Good article on what we know about Suffolk Downs... also they quoted me :)
Sadly Riot, the ever cuddly friendly cat who loved laps and was kind to all, this morning he passed in my arms and went softly.
Here are a few videos and pictures of him ... he was such at fatty and so fluffy. He always was excited to hear me coming up the steps, I remember when I parked my bike in the back of the apartment I could hear him meowing as he followed my steps down the alley and back to the front.
He was the first pet I have adopted as a kitten and thanks to the Angell Animal Hospital for diagnosing his heart condition which gave him another 4 years. But the chronic kidney disease took its toll, despite me getting over a needle-phobia to give him fluids every day for the past 6 months, no more needles buddy. I rubbed his head one last time with my beard which he always loved just before he left us.
Riot, I'll always remember you and will miss you always!😭 #cats

"When [Honduras] does end up in the news, it’s because of gang violence, homicide rates, and immigration. But what doesn’t get enough coverage is the ways that Hondurans are fighting for their country." #Honduras #protests #silence
The tech divergence is so frustrating as an organizer... the mediums for communication, email, text, signal, whatsapp, telegram, facebook, and slack... so many and soo frustrating cause none talk to all

As for ANTIFA it is not a place for regroupment of the socialist left, not that it is not important, in fact there are many in DSA in that network, but it gets similar criticisms.
Come visit so I can return the favor when I was in Mexico. I understand your concerns, but organizing in this space is going to be a slow process
@argumento @policeinchains I get it no doubt there are those concerns. But keep in mind having a surge of new members calling them socialists is so deeply new and many are skeptical that change can happen even if Bernie were to win. Those debates you raise are there. DSA is becoming a re-groupment of the socialist movement these are not all just brand new members, though a majority but there are good debates and struggles within. I need to reemphasize this is no the DSA from yesteryear. Socialism is no longer a four letter word it is more common and we have to thank Bernie for that in part. Anyway ... examples https://newpol.org/should-dsa-endorse-bernie-sanders-a-debate/
The bernie debate will be big on the approach and the concerns you are raising.

@argumento @policeinchains I think you are assuming a lot more of than what is happening. This is not an endorsement of electoralism, the struggle is inside DSA on ways if any to building a party but that is much farther down the road. Electoralism is not the end all answer. The Rank and File Strategy is also part of it too and re-calling people to work in industry is deeply important to the socialist struggle, we have seen that in terms of teachers this year, rank and file teachers confronts and changed the approaches of unions, those are key and working with new members to DSA and getting them into industry is happening, just not every where, which is why caucuses are forming in DSA that bring good politics to the organizing etc.
@argumento @policeinchains I think we need to agree to disagree, things are drastically different on the ground we have thousands of people new to socialism and working to become radical, I think the challenge is accepting this is the struggle and this is where people will become more radical and eventually revolutionary. The fact is we cannot ignore it, all the leftist groups are losing members to it and the matter is it is an umbrella and where we need to be.
@argumento @policeinchains What are you suggesting we do? Cause right now there is a lot happening and in the past year alone amazing amount in numbers of education and consciousness is great there are actively so many people willing to do a lot but at the same time needing to learn more, but they are so willing at this point. The benefit of Bernie and AOC is that socialism stays in the headlines, the word for most of our lives was a 3rd rail the fact that it is openly being discussed and challenged is a linguistic win that many of us thought would never happen (see Michael Alberts Parecon).
