Canadian Politics (Thread)
So my host has been doing some analysis over the last couple days about the direction in which Canada is headed politically. I thought I’d summarize here because she made some interesting observations that stemmed from my studying authoritarianism and white power when I was host.
Median subsystem in the Crystal Millennium system. @setsuna (alt: @Setsuna) is our host. Our system is DFAB, #femme, 26, and non-binary. We have #autism, #DID, #anorexia, and C-#PTSD. I have a penchant for computer science, American history, indigenous studies, and activism.
Stop using TikTok, their moderation policies ban pro-LGBT content even in countries where homosexuality has never been illegal
(they're also chinese so that is a can of worms in of itself)
Friendly Reminder About the #ClimateStrike
This is being led and organized by centennials, who in most countries are too young to vote – neither at the ballot nor with their wallets. By comparison, all millennials are now old enough to vote.
Please keep this in mind when you start wondering what a strike will “actually accomplish”. It‘s important for older generations to support our younger comrades when we can. 🖤🏴 I have been so pleased to see people of all ages showing up for Gen. Z.
Climate Strike (+)
Our workplace is shutting down its shops and manufacturing warehouses today so that employees can attend the demonstrations (which is mandatory if you were scheduled for work today).
I’ve seen Vancouver mobilize 5,000 people at the last minute to show down anti-immigrant demonstrators, so the headcount today should be well over that. Will hopefully see some of my old Peace Bearers buddies doing security.
@Malin Michael Turner (R-Ohio): You used the word EXONERATE
Turner: You can’t NOT EXONERATE anyone because EXONERATION is not REAL
Turner: There’s no LEGAL OFFICE of EXONERATION

@Malin You're in for a hell of a ride.
To everyone who donated or boosted our request for financial help last week, from the very bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. Because of you all our rent payment didn't bounce and we will be able to buy train tickets to get to work next week. I've been personally overwhelmed by the response. I'm seriously moved beyond words. Thank you all so much. You're all beautiful. - Ultraviolet and The Nebula system
Please boost this as widely as possible in the hopes that everyone who donated can see it
Asking for financial help
We won’t be able to make our rent on June 1 because we don’t receive our next check until June 6 (we’re an English teacher in Germany but are not yet eligible for benefits). Our bank account is currently overdrafted and we‘ll be short 300€ ( 451.63 CDN / 335.93 USD) for rent.
If you can’t help out with rent, donations for food and travel would be great. All we’ve eaten this month are tuna, rice, eggs, and toast. Boosts welcome.
You can send donations to paypal.me/arrix
