Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

#reshare posted this a while, while back (one year ago).  unfortunately, it’s time to update with some new tags.

From Artist James Romberger:"Another view of the same scene (1980s Lower East Side) I posted yesterday, this time a street-level angle on the absurdly expensive and brutal police actions against homeless activists from a few decades ago in NYC, similar abuses of power and militarized policing as what is happening in ‪#‎Ferguson‬ now. James Romberger, Police vs Squatters, pastel on paper, 1991. Collection of the Brooklyn Museum.”

St. Louis Alderman Antonio French has been arrested.  Alderman French is one of only two elected officials on any level (local, state or federal) who has been on the ground supporting the residents of Ferguson, MO since the execution of Michael Brown at the hands of an as yet unnamed police officer last Saturday night.  Alderman French has been tweeting and posting Vines of everything he’s witnessed in Ferguson since protests began earlier this week.

“If You Build It. We’re waiting for something to happen, and here it is. A ray of light on public housing does shine. Replete with breathtaking views, there is a place that has reserved some twenty plus units for families currently living in shelters. There is a place that has in its scope the developmental role that art plays for a child and the community at large. Here is a place that stakes claim in a neighborhood laden within rich history. Repurposing sacred cultural grounds once place of affluence, culture, impactful intellectuals, and arts—a bygone era suppressed into an underprivileged classification—becoming home to a righteous leap forward into fair housing, a place that truly aims to nurture and spawn potential, like its terrace will provide a grand vista of what can be in this lifetime.”
