Inspiring photos show the Hong Kong protesters’ parting gift to the government 

Honk Kong’s democracy protests are over — for now. 

Hong Kong police arrested pro-democracy activists and cleared out most of the protest area on Thursday, marking an end to more than two months of street demonstrations, Reuters reports.

But while Hong Kong’s turbulent democracy protests may have come to an end, the protesters who flooded Civic Square in central Hong Kong have a message for government officials:

This isn’t over.

Anonymous Takes The Hoods Off The KKK After Threats Of ‘Lethal Force’ On Ferguson Protesters

With tension already on the rise while waiting for the Grand Jury decision to be handed down in the case of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, the KKK has promised to use “lethal force” against protesters. That didn’t go down well with Anonymous, so the loosely-knit Internet collective has responded in the best way possible,…

Ferguson protesters stage “die-in” to send America a critical message

On the eve of a grand jury decision in the case of Ferguson, Missouri, police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown in August, protesters have done anything but sit and wait.

Braving the cold and the snow, more than a hundred people gathered on the streets of St. Louis Sunday, temporarily blocking a major intersection in the process. Reuters reported that dozens of people staged a “die-in” — which involved some protesters pretending to have been shot by others acting as police officers — as a way of honoring Brown’s memory. 

Protesters are bracing for the worst | Follow micdotcom

Do you see this? Do you see this?

This is a photo of members from two of the largest, and most infamous rival gangs in America RALLYING TOGETHER, SIDE BY SIDE, in Baltimore to protest the death of Freddie Gray who was another victim of police brutality. This is the magnitude of police brutality protests. This is what Kendrick Lamar is talking about.

“The word was respect
Just because you wore a different gang color than mines
Doesn’t mean I can’t respect you as a black man
Forgetting all the pain and hurt we caused each other in these streets
If I respect you, we unify and stop the enemy from killing us.”

And what are the headlines? 

2,000 people marched to city hall. Around 100 people were responsible for destruction. 12 people were arrested. 12 PEOPLE OUT 2,000 PROTESTERS WERE ARRESTED. And they’re saying that this was a “violent protest”?

No. It wasn’t. I’m going to find more articles and eyewitness accounts about how people were actually trying to prevent some of the opportunists from trashing cop cars and such. For now read this MIC article.  

Please find all the articles you can, I don’t care if they’re liberal, conservative, left wing, right wing, whatever. Read everything you can to make sure we know the truth, hell send them to me! This has to stop. This stigma and this black bashing has to stop. #BlackLivesMatter and don’t fucking dare come at me with the #AllLivesMatter shit either, we need to protect the oppressed while it’s in our faces and it’s being exposed. 

//Update: This post was made on Sunday, April 26. As of today, April 28, more than 200 arrests have been made. Over 15 buildings have been set fire and the National Guard has been called in to help the Police force. Violence is making the headline today and rightfully so but I encourage everyone to reblog and share the positive highlights of this event, the citizens preventing violence and cleaning up the streets to keep the city intact. Take every news story with a grain of salt. Violence may be the voice of the oppressed but don’t let it speak louder than the love of the oppressed.//
