official state media for a secessionist republic of one


Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 15 years ago, in 2009, on the World Wide Web.


The plan was to post an ad here this afternoon, but it turns out that I need some information urgently between now and this evening. I’ll be scanning Google News and blogs and so on, but if I can get it, insider or at least activist perspective is more important. Has anyone heard anything about, or yourself been involved in local discussions about, local groups debating or deciding to cancel their planned May Day immigration freedom marches because of the swine flu outbreak, or the panic about it, or the racist-ass exploitation of that panic, etc.?

If so, any information, thoughts, comments, etc. on the topic would be much appreciated and very helpful for some hard discussions we are probably going to have to have in the near future. Doesn’t matter how slim or not-yet-fully-informed or tentative it may be — anything and everything you’ve heard or thought or talked about could potentially be useful. If there’s anything sensitive involving local organizing that you’re O.K. sharing with me but don’t want to share with the world, contact me privately.


Update: I heard this evening that organizers in Chicago and Los Angeles have decided to proceed with the marches as planned. As for Vegas, it’s on, baby. More in the morning.

    Hope you got my email — not sure if the ad is related or not.

    Oops…that’s just general May Day stuff. I haven’t heard anything about local groups, but that may be a place to find contact information for them.
