Children, Climbing, and cnn.com: U.S. NEWS LADY LIBERTY PROTEST July 5 A 44-year-old woman was arrested yesterday for climbing the Statue of Liberty in protest of l.C.E and the separation of migrant families. Therese Patricia Okoumou, 44, was arrested yesterday after climbing the base of the Statue of Liberty in protest of ICE and the separation of migrant families. Okoumou was taken into custody for refusing to leave the base of the statue after authorities tried to verbally coax her down. The protester crossed the base of the statue for nearly three hours while holding a t-shirt that said “Rise and Resist” and “Trump Care Makes Us Sick”. Okoumou said she would not leave the base of the statue until “all the children are released.” ___ Officer Brian Glacken of the New York City Police Department’s Emergency Service Unit said in a statement: - "At first she was being a little combative, then she was willing to cooperate with us. She actually apologized to us for having to go up and get her.” ___ Therese Patricia Okoumou is affiliated with the protest group Rise and Resist, but her climb was not a part of a planned protest. Police believe other demonstrators at the base of the statue assisted Okoumou in scaling the statue, but are not certain as to how she got up there. ___ Liberty Island was evacuated due to the altercation. __ Photos-Footage: CNN

Anaconda, Cars, and Doctor: Nazia Hasan Kazi November 14 at 8:59am When did people start thinking "nonviolent protest meant "candlelight vigils" instead of withholding your labor, boycotting, shutting down highways and roads, opening cages, breaking laws that are unjust? Asking for a friend. moncarnetdenote: geekandmisandry: smitethepatriarchy: geekandmisandry: taranoire: uteruskraken: taranoire: Well, shutting down highways and roads is dangerous and puts people at risk of harm. Other than that…. 😑 and how does it do that? How are you at risk because you can’t go down the street you wanted to? Because streets are used for emergency services. Also, EVERYONE uses roads. So, just as you might be inconveniencing white motorists on a Sunday drive you’re also putting the wellbeing of everyone at risk. People have doctor appointments, obligations, kids need to get to school. The only people you’re REALLY hurting when you disrupt vital services are the poor and disabled. I’m poor and disabled, i have no time to be a shield here. Protestors rarely ever cause blockage to emergency vehicles and telling people to protest in a way that doesn’t inconvenience anyone is ridiculous. Staying quietly out of the way is not how change gets accomplished. People protest BECAUSE people are dying but I guess those people don’t fucking matter? I’ve been to multiple protests that have blocked roads. Once, an emergency vehicle needed to get through. You know what happened? The protesters moved out of the way to let the emergency vehicle through and then moved back into place. I know it sounds IMPOSSIBLE but I saw it happen. People just so desperately want to perpetuate myths about protests, they sound like the fox news journalists who will call them “riots”. Protests are often organised and have people with experience as a part of it. They aren’t an angry mob turning over cars because there football team lost. For a whole year, most of the students of my province led a general strike against the government. Of course, this featured demonstrations and protests… Everyday, mostly in the evenings, including a few general and national protest days when we’d be almost half a million marching through the streets of Montreal. And I can say with 100% certainty… We NEVER kept the emergency vehicles from passing through. Fire truck? We’d move out the way and form a safety corridor for them to speed through, then tighten ranks again. Ambulance? We’d move the fuck out of the way as fast as possible. The last thing we ever wanted was to have a death on our conscience. We were protesting unfair laws, not out for blood (unlike what the government liked to imply though -_____-). You know who DID block the way to emergency vehicles though? The riot police. Whenever they injured people when they fired flashbang grenades right in the crowds and the exploded and sent shrapnel into people’s legs or faces, when they fired rubber bullets at face level against safety regulations, when they repeatedly rammed a downed, restrained protester with their batons and boots until teeth and blood covered the floor, they also systemically blocked ANY ambulances and first responders trying to get to the injured, or leave with a person in critical state to get to the hospital. They formed tight ranks and raised their plexiglass shields and stared them down, backed them off, trapped them with the protesters. Hell, they even arrested some of the first responders attending to the injured when they mass arrested the people they trapped with their own militaristic ranks. You’re vilifying the wrong crowd, @taranoire, who I can’t seem to tag.

Apparently, Crime, and Lawyer: Black Man Attacked at White Supremacist Rally Facing Same Felony Charges As His Attackers @balleralert Black Man Attacked at White Supremacist Rally Facing Same Felony Charges As His Attackers – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, a warrant was issued for the arrest of a black man who was viciously beaten in a parking garage in Charlottesville. The incident occurred during the fatal white supremacist rally in August, just two months before the hate group returned to the scene of the crime with no consequence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo and video evidence of the incident was captured during the melee. In the photo, DeAndreHarris is pictured on the ground of the garage as white supremacist stomp him out, wielding wooden logs toward his body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, an unidentified white supremacist reported the incident to the police, which was later confirmed by a detective. Apparently, another white supremacist tried to pierce a counter-protester with a flagpole, prompting Harris to intervene, swinging a flashlight in the man’s direction. In turn, several white supremacists then attacked him in retaliation, knocking him unconscious repeatedly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although two of the men involved with Harris’ beating have been arrested and charged, a magistrate issued a warrant for Harris’ arrest for the same felony crime as his attackers. The alleged victim maintains that Harris initiated the altercation, however, Harris’ lawyer claims the charge is “clearly retaliatory.”
