Historians: All histories are fiction. Objective truth is illusory. Every narrative is a subjective product of its author and context, with no tangible bearing upon reality.

Historians watching any film remotely connected to their field: Well that never fuckin' happened.

Heartbreaking video of Muslims in Delhi fleeing their homes, carrying their belongings. The Hindutva mob violence has displaced so many in just a matter of days.

Modi & Trump have blood on their hands yet again.

Remember when you go back to work tomorrow: *it is not your job to catch up*

Do a normal 7.5 hour day, at a reasonable pace. Take a lunch break.
Prioritise what you want to & leave the rest. Repeat on Friday.

Take a 2 day weekend. Back to picketing on Monday.

.@easyJet from Lyon to Rome was delayed by two hours. They started to give out vouchers for food, but their own queue was so long they stopped. Then they conceded, but the queue for food was so long, it had to be abandoned. Now I'll be lucky to have dinner before midnight.

So apparently a lot of academics in music depts need to hear this one:

THE. STRIKE. IS. NOT. OVER. JUST. BECAUSE. THE PICKET. IS. CLOSED. FOR. THE. DAY.

Your event that starts in the evening on university grounds is strike breaking.
