“After Hong Kong police allegedly shot a woman medic in the eye with a beanbag round during ongoing pro-democracy protests on Sunday, demonstrators are wearing bandages and patches over their right eyes to protest against police brutality and as a symbol of the resistance. Viral photos showed the woman lying on the ground with blood streaming from her right eye and what looked like a beanbag round lodged in a set of goggles in front of her. On Monday, the victim’s sister posted online that she had spent the night receiving emergency surgery to reconstruct her eye, which was ruptured, and that the bones around her eye sockets had also been shattered, the Guardian reported. The South China Morning Post reported she could lose her eye. However, at a press conference Monday, Hong Kong police said there was no evidence the incident was related to police action. Protesters, who have been occupying Hong Kong International Airport since last Friday, also held signs reading “an eye for an eye” and graffitied the phrase on walls. The airport, one of the world’s busiest, was forced to shut down on Tuesday, when demonstrators blocked travelers from departure gates and some protesters attacked two men from China, a reporter for a Communist Party-owned newspaper and another man who they suspected of being an undercover officer. Viral videos in previous days showed officers dressed as protesters violently arresting demonstrators. As flights resumed on Wednesday, protesters apologized publicly for causing chaos at the airport, posting messages online and holding signs saying they had acted out of fear of the government and police and vowed to learn from their mistakes. The protests broke out 10 weeks ago in response to a proposed extradition bill but have since morphed into a wider pro-democracy movement.”

“The last six months have been pretty groundbreaking in terms of environmental activism. Thanks to the incredible @gretathunberg, climate school strikes have taken off around the world in the form @fridaysforfuture. Seeing the youth of today passionately demanding climate action is inspiring to say the least. Then there’s @extinctionrebellion, a social movement that’s uniting people around the world and engaging in non-violent protests demanding governments act on climate change. On the surface, it seems like society is waking up to the reality of impending climate disaster. But are protests really an effective form of activism?

I always promote activism as one of the most effective things you can do in terms of helping to change the fate of our planet. But I feel like there’s been little to no response from our governments on the actual demands of recent protesters. This got me thinking about whether protests actually make a difference, as right now i feel as if our governments don’t care at all what its citizens want. I decided to do a little research and find out exactly how effective protests are, according to the experts. It turns out they can be, but it depends on a number of factors.  “

🇭🇰 Hong Kong: Protests for Democracy - “Demonstrations began in opposition to a proposed extradition bill, which would have allowed suspected criminals to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Critics said it would undermine Hong Kong's legal freedoms, and could be used to silence critics.

Although the government has now suspended the bill, demonstrators want it to be fully withdrawn. 
Their demands have broadened to include calls for an independent inquiry into alleged police brutality, and an amnesty for all arrested protesters.

Hong Kong is part of China but its citizens have more autonomy than those on the mainland. It has a free press and judicial independence under the so-called one country, two systems approach - freedoms which activists fear are being increasingly eroded.”

This sign does not mean all white men are terrorists - in the same way not all Muslims are terrorists - but let’s call a spade a spade. The overwhelming truth is these random incidents of domestic terrorism are fueled by hateful white supremacist ideology, poor mental health, and frighteningly easy access to firearms on a national level. There’s a disease in America that no wall will fix, and it’s about time our leaders recognize that and take real, concrete steps to address it. This country has had enough.
.
Our hearts go out to the victims, families and those affected by the shootings in #gilroy #dayton and #elpaso this week, and everyone affected by #gunviolence in this country by no fault of their own.

“FACT: Men are an essential part of feminism. This has always struck me as very ironic (why does THIS movement have to be about THEM?), but also completely logical (until they join us in the fight against sexism, we can never truly win).⁣
⁣
Under patriarchy, the standards we create for men end up shaping EVERYTHING — including the standards we apply to women & gnc folks.⁣
⁣
We say: A man should be athletic.⁣
It causes: Body-shaming that perpetuates a culture of physical strength (and violence to anyone who deviates from it).⁣
⁣
We say: A man should make lots of money.⁣
It causes: Dependance on capitalism and a bootstraps mentality.⁣
⁣
We say: A man shouldn't show his emotions — crying is for girls.⁣
It causes: Repression of feelings, dehumanization of women, and rejection of traits commonly associated with femininity.⁣
⁣
Think about it — the most common factor in mass shootings isn't race, religion, or nationality. It's gender.⁣
⁣
Of course men should fight to dismantle patriarchy solely because of the ways it hurts women & gnc people. That should be enough. But they should also be aware of how much patriarchy hurts them directly. And the rest of us need to join their fight. “ - @jenerous

“I recently had a conversation with a family friend of mine who works in oil and gas. He offered to give me a recommendation to work at his company.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
I obviously refused, based on my morals. He said I was naive, and that the world would stop without oil. That the world needs oil, whether I like it or not.

It’s mentalities like this that I want to change by making this page. We CAN help!! We can make a change and we don’t have to kill the earth anymore.” - @chicksforclimate @the_plasticfree_people .

Anti-fracking march in Portugal 🇵🇹
.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in Bajouca, Portugal last week to protest the exploitation of its land by oil & gas company, Australis. The protesters are furious the government signed contracts with Australis without listening to its constituents and hope to curtail its drilling efforts. The environmental minister has been silent on the issue.
.
“There is no added value. Even the money they will make will be taken from here. We will continue to be poor and enrich companies that will take profit to tax havens,” says one of the participants.
