A service worker revolt is brewing, as an anti-capitalist union, the IWW, is making history as the first to unionize a fast food restaurant, with 4 stores recognized + two more set to go. Now. workers at another restaurant have launched their own campaign. itsgoingdown.org/portland-fast

There's something magical about having internet after not having had internet (even if for a brief period)

* whispers to the pup *

pssst, zomg, let's watch the office; cause we can!

My pup: wait, is there even any other show?

Me: wait, but when did you learn how to talk? That's impressive Prof Books

It’s officially #baturday ! Let’s kick it off with this adorable plushie

Truly dunno how this happened. WE HAVE A HOUSE!! Just moved key shit in today. Sleepin there with the pup tonight. More moving tomorrow.

We thought we were headed to an apt and were gonna lose all of this. Garden, tiny house, piano, yard, room to ourselves and an awesome property manager who is an organizing comrade. All to get out of a toxic housemate situation.

Dunno how this happened, but so fucking happy. Looking for housing is a horror show. Finding it is a blessing

Lol I think in a different life I coulda been really good at contract law. Just drafted a rental agreement that I'm damn proud of. My partner and our comrade / new property manager both had zero tweaks

Compulsively looking at legal blogs for breakdowns of "will" vs "shall" and "agreement" vs "contract". Good times :)

Dunno why but my compulsive, quirky ass brain digs this particular strain of esoterica.

Today is hard day for a lot of people. Err on the side of compassion and understanding. Go out of your way to be a safe space today.

Today was fuckin bonkers. We were literally supposed to sign a lease today and move into an apt in a diff city. Was a cute spot but involved a lot of concessions (my partner and i figuring out what to do with tiny house, losing garden space, quail, our yard, moving into a smaller space, less room for Mr Books to frollick)

We just found a house! Today! With a comrade. Who is legit. And we're still moving in tomorrow

The dream space we gave up on for now is magically happening. Shit's surreal

Oh hell yeah! Look at these incredible youth. STRIKE! Inspiring mass action in times where such action is utterly essential

Love and solidarity to the young leaders organizing here! Beautiful hope

Finally a new blog post... this has been on my mind a lot and had to get some thoughts out of my head.

Long, personal, open letter to Media about the acquisition. I gotta dig up their email to actually send it to them properly.

This is not polished or perfectly what I wanna say, but wanted to engage with others about it..

The lyft... it smells like a hipster took a bath in a pool of desperation that is Abercrombie and Fitch.

Omg for real though, wear less cologne you insufferable creeper.

It's not sex appeal; it's an affront to senses

Lol, oof, lyft music is real bad this morning. The R&B that gave real R&B a bad name.

Unrelated, but also in the morning gripes column: is the worst. Die in a fire comcast.

Been watching too much Jurassic Park, cause I scanned this headline and did a double take. Dinosaur found in Australia, OF COURSE!

"Galleonosaurus dorisae: New dinosaur discovered in Australia

Scientists have identified a new dinosaur in south-eastern Australia."

Seems legit mate.

OrgSpace

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.

Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.

Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
