On this day, 14 February 1851, a crowd of African-Americans and #abolitionists raided the #Boston courthouse and rescued Shadrach Minkins, aka Frederick Jenkins, an imprisoned runaway enslaved person, then smuggled him to freedom in Canada.

The first video: United States Border Patrol preparing for the next caravan. Slides 2 & 3 are videos from the #Israel/ #Gaza border back during the #marchofreturn last year. Why am I sharing these together? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Ever since returning from #Palestine and Israel on assignment I was astounded at how many similarities there are between the Israeli Palestinian conflict and the ongoing issues going on between the United States and #Mexico. From the start I have predicted that the inflated โ€œconflictโ€ at the southern border will turn into what we are seeing happening to #Palestinians. We already have reports of abuse, murder and rape by ICE officials & Border patrol agents. Now we continue to militarize our southern border as people looking for a safer life, unarmed come this way. We are living under the most authoritarian government the United States has even been. #yourdailyember ___________________________________________ โฌ‡๏ธ Tag friends below in the comments โฌ‡๏ธ ___________________________________________ โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ #Austerity #ClassWar #Imperialism #Tyranny #Oligarchy #IncomeInequality #StudentDebt #BlackLivesMatter #ClimateChange #MeToo #OCCUPYEVERYTHING. โœŠ๐ŸฝPartnersโœŠ๐Ÿฝ @thedailyember @fvckboyoftheday @redacted2night ___________________________________________ at US Mexico Border

Via the incredible @eddied77 - Israeli soldiers abducted, on Tuesday at dawn, 33 #Palestinians from their homes after invading and violently searching them, in several parts of the occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Prisonersโ€™ Society (PPS) has reported. The PPS office in #Ramallah, in central #WestBank, said the soldiers abducted thirteen Palestinians, including two women, in several parts of the governorate. The soldiers abducted Soheir Barghouthi, the mother ofย Saleh Barghouthi, 29, who was killed by the army on December 12, 2018. It is worth mentioning the Soheir also has three sons who are imprisoned by #Israel, identified as Assem, Assef and Mohammad Barghouthi. The soldiers also abducted the wife of detainee Omar Barghouthi, and her brothers Zahi, and Saher Ismael Barghouthi. It is worth mentioning that, on Monday, the head of the Central Command of the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank, Major General Nadav Padan, signed an order authorizing the demolition of Assemโ€™s home, while the soldiers handed the family an order for the demolition of Salehโ€™s home, after Israeli courts denied their appeals. Also in Ramallah, the soldiers abducted Yousef Husam Hneini, Firas as-Sayes, Moโ€™tasem Saqfelheit, Samer Abdul-Salam, Ahmad Abdul-Hafeth, Ismael Soheil Harb, Hotheifa Lutfi Barghouthi, Hamza Awwad, and a teen with special needs, identified as Ehab Ayman Khweira, 17.

via MC & songwriter @officiallyfrosty - If you pay attention to the lyrics in my music you would know that I am an advocate for #justice and freedom for ALL people. That being said TONIGHT my revolutionary allies and I are headed to #SantaAna City Hall at 6pm to voice our public opinion about the Santa Ana Police Department trying to destroy their police misconduct records. #California recently passed bill SB 1421, which grants the public with access to police departmentโ€™s internal investigation records regarding officers who sexually assaulted someone on a case, falsified reports, and misused deadly force. We need to show up to this City Council Meeting (SanTana resident or not) and protest their attempt to cover their asses by trying to destroy these misconduct records. Police officers, and public officials, need to be held to the same set of standards as the rest of society. Remember...the revolution starts with you and ends with us. #therevolutionwillnotbetelevised DM me if you have any serious questions. #blacklivesmatter #blackandbrownexcellence #blackandbrownunity #corruption #accountability #revolution #blackhistorymonth #abuseofpower #powertothepeople #DTSA #OccupyEVERYTHING ๐Ÿ“ธ: @koridecker at City of Santa Ana

- LINK IN @chispaoc BIO: A couple of things: 1) We don't care if the city believes destroying police records is perfectly legal--it's wrong and undermines trust and transparency. 2) A $25M contract for the #SantaAna Police Officers Association is wrong and irresponsible whether the city is in a dire financial situation (which it is) or not. This enforcement first strategy was wrong in the 80s, 90s, and it is wrong now. โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ #OCCUPYEVERYTHING. โœŠ๐ŸฝPartnersโœŠ๐Ÿฝ @thedailyember @fvckboyoftheday @redacted2night at Santa Ana, California

#NewYork City has agreed to pay the family of #KaliefBrowder $3.3 million in a wrongful death lawsuit. Browder became a symbol of New York's broken criminal justice system when, at only 16 years old, he was accused of stealing a backpack and detained on #RikersIsland for three years โ€“ without ever being tried or convicted. He spent most of his time in solitary confinement while his family was unable to pay his $3,000 bail. When he was finally released in 2013, all charges against him were dropped, but in an interview with the New Yorker the next year he said, โ€˜I feel like I was robbed of my happiness.โ€™ In 2015, at age 22, he hanged himself at his parentโ€™s home in #theBronx following years of depression and trauma brought on by his treatment on Rikers. #OccupyEVERYTHING #BlackLivesMATTER . #NYC โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ #Austerity #ClassWar #Imperialism #Tyranny #Oligarchy #IncomeInequality #StudentDebt . โœŠ๐ŸฝPartnersโœŠ๐Ÿฝ @thedailyember @fvckboyoftheday @redacted2night at Rikers Island

On this day, 29 January 1911 northern #Mexico, the first battle of the #Tijuana revolt occurred. A pre dawn raid by an international mix of Magonistas (supporters of the anarchist Liberal Party of Mexico - PLM) and Industrial Workers of the World union members seized the town of Mexicali, killing the jailer. The #revolt despite serious flaws would spread in the border areas and peaked with the capture of the town of Tijuana.

On this day, 28 January 1917, Carmelita Torres, a 17-year-old Mexican maid who worked in the US, refused to take the mandatory gasoline bath given to day labourers at the border, and convinced 30 other trolley passengers to join her. Her protest spread in what became known as the #BathRiots. However, the practice of fumigating workers with a toxic cocktail of #DDT and ZyklonB continued until the 1950s. โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ #OCCUPYEVERYTHING. โœŠ๐ŸฝPartnersโœŠ๐Ÿฝ @thedailyember @fvckboyoftheday @redacted2night Via @workingclasshistory - at US Mexico Border

via @mintpress - Today on MPN: The right-wing opposition leader that the United States is trying to undemocratically install as #Venezuelaโ€™s president immediately set his sights on the countryโ€™s state-owned oil company, which he is hoping to restructure and move toward privatization. He is also seeking money from the notorious International Monetary Fund ( #IMF) to fund his unelected government. Guaidรณ is attempting to fire the directors of Citgo Petroleum, which is owned by Venezuelaโ€™s state oil company PDVSA, and seeks to appoint his own new board. Citgo is the largest purchaser of Venezuelan oil, although crippling sanctions imposed by the Trump administration have prevented the company from sending revenue to Venezuela, starving the government of funding. โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸผโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฟ #Austerity #ClassWar #Imperialism #Tyranny #Oligarchy #IncomeInequality #StudentDebt #BlackLivesMatter #ClimateChange #MeToo #OCCUPYEVERYTHING. โœŠ๐ŸฝPartnersโœŠ๐Ÿฝ @thedailyember @fvckboyoftheday @redacted2night
