A conference on freedom-and-human-rights-respecting technology should not have a titan of #SurveillanceCapitalism like Google as sponsor.

I’m attending under protest to meet and chat to some lovely members of the community.
Google doesn’t belong there.

The fascists have just tried to have a 'free speech' rally in boston.
In the end it was an happening for divercity, freedom and anti supremacy.
Ten thousends of counter protesters have taken the street.
“You can have your free speech all day long,” the mayor said. “But let’s not speak about hate, let’s not speak about bigotry, racism.”
How the different alignments think about punching Nazis.
Je viens d'apercevoir mon colocataire dans l'escalier, avec une grande couverture grisatre sur les épaules, le regard dans le vide.
« Mais, tu fais quoi ?

OK Mastodon, show me your power.
I'm in London.
Are there any places linked to Sir pTerry Pratchett where I could go?
(of course, boosts are welcome...)
