Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week. 

This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”

 Watch the emotional video of their arrest here, and be sure to support them on Facebook here!

So, transform yourself first…Because you are young and have dreams and want to do something meaningful, that in itself, makes you our future and our hope. Keep expanding your horizon, decolonize your mind, and cross borders.

i want

to take you

to the middle of 

a wide  open  field  and 

shower you with kisses 

that seep through 

our pores and

envelop our 

bones

i want

to stand with 

you in a forest 

clearing, look up at the

velvet sky as nightfall rolls waves 

of indigo along the gradient of 

twilight and all that can

be  seen  are  the

pepper flake stars 

across god’s

canvas

i want 

to sit with 

you, be still in 

the chaos of the world

around us, blanked by the magic 

of the mundane where even 

for a moment nothing

else matters and 

time is

still

i want 

to lie with 

you, rest my hand 

across your chest and on

your  heart  as it rises,  falls,

rises, falls  with your shallow,

cool breath, puzzle pieces

of  this  organism

fitting into

yours 

i want 

to come to 

rest in you, slip 

into the plane in which 

one does not know 

where i end 

and you 

begin.

If you see something, say something. We have the right to film on-duty police and need to act when we witness misconduct.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death →

dynastylnoire:

jspark3000:

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST
