Cause we're all in this together / Re: Come to our Farewell Party!

I'm very sad to see this, though I did see it coming, as almost every time I dropped by (often) there was no new activity. Sadly, pretty much only when one of our old friends died.

I don't feel safe on Facebook, though probably there are ways of having an account under a pseudo. I am on LinkedIn as traduction lagatta, but it is basically to look for contracts. Things are very difficult these days.

I was a latecomer and, although I bailed for social media, do appreciate the community that formed here. The way we all came together when Croggie left us. How bereft we were without skdadl. Losing Tony, although I confess that was more Facebook than B&R. I had a few personal falling outs with some of the former regulars but I also made real life friends with others.

B&R had a great run. Thank you Debra.  :applause

Well, it may not be realistic, I guess we shall see if anyone gathers on the 13th.

Of course donations to the   :cat kitty are always appreciated.. In this case though I mean a sustaining community as in a participating community.


There is, as you know, a certain amount of background work that needs doing on a regular basis such as keeping the board updated, dealing with spam etc.  and it doesn't seem worth keeping doing just to keep the board as placeholder.


I just deleted all the signups in preparation for taking down the board. The ones I checked were all spam so I just figured they all were. So if I deleted anyone you sent over I apologize.

Well I guess I need to know what u mean Debra, by a community to sustain it. Does that mean regular postings, w/ new members? I have already given the link to only 2 who I think would benefit so much from our community. FB where it is the place to go for organizing is woefully unproductive. We are not just organizers, we are people going thru a very difficult & trying time in our country's history. I don't need to say Economy and can't afford the groceries, or seniors selling their gold rings to sustain the other, or privileged legislation that leaves so many out, do I? Or Security Gone 5-Eyes. The hardships & chicanery has us bested right now, but I see a different future for all. And we need a place to discuss. Do we need $cash to sustain BnR? If so, we need to know.

I would be open to keeping the board open if there was a community to sustain it.  :welcome

I want the board to live on. I've met so many new ndp young friends/supporters and I think they would love a place to hang. But very select invitations of course. I'm adding - I have met some very young/middle age NDP supporters obviously because of the upcoming election. (altho personally it is 2019 I'm looking forward to) who want a place, nay need, a place to discuss/debate/share. They feel quite unnatural to be on FB. If I could get say 5 to join and someone else could get 5 of their friends to join, is there any chance we could save Bread n Roses? If not, I totally understand, our history is so darn special. But perhaps we also need to discuss/debate of what's happening to us individually and to our country, it's the next 4 years when we make it or break it.

 :crying Everything Toe said and then some. I will probably try to make time to save a few of my favourite conversations and many touching tributes to lost friends over the years - so many threads scattered throughout these boards that the I don't even know where to begin.

Thank you, Debra for starting and maintaining this community for so many years. So many lessons learned and friendships made - something that none of the other boards could ever rival.

There won't be a cache per se but I will probably hold on to the database for awhile.


It was such a hard decision because so much info and posts of love & support and the voices of those we have lost will be lost as well. 


I am also removing the Front Page and  Birthpangs.
