gravediggs:

"The Black Panthers have never viewed such paramilitary groups as the Ku Klux Klan or the Minutemen as particularly dangerous. The real danger comes from highly organized Establishment forces -the local police, the National Guard, and the United States military. They were the ones who devastated Watts and killed innocent people. In comparison to them the paramilitary groups are insignificant. In fact, these groups are hardly organized at all. It is the uniformed men who are dangerous and who come into our communities every day to commit violence against us, knowing that the laws will protect them.” - Huey P. Newton, Sacramento and the “Panther Bill”

Let’s tell the federal government that the Lakota tribes of South Dakota deserve the Title IV Planning Grants! Keep Sharing and Become a MEMBER: http://lakotalaw.org/donate-new . 8 of the 9 Lakota tribes of South Dakota have submitted their Title IV Planning Grant Applications. Now is the time that we must demonstrate our seriousness in creating foster care for Lakota children that is run by each Lakota tribe. The federal government will decide to approve or reject these applications by mid-October, and until then, we will be contacting the Department of Interior and Department of Justice to back us in our desire for the Department of Health and Human Services to approve these grants. Each of these grants that are approved will assist each tribe in creating the infrastructure that is integral in constructing their own Child and Family Planning Programs. However, without the assistance of our generous supporters, we would not have been able to reach this important milestone.

This is so so important

"Hands up, don’t shoot" has become one of the primary rallying cries for those in Ferguson, Mo., protesting the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown last week.
The slogan has now spread to Baltimore, with a two part mural on the boarded-up back of a liquor store at the corner of East Preston Street and Greenmount Avenue. “Hands up” is on one level of the building, while a shadowy figure with arms raised is on a lower level.

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out.

chauvinistsushi:

Telling the people of Ferguson to take this anger and “channel” it to the polls, i.e elect officials that reflect them, is so fucking beside the point and victim blaming. This is ignoring disenfranchisement of the black voter (racism) and the poor voter (can’t take time off…
