Letter from the Zapatista Women to Women in Struggle Around the World
"For reminder : currently in Russia (and the recently annexed territories, such as Crimea) there are several penal cases against anarchists under « terrorist » charges. Here are some of them : the « Network » case, the case against anarchist Vyatcheslav Lukichev, the case against anarchist Kirill Kuzminkin, the case against Crimean anarchist Evgeniy Karakashev."
"Literacy is a key skill and a key measure of a population’s education. In this entry we discuss historical trends, as well as recent developments in literacy."
Transformer les externalités en internalités : est-il possible de produire pour les besoins humains en tenant compte de toutes les externalités ?
Un article de Michel Bauwens
We are the mass who is led like #PavlovsDog
"“Many street beggars are addicts, yes,” Broomfield added. “Do addicts not deserve food?” (...) Don’t you feel… disgust? A city where luxury flats stand empty and desperate people shiver under railway arches."

Learning for #criticalThinking to act and build and spread a fairer inclusive reality
Founded on #4opens and moderated by an ethical code of conduct. Its a safe space for Campaigning and NGO groups to access their members via #openweb projects.
"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.
We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.
This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.
Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.
We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.
A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
