Protests continued overnight in the US following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis, after a white police officer held him down by kneeling on his neck for several minutes.
Knowing what to do and how to help, if you feel angry and overwhelmed by the situation – especially in the midst of a pandemic – can be difficult and upsetting, but here are a few ways to start…

  1. Make a donation
    If you are in a position to provide financial support, you can donate to organisations such as the Minnesota Freedom Fund – the non-profit is supporting the bail costs of people jailed for protesting George Floyd’s death – as well as local Minneapolis outfits led by black community members, including Black Visions Collective and Reclaim The Block. You can also support the George Floyd Memorial Fund, set up by Floyd’s brother Philonise, to help cover funeral and burial costs, legal fees and the care and education of George’s children.

  1. Sign a petition

Join the demand for justice for George Floyd by adding your name to a petition. Find petitions at Change.org, Colour of Change, We Can’t Breathe and NAACP.
3. Educate yourself
It’s on you to do your research, have an understanding of the history of racial injustice, get up to speed on police brutality cases and the inequalities and injustices faced by black people, not just in America, but in the UK and Ireland and around the world.
This is a systemic problem that’s in no way isolated to the US.
Track down resources, investigate what it means to really be an ally, if you are white, understand your white privilege, listen, stock up on books like Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge, and White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo, and read them. Share these resources with friends and family, and talk about what is happening, and what needs to change.

Replying to @OsopePatrisse
Their actual job is to: occupy, harass, abuse, torture and kill Black communities. This is not hyperbole. This is facts. Do you need more proof than the last 7 years? Do Black people need to keep dying in order for white folks to trust when we say #DefundThePolice ?

It’s time - this moment is our time for folks who have huge platforms - not just Black folks to show up and confront the violent and brutal reality of law enforcement across the United States of America. I promise the moment you listen to Black organizers you will be freed.

  1. Support your local community
    Due to lockdown restrictions in the UK and Ireland, physically joining a protest will likely be difficult – if not impossible – but you can still stay at home and take a stand.
    Start by finding and supporting charities, community organisations and political groups in your area that are anti-racist and fighting for racial equality.
    Support nearby businesses run by black people, and shout about them. Take anti-racist action in your own life on a day-to-day basis.
    Push for change in regards to diversity at work, and speak up when confronted with racist comments made by family members and colleagues, however uncomfortable or difficult it may be.
    Enter into conversations and do not stay silent.

Not just Irish media, looks like the corporates are now acting as recruiter and financing nodes, here is but one example, following the same formula:

You needed another thread for this?


#5

Clearly. Now back on topic.


#6

Your off topic since the very first post ffs. Unless you think the Washington Times is based out of ballydehob.

:rofl:

It might be the other way round.

I decided to disagree with a post on the other thread in relation to why we are being made to wear masks. So im just putting it here as its kind of relevant (limited to three replies on the other thread)


Masks are a way for the Government and pharma owned NPHET to physically manifest in people’s minds, because in reality, there are no other signs that there is anything close to a pandemic.

It doesn’t exist on paper in their own numbers, in the hospitals, or in peoples lives (people aren’t dropping dead, the life expectancy of those testing positive and dying, is on average OVER the pre-covid life expectancy).

If there was a pandemic, we would not need so much advertising to tell us there was a pandemic.

If masks weren’t on people’s faces, the pandemic would not exist, people would be more awake, and start asking questions.

We are facing communism right in front of us, and precious few people have the cop on to see it right now.

It’s been apparent for some time tbh. Years even.

What you describe is conditioning. Which has also been apparent from the start.

The delivery systems used are now primarily cybernetic in the first and then are reinforced by the various authorities and figureheads following through in lockstep, thus triggering a broad in-group tendency towards conformity.

Mandatory masking laws are a signalling of the loyalty by respective governments/authorities, a demonstration if you will of their own compliance with a grander plan and their ability to follow through on what has been requested of them, it’s a clear symbolic gesture of how far they are willing to go against the will of their people and disabuse them of their humanity and inalienable rights.
