Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin: I wonder if a sinkhole will swallow the entire world?
Comrade: A giant sinkhole *IS* swallowing the world as we speak; a sinkhole called "capitalism."
Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin: True, capitalism is an oppressive and exploitative economy, which is destroying the lives of millions around the world. It can be overthrown, however. A giant sinkhole is primarily a natural event, and would swallow the entire planet and destroy all human colonies, the earth crust would collapse, and most of humanity would die.

[Report-Back, Video, & Resources] Ride for Freedom : Stop the Injunctions! #EchoPark #LosAngeles #FTP"S.T.A.Y. led a bicycle ride to promote awareness and share accurate information to the community in protest of Judge Khan’s decision to grant Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer his proposed “gang” injunction.The term gang injunction is a euphemism for criminalizing various segments of traditional Echo Park community cultural and social activity that are eurocentrically viewed and labeled as potential gang activity and/or public nuisance. This includes street food vending, evangelical churches, car shows, family gatherings, Quinceaneras, Baptisms, Graduation Parties, gathering in public areas, or on one’s own property, for example– simply gathering in front of one’s own porch with family, friends, and neighbors.This social activity and association is deemed a problem primarily when it is long-term families of color who are engaged in it. In summary, the main design of this so-called ‘gang’ injunction, is that of a tool of political strategy to deceivingly remove the large remainder of long-term and Echo Park working class families from their generational family homes. Increased racial profiling and incarceration of students and other youth are a primary result of the injunction and the foremost concern for the long-term community members.” Read More: http://togetherwestay.org/bikers-zombie-cops-protest-mike-feuers-gang-injunction/Video from action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kEYDw2OpmE&noredirect=1S.T.A.Y.’s website - http://togetherwestay.org/More Gang Injunction Resources:Angela Davis Gang Injunction Rally -http://vimeo.com/20683332An Invading Army: A Civil Gang Injunction in a Southern California Chicana/O Community - http://www.palgrave-journals.com/lst/journal/v5/n4/full/8600280a.htmlYouth Justice Coalition: Getting Off A Gang Injunction -http://www.youth4justice.org/self-defense-legal-rights/getting-off-a-gang-injunctionBook (need full text): Gang Injunctions & Abatement: Using Civil Remedies to Curb Gang-Related Crimes -http://books.google.com/books?id=YnxNX-k-droC&source=gbs_navlinks_sJSTOR Article (need full text): Black Codes and Broken Windows: The Legacy of Racial Hegemony in Anti-Gang Civil Injunctions - http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/797421?uid=3739256&sid=21102112495963Book (need full text): The New Blacklists: The Threat to Civil Liberties Posed by Gang Databases -http://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr&id=VimgwrvMEOcC&oi=fnd&pg=PA109&dq=overturning+gang+injunctions&ots=Jg9gs_6BVG&sig=uovYcSl7PYUezP0NMZYqNH8YAyM#v=onepage&q&f=falsearticle: Toward the Restorative Constitution: A Restorative Justice Critique of Anti-Gang Public Nuisance Injunctions - http://digitalcommons.law.msu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1215&context=facpubs&sei-redir=1&referer=http%3A%2F%2Fscholar.google.com%2Fscholar_url%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fdigitalcommons.law.msu.edu%2Fcgi%2Fviewcontent.cgi%253Farticle%253D1215%2526context%253Dfacpubs%26sa%3DX%26scisig%3DAAGBfm0o9JDgvCisnkjaAtDoCyv2Vjvv0w%26oi%3Dscholarr#search=%22http%3A%2F%2Fdigitalcommons.law.msu.edu%2Fcgi%2Fviewcontent.cgi%3Farticle%3D1215%26context%3Dfacpubs%22article: The Fight Over Gang Injunctions: In Oakland, An Attempt to Reduce Crime Runs into Stiff Opposition -http://www.callawyer.com/clstory.cfm?eid=922757history of LA gang injunctions and lots of information about history and implementation: Gang Injunctions and Civil Abatement in Los Angeles - http://www.streetgangs.com/injunctionsTracked and Trapped - YJC’s report on gang injunctions - http://www.youth4justice.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/TrackedandTrapped.pdfOakland Gang Injunctions: Gentrification or Public Safety? - http://www.urbanhabitat.org/18-2/arnoldFighting For Peace: Alex Sanchez on wars and borders at home and abroad - http://abolitionistpaper.wordpress.com/fighting-for-peace-alex-sanchez-on-wars-and-borders-at-home-and-abroad/Gang Injunctions are Spreading, Communities are Reacting - http://www.womenprisoners.org/news/001046.html

SAY NO TO GANG INJUNCTIONS IN ECHO PARK 

RIDE FOR FREEDOM - October 26, 2013

Yesterday we didn’t march, we rode! We took the streets as a show of defiance against the militarizing forces of gentrification in Echo Park and across LA. We rode against rent increases, the loss of jobs, the influx of wealthy white capitalists, the militarization of the LAPD, and first and foremost: the impending injunction against brown youth. We heard heart-rending stories of police brutality and murder, simply for being brown or black. The police don’t watch out for us, they watch us! And they want us out any way they can, all to increase property value for the New Locals. We stand with Echo Park and every community that puts the FIGHT against the creeping police state, white supremacy, and GENTRIFICATION: the economic glue that binds these fascist forces together.

“How can I exchange solidarity in different communities?”

A white womyn asked me this yesterday because I questioned her for assuming an “organizing” role in a South Los Angeles effort she’s only supported once. She was completely bewildered.

I wish there was a way to better tumblr-ize…
