Please do not let them forget Breonna Taylor. Murdered in her own bed. Still no charges. The cops who shot her are still employed.
White people, it's your job to collect white people at a march for Black people. NBPOC- it's your job to collect NBPOC at a march for Black people. "Don't police other people's-" nuh uh. Black people have asked you how to behave at their marches. If you don't like it, get the fuck out the march. Your focus is protecting Black people at the fucking march about *protecting Black lives*
it should be noted that these bail reform laws that are now protecting protestors were crafted, campaigned for, and won primarily by black organizers

No one should make over $50K a year, if you’re doing that and not giving the rest back to the poor, the needy, and your community, you’re just hoarding it. Investing? Gambling with livelihoods to make yourself more money should be abolished. You make $1 million a year? Obviously a criminal, no one can do that by the sweat of their own brow.
James Scurlock was murdered in Omaha Saturday night during our protests. A white business owner (Jake Gardner) and known racist pulled up during the protests to "defend his business". He brandished a gun and yelled racial slurs before shooting James twice in the neck. He was 22. We heard an hour ago that all charges have been dropped against Gardner (less than three days after Scurlock was murdered).
DOWNTOWN SEATTLE (AND ADJACENT) TECH FOLKS:
"If anyone who lives near downtown Seattle has access to RTL-SDRs and has technical knowledge, and can spin up an instance of Trunk Recorder to broadcast to OpenMHZ, the only feed on there is of Eastside/Bellevue.
Having that instead of Broadcastify would separate out talkgroups"

All this "antifa terrorism designation" shit is 100% a smokescreen to distract you away from addressing racial injustice/the nigh unthinkable amount of violence perpetrated by police. Don't let your guard down over theatrics and bombastic language or shows of force. The goal is to make you think about the pageantry of protest/riots/etc and keep you there so you'll be subject to that mode, rather than thinking past it to the post-protest goal. You know better than to fall for it.
@SeanAloysiusOBrien Antifascists are tearing apart my fascist country, vandalizing big corporate stores, and burning white supremacist memorabilia. On top of all that, they're attacking paramilitary forces that murder black people and send brown people to concentration camps.
Boost if you can. Demand justice for Tony McDade, a black trans man who was shot five times in the back by a Tallahassee police officer. https://actionnetwork.org/letters/demand-justice-for-tony-mcdade

suddenly remembering that one time I was playing #DnD and one player had a stealthy catfolk character with a nearly unpronounceable name that meant "quiet movement through the leaves" in catfolk language and cried when the group just nicknamed him Russel (rustle)
