LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

This America day.

Help MMIW

Find your local rez and ask what supplies they need.

Browse Etsy for indigenous crafters and buy from them. Do this for all jewelry and shit from now on. They make great pieces.

Push for Duolingo to add more indigenous languages to preserve dying languages.

Use your white privilege to raise a fuss that the tribes are still treated like shit and expected to be grateful.

An organizer with Southerners on New Ground is raising money to buy back some of their ancestral land in North Carolina -- time sensitive fundraiser!

"There is a house, a tired and seen many-a-thing house that sits on the land my grandfather planted those freedom seeds on. It was removed from my family's possession 48 years ago, and today - it is for sale.

It is no small thing to be called to a place. It is a larger thing still to let myself hope that there is a possibility of return. As a Black Queer southern organizer, fighting for the freedom of my people is my birthright. I am seeking a reclamation of what it means to be free and am reaching out to you for support in realizing it. "

Organizing, Helping Prisoners 

So I had a thought.

Straight up this covid shit will get bad again and the majority of cases in this state happened to prisoners.

I want to make general care packages to distribute to inmates before the fall/winter flu season (when covid cases are expected to jump back up)...

What would I even do? What would I put in the care packages that won't get confiscated?

Feel free to reply, DM, or give me any suggestions at all please and thank you β™‘

so tired of anarchy's only vibe being punk.

instead of white boys drawing graffiti on brick walls, give me black lesbians harvesting the vertical farm on the side of their collectively governed skyscraper

instead of white boys wearing black and flipping off cops, show me an open air market that doesn't need police because everyone can take what they need

vandalizing walls and flipping off cops are valid forms of resistance, but what we're fighting for is beautiful too

So the healthcare in my area is kind of shit. The doctor poked my stomach, asked me TWO (2) questions and said I have an ulcer... except I have all the symptoms of Celiac disease and she just said, "You're probably stressed, it's an ulcer" ... the pain isn't even in the right place for it to be an ulcer. πŸ€¦πŸΏβ€β™€οΈ

On top of that I am questioning my faith and wanting to go back to Paganism.

2020 ain't my year guys lol

Maybe I’ve not been saying it loudly or frequently enough for the last however-many years…

Privacy is not a luxury.

Same with accessibility. Neither are luxuries, they’re life-sustaining rights. And you’re unusually privileged if you’ve not had to care about either.

Hey everybody, if at all possible you should be CPR certified and have some basic first aid training, ESPECIALLY if you are going to protests.
