As public spaces + events are shut down due to the #coronavirus - the need for building mutual aid survival programs is now greater than ever, especially in the face of the dramatic failure of the State to respond to this crisis. Here's a thread for inspiration. #MutualAid
Last summer we talked to @simaleerbg of the @fcrcollective who organized a free store and free grocery program in #DC.
In #PuertoRico, for the past several years, people across the island have set up assemblies, squatted buildings, set up mutual aid community centers, and organized to carry out wide scale disaster relief in the face of hurricanes and earthquakes.

This is preventable. Everyone in #DC deserves to be safe from gun violence. We know what has worked to drastically reduce homicides in other cities. Let’s really #KeepDCAlive @MayorBowser @councilofdc
It’s time we implement a #VisionZero for gun violence prevention: a specific plan with measurable goals. Why do we have a #VisionZero to prevent pedestrian & cyclist deaths [27 fatalities total in 2019], but not for gun deaths [135 gun homicides total in 2019.
We need to fund & hire a Gun Violence "czar" to coordinate efforts across all agencies. DC has a Night Life Czar to cut through red tape for the restaurant & nightlife entertainment industry, but we don’t have a GVP Czar to cut through red tape on gun violence prevention?

This morning's 22 in #DC tied for the coldest of winter. Here it is compared to the minimums in all other winters in the modern record.
Here this is in chronological order and with some more recent dates called out. The call outs on the first were for the next in line behind 22 and the coldest winter high.
The first was an attempt to show in a less cluttered way but the movement on the x-axis may unintentionally portray a trend. Was not the plan.

Today over 100 neo-Nazis with the group "Patriot Front," led by Thomas Rousseau of Texas, marched today in #DC. The event was not promoted online. Patriot Front grew out of the same neo-Nazi message board, Iron March, which spawned Atomwaffen. A thread.…
Patriot Front is best known for being the post-Unite the Right rebrand of Vanguard America, the organization that Heather Heyer's killer, James Alex Fields, Jr, marched with in Charlottesville. Seen here with a VA shield, standing next to Patriot Front leader, Thomas Rousseau.
But the group goes back further, to the neo-Nazi messageboard "Iron March." From this board, various fascist groups formed, most famous being the Atomwaffen Division, which is linked to several murders and attempted bomb attacks.…

NOW: A goup of anti-Trump demonstrators have staged a sit-in during a tour in the Capitol rotunda. They’re chanting “Trump is guilty,” “acquital is a coverup” and “honor your oath!” #ImpeachmentDay
They are 10 women, who are now being arrested by Capitol Police, and came to #DC to protest today’s expected Senate vote to acquit President Trump. #ImpeachmentDay
Police cleared the rotunda as they prepared to arrest the group. Everyone else on their tour — members of the same anti-Trump activist community — were escorted out. #ImpeachmentDay

[Thread] #Europe just announced it would trigger the Dispute resolution mechanism #DRM of the #JCPOA. This is a big move but my guess is many people in #DC will wrongly assume this is an alignment to tougher US position on #Iran. /1…
On the contrary, the #EU maintains its balanced position btw #US and #Iran in order to keep door open for real negotiations on nuke and beyond. Let’s see why: /2
Last episode : despite the killing of Soleimani, #Iran stayed in the #JCPoA but continued its counter pressure policy on Jan. 5th through its “5th step” going against the nuke deal. The #US asked again #Europe to leave the #JCPoA. /3…

This just started off a huge rabbit hole. #Pearson #Bertelsmann #Obama #Vivendi #Bronfman #TimeWarner #BMG #MusicIndustry #Print #NaziPropaganda this is a #DeepState info haven! Just look at the top inv @ Pearson. They hide behind banks & mutual fund fronts. The entire S&P is DS!
Just the top investor is #Dimensional Fund Advisors. This was created by #DavidBooth who had deep ties to #UniversityOfChicago, this is where #Obama taught school. Can you say #DeepState puppet.
#ArnoldSchwarzenegger is a huge investor, which as you know pulls in the Shriver of the #Kennedy family (JFK was her uncle) & #California cesspool which includes #Getty’s, #Newsom, #Pelosi’s, #DAlessandro families I can devote an entire thread to this consortium.

My personal experience 2 days ago in downtown #Chicago @TrumpChicago in support of our 🇺🇸Country's 🇺🇸 #BestPresidentEver on Monday, 10/28/19. Hope it inspires more to be heard & it's okay to publicly advocate for an incredible man who has sacrificed so much for all of America!
I personally felt compelled to attend to show support for our President @realDonaldTrump
Here's why. I heard that they were going to be promoting socialism in the protest & incorporate the Teacher's strike people who brought children & even infants to boost #'s.
A lil' background on me:
• 1st Generation American-Serbian
• Parents came here separately & were legal immigrants who were sponsored by a relatives here in the USA.
• My parents FLED Communist Yugoslavia.
• Actual name: Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia

Many themes currently in the news.

#civilwar talk has ramped up ever since @poyus shined a light on reality of D-party divisiveness. Anons had no illusions long ago of the evil we face.
searching for #Never also brought up posts about @potus being insulated from #impeachment scams.

In front of the White House now: anti-white supremacy rally in response to a weekend of violence that left more than 30 people dead in two mass shootings over a span of mere hours. #dc
Sherrilyn Ifill, the director of the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, tells the crowd here that President Trump “did not invent white supremacy,” though he has given it new life in America. People in the audience are shouting “yes!” as she speaks. #dc #WhiteSupremacy
The list of grievances here is long: Speakers are decrying gun violence, racism, the president’s rhetoric, Russian election interference, a lack of action in the Senate on gun control and lack of action against white supremacist groups by the US Department of Justice. #DC

Demand leader of 'Latinos for Trump' Bianca Garcia @FabMAGADiva, denounce + fire Enrique Tarrio, leader of violent far-Right group the #ProudBoys who attended the neo-Nazi rally 'Unite the Right' in Charlottesville + is the current "Director" of Latinos for #Trump in #Florida.
@FabMAGADiva Tarrio attended Unite the Right as part of the Proud Boys "military wing," the Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights. He can be seen wearing their "V" patch. FOAK was led by white nationalists Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman and Augustus Invictus, who was scheduled to speak at the rally.
@FabMAGADiva Tarrio, like rest of the #ProudBoys, celebrates and defends literal fascist violence. Here he is in #DC for the #DemandFreeSpeech rally, sporting the brand, RWDS, which stands for "Right Wing Death Squads." The same brand makes shirts celebrating the murderous dictator Pinochet.

US taxpayers are paying for it all.

The US taxpayer is funding the very people we are engaged in taking down.
The hole is deep.

Starting now: Catholics are gathered on the Capital lawn to protest the Trump Administration’s immigration policies and to call on Congress to defund ICE, stop detaining children and reform immigration policies they’re calling “inhumane.” They’re calling this #catholicdayofaction
This is the second time this week faith leaders have come to #DC to protest the Trump Administration’s immigration policy — on Tuesday, 10 Jewish activists were arrested inside ICE headquarters in an effort to disrupt operations there:…
Families gathered here are holding up photographs of migrant children who have died in federal custody in recent months. They list their names, ages and the day they died. Otjer signs say things like, “children do not belong on cages.” #CatholicDayOfAction #DC
