Beating Freedom Into You by BullMoose1912 Beating Freedom Into You by BullMoose1912
In the wake of the police actions against Anaheim protestors I decided to make this. It's very simple, but I think it gets the point across.

The American and local governments make so much talk about freedom and liberty yet react with such brutality toward those who take advantage of the liberties they have been given to address grievances they have with their government.

I see your point, but "to all things there is a season". there is a time to protest, and a time to Gather suporters, Preverably amoung law inforcement so what is illistated above does not happen. Besides What is Anaheim? And were was this? California is notorious For Using police brutality against Assembly's Greater then 3. everywhere else excluding the capitol I can't imagine such a thing happening without just cause.

Capitalists ans socialist fasts are one in the same. When money runs your court system and the wealthy matter over any other demographic the police tend to crack down on the decedent poor.

The concept of 'free" trade is misleading as hell.

It implies that there is an even starting point, but if your already a billionaire tycoon and you flood the markets with venture capital funds to squeeze out the 250k companies it plays out like bigoted tyranny.

Protest it, I friggin dare you!

Only then does this picture take on its most potent appeal.

"And" rather than "ans"

And "fascists" in place of "fasts"

Excuse me..I tend to type too fast and sloppy! lol

Let's admit it. Every government that I am aware of is fucked up to the point where the things we're meant to be allowed to do get frowned upon and beaten down.

You can't protest here in the US anymore without getting the living shit beat out of you by the power abusive police...

I read an article online awhile back where they actually denied a man the occupation of policeman because he was literally, "too smart", and "Would get board with police work". Doesn't surprise me. The dumber you are, and the less you question things, the more controllable you are.

I remember reading about how some people in an especially impoverished area of Oakland turned an abandoned library, previously used for drug dealing and child prostitution, into a working library again. The people in the neighborhood all got together and cleaned everything up and put in books and everything. However, the neighborhood had to watch out 24/7 for police looking to undo all of their hard work.

Here's their Facebook page. [link]

Geez, that's f*cked up..

The building was abandoned for years, what the hell does the city care if something useful is done with it? In a place like Oakland, with extrordinarily high amounts of murder, rape, break ins, prostitution, etc., the only thing the police care about is a group of people trying to improve their community..

They have a few vids on Youtube, we should try spreading them.
