We no longer like to think about bureaucracy, yet it informs every aspect of out existence. It's as if as a planetary civilization, we have decided to clap out hands over our ears and start humming whenever the topic comes up.
-- David Graeber

"Le vête­ment de la femme reflète son escla­vage social. On habille le petit gar­çon en vue de la com­mo­di­té : bras et jambes libres ; mais de la petite fille, on vise avant tout à faire une jolie pou­pée et la fri­vo­li­té dont on l’imprègne avec les chif­fons lui res­te­ra la plu­part du temps toute sa vie. »
Madeleine Pelletier, « Comment s’habiller ? », L’Ouvrière, 27 mars 1924.

Workers, the most absolutely necessary part of the whole social structure, without whose services none can either eat, or clothe, or shelter himself, are just the ones who get the least to eat, to wear, and to be housed withal.

If you're working in a participatory organization of more than ~8 people, I highly recommend #fishbowl formar for bigger topics where there is a division of opinion or expertise.

Inner circle: talking
Outer circle: listening
Switch circle: when you want and there's a space

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishbowl

It doesn't put pressure on less involved people to say stuff (like rounds do) and it doesn't go too chaotic like a big discussion. The format is self-moderating too.

Take the principle that two wrongs don't make a right. If you really took it seriously, that alone would knock away almost the entire basis for war and the criminal justice system.

Hey, les amis qui ont aussi des comptes sur Twitter, vous voudriez pas poker de ma part les fabriquants de biscuits (Lu/Carrefour/Auchan...) et leur demander de faire des biscuits au chocolat équitable ?

C'est re-lou de jamais pouvoir acheter des biscuits au chocolat sans financer la pire des exploitations, les enfants burkinabés enlevés et utilisés comme esclaves dans les plantations en Côte d'Ivoire, etc...

Je vis bien sans depuis des années. Mais c'est re-lou. Des fois ça me manque.

Epic win pour tou.te.s les zadistes :
Je suis tombé sur des notes de cours oubliées dans une salle qui portent apparemment sur comment gérer des projets de tests de pesticides à l'échelle réelle avec pour ambition de quand même prendre en compte les enjeux écologiques : où, comment, à quel prix,... Et bien figurez-vous que ce qui les fait vachement flipper c'est la création d'une zad :D

hilo largo de viñetas proletarias-militantes 

Vamos hoy con el #libro "Daily Affirmations for the #Revolutionary #Proletarian #Militant" de la enorme #StephanieMcMillan :as: :solidarity: :socialistflag2: :socialiststar:

Va a ser bastante distinto de otras #reseñas que he escrito por aquí: lo que haré será seleccionar, en un #hilo largo, varias de mis viñetas favoritas de entre las que la autora compartió hace años en una red privativa, y que he estado rescatando estos días mientras borraba sistemáticamente todo el contenido de mi cuenta de allí.

Creo que son mensajes e imágenes muy inspiradoras y que de muchas de ellas podemos sacar enseñanzas, reflexiones y consejos útiles. Espero que os gusten la mitad que a mí y que, si no la conocíais, os sirvan para presentaros a esta artista y compañera de lucha :anarchoheart3:

The main difference between the anarchists and the socialists, including the Marxists, lies in the fact that while the socialists maintain that the state must be taken over as the first step toward its dissolution, the anarchists argue that, since power corrupts, any seizure of the existing structure of authority can only lead to its perpetuation.
-- George Woodcock
