5 years ago TODAY, hundreds of militarized police descended on a small camp of Indigenous water protectors that stood directly in the path of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The officers forcibly evicted residents and arrested 142 people. Medics and journalists were also arrested.
This violent confrontation between law enforcement and the water protectors showed in glaring detail the COORDINATION between federal, local, state police & private security in suppressing protest.

It's important to remember WHY people were protesting.
This pipeline, like so many other pipelines, cut through land the pipeline company didn't have the authority to claim. Treaties were (as they've always been) completely ignored. In this case, the 1868 Treaty of Fort Laramie.

I didn't vote for 45. Still? This is the only news I'm actually happy about. why?
Joe Biden won & Kamala Harris made history on multiple fronts winning Vice President.


I’m not celebrating. I want to.


But here’s the problem as I see it:

ARMED supporters of the current President are in >
the streets of Colorado Springs at City Hall yelling about “how Joe Biden’s family stole the election,” and how they plan to fight on, and to “stop the steal.” (Source)…

These people are angry

@Zezunja Wat imho het pijnlijks is, is dat "racisme" als thema STEEDS wordt "weggelachen" door de "klassieke" partijen:

Rousseau (SPA) die deportatie op tafel gooit,
Lachaert (OVLD) die Zwarte Piet verdedigt

@Zezunja Racistische standpunten verkondigen is ZO normaal geworden dat we het niet eens meer opmerken

NVA speelt daarin een akelige rol door hetzelfde te doen als de GOP pre-Trump: een "vernis" over het racisme, zodat je je als racist niet hoeft te "schamen"

@Zezunja Wat me enorm stoort is dat er GEEN ENKELE GROTE PARTIJ dit doorheeft, en er een ANTWOORD op durft te formuleren, bvb door het FLAGRANTE racisme bij NVA aan te kaarten en publiek te maken!

Niet alleen geef je de boodschap aan racisten dat ze niet langer welkom zijn…

I'll be livetweeting this rescheduled #Socialism2020 panel w/@jamie_elizabeth & @_ericblanc at 7pm ET:
Eric made the case that Bernie's campaign (& other "class struggle elections") legitimized socialism in a new way. Jamie is much more ambivalent than Eric about the role it has played & its aftereffects, in the larger task of establishing socialism; we'll only know in retrospect.
Jamie's an "electoral skeptic, or electoral agnostic," though she did volunteer in NH. Bernie showed how far the left has to go; "Bernie tried to reverse-engineer a mass movement". Warns of a depoliticization that the left should fight against, that a better world isn't possible.

1/ I have a degree in Astrophysics and two degrees in physics. I am Indigenous and Chicana. As an indigenous scientist absolutely in love with space and our ways of studying it, it has been very difficult watching what is happening to #MaunaKea and #TMTShutdown #ProtectMaunaKea
2/ Indigenous scientists walk in many worlds and understand the challenges of bringing our culture with us into colonial structured spaces. Our people have always been scientists. Our people have always studied the stars. This is not science vs culture. #ProtectMaunaKea
3/ our sacred spaces should hold just as much value as the Vatican or the Western Wall. It would never even be a question to think of desecrating that space in the pursuit of science and yet Hawaiian elders are forced to put their bodies in the path of trucks to #ProtectMaunaKea

Say you live on #StandingRock on the ND side. You have kids, a job, you're a busy, functional, modern day Native American — but where you live doesn't have a street address, & you've never needed one as you have PO box.

Now, North Dakota says you can't vote.
But surely, you think, there's a way around it, right? There is. You first have to call your district's coordinator (but remember, not all districts are the same). You may have to call around. You finally get ahold of someone. You describe, in detail, where your house is.
The coordinator assigns you an address that you can use on your voter registration. But they need to give you a confirmation letter for the address (we don't know if they mail it or give it to you right away, that is unclear). You then can use the address on your documents.
