I really enjoy my "garden". In our neighborhood, it's acceptable to plant some plants in empty spaces outside apartment buildings, but you also need fertile soil. I have some flowers and just weeds that grow by itself. All other "gardens" look so sterile without weeds, but mine looks so alive! Just packed with plants - wild and planted by my.

On the other hand, I have to admit that concept of reparations isn't the most obvious and I see how it can be confusing in some parts. Some aspects of it have to be questioned. Especially if we are talking about such important things as land.

Maybe, it's really counterproductive to discuss it in terms of state-sanctioned actions. Maybe, it's more important to understand the current marginalized state of indigenous people and it relation to colonialism and your personal responsibilities. And, as /u/Tequila_Wolf stated, engage in grass-root initiatives. Keeping in mind that, ideally, yeah, it would be fair if once stolen land returns to rightful owners. This way you remove someone else deciding who exactly rightful owners is, and can find answers yourself by engaging local communities.

Discussing what form indigenous societies will take after all the stolen land returned to them is as counterproductive as discussing what color doors will be painted under anarchy.

Never really had to. Or, more precisely, I had to once - I was young, I was heavily beaten, I woke up in a hospital ward and there were cops, I was frustrated and ill-informed, so, yeah, I filed an official report. I've regretted it shortly after, because I have no desire to collaborate with cops, and they started to threaten me with making me being prosecuted as an initiator of the fight if I wouldn't collaborate with them. It have ended relatively well with no one being prosecuted.

I wish I could rob those settlers in comments here at a gunpoint and was like "It's mine now, returning it to you would reproduce ideas of commodification and moralism". Seems to me those fuckers never had anything taken away from them. Understanding the generational feeling of loss and severed connections is the most important thing in understanding colonization/decolonization.

I'm not mad. It's ethical. As is lifting a cheese.

I was in one.

Once, I had some problems with my digestive system, so I had to have some analysis on parasites. They gave me a long tube and said: "swallow it". It was a very long tube - one end has to be in your stomach and other way should dangle from your mouth. I struggled for a half of an hour trying to swallow it, with tears and snots. Then I had to lay in a common ward, the tube frome my mouth in a jar and doing "shakes" by my body to make a slime from my stomach went to a jar. It was terrible. But it might be less terrible, if there wasn't that horrible radio station playing boomer's pop-songs and, from time to time, playing national anthem. It was two hours of a torture.

So, here is mine:

When I was 18 or 19, me and my friends decided to go to a concert in one of nightclubs. We knew that drinks will be very expensive here, so we decided to got drunk beforehand. So, we drank some vodka in my friend's flat and went to the nightclub. There was a huge queue of people. So, we grabbed some more vodka while we were waiting. One of my friends was like: "I took too much, can't made it, I have to go, continue without me". After some more vodka and waiting, I decided that I, probably, too should go home and sleep, rather than go partying. So, I left my friends in the queue.

Then I was woke up by cops. I was sleeping on a bus stop. Those days we had special places were cops could put drunk people they pick up on streets, so they can sleep there for a night for a fee. Called "vytrezviteli" (sober-upers). So, they brought me in one of those. I was genuinely scared, because it never happen to me before and the fear sobered me up pretty well. When we were there, to my surprise, I saw they are inspecting my friend that left us first. They were inspecting his possessions before put him in a cell for a night. He was a LARPer. Actual LARPer. He has that "Thor's Hammer" necklace. "What's that shit?" - they asked him. "Pitiful christians! This is a symbol of mighty Thor, the warrior-god! Not like your weakling Christ!" So, they shut him in a cell, then heavy knocks followed: Boom! "For Odin!" Boom! "For Odin!" Then it was my turn for the inspection. They asked me to pass some simple tests to determine how drunk I am and decided that I'm too sober and kicked me out. At the morning me, and friends that was partying gathered at that vytrezvitel to met him. He was fine.


Also, you know that meme template, when a guy and a girl coming to girl's place, ready to have sex, then the guy notice some disturbing stuff on girl's shelf and noped away? Had the same story. Disturbing stuff was stylized swastika "slavic-style" and A LOT of books about Wehrmacht. "Don't you know, the swastika is an ancient slavic symbol?", "Why, yes, I'm interested in WWII history"

I'll definitely have to revise that section to be more about critiquing ideology rather than implying that the worship of strength and the strive for dominance is a valid interpretation of egoism.

So then, I think, you have elaborate further on why "desire to dominate" is not a valid interpretation of egoism

Vladimir Akimenkov - respectable ex-prisoner that regularly raise moneys (facebook link) for detained and imprisoned anarchists and other political prisoners

Rupression - main site for support prisoners of the "Network" case

Kanskdelo - main site for support detainees in the "Kansk teens" case

In other cases we only have bank's requisites of relatives of prisoners, that are posted from time-to-time on different telegram channels.

Very little information about this case. No group declared support to Ivan yet. For now we only have murky info provided by FSB. The info in the article is literally all we know and all of it comes from authorities. Accounting to the region, the case might be fully fabricated. The provided info might be deliberately misleading.

I think, support groups are waiting for more details from independent sources, but, again, accounting to the region and the fact that Ivan was "acting" supposedly completely alone - we might never know independent reports.

social media broadcasting of ideology/intent to act, and general internet carelessness

So many lives was ruined by this mistake, but still, here we are
