Weekend Reading

Basically, this is my link dump from everything I read over the week. I’m gifting it to you.

“Effective health care activism & advocacy needs to include disabled and chronically ill people.” https://t.co/jKxkMJ0gH0
Resistance: Pick a cause, make it yours – excellent advice for a lot of us who are overwhelmed with the magnitude of work to be done. I can’t say that I’ve narrowed down to any one cause but I would probably be better off if I did
The Criminalization of Poverty – we all know this story but still,great coverage by SPIN magazine
I am so Angry and Tired and Sad but I Refuse to Stop Rising Up – One my my most beloved bloggers wrote this. I love her and this,too ♥♥♥
5 Ways to Support Undocumented Folks – These are all good ways. Also check locally to see if there’s an advocacy group. Last week my local county sheriff made a statement following efforts to not only make Ithaca a sanctuary city but the entire county that essentially said he would never instruct his deputies to actively alert authorities about undocumented people (and added that if someone commits a crime and they’re undocumented, then obviously they’re not going to get away with it because that’s basic common sense). I intend to write him a thank you letter.
How to Boycott DAPL Banks – this is honestly the best and probably only chance to stopping DAPL but it’s going to take more than individuals. We need whole cities and companies to divest & withdraw
Amazon’s Supposed Automated Grocery Store Will Have as Little as 3 Human Employees — Grocery News–  yet another example of why we need universal basic income here in the U.S.

Thor Harris from Swans gave a brief tutorial on Nazi-punching
Ok,that’s all. Have a great weekend. Here’s a song of the day:
“Angelina” by Pinegrove. It’s a live version but not the same live version that’s on their new live album “Elsewhere”, currently available to purchase HERE as a “pay what you want” with ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO THE SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER. Good cause, good music.
