The last picture roughly translates to: “Abusive police officer Velazquez #24208 throws pepper spray in the face of Professor Bernat Tort, for the crime of trying to peacefully enter Capitol Hill. Today, Tuesday April 18, 2017. Share!!”
In the Puerto Rican constitution it is establish that the public has the right to be present in any of the Senate’s sessions.
So, that professor (my professor, btw) got pepper prayed for nothing….

By the way, in case you don’t know, Auditing the debt basically means, GET ME THE RECEIPTS. Who took the loans, who gave them, what was that money used on, how much of it was illegal and WHO is responsible for the illegal part of it?
All of this, because Puerto Rico is in a 70 BILLION dollar debt, and everything is worst than before. If we owe all that money, they why wasn’t that money used on public education? On Health Care? In fixing the roads?
That’s ALL we want. The government decided, with DOORS CLOSE, to eliminate the auditory group. The protest yesterday are only one of the many forms of protest going on right now in Puerto Rico. The students are leading the protest, and the media are painting us as the bad guys.

Yes, some people in yesterday’s protest threw PAINT at the police officers… and the governor dare say that that is a disrespectful act, but FAILED to mention the disrespectful act of the police, throw pepper spray at peaceful protesters. They fail to mention the police officer that hit a girl with a piece of wood so hard she apparently ended up at the hospital.

Please, do not turn your backs on this. The protest and strikes and violence isn’t half as bad as what is happening in a Venezuela, BUT, it is still pretty horrible. Please share, let it be known! If you want to know more, PLEASE message me. I’ll try to find articles in English if you need to. If not, I have tons of Spanish articles and resources.

We, the students, do not trust the traditional media and newspapers, because it is widely known that they are own by certain political parties. So my resources are independent media made by students and other civic groups.

Philippine court upholds guilty verdict on U.S. Marine in transgender woman's killing
The Philippine Court of Appeals has upheld a guilty verdict on a U.S. Marine for killing a transgender woman nearly three years ago

A lower court had found Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton guilty of killing Jennifer Laude in a hotel in Olongapo, outside a former U.S. navy base northwest of the capital, in 2014. He was jailed for 6-10 years on a Philippine military base.

The Court of Appeals denied Pemberton’s appeal due to “lack of merit”. It also raised the compensation he must pay Laude’s family to 150,000 pesos ($3,000) from 80,000 pesos.

Are you tired of being discriminated against? and lack of representation in the media?
Well try ‘Privilege’ by white people
Or if you’re tired of your home countries being terrorised by radical groups, but noone cares until those same radical groups attack a western country?
Well, you should probably try  ‘Privilege’ by white people
You won’t have to deal with that
Wear this cologne!

Chicago Police Department engaged in rampant abuses, DOJ says

  • Officers in the Chicago Police Department routinely used excessive and deadly force that violated subjects’ constitutional rights, according to a U.S. Department of Justice report released Friday.
  • The investigation found that officers engaged in a pattern or practice of abuses that federal officials attributed to “deficiencies” in how the CPD trains, investigates and punishes officers on the use of force.
  • Racist conduct is also prevalent among some CPD officers — behavior that was tolerated because of the deficiencies in the CPD’s systems of training, supervision and accountability, the DOJ said in a statement.
  • The report details alleged racial slurs that officers used against city residents. Read more

Police Reports Blame United Airlines Passenger for Injuries
The reports contradict videos of the incident seen by millions around the world.
By Joseph Hincks

Two of the aviation officers’ reports blame Dr. David Dao for his injuries. One, filed by an officer named James Long, alleges: “the subject started swinging his arms up and down with a closed fist. Ofc. Long was able to grab the subject and pull him away from the window seat towards the aisle. But suddenly the subject started flailing and fighting.”

According to Long, it was Dao knocking the officer’s arm away, “which caused the subject to fall, hit, and injured his mouth on the armrest on the other side of the aisle.”
