Abolition in the mainstream press! Awesome article in @nytimes magazine on CR cofounder and community advisor Ruth Wilson Gilmore. In addition to being a powerful profile on Ruthie, this article is about ABOLITION. It explores the political relevance of abolition as a theory of change and some great historical moments of campaigns fighting imprisonment and prison construction. Abolition is for everyone (esp workers-- undocumented, documented not work, union, informal economy, etc!), and Ruthie reminds us where to make abolitionist movement connections.

Don't get it twisted witches, we're DEFINITELY interested in that big dumb baby getting impeached... but remember that he isn't acting alone. Even if he's ousted, the bigots he's empowered aren’t gonna meekly hand over their power and just allow us to dismantle the white heteropatriarchy; there’s a lot of work to do. States are still trying to pass anti-choice bills, increase police surveillance, and deprive Indigenous communities of clean water and other necessary resources. The politics pissing us off on a federal level are playing out in our City Halls. What's going on in YOUR state, in YOUR city? What are you and your coven doing about it? We've been getting more involved in Affordable Housing in Salem, and one of our sister witches is even running for school committee! 📷: @thehoodwitch #muellerreport#muellerinvestigation#impeachthemotherfucker#resist#persist#witchesofinstagram#witchthevote#election#coven

I am a whole who found another whole. (And we can choose to make another whole, or not.)
Morning mic drop from @sasa_elebea
Climate activist @gretathunberg spoke at the European Parliament on behalf of the thousands of young people standing up for climate action. She asked EU policy makers to not fail on this urgent issue!
The solutions exist. What is missing is the political will to act!
Anyone see how the White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley reacts to special counsel Robert Mueller's redacted report? 🤨
Watch CNN's #AndersonCooper “Did the President lie? Did the President lie?" .
#HoganGidley “No, I'm not aware of him lying. He hasn't lied to me." .
Our Democratic leaders will not #ImpeachTrump unless we call them and demand impeachment. It’s really that simple. They will not act unless we act!!
It must not have been a nice surprise to find a long strip of asphalt, where he would rather lay his eggs. But the one where a green turtle came across on an island in the Maldives was the new aerial runway at Maafaru airport. The poor turtle did nothing but return to its nesting ground. The green turtles, in fact, trust their instinct that leads them to the same nesting site where they were born, to lay their eggs. Too bad that in the meantime there has been some change. But the concern is so much. If the eggs have not been properly protected, how can we be certain of the protection of these animals?
So excited to have this! It is a 45 release of the collaboration between the Specials and activist Saffiyah Khan. Khan was made famous by this photo of her confronting an EDL fascist at a hate event in Birmingham. The Specials reached out to her for potential collaboration because she was wearing their t-shirt during the incident and the results are nothing short of badass!!! I missed it on Record Store Day, so had to pay a little extra on discogs, but so happy to have it since only 750 were pressed. #records#45s#ska#2tone#thespecials#saffiyahkhan#resist
