- ‘From climate to jobs, there is no justification for Bristol airport expansion’ https://thebristolcable.org/2019/08/from-climate-to-jobs-there-is-no-justification-for-bristol-airport-expansion/
Undoing brainwashing is a job that doesn't exist. Millions of people still bow down to their monarchs (including 'modern' politicians) in the belief that they are good to them whilst the actual people controlling our lives have long understood how to use the monarchs' influence and how to remain strategically invisible for security and manipulation. #questioneverything #criticalthinking #notconspiracytheory #openyoureyes #omn
We have a moment of lots of stinking shit hitting the fan with the environment. We have a popular movement #XR and we have imperfect but progressive choices in Corbyn and Sanders in mainstream polatics. We now have a clear path not to take in the neo-liberal #deathcult so clear and obvious choices to rally round. Time to raise the flag and take to the streets on one hand while building out real alternatives with the other #OMN
The media in uk has drowned uk citizens with Brexit news and splashed over the whole of EU politics. People can't think of much else. It's perfect to argue over, keep yourself busy prepping or doing activism one way or the other. The imminence of the planet big shifts and its consequences on human life is but a topic for when we can't speak of brexit or want a short break from it. Going nowhere FAST.
In 20th century terms #XR and its "demands" are pretty mainstream social democracy. We need to change political dialog we use both Sanders and Corbyn are left centrists from a 20th century view. And our current government is hard rightwing. Its basic simple stuff that we can change ourselves in our communities.
If you think #encryptionists culture is safe have a read of this https://latacora.micro.blog/2019/07/16/the-pgp-problem.html #PGP and the solutions are often to #geekproblem to use. An exception would be #signal but of course many encryponists will tell you not to use this for tech/social reasons. The culture is conected to the #deathcult and a invisible WAR between trust and security that will shape the next 10 years, likely not in a good way, both sad and bad.
"the only reason why macron is in power is le pen and viceversa".
They are using us because they know what we fall for because they study us from birth to death through generations.
On one side people go for the illusional harsh solutions issued from blaming (whatever) neighbours to soothe their deep frustration of lost dignity and on the other side people blame them and bath in the illusion of a peaceful world provided by a dysfunctional "techno-structure" built for market purpose only.
Meanwhile the clock is ticking.
Are #DIEM25 the only political alternative offering group with an online activity to organise themselves and campaign?
Where are the others?
Are they visible?
We have not been doing the basic stuff for the last 10 years its no wonder we are in this mess now. Talk about big ideas and big talk are just GAS with out the basic stuff to build from #OMN

- 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.
