A Nigerian politician brought out a gun and fired at protesters. If you didn’t see the video below, you wouldn’t believe it. t.co/7BvZ9WcvcE

Let’s get our language right, folks. Nigeria did not fail the dead. The Nigerian government murdered them.

My father, @MelBrooks@twitter.com, is 94. He has never made a political video. Until now.

As in previous cases documented by Amnesty International, some of those killed and injured at both grounds were allegedly taken away by the military.

These shootings clearly amount to extrajudicial executions. There must be an immediate investigation and suspected perpetrators must be held accountable through fair trials. Authorities must ensure access to justice and effective remedies for the victims and their families.

He tweeted this 3hours ago.
He’s dead now.

Nigeria indeed ended him.
My eyes are dry from too much tears.

This is not the 80s. This is not the 90s. We have social media now. Everything you do, someone will see. And if one person sees it, we will all see it.

:mastodon: & the Fediverse, please boost!

Situation is tense now in . Please help Ruth.

==========================

OK, this is something I've never done, but have no choice: I need to help a very good friend of mine, Ruth, in Nigeria (I live in Benin), but I can't at the moment. (and no she's not a scammer!) (and yes there are protests at the moment fighting against police brutality see hashtag on various networks)

Ruth needs 250€/270$ to be able to pay her rent for 1 year.
She has a job, but due to Covid, her company just pays half the salary because she works at home! (I know, I know...) :thinkingcat:

Her side gig (selling clothes) didn't work that well either due to confinement and so on, but at least she managed to get half the amount, and is looking for the other half before November 1st.
I helped her as much as I could since April, for food, health and to get a passport so that she can move away if she wants. But I don't have any € anymore in France and not enough at the moment to send from where I live (struggling too...).
:ablobcatcry:
I built her an eshop to help sell in her country :
rootzcloset.shop/

Any amount will help her feel better, as she's really anxious: if she loses her place, she might probably lose her job too and so on...

It's not easy to send her money, but I managed to create a Payoneer account or I can get the money on my accound in France and send it back to her in 2/3 days. DM me for details.

Thank You for any help You can provide.

Mastodon.host

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
