Des nouvelles de l'AAH :

La pétition stagne à 20%, c'est pas cool du tout
Je sais que c'est chiant de devoir re-signer et re-faire-tourner alors que la première pétition au sénat a déjà atteint les 100 mille signatures demandées.
Sauf que à partir du moment où la pétition existe sur le site de l'AN (et elle existe, on a déjà du la réécrire parce qu'une première version avait été très mal rédigée, donc les militants antivalidstes se sont unis pour proposer un texte de qualité), il faut qu'elle soit signée, sinon on perd.
On a jusqu'au 17 juin (date du vote) donc faut y aller 💪​

Amazon had sales income of €44bn in Europe in 2020 but paid no corporation tax

Our tiny not-for-profit based in Ireland pays tax at the full rate. Meanwhile, Bezos doesn’t know what to do with his money and we don’t know if we can pay the rent next year.

Farzana Wahidy, Kabul.
One of the most impressive colleagues met.

Today my mind is with Anja Niedringhaus, Jim Foley, Chris Hondros … and so many others :(
And somehow thinking of Robert Frank and Stanley Greene.

Instead of roads breaking up pavements, pavements should break up roads.

Because people walking and wheeling should get priority over cars in any area where they're likely to be in abundance.

Transparence : Le Conseil d’État donne raison aux Pirates contre Braine-l’Alleud !

En 2018, un Pirate du Brabant Wallon demandait l'accès aux projets des conseils communaux de Braine-l'Alleud.

Ce mercredi 21 avril, près de 3 ans après la demande initiale, le Conseil d’État a tranché : ces documents administratifs doivent lui être communiqués !

Grâce à cette victoire, les Pirates espèrent que les citoyen·nes de Belgique pourront désormais accéder plus facilement à ces projets de délibérations du Conseil Communal, comme le prévoit la Constitution. Suite à cette décision du Conseil d’État, les communes n’ont désormais plus d’excuses pour être pro-actives dans leur transparence et ainsi permettre aux citoyen·nes d’accéder aux projets de délibérations avant chaque séance du Conseil Communal.

Ce week-end j’ai installé Signal sans smartphone (avec juste l'appli pour ordinateur) – et ça a fonctionné ! 🙌

J'ai quand même dû collecter quelques infos à droite-à gauche pour ça sur le web en anglais. Du coup, si y’a d'autres personnes que ça intéresse, j’ai écrit un petit résumé de la procédure à suivre. #signal

Rebsamen où ?
Rebsamen nulle part !

Cette semaine, les fdo à la solde du shérif et du régent de la ville de Dijon, ont expulsé et ont permis aux entreprises de démolition de saccager les jardins de l'engrenage.
Les semis et arbres en fleurs ont laissé place aux lacrymo.

Je vais au rassemblement à 14h devant le théâtre occupé en soutien aux jardins de l'engrenage et contre l'arificialisation des terres.

Vaccine news - not *that* virus, but Malaria!!! as malaria kills approx 0,5m-1m people per year, most of them children under 5yo, this is fantastic.

Now, let's see if we can make this free. Like we do for all vaccines, because people before profit.

Black Software, the Internet and Racial Justice, from the Afronet to Black Lives Matter
by Charlton D. McIlwain

"In the late 1970s, and in earnest by the 1980s a torrent of black technophiles began making moves. They shifted the relationship that had made their parents and grandparents technology's victims. And they proped themselves to be more than just spectators in the coming computer revolution" p.59
