Intentional Misinformation - MN protests 

I have to speak up as someone who works in zoning/urban planning. The narrative of protesters in Minneapolis burning an affordable housing complex is COMPLETE SHIT. This is the website for the project: midtowncorner.com/
As you can see, only 20% of the units are "affordable". Affordability here is based on the neighborhood's income, which will rise as more rich people move in. All this to say, people know what the hell they're burning. (pt 1)

We were invited recently to Paul Rollins' anarchist permaculture garden. We dubbed it "anarchist" because it mostly lets the plants decide for themselves how to grow with and around each other. It also doesn't require most of the typical "work" associated with gardening, such as weeding and troweling. It literally uses every space available to produce food. If you live in a place that doesn't get much water, it's great because it doesn't even require watering! It also produces an incredible yield. It can fit a lot of food into even a small space.

Any open yard space or empty lot can do; his is in the front yard of a house he's renting.

Of the many ways to adopt concepts that increase Community Wealth and make an ecostead, this one would be effective for ending food apartheid. (@emsenn probably will enjoy this)

1. Mow down the grass or weeds.

2. Cover the ground with cardboard or several layers of craft paper ... plastic can be used as well. Anything that can hinder undergrowth works.

3. Add a layer of straw. How thick this layer need be depends on many things: one is the amount of rain you get. More rain = more straw. The straw will eventually act like a sponge, helping the garden share and re-circulate the moisture underground.

4. Add a thick layer of compost, or compost / dirt blend. This is where anarchy thrives best, among all the decomposing ruins of a system.

5. Toss a seed blend (cover crop) over the whole thing. Cover with another light layer of straw and compost... water and walk away.

6. (optional) Plant large sunscreen-type crops (sunflowers and corn) near your indoor windows for extra air conditioning power in hot climates.

the best thing you can do right now is to find your local leftist groups involved in base-building, roll up your sleeves, and start helping. find and join a tenants' union, a mutual aid network, a community defense group, an unhoused aid group. if there's isn't one, start one

​I made stickers! You can have some!

TL;DR get me your address and I will mail you a sticker or two!

To recap from earlier:
1. DM me an address, it doesn't have to be your home address! Could be work, school, friend's house? Alternately you can email nogods@nebulos.us

2. Fucking glow in the dark! Well the alien ones at least

3. You don't have to pay me! I mean I won't stop you if you want to but it is not the goal here

4. Neither of these are my joke/ideas but I did create the images/arts

colorado politics, police state 

Those in the CO area, there's a rally at noon tomorrow (Saturday) at the Denver Capitol demanding that the charges be dropped.

This is a serious inflection point for this movement.

The Book on Fire Podcast's analysis of Caliban and the Witch, chapter by chapter, is one of the best things I've heard in a while. I still somehow haven't read the book even though it's been referenced by everyone a million times. If you're like me, this is a great primer:

(there's probably a better place to get the podcast but this was the first link).

A pair of mourning doves that have been hanging out in the front yard lately. Remarkably unconcerned by anyone walking by.

I have opinions on gender discourse, but they and I are cis, so I keep them to myself.

uspol - long, drug ment, ph/mh ment 

one of the worst things about living in the US is how often you're made to think about nuance between completely unacceptable, abusive alternatives in order to make basic decisions

which asshole do i sell my labor to, which capitalist nightmare company do i give money for living necessities, should i take a shift this weekend or rest and have less cash

should I pull all nighters to get skills that get me a better price for my labor or should i have mental health, should i buy groceries or should i buy medication, should i learn firearms or street medicine

should i treat my stomach pain with OTC meds or should i risk weed which works better but is illegal, which white supremacist reactionary should i vote for

even trying to compare the alternatives feels like an affront to everything good

Here's an awesome 50-year perspective on how the effects of community action reverberate in the anthropocene. If Georgians hadn't organized against an effort to mine the state's salt marshes, more of its coast would now be vulnerable to ocean rise.

On this 9th anniversary of #Occupy, with obsession over the presidency at a fever pitch, I'm especially grateful for its insistence that politics must come from us, not the false options of candidates.

Seriously, watch P-Valley. WAATTCCHHH IIITTT. Sublime pole dancing, conniving holy rollers, a crooked sheriff, an even more crooked mayor, the sauciest lines in television, all coming together in a beautiful and terrifying "Delta noir".

Where are my radical #anarchist #indigenous folx at???? Where my gun-toting, ceremony-holdin’, drumming and singing in the streets #natives at??? Where my tiny house warrior supporting natives at? Where my blocking train tracks through the reserve folx at? I am still learning to navigate this forum but I feel like there has to be more people here than what I’m finding.
