- Use January 26 day as an opportunity to learn more about First Nations people and histories, and educate your friends and family on the ongoing impacts of colonisation
- Spend the day taking care of Country. One idea is to grab a bag and spend a few hours collecting rubbish, while taking the time to learn more about the Country you are on.
- Show up. Attend a protest, rally, or dawn service in your area (if it’s COVID safe).
- Spend a few hours using your voice and sign petitions for change.
- Ignore the public holiday and go to work. Many of our supporters have told us that their workplaces don’t recognise the public holiday, providing their staff with the option to work instead and take an alternate day.
- If you have a disposable income, consider spending your days wage with First Nations owned brands and artists, or direct your penalty rates to Paying the Rent.
- Listen to music performed and curated by First Nations artists like Barkaa, Ancestress, Nooky and Miiesha, and while you are at it check out this Spotify playlist curated by Meanjin based Yuggera DJ Dameeela, who joins the world’s leading DJ’s with her own track ID’s on Spotify.
- Spend the day watching movies and series featuring and produced by First Nations people.
- And for mob – practice self-care, celebrate survival and stay out of the comments section.
personally i would love to sleep. and yet
wishing z/ionists a very get the fuck off my blog
I already knew a lot of criticisms about cryptocurrency and NFTs but HOLY SHIT Dan Olson just spent two hours very carefully and viciously picking apart every single aspect of the entire operation and explaining exactly why it’s capitalism at its worst and is basically a perfect scam machine
there’s so much here that it’s hard to do a tl;dr, and frankly you really need to watch the whole thing to see how each point is made, but I will try to summarize the main points:
- contrary to the stated goal of freeing the little guy from the clutches of wall street fat cats, everything about crypto benefits people who already have a shitload of money.
- it does not solve any problems inherent to capitalism. it is anarcho-capitalism in its purest form.
- it’s very good at attracting people susceptible to scams and then keeping them engaged through groupthink, making it very easy to make shitloads of money scamming people and making it impossible to return the money without undoing the chain itself.
- the rise of the Web 3.0, which is indelibly intertwined with crypto and the blockchain, has dire implications for privacy. (ex: a public, unchangeable ledger also means that someone can write your home address and phone number into that ledger and you’ll be unable to remove it)
- it also has dire implications for the general population as everything becomes monetized and available for speculators to gamble on.
anyone else have a job that they literally only worked a few shifts on? mine was burger king and I quit after 2 shifts bc I hurt so bad I wanted to cry, the manager kept yelling at me, and they didn’t give me a break when legally they should have and I knew that was a huge red flag. what was everyone else’s short lived nightmare job
as I am writing this, I am currently listening to Muna el Kurd’s live on instagram (@muna.kurd15 on ig). Go watch it and see what the Israeli forces are doing to Palestinians, we’re literally watching ethnic cleansing taking place.
At approximately 3 am in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Occupied East Jerusalem, the Salhiya family home was stormed by Israeli forces and the Salhiya family was violently forced from their home. This comes after the Salhiya family resisted Israeli attempts to execute an eviction order on the property, despite the fact that the family had been living in the home for years. After resisting for more than 10 hours on the roof of their home and threatening to set both themselves and the home on fire, the Salhiya family was successful in initially driving Israeli forces from their home. But a few hours ago, Israeli forces returned to take the house and drive the family from their home.
The Israeli military stormed the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood at 3 in the morning, arresting Mahmoud Salhiya and two other family members and physically brutalizing anyone who was present. At 5:40 am in the morning Jerusalem time, Israeli forces began to destroy and demolish the home using bulldozers. The daughter of Mahmoud Salhiya, Yasmine Salhiya, says that her father had not slept in days and he was sleeping for the first time in days when Israeli forces broke into their home. She also reports that her 9 year old sister and her aunt were brutally beaten by Israeli forces and are currently unable to move as a result.
Israeli forces refused to allow any type of medical help/emergency service into the area around the Salhiya home, barricading any roads around the home despite multiple reports of screams for help being heard from inside the barricade. Journalists are also prevented from entering the barrier, with one journalist reporting that Israeli forces threatened to beat him if he approached the barrier.
The Salhiya home is DESTROYED there is nothing but rubble and destruction left. They were forced from their home with only the clothes on their back, they couldn’t even get their daughter’s pink schoolbag or her toys, they didn’t have a chance to collect anything. This is active ethnic cleansing that is being committed against Palestinian people by the Israeli government. This is what forced displacement looks like, the Salhiya family lost their home once before in 1948 and they have lost their home again in 2022. This is what generational trauma looks like, Israeli forces brutalized a child as young as nine years old.
If you support Israel, this is what you support. You support forced evictions in the middle of the night, you support destroying homes, you support the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people. If you support Israel, you are a fascist.
Here is a list of people to follow on Twitter to keep up with what is currently happening and what happens in Palestine:
Do not stay silent about Palestine, the Israeli government and military is counting on the world staying silent about Palestine
