it's cool how radio is when electronics use space as a wire instead of more metal

@Are0h ime this is a well-respected and fairly coherent network

it's the national entity all the folks I know fighting for abortion in Alabama refer to, at least

Is there a database anywhere that lists abortion resources and how to fund them?

I've seen a lot of links floating around but I'm wondering if there is a consolidated resource somewhere.

If not, if someone puts together an excel for me, I'd be open to building one.

Doomsday clock but its labeled overt fascism ticking closer to midnight.

I am begging you to stop saying "humanity" is destroying the planet.

The destruction of the planet is a direct consequence of European colonialism and ongoing cultural, political, and economic imperialism.

White people are destroying the planet.

Heads up that “Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights” is a scam RevCom front group. The money they raises does NOT go to people who need it

Deets especially for NYC:

things one can do rather than admonishing other people who are hurting right now about their CW practices 

drink some water.
call a friend.
do some housework.
look for five things you can see, four you can touch, and all that.

mutual aid, legal, boosts+, divorce, transphobia, debt, stalking 

Hi again. I'm sorry that the last begpost was so vague. I felt like it had to be to stay safe, but I think it backfired. :/

I'm trans and neurodivergent (not to mention a bunch of other labelspam). I've been on the fediverse for several years, but I'm in hiding now because I'm being stalked by my ex-spouse. The marriage was bad and it got significantly worse after I came out. We're in the middle of a divorce and I'm several thousand dollars in debt thanks to legal fees. On top of that I'm also being sued for credit card debt. I can't get an y more loans. I need help. If you can spare anything or can boost this post, you would have my gratitude, and hopefully I'll be able to pass the help along when I'm in a better place financially. 💜

I trusted Lucy when she testified under oath that she also believed holding the football was settled sporting precedent and I am alarmed she chose to reject the stability that holding the football has provided for two generations of kickers.

asking for job advice, my goal is related to supporting protests 

im going to get into the medical field via phlebotomy, and likely EKG as well. i cant handle school and work at the same time due to my disabilities. are there any paths i can take to becoming able to function as a street medic? the two certificates im aiming for right now arent useful for street medic training, i dont think, but is it practical to get first responder training when i do not want to be an EMT for my career?

For any kind of chemical contamination, the only two substances which are acceptable to use as eyewash are water and saline.

Posting this because a lot of people still suggest milk and antacid solution, and those people are fucking up.

Feel how you feel today. Be angry, sad, furious, etc. Let you're self feel and process. Let yourself be a person and take care of yourself while you're processing the current lunacy of today.

But do not underestimate the opportunity we have right now to build community with people that are tired of this shit.

There are way more of us out there than you realize. And every insane decision white people make pushes us closer to the moment we say 'enough' collectively.

Channel that rage into a collective action that pushes us forward even as bigots galvanize to keep us stuck in the past.

Think bigger than the imaginations of hateful bpople and be dangerous.

I'm not a fatalist. Of course, I have my feelings about today, but hopelessness is not one of them. White people have been trying to take us out for a while, and they have failed and instigated their demise in the process.

We do not live in the 50s and 60s, even though old white men and their tokens are trying to legislate like it is. Reactive policy based on hate inherently acknowledges they are
terrified of the direction the world is going and will do everything in their power to stop it.

But the world has changed, and it was and is inevitable. No doubt these hateful fools will fight, but fascism and hate are the best they have, and we see the best they can do.

Keep the pressure up. Keep building community. They don't have any new ideas, so the bulk of their strategy is to attack our hope to make us feel like it's hopeless.

But it's not. Not even close.

uspol, privacy, cops, doctors, roe v. wade 


Roe v. Wade is just the target of opportunity - the current PTBs have a long list of things they want to destroy. One of the biggest is privacy for anyone they disagree with. With that in mind:

  • It's illegal to lie to cops. If in doubt, STFU. Restricting yourself to "I decline." and "Not without a lawyer." is safer than speaking freely.
  • Cops can lie to you for any reason or no reason at all, with impunity.
  • Anything you say to a medical professional is now fair game for any LEO who wants it.
  • Long term, don't expect any legal protection of your privacy except in cases where it doesn't matter. Technology can help protect privacy; start learning now if you haven't already.

gonna make a passive help post because I mean, why the hell not

I’m 36 weeks pregnant and could go any minute, trying to get our little family into our own housing before birth. My wife has good Union job prospects, we’re just running very low on time.

any assistance will go towards application fees, rent, and deposit. thanks so much y’all for getting us this far!
