This mayday remember, friends don’t let friends get arrested. Take ‘em back.
in case yall been sleeping here’s a reminder that we just shut down Mall Of America, the largest mall in the USA, to protest the wrongful deaths of young black men by police.
“the practice of capitalism and the greatest commercial holiday of the year are more important than your right to a peaceful protest”
60 year old historian Martin Bühler (who identified himself to the press, I do not identify activists without consent) appears to ‘photobomb’ a lot of media images of the G20 in Hamburg. In reality he is a long time observer documenting police brutality. In Hamburg he chose to cultivate the most non-activist ‘white bystander in a suit with a bike’ look he could manage and casually walked in front of police. As police slowed down or interrupted attacks and waited for the ‘bystander’ to get out of the way (being caught on camera trashing what look like bystanders is bad press after all), activists had time to regroup or retreat.
This is literally the most amazing protest sign I have ever seen. [Source: https://twitter.com/ShannonDowney/status/821926038687154176 ]
