Yesterday some comrades were suggesting that people donate to the Mashpee Wampanoag. Earlier this year they dealt with an attempt by the federal government to revoke government recognition of their tribe & the land rights that entailed. They also run a community food bank. The US government recognizes today as Native American Heritage Day (controversially, as it coincides with what has unofficially been the major commercial free-for-all called Black Friday for decades now), so today seems like a good day to share their donations page

Hawaii, Decolonization, Fuck Capitalism 

"Wealth was determined by how much you could give not hoarded."

Hawaiian culture was antithetical to the existence of a 200-billionaire like Jeff Bezos. Who continues to pay virtually zero-tax while ransacking people, communities, and planet.

I have been working a lot lately on gtk4 rust bindings (with over than 180 commits in the last 2 months). There are still a lot of things to be done if we want the bindings to be in a very good shape (they are very usable though) by the release of gtk4.

If you would like to support the work I do to improve the Rust & GNOME <3, you can do so on liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui

info request re changing name and gender marker in the uk, boost please! 

hello!!! i am attempting a big project and would appreciate some input. i'm trying to cover the process of changing your name and gender marker with as many UK organisations as possible so if you've done this with for example, a bank/card provider, insurance company, utilities provider or on your vehicle log book, or anything else you can think of, and you can decribe the process to me, i would LOVE that!

Welp, my Pixel 5 came with 3 months of Stadia Pro… unless you already used a similar promotion, which I had. So: who wants 3 free months?

even after my years of extravagant, sinful shitting, my toilet always looks pristine and new, though i have never so much as picked up a toilet brush. my society friends shake their heads in wonder, but when they ask me my secret i simply shake my head with a mysterious smile. meanwhile, an oil painting of a disgusting fucked up old toilet gathers dust in my attic, a fresh spray of diarrhoea materialising across the canvas each morning

(extremely liberal voice) oh, but if everyone doesn't live in constant fear of a massive state apparatus of violence ready to crush us at its slightest whim, society would collapse!!

@urusan and i mean this in a deep way that is so hard to explain. so much of our perception of pixel art is bound up in the narrative of the picture. if we know its a little guy, our litte guy recognising network looks for little guy details. if it’s a basketball we hallucinate basketball texture. this stuff just isn’t there in the art itself for a neural network to work with. it’s in our narrative expectations

French politics 

@gargron Oh it's so much worse. In a few weeks, the French State has:

- generalized portable cameras for the police
- legalized drones
- legalized facial recognition
- enforced Muslim children being associated with a unique ID
- forbidden filming the police
- appointed the prefecture (national police) to decide who's a journalist

@LaQuadrature have aptly put emphasis on the use of drones and facial recognition to repress demonstrations and they've forgot to mention that drones might do an excellent job at continuously patrolling and linking the faces of Muslim citizens to their unique IDs, for example to raffle them.

The national police is already discreetly raffling undocumented people; they don't want the public to know this but I've witnessed them raffling a black market in search for undocumented persons.

For months, organizers in Toronto have been sounding the alarm over a looming wave of evictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Politicians at all layers of government have feigned sympathy, but have ultimately moved to secure the interests of the nation's lucrative real estate sector.
