PDX protests (+)
So much gratitude to everyone who showed up to protest the fash yesterday in Portland. This story especially brought me joy:
"When the group crossed into Old Town, [Proud Boys rally organizer Joey Gibson] stopped to address the crowd. As he did, a woman on a 750cc Harley Davidson motorcycle pulled up to the curb and drowned Gibson out by revving her engine. Police asked her to stop. She refused and several officers yanked her from her motorcycle and cuffed her."

Vila Eloise is a #queer house project located in a village in Galiza (northwest of Iberian peninsule).
We are just setting the house ready for visitors. Staying is free (some abilities trade is appreciated whenever possible) and we plan to offer a work space for artists, meetups and workshops.
Every queer person is welcome, we are a safe space for people of any gender id or orientation (including all non binary genders, a-spec, pan people...) and sex workers. See our site for more info on our philosophy and stances.
psa: How to block fedichive (privacy breaching instance) since ActivityPub relays are awful
Domain block fedichive.tk (obv)
iptables -I INPUT -s 184.108.40.206 -j DROP
Add a command to your web server config to drop any User-Agent containing "fedichive".
every single relay
you've connected your instance to, and the relays those relays may or may not connect to.
If a relay lists fedichive.tk or a relay it's connected to lists fedichive.tk, remove it/disable it until fedichive.tk's gone from their list
Fediverse surveillance instance: Fedichive
There is a new instance¹ that tries to archive the whole Fediverse² and they plan to make a full text search available to everyone. I recommend you block their IPs.
What they are doing is illegal by the way, at least when it concerns EU citizens.
