Have you seen this? An actual public appeal from a magician to get others to join in his magic to influence world events. This rebrand is extremely timely

"The Green Anti-Capitalist Front is an alliance of groups and individuals united by a belief that capitalism is one of the core causes of the environmental crisis threatening us all, and that if we do not act soon the costs of that crisis will fall on the poor and powerless."

"We are calling for a broad anti-capitalist environmental movement based around the following points of unity:

1. An existential threat
2. Capitalism is the crisis
3. International class solidarity
4. Building collective power
5. Diversity of tactics
6. Horizontal, bottom-up structures
7. We need a new system"

"We do not have faith that capitalists – or their parliamentarian representatives – will act in time to limit climate change in a meaningful way."

I'm starting a monthly video call, discussing tech, politics, the commons, enclosure, progress, regress, etc.

It's called Phantasms of Decentralisation, after a panel I was on in Berlin earlier this month.

The first one will be Saturday the 23rd March at 7pm UK time, 2pm EST for an hour.

Let me know if you'd like to attend, either to talk or just listen

When the climate wars kick off in 2025, there's no way I'm fighting for the UK. Maybe the Netherlands, or Denmark, but hopefully the Co-operative Republic of Malta will exist by then

Politics is not just for the mid-terms! If you have been energised/radicalised and are looking for some way to continue helping, ProgCode (join.progco.de) are a group of progressive coders and non-coders, working on tech for political change.

You don't need to be a coder to join, there's lots of ways for people of any background to help out, just fill out the registration form and get involved!

My own project, Wobbly (21st century worker's power), has been massively helped by ProgCode

Are there any funny mastodon instances? I'm ok with problematic, but not looking for that especially

2014 was the first year when more than half of all Americans owned a smartphone. The information age came to an end, and we entered the info-motion age.

You can't be confident unless you know who you are. That goes for people, companies, countries, social movements, everything

(Manual retoot from @tao@sunbeam.city ) "what are your favorite platforms for decentralized decision-making? has cool voting features, but it seems like you can't organise threads into categories. discourse might be better for discussion but with limited polling features. what do you use and why?"

This is for my project wobbly.app , we're looking for a medium speed communication service (i.e. slower than discord, faster than github)

I'm starting a new project next week, a collaboration with a local solidarity network. My aim is for us to build up a shared vocabulary of the situation they're in, and to save them more time than talking to me uses up!

My theory on and : people who came of age in the end of history have taken the return of history really badly
