Decolonial anti-imperialists are developing an alternative to Valentine’s Day: Death of Captain Cook Day. Much more rooted in love and liberation than the crass colonial commercialization that is valentines.
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
Our integrity sells for so little, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch, we are free.
A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. Alone, a symbol is meaningless, but with enough people, blowing up a building can change the world.
Rest In Power (9/22/16): Justin Carr, the 26-year old protester shot in Charlotte at a protest Wednesday night has passed today. Carr took to the streets demanding justice for the murder of Keith Lamont Scott at the hands of CMPD. Now Carr’s family is seeking justice for him. Police claim that he was shot by a civilian. The overwhelming majority of witnesses, including clergy and attorneys present say the police hit him with either a rubber bullet or tear gas canister. Livestreams and video from the night show police firing both seconds before Carr was shot in the head. Little information on the investigation has been released so far. His shooting proved a catalyzing moment in last night’s protest, shifting the mood from peaceful to rebellious. Please keep his family in your prayers tonight as we uplift him and his courage. #nojusticenopeace
