@GwenfarsGarden That quality, and it was a neutral space. Rooms inside the house all had varying degrees of influence due to who had the most possessions in there or used the space the most. The porch was the only egalitarian space.

🎡 We come in peace they said, to dig and sow :greensun:

🎡 We come to work the lands in common and to make the wastegrounds grow :_earth:

🎡 This earth divided, we will make whole so it will be a common treasury for all :ancomheart:

: there are complaints about the inconvenience, there are cultural and classist insults being directed towards the rebels but *loads* of people are hearing about the biosphere collapse and *no one* is happy about it.

@douginamug I'm assuming we have data on 20 and 100 year scales to appease/convince policy makers, but the longterm science is really interesting! Your best bet for synthesizing what I was talking about is to read about the carbon cycle ( for a sense of timescale and then about its utility as a greenhouse gas ( for a sense of how much work it does while atmospheric.

As you can see in this picture, cops were using a double-decker Lothian Bus to transport arrestees (including one activist in a wheelchair) from the roadblock to the local police station. This is an absolutely appalling use of public transport infrastructure, and Lothian ought to be ashamed of themselves for allowing this.

This was likely a decision of the hostile management, who have been known for bullying their workers.

It's getting a bit morbid with Greta now.

The cameras crowd round her... but we all know what she's going to say.

Like rabbits, paralyzed in admiration of the approaching car lights.

2/2 "Jeff Bezos is an arsehole and I no longer wish to support his shitty capitalist company. This criticism is directed explicitly at Bezos and his management and not Amazon's workers". She laughed for a good 30 seconds and told me her bosses listen in to the calls. I feel like it made her day. So make a call centre workers day and close your account too!

Lot of people still on Waterloo Bridge. And a lovely choir.

At Marble Arch they said people are being arrested here now. But doesn't seem so at the moment.

Quite a few police and vans here though.

Big love all rebels who were out today. Well done and sleep well x

Berlin, blocked. Sorry for the inconvenience, but our house is on fire.

Room packed in Berlin for actions tomorrow.

Tomorrow's gonna be big.

Alright everyone, the International Week begins Monday! πŸ”₯ I'll be heading to Berlin for antics on Monday, then to Leipzig for the rest of the week.

Join in a local action if you can πŸ™‚ You'll find a lot of friendly, motivated people. If XR isn't for you, that's fineβ€”do what your good at. All actions, everywhere. In the words of the Lorax:

β€œUnless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
