Found some woodlice and a heart and dart moth in the potato plants. A little invertebrate playground. I'm just hoping they're not bad for the potatoes.

Hello world! Want to build ActivityPub into your NodeJS app? node-activitypub is nearly ready for its first alpha release. Follow this account for updates!

I've shut down the kith.kitchen relay as there were some shitty instances federating with it, and the moderation tools are practically non-existent.

Only just heard about this. Academic shutdown in the US today in support of black lives matter

how does a country make its own myths? 

"The weird 'wales is your empty playground' stuff or the 'downton experience' stuff - it all comes down from these bizzarro quangos.

The govt cuts acquisition and research funding -the £ you could use to, say, purchase new items that tell a diff story; build links with e.g. a country whose objects you maybe stole and want to chat about; actually have permanent posts looking at Black history, instead of having to fund it like a 'special issue' project"..

Britain makes its own myths & they're mostly wildly dishonest. see hobsbawms 'invented traditions'. this national mythmaking literally erases history.

Neo-Nazis in Leeds 

Temple Coffee and Donuts got into shit these past few days when it came to light the manager is a vehement racist and abuser. As part of it, the owner has also been outed as a neo-Nazi.

He deleted most of his profiles, but there are still other bits around. This instagram account is collating it:
instagram.com/templecoffeedonu

As well as Temple Coffee & Donuts he also co-owns or is involved with Dragon Tattoo, Red Temple Prayer (merch/clothing), and Porky's Bakehouse

WP, we don't need any more posts on what you as whites need to do. you've known, done nothing, known, were too afraid, known, tried & it fell on ears of those who didn't want to know.

NBPOC & white passing folks, stop talking abt your privileges all fucking day.
how vain & unhelpful. IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU. ever think that going on & on abt how much freedom you have melting into white supremacy might trigger someone?

move, rb, link, donate, show up, post up.

From the Museum Detox network: "here’s a thread on how not to be a performative ally. This is both for organisations and those working in the [museum] sector."

“The Free Black University is a hub for radical and transformative knowledge production. The fight to decolonise education has been going on for years and it has become ever clearer that more is required than what the current education system can offer.“

You don’t stick a knife in a man’s back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you’re making progress. No matter how much respect, no matter how much recognition, whites show towards me, as far as I am concerned, as long as it is not shown to everyone of our people in this country, it doesn’t exist for me.

You will never be done decolonizing your mind. You will never be done learning to not be racist.

You will do well for days, weeks, months, or even years, and then you will say or do something racist.

Accept that reality now. Set your mind on accepting that reality and apologizing for it now. Because if you don't, we'll see what's happened on the fediverse this past week play out again. White people being fragile and guarding their egos under a guise of "hurt feelings."

UK, racism in my local area 

This chap who is a chef in one of the local pubs (and around the same age as me) relates various experiences of racism he has experienced, including insults shouted from a car when he was walking in Mid Suffolk/Babergh area (very close to where I work)
