Citizens take our citizenship for granted. It’s something most of us
never worry about or think about, and the majority of us have never
experienced life without it. As a consequence, we are incredibly out of
touch with what privileges come with citizenship and what our impact as
citizens can have on our undocumented friends and neighbors.
we are serious about defending DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood
Arrivals) , organizing against ICE raids and detention centers, and
exploring other ways to exercise allyship with undocumented folks, there are precautions we must take.
against deportations and the forces that carry them out is not like campaigning for a candidate, an initiative, or other causes we may all
have experiences with- the risk is much higher. While organizing efforts
may very well include politicians and initiatives, the nature of the
work means that if we are not careful, we can literally get our
colleagues, friends, and their families locked up or deported.
should not consider the following list legal advice nor an exhaustive
list of precautions to take. If there are undocumented people in your
lives or on your campaigns, someone should be reaching out to get
familiar with their personal boundaries, risk levels, and safety plans.
[Bullet points from the list]:
1. Don’t “out” people who are undocumented.
2. Don’t “out” areas where undocumented people live.
prioritize appearing as though you are “centering those most affected”
above not getting those “most affected” deported.
4. Don’t list build if you don’t have to.
5. Protect your lists as if your own deportation depended on it.
6. Don’t put YOUR OWN name on lists.
7. Some things you can do on your own, in secret- and you should.
8. Understand that Homeland Security, ICE, and other federal agencies are not like your local police department.
9. Stop fucking inviting your undocumented friends to the detention center.
10. Do not
communicate about sensitive issues around documentation, immigration,
etc on phones or digital devices, let alone the internet.
11. This includes your encrypted apps like Signal.
12. This includes your email servers like RiseUp.Net.
13. This includes Slack.
14. I DON’T CARE WHAT YOUR CODER OR ANARCHIST FRIENDS SAID. DON’T TALK ABOUT SENSITIVE SHIT ON THE INTERNET.
15. Do not spread information that you are not COMPLETELY SURE is accurate and verified.
16. Do not post media of undocumented people on social media. Only videotape what is necessary and destroy what isn’t needed.
17. Take the time to understand all the risk undocumented people face and how they are treated differently in the legal system.
18. Don’t ask undocumented people to take coordinated arrests.
Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide that sublimates at −78.5 °C (−109.3 °F) at atmospheric pressure. This extreme cold makes the solid dangerous to handle without protection due to burns caused by freezing (frostbite).
If a fast or quite exothermic reaction is being performed, the really low temperature often helps a lot. It prevents runaway of the reaction and keeps chemistry in the flask. In my case a fluorinated compound was reduced with a complex metal hydride. At room temperature the reduction happens and gives a side product, if it’s cooled with ice or salt-ice bath a maximum 40% yield could be achieved, but if it’s being performed a -78 °C up to 90% product could be isolated on a 200 g scale.
This blog is created and managed by a community of artists and writers from the badly drawn/ask Yuri!!! on Ice fandom. We’ve banded together to take commissions to help raise money and awareness for various causes. The charities that we will be donating to are Planned Parenthood, Flint, Standing Rock, the Trevor Project, and United Muslim Relief. We have no plans to add any more for now as to maximize the amount we donate to each of them.
How can we commission a piece?
You may contact any of the artists at firstname.lastname@example.org. When you commission anything, please put thename of the artist/writer in the subject. In the body of the email, please detail what you would like and what charity you would like your money to go to from our list of charities–or, we can choose one for you. You can find a list of who you can commission and their prices/what they are willing to draw here. Keep in mind that many of us have busy schedules so make sure that their commissions are open before you email us. After we work out the details and the artist agrees to take on the project, we will request that you donate the money and show us a receipt confirming the transaction. Once that’s done, they will begin working on your commission!
How can I be sure this is going to charity?
Rather than donating the money through us like we originally planned, we will instead have people who want to commission us to donate the required amount directly to an organization from our list! That way, you will be the ones making sure it gets to its destination!
One last thing
If you are interested in being a part of this project, and would like to participate in Muns for Charity, we encourage you to message us, and we will send you an invite to our Discord chat where we discuss information about the project.
Those who had followed Katsuki Yuuri’s skating career knew his personal life had been plagued by tragedy, the exact details of which had remained a mystery until the very end. Now, in a never before seen anthology, his first ever great misfortune and the lives of those who had been beside him have finally been revealed, and it is now clear why he refused to speak of the night that took the world from him.
Honestly, Yuuri hadn’t planned on it. He meant it when he said that he wants Viktor to stay with him until he retires. But Viktor had to go ahead and say that it sounded like a marriage proposal and that he never wants Yuuri to retire.
Yuuri studies the man with silver hair and unbelievably blue eyes, and says, “Are you real, then?”
“I believe I should be asking you that.” The man stares back at Yuuri with a mix of shock and awe, as if he were gazing upon a miracle. Under the intensity, the tips of Yuuri’s ears flush red. It’s not that he’s unaccustomed by hero worship. Plenty of people have called Yuuri their idol before, but this is different. He doesn’t know how yet, but it’s different.
“What’s your name?”
(In which Yuuri Katsuki is a hero in a shounen manga, Viktor Nikiforov is a figure skating legend who has always been in love with a fictional character, and somehow the two manage to meet across universes.)
When you think of Gryffindor, think of climbing up a tree and dirty shoes and tousled hair. Think of the vivid wind and the loud roar of the ocean when the waves break against the cliffs. Think of playing air guitar and rocking along with the beat of the music. Think of laying down backwards with a sigh and standing up in the next second. Think of people handing over their jacket because someone else is cold. Think of the feeling of freedom and eternity flooding through your veins.
When you think of Ravenclaw, think of small doodlings in the edges of school books. Think of sleepy eyes in the morning because you stayed up too late. Think of clouds passing by your window and the sky a beautiful mixture of white, blue and grey. Think of paper rustling when a page is turned and favorite passages underlined and comments in favorite books. Think of the slight ache in your hands because you’ve been typing or writing for so long, and stretching after sitting a long time. Think of paint on a table and paint on pieces of clothing. Think of the dreamer’s look profound eyes hold.
When you think of Hufflepuff, think of bright smiles and embracing hugs. Think of eating strawberries laying on your back in a field with your best friend, talking and laughing. Think of hugging someone from behind and covering their eyes, chirping “who is this who is this”. Think of counting on dandelions and putting flowers in your pockets to find them in the evening. Think of the faint smile on a face when no words are needed to tell the story.
When you think of Slytherin, think of sharing the deepest secrets at night. Think of perfectly clean mirrors and organized desks. Think of ice cold water gliding down your throat. Think of taking a deep breath and exhaling slowly. Think of the glint in an eye when someone knows something others don’t and the grin on their lips. Think of secret glances shared with people and then gazing down. Think of lips pressed together to not say what they thought.
