On the 5th of September, the DropKiwiFarms campaign announced victory! The anti-LGBTQ/anti-neurodivergent doxxing and hate site kiwifarms(dot)net had just been booted off Cloudflare for "imminent threat to human life," and less than 24 hours later their backup Russian DDOS protection (DDOSguard) also booted them.

Capitol Pride Reportback

On the 11th of June, the Capitol Pride march returned to DC, this time marching to the streets next to P st Beach rather than starting there. At Dupont Circle, the same "ex-Gay and "Ex-trans" fundamentalist Christians who harassed the parade last year were back, again hiding behind the cops. In a longstanding pattern, there were way too many corporate floats in the parade, though also some explicitly political contingents. At one point, PSL's contingent chanted "you say Stonewall, we say riot!" This is a reminder to the growing theocratic menace in the US that many will not peacefully submit to any recriminalization of GLBTQ lives.

Video: Clarendon Cup bicycle race returns to N Va

On the 5th of June, Pro and Cat 1 (top amateur) bike racing again came to Claredon, VA. The race, known also as the Armed Forces Cycling Classic, has Boeing as the top sponsor. This is interesting given that bicycles are known for not using fossil fuels and Boeing's products both military and commerical are some of the biggest fuel users on Earth.

GOP Capitol Hill Club gets anticapitalist carolers

On the 10th of December, Extinction Rebellion DC showed up outside the GOP-dominated Capitol Hill Club for a round of anticapitalist caroling. There was little response from the GOP'ers inside except for one who yelled that Trump would be back in 2024. That drew a response that Trump belongs in prison from one person.
