Hello my name is Grace and I live in Townsville, Australia. I am a Pan/Cis/Female and I'm hella cool. I have a gentle swagger about me.

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

Police action at peaceful UC Davis Occupy protest 

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.

Ferguson from my TL- August 18 (2/3)

Someone call the press because I’m about to make history

Tonight in Ferguson:

  • Stores are looted while police look on from armored vehicles.
  • Armored convoys confront the protesters
  • Police are taking a gentler tone, “Please disperse. We don’t want anyone to get hurt.” (TouloseO)
  • Protesters protect stores from looters

In other words, the progress made last night wasn’t as permanent as some may have anticipated. 

Don’t let this die. Don’t forget about this, the way everyone’s forgotten about so many things. Don’t let your government condone this shit.

people literally cannot get out antonio french is telling him to knock on doors if he has to

police/military have placed a physical road blockade, a media blackout, and a nofly zone, over the neighborhood where mike brown was murdered were the only eye witnesses live, at the heart of the protests, under the guise of stopping a “gun battle btwn cops and gangs”. there is nothing come out of canfield right now that i can find, which is absolutely terrifying.
