BREAKING: Nicolás Maduro has declared himself interim president of the United States until free and fair elections can be held and the human rights abuses stop

He's on his way to free the americans.

I keep seeing people say "Bail funds have enough money" and idk about other cities but this definitely is NOT true for Philly.

Bails are getting set HIGH and it takes time for the cash to get returned to the fund.

We've had over 450 arrests of protestors in Philly. Bail funds are for ALL arrests and with COVID-19 they're trying to bail as many as possible.

Last week the average bail was $16,382 to get someone out. Having "more than enough money" is having over $7mil for 450 ppl

"Dress rehearsals can lead to larger revolutions only if the lessons are learned. The U.S. military studies closely its victories as well as its defeats. It learns as it fights, and works to prepare itself for the next battles. The same responsibility falls on those of us who dream and fight for a new system."

Talk going around that the blackout Tuesday thing on social media is most likely a psyop. BLM or any group really is not calling for it, and it's a great way to silence social media by drowning out attention to what's actually happening as nothing will get posted and what does is drowned out by black squares.

The march in Houston today with George Floyd's family is going to fucking feature the police chief and the city mayor marching with them and speaking.

Nothing but false displays of solidarity in order to control the narrative. Sickening.

Just to be clear here, by designating #antifa as a terrorist organisation Trump just officially declared the US as a fascist state.

What you are witnessing right now in the US, are the first days of a openly fascist state.

The authoritarian US govt has (both before Trump and still today) arrested Americans on absurd charges of "material support" because they provided the following to accused "terrorists":

If the authoritarian US police state designates "Antifa" as a "terrorist org," you could be thrown in prison for years for supposedly providing "material support" to any antifascist anywhere.

And "material support" could mean anything: information, advice, a photo, a donation

An image for the history books. Probably the most powerful one I’ve seen so far. Sharing it, because the people in frame do not appear to be identifiable.

While the US authoritarian ultra-capitalist police state beats its own population into submission for daring to protest systemic police brutality and state violence, Cuba's popular socialist government shows solidarity with the protesters, flying its US embassy flag at half mast

Flag of the Cuban embassy at half mast.

Americans need to stop denying it and finally admit that the US government is an authoritarian regime -- much worse than any foreign dictatorship Washington says it has to overthrow to bring its people "democracy"
RT @tkerssen
Share widely: National guard and MPD sweeping our residential street. Shooting paint canisters at us on our own front porch. Yelling “light em up” #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForGeorge #BlackLivesMatter

I think my partner puts this shit on because she's a masochist.

This bullshit show concedes and gives 5 points to the USSR for space achievements, then proceeded to change the title from "Space Race" to "Race to the Moon", docking 5 points from the USSR and giving a point to the US to show "they won."

Like, I can't stop laughing. Absolutely wild that the US can't even account for achievements done by others if they can't paint themselves as # 1. "History 101" my ass lmao

businesses side with cops because cops protect capital. us cops were started to detain runaway slaves. it was never about serving the community and always about keeping the rich people rich and the oppressed down

So proud of our branch, the turnout for the protest was huge compared to the first! 3x bigger, more coordinated, and a great response!

Mass protests against state-sanctioned terrorism & brutality, continued pressure & increasing awareness of the struggle heightened by COVID; I wouldn't consider us at the 1905 Bolshevik level, but the tide is turning. It's up to us and an organized vanguard to continue the push in leading our class against the boot of capitalism ☭

Something I always have in the back of my mind while writing communist stuff online:

Will Lenin dunk on me for this?


White center-conservative suburbanites earnestly pull the "destroying their own community" act because Target and Starbucks are the closest thing they have to culture.

Predator drone flying over Minneapolis.

It was, of course, only a matter of time before we saw these deployed against US citizens.

protesting advice 

so listen, its been a while (2014) since i've been on the ground due to illness, but at one time i was learning to be a street medic and if you're preparing to go out to protest, here are some things to help you be prepared:

1: If you can help it, try not to wear contacts. you may get gassed and that junk will get stuck behind the lenses. tight swimming goggles will help you to some degree tho
2: if you have a bandanna, soak it in apple cider vinegar and keep it in a plastic bag. take it out and breath through it if you find yourself in a gas cloud. it'll give you a couple minutes of protection to get out.
3: soak a wad of paper towels in dish soap and water and keep it in a plastic baggie for emergency decontamination of your skin. rinse your eyes with clear water. milk will alleviate the pain but wont get rid of the actual contaminant, soap will
4: oil free cold cream will also help to get rid of contaminants from the face

please be safe. carry change or small bills. tell people where you will be. have an escape plan. write important numbers on your arm, seal it with hair spray.

if you are asthmatic, carry your emergency meds or just sit it out. tear gas can kill an asthmatic. thats why i had to stop. i got gassed and almost died. please be safe.
