The Trayvon Martin rally in NYC marched 30 blocks to Times Square

Thousands have now shut down Time Square staging a massive sit-in. Traffic stopped; no arrests so far.

This woman RIPS the Texas legislature apart, before being physically dragged from the hearing room by multiple security officers.

Seriously, just watch it.

And they drag her away and summon a man up to speak instead.

This brave young woman was not breaking any laws or being disruptive (considering that she had the floor). They removed her solely on the grounds that they did not like what she had to say. This is the current state of Texas and our country, and people seem perfectly content to just sit back and dream that someone else will solve the problems. More and more, I am reminded of Pastor Niemöller’s poem. And I am scared.

This is infuriating. Our government is meant to allow us to make a stand and yet she is silenced because a legislator disliked what she was saying.

The 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike

The strike began on February 11, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee. Citing years of poor treatment, discrimination, dangerous working conditions, and the horrifying recent deaths of Echol Cole and Robert Walker, some 1300 black sanitation workers walked off the job in protest. 

Echol Cole and Robert Walker, had been crushed in a mechanical malfunction on February 1st, 1968; city rules forbade black employees to seek shelter from rain anywhere but in the back of their compressor trucks, with the garbage.

From the beginning, strikers refused to erase the racial dimension of the issues at hand. The strike thus came to represent the broader struggle for equality within Memphis, whose many black residents lived disproportionately in poverty.  I Am A Man! emerged as the unifying civil rights theme.
