Portland Oregon Activism
Hey guys. Long time lurker, first time poster here. |
I belong to a lot of different communities here on Live Journal and recently I saw something I just couldn't believe.
It happened in anarchists and it's rattled me from my self imposed silence and spurred me to speak out on the subject.
Portland's very own madscience was a long time contributor to that community. Just yesterday, the mod of the community, a supposed "anarchist" banned him from commenting. While they said it was because he was "making a plethora of thinly veiled provocatory threats over the span of his time here". This is absolute BULL SHIT. Honestly, I think it's because she/it couldn't handle a strong stance on such subjects and isn't actually serious about their "anarchist outlook".
I won't take this lying down. Soon I'll be starting an online petition/guest book for everyone to sign in order to have him reinstated to the community. Hopefully as a mod even.
I'll link everyone to it once it's done. Until then I suggest you all come together for this obvious crime against another human being.
