Jubilant Watercooler


Hi, y’all.

Here’s the People’s Bailout Telethon, the kickoff to the Rolling Jubilee. John Washington gave us a great introduction to the action earlier today. Enough money to forgive almost 5 million dollars in debt has been raised already as of this writing. You can follow livetweets at #RollingJubilee and #PeoplesBailout.

Coming soon I’ll have more about the Gulf Port 7 trial, and an update on the Keystone XL pipeline protests — 4 arrests at a New Orleans protest today including Twitter journalist @Small_Affair.

This is the latest open thread. What’s on your mind?
