The way XR does it is definitely much more symbolic action than direct action, bro. Not that there's not a place for symbolic action but come on not at the expense of getting hundreds of activist thrown in jail with little to know structures of dealing with them after they're imprisoned.
@EarthStrikeInt maybe. i was not there.
In terms of imprisonned people, no one has been sent to jail to serve time as far as I know.
There is a structure in place for arestee support were people wait outside police station with food, a hug and maybe time to get a coffee.
This is both happening at centralised and affinity group level
We also provided arestee with burner phones, bust cards with instruction and have a system for what to do with their belongings when they get arested.
We all have each other emergency number to call in our affinity group in case somthing happens to us.
@flo Yeah but I doubt that speaks to XR as a whole
One of the first Mastodon instances, there is no specific topic we're into, just enjoy your time!
