And I say this as someone who has been "nesting" as hard as anyone, trying to make this house bearable for the long winter ahead. I desperately want all this to end, but I don't believe it's going to "be the same." I worry it's going to be worse, if we don't shift it.

Buying a bunch of shit to keep us entertained during lockdown isn't fixing us. It's not helping. So what can we do instead?

I don't want things to "go back to normal." "Normal" is rapacious, exponential "growth" aka destruction. It was never sustainable.

Look at all these huge corporations, these big box stores, that came in and squeezed everything else out. Now they're going bankrupt and running away, cue the tumbleweeds. Lets celebrate their absence and build community where we live. Nothing needs to be the same.

(especially on the prairies where mall culture is also about surviving long winters) If all our favourite restaurants close down, what could we be doing in their place? If we don't think about all of this, what is going to come in and fill the spaces?

Instead of despair, what if we plan? What kind of world do we want to live in when the dust settles? Why should we go back to the status quo? What can our downtown cores look like if not full of office buildings. What social spaces might we have in the absence of malls.

Everyone is bemoaning the shuttering of whole industries, but what we really need to be doing is envisioning a better world after/with COVID. The entire global economy is changing in one year. Yes, we're all at home depressed, but nothing is going to be the same after this.

Masuma spoke up in solidarity with Indigenous peoples and white fragility (which must never be named!) ensured she was punished.

This comes up on my FB every year too, because I posted in solidarity when Masuma was threatened and disciplined. Three years, and can't even say "we messed up, we are sorry." Disgusting. Her words remain true.

We don't want to cancel Halloween in the neighbourhood, we're packing candy into paper bags and delivering them via a candy slide this year! Any help with candy would be awesome!

Bringing this back, because non-Native fishers scapegoating Indigenous ppl is the same kind of "angry settler" misdirect that keeps us from addressing the root of the problem: extractive capitalism. And these settlers are being violent as heck.

Who wants to play the "Rule of Law" drinking game? Every time a settler invokes the "rule of law", they have to drink a cup of water from Neskantaga First Nation, in year 26 of their boil water advisory.
