Help the fight against police brutality!

You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:
7 Rules for Recording Police
Know Your Rights: Photographers
Tips for Recording Police Interactions
Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter.  Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police.  Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.

Stay woke.

There’s an app by the New Jersey ACLU called Police Tape that not only lets you record video and audio discreetly, but the data is backed up in the ACLU servers, meaning you will retain a copy of the recording should your phone be confiscated or destroyed.
Despite the laws in some states, The Supreme Court says you have the right to record police, and so does the Department of Justice.
I’d appreciate if you reblogged this, to get the word out.

"I think that poetry is essential in that it’s the essence of what we are. And that, if we could listen to it and find it, we can be healed. We’re all sick. I mean we’re living sick lives — it’s obvious. And we’re killing the planet. But poetry tells us what we’re made out of, really. What our minds are. I mean, we’re minds! We’re not bodies, we’re minds. But we’re minds that evidence themselves as these bodies and these bodies do feel a lot of pain. But so much of it takes place inside here, inside the head. And it can be healed."

I have been working on translating the work of the late Afghani poet Nadia Anjuman from the original Persian-Dari into English with the assistance of Marina Omar over the past few years. I’m so thrilled a few poems from this project are in the latest (and last) issue of Aufgabe.

Excerpt above, more info here.
