Occupy Oakland Clashes With OPD- War Veteran Has Skull Fractured From Being Hit by Flash Bang Canister. Sign the Petition to Jean Quan for Justice!!

As if the OPD didn’t already have a bad rep, they have caused a war veteran who was peacefully protesting brain damage. Occupy Oakland, an extension of occupy Wall Street, was hit with tear gas, flashbang canisters, and ultimately, complete disregard to our constitutional right to peacefully protest. This is bullshit! Policy critically needs to change. Attitudes of law enforcement and government need reform. The people are getting sick of oppression and brutality. Enough is enough!!!

Link to the petition to Jean Quan, telling her that peaceful assembly is a constitutional right, and police brutality needs to stop!!

“The Mayor of Oakland — and mayors and city governments across the country — should get on the right side of history and honor all Americans’ freedom to peacefully assemble and to civically engage.Public officials must listen to the grievances of this popular movement. It is absolutely unacceptable to attempt to dissuade civic engagement through the use of brutality, repression and retaliation against movement participants. This is America. All Americans have the freedom to peacefully protest our government. That right defines who we are as a country and a people, and when it is denied, all of America is the poorer for it”.  Leanne Maxwell

California Inmate Hunger Strike Against Inhumane Conditions- Sign the Petition!!!

Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity | amplifying the voices of CA prisoners on hunger strike

The penal system in California has been long overdue for reform. Prisoners have been denied constitutional rights and have been subjected to dehumanization, abuse, and stigmatized “racial” segregation. We need to work together to rebuild the “justice” system from the ground up- from biased police profiling and brutality, inadequate court processes, and inhumane jails/prisons that vilify as well exacerbate inmates’ problems- instead of using social programs to help the PEOPLE (not assumed criminals) forced to be there.

The APA Is Not Only Bias, But Unpunctual As Well

DSM 5 Keeps Missing Its Deadlines | Psychology Today

Classification

 

The DSM V was scheduled to come out this year. The APA had already put this off for a year from last year. Now, they are saying it will be published in 2013. From what I have read from drafts, there are some pretty outlandish labels from Transvestic Fetishism, to Sensory Processing Disorder. A man who likes to wear women’s clothes is classified as a parapheliac, and is in the same category as pedophiles and zoophiles (people that have romantic relationships with animals). It is time for a REAL revision of the DSM, or to simply leave it in the archaic, stigmatizing past.

Save a Fetus! Kill a Living Person! Who’s down with GOP? Sure not me!

These Teabaggers boil my blood. How is it that they want to shut down Planned Parenthood because they “perform the most abortions in the U.S.”, but the GOP has not proposed to cut any money out of national defense? If I’m not mistaken, it trumps the money in PP by billions. Oh, wow, for the 2012 national defense budget, $553 billion for the base budget alone, an increase of $22 billion above the 2010 appropriation. Planned Parenthood-$363.2 million came from tax- payers in the form of government grants and contracts last year. AM I MISSING SOMETHING? 

Here’s some great ideas-
1. Bring the troops home! Or, at least an enormous amount.
2. Stop making nuclear weapons.
3. Stop spending asinine amounts of health budget money on biological warfare research, etc.
4. Lower EVERYONE working in congress’ salaries.
5. Next time, give money to the people, instead of the banks and companies who had a huge hand in this collapsing economy, through negligence and greed.
