Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY! 

Just needs to be stated again! 

Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”

Seriously guys, please spread the word about this petition.

SIGN THIS because:

• cops think that Mike Brown’s life was worth less than the $3 candy bar he supposedly stole
• one white person can cry about a cop killing their dog and get a law passed requiring officers to undergo additional training to handle dogs
• but every 28 hours a black person is killed by police
• and yet at least one million dissenting voices will be required to be heard by the US government

Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.

For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.

Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.

People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.

Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”

Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.

SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.

Self defence sprays that are legal to carry and use in the United Kingdom

Image 1: Farbgel
Image 2: StoppaRed

I’ve seen a lot of people (mostly women, for reasons which may be obvious) speaking about being worried when going out, be it alone or even with friends, both in the day and at night. I know that a lot of female friends of mine carry around a can of antiperspirant or a pot of pepper to use if they’re ever attacked. What I know a lot of people don’t realise is that there are products out there which work in a violent situation and help in catching the assailant for the best part of a week afterwards.

Known as ‘criminal identifiers’, these sprays are brightly coloured dyes which can be sprayed in the face of an attacker. Unlike things such as CS or Pepper sprays, criminal identifier sprays are legal in the UK.

There’s a few available on the market, with farbgel and Mace’s Stoppared being the mostly highly recommended.

What these sprays do is release a sticky, brightly coloured dye. It’s difficult to wipe away and stains the skin a bright red colour. No matter how hard an attacker might try to remove it from their skin and clothing, the staining typically lasts for around a week and doesn’t even start to fade until after a few days have passed.

Unlike CS and Pepper sprays (which, again, aren’t legal in the UK) criminal identifier sprays don’t cause irritation or pain to an attacker. Instead, they expand and clog up the area sprayed with a kind of sticky foam that’s difficult to wipe away. It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police.

Each can of the sprays costs around £10 each, though it may be cheaper when buying multiple canisters and if you shop around.

Anonymous asked: What's wrong with sea world?

lipsredasroses:

the-goddamazon:

adviceforvegans:

What isn’t wrong with SeaWorld? Here’s just a small portion of things:

-Mother and calf separation as young as 1 years old. (In the wild, they’re together for life.)

-Artificial insemination by physically jerking off the animals and using their hands to insert the sperm.

-Though they haven’t caught wild orcas in a long time, they fund it on the sly

-Food deprivation when VIP guests visit or if there’s to be an inspection. 

-Lack of regard for the safety of trainers.

-And orcas.

-And guests.

-Spending just 0.0001% of their profit on conservation but claiming they’re huge conservationists. 

-Misinforming the public and on occasion, actually lying to them. Particularly on the life expectancy of wild orcas. 

-Claiming they support educating people to care for the ocean during their orca shows but not putting any education into their shows what so ever.

-Claiming they always do rescue and release when 1. they have NEVER released an orca (because they’re the money making machines) but 2. they never follow up on the releases they have done so for all we know, they could all be dead. Part of a good rescue and release program is a check up at least a year later, to ensure that the animal survived. SeaWorld does not do that, and instead dumps the animal back into the ocean and claims this as “success”. The following quote about SeaWorld is pretty revealing about their attitudes regarding release:

"I worked at SeaWorld in San Diego. Had my season pass. My husband was a bait fisherman in SD. He and other commercial fisherman complained constantly that when Sea world rescued injured sea lions they would try to train them and if they were untrainable they would release them and the sea lion is half trained and not fearful of humans. These sea lions become a problem and as a result are killed by fisherman. I worked in the employee lounge at sea world and I heard trainers talk about the release of animals that they tried to train. I heard the concern for certain ones.I do not believe that SeaWorld should be allowed to capture and train any more whales and they should not be allowed to breed anymore.” - comment from Tonya Belden, worked at SeaWorld San Diego.

And another quote from this link:

"As for the rescue program…Some were saved and released, but if it didn’t bring in money, it was not considered valuable by the management.

We rescued a Risso’s dolphin in TX and worked day and night to bring that little guy (Turbo) up to healthy status. They moved her to the whale and dolphin stadium, gave her several types of psychotropic drugs, and she died within hours of receiving the drugs. The use of psychotropic drugs was NOT uncommon. When the Vet (Les Dalton) got the call saying she had died, his response was “Well, we got rid of that problem, didn’t we”.”

-Encouraging fishing tournaments despite the over fishing issue.

-Applying for permits to harvest sex organs from slaughtered dolphins

-They won’t hire ‘ugly’ trainers

-Claiming they don’t have enough money to retire their animals but the CEO threw himself a $3 million dollar birthday in his mansion that’s larger than all the SeaWorld orca tanks combined.

-Calling the diets of their orcas ‘restaurant quality’ when in reality, it doesn’t even match what they’d have eaten in the wild.

-They drug their animals.

-Dumping litres and litres of toxic chemicals into the ocean then having the audacity to say that they are all about saving it.

-Forcing orcas to get onto the ‘slide out’ (where they sit out of water and have their organs crushed under their vast weight). This includes heavily pregnant orcas. See ‘Gudrun' but if you want a more recent example, they’re still doing this to Kalia right now

-Inbreeding.

-Forcing infants to become pregnant.

-Overcrowded conditions.

I could go on…

If you haven’t watched “Blackfish” on Netflix, I suggest you do. Sea World is the absolute literal worst and I’m surprised PETA’s crazy asses haven’t protested yet because this is animal abuse, neglect, and mistreatment and that’s supposedly right up their alley.

PETA has protested SeaWorld, they brought them to court but it went no where. Granted, PETA seems more interested in shaming people for not being vegan than doing anything useful.
