Recently, I've found myself increasingly distanced from the news. There are plenty of reasons for this, but I have little conscionable justification for being so out of touch with what is happening.
Since Twitter used to be my news outlet, and the fediverse has a pretty strong culture of not blasting news constantly, I went in search of an aggregate that I can check occasionally to stay on top of things. One I found is: http://www.newsyoumayhavemissed.com
The people running the site probably fall around liberal/borderline "socialist," which is meh. BUT, they frequently give information on how to follow-up on what you're reading and how to start taking action. Imo, this is invaluable. It's just first steps, but those actions can lead a person a long way toward even more radical praxis.
@GwenfarsGarden@bedap my partner is fond of whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com, which is similar. Again, I have yet to find a UK/European equivalent. Or even a global one, though that would probably make it harder to offer direct action advice.
