This is what happened to us last night in Shaw. The police were violating our rights all night. We were peaceful. Some of our folks were beaten, one officer stood in front of another to block us from seeing him shoving his baton into a protesters abdomen.

One of our live streamers was sprayed by police for capturing them beating on protesters. Silly me, I thought we would be safe last night because we had legal observers with us from the National Lawyers Guild. NOPE, they got sprayed and arrested too. 17 of our protesters were arrested in total.

The screams, the beatings, the media running away, the tears, us yelling trying to find each other, the sound of them banging their batons on the ground to intimidate us … I will never forget last night. I have not slept since Friday, most of us are still trying to process what happened.

This is just a small piece of what we experienced last night. Ferguson protesters have been living this nightmare every day for the last 65 days, think about that. #Shaw #Ferguson #FergusonOctober



this dude posted a video of a woman who came up and started twerking and spraying him with a watergun while he was doing his aggressive anti-abortion harassment outside a clinic.  how is this not everywhere on tumblr, she is the greatest person i have ever seen.  the fact he posted it calling her an evil demon/racist murderer is tremendously lacking in self-awareness.  but note he had to disable the votes/comments.

asking him where the pro-lifers were when black young people are gunned down.  he has no real answer! the verbal abuse he sends toward her is genuinely harrowing, though, fair warning.

where is she? what is her name? how do i tell her how amazing and brave i think she is?

ETA: the original where he titled it claiming that she was an “evil demon” was pulled, this new version is courtesy of the benevolent peeingonthethingsyoulove who is most excellent

brilliant truth speaker. reminding him why she doesnt share his same god b/c his is lily white, asking what he’s done w/his life, dancing when he prays her away, harassing them so they are too distracted to harass those needing care. brilliant.
