The original sin of tech boosters and critics is an undue focus on what a technology *does*, rather than who it does it *to* and who it does it *for*.

Indonesia Darurat Udara Bersih!

Harusnya kita prihatin dengan kondisi udara kita yang semakin tercemar. Padahal, kota-kota besar seperti Jakarta dan Surabaya biasanya ada Car Free Day.

#polusi #polusiudara #indonesia
Menurut @CNNIndonesia, kendaraan bermotor adalah alasan utama kita mudah terserang penyakit bernama polusi udara. Padahal, polusi udara itu mahal untuk kesehatan kita, teman-teman pecinta lingkungan.

Asap setebal itu kalau dihirup bisa sesek!

Kalau sesek, kita harus keluar uang lagi buat obat dan perawatan ke dokter. Padahal, polusi udara juga hasil aktivitas sehari-hari kita.

Coba motoran dari Sarinah, lewat Blok M, sampai Lebak Bulus. Habis waktu, bensin, keluar asap.

Apalagi kalau kendaraannya segini. Buset!

I've been studying various aspects of #protest & contentious #politics in #China for 25 years.

What's happening now is novel, interesting, & potentially quite important. But we need to be careful about drawing conclusions or making predictions. A🧵:
@CamGeopolitics @NCUSCR
Since 1989, we've seen 5 main strands/repertoires of contention in China:

1) labour protest
2) rural protest
3) student protest
4) urban governance protest
5) systematic political dissent

Each of these has usually been disaggregated locally and separated from the others.

Labour politics has seen millions of laid-off (xiagang) SOE workers take to the streets, as well as many hundreds of thousands of their counterparts among migrant workers in export-processing manufacturing industries.
