"Today, July 19, we remember and celebrate the Spanish, Nicaraguan and Rojava Revolution. In all of them, the role of women has been and is essential. In all aspects, also in defence. To defend women's freedom is to defend our land and our right to self-defence."

Ring-police partnerships undermine public trust, threaten privacy and communities, and could be used to identify protesters and chill free speech. It's time for Amazon and Ring to admit the dangers of these partnerships and end them for good. https://act.eff.org/action/tell-amazon-ring-to-end-its-dangerous-police-partnerships

Some tips from the EFF (https://ssd.eff.org/en/module/attending-protest).
Before the Protest
- Enable full-disk encryption on your device
- Remove fingerprint unlock and FaceID
- Install Signal
- Back up your data
- Buy a prepaid, disposable phone
- Consider biking or walking to the protest (to avoid Automated License Plate Reader Systems)
During the Protest
- Take photos and videos without unlocking your device
- Enable airplane mode
After the Protest
- Scrub metadata on photos
The intent was always to support federation, and there is some very basic event federation already using simple JSON feeds.
Fully ActivityPub support (needed to interoperate with Mastodon) is more complicated, and while the data export is working, we need contributors to help with the pub/sub part of the protocol.
There's an open issue for it here: https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60
racism in FLOSS culture / call to FLOSS admins/devs
Wish I could recommend cool free and open source games to people on here in good faith but I honestly can't because the Culture is so toxic. I was just playing openspades for example, and a player used the n-word and the f-word that is a homophobic slur in five consecutive messages, and when I pointed it out other players claimed it "wasn't worth bringing it up" or even worse asked "why are you offended?" followed by complaints about censorship etc when I obviously took issue with it.
This is an issue with the Free Software community as a whole, either utter indifference to open racist remarks or full-on support of them in the name of "freedom of speech". It stems from the culture of 4chan's /g/ board and infests anything that is open and fairly decentralized, since that draws them in. They know they have a foothold in these spaces because they always have, far before GNU Social and Pleroma. They may not be a majority in terms of actual developers, but unfortunately, by and large make up the most enthusiastic userbase of FLOSS software.
If you are an administrator of networked FLOSS software or a developer of it you have a responsibility to do something about this rampant racism and homophobia instead of letting your free platform sit on idle and feeling smug about yourself for self-hosting. I urge you to check right now if anything you are hosting, from chats to games to file hosting services, is being used by this toxic side of the community and if so to put a stop to it. They feel encouraged by the platforms they are given to the point where they have the fucking balls to join any given server, say the n-word, and expect nobody to take issue with it. If they want a platform, they ought to pay for it themselves or maintain their own fork, etc. Just stop sponsoring their bullshit with your free hosting and labor and they will rightfully feel less emboldened to be assholes out in the open.

dt.gl - Digital Bartering During a Coronavirus-Induced Soft-Collapse
For years, preppers have been amassing supplies and contemplating what they would do to survive during mass-unrest and global-upheaval. At times appearing foolish, some old-timers have been preparing for decades.

Não sei se estarei vivo em uma semana,um mês ou um ano,mas já posso dizer que nesta Crise me deparei com o melhor e o pior dos humanos.Alguns, pequenos monstros carregados de ódio denso,e outros ao contrário,cheios de ética luminosa e afetos.Que os últimos possam erguer outros mundos.Fiquemos todos bem.🐞🦋
