The wave of mass action in solidarity with the #Wetsuweten is causing major rail lines to shut down huge sections of service nationwide. As the action escalates, financial + political elites are calling on the State to clamp down on the "lawless" protests. itsgoingdown.org/action-shuts-

I recently learned that our gran cassa (bass drum) player calls his instrument Beast, as in the muppet. 😋

Electricity strikers in France light up poor homes this Christmas... Cut power and gas to bosses and police

thefreeonline.wordpress.com/20

"There is no “Christmas truce” for the workers of the Electricity Company of France (EDF) who are on strike. Workers are reconnecting service to poor families and lowering the price of tariffs to popular sectors, while cutting off power to police stations, management and large companies.

"Since the beginning of the strike on December 5, electricians and energy workers maintain power outages against Macron’s pension reform. A fighting method that exposes the strength of the workers and the strategic place they occupy, with the possibility of paralyzing government buildings and large companies with power outages."

I started the day by playing the intro and the first section of Bohemian Rhapsody, ending it on a calm Eb instead of starting on the drama.

State of #IsolateGab effort:

So as of summer 2019 when Gab ported every single user they had (active or dead) into a forked version of #Mastodon, the founder publicly said they had "over 1 million." As of today *still* just barely over 1 million.

And I suspect the lions share of those are inactive dead accounts still.

And look at the "insularity." 99.1 percent. They are just Gablins inside their echo chamber talking to themselves. And over time that just won't be sustainable.

Servers cost money, and even as they beg for donations, offer "premium features" for pay that other Fediverse servers offer for free, and do deals with whatever VPN's that are willing to take racists and nazi finders fees, still... it won't last if they can't grow.

They forked the #Mastodon code base because their expensive closed source platform was failing and couldn't sustain over time.

Thanks to your efforts to #IsolateGab they still are failing silo, and still aren't finding any more oxygen for what they are selling in the #Fediverse than they did as a closed source silo.

Keep it going in 2020.
