WHY DIDN’T THEY TEACH YOU ABOUT THIS IN HISTORY CLASS?
The Christian Movement for Life, aka, MOVE
- a pro-green, vegan, anti-technology group
- living in a house in West Philadelphia
- BOMBED by the Philly PD, from the air, on May 13, 1985
- YES, 1985!!!
- the city killed 11 people (5 children), burned down 65 homes in a Black, middle-class, West Philly neighborhood, and caused $50,000,000.00 damage - all to “evict” the group and recover two shotguns
- You know of Mumia Abu-Jamal (3rd photo from bottom) but did you know he was affiliated with MOVE?
- Ramona Africa (2nd photo from bottom) and one child survived
- MOVE leader John Africa was murdered that day
This was not the ONLY time an American city was bombed, btw. The first time, it was ALSO whites bombing Black people. And you want to talk about TERRORISM???
And what else don’t you know about your country and it’s treatment of Black people?
Get to Googling… AND Youtubing…
The US government dropped a bomb on a row house in a major American city and no one ever seems to mention it
Donald Andrews Jr. A Black man and Business Owner from New York was cleared just last April After being Arrested on Drugs Charges in Scotia, New York. Police were “suspicious” of Donald Andrews Jr.’s store, which sells incense and smoking paraphernalia, and sent undercover informants several times in March. In one of the informants visits he is seen on Andrews hidden camera planting Crack Cocaine on the counter in Andrews Store.
Andrews was arrested in April 2013 and cleared only after he asked a Grand Jury to watch the surveillance footage from his store. The informant used a cellphone photo he took of the planted drugs as evidence that Andrews was dealing, leading to his arrest.
*YES THIS IS FUCKING REAL LOOK IT UP*
The police claim that the informant has now “fled” and they haven’t found his whereabouts. The sheriff “claims” his investigators didn’t purposely framed Andrews and have the “informant” out to be some rogue agent.
FYI this same “informant” has lead to seven other drug-related arrests the Report says.
Sounds like a Movie right? But yall still out here calling people “conspiracy theorists”.
Andrews is now in the process of suing NYPD.

Cops sexually assault mother, break 10-year-old son’s leg
A Brooklyn cop kicked a 10-year-old boy in the shin, breaking his leg, as the child was recording him with his cell phone, according to court papers.
Cops were responding to Krystle Silvera’s Flatbush home looking for her ex-boyfriend in connection to violating an order of protection.
Krystle’s son Courtney Silvera was eating his breakfast cereal when the cops began knocking on the door at 7 AM.
Silvera’s 61-year-old mother, who is suffering from brain and lung cancer, answered the door but had difficulty understanding the cops’ reason for being there, the suit said.
“The police had come to our house before (due to the domestic violence complaint) and he’s fascinated by the police, he looks up to them,” Silvera, 30, a nursing student at Long Island University, told the Daily News.”
But the cop apparently didn’t like being recorded and began assaulting the child
“I heard my son screaming, ‘You can’t do that! You’re hurting me! Don’t hit me!’ ” she said.
The mother had been upstairs getting her 5-year-old daughter ready for school. She bolted downstairs into the fray, dressed in her underclothes, and was grabbed by a cop who pulled her outside in the freezing cold, the suit alleges.
While Silvera was being restrained, her breast popped out of her bra revealing a pierced nipple, according to the suit.
“The officer flicked the piercing, he flicked the ring up with his finger on my right breast,” she said. “He said, ‘Is this what mothers look like these days?’
Silvera was charged with assaulting the cops and released two days later on $1,500 bail.
When she returned home, Courtney’s leg was black-and-blue and swollen, she said. The boy was taken to Kings County Medical Center, where an X-ray showed his leg was fractured.
Silvera said her son was briefly handcuffed, but when cops learned he was only 10-years-old, they removed the restraints.
I HAD A MASSIVE TL;DR POST ABOUT TODAY’S PROTEST BUT GOOGLE CHROME DECIDED TO FREEZE AND SHUT DOWN SO I LOST EVERYTHING AND I REFUSE TO RE TYPE IT
BASICALLY THE CENTER OF RIO DE JANEIRO LOOKED LIKE THIS
A MILLION PEOPLE ALTOGETHER
100% PEACEFUL MANIFESTATION WHERE WE CHANTED THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AMONGST OTHER THINGS UNTIL THE POLICE AND SPECIAL FORCE UNIT CAME ALONG
ESSENTIALLY: IT WAS SOME S.O.S. ONU SHIT
THEY WERE NOT TRYING TO DISPERSE US THEY WERE PURPOSEFULY TRYING TO HURT US
it was brutal and merciless. in sum:
- internet connection was shut down. not even our cellphone signals worked. all street traffic cameras were cut off.
- they have rushed to a full street like the one above with their cars meaning to run us over;
- tossed pepper spray, stun grenades and rubber bullet at us for absolutely no reason;
- police has chased, cornered and threatened us (undercover ones as well);
- tossed tear gas inside subway stations and at a hospital entrance;
- doctors and patients were intimidated and threatened inside hospitals as well;
- a group that seeked shelter inside an university was blocked and cornered because all exists were taken. anyone who tried to leave was attacked. tear gas and grenades were also used against the ones inside;
- at other neighborhoods, lethal weapons and actual bullets were used;
- there are reports of people whose hand or feet have to be amputated thanks to stun grenades while others were injured with rubber bullets right in the eye/face (and one actually hit me in the back because a motherfucker aimed right at me and before you sneer let me tell you — that shit HURTS).
we are being attacked for no reason by the ones who are supposed to protect us. we’re being opressed, they’re trying to take away our right to march to the streets (and in some cases, even walk through them).
the media has not talked about any of this. when they choose to show us, they portray us as criminals which is NOT true. (for the most part — because i won’t lie, some stores have been plundered but that’s a really small cunning group that have taken the opportunity to rob; they do NOT represent us) we are people fighting for our basic right and we don’t deserve to be treated like this.
So…police openly admit they slammed on the ground, choked, arrested, and charged with resisting arrest a 14-year-old playing on a beach with his friend and a 6-week-old puppy doing absolutely nothing wrong, and we’re supposed to believe they were neutralizing a serious threat? A threat to what exactly? A reality where black children are allowed to play on a public beach and it not be a problem?
There is a petition you can sign here to have the charges dropped. I can’t believe they haven’t been dropped already.
This is real life. BE CAREFUL MTL folks, they’re looking for any excuse to fuck with people now.
Police evicted two dozen Amazon natives on Friday from an old native museum that will be demolished to clear areas adjacent to Brazil’s legendary Maracana soccer stadium, the main venue for next year’s World Cup.
The natives from different Amazon tribes had been living on the grounds of the Rio de Janeiro museum since 2006 and were resisting its demolition, which caused further delays to the overhaul of the stadium complex.
Riot police handcuffed the natives, some of whom wore feathered headdresses and body paint, and used tear gas to disperse street demonstrations by sympathizers trying to block the eviction.
The museum area was originally planned to become a parking lot for the stadium, but after the protests Rio authorities decided to build a sports museum on the site. The Indians were taken to alternative housing provided by the city.
this makes me feel sick.
[photo: image of a letter from Kimani Gray’s school. to the left there is a picture of him, a young black boy wearing a yellow and striped polo posing with a smaller child of color. text on the photo reads, “forever Kiki.” there are handwritten notes all over the letter. most read along the lines of, “we love you” and “love you forever Kimani.”]
Earlier this week Kimani Gray’s high school, The Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction, sent a letter to parents and staff in honor of the teen who was fatally shot by undercover cops last week after he allegedly pulled a gun on them.
“We believed in his potential from the day he entered our school,” wrote principal Matt Willoughby. “He traveled for over an hour each day from East Flatbush to Midtown West to our little architectural themed high school. The year and a half we had with Kimani allowed us to get to know his best self.
“Kimani made great strides this year academically. He was taking an extra English class after school; he was writing a dramatic dialogue in another English class; his group in Design class was working on a project to design a school. Now they are working to complete their project without him.”
“He always smiled, he came to school every day, and the kids here miss him,”a teacher told the New York Post. “That says a lot.”
And now the police have barred press from covering the candlelight vigil in East Flatbush, arrested at least three people and will probably get violent then claim this peaceful gathering was a riot. So done with the NYPD. How many children have to die before we start holding someone fucking accountable?
“Reyes was handcuffed and verbally, physically and emotionally abused, intimidated, humiliated, embarrassed and defamed,” the documents say. He was then charged with robbery.
“My son was crying, ‘Mommy, it wasn’t me! Mommy, it wasn’t me!’ I never imagined the cops could do that to a child. We’re traumatized,” Wilson Reyes’ distraught mom, Frances Mendez told The Post last night.
“Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs!’’ she said. “It was horrible. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”
it’s a racist police state in The Bronx, raising kids to be criminals.
school-to-prison pipeline is in full effect #thenewjimcrow
SEVEN FUCKING YEARS OLD
ACAB doesn’t even come close.
HE IS A BABY
HE’S A FUCKING CHILD. The fuck, yo?
WHAT THE FUCK
And now, he’ll remember this for the rest of his life and when he’s 17 he’ll see a cop harassing someone and he’ll intervene and get charged with assault on an officer and off to jail he’ll go, starting the life-long ritual of abuse at the hands of the justice department.
Three Aggressive NYPD Officers Handcuffed And Detain 15 Year Old Student For Using A Student MetroCard
A 15-year-old Harlem student claims she was roughed up, handcuffed, and detained by aggressive cops who mistakenly thought she was too old to be using a student MetroCard. “They called me liar,” Alexis Sumpter told the News of the July 26 incident. “Then they grabbed me by my arms and flung me up the stairs. I kept saying, ‘I’m only 15—why are you guys doing this?’ They said they didn’t owe me an explanation.”
Sumpter, who attends Harlem Village Academies, was on her way to her first day at a marketing internship on Canal Street when two plainclothes cops spotted her using her student MetroCard at the 125th Street Station. “They didn’t approach me in a calm manner and they were very rude the whole time,” she said. “They were talking to me like they were trying to show they were superior to me.” The DOE confirmed the card is valid until Aug. 17.
The cops demanded to know how old she was, but didn’t believe her when she said she was 15—she told them she didn’t have ID because she had recently been mugged for her iPhone and wallet. She says a third cop joined them, and pressed her face to a wall while the other two cuffed her. Cops called her father, who vouched that she was 15; still not believing her, they called her mother, who rushed over with her daughter’s birth certificate. Alexis was held in custody for 90 minutes altogether, and wasn’t arrested or given a summons; but she did go to the hospital because the handcuffs caused swelling on her wrists.
Alexis says she avoids that train now: “I don’t want to see them again,” she said. “I don’t want to have to go through that again.” The whole situation sounds eerily similar to the frivolous arrest of a 21-year-old female student who was held by NYPD for 36 hours for not carrying ID in Riverside Park—Sumpter’s situation also calls to mind the Charleston-dancing couple who claims they spent 23 hours in custody for dancing while waiting for the subway.
