Reply to Bolsonaro Vows To Purge Brazil of Left-wing ‘Crooks,’ Designate them as 'Terrorists' by ziq
Violence against minorities have increased considerably in the past weeks. They believe we're a threat and they are compelled to eliminate us. The far right used social media very heavily to spread memes and show the presidential candidate as some sort of god-sent god.

I'm not caring anymore about these elections. If he wins, we lose. If he loses, we lose anyway. The struggle continues.
He's going to spend all day on social media saying shit, reverting progress made in favor of the minorities day after day. He doesn't know anything about economy (and anything that requires years of study) and he despises the political processes.

Reply to comment by throwaway in Facebook asks for a photo of me and then deactivates my account, how do you avoid being blocked? by alqm
I know what you mean, but it's the only way to keep contact with the other activists from my country. They won't all change away from it. I always try to get people to use libre alternatives, but they're reluctant.
Anyway, your tips will help me get it right this time. I have been using Tor and uBlock (not together). I might try again using a new phone number and email, adding people slowly, trying to be more like a new user.

Ha! Who's gonna do the dirty jobs if everyone opens a company? Capitalism doesn't work like that.

Reply to Charlottesville killer charged with hate crimes by ziq
I saw someone use a picture of torch-equipped neonazis around the statue at Charlottesville with the subtitle "we will not be silenced". As if they were the oppressed.

You open the Facebook page of any prominent female activist and they're filled with comments left by men saying culture of rape doesn't exist and women are exaggerating. It's disgusting what you hear them say. And we still don't know who killed Marielle. She was shot with a machine gun in the middle of the street in the evening. The militias are so powerful and influent, they have politicians and cops under their control. That's how they get guns and new targets.

There were reports of farms being investigated by federal police, who were looking for any type of "communities", taking notes on anything they saw and leaving.
