May Day 2017 - Paris

French CRS anti-riot police officers are engulfed in flames as they face protesters during a march for the annual May Day workers’ rally in Paris on May 1, 2017. The march was disrupted as scores of hooded youths threw firebombs at riot police in full gear, who responded with tear gas and truncheons.

Burn baby burn.

Honestly if tampons and pads are taxable as “luxury items” yall should just say fuck it and show up to work/school/church/funerals/weddings profusely bleeding from your vaginas and dare somebody to say something. “Oh I should use a pad? Well that’s a luxury I can’t afford.” Then plop down on their white couch and spread ya legs.

Battle in Seattle is a 2007 film depicting the historic anti-globalization protest in 1999, as thousands of activists arrive in Seattle, Washington in masses to protest the WTO Ministerial Conference of 1999. The World Trade Organization is considered by protesters to contribute to widening the socioeconomic gap between the rich and the poor while it claims to be fixing it and decreasing world hunger, disease and death.

The movie portrays conflicts between the peaceful protesters and those committing property destruction whose actions were widely covered by the media. Although the protest began peacefully with a goal of stopping the WTO talks, police began teargassing the crowd and the situation escalated into a full-scale riot and a State of Emergency that pitted protesters against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard.
