Some extra root insulation for the _ants' greenhouse.

Plastic reuse to provide heat and thermal insulation. ideas to help the plants recycle water better.

Kick the fascist out of the whitehouse, kick the whitehouse out of the courthouse, put all the white-collar criminals' wealth in the homeless encampments.

Stop building vehicular transportation roads and fossil fuel transportation pipelines.

Weŕe only three days away from Indigenous Peoples Month, all of November.

In the 1990s, some colonial gov´t decided the idea should be conveyed as ¨Native American Heritage Month¨.

Mutual aid program has started up again in my city.

We've already been making hundreds of meal for children during the school holidays without any gatekeeping bollocks after the government has refused to extend free school meals (which are means tested).

We are directly inspired by the Black Panther Party, the revolution in Rojava, the Zapatistas and other radical struggles.

We look after each other.

Spotted in downtown Hillsboro on Monday.

Psst. Check out our old thread with the tag for additional info.

Localizing food distribution lowers any rationalized "cost" of distributing food, except where food becomes imprisoned in a containerized colonial system, such as a grocery store.

The crimes and retaliation against the Mi'kmaw are happening because of restaurantier and grocery store markup. The colonists would rather rot and waste what was never theirs for a tax writeoff (or to make more money of something they've hoarded) than let indigenous water protectors and land defenders and fire keepers do their thing?

Decolonize from the colonial system into one of instantaneous skepticism about the colonial idea of sustainability. All of the colonial ideas about "sustainability" that involve money are not an accurate description of "sustainable".

Glad to read that "some" restaurants have blacklisted lobster from their menus for solidarity with this travesty of colonial greed.

How does your local grocer show solidarity with indigenous movements all over the globe? Not any yuppie gourmet I've seen yet does that.

Tangentially related is this neat map of what basically amounts to at scale in the state of . Lots and lots of hubs where opportunities to localize rather than globalize food. Why in a land surrounded by many farms (Portland) does produce need to come from California?

The ballot props I most strongly support are:

- allow felons on parole to vote
- allow 17-year-olds to vote in primaries if they'll be 18 by the general.

The arguments against these propositions were so bad, they increased my support. They were all "criminals are BAD!" and "teenagers are DUMB!"

the question to ask is not "does this person 'deserve' to vote" but rather "does the government deserve the power to take this person's vote away" and the answer is almost always "no"

"The Great Lie is that this is civilization. It's not civilized. It has literally been the most blood-thirsty brutalizing system ever imposed upon this planet. This is not civilization, this is the Great Lie. or if it does represent civilization, and that is truly what civilization is, then the Great Lie is that civilization is good for us." - John Trudell

60,000,000 gallons of oil sinking between Venezuela and Trinidad

(That's six times as much as Exxon-Valdez)

This is an avoidable disaster

If you can contact your representatives, please do so. This disaster will likely impact most of the Caribbean if not parts of the southern United States too.

This image shows current flows in the Caribbean. The ship is currently between Venezuela and Trinidad.

"While the western thinker has coined environmental approaches like: green footprint, green infrastructure, green technology, green approaches, and the green new deal, they still have the tendency to ignore the oldest Nations of the world, Indigenous Peoples.

The greenest footprint, jurisprudence, infrastructure, and approaches in the world belong to Indigenous Peoples. In fact, Indigenous water governance, jurisprudence, and environmental approaches are the oldest in existence, and have been field tested since time immemorial, surviving colonialism and genocide. The resilience of Indigenous environmental approaches spans generations. Today, Indigenous Peoples have enabled 80 percent of the world’s richest and rarest biodiversity across land and water."

The city currently known as Cahokia, located in modern-day Illinois next to the Mississippi river (screenshot of territories attached), is something I'd like to celebrate for #IndigenousPeoplesDay.

At its peak, the city had a greater population than London did at the same time, estimated to be around 20,000 people. It was comprised of ~120 manmade mounds of earth across 6 square miles. They had their own Woodhenge structures, and the city was a multicultural hub of the continent.

Decolonize food. Decolonize medicine. Decolonize housing. Decolonize from corrupt white supremacist networks. Decolonize the US from its oligarchal form of government! European statues, place names, words, languages, and accounting systems DO NOT BELONG on Turtle Island, and are killing the whole planet.
