You can see how this rotten country works. Gov leaks rabid racist policy to the press. BBC promotes it. Yougov push polls on it. BBC Question Time makes it seem like the public are asking about it.

"Consider these two units of time: 36 seconds, the rest of your life. The job that takes 36 seconds to do that you're going to do for the rest of your life. I don't know a better definition of alienation than that..." - Martin Glaberman

not sure this is a traditional media vs new media issue or a podcast/video vs text one. To me it feels like the latter - it is way harder to debunk audio.

This is supposedly in reference to an anarchist journalist merely telling people on their (private, locked) account about a concerning DM convo with an "anti-racist" reporter who expressed hostility to abolition & a love for cops. That is NOT "doing the work of Nazis for them."

We slowly creep towards a fuller understanding of decision making behind the scenes at the Museum of the Home re: slave trader statue. In a public consultation 71% voted for it to be removed. Many Hackney residents want to know why it’s still up? Hear from &

As the British government ramps up authoritarian measures, blames individual misbehaviour for spreading Covid, this helps to think through what sort of changes actually might or might not work.

if I thought my coworkers were silly for fighting for basic job security in the workplace I would simply not admit it on Twitter, where thousands of people can learn something new and unpleasant about my personality

There's a critique of liberal anti-fascism & some street anti-fascism that it focuses on far right groups to the exclusion of police & ICE, although that would be a silly critique to make after a sustained anti-police uprising. Also not being made here.

those saying that struggles against policing distract from political economy have a terrifyingly ahistorical understanding of it. policing is a means of repressing labor, enforcing inequality, naturalizing property. it binds the political to the economic with murderous force.

Mainstream political discourse was doing dapper white nationalist photo spreads for years before they took white supremacist street gangs remotely seriously. I guess instead of being 'obsessed' with them, people could represent neo-nazis in court pro-bono though?

A world without borders. A world without passports and visas and green cards and "papers please". A world without people dying in the desert of thirst or drowning after their homemade raft capsizes. A world without border patrols, detentions, deportations, separations, camps.
