(still) need financial help, boosts welcome
Hey friends, I still could use some money for the end of the monts, I’m going to be broke very soon :x
And there has been some mishaps with my work’s HR that made it so I won’t be paid my full salary for the first two months and that’s going to complicate things for me.
It would be nice if you could send in some money, I really need it rn even though I wish I didn’t have to ask again.
And also a boost is free and always goes a long way <3

Question about #OrishaLand. Can any of you find a single article about it that isn't written by a cop when you search online? Very concerned about this, given that it's gotten a lot more attention from fascists, including local police, in the last few days. Can someone who's not fascist write about it? Can people work on a wikipedia page or something?
Non-Black fedi please consider this a direct appeal to show that you actually support Black liberation in a meaningful way. Our first post on here about #OrishaLand got 59 books (linked below). We were kinda surprised that it was that popular & took that as a sign of interest/support. Please do something to help shore up this project's defenses so that it can survive, grow, & thrive rather than just be remembered after it's gone. If you would like to support in more direct ways than those suggested above or in the post please check out 400and1's social media to find out what they need most at this time.
A group of Black revolutionaries have started an autonomous zone named #OrishaLand in #Austin, #Texas. They've already done a lot to fight #gentrification by organizing material support & political education for the local Black community. It's a real glimmer of hope for what has otherwise been a shitty #BlackHistoryMonth.
