Northern Ireland clashes reflect loyalists' fear of marginalisation
A Sinn Féin funeral was the spark but loyalists in Northern Ireland have been throwing petrol bombs and burning cars partly because they fear political marginalisation. The union flag no longer flutters daily over Belfast city hall, a trade border separates the region from the rest of the UK and the police are allegedly beholden to Sinn Féin.

Palestinian election board approves candidate lists for May vote
President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement, which dominates the Palestinian Authority in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, is contesting the polls, as is Hamas, which has run the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip since 2007. Fatah is facing challenges from dissident factions including the Freedom list, led by Nasser al-Kidwa, a nephew of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

How does this contradict anything I said? Image macros and demotivationals were one type of meme out of hundreds and gained much more precedence outside of the communities that spawned them via shit like Icanhazcheezburger than in them, and the endless repetition of them and the drop in quality that came with it was a huge reason why people hated the sites. That, and a view that they were profiting off of them.

I'll also note that I never said template memes didn't exist. I said that these sites reduced non-templated memes into fundamentally imitative templates to post for upvotes, and people rightfully hated them for it.

So a bit of internet history, what happened to Revleft?

They seemed to have a really large user base and positioning as the radical left wing forum. Likewise they had some really interesting posters like Rafiq and the Albanian expert Ismail.

I would be really curious to know what happened.

Yes, but why? Revleft's problem was highly autistic and frequently sectarian moderation that slowly strangled the site, until Facebook, Twitter and Reddit were more appealing to its users. I remember looking at the site back when /leftypol/ first became a thing and seeing conversations where every single user was banned.

As far as I know he worked on a mundane documentary about pedophiles which presented them as people in need of therapy instead of monsters and given that he acted like a pretentious jackass in two posts out of three, he got constantly trolled by people with innuendo about being a pedo.

They have, but it's not entirely their own fault. It's the result of years of cliques and mismanagement, as well as major search sites like Google intentionally dropping them down the list for being 'outdated'. Revleft had all the opportunities to continue to grow post shrinkage, but squandered them due to mod autism and pettiness.

The tech media monopolies have been ramping up attacks on independent news media ever since the US capital riots, but they have really escalated censorship the last few days. Grayzone story getting tagged by Twitter as "material that may have been obtained through hacking", Analysis.news getting a video about the lack of police presence during the riots flagged by Youtube for spreading misinformation about election fraud, and Consortium News getting a video taken down for talking all about voter suppression.

This is not a thread for discussion about what speech will look like after the revolution; this is about what we can do right now to help our allies escape censorship and keep public discourse open to our politics. How can we help each other?

Also, if you aren't using social media like Twitter as some kind of personal outlet (i.e. you don't have friends on there, you're not using it to vent or anything that REALLY matters to you other than political engagement), become a rogue element.

Break rules as much as you please. If you are banned, just evade and continue. Mass systems like Twitter or really anything can stop a certain percentage of undesirable (in their view) content, but they can't stop all of it.

Keep in mind this may drag down people who follow you or people who you follow however, if my understanding of Twitter's algorithms are correct. This is why you'll see people get fucked over by the algorithm just for following too many people who are shadowbanned for example.

I wish I could just be an absolute troll on that website but I have some roots laid there, friends I speak with and don't want to lose certain things like my lists or following.

Can someone give me sources untainted by eurocentrism or make an informed post on the history of South Africa/Zimbabwe, recent seizure of land and how exactly the far right rationalizes the myth of white genocide in those countries?

Thats not a correct take unless you only measure success in things like diminishing the influence of the colonial class.

For instance you bring up the matter of Maize production however, that and many other crops have not returned to pre-colonial levels (and in some cases like with Maize even pre land confiscation levels) and this becomes all the more apparent when you compare its neighbors who did not have a similar land reform policy - this is an objective fact.

Now the common response to this will be to blame foreign sanctions however this likewise doesn't make sense.

Firstly - The sanctions were fairly limited in that they covered arms trading and dealing with a list of individuals and their families, did not bar humanitarian aide and were only enforced by the imperial core. Pre-colonial Zimbabwe had far greater sanctions placed on it - including fuel, machinery and 90% of its exports and unlike the sanctions against Zimbabwe these were enforced by both the Capitalist world and the Socialist one, with only Portugal and South Africa flouting them.

Secondly and significantly even during these "murderous sanctions" The US and the EU contained to provided hundreds of millions of dollars worth of food relief via the UN.

There is a reason why no country in the developing world looks to the ZANU land reforms as a model for development let alone socialist development.
