**please share** Richmond Public School Walk Out

Many Richmond public schools are in a state of embarrassing disrepair. Many of our buildings are aged but some are worse off than others. 
Carver Elementary School has a rodent infestation. 
At Fairfield Court Elementary School a ceiling tile fell on a student. 
The ceilings at Thompson Middle School leak tar tainted water. 
Armstrong High School has been infiltrated by both rodents and snakes. 
These conditions continue to worsen as time passes and are simply disregarded by school officials, City Hall, the mayor, and many others. Funds could be allocated to repair our dilapidated schools (as was done for the Redskins training camp) if those in charge saw it as a priority. Instead however, the officials of Richmond brush off the needs of RPS students. We are not their priority. They fail to see the value in our education or even our general well-being. They must be reminded of our numbers so that they may see our value.
Join walk out on April 28, 2014. Help us show our city the faces of those they neglect.

**For students of Open High School we will walk out of class at 8:30 and walk together to city hall. If you do not attend Open please meet us in front of city hall at 9:00 for the protest. Feel free to bing posters or signs but remember this is a peaceful protest!

National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon

cunthulhu:

Hey! You! 

Please click on that link and donate to my team so we can give all the money to RRFP so they can give all the money to poor people seeking abortion access and care in virginia. It’s really that simple. That’s what I love about working with RRFP.. the core of the work is just doing whatever we can to make sure that people who are facing the many many MANY barriers to abortion care across the state of Virginia can overcome enough of them to get the abortion care that they need.

RRFP is doing lots of other stuff in addition to this, with no paid staff and a completely grass roots structure. I’m personally really excited to begin offering some sort of abortion doula services, specifically for women and people of color who are coming to Richmond for clinic visits, in the upcoming months.

RRFP also hosts workshops, speak outs, participates in rallies and marches, etc etc. But the core of what’s going on is that we need to get $$$ to people who can’t afford the life-saving procedure that they need. And for that, we need donations.

So click that link please please, and give whatever amount you can. If 10 people give $3, that could pay for a bus ticket for someone in rural VA to get to Richmond for a clinic visit. If 10 people give $10, that can pay for a babysitter for the two days they have to be out of town, thanks to the mandatory 24 hour wait time between the initial clinic visit and the actual abortion procedure. 

Thanks for reading and please reblog! <3 

Hi friends!!! So, RRFP is about $26,000 away from our goal this year….. i don’t really know how to convey how scary or heartbreaking that is. Today is the last day of the fundraiser y’all. 

It’s like, for the past couple years the bowl-a-thon has generated a really amazing amount of money, and RRFP has been able to fund a lot of people needing abortion care in VA. And if we don’t make that $26,000 this time, for real people will be turned away. This is the furthest RRFP has been from reaching our goal in the time that i’ve been involved with the organization. 

This year a woman who RRFP helped to literally save her own life last year is fundraising, and I am just thinking about how if last year we were this far below our goal, she wouldn’t have been funded. 

And this year there’s so many new things RRFP is trying to do, outside of just straight up funding people, and how are we gonna do any of that now if we can’t provide the core of RRFP’s services? 

Anywayssss, today is the last day to donate to RRFP through the bowl-a-thon. I know this is a sad and not very eloquent post, but please reblog and donate if you can! I’m totally holding our for a miracle. 

i want to cry because all these cute lil black babies came into my office just now with some weird old white dude for some kind of program to meet with a professor, they were all very excited to play with the condoms and lube on our desk, lol oops, and the building inspector who is always around, a black woman, came up to me saying “child i gotta leave, i’m allergic to these little hood rats.” what the fuck man. what is wrong with these people. i cant trust nobody.

A photograph from the 1870’s showing tens of thousands of bison skulls. They were mass slaughtered by the U.S. Army to make room for cattle and force Native American tribes into starvation.


[bolding mine]
Mass slaughter of buffalo and bison took place in Canadian territory as well, and was part of a deliberate campaign to break Indigenous resistance to (further) settler incursions onto Native land and the railroad.  The removal of the buffalo also meant that when it came time to sign treaties, the Canadian government could more or less set any terms it saw fit and Indigenous leaders basically had to comply with them or their people would freeze and starve (that’s if gov officials even bothered to translate the actual terms of the treaty at all).
The “disappearance” of the buffalo is narrativized as part of a larger myth surrounding the “disappearing Indian” whose absence clears the land for the incoming white pioneers to take their place.  The murder, destruction, slaughter of bison and buffalo was a tactic essential to the genocidal colonial project.
