[Tweet from the FBI at 5:47pm EDT on June 1, 2020: The FBI is seeking information and digital media depicting individuals...

i know there’s a lot going on but ICE are now one step closer to literally creating gas chambers. they are spraying a chemical called HDQ neutral roughly 100 times a day, every 15 minutes at the adelanto detention center (one of the biggest in the country). people are getting rashes, headaches, their insides are bleeding, etc. the guards are wearing gloves and masks but the detainees have NOTHING. and here’s a quick reminder - america inspired the nazis to create gas chambers when they gassed latino people during the 1917 bath riots. 

here’s a petition to sign. it’s close to it’s goal. if there’s anything else we can do to help i’ll update this post.

I don’t have the words to properly explain how horrifying this is. In April, the advocacy group Freedom For Immigrants published a report about unsanitary conditions at the detention center, where the immigrants were made to clean the facilities with only water, or shampoo. According to their report, there were sick detainees there - possibly with COVID-19, but it’s unclear since they weren’t being tested - and the conditions could easily lead to a situation in which the virus exploded among those there.

The guards are spraying this disinfectant in retaliation for the report. To be clear - HDQ is an industrial-strength disinfectant, which according to the manufacturer is “harmful if inhaled” and “causes severe skin burns and serious eye damage.” The guards are spraying it on everything every 15-30 minutes, according to sources, and immigrants in the center have already experienced severe symptoms including blisters, rashes, bleeding, fainting, breathing difficulties, headaches, stomach pain, and nausea.

And let’s be real - ICE doesn’t give a shit, either about protecting these people or about preventing a COVID outbreak. ICE, according to their own reports, currently has 25,911 people in custody, of which only 2,670 have been tested. 1,392 of those were positive. In simple terms - less than 10% of detainees have been tested. Of those, more than half are positive. We cannot estimate how many sick people ICE is currently holding, or how many more will get sick without any kind of prevention or care.

ICE is killing people through neglect, and when they dared complain - they started gassing them.

Unfortunately, with Trump in the white house, petitions aren’t doing much. What we can do, however, is donate to the advocacy group that is bringing these things to light, allowing them to continue their work and hopefully free more immigrants. Their donation page is here. Please spread this.

3. give out supplies to protestors

people need supplies to protest safely, and even if they bring supplies with them, they can often run out. if you’re able, stock up and hand them out to people protesting. for more supplies to donate, see the “george floyd action” google docs link in section 5.

water bottles (dehydration and heatstroke are not things people should have to deal with alongside bastard cops. if the police in your area are particularly violent or known to use tear gas, get the ones with the sports cap/suction-thing/etc so people can use them as emergency eye-flushes.) snacks (make sure to take into account that people have allergies of all sorts. foods will have a little label that says “may contain” and then list any potential allergens. write the allergens on the ziploc (or any container you use) in permanent marker, or better yet, write the snacks included in the pack.) masks (don’t forget there’s still a pandemic going on. also it will aid in deterring facial recognition when the police try to track down protestors,  also part two, if the cops use tear gas, wearing a mask (with the combination of a scarf or bandana) will lessen the adverse effects. lessen, not stop.) bandanas, scarves, etc. and goggles (ski goggles, swimming goggles, etc.) (see above for explanation on the scarves. same goes for the goggles. anti–tear gas and anti–facial recognition.) clean shirts (for people who are heavily gassed. also helps deter recognition through clothing.) wound care supplies (band-aids, packets of neosporin packets or a similar antibiotic, alcohol wipes, etc.; if you can, decant bactine into those little travel bottles.) a sharpie or another type of marker (for writing bail numbers or emergency contacts on arms, hands, etc. it’s not enough to have your city’s bail fund number stored on your phone; the police won’t give it to you to look it up. give people a marker so they can write it down, preferably not washable so it isn’t easily removed.)

IMPORTANT: KNOWING FIRST AID

tear gas: if you’re hit, get out as fast and as soon as you can. take anyone you can with you. the longer you’re in the gas, the harder it will be for you to see, and it can irritate your airways, making it hard to breathe. if you’re hit, don’t run; it’ll only make things worse on your lungs. when you leave the area, take a cold shower. don’t use hot water (it will only reactivate the agent); don’t bathe (it will only spread the CS around). (source 1) (source 2) (cdc fact sheet on tear gas)

move them to a clean and ventilated area where it’s as safe as possible. ask them if they’re wearing contact lenses. have them remove it. if they’re wearing glasses, rinse it with water. solution of half liquid antacid, half water. spray from the inside going out, with the head tilted back and slightly towards the side being rinsed. if they say it’s okay, open the eye slightly while doing this. (source)

bullet wounds: the most important thing is to stop the bleeding. be sure to check for an exit wound and cover that as well. treat both wounds, but treat the worse one first.

stop the bleed (youtube video by uc san diego health) first aid in active shooting scenarios making a tourniquet (a commercial tourniquet is best, but improvised ones can work as well if done properly; the most important things to remember is that tourniquets are for limb injuries and are not meant for the head or torso and that they have to be very tightly wound on the injury.) how to apply pressure dressings

4. be a source of information

be responsible with this. people’s lives are at stake. that being said, the media is a fucking joke and the best way to get accurate information in a grassroots rebellion is amongst ourselves. record everything, but if you are going to share any information at all, be sure to blur people’s faces.

remember to keep phones OFF unless absolutely necessary. cell phone towers, stingrays, location notifs can all be used to track you and other protestors. don’t fuck around. if your phone must be on, keep it on airplane mode as often as possible and only communicate using encrypted methods. no, snapchat doesn’t count.

any white at a protest who tries to go against police and deliberately provoke a response from them is not to be trusted and does not have the safety of black and brown people in mind.

there is a good chance that they are police too. if anyone, especially a white dude, ever randomly gets your attention and conspiratorially tries to convince you to jump a police officer, then dude is a cop. They have been using this technique and script for at least 30 years.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_provocateur

Check their fucking shoes. They’re always too afraid that their little toesies will be hurt so they’ll usually still be rocking the exact same boots as the guys on the other side. This was what gave the cops away when they provoked riots in Toronto a while back.

@talesofalamia, remember when I pointed out the shoes of the two well-dressed informants near us?

Similar note: IME, unmarked cruisers have five distinguishing traits:1. They’re one of the department-issue models.2. They’re always white, black, or dark blue.3. They always look like they just rolled out of a car wash.4. Usually rocking restricted plates.5. Most reliable if present but hardest to spot: Their mirrors are bulkier, to fit the light rigs in.

In Austin the under cover officer that tried to convince me to set a cop car on fire had a convincing fake beard.

Be careful out there and read up on common tactics used against protestors before going.

You can usually see the stealth lights if you look into the grill.

Besides the old obvious as fuck Crown Victoria, be suspicious of 2013+ Ford Taurus and Explorer, 2006+ Dodge Charger and Dakota, 06-13 Chevy Impala, 11+ Chevy Caprice and both the Tahoe and Suburban.

Look for oversize mirrors, plugs on the roof and/or A pillar, lights inside the grill, extraneous lights inside the headlight assembly, lights tucked up behind the rear view mirror, steel wheels with or without wheel covers, and plugs or short antennas on the trunk lid.

My dad’s an undercover pig, so more info yall might not know:

some lights are small look alike extra mirrors on the side mirrors, and theyre hella easy to spot if youre looking; Ive caught my dad driving behind me a dozen times bc of it lights can fit clipped to the sun visors tinted windows, but not blacked out the models of cars above are obv sus, but be careful anyway bc cops will raid drug dealers and are allowed to keep “forfeiture” which includes a dealer’s car up, but only for 3 years and then they legally have to sell it; brand new cars or only 1–2 years old that look constantly washed (departments often get free car washes at the dealerships they buy fleet from) are sus af beware anyone wearing “cop brands,” which are companies that cater to cops/military like 5-11, Vertex, the like; check watches too bc most ppl cant afford/dont want a goddamn G-Shock idk if I’m explaining it adequately, but the Cop Stance; the squared shoulders and slightly wide, feet apart stance, it gives em away as off duty a lot imo and it can become unconscious even if theyre trying to incite a fight, better believe theyre conceal carrying; fat guys will have it in a pocket (thats why u be wary of brands bc theyre good at their job), skinny guys might have it down their front, and women are usually at hip know what facial hair is allowed at the local department; if they grow it to look less like a cop, some departments still dont allow full beards, some dont allow even goatees, etc (higher up the chain, less likely it matters, but a lieutenant or captain is unlikely to have the job of inciting the riot) steer clear of a porn stache I have 0 idea why, but almost every cop Ive ever met will say “shut it down” in a dozen different circumstances they often have call signs even tho radios are good quality these days, and they always sound like a military TV show’s approx of a call sign: Flip, Clue, etc computers are still often in undercover cars, and theyre bulky mfs the back of an undercover car is likely way weighed down; gun safes, some have half a cage, reinforced seats, gear, equipment, body armor, etc, and I can always tell how it sits calling a buddy by their last name? cop beaded chain necklace under their shirt? bulky ass trifold wallet? badge

Be careful out there yall.

HOW TO DONATE TO BLM WHEN YOU HAVE NO MONEY

a black woman named zoe amira posted a video on youtube. this video is an hour long and filled with art and music from black creators. it has a ton of ads, and in result will rack up a ton of revenue. 100% of the ad revenue from the video will be dispersed between various blm organizations, including bail-out funds for protesters. it will be split between the following, dependent on necessity

brooklyn bail fund minnesota freedom fund atlanta action network columbus freedom fund louisville community bail fund chicago bond black visions collective richmond community bail fund the bail project inc nw com bail fund philadelphia bail fund the korchhinski-parquet family gofundme george floyd’s family gofundme blacklivesmatter.com reclaim the block aclu

turn off your adblocker and put the video on repeat. do not skip ads. let it play on loop whether you’re listening or not. mute the tab if you need to focus elsewhere. but let. it. play.

youtube will donate to blm for you.

please, please reblog. for people who don’t have money to spare, this is incredibly important information to have.

Now this is initiative in action. Signal boost!

Consider not looping it, it'll get marked as spam. Shake it up between loops.

Apparently, according to kpop twitter who OBVSLY KNOW THEIR SHIT, you need to stagger loops of the video with like 3 to 5 other videos, but not always the same video. So watch it in incognito (fast way to disable all your blockers) and then pull up a few other videos of any length, and return to the original video.

V A C C I N A T E

for people who are unaware of why the riots in minneapolis started happening, here’s the facts:

it wasn’t george floyd’s protesters who started reacting violently; it was the cops. the protest was peaceful until the cops showed up in riot gear, and started using water cannons, followed up by tear gas and rubber bullets. i got videos from friends who were there, of people screaming and running away from the cops shooting the water cannons, rubber bullets and throwing tear gas at them. they were even shooting at the protesters dragging people away to get medical attention. speaking of medical attention, dispatch refused to provide any medical attention to the protesters. people literally had to drive their bleeding friends to the hospital because they refused to send ambulances. cops are using non-lethal weapons in a lethal way. they shot rubber bullets into people’s heads and injured them. there’s dozens of photos of protesters with bleeding head wounds from the rubber bullets. multiple people used police scanners and heard that there were undercover cops pretending to be violent protesters who were throwing rocks and whatnot at the police, with dozens of eyewitness accounts confirming that information. the person who instigated all the chaos last night (it was a fire at an autozone) with the looting and burning buildings is highly suspected to be an undercover cop pretending to be a protester, because the video of him keeps getting taken down. protesters tried to stop him but couldn’t because he had a hammer and they were scared for their safety. the cops jammed cell phone towers and cut live streams to interrupt broadcasts and to prevent people from seeing what was really going on and who actually started the violence. the cops lied about protesters being armed and about throwing rocks and are literally trying to continue the violence happening and yet no one is holding them accountable for that. and during all this, the cop that murdered george floyd still hasn’t been arrested. he has had more than ten complaints filed against him and was involved in three other civilian shootings in the past. and yet he’s still out free along with his three other buddies involved, probably sitting on his couch while all this chaos is happening.

so don’t get it twisted. the cops just want to change the narrative to make it look like they’re the wounded and righteous party, when they’re the ones who started reacting violently in the first place and are still acting violently. so don’t you ever forget who started this tragedy and murdered someone, and who are continuing to react to the situation with violence. 

All the media has been covering is the looting especially at target and how out of hand it was. While that was happening the cops outside the 3rd precinct (across the street from lake street target) were tear gassing, macing, and shooting rubber bullets and the non violent protesters. The protesters used the target shopping carts to build a barricade between them and the cops to protect themselves

for people who are unaware of why the riots in minneapolis started happening, here’s the facts: it wasn’t george floyd’s...

Literally just don't talk to the cops if they arrest you, do not do not do not explain your side of the story, it doesn't matter what you say, you won't be calm, you won't have a clear head, you will fuck up and say something that can incriminate you. You have the right to plead the fifth amendment. even if you are innocent of a crime, because if it's something that could result in your conviction, you have the right to plead the fifth.

So if you're falsely accused, or guilty and you just don't want to go to jail, plead the fifth to the police. You talking means they can extrapolate whatever they want from you and leave out what they don't, and convict you. Any and every lawyer will tell you this. Some ex-cops will even tell you this

  It’s worth noting you do have to explicitly invoke your right to remain silent, because the legal system is horrible. If you don’t explicitly invoke your right to remain silent, your silence in response to questions can actually be cited in court of law as evidence of guilt.

    You generally shouldn’t talk to cops at all, but you general script here is “Am I under arrest/being detained?”. If they answer yes, you have to say “I’m invoking my right to a publicly provided lawyer, and my right to remain silent.” (something similar to that, but try to keep it relatively formal, cops have argued before that incorrect phrasing means the right didn’t apply. See the “lawyer dog” case). And then you have to remain silent. If you talk at all, you’ve waived your right to remain silent, and you must reinvoke it when you’re done talking for it to apply. Cops are sneaky bastards and will try to get you to talk with friendly conversation or small things, don’t fall for it. If necessary, repeat “I have invoked my right to remain silent”. If you’ve invoked your right against self-incrimination, cops are not legally allowed to use your silence as evidence or suggestion of guilt in a court of law, and your publicly provided lawyer will know this. Also, no matter how under-funded and shit public lawyers can be, you do want yours.

    It’s worth noting that the right to remain silent and the fifth are kind of distinct in practice. Your right to remain silent/non-incrimination applies in police custody. As a further note to that, cops will often ask questions to people not in custody specifically so they don’t have to deal with those rights- the correct answer to this is to not talk to cops. Never talk to a cop unless you’re detained, and then only to invoke your right to silence. The Fifth is invoked in court, and is the right to refuse to testify during your own trial. It’s invoked unconditionally- if you refuse to testify against yourself, you can’t testify for yourself. You can’t be a witness at all. If you testify for yourself, the prosecution can ask you whatever they want, and you do have to answer.

   TLDR: America’s legal system is full of weird loopholes because cops are tricky bastards that can and will argue any absurd thing if it means they can put more people in prison. Don’t get tripped up by them.

here’s a law lecturer explaining why you should never talk to cops. basic summary: don’t talk to cops. if you do talk to cops, and they mishear/misunderstand/misremember you, it becomes their word against yours in court and you will lose. if you make even one tiny mistake while talking to the cops, it can invalidate everything else you say. ASK FOR A LAWYER AND INVOKE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT.

For anyone who doesn’t have 46 minutes to watch the video, a couple highlights:

Something I didn’t know: That whole ‘Anything you say can and will be used against you’ thing? There’s no vice-versa. It literally cannot legally be used for you. If it’d be in your favor, it’s hearsay. He only talks for half of the time, giving equal time afterwards to a sheriff in attendance. The first thing the sheriff says when his turn comes up is, essentially, “everything he just said is correct.” The sheriff’s explanations, while not incriminating, are very eye-opening. He walks through how his preferred process of dealing with a suspect in custody is to read them their rights and then quickly say “now before you do that,” and talk to them without having their lawyer present. The one part of the lecture he takes issue with is any of this resulting in putting innocent people in jail. The way he repeats ‘I don’t put innocent people in jail’ almost sounds like he’s trying to convince himself.

Literally just don't talk to the cops if they arrest you, do not do not do not explain your side of the story, it doesn't matter...

Multiple accounts nation wide of white “protestors” coming into cities they don’t live in and destroying property is being spread black and brown protestors are being ignored while begging them to stop, all the white people in these photos and videos seem to follow a similar dress code this is NOT just happening in minneapolis this has been recorded in over 20 cities so far, do not let these people spin the narrative, these white protestors are not on the side of poc and are inciting violence and destroying our communities

Another thread of pictures and videos of white people destroying property and setting fire to buildings / cars agaisnt protestors wishes there is something sinister happening and whether or not these people are involved with the police does not matter at this point, they are getting poc arrested in mass and attacked because of their behavior

can i add that people should not buy any attempts to claim that these are “outside agitators” as this is a classic play by the system in an attempt to turn white people against the protests, that cops have been caught on video looting and destroying property in false flag ops, and that contrary to the idea that these are leftist anarchists, they’re much more likely to be white supremacists attempting to incite a race war

i’m not saying there aren’t white leftist protesters who are getting overzealous, but the fact that these dress codes are so similar on top of this info means it’s likely these are people dedicated to ignoring and using black lives for their own agendas

unrelated to last post but topical: as the child of lawyers, I got one thing drilled into me from age 10: don’t fucken talk to cops. never talk to cops.

Don’t talk to cops about insignificant things, it’s a trick to get you into a talking-mode to gradually work to more sensitive questions.

Don’t talk to workers inside a police station (medics, cleaners, people bringing bitter cold coffee), assume they’re all cops.

If you absolutely must talk to a medic, deliver your essential medical information to them in one sentence and go back to ‘no comment’ after that. Do not get in a conversation.

Don’t accept a lawyer offered by the cops or a lawyer you don’t know. ONLY take the lawyer provided by the activist organization you’re part of and ask to see their ID. Do not believe people who claim they represent the same firm. If in doubt, keep your mouth shut. 

I've been detained. I've been arrested. I know the instinct when you're around other human beings is to try to relate to them on a human level. I get it, being detained is scary, you're in cuffs, maybe you're in the back of a squad car, or in a van in the event of mass arrest. The first thing you're going to want to do is just... Talk to someone. Anyone. To remember that we're all human here, or to try to win them over.

Don't. Cops aren't people. They aren't your friends, and they aren't there to protect you. They're the bloodhounds of the state. Every comment is a hint, every question has ulterior motives, and they are just trying to pump your for information.

The coffee is a trick, your one call is monitored, they are not your fucking friends. You're an enemy combatant and every single interaction you have with them is a component of an interrogation. Close your mouth, ask for legal counsel, and always remember, cops aren't just allowed to lie to you, it's one of their favorite things to do.

you cannot win a cop over. you cannot befriend a cop. a cop does not see you as a person, they see you as a perpetrator - you should view them the same.

Also be careful about anyone in the same arrest van / cell as you because- cops are known to put undercovers in cells to interrogate the arrested- everything is monitored all the time

Comfort and support your comrades, but do not share personal details or discuss anything that could be used against you.

if you want to help bail out protesters but don’t know where to send your money — act blue put together a secure page that will split your donation between 30+ bail funds across the US

if you want to help bail out protesters but don’t know where to send your money — act blue put together a secure page that will...

Here is a compilation of places to donate (IF you can, simply reblogging and sharing this can help) and petition to sign. I found these websites and organizations on twitter.

DONATIONS

THE MINNESOTA  FREEDOM FUND: Donate to this to collect funds to pay jail bonds for the protesters who get arrested. BLACK LIVES MATTER: An organization fighting for the BLM movement. Donate if you can.  BLACK VISIONS MN: an organization that is led by Black, Queer and Trans people. Donate if you can. NAACP Legal Defense Fund: Fights for the overall equality fight. Donate if you can.

PETITIONS

Willie Simmons has spent 38 years in prison for a $9 robbery. He had two prior convictions similar to robbery that he served time for. He was prosecuted under the Alabama Habitual Offender law and was given a life sentence for his third strike - stealing 9 (NINE) dollars. Sign his petition.  Breonna Taylor was killed by police who were conducting an UNANNOUNCED drug raid, where they gave no request to enter. They bashed her door and entered, shooting her EIGHT times. They were in the WRONG HOUSE.  George Floyd was killed by a police officer who knelt on his neck and suffocated him to death, after George pleaded with the officer and told him he couldn’t breathe. The officer had pulled him from where he sat in his car on an alleged FORGERY. You can also text “FLOYD” to 55156 ARREST THE OFFICERS WHO KILLED GEORGE FLOYD: The main police officer who murdered George is being kept in PROTECTIVE CUSTODY. You probably have heard he was arrested, but this is NOT TRUE. He was placed under PROTECTIVE custody because of the riots and “threats” on his life. 

If you know of ANY other organizations or petitions, PLEASE ADD TO THIS LIST. The fight for justice doesn’t end here, it will never end. Especially when the president of the United States calls white supremacists good people and protesters of a mans death THUGS. USE YOUR VOICE. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE. FUCK COPS. FUCK “BLUE LIVES”. ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER!

the minnesota freedom fund is asking folks to donate to other organizations instead. the specific ones they listed are black visions, linked above, and these two:

northstar health collective, organized healthcare professionals working with anti-authoritarian groups reclaim the block, a collective that aims to redistribute funding away from police and towards more community-oriented projects in minneapolis

these are the links i send to my facebook friends who keep running their mouths about “the protests hurting the community”

minnehaha food shelf & calvary church food shelf are both centered in the south minneapolis area where the riots started. the grocery stores in the area have been decimated, so food shelves and food insecurity charities need a lot of love right now. northside funders group is a philanthropic group in the twin cities that’s using all its funds right now for helping local businesses migizi is a native american media/history nonprofit whose office was destroyed in the riots we love lake street is devoting funds specifically towards rebuilding the lake street area in south minneapolis

some more groups that could use your help

the healing justice foundation is a national nonprofit that’s specifically focusing on mental health resources for bipoc right now ctul is a nonprofit focused on low-wage workers and workers rights in minnesota mpd 150 is focused on policing and specifically trying to reroute the conversation from “we need to change police procedures” to “the police need structural reform” the spiral collective is providing funds for supplies, medic kits, and other things that protesters will need on the ground unicorn riot is a media collective that has had people on the ground filming every night in minneapolis

last but not least some more bail funds

cast fat people in normal roles that do not revolve around being fat/ridiculed, I dare you

May 30th 2020, it is the fourth day of the protest in minneapolis following the murder of George floyd and the first for many states nationwide as people are banding together in the cities all across america and asking for an answer on why this happened at all

image

It has been confirmed this morning that upwards of 1000 troopers are coming to minneapolis and are instructed to use force on anyone they deem a threat

People have been taken into police custody everywhere and the number of protestors that have gone missing or have not been seen since Thursday is rising

The 8 pm curfew set by the mayor of minneapolis jacob frey has tweeted that firefighters and their vehicles will only help citizens if they believe the area is safe, and many protestors are saying they’re buildings are still purposely being burned down

imageimage

Derek chauvin, the murderer of George floyd mugshot has been released and his bail has been set at $500,000 if prosecuted he faces charges of third degree murder but the floyd family says this is not enough, seeing as third degree murder is “accidental” but there was nothing accidental about Derek chauvin holding his knee to the neck of George floyd for eight minutes and forty six seconds.

image

If convicted Derek faces up to 25 years in prison, the other three police officers involved in the incident have not been taken into custody

the identity of the 19 year old boy who was shot last night on live tv still has not been released, and protestors are standing by their word that it was not anyone who was protesting that did this to him.

As more officers are being identified for the brutality they unleashed on citizens last night

please remember to keep spreading funds for minneapolis and other cities being impacted by state sanctioned violence
