This is *genuinely* what it feels like.

Chronic illness reprieve 

This morning I feel… so close to normal… pinching myself. My legs still feel f-d up, but I guess I am describing a morning alertness. Like my battery charged past 80%. Such an insane feeling. Now ofc the challenge is to still pace myself…

I TOTALLY love this literally “handwritten blog.” Literally everything about it.

ukpol nazis 

new education secretary tried to do the "cultural marxism"* lie in a speech and flubbed it and came up with "social marxism" instead

*this is an antisemitic conspiracy theory originated by the nazis

For those who need some historic perspective on Brazil today, I highly recommend Projeto Querino podcast. It's in Portuguese but learn about it here in English and a English translation of the first episode:

“Bereaved families fear Covid inquiry cover-up after ban on testimony” this is about state institutions deciding to let disabled and elderly people die *just because they were disabled and elderly* and then preventing a proper investigation 😡

3 Oct 1952 the Mau Mau campaign against British colonialism in Kenya escalated when they killed the first white European victim of the uprising. Despite only 32 white casualties, tens of thousands of Kenyans were butchered libcom.org/history/mau-mau-upr

I know what my activist friends in Brazil are saying right now. They don’t have the luxury of low morale. They will struggle til the end. The history of Brazil is one of vast struggle against oppression.

We will have a second round in the presidential election.

:Lulajovem: still have chances to win, but we don't have the congress majority. Most of Bolsonaro's ministers were elected for the Congress or Senate. After all we suffered, it's devastating news.

I could cry. Indigenous leader @GuajajaraSonia was elected to the Brazilian congress. This is truly historic. An important step for improving the situation for indigenous people in Brazil is better representation.
RT @GuajajaraSonia: São Paulo, nós conseguimos!

A primeira mulher indígena eleita como deputada federal por SP vai aldear o Congresso Nacional.

Muito, muito obrigada pela confiança!

Vamos aldear mentes e corações, e…

Não há surpresa na eleição de tanta gente escrota e neonazi p senado e deputados. As fakenews do WhatsApp e dancinhas reaças no tiktok deram palco p essa gente.
As pesquisas mais uma vez não detectaram o efeito dos disparos maciços de WhatsApp nos dias q antecederam as eleições.
Foi assim em 2014, 2018 e 2020.

Yes Lula won, but I don’t know how to explain how demoralising the results of the first round of the Brazilian election are. Bolsonaro allies, and ex-ministers elected to Congress, guaranteeing far right will continue to have a strong place in Brazilian politics even if he loses. And São Paulo state likely to go to an ally in 2nd round.

Lula has to battle to win and battle to govern
