Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover
Today in Solidarity (9.27.14): The Lost Voices campground since Mike Brown’s murder was ransacked by police… so petty. #staywoke #farfromover
Don’t know who the Lost Voices are yet? They’re the youth brigade on the frontlines of Ferguson, leading the fight for justice for Mike Brown. (Many of those tweets you see on my posts are from LV.) Yesterday, their campsite was raided without notice. These young leaders have been under constant attack from police since protests began, but yesterday was a clear intimidation move. Well guess what— Lost Voices will not be intimidated or stopped. Please make sure you’re showing them your love and support. Consider donating to their efforts today.
When I see shit like I want to know on what grounds the police acted on. Obviously tearing up and ripping up protest signage goes against right to speech and assembly and in general this is oBVIOUS ABUSE OF POWER but I’d love to know what bullshit or not-so-bullshit excuse they might have for it. I’m so frustrated.
what mens rights activists really sound like
mens. rights. activists.
Fuck. Totally crying now.
Somebody posted these all around school, and now I know what it feels like to be proud of ones school.
Just so we’re all clear.
Umm… Don’t they then say, “You’re not yourself when your hungry” ? Doesn’t that indicated that those dudes being respectful are being weird and that they should have a snickers and get back to the status quo?
