This is a fund set up for the people who have been arrested while protesting in Ferguson. Please donate if you can and share widely. This is concrete action we can take to support the people of Ferguson. Also please call your local representative and let them know you do not agree with what’s happening. Here’s a script and a way to find the contact info for your local reps.
the anon message the twitter group they took down Ferguson webstire, email and phone lines down two days ago. It was on that article that I just posted. Not only that they leaked Jon B address, phone number and even a picture of what his houses looks like. Like wild from start to finish
wait what .. explain further..
Washington posted this today,
"Then, apparently unhappy with the government’s response, it made good on its word.
The Internet crashed at City Hall. E-mail systems were hit. Phones died. City officials told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch a flood of traffic targeting the city’s site “just kept coming.””
See the white countercultural bloggers reblog black-and-white photos of their outdated notions of anarchy and rebellion, but watch them stay quiet in the face of full-colour, high-definition white police-perpetuated brutalization and murder of my people
Black people are suffering and dying for that “dream of fighting the status quo” that you romanticize, and yet you still refuse to help us dismantle it.
Through your complacency, you’ve become the enemy.
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Khy. As someone whose partner was also struck by debilitating chronic illness, I know how exhausting it is to be a caretaker in this situation. If you feel like you might want to talk with a therapist, I highly recommend it. Looking after my partner during this time took a toll on me that was greater than I'd realized, and speaking with someone about it did a lot to get me in a better place, and in turn, be able to take better care of my partner.
Thank you so much for your empathetic solidarity, Grey_Head. I’ll definitely look into it when I’ve got the funds. Right now, most of my resources are going towards medication expenses, accessibility devices and, well, you know just as well as I do.
I’m looking at a daunting pile of disability support application papers, trying to figure out how to cut through all of this red tape.
One page at a time, I suppose.
I hope you and your partner get through the days with joy and pleasure.
