Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.

Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

What's happening in Hong Kong????


convalesc:

Protests are happening in the Central & Western District, the Wan Chai District and the Kowloon District of Hong Kong since 22nd September, since Beijing withdrew their promise of universal suffrage for Hong Kong. These protests were meant to be and are PEACEFUL PROTESTS.

Yet police in riot gear are attacking crowds of UNARMED pro-democracy student protesters and protesters from the Occupy Central movement (a civil disobedience movement aimed at achieving universal suffrage occurring in Hong Kong). At least NOW TV, BBC NEWS, and APPLE DAILY have confirmed that pepper spray and rubber bullets are being fired at demonstrators and there is tear gas being launched into crowds and it’s spreading INSIDE the Central MTR station. 

Judging from all the photos and Apple Daily news reports I’ve seen, there are police stationed at Lippo Center, outside Lan Kwai, and Jordan + Tung Chung MTR stations look entirely closed off to everyone but the police. There are protesting crowds in Causeway, in Mong Kok on Argyle Street, in the HKAPA and Gloucester Road + Nathan Road are FILLED with protesters.

Hong Kong is no longer safe. Central has been paralyzed. 

There’s a live feed of everything that’s happening here

So weird how John and Hank supported Laci Green against Sam Pepper but crickets for Shane’s fans threatening Franchesca.
