Notice something in common in these photos?

It’s not what you think

I gave it away in the third pic

That’s right! None of these cops are wearing badges or name tags! I wonder why… seems like it’d be important to wear those, since it’s even illegal not to in other states…

is this your freedom, is this the freedom you all so blindly take pride in this looks like a fascist state to me

I see people saying “How can this happen? Isn’t this America?”

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.

I don’t think that the Aboriginals in Australia get half as much attention that they deserve! An entire, thriving culture is going unnoticed and it’s important that we appreciate it :)  (source)

Meet Officer Go Fuck Yourself

A police officer in Ferguson pointed his assault rifle at journalists who were streaming the protests, saying “I will fucking kill you”.

When asked his name his reply is “Go fuck yourself”.

Someone has decided this deserves a Twitter account.

Day 4 of Block the Boat for Gaza! Israeli ZIM Ship Blocked & Gone!

August 19, 2014

For four days straight the San Francisco Bay Area community blocked the Israeli ZIM ship from unloading at the Port of Oakland. And today, we salute the rank and file of ILWU for standing with us against Israeli Apartheid by honoring our pickets and letting the ship go from the SSA terminal this afternoon!

Saturday we mobilized thousands of our community to show the world that Oakland does not welcome racism, apartheid or Zionism, from Ferguson to Palestine. We flooded the streets and marched towards the Port only to discover that the ZIM ship decided to stay at Bay rather than dock and be confronted by the power of our numbers. The ship attempted to dock and unload on Sunday, but within a half hour’s time hundreds of us organized community pickets requesting that ILWU to stand with us on the side of justice and not unload the Apartheid ship. And as ILWU always has, and as they did during South African Apartheid, they demonstrated their solidarity with the global fight against oppression and honored our picket. Once again on Monday, and then on Tuesday morning, community pickets coupled with worker solidarity stopped the ZIM ship from unloading.

Today we declare a historic victory for Palestine as Oakland held down the longest ever blockade of an Israeli ship. Not only did we block the boat, but we also showed the world that racist exclusionary state of Apartheid Israel has no place on our port, and will soon find that it has no place on any port on the West Coast.

Oakland feels firsthand the brutality of Israeli war-making. And Palestine knows too well the role the US plays in facilitating the ongoing ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian people. From the policing and militarization of our local communities perfected with Israeli tactics of repression to the billions that the US provides Apartheid Israel, the connections are clear and are made for us. And over the last four days we showed the world that we stand shoulder to shoulder from Palestine to Oakland to Ferguson as we struggle bring down every wall, every apartheid system and every racist state.

Palestine will be free.

Editor’s Note: I personally know people who MADE this happen in the subsequent days after the initial blockade. Cheers go out to them. Amazing people! This is a victory, but the ship is now headed to LA to port. It must be blocked there too. 

Amazing and shoutout to folks in LA where the ship is headed next!

Im in washington, and weve been preparing for this! it’ll be here tomorrow!

yes. I am here for this - downplay Europe like they downplay Asia and Africa. I refuse to recognize Europe as a true continental mass. #notsorry

Europe is Far West Asia and will now be referred to as such.

Western Asia.

It is not a continent
