you can cite the deep magic to me if you want. i was there when it was written but I like hearing it from someone else's perspective. it's pretty cool that you're a witch, too.

Project 2025 will have extensive impacts on lands, waters, wildlife and tribes in the West.

In fact, the entire energy section was written by Kathleen Sgamma, of oil and gas industry group Western Energy Alliance.

Here are some highlights:

-Expanding oil and gas extraction onshore and off
-Delisting grizzlies, wolves
-Un-protecting wetlands from farmers
-Increasing timber sales on public lands
-Moving the BLM (again) and the American Indian office to the West

the only voice on it at the moment is my own, but the memorial is designed to receive contributions from the world

https://contribute.gaza.memorial/

the idea is to record the names of the dead of gaza in all the voices and accents of the world. a small gesture of global solidarity with the oppressed in the face of zionism and the attempted erasure of Palestine.

if you feel moved to participate, the memorial will be more complete with your voice, and i would appreciate it greatly.

since november ive been putting together a memorial to the martyrs of gaza. it is complete enough that i am sharing it with the world this afternoon. boosts welcome.

https://gaza.memorial/

it is a simple list of the names of the dead read aloud, bearing witness to their loss, acknowledging each one of them as a complete human being, a story cut short by ethnonationalist projects and empire, someone who deserved more.
