“we live in time where calling a person who is literally being racist, a racist, is somehow more offensive than the actual racism and the BBC keeps insisting on equating the two as if they are somehow even close to the same thing...”

“Pia Klemp, the German ship captain who rescued migrants in the Mediterranean, as she refuses a medal from the mayor of Paris.”

“I’m not a humanitarian. I am not there to ‘aid’. I stand in solidarity. We do not need medals. We do not need authorities deciding who is a ‘hero’ and who is ‘illegal’. In fact they are in no position to make this call, because we are all equal.

“What we need are freedom and rights. It is time we call out hypocrite honouring and fill the void with social justice. It is time we cast all medals into spearheads of revolution!

“Documents and housing for all!

“Freedom of movement and residence!”

Pia Klemp, August 2019

““I work on infrastructure” - boring - nerdy - people will ask you for tech help “I am a devotee of the Machine God” - powerful - people will assume you have ACTUALLY lost your marbles - or even better, they’ll know it was a 40k reference, and avoid you altogether”
