Fusion Center National Day of Action Norwalk, CA

lapd-spyingToday over a hundred activists, many youth, gathered outside the Los Angeles Fusion Center to protest, as a day of national action against spying done on the people by the police. This is not just an “activist problem”. Students, artists, tourists, and every day people are having “Suspicious Activities Reports (SARs) filed against them for taking pictures, drawing local landmarks, taking videos, walking, doing pretty much anything, or acting in any way an officer may “using his or her judgement” deem “Suspicious”. An alarming number of these SARs are being filed against people of color, specifically targeting the black community.

The follow is video I shot today, from the protest, including speakers and skits. Please share these videos, inform yourself, and every one you come into contact with, about how your rights are violated by those whose jobs are supposedly “To Serve and Protect”. We all know that means capitalism, not the people.

Hours after this protest I learned LASD shot an innocent unarmed man who was trying to help a wounded neighbor out,  and wonder to myself how much more has to happen before more wake up to what the real dangers in the street are. THE POLICE!

No Justice No Peace: Kelly Thomas’s Murders Let Free

How the fuck were these violent criminals found not guilty? #JusticeForKellyThomas

How the fuck were these violent criminals found not guilty? #JusticeForKellyThomas

Another case of police brutality goes unpunished as the violent murders of Kelly Thomas were found not guilty in an Orange County court yesterday.

I am completely disgusted with this farce of a “legal system” we have in this country, as I cannot believe that anyone could view this footage and find them not guilty! Trigger warning: This is an extremely violent and brutal beating by the Fullerton Police, be aware before clicking this link!

Tonight over 100 people gathered tonight in solidarity with the Thomas family against the ruling, The LAist Magazine put together a piece on it with photos from live tweeters, and video.

The LA Times reports the FBI is now looking further into the case, as they had already begun to investigate in 2011 as to whether his rights were violated.

There are protests already being planned. Anonymous plans a protest Tues the 14th at 11am at the Fullerton Police Department https://www.facebook.com/events/607232352658522

We have also heard a community call out for Saturday the 18th at 10AM also at the Fullerton Police Department.

We must demand accountability, because obviously these kangaroo courts are not serving justice.

These monsters need to be held accountable for murders, brutal beatings, and psychological terror they have continued to perpetrate unabated against the people for far too long. Why are they not held accountable to the laws they are supposedly meant to uphold?

We live in a country that fears imaginary “terrorists” yet believe in police who are 100 times more likely to maim or kill you or someone you love. Anyone who supports these people also has blood on their hands.

I urge you to join these protests, as well as every protest for every victim. This is not ok, and our silence is consent! No more killer cops on our streets, or any streets!

RIP Kelly Thomas, we are going to keep fighting for justice.


Inspiration and Reflections

ACAB

Cats get clicks.

Been trying to write for months now, and I have a lot of inspiration, but a wall seems to have been formed when it comes to the words flowing through into a semi-coherent pattern.

A lot has happened over the past year, you may have seen a bit of the uglyness on this blog, if you missed out, the password for the locked posts is OLASM. Enjoy.

The past 2+ years have been a life changing experience to say the least, and it is so hard to put into words, put into a context where people will actually understand what has happened, what we we have been fighting for, what little changes we made, if any, ect. There is a lot that happened, and without context, a lot of it makes no sense, or comes off as uninteresting?

All around the world revolution is happening while Amerikkka sits on its ass getting fatter, watching their “programming”. I tell my friends I am out on the front lines, filming it LIVE, streaming breaking news as it happens, as it won’t be shown on TV.  They watch football, DWTS, or whatever distraction of the season is popular.

I went to see “The Square” tonight, which is the documentary about the Egyptian Revolution. I liked the film, and thought it was actually done quite well to give laymen an intro into what has been happening in Egypt over the past 3 years in Tahrir Square. I started following it before Occupy started, watching the reports on Al-Jazeera, and RT, wondering if the people here would ever wake up and take to the streets in a similar fashion. I was excited to see this film.

Watching the movie hit really lose to home in a lot of ways, yet we here in the US are lucky enough as protestors not to have live rounds fired on us for simply rallying, though we have been shot with less lethal rounds, tear gassed, had flash grenades launched at us, been beat by wooden and metal batons, and run over by horses, vehicles, and assault squads, so the feeling of solidarity was quite strong.

I don’t want to give anything away of the movie… I think you should watch it and make your own determinations.

I will say it was bizarre sitting in a super ritzy theater at the “Museum of Tolerance” surrounded by the rich white people we are fighting against in our own country, as well as in Israel. Most were stiff, motionless, emotionless. The couple next to me fell asleep, as gunfire rang out, and people on the screen screamed, and cried, sometimes their last cries, as the reality of death in the streets was well represented. I felt so detached from the other people in that room, knowing only a handful of people there had ever experienced the realities of revolution, and revolutionary times, and if they had, they gave them up when Vietnam ended. Myself and two comrades were some of the youngest people in the room, if not the youngest which in our late 20’s/ early 30s is astounding.

Do I hope this film opened some eyes. Sure. Did I think that the majority of the audience truly gets or appreciated the film? No.

Do I think it made some of them rethink their lives and check their privilege? We can only hope.

Has it inspired me to keep fighting? Hell yeah… I will never stop.
