There’s a city where the police is the law. The name of the city is Hong Kong.

// 沒有大台的抗爭 並非沒有目的的野貓行動 而是人人都可以成為領袖 昨天看著他害害羞羞的 不斷號召群眾叫口號唱歌 慌忙的問接下來該喊什麼 我想這夜對他來說 比起上什麼 生涯規劃領袖訓練 來得更有效吧 領袖的誕生從沒一步登天 大家都在不斷全面進化 只要每人做多步 只要你有心 我們都是主宰運動的共同體 #1014

“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” — George Orwell 1984 . . . Or perhaps you don’t...

🎗 enviem força desde Nova York 🎗 Avui estaba a classe amb llagrimes als ulls, enganxada al mobil miran les noticies del que estaba passan a Catalunya. La rabia i frustracio de veure injusticia rere injusticia i no poguer ferhi res. No poguer caminar amb els meus. Per sort, els Catalans estem a tot arreu, i avui els de Nova York ens hem unit de nou per donar suport a la nostre nacio. El que ha passat avui ha deixat a molta gent destroçada. Pero farem servir aquest dolor i aquesta rabia per tirar endavan i acabar amb aquesta injusticia.

This is currently the fucking front page of the official US State Department website. Together with Barr’s dark ages speech at Notre Dame and Mike Pence’s ancient christian cult position... We are witnessing the consolidation of Christian fascism in power. This is a key part of trumps American fascism... theses fucking zealots believe they are on a mission from God and they will fight to the death for it. We are confronted by a simple choice... Will we continue to be spectators to all this? Or will we rise up starting October 19 and drive this fucking racist authoritarian regime from Power? #outnow #impeachthemotherfucker #americastandup #democracynow #constitutionfirst #countryoverparty #1stamendment #seperationofchurchandstate #fakeamericans

In Ecuador, two weeks of massive indigenous-led protests have forced the government to cancel planned austerity measures and withdraw from a $4.2 billion loan package from the International Monetary Fund. The major victory came after televised negotiations between the Ecuadorian government and indigenous groups on Sunday. At least seven people were killed in the protests. Over 2,000 more were arrested or wounded. Celebrations broke out in Ecuador’s capital Quito Sunday night after the deal was reached. This is Marco Casagallo.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Marco Casagallo: “It’s a celebration for us, because we can rest easy after so many days of deaths, massacres and other things that Ecuador has gone through.”⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #ecuador #revolution #indigenouspeoplesmarch⠀ #democracynow #democracy #democracyinaction #miracles #indigenouspeoplesday #freedom #peopleoverprofit

Celebrating Indigenous People's Day! I spent the weekend with my Native family on the Navajo reservation. This photo of the Hopi Palhik Mana Dance was taken at the Tuba City Fair.

It’s been a long time coming. #indigenouspeoplesday . “Christopher Columbus arrived in the Bahamas 527 years ago this week, unleashing a brutal genocide that killed tens of millions of Native people across the hemisphere. Well, cities and states across the United States are acknowledging this devastating history by rejecting the federal holiday of Columbus Day and celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day instead, to honor centuries of indigenous resistance. Alaska, Maine, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont and Wisconsin have all officially recognized Indigenous Peoples’ Day. So have more than 130 cities and counties, from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Dallas to smaller places like Livingston, Kentucky, and Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Last week, Washington, D.C., became one of the latest to recognize the holiday. Washington, D.C., the District of Columbia, takes its name from Columbus. In a statement before the vote, D.C. Councilmember At-Large David Grosso said, “Columbus Day was officially designated as a federal holiday in 1937 despite the fact that Columbus did not discover North America, despite the fact that millions of people were already living in North America upon his arrival in the Americas, and despite the fact that Columbus never set foot on the shores of the current United States. Columbus enslaved, colonized, mutilated and massacred thousands of Indigenous People in the Americas,”.- Amy Goodman for #democracynow 👊🏾

“When you have a house that’s built on a crumbling foundation, you’re gonna get cracks in your walls, your floors will be uneven, your windows will become misaligned. . This is what’s happening to our house, and our binary two-party system is screaming at each other about what color paint to paint over the cracks in the wall, what carpet to lay on the floor, and what window to put in the crooked window sill. . But nobody is going into the basement to examine the crumbling foundation and make an assessment of how that needs to be fixed. . Most Americans believe that the USA is systemically racist, sexist, and white supremacist IN SPITE of our foundations; I would argue that the U.S. is racist, sexist, white supremacist BECAUSE OF the foundation… . It is deeply problematic that there’s nothing in the Constitution about our collective value of life. This is why corporations can get sued for not maximizing the profit of their shareholders, but then we need extra regulations to make sure they don’t destroy the environment. The assumption of the Constitution is that exploitation and profit is the goal… . This isn’t just about adding a new policy or doing something slightly different. If we don’t deal with the underlying worldview and make adjustments to the foundations, we’re not going to solve the problem.” . –Mark Charles (@wirelesshogan), an Independent 2020 Candidate for the President of the United States on @GreenDreamerPodcast EP179. .

Spain in another shame, what an oddly beautiful rhyme. Police losing patience against Catalan separatists in another peaceful civil disobedience act, today taking place at the airport after the deliberate sentence against democratically elected politicians: 100 years of jail for letting people vote. There is no democracy in Spain and the European Union looks away. Dignity and dialogue shall come back. Spain has completely lost it, it’s rupture is real and just a matter of time to be fulfilled. #freecatalanpoliticalprisoners #democracynow #republicacatalana #wakeupeurope

Police deliberately poured bottles of distilled water into the drain to get back at protestors who had used these bottles as road blocks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some journalists managed to save some of the remaining water after the police left and distributed it amongst frontline staff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Access to safe water is a global crisis: 502,000 people die each year from diarrhea—caused by unsafe drinking water. 2.1 billion people have no access to safely managed drinking water. 159 million people get their drinking water directly from surface water sources. 263 million must travel more than 30 minutes daily to collect their water. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Repost @we_are_hongkongers ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #antielab #antielabhk #standwithhk #freehk #hkprotest #democracynow #climatestrike #climatechange #enviornment #environmentalist #extinctionrebellion #earth #savewater #cleanwater ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Raising awareness: @extinctionrebellion @greenpeace @greenpeace_hk @unenvironment @annehidalgo @c40cities @leonardodicaprio @nrdc_org @worldresources @usclimatestrike @globalclimatestrike

Election season is almost here! On Thursday, October 17th, @nashuaccgram will be hosting Democracy Now, a campus-wide event featuring interactive art, music, presentations on democracies around the world and more. Don’t miss it – it’s free!

It is clear that passing The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act will not be the end of this turmoil. And leaning on a foreign country for help is controversial. - Note that we Hong Kong people, those who wanna dig in and fight, are up against a tyrannical regime. Carrie Lam is nothing more than a presumptuous puppet, trapped in her presidency. - Ever heard of the story “Zhuge Liang Summoning the East Wind”. In my view, The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act served exactly like the East Wind. We Hong Kong people need the wind at our back to encourage us to charge forward. - Let us see if the tide is going to turn in our favour.
