Egyptian Black Bloc And ‘Hooligans’ Announce Plans To ‘Avenge’ Those Killed In Police Clashes And Protect Protesters
Radical opposition groups ‘Black Bloc’ and The ‘Hooligans’ announce they will head to Mansoura city in the Nile Delta where clashes have intensified between protesters and Egyptian police.
Some of the Delta cities including Mansoura are into their sixth day of civil disobedience to protest against President Mohamed Morsi, which has escalated to clashes with police, leaving one dead and dozens injured in the early hours of Saturday morning.
A statement on several Facebook pages under the opposition groups’ names reads that they will go to Mansoura on Saturday “not [to participate] in a civil disobedience, but to protect [people’s] blood and avenge the bodies that were dragged on the ground.
“We promise you that you will see a different [approach] from us… but you are the ones who forced us [into this].”
“You will see among us youth who will go to death, like you rush for life; for us martyrdom is sacred… Wait for [our anarchy] soon,” they warned.
The Black Bloc first appeared in January as a radical opposition group of young protesters on the second anniversary of the January 25 Revolution.
They participated in anti-government demonstrations and were known for blocking roadways and metro lines.
At one point, Prosecutor-General Talaat Abdallah ordered the arrest of members of the group as part of the investigations on “sabotage, rioting and intimidation of citizens.”
The clashes broke out in Mansoura after riot police reportedly fired tear gas at protesters at the Daqahliya governorate headquarters.
The calls for civil disobedience have led to protests and clashes in Egypt’s Suez Canal cities, Port Said, Ismailia and Suez and recently the Delta cities of Mahallah and Mansoura.
TW: rape/sexual assault
Hey, DC/MD/VA people! Do not book or support Amateur Thieves. Their vocalist/bassist Rick White is a rapist. Do not let this man come to your venues, consume alcohol, be around the people who support your venue, or support his band.
1st picture is from the band’s FB. 2nd picture is the current Facebook photo of the perpetrator. Here is the original post with a thorough account of what Rick White did, including the fact that he admitted to committing rape. See this updated post for more stories from other locals who have received unsolicited and unwanted advances and pictures of his penis. Including his picture in this post because this man frequents many RVA bars and shows and people NEED TO KNOW who he is.
Tumblr people! Reblog this and it will show up on Google searches. People NEED to know about the bands they’re potentially touring with, booking, or thinking about going to see play. Make sure that anyone considering booking or seeing Amateur Thieves know that they are supporting a rapist.
Do not support Amateur Thieves. Do not support rapists or reinforce rape apologist culture.
midatlantic babies take note :(
also his fucking hat
Los Afiches en la Guerra Civil Española son legendarios. Sirvieron para masificar ideas que llegaban hasta a los analfabetos. Además que marcaron un salto en el diseño y la propaganda.
Al verlos uno puede entender las ideas que se impulsaban, los debates que existían, las necesidades que se tenían.
Aquí algunos destacados, pero hay muchos más por ahí.
Shredded parade confetti on Thanksgiving Day contained sensitive police records
Unbelievable. Confetti used during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade turned out to be paper that was “shredded horizontally but still contained information from various police incident reports, including names, social security numbers, and the bank account information of Nassau County police officers and employees.” That’s one way to promote transparency, I suppose.

The BIOSHOCK Song: Instrumental Version
And when representation does exist in Western media and literature, it’s mostly for the purposes of cheap exploitation in tear-jerker movies and again, Allied back-patting. I always quote my rabbi on this but when I was discussing the obligatory mention of the Holocaust in Jewish representation in the media he said that “people don’t want to see us unless we’re dead or dying.” Which is basically what Western academia has done to the Jews, reduced our entire history in the 20th century to the Shoah. And Israel. And we’re expected to apologize for this piss-poor “representation.”
THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT. for all the talk about the “jewish-owned media” and “jewish-dominated academy” (lol), jewish stories and histories are reduced to simplistic shoah narratives that depict us as naive, unquestioning masses stumbling to our slaughter without presenting any resistance — a blatant fucking lie — or as colonizing imperialists who uncritically revisit the sins of the nazis on faceless, wailing palestinians (notice a pattern of dehumanization here?). of the few exceptions, most of which are produced by jewish people, a vast majority of them come with their own sets of problematic representations (seriously, just glance at a roth or bellow novel or take note of jokes about JAPs and jewish mothers or fucking Fiddler on the Roof). jews are continually denied a voice, denied resistance, denied representation that doesn’t cater to goyische notions of what constitutes jewishness. and, of course, jews are either anonymous, silent victims, or corrupt/ing demons bringing harm to all who encounter us.
goyim have spent so long oppressing jewish people through various forms of erasure that the simple notion of us being represented as complex human beings who refuse to be reduced to antisemitic tropes scares the shit out of them.
