Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

Some things friends/family in Hong Kong have shared with me today.

The people of Hong Kong are fighting for their right to democracy, free speech, and un-censored information. Protests have shut down major parts of the city. Police are attacking protesters with pepper spray and tear gas. Tanks are rolling through the streets.

In the West, Hong Kong is often lumped together with China. Many aren’t aware of the city’s incredibly complex, diverse culture, independent of China. Don’t overlook this. Don’t sit back as China breaks the promises it made to Hong Kong, endangering the lives and freedom of over seven million people.

Spread this like fire. We may be far away, but we can raise awareness.

I’m just going to put this here again, because as impressive as the professional photos on BBC/NYT/etc are, all of these pictures are from family/friends of mine, all of whom are people who are currently in Hong Kong, living through this. Perhaps just to me, that is more powerful than anything I’ll see on the front of a newspaper. 

HANK YOU
