"When we make the choice to spend our hard-earned dollars on goods that are grown, made and traded fairly, ethically, and justly, we are living out our Eucharistic faith in another very important way—such choices preach and practice the dignity of every human being, and help us to participate in Christ’s work of justice for the poor and vulnerable." - @audreyassad . . .
These words are from Audrey's moving reflection about ethical purchasing and how such choices are part of our lives as Eucharistic people.

May Day 2017 #workersrights #resist

Towards the end of the 19th century, Walter Crane, a socialist and illustrator of children's stories, embarked on an annual project to produce illustrations celebrating May Day for the socialist magazine The Clarion. As a member of the Arts and Crafts movement, Crane was in favour of social reform at the same time as condemning the dehumanising effects of industry. In his illustration for May Day 1895, Crane includes slogans that underline this philosophy: "the land for the people", "no child toilers", "production for use not for profit", "the plough is a better backbone than the factory", "shorten working day and lengthen life" etc.

The unfortunately soon to be closed Cadbury factory. The street smelt amazing like a enormous hot chocolate had just been poured. Real shame it's closing been a part of Dunedin since the 19th century #dunedin #chocolate #cadbury #workersrights #hotchocolate

#latergram of #phillyischarlottesville March and Rally. At the rally, a speaker received a standing ovation for pointing out that if you claim to stand with people under attack, but you aren't close enough for the stones being lobbed at them --by bigots-- to hit you, you need to *get closer.* I'm encouraged when I march with allies of all backgrounds: together, we can learn and participate in calls to action to dismantle white supremacy. To all my fellow resisters: Keep it up. Keep pushing. I see you. I love you. I appreciate you. PS - serial activists eat cake, too. Self-care and activism are not mutually exclusive. ✌🏼#accountability #solidarity #caring #noNazis #noKKK #resist #blacklivesmatter #DefendDACA #DREAMers #NoRAISEAct #fightantiSemitism #endIslamophobia #nobannowallnoraids #loveislove #transrightsarehumanrights #smashthepatriarchy #workersrights #fightfor15 #disabilityrights #inclusionrevolution

Ok well here goes.... at work I use to pump in the bedrooms that weren't occupied at the moment, (I'm a caregiver at a health care center for the elderly), then after some time there were no rooms available so I decided to pump in our breakroom... all of our nurses are women at the moment so they all understand and give me my privacy, now I don't care what anybody says about me pumping, I wear a cover and the only thing you see and here is my pump. I do close the door just so they know to knock before entering but I do get that one person once in a while who doesn't know (personnel from different agencies) and they become bashful and embarrassed that they walked in. I explain to them that I'm comfortable enough to let whoever be in the room, it's a natural thing. But it made me realize that not all people are comfortable with it. They apologize, shield their eyes, and literally run away. That made me feel awful. Realizing how uncommon breastpumping or feeding is for some people.. and these are people in the medical field. Later they ask questions like why I do it or how long do I plan to continue... but now I see why we need our own private pumping room. I love a good debate on why to breastfeed don't get me wrong so I answer all the questions they throw at me using my knowledge and experience.. but I do sometimes get the shamers.. in which (being at work and I don't want to get fired) I just smile and shake my pumped breast milk in their face and say ,"would you like some fresh organic creamer for your coffee? It's 100% Daisy!" And laugh as they also find some humor in it. Hopefully that helps them to not be so negative. Anyways, to the mom's out there who are in my situation dont give up doing what you have to do, and don't settle.. if you need a private space ask for it.. and know you will have support for it. 10 months going strong for me!! #ipumpedhere #breatpumping #breastfeeding #liquidgold #normalizebreastfeeding #workersrights #womenrights #mothersrights #babiesrights #fontgiveup #breastmilk #knowyourrights #momlife #breastfeedingmom

I am honoured to be contributing to the amazing *Radio Ava – Sex Workers Radio*: Today 4 pm British time, they will play an episode of my radio show News From The Sun, a super interesting interview I did with Peiyu Kuo of the Taiwanese activist group COSWAS (Collective Of Sex Workers And Supporters), conducted in WenMeng House in Taipei in February this year. WenMeng House is a historical heritage site and former municipal brothel that was the nexus of the movement for sex workers rights of the 1990s. Peiyu gives a short history for the Taiwan sex workers rights movement from 1987 to today and illuminates the intersections in the Taiwanese sex workers rights movement. "The live broadcast will feature: the spunky and ruthless Wankers’ Corner; a news round up of the latest sanctioned attacks on sex workers and premises in the UK; a field report from the vigil for Rashan Charles; totally wrong tunes and why we love them; thoughts on google and sex worker gender equality, and another instalment in the Ava’s increasingly inappropriate work playlist.
Tune in today, Friday 18th August @ 4pm on

Hamn4an, the union of dockworkers in Gothenburg are currently on strike to fight the dock-owners total disregard for workers rights. To support the strike, part of the payments for the prints sold on my exhibition will go to Hamn4an. #hamn4an #strike #strejk #solidaritet #solidarity #fack #arbetsrätt #workersrights

Unions have been critical in expanding the rights of workers. Without unions, corporations hold all of the cards, and workers get left behind.
