A Yale history professor's 20-point guide to defending democracy under a Trump presidency — Quartz
Good advice -- let's hope it doesn't come to this. Example:

'17. Watch out for the paramilitaries: When the men with guns who have always claimed to be against the system start wearing uniforms and marching around with torches and pictures of a Leader, the end is nigh. When the pro-Leader paramilitary and the official police and military intermingle, the game is over.'

Capabilities of Movements and Affordances of Digital Media: Paradoxes of Empowerment | DMLcentral
Paradoxically, it’s possible that the widespread use of digital tools facilitates capabilities in some domains, such as organization, logistics, and publicity, while simultaneously engendering hindrances to [political] movement impacts on other domains, including those related to policy and electoral spheres.

DRI needs your help
Appalled by mass surveillance scandals? So are we. We’re doing something about it – and you can too.

In 2006 we started a case challenging Irish and European laws that require your mobile phone company and ISP to monitor your location, your calls, your texts and your emails and to store that information for up to two years. That case has now made it to the European Court of Justice and will be heard on July 9th. If we are successful, it will strike down these laws for all of Europe and will declare illegal this type of mass surveillance of the entire population.

Here’s where you come in. You can take part by: making a donation to help us pay for the expenses we incur; following our updates and keeping abreast of the issues; spreading the word on social media.

With your help, we can strike a blow for the privacy of all citizens.

Blog shines spotlight on Dublin city’s illegal dumping problem
Hooray, Eoin's activism gets some coverage!
THE SCALE OF Dublin’s dumping problem is laid bare in a blog that has seen contributors send in photos of chairs, fridges and heaps of rubbish strewn on city streets. Eoin Parker, one of organisers behind DublinLitterBlog.com, spoke to TheJournal.ie about the problem, saying that the blog was set up following the privatisation of waste management by Dublin City Council in 2012.
