"If I see three or four young black men walking down the street, I have to stop them and check their names. I want them to be afraid every time they see the police that they might get arrested."

Chief Russell Mills to the LA Times after shooting and killing black 89-year-old great grandfather Shawn Monroe at a barbecue unprovoked. Today, he walks free with no charges, despite numerous witnesses and his own admission that he enjoys terrorizing black people.

Tell me again why Black people should be okay with police when they have, since the history of our being kidnapped to this fucking country, have not EVER been about protecting us, but about terrorizing us?

Police are NOT for Black people’s safety. They are about torturing us, terrorizing us and killing us. Period. There is no safety with police. There is no peace keeping with police. They have ALWAYS been a terror to the Black community and I am tired of this fact being pushed to the wayside.

(via sourcedumal)

And Ray Kelly, when he was Commissioner in NYC said the same thing.
Arpaio has said the same thing.
This is a ROUTINE assertion that the point of the police is to be an agent of state terror. And that such terror should be all but exclusively focused on Black and Brown bodies.

(via note-a-bear)

"I want them to be afraid every time they see the police…"

And so we are…every. Single. Time. 

Congratulations, it works. 

Fuck the cops.

punkswithcleankitchens:

Veganarchism or vegan anarchism, is the political philosophy of veganism (more specifically animal rights and earth liberation) and anarchism, creating a combined praxis that is designed to be a means for social revolution. This encompasses viewing the state as unnecessary and harmful to animals, both human and non-human, whilst practicing a vegan lifestyle. It is either perceived as a combined theory, or that both philosophies are essentially the same. It is further described as an anti-speciesist perspective on green anarchism, or an anarchist perspective on animal liberation.

Flight 17 The Missing Spainards Tweets

This video contains the English translation of the interview conducted by RT Actualidad with Carlos the Spanish air traffic controller in Kiev, on May 8 2014.

Carlos has been working for the past five years as an air traffic controller in the Ukrainian capital. He tweeted that it was a military jet who shot down Malaysian Airlines MH17. His whereabouts are unknown. He is presumed missing. The interview was about his receiving death threats from Maidan activists because of his tweets of support for the pro-Russian uprising this past spring.

Picture of Carlos published by the Vietnamese site “Vietnam Plus”  http://www.vietnamplus.vn/chuyen-vien-khong-luu-tiet-lo-quan-doi-ukraine-da-ban-mh17/271658.vnp

(Note: this is a work in progress. My intention is to know who is Carlos. Where is he? Why he has disappeared?) I am a citizen  from Barcelona who is living in Lithuania.  I am using a nick-name but I am not an avatar or a fake profile. I have not any connection with Russian secret services or with Russia. I am not member of any organization, political party or agency. I try to be honest when I write about the Ukrainian conflict. I have to admit that sometimes I am biased  since I have been always a moderately left-wing person. There are millions of citizens in Catalonia or Spain that are also left-wing like me. This is why since the beginning I have been active against maidan. When I saw the people that were involved in that movement (the neo-nazis of “Pravy Sektor” and fascists of “Svoboda”) I immediatly thought that I had to do something to fight against them. Sorry for my English that is far from perfect) 

Some thoughts and information about Carlos, the Spanish aircontroller who said that was working in Borispol airport (Kiev) when the Malaysian Boeing was shot down (according to him the Boeing was shot down by jets following instructions of Kiev Junta)

Carlos gave an interview to RT en Español (May 8th 2014). Check the link below. I am following him in twitter since march 2014.One of my friends is following him since January 2014. He said that he was traffic air controller in Ukraine BEFORE the Malaysian plane tragedy happened. The account of Carlos was created in 2010. Before Maidan he posted a lot of stuff there (I read many of his posts with my own eyes….tweets about his life, travels, football, bullshitting etc….anything about politics). On friday 18th at 7 pm (Lithuanian time) I was at home watching BBC World News and it appeared a flash with the breaking news, a Boeing of Malaysia Airlines crashed somewhere near the Russian border in the Donbass region.

I went to twitter around 7.30 pm (Lithuanian time) and I saw the tweets of Carlos. I copied many of them. He was tweeting for around 2 hours. I was copying his tweets and pasted them in a note in facebook respecting his ortography and the way he wrote them (check below). Later at mid-night I tried to connect again and the account was deleted. And he “disappeared” misteriously.

Who is Carlos? I have analyzed the interview given to RT en Español. He has not foreign accent… I mean he is for sure a Spanish citizen probably from the region of Madrid, Castilla or North of Spain (he deffinetively is not from South America  or from the region of Andalucia). Where is he now? The amazing thing of Carlos is that he could not know that the Malaysian plane crashed before 7 pm since BBC World News didn’t say anything about the crash till 7 pm (Lithuanian time). And when I went to his twitter account he already had posted a lot of tweets. If he was not in Borispol aircontrol tower (and he was lying) how he was able to tweet about the Malaysian airplane crash before the news were broadcasted by the mass-media? How he could do that? Some people have been doing “investigation” about Carlos. Some magazines and sites like “Global Research” said that they discovered (by the IP) he was tweeting from London. Other Spanish magazine told that they sent a message to Carlos and he answered with a IP from Romania. I think any of them know anything about where he was tweeting from. The fact that the Spanish Embassy in Kiev didn’t know anything about “Carlos” does not prove anything. Myself I have been living in Lithuania for 8 years and the Embassy only knew about me 3 years ago when I was forced to renovate my passport. The Spanish law does not force the Spanish citizens to register in the Embassies or Consulates. This is an option that can be useful for voting or bureaucratic stuff but is not required by the Spanish authorities. The Ukrainian “authorities” (it means maidan regime) said that according to the Ukrainian law (which law? in Ukraine does not exist such a thing) a foreigner can not work as air traffic controller. But of course what are they going to tell? Also they are telling us that the airplane was shot down by the ” pro-russians terrorists” and we know that this is not true.

I don’t find any rational explanation for Carlos and his tweets.  Maybe he is just a crazy man with the incredible talent of tweeting about the events at the same time the events were happening (how he managed to tweet furiously about the Malaysian plane at the same time the events were happening if he was in London, Romania or Spain?). Where is Carlos now? If he is alive why he is hidding?  I reproduce here the note that I posted on 18/07/2014.

Also I include a link with  the interview that Carlos gave to RT en Español on May 8th 2014.

http://actualidad.rt.com/actualidad/view/127516-amenazar-controlador-espanol-ucrania-crisis

I include the snapshots of Carlos tweets in this folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mwy9zl4ys8kpgau/AACtFG3e6ltGEhnmB4pphI0Sa

I also include (at the end of the note) a translation of the tweets of Carlos the day of the tragedy (in English). One of my friends sent me the translation into English. I repeat again that when I started to write this note I simply was chosing the tweets that I considered more interesting (so I didn’t copy all of them but only the ones that I thought were interesting). But some people managed to copy all his tweets and translate them into English. All the tweets are in the folder I included above in a dropbox folder.
