1) I'm pretty sure the following "revelation" will immediately enrage a lot of people, but if you can exert basic anger-management and read on, it will make sense. I don't identify as a #resister but rather as an #activist.
2) The two things are quite different. Resistance movements usually happen during extremely violent tyrannical rule and consist of several actions from infra-structure sabotage to underground clandestine sharing of information.
3) It usually brings together folks from different ideological approaches to "anti" whatever (anti-fascism, anti-nazism) and it is not uncontroversial.

Today we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the community action to save the #FitzroyPool from being closed and sold off. My tweet stream will tell the story.
#advocacy #activist @YarraCouncil
25 yrs ago, the Kennett Govt merged local councils and appointed unelected commissioners to run them:
Julian Walmsley, Barb Champion and Frank Thompson closed the #FitzroyPool because it ‘didn’t turn a profit’.
@YarraCouncil
Julian #Assange was also part of the community campaign to save this beloved icon. It’s very sad he can’t be here today to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Saving the #FitzroyPool for the community.

"Why #SocialMovements Matter", a thread.

It's been a long time since I've written a whole #book in longhand. 1999 to be exact, under the trees in the Botanic Gardens @NBGIreland.

My handwriting's got worse in the meantime, doing so much more by keyboard and screen. It's still a physically different experience, more thoughtful, more physically creative. There's a different kind of feedback as you see your writing change.
"Why Social Movements Matter" was an unintentional book. @GeoffreyPleyers and the remarkable @lecollege_em at @FondationMSH made it possible for me to spend a month just researching and writing - which is an incredible privilege.

For #TransDayofRemembrance I want to tell you a story.

Last Nov/Dec, I was homeless. @realDonaldTrump had just been elected. I was living in my car. I was cold. I was hungry. The pain from my chronic lower back issues was horribly bad, every moment of every day (1/x)
Sleeping in my car was making it worse. I could barely stand, let alone go grocery shopping or walk longer than about 10 min, w/o being totally wiped out for the next day or 2. I was receiving no medical treatment for being #trans, for my #AtrialFibrillation or my back pain (2/x)
I was unemployed, had no degree, didn't pass, and I was severely depressed.

Only a few ppl know this, but I think it's time to talk about it. I almost died last December. I didn't have much $, but I was doing research on the best methods to kill myself that'd be effective (3/x)
