Are you paying attention! #baltimore is in a #riot …how do you feel about that? Would you be helping? Should you be? Is it just to get the Patriot act signed again?

I don’t give a fuck about some fucking windows.

People are wringing their hands over some smashed windows, but where is your outrage about the police who smashed Freddie Gray’s spine? A man is dead. You can replace cop cars. You can replace broken windows. You can’t replace him. He was 25 years old. Freddie’s parents had to bury him this morning. And the people - police - who killed him are not in jail. They haven’t been arrested or charged. Mainstream media is saying that details of his death are unclear. What we know is this: He was fine when he was taken into police custody. And then his spine was broken in 8 places and now he’s dead.

When I say, “abolish the police,” I’m usually asked what I would have us replace them with. My answer is always full social, economic, and political equality, but that’s not what’s actually being asked. What people mean is “who is going to protect us?” Who protects us now? If you’re white and well-off, perhaps the police protect you. The rest of us, not so much. What use do I have for an institution that routinely kills people who look like me, and make it so I’m afraid to walk out of my home?

My honest answer is that I don’t know what a world without police looks like. I only know there will be less dead black people. I know that a world without police is a world with one less institution dedicated to the maintenance of white supremacy and inequality. It’s a world worth imagining.

Some news as a nice precurser/omen for the International Day Against Police Brutality ahead this Sunday, March 15. This morning in Montreal, a severed pig’s head (in the photo here, from a mainstream media source) was left in front of the Montreal Police Fraternity (the cop organization that defends killer cops, and whose unapologetic leader, Yves Francoeur, describes the Montreal cops as a paramilitary organization, and also considers Montreal’s “multi-ethnic” population a risk to his officers; both are public quotes). The pig’s head is in a pentagram, and the note on the door translates as: “You took them alive, we want them back alive. May ghosts haunt you forever." Motherfucking YES, witches!

standing next to a sikh elder in a scooter, surrounded by over 70 aggressive cops & over 200 of them in total, including on the roof above us. tried to intimidate us for 5 hours, bully, push etc including elders and children. we were protesting india’s prime minister narendra modi’s visit to the ross street gurdwara. great turnout! this fascist was banned until recently from canada & the u.s because of his war crimes against thousands of muslims in gujarat (including widespread sexual violence) and other minorities such as sikhs & more recently christians, indigenous people etc. and wants to force india to become an ultra-right hindu only state. just inked a uranium deal with harper. not one visible hindu organization in sight but so proud to stand side by side with sikh & muslim resisters. #femmewarriors #ftp #justiceformuslimsandsikhs #nomodi #noharper

Shut It Down.

Have none of you been informed about Homan Square?
It is a black site in Chicago where police are illegally detaining, beating, starving, and abusing “suspects”- which includes completely innocent people they just assume are doing something wrong or are someone they are not. They are not allowing them to contact any lawyers, family, friends, no one for help. 
Another famous black site being- Guantanamo Bay.
