"An eyewitness said on social media that the clash erupted after a passenger made a racist remark to an Asian man."

and another one on the tube. looks like my self defense skills can be tested soon. Thank you mr referendum, we back in the 80's.

in a way it feels good that capitalists are going to be defeated by nature :P

came to the uk 8 years ago and still witnessing this happening whilst working my way up from the streets and working very close to vunerable groups of people in London. Had to conclude that the people in gov deliberately intend to make room for wealthier groups of people by way of mental and physical harassement until exhaustion and death by suicide.

"According to several sources, the Italian leader, who was attending his first summit, was warned about his behaviour by EU colleagues and told to follow the club rules."

One more of my cartoon for @femLENSphoto (on twitta) because tonight is the night of the fundraising party in Gdynia. and here s a lil video too

In video-related news, if anyone's interested in helping to make an ethical decentralised alternative to YouTube, there's a crowdfunding going on to further develop PeerTube:

PeerTube is still in beta testing so there isn't a huge amount of content yet, but it works and anyone can set up their own instance if they want.

If a video gets too popular for one instance to cope with, the system shares the load with other instances.

Have you met yet?
He's and still also on youtube and he's wants to tell you a few things about the decision makers behind these machines we can't live without anymore!

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.
