Banksy's Migrant Rescue Boat: Not Just To Save Their Souls, But Our Own

At least some are using their wealth and their influence to help others. Awesome.


Banksy is one of my favorite people on the planet, not just for his searing satirical artworks but for his selfless consideration of humanity. He should be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize, not a-hole politicians like Obama etc.


There's nothing more dangerous than someone who wants to make the world a better place.

You owe the companies nothing. You especially don't owe them any courtesy. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don't even start asking for theirs.

The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages.

Think outside the box, collapse the box, and take a fucking sharp knife to it.

Thank you CD. This was nice to wake up to.
There apparently is still hope.


Fuck the EU and in particular the NATO member nations who along with other NATO members (Canada and the USA) turned the richest Country in Africa into one of the poorest.

Libya was the destination for many Africans feeling violence in Sub Saharan Africa. During the Qaddaffi years it had one of the largest refugee populations on the planet. France was worried about the Dinar and they all wanted to get their grubby little paws on Libyan oil and water so in the name of “human Rights” and with the help of peoples such as Susan Nossel and the US wing of AI using fake atrocities to justify and intervention, Libya was destroyed.

These people in the rescue boat understand what this all about. Kudos.


If someone knows how to make meaningful contact with the people who run CD, please beg them to do 2 things:

  • Stop making photos jump when scrolled. It’s FINE to have a photo only partly visible for awhile!

  • Stop quoting someone and then repeating the quote as a quote. Once is enough!

(just suggestions from a friendly human-factors expert)


Yes - that jerky scrolling jump when you try to view the full photo at the top of the article is a real f-ing annoyance. It seems to be a bug related to the implementation of donation banner at the top and their IT poeple probably don’t know how to fix it.

You might also add Europe’s refusal to hold Israel accountable for what is essentially a genocidal siege in Gaza and the supposedly illegality under what is supposed to be ‘international law’ of the seizure of Palestinian property in Palestine.


The twitch is apparently being produced by some crappy code they glued in from “shareaholic”. It mis-manages the main image.

speaking truth to power. amen
