a normal society: people need houses so we should build them

a commodity fetishist society: some people have to be homeless because otherwise some peoples money numbers will go down

We demand the government start taking the climate crisis seriously and implement the policies to deal with it. We need radical change and we need it now. Hear us.

All bridges have been taken by @ExtinctionR. On Westminster Bridge and we’re being led in a meditation to ground us as riot police gather. We are sending people to support who have the smallest number holding the bridge. We are united. We are the rebellion. t.co/SgKtFTlyAv

OK, want to support my composing but also want to give a friend a gift?

I do gift subscriptions now!

The support levels are the same as direct subscriptions at artsyhonker.net/support/subscr 

You can purchase a subscription there, and ask me for the gift pack in the "any other comments" box that Paypal gives you. (Do give me your snailmail address, or I won't be able to send it to you.) Then you give the recipient the card I send you, so there's something to unwrap.

I'm going to to something I wouldn't normally do, and that's link to posts on birdsite. This is just to show pics of the actions today.

First up Waterloo Bridge is now occupied

"Oh!" the child said, "I know what these are. This is joy, and this is hope."
"They weren't lost."

The goal of having people arested is to move the overton window.
More people arested provides something to write about, which means more people will be aware of the problem

The arest being on civil disobedience (rather than destruction) bring popular support and more people willing to mobilise (demo, etc). Some keep an active role and help organise.

With enough people organising, the issue becomes unavoidable for the gov
