All "radical media" projects have been problematic, having fallowed them for years #fashernistas fallowing and pushing #openweb projects to #NGO thinking for funding/control. Some links on a series of projects for background http://hamishcampbell.com/?s=Realmedia We do need a #OMN not more deadends please.
Think its to direct and clear my self, if i pandered closer to the #fashernistas limits on "culture" yes would go further, but would go shallower. While our culture is dieing, which it actually is... makes you look agen at all the stupid reasons people have put to me over the last 10 years not to move away from the #dotcons into a sad and bad light. Simple and TRUE.
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
You have to respect the people on the ground, but now the is the useal #powerpolatics play from the center, diversaty of stratergys lets see what happens. Grassroots History duse not have kind words for this moment. Cross fingers and keep a critical eye on the flooding #fashernistas rushing to the "center" and away from the "streets". #re

Environment ‘could have been saved years ago if protesters didn’t look like twats’
THE biggest obstacles to saving the planet are the clothing and physical appearance of environmental protesters, research has found.
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.

- 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.
