All Power To The Positive! Vol#5, Episode #37: 4th Of Their Lie(s) 2015 Mega Episode!

WUGD - 4th of July 2015

Greetings all the incredible people who supported us through the trial,

Yesterday, the jury in the trial against Beck, Gillian, Cat and me came out with a verdict of not guilty for our charge of pedestrian interference. Congratulations! We’ve beautifully, inspirationally, and super successfully supported and protected people who have taken risk to say loud and clear that Black Lives Matter. We’re hopeful that the verdict of not guilty will be strong leverage to get the city to drop the charges against the other seven solidarity activists who put their bodies on the line on MLK Day.
 
While we are extremely excited that we are no longer facing charges, we also know that the struggle continues. The day of our pre-trial hearing, a white man murdered 9 Black people in Charleston. Since our trial began, 6 Black churches have been burned down in the South.
 
In the midst of our trial one of our attorneys tried to get us off the hook by pointing out that the charge we were being charged with was really to stop begging, not protesters, legitimizing the criminalization of houseless people.
 
We need to celebrate our victories and we have been and continue to do so, but also recognize the immense privileges we had throughout this experience and continue to build movement to ensure that all people have access to the kind of care, legal defense, and inspiration that we had. We really hope that the action we took on MLK Day and how community has shown up in the course of the trial encourages you all and others to take bold action for justice in the future.
 
We’d all like to encourage you to attend the pre-trial hearings of Rashad Barber and Isaac Robinson facing more serious charges than we were and who were arrested in association with Black-led marches:
 
Rashad Barber – Pre-Trial Hearing. Monday, July 6th 1:30PM Seattle Municipal Court, #903.
Isaac Robinson- Pre Trial Hearing. Monday, July 6th at 9:00 AM Seattle Municipal Court, #903.
 
The four of us want to say THANK YOU for all the ways you’ve helped us through this process, and we’re excited to celebrate with you (info to come on that soon)…”
 
– Eliana, Cat, Beck, and Gillian;
Settler allies who locked themselves across Hwy 99 in Seattle in solidarity with Black Lives Matter; MLK, Jr. Day 2015.

“The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting. […] [Three good sergeants had been forced to move to another company] […] and one of the biggest shit bags is being put in charge of the team. […] [My battalion commander was] a conceited old fool. […] In the US army you are cut down for being honest… but if you are a conceited brown nosing shit bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank…

The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. … The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at. It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies. The few good SGTs are getting out as soon as they can, […]

I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live… We don’t even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks… We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them […]

I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

“It is impossible for capitalism to survive, primarily because the system of capitalism needs some blood to suck. Capitalism used to be like an eagle, but now its more like a vulture. It used to be strong enough to go and suck anybody’s blood whether they were strong or not. But now it has become more cowardly, like the vulture, and it can only suck the blood of the helpless. As the nations of the world free themselves, then capitalism has less victims, less to suck, and it becomes weaker and weaker. It’s only a matter of time in my opinion before it will collapse completely.”

“St. Anne’s is in Fort Albany in northern Ontario. It was open from 1904 to 1976 and had hundreds of aboriginal children from remote James Bay communities walk through its doors. A police probe from the 1990s turned up evidence of horrific abuse, including an electric chair.”
