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
Youth climate strikes to take place in more than 100 countries
[Hundreds of thousands of children are expected to walk out of their classrooms on Friday for a global climate strike amid growing anger at the failure of politicians to tackle the escalating ecological crisis.]
@slackz FUCK YEA
@lugh stories like these give my soul air to breath.
Unabashed tears of joy over here.
We will hit a tipping point with our intersecting movements. We will have the will and the mass and the shared values. Millions strong. Billions strong.
We are going to fundamentally change shit
@slackz the paradigm i been reading about! eeey
ive been paranoid about where it will shift and what direction, but i dont think it can be understood with a direction
so the paranoia usually balances itself on this one
@slackz we were there last week and we’ll be there tomorrow too. And every Friday until stuff gets done.
@dch hell yeah! Thanks for being there comrade
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
