Young British Muslims tell the Islamic State: #NotInMyName

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State. 

As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion. 

So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”

All good things come to an end - HASA closing

In case you or someone you know posts (or used to post) on Henneth Annûn Story Archive: you have until December 31 to repost your stories somewhere else.

The Silmarillion Writers’ Guild has the Library of Tirion project, and Dawn has more information about ways to save your stories in the SWG’s announcement of the closing. (I also have list of Tolkien fanfic archives if you’re looking for other archives.)

Please signal-boost this; the more time people have to repost their fics elsewhere, the more stories can be saved.


Aw, crap. 

Oh no!

I don’t remember my login. I had a lot of stuff in drafts on there. Some of it dates from before I began to organize my stuff on my computer in any way, shape, or form. :/ Oh well. I’ve been meaning to go back through all that stuff anyway. 

Please contact the HASA admins if you are having trouble accessing your account and stories on the site. I am not an admin there, but in my conversations with them over the past week, they have expressed as much sorrow as we’ve seen here that stories will be inevitably lost when they close. They want people to be able to save their work.

The Silmarillion Writers’ Guild, Many Paths to Tread, and Faerie archives are willing to help authors move their stories onto our sites. We can set stories so that they are not publicly visible and bring over comments as well. If you do not have the time to save or move your stories yourself, please let us know, and we can help.






Can’t stop, won’t stop (9.22): Updates from tonight’s town hall are slow coming due to the virtual media black out, but it seems like the name of tonight’s game was “Pass the Buck.” Hard to heal when no one’s willing to take responsibility for their wrongs. #staywoke #farfromover 

okay but how can they even begin to deny having military gear when there are literally hundreds of pictures of cannisters and riot gear???


is this some semantic-based loophole?! 

"Our police department doesn’t use or possess tear gas, rubber bullets, stingers, or any of the items used during protest." 

So are they admitting those items were used during the protests? Or are they saying “we don’t use them during protests [but we didn’t consider those times protests]” 

Like what in the holy fuck is happening? 

What, indeed. :|

HAPPENING NOW (9.26.14): And in an instance, mayhem. The police attacked protesters without warning or clear provocation, mind you, WHILE the police chief was out chatting/marching with them. More to come tonight. Stay woke. #farfromover (PT I)
