DECARCERATE LOUISIANA: Community Submitted by Akron

Administrators are forcing inmates participating in the Angola labor strike back to work at gunpoint. This is what slavery looks like. Support these human beings. Call your congressional rep, call the prison, call everyone you know and tell them to raise their voice against this. 

Here is a first hand account from a prisoner inside of the strike. 

 



Scranton Police Department Facebook Group: A Digital Occupation

At its height of popularity, the Scranton Police Department public Facebook group was packed with over 15,000 ardent supporters of the local police.  Most members of the online group were local to Scranton, Pennsylvania, or had lived in the area at some point in their lives.  The group was founded in early 2012 by Allie Massey, a Scranton resident, who cheerfully administrated the bustling online community.

If you scroll through the content of the page you can view a myriad of Blue Lives Matter Flags, memes calling for prayers and safety of the police, notices of missing people reports and lost pets.  You’ll also view a smattering of racist, sexist and anti-Obama content.

The Struggalo continues:

Great Lakes AntiFa demonstrates in solidarity with the Juggalo March on Washington, D.C.

On September 16th, 2017 two rallies were planned in Washington, D.C., one was slated to be the “Mother of All Rallies” (MOAR) in support of the sitting president, while the other, coined the “Juggalo March” was an effort to fight federal overreach against fans of the musical group Insane Clown Posse (ICP).  The MOAR promised to yield millions of marchers, dwarfing all other rallies and demonstrating the might of the conservative base which elected Donald Trump.  Conversely, fans of ICP were not seeking to display their political prowess.  Instead, they sought to challenge the Federal Bureau of Investigations’ (F.B.I.) designation of them as a gang.
