It’s really uncomfortable watching characters with no chemistry get it on :/
Bunny falls asleep
bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you
A group of classmates and I are trying to attend the five day World Indigenous People’s Conference on Education in Hawaii which is coming up in May. This indiegogo was created in order to help fund the trip for folks who aren’t able to afford the steep costs of the registration, flight, and board. If possible, a donation would be incredible (any amount counts) and/or spreading the word across other social media venues for more visibility!
Blurb from the Indiegogo
"Hello! We are a diverse group of students from Western Washington University (located in Bellingham, WA) dedicated to educational equity and taking the actions necessary to make traditional classroom spaces and alternative learning venues enriching for children and adults. Many of us are majoring in human services, education (at the k-12 level and beyond), American Cultural Studies, psychology, and/or are budding grassroots organizers. The common thread guiding us all, is our desire to help people in varied ways and build greater awareness about experiences people from different walks of life and communities may be navigating.
Our class set up this campaign in order to help fund our participation at the World Indigenous People’s Conference on Education in Hawaii. This five day conference is renowned for its ability to enrich and expand people’s ideas about what education can look like and how to better ignite excitement about learning. We are absolutely invested in gaining more effective ways of teaching and learning. As well as unlearning some of the dynamics we have experienced in the classroom. Such as the teacher as the sole holder of knowledge. We believe that learning should be a communal endeavor where the teacher is learning alongside students and students are teaching alongside their teachers.
As students working our way through school, a conference and trip of this magnitude with such a short time left, would not be achievable without the generous contributions of interested donors. We are ecstatic about this opportunity as well as the possibility that there are people out there willing to help. So we would like to thank you in advance for your kindness.”
Please please share, reblog, tweet, spread the word in anyway possible!
We only have 14 days left and we’re at $650 of our $20,000 goal. Every dollar helps! If we can get someone a fluffy chicken, we can get us to this conference!
We’re up to 760 y’all! <3
Also, we’re totally interested in frequent flier miles! Just contact me and we can work out how to do this!
We have reached $800 and only have five days remaining! Please signal boost, every dollar counts!
Sakuma Brothers Berry Farms has submitted an H2A application for over 400 guestworkers. If approved this would displace farmworkers and their families.
Here’s a sample of what you can call in and say:
Hello my name is ______ and I am calling to insist that the Sakuma Brothers Berry Farm application for H2A guestworkers is denied. This application must be denied as there is no labor shortage and an ongoing labor dispute.
I am asking that you uphold the rights of the workers and deny this application that would displace hundreds of workers and their families. Respect the 450 farmworkers who are willing and able to work, deny Sakuma’s H2A application!
We have 5 days to stop the H2A application and displacement hundreds of farmworkers and their families. Call now!

Saturday, April 12, 2014- 20+ students from the group WWU Students for Farm Worker Justice came out to La Conner, WA for the annual Tulip Parade carrying signs that read “Farm Workers First,” “Boycott Sakuma,” and “Sakuma Steals Wages.” Their shirts, emblazoned with “Familas Unidas por la Justicia” showed that they were acting in solidarity with the local farm worker group comprised of over 300 primarily indigenous laborers.
The workers from Familias Unidas have been on a year long strike protesting wage theft, dismal wages, racist working environments, and Sakuma Bros. Berry Farms’ move to hire H2A guest workers to replace the existing workforce. They are fighting for a union contract guaranteeing them better wages, no retaliation for the strike, as well as not replacing them with guest workers.
The students began the parade with the seemingly benign stance of just supporting local farm workers, but as they hit the main strip of the parade, they unrolled large banners proclaiming their boycott of Sakuma Bros. Berry Farms. Their chants included, “HEY SAKUMA, why won’t you sign a contract?”, “Familias unidas jamas ceran vencidas/ Families united, will never be divided,” “Boycott Sakuma! Exploitation!”

Act in solidaridad with Familias Unidas por la Justicia!
Saturday March 29th, several representatives from Familias Unidas por la Justicia (Familias United for justice) with 20+ Western Washington University students (WWU Students for Farm worker Justice) standing in solidarity, picketed outside of The Food Pavilion in Lynden, Washington. They were there protesting the presence of Sakuma Bros. Berry Farms products on the shelves, as well as Haagen Dazs who uses the farm’s berries for their strawberry flavor ice cream.
The workers from Familias Unidas have been on a year long strike protesting wage theft, dismal wages, racist working environments, and Sakuma Bros. Berry Farms’ move to hire H2A guest workers to replace the existing workforce. They are fighting for a union contract guaranteeing them better wages, no retaliation for the strike, as well as not replacing them with guest workers. According to the law, the farm CANNOT hire guest workers during a strike, though they continue to push the application.
We are reaching out to you all to help spread the word and join in the boycotting of Sakuma Bros. Berry Farms products until the workers have gained a binding contract guaranteeing just working conditions.

The comments are the fucking worst though (i know i know don’t read the comments), just hella racists who’ve done no research. Like damn, I don’t always agree with the uni president…but I sure as hell know he’s not trying to get rid of white students. Like what purpose would that serve when they’re nearly 80% of the population???????? smh
