fuckme50shadesofrough said: I support the Mike Brown protests all the way not since actual information has been given, but, my main issue all stands with the protestors who burned down a gas station and began looting. Did that really happen, or was that the media's idea?


Yes, the QT was burned (and was allegedly set to be remodeled anyway) and there were a few reports of looting. However you should know that there have been hundreds, if not thousands, of peaceful protesters and only a handful of looters, some who may have been from out of town. Many protesters also stepped up and protected local businesses from looters because police weren’t doing anything about it.

Here’s all the info I have on looting:

“A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.”

Anonymous said: im sorry to be so dumb but whats going on in pakistan? what are they protesting??



What’s going on: Protests, basically. It started off as a long march called the Azadi or Freedom march by PTI led by Imran Khan an opposition party in the parliament and the Inqalaab or Revolution march by PAT led by Tahir-ul-Qadri, a non entity in the parliament but someone who can pull crowds to himself. The march went from Lahore to Islamabad, the Pakistani capital, where they gave (and are still giving) a dharna, which I think is a sit in in English. These were all peaceful protests and the sit in was peaceful until yesterday, when the protesters started going toward the prime minister house after failed negotiations (and a lot more) and well, they weren’t allowed to go far because the police went in with tear gas, rubber bullets, and also in one instance, actual bullets. This has resulted in about upwards of 200 injuries and 7 people dead, 2 are critical, obviously again these are premature numbers and there’s likely to be a lot more.

Now, WHY: Simply, the march happened because of allegations of rigging in the general election of 2013 that led to Nawaz Sharif, head of the PML-N to come to power. The Lahore Incident, which is linked here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Lahore_clash), read up. Generally, also non responsiveness to valid rigging allegations, and no sign of opening up areas where these allegations exist. A lot more.

This is a very, very basic thing. I skipped military intervention in talks, the sit in was on going for two weeks, a lot more basis for the march, the entry into the Red Zone, more events. You can google and keep up with this and ask me more questions if you’re still confused. This is also an on going situation.

If I messed up something tell me I’ll fix it. Add more to this if you want.

some good sources to keep up with pakistan:



if someone wants to add on more sources that would be great!!! I’ll add more as I find sources that seem unbiased
