To highlight the #OMN instances are about activism and campaign for progressive/radical social change. Chit-chat as a part of this is fine, But if you only personally post you will likely be more at home on another instance. Thanks.
This instance is a place to plan and talk about direct action in a practical ways, yes we can wax philosophical at times which is fine but in the end it comes back to real people doing real things on real ground to affect real power relationships. To work towards a more "horazontal" world for everyone and everything.
This is the mess we are in.

So yesterday I went out to chalk on the ground as a thing against Black Friday. (We also had chalk spray which should stay visible for a while and feels like doing graffiti)
It's not as big as what I see on here all the time. The idea was that the people could not get around climate change and exploitation on that day, and I think a lot of people did see our messages.
Planning to do more things soon.

Facebook Is Going After Its Critics in the Name of Privacy
– The company wants to shut down an academic study of political ad targeting, just as it prepares to reinstate targeted political ads.
'...The company swears this action is not driven by a desire to silence its critics. Rather, it says it is acting on its well-known commitment to preserving its users' #privacy.
Both of these arguments are (to use a technical term) rank bullshit. Facebook's claims that it can enforce its terms of service as though they were laws that had been passed by Congress are based on an anti-competitive suit it brought against a (now defunct) startup called Power Ventures more than a decade ago. In that suit, the company argued that allowing #Facebook users to read their messages without logging into Facebook was a crime.
The Power Ventures decision was bonkers, but that's because the law it invoked is even worse. The 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act was rushed into law after Ronald Reagan saw Matthew Broderick in the movie WarGames and panicked (no, really)...'
