Democracy is stronger than the Trump Virus:
For #PDX folks, there are several locations:
On the bus back from the protest two weeks ago (with the sign lit up, of course!), some lady asked me what #MMIW was. After I explained the acronym, she just nodded silently.
Since then, I've been thinking about this: why were these the messages that wanted to be on the sign I carried to the protest of the TRE45ONIST's acquittal by corrupt Senators? How can I explain better that these things: "white collar criminals" waist-deep in greedy oil-based ventures -- these guys are literally the entities responsible for the MMIW epidemic, and literally ALL of the injustices that native people experience?
These disappearances, kidnappings, murders, arrests, and other harassment of native women aren't making news because the egomaniac in chief cannot stand to have anything that isn't about him.
Mark Charles says the best way to defeat 45 (and his allies he is literally sewn into) is to take away his audience; that is, deplatform 45. That the MAGA maggots' message is "uninteresting" is fact. In an information economy, "uninteresting" things are supposed to get cancelled.
Unfortunately, the deeply-flawed electoral politic failed at cancelling the monster. The monster wants to get bigger, on more screens and more airwaves and more channels.
To ensure that I, personally, don't inadvertently contribute to giving him an audience, it is essential that the correct message of what is wrong... that message needs to be prominent. The good humans deserve justice; I cried reading this story:
Fewer than 900 Ecosteader decals exist.
Ecosteader & Company is the only B Corp for "Public Benefit" of Turtle Island natives. We are a tiny organization defending native voices, art, lands, against exploitative billion dollar colonizer cash-driven social media empires: Fascistbook and Twoetter. As whitemanz CEO companies continue to suppress and oppress the genocidal history of the US ... as they deny our existence and continually attempt to ERASE FROM COMMON MEMORY the factual history of Turtle Island's colonization, murders and ongoing genocide of Turtle Island's native peoples continues.
