13 thoughts on “Black Lives Matter May Day for Freddie Grey

  1. May days origins began in this country. The sad fact is,the holiday has been adopted by socialist countries. If you really want to honor this mans memory,grow some balls and push for a nationally recognized holiday. You can do it in a peaceful way too. You don’t need to be a bunch of chickenshits. Hide faces and throw rocks.

  2. Several hundred people have gathered in New York to protest the death of Freddie Gray, a Baltimore man who was critically injured in police custody, and at least 60 people have been arrested.

    Protesters Wednesday first rallied in Manhattan’s Union Square, where they chanted “no justice, no peace” and “hands up, don’t shoot,” a reference to the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, last year. Police officers stood and watched.

    A police helicopter hovered overhead, and a police loudspeaker warned the protesters that they would be arrested if they marched in the street.

    A group of protesters spilled into the street and disrupted traffic. Dozens of police officers moved in with plastic handcuffs and began making arrests while officers with batons pushed the crowd back onto the sidewalk.

  5. A l’origine du 1er mai : Lucy Parsons, la veuve des martyrs de Chicago

    HERNANDO CALVO OSPINA

    Peu avant sa pendaison, Albert écrivit à Lucy : « Tu es une femme du peuple, et je te confie au peuple… ». Le Congrès des Ouvriers Socialistes qui se tenait à Paris en 1889 déclara le 1er mai comme la journée internationale des Travailleurs et des Travailleuses. C’était en hommage aux cinq martyrs de Chicago. L’année suivante, cette journée fut commémorée pour la première fois. Lucy était déjà connue comme « La veuve mexicaine des martyrs de Chicago ».

  6. National Guard moved in. That’s something worry about. How did the song go?
    “Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,we’re finally on our own. This summer i hear the drumming,4 dead in Ohio “. Those of you that are old enough to remember will see the connection with the guard showing up. You wanna protest? Our founding fathers gave you that right. What they didn’t give you the right to was protest like savages. Out in the street blocking traffic,throwing rocks at cops (bunch of spoiled ass little girls). I know what senseless death. ’70 to early ’73 I was in southeast Asia. I would’ve been protesting the war too,but not in a violent fashion like the other idiots were doing. Bottom line a lot of y’all are still soaked behind the ears. I lost Unlcle Shaw and Cousin Mike before I went over. Aunt Mary couldn’t handle losing her husband and only child so she made her exit. Direct result of a war no one wanted. I lost a few of my people when I was in country. I know what senseless death means. What are y’all waiting for someone to die at a protest so you can have a martyr? There was a martyr in Nam. The man was a Buddhist Monk. If you run across a Buddhist,ask him about the monk. You’ll see the “true” definition of commitment. I can tell you right now, Dr. King is looking down on us all. He’s probably thinking,” this ain’t what I died for.” Remember what that man said. “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy,into a friend”. Tell you what. None of us should even have the right,to speak that mans name. Better part of y’all probably don’t remember Pol Pot from the evening news ( lot of y’all were still “daddy’s little squirt). Genocide is all you need to say about that asshole. How about Bosnia? I’m sorry. They were on the other side of the and they were not black . I have a man who works for me. He’s from Guatemala. He had to leave the country or end up taking a dirt nap. Genocide shows its ugly face again. The asshole running the show down there,don’t like Mayans. I’ve asked before ,what about the unarmed white man that was killed a while back? He was wanted for questioning in a shooting and robbery. Where the fuck were y’all at then? Where was Jesse Jacksons worthless ass at? Loss of a ” black life ” here. This is tragic. A family has lost a loved one. No Reason you can’t protest the unarmed white man being killed. Clearly human life is not the issue here. Y’all need grow the fuck up. You really wanna say you’re protesting a wrongful death. Try taking Dr. Kings route. Tell the little girls wearing the hoods and throwing rocks. Man the fuck up! You wanna throw rocks,show everyone who you are
