What the fuuuuuuck how have I never heard of the Landless Worker's Movement


It's a horizontal squatting organization in Brazil somewhat akin to the Diggers, who occupy unused land it and just build farming communities on them. And it's worked. A lot of their squats have been recognized by the state. They now have over 1.5 *million* members, and I've never fucking heard of them

They wept at the sight of it, happy.

hi this is catdad here to say that the fact that the greedy nature of capitalism insists that small businesses must always be growing or else wither is fuckin toxic

open your etsy store and if you make $5/mo that's still $5/mo more than you had before and it doesn't matter if you never make more and you have to refuse orders from people.

A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.
