racism cw

(about the moderate livelihood fishery in nova scotia)


it's so disgusting to see how the police and government take the sides of white terrorists rather than defending the people of colour who the white terrorists threaten

when native americans defend the land and the water from oil and gas companies destroying it, the police won't hesitate to violently attack us

but when hundreds of white terrorists destroy the property of native americans, set fire to our buildings, set fire to our vehicles, destroy our boats and lobster traps, and threaten to kill us, the police just stand around and watch

my people are just trying to fish a very small amount compared to how much the non-native commercial fishermen fish, so that we can make a moderate livelihood. we've been fishing long before the white people invaded, and we know how to do it sustainably. yet the commercial fishermen, these terrorists, claim they're violently protesting us in the name of "conservation."

and many stores now are even refusing to serve us, to serve native americans, because of the events going on

racism sits comfortably in canada, racism sits comfortably in nova scotia

here's a CBC article about what's going on right now

how do ppl use MM/DD/YYYY date format... just nonsensical to stella O_o

day smallest unit, so comes first... then month, then year! that's SENSE >:o


intrepid-inkweaver -

When you're speaking, you say October 18th, so why would you write it 18 October??


babushka -

why do you say october 18 when you can say 18 of october


darkhorsedouglas -

Because we're lazy and don't want to put the extra word in. You can say the 1st of the month, but after that, it starts to sound weird. It's also easier when it comes to saying dates that connect. Why say "the event runs from 18th of October to 20th of October". When you can just say "the event runs from October 18th through 20th". Which is how it would be written on signs Oct. 18-20.


babushka -

"from 18th to 20th of October"?


mantis-core -

Where I live we just say "18th of October" too, by that point in the month we all know it's October so it's just shortened to "the 18th"

the funniest part of writing this fic is that i came up with the most humerous parts of the dialogue while i was in bed half asleep

i almost woke up laughing at my own semi-conscious jokes


Me when I see content of my fave characters that there is very little content for


Spending the past two months writing a ds9 fic about completely minor characters that others don't care about and there is little content for

I'm a genius and my brain is huge

australians of waterfall please if you could take a moment to sign this official parliament petition to establish a royal commission into corrupt australian news media, particularly news corp which is owned by rupert murdoch, if you're as tired of murdoch interfering with our elections as i am then we need this royal commission established!

https://www.aph.gov.au/petition_list?id=EN1938

note: the gov site atm is a little slow possibly due to traffic


mantis-core -

the petition was put forward by former prime minister kevin rudd and this is the tweet he posted this morning talking about it:
