Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.
This honestly makes me so emotional.

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.
The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.
This is an absolutely heartbreaking case of police brutality. A 22 year old black man with down syndrome was beaten by the police for the bulge in his pants. That bulge turned out to be his colostomy bag. They ripped the bag off his body. This was an unprovoked attack. No one is safe out here.
Reblogging with updated link. The old one was dead.
Remember the case of 22 year old Gilberto Powell.
From a medical perspective this is horrifying, beyond the brutality he could’ve died from infection from a leak or trauma to his stoma.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
Capitalism loves science when it’s used to develop new technologies or new means of extracting resources.
Capitalism is indifferent to science when it works on things which can’t be directly commercialized.
Capitalism really hates science when it investigates environmental degradation, or when it points out that the economy is running headlong into a brick wall of resource limitation.

Two Algerian teenagers got physically attacked, in a Parisian suburb (in a mostly Jewish neighborhood), by around 30 or so young Jewish people who, while beating them up, were calling them “dirty Arabs” and were telling them things like “You have nothing to do here. This is our neighborhood!” (x) along with shouts of “Israel! Israel!” (x). Absolutely no mention of it in most mainstream medias. Just imagine what the medias would have said if what had happened was 30 Maghrebi people beating up two Jewish youths while shouting “Palestine! Palestine!”.
