The cleverest tyrants know that the easiest way for an unjust system to perpetuate itself isn’t to fight, imprison, or kill its freedom fighters, it’s to employ them.

Bonjour à tout le fediverse !

Vous pouvez y déposer des vidéos concernant les actions menées par le mouvement (tournées dans des manifestations ou sur les ronds-points, en faisant le nécessaire pour respecter l'anonymat des personnes présentes), des vidéos créatives (chansons, etc), ou bien qui pourraient intéresser le mouvement (documentaires ou des interviews).

@jeroenpraat @Jo She wrote in positive terms about the group Radical Anti-Racist Action (RARA), which was active in the eighties and nineties and which attacked places associated with Apartheid and later Dutch racist migration control. Interesting enough, I did the same thing, and even put some of their texts online for the first time ( doorbraak.eu/gebladerte/10915f ). But they never came for me, and I am a comrade and activist also. One thing that really differs between Joke and me is that I'm a member of a very strong collective. So the state seems to pick the low hanging fruit first, for now. But through Joke they want to give a signal to all of us in the anti-racist movement. And therefor we must all support her now! Solidarity with @Jo (Written by Eric)

Tiens si tu veux commencer ta journée avec une envie de meurtre aveugle tellement l'injustice est flagrante, tu peux aller lire ça :

Un gamin de 21 ans, handicapé à vie par les condés, et dont la mutuelle ne prend pas en charge "les évènements sociaux", réduit à la mendicité numérique pour payer ses frais d'hosto.

vous serez ravies d'apprendre que les flash ball utilisé contre les gilets jaunes sont de fabrication suisse.

Mais ne vous inquietez pas, en suisse, on verifie bien que les armes vendues soient utilisés dans un contexte moralement acceptable

We need a multi-national, publicly funded research organization akin to CERN/within CERN, whose whole purpose is to develop a state-of-the-art browser that's not Chromium-based. Make #Google follow our lead, rather than us having to follow Google.

If the Web could be developed using public money, why not a modern browser? Public funding would remove the Mozilla problem of them having to depend on Google.

With the amount of money governments waste annually, we could fund this AND Mozilla.

Your attention please!

Today is the Dutch #activist and #anarchist Joke Kaviaar arrested and send to jail. She must stay in jail for 71 days.

Joke is also active on Mastodon (and therefore the Fediverse) under the alias @Jo.

Her arrest was not a surprise, cause she lost earlier this month her last appeal. She must go to jail cause she first published alleged seditious texts, criticizing in her unique creative style the Dutch #asylum policy. The second reason was an action in a municipal council chamber against the #deportation of children and their families. So yes, she has to go to jail because of a now forbidden text and a non-violent action.

Read more about this all here:

This is the side of the #Netherlands you don't hear about comrades. So please don't think this country is a free haven. It' s a neo-liberal tax haven, and don't you dare to criticize the state. Of course the Dutch national media is silent about this and that in the same week as a near government coalition conflict about child deportation.

Please boost to show your #solidarity!

Idées de prospective éditoriale.

Le problème du HTML face à l'EPUB est la "portabilité", avec sa multitude de fichiers annexes (CSS, JavaScript, images, etc.).

Mais avec le Data URI scheme, une solution existe. Faire tenir un livre numérique dans un seul fichier HTML.

Avec l'avènement des écrans pliables (par ex. de l'encre électronique sous Android), le HTML permettra peut-être une créativité éditoriale supérieure à l'EPUB.

Un ex. avec notre antilivre dynamique :

Today I had the opportunity to meet Louis Pouzin, the inventor of datagram, whose work influenced the design of TCP/IP and made Internet possible.
Louis is still active and is doing open-root.eu , an alternative Internet TLD (domain name extension system)!

Algorithms aren't racist. They're racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic and more. And it comes from tech's homogeneity.
