Ein Enkel Assimilierter 

Ich wurde in Australien als Kind der weißen, siedlerkolonialen Mehrheitsgesellschaft geboren. Erst als Jugendlicher erfuhr ich, dass Vorfahren meiner Mutter eine andere Sprache als Englisch gesprochen hatten. Als bekannt wurde, dass ich mich im Schulunterricht für Deutsch hatte begeistern lassen, wurde angemerkt, dass Ahnen meiner Großmutter „aus Preußen“ stammten. Als wäre das ein netter Zufall, dass ich die Muttersprache ihres Großvaters in der Schule jetzt lernen würde.

Heute vor einem Jahr streikten 1.4 Millionen für das Klima und Merkel versprach #NoMorePillePalle.

👉 Was folgte: Ein Jahr klimapolitischer Tiefpunkte. #1JahrPillePalle

Wir haben keine Zeit für leere Versprechen. Nimmt es nächste Woche mit uns in die eigene Hand.

Unsere Aktion rückt immer näher. Gestern ist schon viel passiert, aber auch heute und in den nächsten Tagen gibt es Dinge zu tun. Wenn ihr helfen könnt, ruft uns gerne unter 015221375655 an oder tragt euch für die nächsten Tage ins Mitmach-Tool ein: ende-gelaende.org/mitmachen-ak

Someone from Oakland posted this pic of a PSA truck with LED messages about washing your hands driving around under the smoke sky. A NEW LIFE AWAITS YOU ON THE OFF WORLD COLONIES

Last week I shared a piece from The Atlantic about America being in a death spiral

Here's Anne Helen Petersen's response to that piece:

"Living in a dystopia just feels like living: you get through one day, and then you get through the next, and then the next. You embrace mild self-deception and self-delusion because you must. You move forward because what other choice do you have? If that sounds familiar, it should.

Some people remain in complete denial. But I think many are beginning to see and feel what feels like an irrevocable decline. As Hayes Brown wrote around this time last year, “the weight of knowing, this time really knowing, our future is taking its toll.” We can allow ourselves to not just bend to new forms of normal, but actually break. This isn’t about being better about sorting your recycling. This is about completely reconceptualizing the way we think about energy, and waste, and consumption. It will require a complete renovation of our value system. And it’s going to be hard and uncomfortable and different, but you know what else will be hard and uncomfortable and different? The end of the fucking world.

We don’t have to acclimate to dystopia. We don’t have to compartmentalize horror. We can recognize this moment, as George Packer recently put it in The Atlantic, as a “plastic” one: when “an ossified social order suddenly turns pliable, prolonged stasis gives way to motion, and people dare to hope.”

…We’re all so, so tired. But we have to take those last, precious stores of energy — and we have to move. Maybe that looks like organizing. Maybe that looks like voting, and making sure everyone you know is voting. Maybe it looks like opening yourself to wild reimaginations of how society could work. But it cannot look like this. "

Here's an example story that was only possible due to #BlueLeaks:

> Leaked Documents Show Police Knew Far-Right Extremists Were the Real Threat at Protests, Not “Antifa”

> An analysis of leaked law enforcement documents reveals an obsession with “antifa” despite evidence of threats of violence to police and protesters.

"In recent days, law enforcement agencies from the FBI to county sheriffs have tried in vain to debunk baseless conspiracy theories blaming “antifa arsonists” for starting the devastating wildfires raging in the western US. But #BlueLeaks reveal that the same claimed association between leftwing activists and coordinated arson attacks has been asserted relentlessly, with scant evidence, in a stream of (law enforcement) intelligence reports." theguardian.com/us-news/2020/s
