The very dangerous TRUMP is unravelling the peace treaty by Reagan and Gorbachev from 1987 which was partly the work of the greenham protest and the broader peace movement who made great sacrifices in the 1980s in their campaigning for peace, masses out on the streets , blockading US bases , going to prison ,giving up jobs selling homes ...etc there are films , plays and books and more being made about our campaigning for peace ...

"Various conversations about AI and inclusion have already started. However, these important conversations run the risk of being shaped by an ‘artificial intelligentsia’ that discusses inclusion without truly including the voices of the marginalized people likely to suffer most significantly in an AI ecosystem that didn’t consider their voice in its design."

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.
