I am an Acadian settler/ Metis visitor from Winnipeg under duress in Lkwungen Territory

Sorry to have to write such a blog but, as gross as it is, it must be done:

HEADS UP FRIENDS and FAMILY:

I need help to go thru my blog posts since Super InTent City formed and help TAKE OUT AND DELETE any photo’s you all might have passed on to me which are James Carmichael’s from FACEBOOK and other social media sources, back when Super InTent City was in the “honeymoon phase” and James Carmichael was sharing his photo’s.  He is making malicious mean spirited complaints against my blog thus the work I have done for years in social justice, I post them below for you all to see.

The first thing I thought when I got the first complaint 12 days ago, right in the middle of the battle at SIC and residents were really struggling, was “why did he not just ask me to take them down?”  (I want to add that I also thought “what kind of person who is supposed to be about “love” attacks a transform homelessness advocacy watch blog that is NOT about capital or private ownership as I am an anarchist) I would have done so no problem.(taken photo’s down if he’d asked me)  These blog post’s have always have been about Advocacy Watch for homeless and each other, to watch each others backs and build community with strong security culture which was beaten out of us by this very colonial system we all hold up and many of us envision changing healing economies which have first nations and indigenous leading in all of our homelands.

The goal for this blog was always about helping end poverty thru use of a Livable4All Income and Build Homes Now with Unions taking this on as the New Minimum Wage:

furthering the rights of the ever growing and suffering homeless  while fighting against growing hate and stigma alongside them; creating and building community  and to do so keeping in mind and following anti oppression 101 standards with a participatory research model in mind for those who are academically inclined, not to mention my own strong values and boundaries around equity, power and lived experience homeless, especially those who are criminilized. (is that a sentence?)

If you know James Carmichael, the housed fellow who is one of many supporters down at Super InTent City, can you PLEASE help me insure NONE of his photo’s are in my blog post’s?  Help me identify them so I can delete them all?  Thanks.  I am going thru today, however, with my fibromyalgia its tough so, any help is appreciated.  I also appreciate it if anyone can come to me and speak up for this man, anyone?  Makes me wonder who he is after this?

He has now made three complaints against my THAW blog trying to say I used his photo’s without permission.  They were shared on facebook back when everyone was all happy and in the “honeymoon phase”, like here when James asked me for a hug after a meeting:

InTentLinzy4

He is new to my community and I been out here for 20 years since before my daughter was born.  

So, here are his complaints MINUS his private phone number and road he lives on:

black and white image of tent city community member with head tilted, flipping the bird. table in front of him is full of items: knives, yogurt, an orange, duct tape, mio drops, socks, ensure, etc.

my watermark can be found on the folded knife near the center of the image.

not only was this image used without my permission, its non consensual use has angered the subject in the image who strictly limits his online photographic exposure. use of this image without the subject’s express permission may put him at risk: remove it immediately. i was given permission for it’s use, the blog owner was not.
