readme: in the event that i favorited your toot and/or made a mistake 

i'm a birdsite immigrant (december last year) and i use the star button quite a lot
if i favorite one of your toots and it's about something negative, i don't mean it as an endorsement of your suffering

furthermore, if i ever post something that makes you / would make someone uncomfortable, please tell me!
this applies for cw's and sensitive words / topics too, i try to be mindful but if i fuck up i'm happier knowing so i can do something about it

On May 28, 2013, a small group of environmentalists, anarchists, and other activists occupied Gezi Park, one of the last green spaces in Istanbul, Turkey. In doing so, they were opposing the model of development that was being aggressively pushed by the neoliberal, socially conservative AKP (Justice and Development) Party under Prime Minister Erdoğan. When police brutally evicted the occupation on May 31, rioting followed. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets, occupying nearby Taksim Square, an important location in the history of anti-capitalist struggles in Turkey. They defended the square with barricades, fighting against police tooth and nail, using rocks and molotovs, facing rubber bullets, water cannons, and tear gas. Protests, occupations, and riots spread to most cities throughout Turkey. Fighting lasted through the first half of June, with several people killed and thousands injured. Anti-capitalist political parties, anarchists, Kurdish nationalists, football hooligans, and residents of working-class neighborhoods all participated.

You can read more about how this beautiful expression of rage played out in our book The Failure of Nonviolence by Peter Gelderloos.

Does anyone know a good resource for learning C++? A book or something freely available online, preferably. I don't want to just search "learn C++" because I suspect most results would be, shall we say, pedagogically lacking.

Hey everyone, sorry to ask this again, but my living situation has gotten more abusive & dangerous recently, so I'd appreciate it if y'all could give a poor nonbinary transfem punk some financial aid:

request for android app recommendations, :boost_ok:​ 

hi, i'm looking to replace my system apps on a whim with more private/less slow stuff!
what are y'alls best picks for apps that do these things:

-photos/gallery
-camera
-calendar
-contacts/address book
-weather
-maps
-messages (sms/mms/etc.)
-phone dial?

i really prefer apps with [imo] pretty ui - the general vibe of like, android 12 or gtk4 linux apps - but if nothing that looks that good is out there for x or y specific niche i might settle for Usable

Each time I launch GIMP, it lists the default installed plugins on the splash, it idles at a plugin called "web browser" the longest, I'm a bit confused as to why the image processor must include a web browser..?
