Most of those hostile designed benches to keep homeless people from sleeping in public? They are usually just regular benches with the bar in the middle attached later with a few hex nuts and bolts, not welded. In other words you can get them off with practically any wrench that fits. I have been liberating my parks in my city all day now. It takes maybe a few minutes per bench. The only problem is finding a place to dispose of the junk bar when you're done without loading trash cans past capacity. Anyway, it's easy, it's helpful, and it's praxis.

EU staat op punt grootste vrijhandelsverdrag ooit te sluiten: de Mercosur-deal met oa het Brazilië van Bolsonaro. EU zet zo grenzen wagenwijd open voor spotgoedkope landbouwproducten, als plofkippen en rundvlees. Onacceptabel! #stopmercosur https://joop.bnnvara.nl/opinies/bolsonaro-bedreigt-nederlandse-boeren

It's a masterclass in practical entryism / sectarianism. If they ever had an ideology it's long been lost in the pursuit of individual power.
There is a silly bit of wasteland near me, that is used for rubbish dumping and car parking, and it's covered in wild flowers at the moment
DN!: Andrea Pitzer on concentration camps Show more
[..] And there were also almost four decades of concentration camps, things that were called concentration camps—civilian detention on the basis of identity—that happened before that.
(Had to use a second toot, it lacks concission)
Btw, yes, "deporter in chief" Obama was already doing some of this shit.

[..]But people forget that Auschwitz, before it was a death camp, was also just another camp that was part of the regular Konzentrationslager system in Germany. And that system existed for several years before it evolved and changed and grew into a horrific killing machine.[..]
Might aswel share a screenshot aswel.

Your first thought is a product of conditioning

Last week, @staltz published an article looking at the funding of open source projects.
It's a long-form article full of nuance:
Tl/dr: More needs to be done to fund open development, including more pressure on companies to donate to projects they benefit from, unionising, alternative licences and more donations in general.
This made me wonder, should there be a day on the Fediverse where we promote donations to a particular project? For example a #SupportSunday?
