Couldn’t find a list like this, so I thought I’d make one.

Wesley Lowery, Washington Post journalist who was arrested while sitting in a McDonald’s.

Local alderman Antonio French.

Huffington Post journalist Ryan Reilly, who was also arrested while reporting on the protests.

Local TV reporter Christina Coleman.

Guardian reporter Jon Swaine.

Rembert Browne.

I’m sure there are many, many other good sources of information on the ground; hopefully, people will reblog with links to them.

For an overview of what’s happened in Ferguson, Missouri since police shot and killed an unarmed teenager named Michael Brown who was about to begin college, this New York Times story has some background. You can also read about the story in the LA Times, and there are live updates at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

There’s livestream video here.

Also Christine Conetta, another Huffington Post journalist. 

And Trymaine Lee, MSNBC.

Matt Pearce for the LA Times, Michael Calhoun for CBS/KMOX.

You can also follow Julie Bosman for the New York Times.

*Trigger warning for my graphic commentary on this absurdity*

So let me get this straight…a colleague is caught anally raping a 10 year old and turning a blind eye is totally copacetic. But if the Board of Trustees removes an accessory to rape from the payroll, that’s worth rioting over?

It’s funny how we never see these spirited defenses of people who are actually raped, only those who wish to ignore rape and keep their jobs. Unbelievable. Every Penn State student rioting tonight should be goddamn ashamed of themselves. You assholes have made it that much harder for every abuse victim on your campus to ever seek help. 

Don’t you fucking tell me that we don’t live in a rape culture. Don’t you fucking tell me that our society supports me as a survivor.

I fucking know damn well that this country cares more about GODDAMN GAMES (because let’s be real: sports are GAMES, what CHILDREN do) than it does about me and other survivors.

FUCK YOU ALL.

UN Recommends Everyone Stop Telling Women What To Do With Their Bodies

daskannnichtsein:

mollydruwho:

The UN states that any country restricting a woman’s access to abortion and/or contraception is, in doing so, violating a woman’s human rights.

….finally.

So, we’ve got extremely reputable cancer-related organizations saying abortion doesn’t cause cancer or increase your risk.

We’ve got extremely reputable reports declaring post-abortion depression to be a hoax.

We’ve got extremely reputable reports showing how many women die from lack of safe, legal abortions.

And now we have the UN stating that ANY and ALL restrictions to the right to choose, to have knowledge, and to have contraception is a violation of human rights.

Your move, Anti-Choicers. Try not to use slavery, the Holocaust, or the Bible.

Fucking this.

Byron Spellman, 16, left, Robert Coleman, 15, center, and Elijah West, 16, right, are a few of the local Savannah youths who stood in front of a crowd Saturday at Sacred Heart Church wearing t-shirts implying that they are Troy Davis. They wanted to represent to the community that this unfortunate circumstance could happen to anyone at any age and that Troy Davis could have just as easily been them. One speaker said that people are walking around Savannah at this very moment without a care in the world and turning their heads to this situation, and they will continue to do so until it is their own loved one whose fate will be decided by an unjust system.

Inspiring activism. Heartbreaking and wildly unjust decision.

The peloton pay their respects.
A minute of silence before stage 4.  The stage is to be neutralised with each team taking a turn on the front over the course of the 216km.  No placings to be contested and the Leopard Trek team will cross the finish line together ahead of the four jersey holders.

RIP Wouter Weylandt.
