That's exactly what it must not do, The labour policy is simple renegotiate a left brexit with EU, put this to a vote, if passes do it, if not revoke of course you would not understand any of this from the mainstream media

1. create YT account
2. upload as many loooong videos as you can. Videos must feature many changes such as completely different scene and colour pallate in every frame to reduce how much video can be compressed
3. never switch on advertising or any monetisation for your channel
4. watch your videos often and get your friends to do the same.

Waste YT money and resources.

We have this in the UK btw. It's called CTIRU, has filed over 250,000 removal requests without prior authorisation:


Why should we trust the government White Paper, suggesting outsourcing legal judgments to private companies, when it can't get this stuff right itself?

Governments give the message they don't care about due process, accuracy, oversight, accountability, free speech.

On a complete separate note: is it just me or has the UK gone completely barmy re Internet policy?

Other countries have their problems but we seem to be doing particularly badly.

For real though, I don't get why anyone working in science in the 21st century would be anything other than anticapitalist. Or critical of it at the very least. It does nothing but make our lives difficult.

We're all constantly grovelling for funds. Important articles are hidden behind paywalls. We need to pay to get stuff published. And I'm so tired of hearing things like "yes we'd love to hire you, but we don't have any funding right now."

ipfs.io its been around for a while, i like the idea, but am not sure about the implementation. Not seen anything real built on it? What is the of the developers, all code has world views, that's why its so hard to push out a project like as its a weak push against a strong flow...

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.
