HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT I, PT II, PT III)
Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

Four MIT students behind an award-winning Bitcoin mining tool will face off against New Jersey state authorities in court today when they attempt to fight back against a subpoena demanding their source code.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is representing 19-year-old MIT student Jeremy Rubin and three classmates in a remarkable case that stands out for the measure of aggression the state is using to obtain the code and identify anyone who might have tested the mining tool.
The case is reminiscent of a federal one that targeted Aaron Swartz after he was arrested by MIT police in 2011 for downloading more than 4 million scholarly journal articles from the JSTOR digital library, offered to MIT students, to make them more widely available. Swartz faced multiple charges for his activity and killed himself as he was preparing for trial. Although there is currently no indictment or pending criminal charges against Rubin and his friends, state authorities have indicated that they believe the researchers may have violated state laws. The case marks a disturbing trend among authorities to go after researchers, innovators, tinkerers and others who try to do cutting-edge projects to help the tech community, says EFF staff attorney Hanni Fakhoury.
“It’s a very broad subpoena that hints at criminal liability and civil liability,” he says. “For a bunch of college kids who put something together for a hackathon—they didn’t make any money, the project never got off the ground and now is completely disbanded—there are some very serious implications.” …

Omar is no longer in Guantanamo. Left without options, he pled guilty to war crimes so that he’d be given an eight year sentence and be able to transfer to a prison in Canada. He remains in prison there. His story is absolutely heartbreaking. This was a 15 year old boy who has been described as crying out for his mother, who slept holding a Mickey Mouse book one of his captors gave him. A teenager taken from his family, tortured, humiliated, threatened with rape, and falsely imprisoned for 12 years now. You can help Omar by writing to him, donating for his defense, and signing petitions for him. Please visit http://freeomarakhadr.com to learn more.
So a National Security Agency recruiter named “Neal Z.” was manning a booth a University of New Mexico job fair when he was confronted by two students with cameras who began interrogating him about the agency’s spying tactics.
It began with one student accusing the NSA of collecting metadata of all phone calls within the United States, which Neal Z. first denied.
But when the student assured him that the NSA does do this, Neal Z. relented and admitted that it was done under the “legal authority” of the secret FISA court (United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court).
The student then pointed out that a congressional panel determined that the collecting of metadata from U.S. phone calls was illegal and unconstitutional as Neal Z. tried to remain smug while displaying a wide-eyed paranoia that this kid knew too much.
“So why is it legal to collect information on every American citizen?” the student asked.
Neal Z. tried to brush him with off by saying, “you don’t understand what that collection is all about and if you don’t leave soon, I’m going to call the university security to get you out of my face.”

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
UNCHECKED! No state or federal intervention at all!
You telling me NOBODY in this country has the authority to put an end to this?
Nobody has the power to dismantle this oppressive police force who has consistently violated the civil rights of these Black people publicly for an entire month?
Like, why the fuck is this STILL going on?
WHY has everybody harboring Darren Wilson not also been brought up on fucking charges?
Colorful demonstrations and weekend marches are vital but alone are not powerful enough to stop wars. Wars will be stopped only when soldiers refuse to fight, when workers refuse to load weapons onto ships and aircraft, when people boycott the economic outposts of Empire that are strung across the globe.

HE HANDED THAT SHIT TO HIMMMMM
Farrakhan does not fear man. Amen.
I think this make the 10th time ive reblogged this
I was raised being told that Louis Farrakhan and men like him were dangerous and awful people; and seeing things like this has helped me to understand why my father and men like him think that.
As much as I may disagree with him sometimes, he is an incredibly intelligent, insightful, well-spoken, clever, and charismatic man. I admire him, despite what I disagree with.
