If your blog posts anything like the above, please reblog this so I can follow you! I really want to build up a big network of progressive bloggers to help inspire my own vision and get more involved in activism in general.
Please and thank you, comrades!
Oh hi mostly my entire blog.
Well, except cat pictures. I post those often.
Fantastic! How about the chancellor and the officer who actually sprayed the protesters? Let’s make it a triple.
You know what to do, Tumblr. As of 11:50 PM EST:
This morning at 8:45am a peaceful Occupy Melbourne Protester was violently stripped of her protest costume and disgarded on the ground in her bra and panties. The individual in question was part of the Occupy Melbourne protest and was dressed in a protest costume made from a converted tent. The significance of the costume was to hightlight restrictions placed on protesters staging a 24/7 protest in Flagstaff Gardens.
The protester was surrounded by at least 4 Melbourne City Council officers and 8 Victorian police officers.
Her movement was restricted by the formation of officers surrounding her and she was subsequently restrained as officers proceeded with aggressively removing her costume. At each stage she declared that she did not consent or feel comfortable with the actions of the council and police officers, stating that this was a sexual assault.”This is not consensual’.
Her requests and declarations were ignored as officers continued to rip and jossle her costume and person. A knife was requested and used by MCC Officers as the Protest Costume was cut from her body. The remaining severed costume was violently torn from her body while the protester herself was disgarded, semi-naked and crying on the ground as Vic police and MCC officers walked away with the costume. NO EFFORT was made to assess her health or welling after the incident.
Wow. I really do not know what to say to this other than it’s 100% disgusting no matter the gender of the protester involved - but her crying out that it’s not consensual and someone muttering “call the cops…” is just an extra layer of disgusting.
Time for a mic check?
Sheriff Joe doesn’t want protesters at his speaking gig, and we all know what Sheriff Joe thinks of the Bill of Rights.
Hey Tucson (and the rest of Arizona) - you know what to do! Go share your love of the First Amendment with America’s
Toughest Worst Sheriff.

Newt the Pharisee.
And it’s spot on. If anyone was watching KCAL’s coverage of the #OccupyLA raid, you’ll know how disgusting it was, particularly when their anchors admitted on-air, “We have to be careful what we say,” and “we’re not showing anything we’re not allowed to show” because the “LAPD is working with us and giving us information. In return, we don’t report their tactical information.”
