Pinned toot

The intro post I've never made:

Hi I'm Tulsi, a queer trans woman, currently living on land stolen from the massacred Susquehannock people.

I recently quit my job making mapping software for electric/gas/water utilities.

I'm figuring out how to support myself while doing work that supports resilient networks of autonomous communities arising from mutual aid and trust.

I have a deep faith that there is a future for humanity that's worth fighting for.

Here for conversations with comrades

coronavirus, don't worry about your phone 

If you need anarchists to provide you with a Theory of Everything in order for you not to resort to hierarchy fatalism, you're missing the point.

Hi all! This is a call to action for those who would like to help with their accessibility skills, or learn them while working on a not too complex web front-end. The quite popular Jitsi Meet web frontend has some accessibility issues which are preventing people with disabilities like me to participate in many meetings. These issues are low-hanging fruit. So if you would like to to do something good that really helps a lot of people and has big impact, here‘s the issue:

If anyone wants to help me afford a laptop. Mine has officially died. I would appreciate it. I know this is not the ideal time to ask, but I use it to study and moderate SBC. (I'll mod from my phone for now).

One of the anons who had been contributing to my book saw me dunking on landlords and got indignant because apparently they're a landlord. In typical landlord fashion they're now withholding the rights to their illustrations so that I can't publish.

I need some ~18 illustrations recreated because some "lefty" doesn't understand that having the power to throw people into the streets and profiting off that position are incompatible with socialism.

Anyone want to help out?

Thanks to this comrade who called MDC NY, we get an unsettling look at carceral logic: brutal, petty, disposal-minded, bureaucratically dead, and ultimately self-destructive to everyone involved, even to enablers. The pandemic is now, but the crisis is always.
@IWOC_NYC Just got off the phone with them and when I asked why they aren't giving out hygiene products to inmates. They said st…

Stop ICE getting PPE instead of Doctors 

[T]here were those familial and personal habits which were peculiar and seen by our non-Native neighbors as anti-social...

[Why? I]n response to diseases such as smallpox, measles, cholera, typhoid and influenza. The people learned, as a matter of survival, to keep their distance and refrain from contact.

Friends and Fellow Workers in the Upstate New York latitude:

My boss sent us home because of COVID-19 and my gym is closed so I've been using some of my time to work in the garden. If you have some dirt you can work, you can too. If you can grow your own food, you should. Let's bring back "victory gardens." Grow extra and share.

Do not wait until it's warm it to plant. You can start now.

Root vegetables, onions, peas, spinach, chard, and (very soon) lettuce can be planted now.



2) Plain even-woven cotton: not stretchy, so like sheets. BUt also sheets are useful so try and find scrap fabric.

3) You don't need one but it makes it a lot faster

4) It took me about two hours to stitch mine by hand because I am slow and it was my first one. I don't know how long one would take with a sewing machine probably 15-20 minutes or less.

5) Whenever. They're washable so I'd pass them to another crisis zone if here levels out.

If anyone is at home and can sew me reusuable masks and ship them to me that'd be super-duper-duper-duper useful.

I am finding more mutual aid people than expected, faster, so didn't even have time to finish mine up properly.

Learning how to use a Baofeng, it's pretty neat. I learned how to communicate on VHF, listen to FM, etc... Now I need to learn how to actually contact people. Anyone interested in talking #hamradio?

guess i’m gonna start writing python+gtk apps. fuck off js

May I suggest an addition of health care into the sunbeam city wiki with things like what a communal pharmacy or medical centre needs to have or how to run one of those places??

Mutual Aid, Artists 


While we're all focused on the Corona crisis the US government is quietly pushing an internet #surveillance bill that is aimed at abolishing message encryption:

We should probably pay attention to this and spread awareness even if we are not American:
