How is it possible that so view people engage around the topic crisis in catalonia?

#Diaspora, #friendica, #gnusocial, #mastodon, #hubzilla....etc. I view as being very #progressive social networks. I love to use them, and I enjoy the conversations I have through them.

But yet still I feel being very dependend on #twitter and such. There is just so little engagment happening about the struggle in #catalonia.

I'm not only sad about, I also believe this is one of the arguments hindering others to use them as their main social network. That's limiting very much the potential the federated networks could have.

On the other hand it could also help to counter the upcomming violence and opression through the spanish state.
We have seen what it means for them to use adequate use of force on #1Oct.
#EU, #NATO and #US are explicitly supporting this. And yet, we're just a view steps away from a new #civilwar within #Europe

With our silence we're legitimating this process.

And shure I know there are just so many struggles and it's hard to engage in all.
But what we always can do is tryn to create connections between the different struggles, and helping to bring them into the spotlight through collective "story telling".

Cause most have much in common. Opressing parts of the society in oder to gain or hold on to the own power and control.

Happening everywhere, all the time.
It's up to us breaking it.

Meanwhile people are inside the EU opressed, leaders are about to finance the building of #hotspots all around Europe and in #Europe, incl. the biggest controled border system of the world.
Abuse is routine daylive in a couple of those hotspots. And we have seen what happend in the past in all europe within the concept of concentration camps. The situation today has many similarities. We have a populist right wing growing all over europe.
We have autonom far-right activism growing...and we see the leading parties of centrism shifting more and more direction right.

We need solidary and horizontal organisation of our society. This is will sustainably counter right wing populism.
Some of those efforts are happening right now in #catalonia. It is true that the leading party under #Puigdemont has a right-wing orientation, but yet much of the struggle is organized through neighbarhood assemblies, which are out of the control of the bourgeois.

With our silence this time window will close for the next years ending in constant violent opression.

NATO, EU and US are already being commited to the side of violence.
What side will you chose? #Diaspora
