This is all while farmers continue to protest and some are disappeard. They're protestinh new laws that protect prices of their produce.

> [...]small farmers will face a “death warrant,” and India’s fertile lands will fall into the hands of a few large corporate players.

A toolkit Greta Thunberg mentioned is villified and painted as conspiracy. (invalidly, of course)

It is unlikely that the centralized-social-network -based megacorporations will do anything, since they regretted that in China

📰 India Targets Climate Activists With the Help of Big Tech | Naomi Klein
> [...] human rights advocates are warning that India is on the knife edge of terrible violence, perhaps even the kind of genocidal bloodshed that social media aided and abetted against the Rohingya in Myanmar.

Twitter shut down dissident accounts but left this up:

A group of Black revolutionaries have started an autonomous zone named #OrishaLand in #Austin, #Texas. They've already done a lot to fight #gentrification by organizing material support & political education for the local Black community. It's a real glimmer of hope for what has otherwise been a shitty #BlackHistoryMonth.

was so much into conspiracy theory and boot-licking that it resulted in them being banned form r/socialism.

But sure, only tankies are the real communists.
Don't believe their lies!

Reminder that dev of is explicitly Marxist-Leninist and not just any communist.
It's the sort that cheers to mass murder.

dev explaining their politics:

Look we have an excuse for cheering to mass murder, because we have also nice people that are part of the development team.

Beside that, building federated infrastrucutre is the proof that we are the good people.
Bad people wouldn't support federated infrastructure. (except everyone that understands the benefits of such an infrastructure. Remember Gab? The thing run by fashs?, )

#forestation = growing a forest

#ProForestation = growing an existing forest to it's fullest ecological potential.

#ReForestation = regrowing a forest where one was before. This is often done to stop #deforestation and #desertification.

#afforestation = growing a forest where none was before, e.g. to regenerate the soil or attract rain.

Some of my favorite forestation projects:

The #GreatGreenWall of Africa - a project to stop the desertification of the Sahel region.

#Ecosia - the search engine that plants trees.

#ForestFinance - invest in forestation projects across the globe.

Which friendly floss collective can you advice, that could offer to Tails 2 public #XMPP rooms, that are bridged with #Matrix and #IRC.

Our resources are spare, and if we don't need to self-host this ourselves, there'll be more resources left to focus on #Tails development.
