Put out the same true message for the last 10 years on the #dotcons #failbook and twitter mostly. Put the message out on the #openweb #mastadon and #OMN mostly. The dotcons this has been blocked by the #algorithms as the message not sell advertising makes #fashernistas uncomfortable with limits of there lives
On the #dotcons the is a stale shouting growing between diffrent groups of activists in the #extinctionRebellion spread. Its both sad and bad to see "hate" being spread by both sides... i mean both sides, so dont think am not pointing my finger at YOU. The are problems with #er as the are problems in other actavist groups. Lets point to truths and not #BLOCK with noise please, #failbook and the #dotcons are not a easy place for this. More people should move here :)
Outreach #openweb projects to your friends. Get actavist/political organizing off #failbook and the #dotcons is a good first step. Nothing real at a grassroots level is happening until this mediation is mediated #OMN lots of other options but they are all built from stepping over this first stumbling #BLOCK

The right are takeing progressive agenders and turning them into conservative agenders. Probably the majoraty of my #failbook friends have taken this right path. From the mens movement to the #gender non debates. https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2018/01/23/25741141/call-out-culture-is-a-toxic-garbage-dumpster-fire-of-trash #fashernistas are dangerous.
Our liberals are busy posting right wing shit sturing stuff on #failbook they are not spending time inside the labour party fighting the neo-liberal agenders who push out the shit for them to stir.
They will get the world they deserve from the left and the right, if they don't choose a side. The center is not holding and is not going to hold.
Food for thought.
Rainbow gatherings happen far away from Babylon – the problem of #failbook
"We can't engage as communities, unless we have money. I can't even express how angry this makes me."
- an activist group using Facebook. People and organisations who feel this way are our initial targets.
We are launching two new Mastodon instances for activists and campaigners to aid communication of grassroot groups; putting social media back in our hands by providing a free, unfettered home for campaigners, NGO’s and activists to communicate among their peers and beyond.
This project is a way out of the restricted, algorithmic, for-profit mediation and commercialisation of communication we increasingly experience. If you do not pay to "boost" each post, a Facebook page will only reach 3-6% of members. This soon becomes an expensive drain on limited NGO and activist budgets.
Activists and campaigners alike are ready to shift their outreach away from the corporate social networks paid-per-view “walled gardens”.
Mastodon is the worlds largest free open source decentralised microblogging network; it’s thousands of unique, interconnected communities, filled with different people, interests, languages, and needs.
You’re free to join any community you like, or better yet, host your own, on your own terms. It remains possible for members of each to instance to interact with others.
There is no monopoly by a single commercial company, no ads, and no tracking.
We aim to help activism/campaigning groups to make this step now.
A note on Security and Privacy - these take a somewhat different shape within the #openweb. Have a read about our thoughts on the matter.
