The walk

Chris (link to your data trafficking corporation) takes the dog out twice a day, in the morning to the mountain and in the afternoon to the river. He is a big dog; when adopting him people who seem to be very expert observed that he wouldn’t need less than two hours a day of walking, making him run – throwing some lure to make him run to get it, for example.

The river walk is a bit more populated, although I never usually see, when I go, more than one or two people running, or walking. Going up the mountain in this valley is not like walking in the middle of nature; it is not a pleasant place to walk. The path Chris uses to walk the dog has been traced by tractors carrying their heavy machinery in order to process plot by plot the industrial production of commercial crops. In this production model, trees, especially those that cast their shade on a cultivated plot, are uprooted. Those that cast their shadow on the road can be left alive; in the two-hour walk we took a few months ago we counted seven trees; a few weeks ago there were already six; one of which was fallen, blocking the road. So, unpleasant as it is, we have never met anyone in the mountain. So Chris thought that his solitary walks were not against isolation.

Until today, as he walked at a fast pace, as he does, alone with the dog, he was stopped by a couple of police. “Where do you live?” “You’re too far from home.”

This contradicts what the government says that “the time you can take your dog out is the time you are used to” and what they want is for you to have no contact with other people.

In the meantime the blockade to riseup.net is over. I am communicating this to my ISP, asking the reason for the blocking, which is now over, and I am still waiting for an answer.

For future occasions, https://ooni.org/ asks you to install omniprobe and run an “OMNI Probe” to get a clearer idea of exactly where a page is being blocked, so that you can at least try to find out why.
