This is really fucking powerful.
An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“
Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.
this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?
Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.
Because I fear that many AsAms today are forgetting our history of solidarity with black lives and black power.
We must not forget.
When there’s a series of justified crimes… No matter what their race may be, one must fight against the wrongdoers
Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference. Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.
this happened in the past 23 days
The KKK now dresses in blue
why THE FUCK is no one talking about this
why isnt this on the news
we all know the reason why. stop the bullshit.
And this shit happened on May 18…MAY 8-FUCKING-TEENTH!
I read the article and this honestly makes me so fucking angry. I encourage all my followers to reblog the shit out of this. Share it on your Facebook and Twitter, too.
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is more than eight years away, but the human costs of preparing for the event are already piling up.
Qatar is expect to spend $100 billion on new infrastructure in the lead-up to the World Cup, and it’s been importing millions of much-needed migrant workers to do the construction. Most of these workers are from developing regions of South Asia — Nepal, India, Bangladesh, etc. — and they go to Doha in the hopes of a better life. Instead, what they find is akin to “modern-day slavery.”
Though the Qatar World Cup committee has denied human rights abuses, emerging reports indicate flagrant disregard for human life. Plus, it’s already on track to be the deadliest sporting event in history, taking the title from the previous record-holder: the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Qatar shouldn’t only be stripped of the World Cup due to bribery and scandal, but also due to the many human rights violations that have occurred upon it’s migrant workers…modern-day slaves through Qatar’s kafala employment system.
do you think inflation made steve cry?
Abolish this very system that enslaving every human on this planet while fat pigs are monetizing everything and putting numbers on computer and call it “money or debt”.
Always reblog to show the comparison between the white collar crime & crime and their consequences.
By far the white collar crime is more sinister in a sense of how many people are affected by their “scheme” using their a bag of fucking tricks as thousands of people’s life savings turned to the ashes
Child labor is common on tobacco farms in the United States, where children are exposed to nicotine, toxic pesticides, and other dangers. Child tobacco workers often get sick with vomiting, nausea, headaches, and dizziness while working, all symptoms consistent with acute nicotine poisoning. Many work 50 to 60 hours a week without overtime pay, often in extreme heat. They may be exposed to pesticides that are known neurotoxins. Many also use dangerous tools and machinery, lift heavy loads, and climb to perilous heights to hang tobacco for drying. The largest tobacco companies in the world purchase tobacco grown in the US to make popular cigarette brands like Marlboro, Newport, Camel, Pall Mall and others. These companies can’t legally sell cigarettes to children, but they are profiting from child labor. US law also fails these children, by allowing them to work at much younger ages, for longer hours, and under more hazardous conditions than children working in all other sectors. Children as young as 12 can work legally on tobacco farms and at even younger ages on small farms.
PLEASE, DON’T TURN A BLIND EYE ANY LONGER
I’m sorry if this “bothers” you but it really needs to be said. Look at the labels before you buy. These companies don’t deserve your business
Sadly no one here will even pay attention to this. More people will pay attention to the stupid things Justin bieber does or the stuff that whore kim kardashian says..
honestly the beagle one hits me the hardest. one of my very best friends is a beagle and he the is the sweetest, most compassionate being i know.
i read an article about why beagles are chosen to testing and its because they are one of the most docile and forgiving animals, and that makes me so sad because its so true.
I fucking hate animal testing. I just wish the world wasn’t so cruel to such beautiful creatures.
The only way to stop this is to stop them, like a group of guys raping a young girl sometimes u just try and stop them except the group of guys is about 500k elite banking families and royal families and their not raping a girl their raping hundreds of millions of girl and boy mentally physically emotionally and their experimenting on them with more things than you would ever try to study in a lifetime to believe. We need to stop them and redefine civilization.
"Statistics show that 1 in 4 women in the US is a victim of domestic violence, those numbers jump to 1 in 2 if they are married to a cop.
Law Enforcement officers beat their significant other at nearly double the national average. Several studies, according to Diane Wetendorf, author of Police Domestic Violence: Handbook for Victims, indicate that women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families. For American women overall, the figure is 25 percent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
On April 15th, more than 230 girls were kidnapped from their school in Nigeria. Join the global call. Demand their unconditional release. http://wefb.it/TYwPy9 #BringBackOurGirls
this is heartbreaking and I don’t think it’s receiving enough attention
In 1981, Irish Republican Army volunteers went on hunger strike to protest the refusal of the British government to recognize their political status. Rather than concede to the obviousness of the political nature of their incarceration. Thatcher let 10 men starve to death, including Bobby Sands, who would come symbolize fearless resistance to British imperialism.
For those who think very lightly of their incredibly struggling challenge against British empire.
Then please do me a favor and watch the movie called “HUNGER”
