I didn't think I'd have to say this, let alone to two separate people, but one human life is worth more than every target store in existence

@tobi_o also for a very brief, very fast starting point: theroot has "A timeline of Events That Led to the 2020 'Fed Up'-rising" and it goes back to 1619. white people and/or non-USians needing some context to understand current events here ... this is super-condensed but maybe it can serve as a starting point:

Designating "Antifa" as a "terrorist org" would be like designating environmentalists, or socialists, or antiracists as "terrorists."

Antifa just means antifascist. Antifa isn't an organization, party, or gang; you can't be an official member.

But the US police state knows that

This is terrifying. Understand what is happening here: Antifa is not an actual organization; it's a decentralized group. There are no "Antifa leaders."

So now the US government will have the "right" to imprison anyone for "terrorism," if it just claims they're part of "Antifa."

Seriously hit me up if you are in LA and need anything. Money is the easiest thing that I can get to you but if you're really in a pinch or just need to talk let me know.

Dystopia is a white people word that means “what if all that shit happened TO US?!?”

Say you want to listen to broadcastify.com/listen/feed/2.

Take that last bit, 25818. That's the feed ID. The "direct stream link" is at audio.broadcastify.com/25818.m but that requires authentication...

There is, however, a feed served from broadcastify.cdnstream1.com/25 that doesn't require authentication. Just plug in the feed identifier for the feed you want instead of 25818 to listen to a different stream.

If you’ve already given to a Chicago bail fund and still have money left over, consider giving some to Assata’s Daughters. They are “an abolitionist organization led by Black women using a Black queer feminist lens and relationship-based tactics to organize bases of young Black people in divested-from areas of Chicago” and they’ve been doing great work for some time now. assatasdaughters.org/

it's not important what antifa actually is... it's what Trump believes it is: anybody that resists his administration and officially, apparently, his fascism.

Curfews are a great example of how law works in this country. They don't create the curfew because they think it will prevent a behavior from happening, they create the curfew because they want a legal reason to throw you in jail and attack you. they create laws as justification to target specific people they hate.

please make this go viral. police and national guard are patrolling neighborhoods and shooting civilians on their own property. make everyone see this [Minneapolis]
