Ok, lovely Masto people, I have a PDF copy of the zine you can download if you are interested. Because of the way it is put together it is 20MB - any less and it is unreadable.

Please remember that this is MY FIRST ZINE and so while I welcome constructive criticism, nit picking will make me 😭

[I am still working out the logistics for a printed version, so that will be a little while.]

K, thx, bye.

De manière tristement pas surprenante, la chercheuse #KatieBouman subit des attaques et campagnes de harcèlement, simplement pour avoir cumulé les étiquettes "femme" et "réussite scientifique" que certains aimeraient antinomiques. Je pense que son nom restera plus que les leurs.

I know that the Notre Dame is a very important landmark but the fact that billionaires have pledged over 600 million dollars in the first 24 hours to help fix it just really puts into perspective how easily rich people could help solve world issues if they cared

Anybody think the PM would be tweeting this (alongside government propaganda about being the greenest government ever) if XR weren't creating a stink in London?

(Don't worry, it isn't going unchallenged 😀 )

‘Ken Marsh, chairman of the Met Police Federation, said it was "very, very difficult" for police to deal with the activists as "we have never dealt with something like this before".’

People are asking why XR feel the need to break the law, and inconvenience people, in their bid to get the Climate Emergency message across.

The answer is that that’s what it takes to get MSM coverage. The current protests in London were barely mentioned on the BBC News website until the arrests started. Day 4 of the protests, and only now are the lead story in the Science and Environment section.

I am tired of listening to the opinions of people who have no intention of reciprocating.

XR activists have chained themselves in front of Corbyn's house. He doesn't seem to be home; I can otherwise imagine he would be serving them tea and cake!

Maybe we need to stop calling them Opium poppies, and start calling the Breadseed poppies instead.

They have a bit of a PR problem.

This despite the fact that you can't get high from hemp.

On the other hand, it is illegal to cultivate hemp in the UK without a license, and you can't get a license without having an industrial buyer lined up, so hemp growing is restricted to commercial growers.

PFAF suggests that Opium poppies grown in the UK climate won't produce much opium anyhow.

However, Opium poppies are grown here (under license) for medicinal use. This field is right by my house (photo from a few years ago).
