also, um, I wrote this text? feel free to read, haha; there's a button that allows you to print the text out, too (though it's not QUITE as nice a layout as it could be, it's machine-done). theanarchistlibrary.org/librar

the text is about the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair (like, as a case study), national ideation, "language dynamics", and some of the nitty-gritty details of anarchist organizing.

the main publicity account for the text is @pivottospanish, feel free to boost from there? lol

Hey! I live downtown, I'm (kind of) a punk, I am enthusiastic about helping people out with open-source software (and have some history doing that) even though I'm sort of a perpetual amateur (I can't code), and I want more IRL friends and/or reasons to leave the house.

I like , I support using the and tags, I'm a snob about , and I write shit sometimes. Uh, befriend me? lol

Thread: We were researching prison breaks of radicals in Uruguay for the people's history map we are building, and we came across some great info with help from several people on Twitter, which we thought we would share with you.
So, in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1931, a group of…

saw this car commercial the other day where the punchline was "I'm watching you, daughter's boyfriend." Can't believe we're still doing this shit.

In Russia, Ukraine, and the US, rulers who won't die in the trenches are preparing to throw away people's lives just to gain leverage in geopolitical competitions.

We should fight those who would make us die on their behalf, not each other.

"In response to the machinations of governments, we must identify and resist every effort to turn us against each other. We should build solidarity across national, ethnic, and religious lines while doing everything we can to topple authoritarian governments from Washington, DC to Moscow. Our hope is that revolutionary movements will break out on both sides of every border.

"Escalations in state violence are calculated to make this impossible—to substitute war for revolution. But in a world headed towards ever more diffuse wars, goaded on by nationalist strongmen, our best chance of survival is to build ties between combative social movements. Let us fight those who would make us die on their behalf, not each other."

All the cool instances should share their custom emojis

A writer:
“I need to be carefully inventive with the names of this family of characters.”

Reality:
“Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte had a son named Napoléon François-Joseph Charles Bonaparte and his brother, Louis Napoléon Bonaparte, had three sons: Napoléon Charles Bonaparte, Napoléon Louis Bonaparte, and Charles Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte.”

I have been surprise-gifted a board game treating the Finnish Civil War

Have salivated over this game before but it was 100% too niche to actually try to get, haha. But... now it's here!!!

I've been trying to write a hype post, because there are only 9 DAYS left until February and I am trying to be the Fun-A-Day hypeman. The truth is, I am not feeling very hyped today, and I can't really fake it. Winter is kicking my ass and reducing me to a sad unmotivated husk. Maybe you are in the same boat, or maybe it's less drastic, but anyways thats exactly why we need to remind us that we aren't alone in these sad slushy times and we can make and do and stick to things

Le TraXide résume bien ce que je pense des mesures à Legault :

"Depuis l'annonce de Legault que le couvre-feu est levé, beaucoup de gens nous écrivent pour nous demander pourquoi nous ne recommençons pas les spectacles à Traxide. Soyons clairs : ça n'a jamais été une question sur le couvre-feu. On en a rien à foutre du couvre-feu merdique de Legault. C'est une question de bon sens et de jugement."

Im being grumpy, rant 

How many people raised that money? What if they were actually out here doing shit instead of going to their jobs so that they can have money and then they "donate to the cause"?

I say this as a job haver but seriously I love finding out that "the community" always has money in their pockets to throw at us and yet its the same like 5-10 people(generous) doing shit on a day to day.

If yall gave a shit you would be fucking shit up instead of living your comfortable life.

I would much rather someone show up to do stuff and be like "im broke too" than give $10 and be completely absent.

I dont want faceless money, that genuinely means nothing to me. All that shows is that people only care so long as they can absolve their guilt for being part of it all. Come out and have a conversation with us or get lost.

MONEY ISNT SOLIDARITY

Briefly, prisons+police are things that proletarianize. Communism is the self-abolition of the proletariat thus communist measures are things that attack proletarianization. Thus abolitionist assaults on policing+incarceration are ultimately communist measures.
