I don't even know what camps are left. Westminster Abbey seemed ok, but that was 4 hours ago, 2 hours ago saint james park seemed about to fall so I moved, home office camp was due to march out at lunch time to idk where but I haven't seen them? maybe they haven't left yet? Trafalgar camp is damaged but stands for the mean time
all I can hopw is these raids amount to some radicalisation. libs used to applause the cops, then they'd just chat to the blue vests, now they're getting mad. they can see the voilence the state intends to employ to stamp XR out, and that everybody who reasons with the police gets nowhere. people haven't given up, I can only hope this leads to a harder fight in the coming days. the rebellion isn't due to end, *eye roll* I know..., until the 19th and I think they intend to be here in some capacity every day
the space in front of the national gallery is just full of art, everywhere you look. every wall, paving tile, statue, there's a piece of art. all of it os respected and adored. this is what happens when people own the streets, we make them into our own, into a place full of art crying for change and solidarity
we're also carrying the names of over 200 dead activists from the global south. remember climate change disproportionately affects developing nations and that many there who take action die for it. this is a class issue, an imperialism issue as much as it is other things

@CornishRepublicanArmy I did some research for you since you're busy doing something more important than me.
"Noel Castillo Aguilar was a member of the Committee for the Defence of Indigenous Peoples (Comité de Defensa de los Pueblos Indígenas - CODEDI), an organization promoting the rights of indigenous communities to land, autonomy and self-determination, with a particular focus on the defence of human rights violations produced by hydroelectric and mining projects in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. He worked to protect the beaches and the communal and land rights of the community of Barra de la Cruz, Oaxaca."
@becky oh sweet! thank you! fuck, he was a real awesome guy
@CornishRepublicanArmy oh no I've been radicalized!!
@CornishRepublicanArmy Yes! One of the things that we are frustrated with in South Africa is that many people think that climate change is a first-world problem, even though we contribute *a lot* to it, as well as emissions and pollution also having short-term impacts (e.g causing lung diseases in Mpumalanga). Sometimes it feels like an uphill battle because there are so many problems here and people only really come out for the short term ones, like the gender-based violence protests.
Hellsite.site is a small mastodon instance focused on community, tech, hacking and leftist views as well as being fierce rivals with notbird.site. We run a custom fork of the mastodon code called Goatstodon that runs some slight improvements. Come for the shitposting, stay for the infinite polls!
