How Panther’s Paw Publications is publishing its Dalit books during, and against, the pandemic

Yogesh Maitreya is the founder and sole staff member of this publisher of Dalit literature.

I think BJP govt can do better to improve their public image and suppress the "fake news" against them. Let's invent some form of formal language that don't have anti national words which can be used against the party. We can call it pressspeak or newspeak or something like that. 🤷

My First Week of Librem 5 Convergence

Rahul Gandhi: Our job is to gather the resistance. Congress party has to have the humility to absorb them, flexibility to absorb them & respect to absorb them. When we started the Congress party, it was bringing together resistance-

This is what India needs

Mishi Choudhary says #India's new #socialmedia rules may ensure only larger players are the only ones left to offer services, resulting in increasing the barrier for #entry and raising #compliance costs for everyone. #bigtech #tech #regulation


I got this question in @piratesin matrix group, and I need some help in understanding the context and reply. This is the comment

"Based on the suggestion by Transgender experts like Dr. Rachel and Transgender Historian Jules.

..Puberty blocker to "young" (Child) below 12 year old should be given without Parental consent..

**Basic Poll

How many here agree with this suggestion? And how many wouldn't mind at all, if their young adolescent child's sex get manipulated without their consent?"

Like, I get you want to track doses, but take the number and a signature. This citizenship proof is futile and frankly deeply shady. It’s A PANDEMIC!

American NRI 2 - But we also love the caste system because it does exactly the opposite.


No wonder they are called ABCD

Nodeep Kaur and Disha Ravi, young female activists jailed for supporting the farmer protests in India, were granted bail. I want to believe it's in part because so many people spoke out against the government's silencing dissent. Please stay loud — this fight is far from over.


"Naming a stadium after a sitting Prime Minister places Narendra Modi in the unenviable pantheon of the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and Kim Il Sung."

Government passes atrocious bills - People protest - People get arrested and tortured in prison - People demand their release - They get released after months in jail - People get happy - The bills stay

We need you to keep doing it.

If you think our work is important, support us.


You don’t have to be a communist to want progress for the marginalised. You just have to be human.

We have been running this repo for some time to serve native package in debian.

This is the second package in . It is unofficial repo right now, but if more people find it useful, it could become an official repo.

The idea is to host packages that cannot be supported for the lifetime of a stable release (~2 years).

I have proposed encouraging and celebrating inter-caste and inter-religion marriages as an item for @piratesin manifesto.

Do you agree? Then join in, only if we organize ourselves and proudly push for the society we want to build, we will have a chance to fix things. Signing petitions or just showing outrage on social media when something goes terribly bad, is not sufficient. We have to organize ourselves and provide a credible political alternative to people.

I just proposed to @piratesin to add recognizing same sex marriage to their manifesto.

If you think this is a good idea, you can join in as well.

Dear Mastodon, we're ~60 followers away from 12K! Can you help us get there?

Help by spreading the word that:

🔵 Privacy is a human right.

🔵 Tracking & surveillance are widespread on the internet.

🔵 Tor is a nonprofit that can help you take back your privacy online.

For a while now, I've been advocating SLOWING the rate at which we react to current events and taking the time to absorb, think deeper, investigate and form nuanced views to combat growing polarization, trends telling us what to think.

Hoping to read & engage with more bloggers.

One can only hope the Bench has taken note of ASG's probably deliberate attempt to mislead the court, committing perjury to allege that editing a Google Doc 'destroys evidence'.

Umar Khalid is in jail framed in a concocted conspiracy.

Kapil Mishra is roaming free still giving hate speeches.

This is what our country has become. One without a conscience, where law differs based on your religion.

There is no justice in Modi's India.
