Guys there is shit going down in ferguson right now and I am not seeing anything about it.

As of RIGHT NOW they are being tear gassed like before.

Please see the livestream it’s important.

The police have forced the media into a small area.
And then they very purposefully used tear gas to force the peaceful protesters back out of camera range, and you can hear shots being fired off camera, as well as more tear gas canisters.

I'd like to thank you for sharing all of the Ferguson stuff. I appreciate you helping raise awareness of the troubles in the black community. Some of us don't have that many followers on our art blogs and can't give it the attention it deserves so it means a lot.

A

CultureHISTORY: The Ferguson Protests - #NMOS14

In light of Mike Brown’s murder, and the police occupation of Ferguson, something extraordinary is happening. With the help of #BlackTwitter, social media, the spotlight of national attention and the impassioned citizens of Ferguson, a protest movement is taking shape and it is important to bear witness.

First there was the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown thread which was reported in the NY Times & LA Times, the #DontShoot thread of photos (some above), and tomorrow a National Moment of Silence across the country for the victims of police brutality.  

Thursday, August 14th#NMOS14 - 4:00P (PT) / 6:00P (CT) / 7:00P (ET). Check cities/location here.

The issue of police brutality against communities of color is a decades-old problem. But with new technology, everyone has access to more information and these cases are getting more attention. Plus, in the last four weeks, four unarmed black men have been killed by policemen across the country. Along with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford in Dayton, OH and Ezell Ford in L.A. Yes, it’s time for a movement.
