If you want a straightforward, practical project to help contribute to leftist, anticapitalist, and anarchist movements, then learn a new language. It is without a doubt one of the most limiting factors in our movements.
What is happened in Iran earlier this year? If I knew farsi I could maybe tell you, but instead I just know what the NYT said happened.
Are you interested in a federated alternative to Goodreads that doesn't use Amazon?

The latest n+1's opening editorial is partially about the comeback of bookstores and has some good jokes at b&n's expense
It's sad that the #Oregon legislature has to even consider passing a law requiring businesses to accept #cash. Some of us would like to hang onto what little #privacy we have left. Not to mention this is exclusionary to some lower-income and minority communities.
For a while now, I've noticed that some cashiers give me the stinkeye when I pull out the cash. Excuse me for making you do your job! Excuse me for my tiny act of resistance!
two portions to the show. First, we catch up with Mitch from Red Strings and Maroons podcast about some of what they saw at the A2 rally in Richmond on January 20th & about antifascist intervention. Then, Alexander Reid Ross talks about disinformation, tankies, conspiracy theories & media literacy
Oakland, Moms 4 Housing, eviction, purchase, +
An unexpectedly positive coda to that abhorrent Oakland eviction by the militarily-armed Alameda County Sheriff's Office recently:
"In a huge victory that may change the way Oakland (and other cities) looks at vacant housing, homeless mothers who took over an empty property in Oakland announced on Martin Luther King Day they will be purchasing the home through the Oakland Community Land Trust."
"As part of the deal, the company has also agreed to allow the city of Oakland, the land trust, or other affordable housing organizations the first right of refusal on all of their other Oakland properties. In other words, the city will be first in line to have the option to purchase when Wedgewood’s 50 properties go on the market.
It’s a big deal.
Make no mistake: It’s a reluctant, begrudging agreement on the part of Wedgewood. Moms 4 Housing, in collaboration with the Oakland Community Land Trust, repeatedly offered to buy the house during eviction proceedings. The company repeatedly refused."
me reading a poem about sexual violence, audio recording
I recorded the poem from this thread https://mastodonten.de/@AzureKingfisher/103495369611511454 and would be grateful to be heard. I'm not so happy with my accent and overly self conscious with my voice but here you are, this is me:
An American Anarchist:The Life of Voltairine de Cleyre | by Paul Avrich.
Almost felt like an anarchist prayer
Also, Artemisia Gentileschi’s Judith and Holofernes is at the SAM until the 26th and i love it
#anarchist #seattle #books #SAM #anarchy #Artemisia
May you be a Judith decapitating a Holofernes,
A Joan of Arc leading a people to victory,
A Louise Michel fighting on the barricades,
A Voltairine de Cleyre singing songs of revolt,
An Emma Goldman preaching the gospel of rebellion.
Into The War | by Italo Calvino
History sure does rhyme
This is an image that is a mashup of the two opening pages to "Into the War", a book by Italo Calvino.
The book opens with a page of very mundane descriptions of some Italian teenagers just being teenagers. And then suddenly, Mussolini has announced Italy will enter the war.
