FIRSTLY- Friday July4 was a really important day and a strong convergence of indigenous, undocumented and anti - colonialist anti- fascist action on #farceofjuly against the reactionary racists holding down Murrieta. The Danzas called upon a strong spirit to hold that space and i think that is what moved a lot of the rightwingers down the road (though they were worried the bus would come in from the other direction). It’s important we got out there and got more information on what the conspiracy is between the police, border patrol and the anti immigrant protesters (as if they are any different). After going down the street to take pictures of the right wing reactionaries, a right winger punched someone who was with us. The police intervened and began to use excessive force on the people targeted by the right-wing. As we tried to leave the area, more police arrived and began brutalizing our group instead of holding accountable the right wingers (big surprise here..). We were assaulted by police, then charged with assault and Lynching. One comrade was arrested and charged with a felony, even though they were far from the conflict but were filming the brutality and excessive force of the police. His phone was confiscated. It appears we will be facing multiple felonies, if anyone in the So Cal areas knows of any legal support help or suggestions please email me at artofexisting@gmail.com. 
The Police confiscated two of our phones and are holding them as evidence pending a search warrant. This is seriously troubling because there is a strong likelihood that the Murrieta Police are involved indirectly or directly in the anti immigration protests. They don’t consider themselves representatives of the federal government, but first of Murrieta as a private city. (is what they told us) At least two of the officers spoke of going to the protest after their shift. They were watching videos of the rally on their shift and chanting USA USA. One of the border patrol agents was there throughout the processing. The Border Patrol and Murrieta PD are not fit to provide protective custody to these displaced children! MAD SOLIDARITY TO ALL THOSE ORGANIZING AGAINST THESE RACISTS.  Let’s keep the focus on borders, displacement and refugees detained by the federal government and processed in extremely hostile areas like Murrieta!Inland Empire organizers have called for a National Day of Action to call for peace, respect, and compassion for unaccompanied minors. There is a PEACE VIGIL in Murrieta, CA on Wednesday to refocus the events on creating safe(r) spaces for undocumented displaced peoples and migrant children refugees. Information can be found at the attached event: We Don’t Have a Border Issue, We Have a Humanitarian Issue: Vigil In Support of Refugee Children and their Families https://www.facebook.com/events/1513890132160647/?ref=22. 
Please share and help! If it’s an ‘immigration crisis’ it’s also an IMPERIALIST crisis and we have to do what we can to support people who are impacted and displaced by Amerikan aktions indirectly through policies and directly through US intervention, military occupation, or destabalization of other countries and economies.

Please NOTE that Murrieta is an extremely hostile and racist run city, there were minutemen armed with knives there in peoples faces threatening and organizing to bring reinforcements. There is a history of neo-nazi white supremacist organizing in the Inland Empire area. It is not recommended that you go there by yourselves, but that we move together in a more organized fashion.

This deliciousness pizza is from Dominos pizza Israel. You read correct. Let’s spread the word. Wherever there’s Dominos, so should a vegan pizza be!

So here we have the first up-close-and-personal look at that newfangled vegan pizza being offered by Dominos in Israel and, contrary to what all the non-vegans are claiming, it looks hella tasty! I would nip that cheese like whoah.

btw, there’s currently a petition on care2 asking Dominos to bring this bad girl to the US. fyi.

OH MY GOD THERE’S A PETITION SIGN IT SIGN IT SIGN IT

Facebook tinkered with users’ feeds for a massive psychology experiment | AV Club 
Scientists at Facebook have published a paper showing that they manipulated the content seen by more than 600,000 users in an attempt to determine whether this would affect their emotional state. The paper, “Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks,” was published inThe Proceedings Of The National Academy Of Sciences. It shows how Facebook data scientists tweaked the algorithm that determines which posts appear on users’ news feeds—specifically, researchers skewed the number of positive or negative terms seen by randomly selected users. Facebook then analyzed the future postings of those users over the course of a week to see if people responded with increased positivity or negativity of their own, thus answering the question of whether emotional states can be transmitted across a social network. Result: They can! Which is great news for Facebook data scientists hoping to prove a point about modern psychology. It’s less great for the people having their emotions secretly manipulated.
In order to sign up for Facebook, users must click a box saying they agree to the Facebook Data Use Policy, giving the company the right to access and use the information posted on the site. The policy lists a variety of potential uses for your data, most of them related to advertising, but there’s also a bit about “internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.” In the study, the authors point out that they stayed within the data policy’s liberal constraints by using machine analysis to pick out positive and negative posts, meaning no user data containing personal information was actually viewed by human researchers. And there was no need to ask study “participants” for consent, as they’d already given it by agreeing to Facebook’s terms of service in the first place.
Facebook data scientist Adam Kramer is listed as the study’s lead author. In an interview the company released a few years ago, Kramer is quoted as saying he joined Facebook because “Facebook data constitutes the largest field study in the history of the world.” It’s a charming reminder that Facebook isn’t just the place you go to see pictures of your friends’ kids or your racist uncle’s latest rant against the government—it’s also an exciting research lab, with all of us as potential test subjects.

We have always lived in slums and holes in the wall. We will know how to accommodate ourselves for a while. For you must not forget that we can also build. It is we who built these palaces and cities, here in Spain and America and everywhere. We, the workers. We can build others to take their place. And better ones. We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts. That world is growing in this minute. - Buenaventura Durruti

“It took Adolf Hitler and his Nazi cohorts 12 years to round up and murder 6 million Jews, but their Teutonic cousins, the British, managed to kill almost 4 million Indians in just over a year, with Prime Minister Winston Churchill cheering from the sidelines. Australian biochemist Dr Gideon Polya has called the Bengal Famine a “manmade holocaust” because Churchill’s policies were directly responsible for the disaster. Bengal had a bountiful harvest in 1942, but the British started diverting vast quantities of food grain from India to Britain, contributing to a massive food shortage in the areas comprising present-day West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar and Bangladesh. Author Madhusree Mukerjee tracked down some of the survivors and paints a chilling picture of the effects of hunger and deprivation. In Churchill’s Secret War, she writes: “Parents dumped their starving children into rivers and wells. Many took their lives by throwing themselves in front of trains. Starving people begged for the starchy water in which rice had been boiled. Children ate leaves and vines, yam stems and grass. People were too weak even to cremate their loved ones.”"

Remembering India’s Forgotten Holocaust. 

Sarah Waheed notes: “One of the students in my modern South Asia history class a few years ago, was extremely upset that the book we were reading referred to the Bengal famine as a holocaust, calling the author ‘biased’. When I asked him to clarify and elaborate upon what he meant by ‘biased’, he exclaimed, inflamed, “There was only one holocaust!” The rest of the students were, however, more open to the idea of the 20th century being a century of multiple holocausts. The terms ‘holocaust’ and ‘genocide’, however, continue to elicit trauma envy.”

(via mehreenkasana)

I first heard of British crimes like this in Mike Davis’ Late Victorian Holocausts which talks about how imperialism affected the Indian subcontinent’s food supply. The system which could feed everyone, even during hard times, was “centralized” to be “more efficient” by the British administration, leading to skyrocketing poverty and famine and a destroyed local ecology.
