BREAKING: The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is suspending its water shutoffs for 15 days. We will keep up the pressure until they stop the shutoffs permanently!
Statement from the Detroit Water Brigade: http://bit.ly/1sFfDgg
Without struggle, there is no progress
This is really important, but I can’t emphasize enough to tradtional AND social media—this is NOT. OVER. At a recent community meeting, the water dept said:
In a community meeting with the Rosedale Park residents July 17, DWSD representatives told residents there would not be a moratorium on foreclosures. DWSD sub-contractor Charlie Fleetham also told residents there would not be an implementation of an affordability plan because it was against the law.
What that means is that people can still lose their homes AND that any type of affordability plan is *ILLEGAL*. do you understand that? *JUSTICE IS ILLEGAL*.
This also means that when the 15 days are up? If there already was a holy reign of media terror against the people who can’t pay their bills, it will be even WORSE after the 15 days and people still can’t afford to pay their bills. Who can solve poverty in 15 days? I know I can’t. But there will be *relentless* “WE GAVE YOU EXTRA TIME, WHAT IS UR PROBLEM??????” narrative spewing and an even more aggressive call to shut off than what there already is.
Folks in the media MUST stay vigilant!
This is so important!
I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.
Don’t be me.
The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland
At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.
The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.
never read the fucking comments
For all the Irish folks always crying about how Irish people were ~*~*~ALSO OPPRESSED~*~*~
