New home sales fell in May, Y/Y & M/M. Theme of the month was sales decline by builder design. Few comments on demand slowing or skittish buyers, even w/new home prices +18% Y/Y nationally (survey record). Builder commentary from across the country per our survey to follow...
#Nashville builder: “Gapped out. Sales resume in June as new communities & phases start to open. By moving ability to contract on inventory homes later to finished drywall stage (window installation stage previously), expect sales to show continued decline. Decline by design.”
#Charlotte builder: “Paused sales from mid-May to mid-June in all communities & will selectively release homes for sale in the last 2 weeks of June & coming months. Sales look lower vs. last month but was capped due to limited lot availability & no inventory.”

Left Akrotiri just after midnight, the previous day in Pakistan - to #Cyprus Akrotiri

Trips to Nigeria, USA and other places UK has no business in being

At least two trips to Constanta, many to Germany…

Relentless waste of taxpayer's money, yesterdays sortie cost more than $2.5 million

WE pay for this (irrespective of which NATO country you belong to, it's ALL the same "protection racket")

It's why we have poverty and the homeless, yes it is

Why are the citizens forced into paying for ANY of this

".... thank you for your service...."

like what the absolute heck?

#Tacoma must be different. I've absolutely never seen "afraid they would break glass" as justification for the use of deadly force. I have, however, frequently seen "attempted to ram with a car" as justification for *police* killing other people.…
Fuck you, @TacomaPD
Here's @seattletimes playing telephone and reinventing a direct quote, “He was afraid they would break his glass,” as the police use-of-force justifying "The officer drove away because *he feared for his safety*, Haddow said."…

FAKE NEWS! She’s not sharing the full-video where mobsters surrounded the officers vehicle and he had to flee to safety. #Tacoma #seattleprotests

Pig was willing to kill all those people to save the car's windows, by their own admission. And they think this is justification.
Not "I feared for my life." Not "I feared for the lives of others." No. I "was afraid they would break the glass."

Absolute ghoul shit.

Breaking news: An abandoned middle school in Tacoma, WA. has been occupied by community members to provide shelter for a houseless encampment of 20 people, following multiple deaths from exposure in recent weeks. They are holding a press conference in about half hour. 1/?
A few weeks ago, a man in his 60s died from exposure in his wheelchair. Another man died from exposure in his car. This happens every winter in Tacoma. City council have been talking about turning Gault Middle School into a shelter for the houseless for a long time without action
Food Not Bombs has been working with this group of houseless folks for ~8 months now & have created a strong relationship with them. All are on board with moving into Gault. Tacoma DSA members such as co-chair @RebeccaforWA have been involved as well (informally as DSA members).

Today we served 60+ hot meals, bottled water, and socks to folks living/surviving on the streets of downtown Tacoma. Thank you Alma Mater (high compliments to Chef Roger) for providing a delicious menu of chicken and rice with chickpea & cauliflower!
With COVID numbers increasing daily, we are excited for our partnership with @lovebeyondwalls which enabled us to procure two sinks for our #Tacoma community. It is more important than ever that we provide hand washing as a human right to all.
Supplies in high demand are: hand sanitizer (or supplies to create it), socks, bottled water, and masks. If you’d like to donate, please email us at This is what community looks like! #ThePeopleGotThePeople

Make noise! Tacoma Public Schools wants to get input on whether or not to keep SROs in our high schools. Don't be fooled by the "no basis to form a response" option - we know policing is inherently violent & anti-Black. It's an affirmative REMOVE ALL COPS!
For now, fill out this survey and tell all your folks to do the same!

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.
