ROAR: **The Fight for Mom’s House**

"This is the story of #Moms4Housing, a group of homeless mothers who for 50 days occupied a vacant home in Oakland, California, until their forced eviction."

I really like the politics of the Climate Strike group I went to. They are anticapitalist and intersectional.

We're doing a rolling picket action on Oxford Street this Saturday, meeting at 1pm at the Oxford Circus tube station. There'll be actions in front of several business that profit from and encourage eco chaos in the UK and in exploited countries.

Capitalism can only justify labor which profits. Structures or institutions that cannot sufficiently monetize their operations whither and die except on a volunteer basis. Scarcity-immune goods and services, such as digital media, can then only be justified with the introduction of scarcity. A great deal of labor goes into introducing and maintaining scarcity where there is none, which can only exist by taking its own share of the wealth it extracts, cementing this gatekeeping as a shared interest between the owning class and this segment of the working class. Thus ads become a form of rent, the flicker of your eyeballs a form of payment for materials which have no per-use cost, and every plea to disable your ad-blocker comes from a hostage. Because capitalism charges us for survival, we find ourselves obliged to maintain the institutions that keep us employed, for in them we see the only means of living.

I've just come across a new French word: "clopinettes". It's in the context of low wages and Google Translate says that to be paid clopinettes is basically to be paid peanuts.

I understand the idiom, but what does the word actually mean?

@dreamsofcheese fellas, is it gay to have flesh and organs? 🤔

As I've started seeing hedgehogs again I thought I'd do a toot about how to care for the little critters if they happen to live where you are

If you've got a garden fence, try putting a little gap at the bottom so they can move from garden to garden easier, or a 14cm x 14cm hole in a corner

They like eating cat biscuits, maybe leave a little bowl of those out for them

And they always like having some water handy, a small dish of that is super helpful to them

Very glad to see, in the NHM's new "What you can do to help the planet guide", the line: "Share your interests by joining with other people and organisations. You can achieve much more together."
