Soooo... I guess I am not going for that bike ride today. Or maybe ever? 🐝🤦♀️
I only went about 2 months without riding my bike and these folks moved in!
I've been slowly exposing their nest more and more hoping to persuade them to go find a better one. (That's why I'm now able to take such a close up picture.) But they seem content to stay. 😓

They just name-checked Bayard Rustin! This is really good. I'm kvelling!
I hope this is just the beginning of a new era where companies are expected to care about more than their profits. They are just as responsible as the rest of us for creating the world we live in. At least until the workers truly seize the means of production.

Here's some music to warm up on a dismal day
I also loved how cantpaywontpaydurm.org had their own mini radio station so we could all bump the same tunes and stay connected from our cars. And I super appreciated the bike marshalls for stopping traffic and keeping us safe. (All while looking fantastic 👩🎤🚲.)
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch this live teach-in with the great Angela Davis and Naomi Klein, as well as Durham's own Loan Tran and others. It's one of the few things that has given me hope that it's worth making it through this miserable fucking experience and that we can organize and build a better world.
