Fellow Transhumans. I dunno how many of you actually have your Muses set to filter bad news, so I thought I'd play with the tags on this post in the hopes of actually getting some of you to goddamn listen for a change. Two days ago, a small family of uplifts were kicked out of their habitat in Elysium because the local government had decided to "Rezone" the area. They weren't related, but they had been together since almost immediately after the fall, and finding a new habitat to accommodate their natural bodies would have been prohibitively expensive. When they refused, they were shot, and killed. Without being able to afford new bodies, they were put into cold storage for who knows how long. You can donate for the crowdfunding of new bodies, but I think we should do more than that. Didn't make most newsfeeds because this kinda thing is so common that most people find it easier to just ignore. I've been in touch with the local TSI rep, and even a couple of Anarchist groups. If you're interested in getting involved, or you have your own example of human oppression, post it here.
