Gab, fedi drama redux
Yeah, they be coming.
An Update on New Gab (Link to Gab)
“[O]ur plan is to fork existing open source software, Mastodon, which is based on the ActivityPub social networking protocol.”
very first comment:
“Seeing how Mastadon is basically SJW central, I’m sure there’s the unintended trolling perk that is going to make their heads explode when they find out. :D”
I have been spending a lot of my time supporting and helping my friend who has reached a point, after almost 3yrs of bureaucracy, where our immigration have rejected her 2yo sons visa because the cost of his disability is a burden. This is despite the fact he will die if he goes home as they do not have the treatment he needs. We have a petition as part of the campaign for ministerial intervention. Would be so grateful if you could sign and share #savekayban
These keep popping up each year in the front yard. They’re like the greatest weeds ever #florespondence

Don't get me wrong: there are plenty of bright spots. And it's a relief to even have some nuance to discuss. But it's nothing like the kind of decisive repudiation of P45 and his racist politics that I wanted to see. And he'll still get to install whoever he likes if another Supreme Court seat opens up. And we still aren't getting a carbon tax here. And so on....
fascists that might be in your area, PSA (UK)
Btw, if you see groups like Generation Identity, EDL and the like perform any action in your area (like activism, stickering, reading groups, etc.) Take a picture and drop Hope Not Hate an email. They are an anti-fascist organisation that likes to keep tabs on what these people are up to and the more data points, the better!
I gave them evidence of GI stickers in my neighbourhood a few months ago and they appreciated it!
@Wewereseeds as the young people like to say these days, ACAB!
