Reviewing #decentralized things to see if there are any new and interesting apps.

It doesn't appear that there's much new going on in the decentralized/p2p/offline first space which isn't horribly mired in blockchain BS. The blockchain craze in the last few years seems to have diverted a lot of effort into things which are either actively harmful or just trash constructed with a top-down mindset which has no real use case and is likely to be abandoned quickly.

I notice development on Beaker browser halted at the end of 2020. A browser which also does easy non-silo content creation would be a good idea.

This deserves its own post @mtlbookfairunofficial

The Syndicat de locataires autonomes de Montréal / Autonomous Tenants' Union is doing "Tenant Organizing 101: How to Build a Combative Union in Your Building" at 11am on the Sunday of the bookfair in the CÉDA building, room 123

It's tomorrow!!

Noise Not Borders Fest is an independent emerging music and arts festival and organization based on the city of Tiohtià:ke/ Montreal in Kanata/Canada, we firmly believe that social struggles and oppression interconnects us as people of colour and racialized minorities in a global level, art and music has historically been a medium to release anger, create conscience and direct change to specific struggles, therefore our aim as an organization, is to create a platform for local displaced, migrant, bipoc and lgbtqia2+ artists to connect with international acts as well, aiming to build a stronger community, create social conscience, as well as share the struggles that interconnect us, using punk music as a primarily medium.

With an early start!; tonight!


Kicking-off the Noise Not Borders Fest with a Punk, Heavy Metal and Post-Punk warm up party!
Dj Ultratumba
Dj Motherspace

Show thread

Rally and press conference with the kanien’kehà:ka kahnistensera (Mohawk Mothers)
Mordecai Richler Gazebo: west of Parc Avenue / near corner of Duluth St

Call to action from the kanien’kehà:ka kahnistensera:

This week is marked by the visit of Pope Francis as representative of the most genocidal corporation in history, the Catholic church. His 6-day “penitential” swan song holiday on Turtle Island will not be allowed. It is not enough to “acknowledge” the genocide, abuse and massacre of innumerable Indigenous children discovered (and yet to be discovered) in mass graves all around Turtle Island. In the Iroquoian language spoken by the original inhabitants of the St. Lawrence Valley, there is no word for saying “I am sorry”, only “I will make it right”. Rather than apologies for forcefully attempting to wipe Indigenous peoples off the globe, we want what we have never ceded: our land! We will not accept the Vatican whitewashing its barbaric history in Canada while still being the largest private landowner in the world.

If Libertarians succeed in eliminating the state they’ll have to invent it again to protect their “right” to coerce people without property.

I need every infosec person to understand that surveillance capitalism is structural, not individual, and we are not going to ethically-consume our way out of it please and thank

Call for an International Anarchist Week of Fun posted on mtl counter info

Personally, I think this is a great call. Who's down?

@VanisleJay @g________ Yup, and covered in fake blood, channeling (copying) The Misfits and Samhain. I will post a photo soon.

We at subMedia need your help. For the past 20 years, we’ve been reporting on anarchist and anticolonial struggles around the world. We absolutely could not have done this without generous contributions from our viewership over the years.
