Organise Magazine put out a piece on Gab and Spinster
"The anarchist critique of seizing state power is often caricatured as being based on an abstract moral opposition to the state that ignores the harsh realities we are currently facing. Upon carefully reading historical anarchist authors, however, one discovers that the real reason why they argued that revolutionaries should not seize existing state power was because it was impractical for achieving their goals."

racism in AI
Unsurprisingly, AI has a racial bias. Facial recognition apps label and categorize people. Black people are likely to be identified as “black person” or even worse, racial slurs. On the other hand, white people are more likely to be identified as professions, careers and talents. For example, “singer,” “doctor,” or “researcher.” Transparency is necessary to stop this, according to some of the whistleblowers. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2019/09/21/racist-ai-can-stopped-tech-bosses-share-secrets-warns-viral/
justseeds.org has lots of cool free graphics for the #climatestrike for all your protesting and sharing needs
I made a sigil for the #climatestrike. What do you think? I incorporated sowilo, a rune of strength, success and healing, as well as tiwaz, a rune of protection, victory and healing (again).

She actually turned down a medal that the mayor of paris wanted to give her saying “We do not need medals. We do not need authorities deciding about who is a 'hero' and who is 'illegal'.

You want to give me a medal for actions that you fight in your own ramparts”

@moonwater Ppl should also learn that larger photocopier/printers have huge hard drives that save the jobs on them.
Disposing of old equipment is therefore 'interesting', if not done correctly.
So I'm going to stop using the #SolarpunkResource tag. I don't know if it just wasn't snappy enough, but it never caught on like I hoped it would, as a hub for #practical knowledge and #DIY instructions
Instead, I'm going to try and introduce a new one: #StealThisTag . Again, I encourage anyone to post practical resources with this hashtag! Let's help each other out!
(P.S. If you're scrolling through the tag right now, this is your cue to switch to #SolarpunkResource for my older posts in this vein)
