In the aftermath of the massacre of Chinese Miners in the CAR in the past week, this new article on a race riot between foreign Chinese and native workers in Indonesia shows something striking
In many of Chinese foreign industrial investments, from Africa to Indonesia, Chinese workers are often brought in to work on these projects, much to the chagrin of native workers
Chinese workers receive marginally better treatment from their employers, although they still overall suffer from the same issues that assail native workers
As a result, this causes conflict between the native and the foreign workers, leading to, well, massacres and race riots
I can’t help but feel this is almost by design, that the companies in charge are fully aware of the conflict between workers this brings, and finds it easier to exploit both sections as a result
A recent report by China Labor Watch, which has conducted conversations with Chinese workers at PT GNI, reveals that SPN’s(Indonesian Labour Union) demands were not circulated among the Chinese at all due to Chinese workers’ inability to access Indonesian writing. This discrepancy allowed GNI’s management to “creat[e] an image of Chinese ‘us’ vs. Indonesian ‘them.’” The report states that under companies such as Jiangsu Delong, Chinese workers in Indonesia also suffer from wage arrears, physical abuses and surveillance, and unreported deaths are commonplace
Definitely seems like it
Luckily, further down in the article, the head of SPN notes the need to recruit Chinese workers into Trade Union struggles, which would be a good development for labour rights in Indonesia

I’m for stricter gun control, protection of voting rights, and prison reform.
Which, by American standards, makes me a liberal.

In all honesty the Bible does contain things little kids shouldn’t be reading about. There are kid friendly abridged versions that are more appropriate for their reading level anyways.

Somehow Omnipresent?

Utah parent petitions government to remove Bible from classrooms for containing sex scenes, sodomy, pedophilia, torture, etc.

“Based on the new Utah law, something is indecent if it includes explicit sexual arousal, stimulation, masturbation, intercourse, sodomy or fondling,” The Tribune’s report stated. “According to state attorneys, material doesn’t have to be ‘taken as a whole’ in those situations or left on the shelf during a review. If there is a scene involving any of those acts, it should be immediately removed.”
Rep. Ken Ivory (R-West Jordan), the chief sponsor of the bill, called the parent’s request another example of “antics that drain school resources.”
Watch as how Utah decides that this one special fantasy novel is exempt.

At this point, “X is woke” is just a codeword for “I’m bigoted against X”.
Never trust someone who uses the term “woke” unironically.

News dump.
Fox News loves their guns. They cannot get enough of their guns. They legit think guns have more of a right being in our schools than our kids do. But the one place they think guns shouldn’t be is in the hands of transpeople.
As is ALWAYS the case, the fastest case to getting gun regulations is for minorities to start packing.
Her clapback was weak but yeah.

Traitors like Qaren continue to bemoan how her people are being treated so terribly for the small act of committing treason. She even organized a tour for Congress to see how terrible these people are being treated.
I spent the last few years cracking that insurrectionists kept getting lighter sentences than people who own an ounce of weed. Turns out, they are also being treated better than free citizens!
Yep. We finally reached the point where having a period is “Woke”.

A thing about Fascists and Bigots in general that I’ve noticed is that they hate fair fights even when it’s against their own kin.
They will do anything to rig a match/battle in their favor or weasel their way out entirely if they can’t.
Cuz 99% of the time all their talk about being “Superior” is really just pure insecurity hiding behind false bravado.

A judge had blocked an abortion ban in Wyoming, citing Wyoming’s constitution that “each competent adult shall have the right to make his or her healthcare decisions.”
The kicker? This amendment was made in 2012 as a spite against Obamacare.
Basically, Republican’s current attempt to make life harder for people has been thwarted by their previous attempt to make life harder for people.
A good use for this meme if I ever saw it:

Banned for the historical figure of a man with an non-erect wiener? How insecure can people get?
Also I’m in florida. I usually don’t protest, I don’t have the money or time, or transportation (that’s how we’re kept down) but banning biology books, womens rights, and trans rights really grinds my gears.
I ain’t too sure where to allocate my time. We make fun of people for only outraging on the internet, but without money time or a vehicle I can’t just pull up to some notable protest site.
Some people like me just need a job, so i can move up and have a bigger impact on society. That’s why I’m not protesting at the moment.

Florida books are being banned and a principal got fired for the David Statue. Utah let’s ban the Bible for it has sex.
Atleast the Mormons are somehow more entertaining.

Let’s be real, the majority of Congresspeople are old people who probably still think the internet is a fad.
Aren’t these the same people who grew up with Elvis and Hippies? Yeah, I think those were fads…

Congress might ban TikTok because it’s afraid the Chinese government might get data on Americans from the app.

King Charles III was supposed to have his first state visit in France this Sunday.
I use the past tense because, due to the current social climate (especially an incident in which the front door of the Bordeaux city hall — where a reception for the king had been planned for Tuesday — got set on fire), that visit just got postponed sine die.
Get fucked, Macron.

That’s how ratios work.
For a random dump of news, DeSantis is now moving to expand his “Don’t Say Gay” bill into all grades. Previously the bill only ranged from kindergarten to 3rd grade, now it’ll go up to 12th grade, basically meaning only college courses are exempt from the bill’s ban on talking about sexual orientations or gender identity. For now.
Because of course, it was never about “protecting kids”.
NSFW warning, I guess, because the top image is a picture of the world’s most famous naked statue.
Not directly related to DeSantis’ Don’t Say Gay, but definitely an adjacent issue on the growing hysteria over any sexual content, perceived or otherwise.
Biden’s been kinda back and forth on labor rights. He’ll give all the cheap platitudes for it, but when it comes to substantial union support that would actually inconvenience corporations he’s been pretty spotty. So yeah more of the same here.
All it took was for perpetual train derailments getting put in the national discourse for it to happen! Norfolk Southern still refuses to budge though.

I just read that and thought to myself that that means that for every 10,000 people, there has been one train derailment since 2001. If everyone in just my county disappeared, then the number would noticabley rise… That’s creepy. It’s bad.
