Nous vivons dans un état d’urgence permanent

C’est précisément en temps de crise que l’on évalue [...] la solidité des fondamentaux de l’Etat de droit. C’est une expérience universelle que celle de ces sociétés démocratiques qui, dos au mur, sont tentées par l’abîme.[...]

L’état d’urgence contient en germe un poison. Venir à considérer que la réduction des libertés individuelles est un mal nécessaire serait une défaite de l’État de droit.

Turns out governments can just write a big blank check and make money appear out of thin air.

Turns out most of the shit we were getting paid fuck all to do was pointless busy work all along.

Turns out the people doing the most important work are the ones getting paid the least.

Turns out they can house the homeless overnight if they have enough motivation.

Turns out they can just cancel evictions and rent hikes.

Its very interesting to see what is considered a "crisis" and what is not.

Many of you already do it but we want to ask and urge everyone on and of course on other instances to add a CW (corona or covid19) to *all* toots in a relation with the corona virus pandemic. Additionally adding the #covid19 hashtag is also a good idea to filter the toots.

The topic is important but there are a lot of people that are for example in a risk group and really don't want to hear every bad joke or every new headline. Help them and be a nice citizen of this instance.

@puffinus_puffinus @tastytea Having sat on a University Ethics Committee (British version of Institutional Review Board), there is no way this dataset can be used for academic research in its current form in the UK because there's too much personally identifiable information given without consent. With GDPR in play I suspect that will be true for most of Europe.

Seems like someone at Harvard Dataverse agrees too, as it's taken less than 6 hours to be taken down.

@vfrmedia @puffinus_puffinus

you can be pretty sure they're already doing it in europe

the french government passed a law recently allowing them to scrape all social media posts from french citizens, supposedly as a way to fight against tax fraud, but worded in such a way that they can do pretty much anything with the data

(and usually when such a law is passed in france it's to retroactively protect databases they've been building and operating illegally for years)

@qyliss I think it is needed. The Fediverse needs to respond in some way. There are emails you can message the creators with in the pdf.

The main difference between Fediverse and Facebook,
even though both names start with an F (funny synchronicity..),
is that one is self centered while the other is network oriented...

We are nobody without a community..

I love you all! Keep it real 🦄

Pandu an ancient king of India during the Mahabharata times... Nice dress.. Makes me happy to see that it was fashionable in ancient times for a man to dress like this 😀

Food Not Bombs Manila really opened my eyes to just how much can be provided by mutual aid societies.

They serve not only free food, but an entire free market, a free school and even a free barbershop, it's so cool. :foodnotbombs:

Besoin de soutien immédiat en nombre pour l’ouverture d’un OUPS (Occupation d’Utilité Publique Surprise) au 34 rue Saint-Guillaume à Saint-Brieuc. Pour un lieu de création et d’expérimentation libre au cœur de la ville, on a décidé de s’installer dans un espace vide depuis 30 ans, redynamisons la ville ! Faites tourner l'info ! Merci. Les habitants du collectif OUPS

Oh, a reminder to folks on SBC: we have a Matrix group chat (kinda like Discord) that you can join of you want to. It's most useful for if SBC goes offline for whatever reason, but can be used to chat generally as well.

Question: pour quitter la manifestation parisienne il était obligatoire d'emprunter un étroit passage aménagé par la police entre la place de la Concorde et la rue Royale et à cet emplacement un policier en uniforme filmait toutes les personnes qui sortaient. A quoi cela peut il servir ? La reconnaissance faciale est-elle utilisée par les forces de l'Ordre durant les manifestations ? Si oui, dans quel but ? Par avance, merci à ceux qui pourraient m'éclairer.
