australia is a shitty country, with a shitty government and a stained human rights record
never forget that, ever
this country has killed so many its supposed to take care of - and stole the land, and now denies the land to those who have no where else to go.
destroy the notion that australia is a good country, it is not

Staten Island man dies after NYPD cop puts him in chokehold — SEE THE VIDEO

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.

She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.

“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.

 

They’re slaughtering us at an alarming rate

Iranian Jewish women - circa 1880

kurdish women tho wtf

Kurdish Jewish women (idk why nobody likes Kurdish Jews). here's a better quality image. They are some of the Kurdish people photographed by Antoin Sevruguin and can also be seen in this photo. Some handwritten notes accompanying the photo identified them as “Juives,” or Jewish women. That’s why they are identified as Iranian Jewish women; however they were also Kurdish.

this is has been one of my favorite photos for a while

While all of us can celebrate the return of the charmingly geeky, super enthusiastic field trip champion, Ms. Frizzle’s renewed presence in American living rooms is especially important for women and girls. That’s because, despite Ms. Frizzle’s unstoppable energy and daring thirst for adventure, real-world examples of her character — women who rock the science field — are lacking.
Netflix is bring back ‘Magic School Bus’ and that’s huge for women in science (via policymic)

We are outraged when an Indian police officer tells a rape victim she should marry her attacker but not when a California judge says a woman wasn’t really raped because she didn’t put up enough of a fight. We are outraged at 24,000 rapes in India but not 188,380 in America.

I really recommend reading the entire article. Trigger warning for discussion of rape and rape culture - it’s a tough article but very important.
