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.”

First Leipzig event today, a "die-in" by the main train station.

Because we refuse to continue the extinction event! πŸ‘Š For people, animals, plants and planet, we can do better.

First time banner improvisation (into the niiiight)

You will need: a flat screen, baking paper, a pencil, a sharp knife, masking tape, a bed sheet, spray paint, lights, a cause, friends, patience.

1971, Chile: President Allende and co. had a network of 500 telex machines feeding data to a centralized point in realtime, using 'Bayesian control' to try and optimize the economy.

It was called Project Cybersyn and operated until the CIA backed coup in 1973,

Seems like an incredible tale: anyone got a good book/docu recommendation?

Wow! Central Square in , France, filled! Students of all ages with hilarious and powerful placards, paint action and creative chants showing their not willing to have the future squandered.

Well done all involved πŸ‘ Don't stop till its over! πŸ’ͺ

Hey! The Global Climate Strike for Future is happening tomorrow, 15th March πŸ””

Tens of thousandsβ€”possibly millionsβ€”of students will be striking school tomorrow because the systematic failure to curb biosphere collapse makes a mockery of learning πŸ”₯

Whether you're a student or not, try and get to your local one! ✊

I depackaged hundreds of hot-drink capsules this morning; various sizes for incompatible machines; all salvaged from supermarket waste: a meditation on modernity.

This too shall pass.

leute! Findet ihr es auch scheisse, dass wir tatenlos auf das Ende unseres oekologischen Systems zusteuern? Dann kommt zum Vortrag "= Reflektion Aufstand oder Aussterben" morgen abend!

Leipzig people! Are you happy with humanity sleepwalking towards biosphere collapse? No? Then come to the 'Aufstand oder Aussterben' talk + reflection tomorrow!

We're happy to salvage from the excesses of our current system, but we realize it's not a good, scalable or sustainable solution.

The series is basically propaganda for hosted by Milton Friedman. Quite interesting to hear the 'idealistic' version of things and a very successful way to provoke discourse into macroeconomics πŸ˜‰

Some old bike inner tube, a hole punch and a bit of brute force: finally found a way to keep a lighter on my keyring πŸ”₯

Right now a group of people are occupying the Scottish government buildings and holding their own Citizens Assembly.

They are doing this because to avert biosphere collapse we need to be making collective decisions. Us. Citizens. Not stakeholders, hedge funders nor nepotistic elites.

They're doing it on Burns day, the birthday of the Scottish national poet, a nature lover ;p

So I'm trying to build rhythm into my life. The annual cycle is increasingly interesting to me. Living away from the equator means I experience 'the 4 seasons', and I got to experience some of the more traditional (pagan) celebrations of them through my time in Edinburgh.

I found this graph on Wikipedia really enlightening, that the thermal cycle lags about 1.5 months behind the solar cycle here. Food for thought

Is a thing? A bio-branch of perhaps? Because Tinkers Bubble seems like it!

"We manage about 28 acres of douglas fir, larch, and mixed broadleaf woodland using horses, two person saws, and a wood-fired steam-powered sawmill."
