. It's not even close.

And, likewise, it's not like European cultures didn't also have their own sacrificial practices--often expressed in the forms of constant continental warfare and the various church inquisitions, crusades, and so forth.

And lastly, you always have to ask: what purpose does my criticism of another country/culture serve?

@Absolutely_Blakely This is less specifically about MLK and more civil rights in general but there is a folder devoted to MLK.

Several years ago a black activist on Twitter posted an archive that they had collected with information for black history month. They mentioned how they had to pay for the storage to keep the archive up and as long as they had the money for it they would continue to do so. For whatever reason I felt compelled to make a backup of all the files in case the original ever went down. Well I'm not on Twitter anymore obviously so the use case of a backup probably isn't useful anymore but I still have all the files.

There's PDFs of books, there are reports, videos and even speeches located in this archive. If anyone remembers who I'm talking about with regards to who made this collection please by all means let me know. Until then feel free to peruse through all these files. I had almost forgotten I had a copy of them.

Hey guys! Do you know of a way I can download YouTube videos for free?

I just got confirmation from my home state that I am indeed registered to vote. There's a new law that says that Americans living overseas need to re-up their registration every calendar year. If you want to vote in the primaries, do this ASAP, as it took a few weeks for my confirmation to arrive.

See votefromabroad.org/ for more information.

It's funny that whether I'm gainfully employed and making decent money or facing unemployment, either way I still think capitalism is a disastrous scam and that the essentials of life should be free

I don't understand how reactionaries claim to hate diversity when they diversify their bigotry constantly.
