Racism & the Media: White Mob Viciously Attacks, Nearly Kills Black Siblings and the Media Is Silent

From Bay Area Intifada

Written by Jabar

A plea for support by way of a Facebook post started making its rounds early Wednesday morning. Kristina Fox of Chicago posted a horrifying account with graphic photographs of a vicious beating that nearly killed her and her brother Marcus Fox. The following is the full post from Kristina Fox:

From Kristina Fox:

“On the morning of Saturday, May 30, 2015, my little brother, Marcus Fox, my daughter’s father, Darrius Walton, and myself were sitting in [Chicago/Canaryville’s] Taylor Lauridsen Park conversing with 3 Caucasian people we had just met (Courtney, Kevin, and Jodie). Everyone was having a nice time. Approximately 7-9 more Caucasian people arrived in the park.

My little brother being the social butterfly he is introduced himself and began…

“Pigs are Haram!” – Undercover Police Confronted on May Day

bayareaintifada

Oakland, Co-produced by WeCopwatch and Bay Area Intifada

This past May Day, autonomous/anarchist people of color held a contingent of about 75 people within the Sin Fronteras’ Immigrant Solidarity march. Although the contingent had a clear non-reformist and unapologetic stance about immigration, they spent the day in solidarity with those struggling against unjust labor and immigration policies.

The mood of the march was joyous and celebratory. During the march, two Muslim anarchists spotted large men who seemed out of place and were paying too much attention to the group. One cop was snapping photos of the Muslims within the contingent.

The Muslim anarchists confronted the men who were clearly undercover police, stopped them from taking photos, and with the support of the rest of the autonomous/anarchist contingent sent them on their way with chants of “Pigs Out!” and “Pigs are Haraam!” Embarrassed and exposed, the…

Cops put a hood over woman’s head and bind her ankles and wrists. Two more shine flashlights in cop watcher’s camera to obstruct recording.

mission copwatch

A copwatcher shared this report with us back in November. Apologies for the delay, and we’re still working on getting the footage…

this happened around 2am this morning on Folsom between 20 and 21st in the street.  I am looking into how to file a complaint with the OCC.  it looks like going in is the way to go.

woman was screaming outside for too long.  jumped out of bed to make sure they were ok.  didn’t even put on shoes.  stepped outside and just went in my pjs down the block toward the screams.  saw squad cars.  darted down the street directly to them.  two men walking by mocking the woman’s screams.  not even showing concern (what is wrong with people?)  scared faces of my neighbors in doorways.  saw the small bodied person with a bag on her head being held down to the hood of a cop car by…

It’s Time for Black Liberation, Not Liberalism

i listened to my computer read it to me . i was pleasantly (and only mildly) surprised at the penultimate paragraph, as it is exactly what i just said to another person last week . i talked with him about me being unwilling to work within hierarchical structure, and i literally used the word wildfire quite a few times in describing how the movement needs to grow

hierarchical patterns only replicate the problems we already experience . linear thought and growth leaves out most of the world

wildfire

Dictate

As people begin to ask themselves how we can make this movement sustainable we must take into account the various layers of our struggle. We must make sure that we are working towards more than just momentary change, but for true liberation of all black people. The usual route of playing the game of respectable politics needs to stop.  Organizations and community leaders are beginning to take it upon themselves to speak for the movement.  With their list of demands, their lectures on the proper way to protest and the condemnations they give of all uncontrolled actions that have been taking place. Their solutions are focused on policy change that is dependent on institutional will. It is important that as black people we make sure that our political tactics are not being dominated by white supremacy.


As we all know, no justice was found for the Brown family or…

Man Down: D. C. Metro Police Attack Wheelchair-Bound Man

Mut(e)iny

A video depicting two Washington, D. C. Metro police officers throwing a man in a wheelchair to the ground has gone viral. Once the man is on the ground, the officers handcuff him and stand over him as he bleeds. When the people passing by, some of whom recognize the man, angrily question the officers about what is happening, the officers ultimately dismiss them for “getting loud.”

According to a Washington Post article, the victim was a homeless man who the Metro police officers saw drinking an alcoholic beverage. The article goes on to say that the man “refused to comply” with the officers’ attempt to issue him a citation and that he ultimately “resisted arrest.”

Obviously, I have way too much bias as it relates to this story. I’m physically challenged, and I attend college in D. C. So, please excuse me while I go off…

Guns don’t kill people, living in south Stockton kills people

so well said, that i don’t have anything else to add!

Reclaiming the Title

As we mentioned earlier, Mike Fitzgerald took it upon himself to try and defend Stockton police in the shooting death of Melecio Arquines. You know, the guy who was shot by police in his south Stockton home while trying to protect his house from a perceived threat. Yeah, this should be good. Let’s FJM this bitch.

“…it is possible to credit Stockton police for immediately releasing Hernandez’s name. Some past regimes circled the wagons and treated public scrutiny as hostile.”

Credit Stockton police for what? Only partially stonewalling the media as opposed to completely doing so? Pete Smith can’t tell us if Hernandez even identified himself as an officer, let alone whether or not he ordered him to drop his weapon. We don’t know that bare bones, basic information, but we know his name! SPD is like an open book!

“It is also possible to credit the victim’s brother, Reginael…

free alabama movement

A prisoner’s movement is building inside multiple Alabama state prisons. The prisoners have taken up the strategy of non-violence and recording each other on smuggled-in cell phones. The video interviews are being posted on youtube (links below). In the videos, the prisoners speak of deplorable conditions, slave labor, prisons being a continuation of slavery and many candid stories from their lives inside and outside the cement walls of Alabama’s prisons:
