Getting me to Ferguson
http://www.gofundme.com/cxwamk
The last moments of Michael Brown’s life were filled with shock, fear and terror, says a witness who stood just feet away as a police officer shot and killed the unarmed teen.“I saw the barrel of the gun pointed at my friend,” said Dorian Johnson, 22. “Then I saw the fire come out of the barrel.”Brown’s killing on Saturday afternoon has sparked protests and rioting in this small, hardscrabble suburb of St. Louis, where tensions continue to rise between the police and the largely black, mostly poor community. Brown’s shooting lifted the lid on a pot that had long been bubbling .What I Need The $800 goal Would fund my transportation from NJ to St Louis, my lodging and meals while in St Louis. As well as printed materials to be distributed at rallies/protests.The ImpactTo support the development of mass self-managed organizations in the community that can address the murder of Mike Brown.To help create a sustainable movement that can address struggles of police brutality, racial profiling,housing,transportation, pollution, welfare rights, and the issues of the day. Political ideas and strategies need to be informed by practical experience. This means that the political organization needs to bring together activists who are rooted in working class communities and their mass organizations and struggles. Through our active presence we can learn from others. Through our participation and organizing activity, and the influence of our ideas, we can build a social base to not only have DEMANDS MET but to CREATE REAL CHANGE.We must defend Ferguson.Other Ways You Can HelpSome people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about this campaign by using the gofundme share tools!Thank you for your support!

It’s been an incredibly difficult five days with what’s happened in what I look at as my back yard. Last night watching the live feeds of what was happening in Ferguson, MO was absolutely unbelievable and I spent the entire night refreshing twitter feeling total shame and despair.

Today though, across the country there were little glimpses of light at this very dark tunnel. Being consumed by this level of anger feels exhausting, and take that with an incredibly huge grain of salt because that’s just what I with the privilege of being a white male am capable of feeling. I’m not capable of comprehending the real pain. At today’s NMOS14 demonstration in Chicago, an incredible number of people gathered on short notice. The assembly was peaceful. We listened to people express their hurt, their hope, their anger, and their drive to change things. Once my camera died (again, short notice on this rally), I biked straight to my computer to share the solidarity- if only here in Chicago.

I know this isn’t really the stuff I normally post on here, but I figure the one time I’m literally crying while taking pictures is probably a good time to post stuff. My gratitude goes to everyone organizing today, and not just here but everywhere.

National Moment of Silence Protest in Chicago, Illinois was a SUCCESS! The amount of unity and diversity within the crowd brought tears to my eyes. We met up at the Daley Plaza at 6 PM, had a moment of silence for 4 minutes with our hands held in the air. Every minute represented the four hours Mike Brown’s body was on the ground. Chicago is truly not a segregated city. The people know how to come together when we need to. WE TOOK IT TO THE STREETS. People joined in, we were chanting and screaming. There were black people, white people, asians, hispanics, everyone was there. It was a beautiful experience. All in support of Ferguson and police brutality victims. A protest to help stop racist cops from prevailing.

Luckily, the police kept their asses on the sidelines and out of our way. There were too many of us to be controlled.
