go follow my boyfriend @Pops, he's one of the most passionate and knowledgeable anarchists I know. And he does a Praxis as well.
This is the kind of greenwashing we can get behind https://enoughisenough14.org/2020/01/30/the-hague-netherlands-shell-petrol-station-greenwashed/
Wow, I blinked and months passed. Sorry I've been gone for so long!
I'm Yvonne, joined SBC in Dec 2018. Crafty, DIY enthusiast who's Solarpunk at heart. Soft spot for destigmatizing mental health and neurodivergency.

@redoak it's the perfect, perfect way to describe right-libertarians. You have freedom to the extent that you have property
Like fucking clockwork... another 6 months, another job lost because my "customer service" wasn't good enough for them. Wish there were jobs available that aren't hell for autistic people, but I guess post-Fordism just wants me to die instead!
My ko-fi is linked below, as well as on my profile. Anything you can contribute would be really helpful for keeping up with rent while I try to find another capitalist master. If you can't give money, boosts are also a big help. You can also help by doing whatever you can to erode the shitty system we live under before it kills me
I love y'all. Thank you for always being there for me through all this bullshit. Let's keep trying to make the world better
UK pol, death, starvation, institutional murder
"MPs and campaigners have called for an independent inquiry after it emerged a disabled man with a long history of mental illness starved to death just months after welfare officials stopped his out-of-work and housing benefits.
Errol Graham, a 57-year-old grandfather, and in his younger days a keen amateur footballer, weighed just four and a half stone (28.5kg) when his emaciated body was discovered by bailiffs who had broken down his front door to evict him for non-payment of rent.
A coroner’s report into the tragedy found that Graham, who suffered from severe social anxiety and had cut himself off from family and friends, had died of starvation. When he was found, his Nottingham flat had no gas or electricity supply. There was no food in the property apart from two tins of fish that were four years out of date"

TL;DR of today's IWW furry story, with links (cw for labor politics, as one might expect)
1. About nine months ago, a left-wing fur commissions https://www.furaffinity.net/view/31295486/ featuring a drawing of a fat fur character squashing a boss, accompanied by a pro-IWW (International Workers of the World, an international labor union) message.
2. Day before yesterday, a Chicago-area affiliate of the IWW reposted the above to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/IWWChicago/posts/2883455245011302
3. The general reaction is summed up by the subhead of https://www.dailydot.com/irl/furry-art-iww/ from the Daily Dot: ‘Is someone going to tell them?’
(By the way, the article also interviews the person who commissioned the art!)
4. A Twitter account associated with _Industrial Worker_, the official publication of the IWW, quote-tweets someone replying to the Daily Dot's tweet about the article with https://twitter.com/IndustrialWrkr/status/1222360216836231168 ...
Furries are welcome as long as they're not cops or landlords
Join the one big uwunion
5. ...and then https://twitter.com/IndustrialWrkr/status/1222570388804263936 listing which IWW unions to join for fursuit makers and freelance/commission artists.
It is rather delightful, imho.
What a great day to find out that the QR generator I used to make the codes for the Bullshit Jobs flyer is actually a scam, the codes they say are free are actually on a 14-day trial after which you have to pay to keep them activated, and they've been offline for several weeks now during which they've gotten at least 20 scans
And they're already printed onto physical sheets of paper and taped up in public at this point. Not just by me but presumably others anywhere in the world. So now I'm fucking forced to hand them $60 (once I can) to keep it up for another year. For something they told me was free
The Cherokee nation is offering heirloom #seeds to tribal citizens interested in growing traditional crops.
"Last year, the Cherokee Nation gave away almost 10,000 packages of seeds to its tribal citizens. Cherokee Nation officials are committed to this program because it helps to keep the Cherokee culture and history alive.
This year’s offering of heirloom seeds includes Cherokee Colored Corn, Trail of Tears Beans, Georgia Candy Roaster Squash, a variety of gourds, Indian corn beads and Native plants such as the American Basket Flower, Jewelweed and Wild Senna"
