It's that time! I have DW points to give away, and so I'm offering:

One year of paid account time to one user
Six months of paid account time to two users

To nominate someone for either of these, please enter their username in the following poll. Other points to consider are:

  • I don't need to know, interact with, or have anything in common with your nominee, so please don't worry if they don't overlap in our Circles.
  • Self-nomination is absolutely OK. I won't know anyway, because the poll is anonymised.
  • Sharing this entry is absolutely OK.
  • If you would like to identify yourself as the nominator of a user (e.g. "I put in so-and-so's name") so that, if they're selected, they know their donor's name, you can do so in the screened comments on this entry. Please don't feel obliged to do this.
  • I will be drawing the three names out of a hat after the poll closes (next Friday 16 December).

    One caveat: Seed Account users won't be included in this round of Seasonal Giving, as additional account time wouldn't be of use to them.

    Poll #17775 Seasonal Giving 2016
    This poll is anonymous.
    Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: Just the Poll Creator, participants: 10

Most of this is not activism-related; some of it is not even politics-related. But I'm reading a lot more widely than I used to, and I thought other folks might also be interested in some of my finds?

Election-related
* Graham preparing 'Dreamers' bill - bipartisan bill to protect DACA participants

* An unaired interview on Trump, authoritarianism and kleptocracy (Sarah Kendzior). I really liked this - more hopeful than the title sounds, to me.

* Nonprofit journalists are gearing up with a flood of donations (NYT)

* Fuck Everything and Blame Everyone (Deadspin?). This was a cathartic read.

Around the world
* How an Indian Innovator Reverse-Engineered the Making of Sanitary Pads (NYT Mag) - A guy figures out the cheapest possible way to make pads, reproduces the manufacturing equipment, and starts setting up little shops all over India run by local women. There are still good things happening in the world, you guys.

* The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare (NYT). AKA why you should throw out your non-stick pans, but also a decades-long story of criminally awful pollution and one guy who did something about it.

* Bloomberg's "Jealousy List", aka stuff so good they wish they'd published it. aka where I found a lot of these other links!

Magnet + iron filings
Photo of a grubby optical table with a piece of chipboard on top of which are two dipole magnets stuck together under a sheet of white paper with iron filings sprinkled on top to show the magnetic field lines. Also on the optical table: a magnetometer, a multimeter, two small magnets, a forming machine and a bean bag. You know, the stuff you usually find on an optical table. Or not.

Anyway, I did this demo for a TV programme today. It's going to be about the end of the Cassini mission, and the segment features my Big Boss, who does all of the talking. I had originally envisioned a sophisticated demonstration involving a magnetometer and an oscilloscope, and instead I ended up sprinkling iron filings on different permutations of magnets for three hours. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ C'est la vie!

* Keepin' It 1600 - podcast with four former Obama aids. I got hooked on this shortly before the election even though I basically never listen to podcasts.

* [tumblr.com profile] leupagus has started something called political homework that seems like a great way way to motivate oneself to learn the ropes of their local politics.

* 10 Questions for Fake News Detection, a handy chart from The News Literacy Project

* This morning I called my senator to thank her for her vocal opposition to several Trump cabinet picks. The staffer sounded very pleasantly surprised that I wasn't calling to complain. Which is to say, if your elected officials are doing something good, let them know! Positive reinforcement!

* Speaking of that, a call to support Kellogg pulling their ads from Breitbart would not go amiss.

[personal profile] ivy has very kindly acceded to my request and unlocked their post about Krav Maga and self-defense:

So, in short, if your self-defense level of desired investment is "I want to take a class once and then be done", go to a Rory Miller weekend seminar the next time he's in your area. If you are able-bodied and willing to go train regularly, consider Krav. If you are not able-bodied, talk to me about your body and your intentions -- I can recommend other things. If you are considering a firearm, talk to me/see previous post on that topic to figure out if that's going to match your lifestyle and threat model.

Also:

Your martial arts questions can go here, if you have them! There are many experienced martial artists reading, so you can get lots of perspectives, too, not just mine.

So if that's a direction your thoughts are currently trending in, for whatever reason -- go, ask. Trained martial artists are standing by to take your calls. *g*

Request (activist stories)

[personal profile] rydra_wong
If you've ever engaged in any form of non-internet activism, whether that's phoning a representative or going on a demonstration or volunteering for a political group or practicing civil disobedience or whatever, would you consider writing it up?

(Note: I'm purposely omitting internet activism, not because it doesn't have value but because it's something that we've got pretty much covered, and that's -- relatively -- a comfort zone for many of us. We are going to have to try to find ways to do more, to the limits of our various abilities.)

I was thinking about how hugely helpful it's been to many people just to have posts saying "I phoned my representative about this, and this is what it was like". A lot of us are thinking we need to learn how to find ways of being more activist even though it's challenging and scary for us.

And we also have a lot of people who have been or are involved in various ways, whether it's being part of ACT-UP actions or stuffing envelopes for a political party.

So -- please, share. If you've done something -- what did you do? how did you get into it? what happened? what was it like?

We need to share any skills and stories we have (and not just the stuff that sounds dramatic and cool and involves chaining yourself to things -- envelope-stuffing matters too).

Please comment with a link to anything you write, or post directly in the comments. Thanks!

I'm offering free training over Skype for anyone who wants to learn how to effectively call their elected representatives and ask them to support bills or otherwise take useful action. If you're interested, PM me. Feel free to let others know about this offer; it's available indefinitely.

*More fashion for the apocalypse: ThinkProgress's "Resist" t-shirt raises money for their "Trump investigative fund".

*[personal profile] swan_tower is starting a tikkun olam-inspired thread on the 1st of each month,on DW and on LJ at [livejournal.com profile] swan_tower, where people can talk about what they're doing to help repair the world (and yes, I think it can be helpful and inspiring to see what others are doing).

*Via [personal profile] sovay: Kellogg's have pulled their advertising from Breitbart, and Breitbart are outraged, evidently because they HATE CAPITALISM AND FREEDOM and don't want large companies to be free to spend their ad budgets how they want in order to maximize their sales. Why do you HATE FREEDOM, Breitbart?

The current editor-in-chief is quoted as follows:

“Boycotting Breitbart News for presenting mainstream American ideas is an act of discrimination and intense prejudice,” he added. “If you serve Kellogg’s products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table.”

This is evidence that they either have no sense of irony at all, or too much of it, in that vacuous way: "we'll say they're being prejudiced and bigoted towards our prejudice and bigotry, tee hee, and then their little liberal brains will have to explode!"

Yes, I discriminate against white supremacists. Deal with it, fuckers.

(Worth dropping Kelloggs some messages of support, maybe, as they're getting the full Gamergate masses unleashed against them.)

*The Hamilton Mixtape has dropped. This is not irrelevant. We need art and we need fight music and Hamilton is and remains an inspired and tactically-brilliant claiming of the myth of America as belonging profoundly to immigrants, black and brown people.

As well as the aforementioned "Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)", notables for me at the moment include Dessa covering "Congratulations" (a song Angelica had when the show was first staged, cut when it went to Broadway -- and I can see the dramatic reasons for cutting it, but it's great and a great cover), "Wrote My Way Out" with Nas, Dave East, Aloe Blacc and one Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the demo of "Valley Forge" (part of which turned into part of "Stay Alive"), which feels spookily apposite. Congress, I beg of you, justify your existence.

Anil Dash: Forget "Why?", it's time to get to work

Fight normalization in media. We’ll start to see the morning shows doing fluffy profiles of Melania and Ivanka almost immediately, along with “humanizing” articles and profiles of Trump following closely behind. These will be part of a concerted effort to make it seem as if Trump fits into a normal pattern of political practice in this country. We need to steadfastly, aggressively call out this threat by reminding media of his outrageous behavior and holding them accountable.

Masha Gessen: Autocracy: Rules for Survival

Rule #2: Do not be taken in by small signs of normality. Consider the financial markets this week, which, having tanked overnight, rebounded following the Clinton and Obama speeches. Confronted with political volatility, the markets become suckers for calming rhetoric from authority figures. So do people. Panic can be neutralized by falsely reassuring words about how the world as we know it has not ended. It is a fact that the world did not end on November 8 nor at any previous time in history. Yet history has seen many catastrophes, and most of them unfolded over time.

Liel Leibowitz: What to Do About Trump? The Same Thing My Grandfather Did in 1930s Vienna

The first, and most obvious, is this: Treat every poisoned word as a promise. When a bigoted blusterer tells you he intends to force members of a religious minority to register with the authorities—much like those friends and family of Siegfried’s who stayed behind were forced to do before their horizon grew darker—believe him. Don’t try to be clever. Don’t lean on political intricacies or legislative minutia or historical precedents for comfort. Don’t write it off as propaganda, or explain it away as just an empty proclamation meant simply to pave the path to power. Take the haters at their word, and assume the worst is imminent.

Robert Reich: Trump’s Seven Techniques to Control the Media

Another person who attended the meeting said Trump “truly doesn’t seem to understand the First Amendment. He thinks we are supposed to say what he says and that’s it.”

Timothy Snyder: What you — yes, you — can do to save America from tyranny (for obvious autistic reasons, I disagree with "make eye contact and small talk", but his reasoning in terms staying in touch with your surroundings and getting to know the psychological landscape of daily life is interesting -- some of us may have to look for other routes to the same goals)

5. Be calm when the unthinkable arrives. When the terrorist attack comes, remember that all authoritarians at all times either await or plan such events in order to consolidate power. Think of the Reichstag fire. The sudden disaster that requires the end of the balance of power, the end of opposition parties, and so on, is the oldest trick in the Hitlerian book. Don't fall for it.

As of yesterday, the President-Elect has proposed removing citizenship from people who perform an act (burning the flag) which has been established in the highest courts as a legal, Constitutional act of free speech.

This is not a drill.

[personal profile] nanila
Somehow, we are nearly eleven twelfths of the way through this year. On the scale of national and global events, it has been an utterly appalling grind. On a purely personal level, it has been busy and fulfilling. I feel simultaneously an increasing pressure to expend my resources in extending an umbrella of protection over those who don't share the modicum of good fortune I possess, and the urge to enjoy that modicum of good fortune whilst it remains. I'll soon begin my annual Seasonal Giving posts in order to facilitate the former.

In the interests of fulfilling the latter, I'm going to repeat the December Days meme with photos, as I did last year. Please suggest a photo you would like me to post and, if you would like, select a particular day. If you're bereft of ideas, here's a short list.

  • the kids, Keiki and Humuhumu
  • Throwback Thursday
  • the cat, Telstar
  • me (I do love a selfie)
  • local wildlife
  • macro shots
  • places I've been (see the "travel" tag DW/LJ)


I may opt to repost an old photo or take a new one, depending on temporal and/or spatial constraints.

Donation-matching

[personal profile] rydra_wong
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund -- described by Obama as "simply the best civil rights law firm in American history" -- have currently got someone matching a portion of donations, up to $25,000.

So if you've been thinking of donating to them, now would be an especially good time.

(And they're a 501(c)3, so donations from foreign nationals should be fine.)

They were recommended to me as top players re: voting rights and fighting voter suppression, and their Wikipedia entry is basically a list of Civil Rights Greatest Hits law cases, including Brown v. Board of Education and Loving v. Virginia (to list examples that even non-USians have heard of).

And their website (like that of many other civil rights organizations) basically says a (very polite, tasteful version) of WE ARE GETTING READY FOR WAR.

(Based on consultation with a British lawyer and his consultations with an American colleague.)

Basically, anything that's registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit is fine.

501(c)(4) organizations are entitled to do direct political campaigning and lobbying of specific kinds, for which they are not permitted to use funds from people who are not US citizens or naturalized.

It doesn't necessarily rule out the organization accepting foreign donations, but they should have a separate "compliance account" that foreign donations go into so that they're not used for funding work that's "political"(in the strictly-defined sense here).

In practice, a lot of 501(c)(4) organizations are set up with a sibling 501(c)(3) foundation (e.g. the ACLU Foundation) that does stuff which is not directly political, e.g. litigation, public education. So it seems like the best route for foreigners who want to donate in these cases is probably to donate directly to the 501(c)3.

I'd imagine that large organizations like the ACLU must surely have an internal mechanism for funneling foreign donations to the right bit, but right now they're obviously swamped so attempts to clarify via e-mail have been unsuccessful so far.

[personal profile] rydra_wong
So the murderer of Jo Cox (remember her? have we forgotten her yet?) was convicted and will be spending the rest of his life in prison:

Prosecutors acknowledge privately that the febrile atmosphere in which the EU referendum campaign was waged appears certain to have contributed to Mair’s decision to murder his MP, but this played no part in their case. There was no need to refer to the referendum in order to establish his guilt.

(Note: he was tried as a terrorist and the CPS have had no hesitation about describing him as such. However, his motivation was not an issue in establishing that he'd committed murder.)

The Daily Mail, which distinguished themselves lately with a front page labelling the judges who'd ruled on the Article 50 court case as ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE (because that's totally appropriate and could in no way encourage violence towards them, it's not like we have people gunning down MPs in the street OH WAIT), hid their report on the verdict on page 30.

And then they managed to plumb new depths, even for THE DAILY FUCKING MAIL.

Link to a Twitter image so you can avoid giving them the clicks if you'd rather

But it's real, I verified it (original URL if you want).

That's right: an MP was murdered in cold blood by a white nationalist terrorist shouting "Britain First", and the Daily Mail's response is to spin it in a way that attempts to blame it on a) immigrants, and b) the MP herself.

[twitter.com profile] stopfundinghate (associated hashtag: #stopfundinghate) are all over it, needless to say.

Short version, if you're not familiar with them: they're campaigning against this stuff by lobbying companies to stop advertising with the newspapers running this shit, with some success.

(I spent some time writing angry e-mails to advertisers with screencaps of their ads next to the Mail's article -- I decided it was worth the clicks to reload the page and take more screencaps.)

This is not normal, acceptable political discourse, and we don't have to pretend it is. The Mail has a relentless track record of incitement to racial hatred and bigotry, and they're now teetering on endorsement of political murder as, you know, kind of understandable because IMMIGRANTS.

If we're going to talk about "extremism", this is is (the Mail would, of course, have hysterics if an Islamist terrorist murderer was written about with such sympathy). And companies who decide to support it with their advertising money should get the same push back from customers as if they'd decided to put their ads in Only Slightly Covert White Nationalists's Weekly.

Interestingly, some people are trying a similar tactic aimed at Breitbart in the US. I'd recommend keeping an eye on this -- could be promising:

https://medium.com/@nandoodles/ppc-marketers-dont-wait-for-permission-to-blacklist-breitbart-news-83872c2a7442#.so78eie6v

http://digiday.com/brands/brands-pulling-ads-placed-breitbart/

In this case, it seems to be companies taking the lead in pulling ads, but there's obviously room for the sort of customer pressure that's having some impact in the UK -- anyone fancy starting a campaign?
