"Tell the chef, the beer is on me."
Hi. My name is Kasia Babis. Some time ago my anti-stereotypes poster went viral all around social media. Now I would like to use that attention to build awareness about what is happening right now in Poland.
The Polish parliament has decided to proceed with a bill that directly attacks women by banning abortion with no exceptions, as well as criminalizing both abortion procedures and miscarriages. A wave of protest has broken out in Poland, and is branded with the hashtag #blackprotest (#czarnyprotest) to express our rage and dissent.
This drive to take away fundamental human rights from women will eventually affect all of us in the future if we allow it to spread. Please express your solidarity in any way you can.
Right now, the basic form of protest consists of uploading pictures of yourself wearing black clothes onto social media with the hashtag #blackprotest / #czarnyprotest, which is trending and gaining visibility around the world.
We will be extremely grateful for your help raising international awareness of the situation in Poland by publishing your own expression of dissent on your webpage or social media profile.

Thousands of women and men in Poland are protesting against a proposed anti-abortion law by wearing all black.
The organisers, the Together Party (Partia Razem), explain:
“Over the next three days our parliament will debate the most radical anti-abortion legislation in Polish history. If the draft is passed, Poland will have one of the strictest abortion laws in the world – pregnancy termination will be banned even if it is the result of rape, incest or if the pregnant girl is under 15.
Black is the colour of mourning, of sadness, but also of protest and resistance. By wearing black we show our despair, but also our collective strength and solidarity. We refuse to live with the consequences of this fundamentalist craze.
The numbers are truly amazing, thousands of women and girls have joined us online. Instagram and twitter are full of pictures of girls, sometimes entire school classes dressed in black. We really find it hard to believe we have to protest this in 2016, but there you go. Our struggle will continue for as long as necessary.”
If passed, the new law would treat every mother who miscarried as a potential suspect in a murder case. The current draft would also severely restrict the amount of prenatal tests available through the national health service, making it impossible to test for many life threatening conditions.

please reblog it and help to spread the word about our suffering
Couple new paintings gonna be popping up in the store. Mostly little 4″x6″ gouache experiments.
Also, big apologies to anyone waiting on a reply to a message or email. I’ve kind of been lurching from minor crisis to minor crisis for the past several months – nothing a competent adult shouldn’t be able to handle, but you’d be amazed how old you can get without ever coming close to being a competent adult, haha.
The story starts in 1918 during the Spanish flu epidemic in London. The British capital has become a ghost town because of the disease and the rise of violence. Jonathan Reid, the character you play, is a renowned surgeon who is also a war veteran, the twist being that he was turned into a vampire against his will. The developers want to emphasize the duality of the hero who will be torn apart between his desire to save people and his need for blood. Since drinking blood will be his only way to evolve and gain new skills, he is bound to kill innocent people in the process.

"Basically the price of a night on the town!"
"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
