NYTimes nails it. 

Institutional brutality and harassment by the police transform citizens into the enemy in their own community.

    It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.

We dont have better CEOs worthy of higher pay, we just have greedier ones that abuse their employees and suck the profits for themselves.

This goes hand in hand with the breaking of labor unions in America.

The Waltons are wealthy off the backs of exploited labor in China and The US.

    Twitter Feeds Reporting from Ferguson

    fishingboatproceeds:

    Couldn’t find a list like this, so…

    Wesley Lowery, Washington Post journalist who was arrested while sitting in a McDonald’s.

    Local alderman Antonio French.

    Huffington Post journalist Ryan Reilly, who was also arrested while reporting on the protests.

    Local TV reporter Christina Coleman.

    Guardian reporter Jon Swaine.

    Rembert Browne.

    I’m sure there are many, many other good sources of information on the ground; hopefully, people will reblog with links to them.

    For an overview of what’s happened in Ferguson, Missouri since police shot and killed an unarmed teenager named Michael Brown, this New York Times story has some background. You can also read about the story in the LA Times, and there are live updates at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

    There’s livestream video here.

    CultureHISTORY: The Ferguson Protests - #NMOS14

    In light of Mike Brown’s murder, and the police occupation of Ferguson, something extraordinary is happening. With the help of #BlackTwitter, social media, the spotlight of national attention and the impassioned citizens of Ferguson, a protest movement is taking shape and it is important to bear witness.

    First there was the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown thread which was reported in the NY Times & LA Times, the #DontShoot thread of photos (some above), and tomorrow a National Moment of Silence across the country for the victims of police brutality.  

    Thursday, August 14th#NMOS14 - 4:00P (PT) / 6:00P (CT) / 7:00P (ET). Check cities/location here.

    The issue of police brutality against communities of color is a decades-old problem. But with new technology, everyone has access to more information and these cases are getting more attention. Plus, in the last four weeks, four unarmed black men have been killed by policemen across the country. Along with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford in Dayton, OH and Ezell Ford in L.A. Yes, it’s time for a movement.
