Video – Cops fine and arrest 90 year old man who is feeding the homeless in Florida.
Isaac Davis, Contributor Waking Times Few things are more disturbing than looking at the news each day to find yet another shocking case of American police officers using excessive brutality and belligerence against the public. There is no justification for this, and as the list of egregious rights violations by the police grows, more Americans may […]
Luke Nephew, Waging Nonviolence Guest Waking Times Blood is dripping down our faces onto the stainless steel of the armored police van. The hot yellow light flickers against the angry eyes of six young black men. We are trembling in pain and rage. Our chests are heaving. We are still breathing. One man’s eyes stare into mine. “They […]
Waking Times Recent studies have shown that police are held almost completely unaccountable by the current systems of governmental oversight. Perhaps this is the reason why you are 9 times more likely to be killed by a law enforcement officer than a terrorist. Rather than wait for bloated bureaucracy or corrupt government to save the day, we as activists have […]
Zen Gardner, Guest Waking Times I find it significant that the Sandy Hook issue comes back into public consciousness repeatedly. It’s almost as if even the alternative community is baffled how these manipulating bastards were able to pull that highly publicized scam off so slickly, despite it being challenged from the get go and then […]
Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer Waking Times Something has gone terribly wrong with criminal justice in the United States and our once inspiring nation has now become a frightening police state. While occasionally we do hear a story of a police officer committing an unusually kind act, unfortunately the national media is dominated by stories of […]
Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer Waking Times While many adults would prefer to ignore it, a police state has already risen amongst the once free nations of the West. The legal framework and technology for this advanced big brother nightmare has been developing for decades, and as such, it is unlikely that the trend towards even […]
Katherine Carroll, Green Med Info Waking Times Terrorism – or the perceived threat of it – has turned democracies into paranoid armed camps in which the state feels justified in assuming that every citizen is a potential terrorist.” – John Naughton We are the last ones to board the flight to LA. It’s not the […]
Marco Torres, Prevent Disease Waking Times The nanny mentality of those who create scientific studies and government policy have increased their insanity. Researchers are now calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing. Yes, I’m serious and we’re not talking about a klingon or batleth weapon here. A team from West […]
Elizabeth Renter, Natural Society Waking Times You don’t have to sell or use drugs to be affected by the futile and expensive war our government has waged on them. Even if you do consider marijuana to be a drug, you have to recognize the giant waste of time and resources that the War on Drugs […]
Anne Gordan, RN Waking Times It appears that food, air, water, power, pets, and your physiology, etc., are targets for control. Think about it. We have already unknowingly eaten GM food, been victims of toxic environmental disasters, un-leashed depleted uranium upon the earth, yet we sit on the sidelines watching total control unfold. Today we have diseases that did not exist in […]
Jan Fox, Wakeup World Waking Times I remember in grade school that some of the boys in class were being disruptive by talking and the nun told us all to stand and put out our hands so she could smack our hand with a ruler. About half the class stood up and put out their […]
Isaac Davis Waking Times America is a deeply disturbed nation and it often seems that the myths that define our culture are in drastic conflict with the current motives and actions of our government. On July 4th, we celebrate ‘freedom,’ or at least a version of freedom that had more relevance to a young nation […]
Isaac Davis Waking Times As worldwide protests against the avarice of the banking elite and the brutality of conflict-driven governments escalate globally, we see how all too often this results in violent conflict between the forces of the State and its own unarmed citizens. Sadly, this is the norm, and we wonder if peaceful revolution […]
Lennon-Griffin has been re-occupying her home Avenue since last Mother’s Day, after being forcibly evicted in March by a SWAT team with dozens of officers and police cars. The eviction was so shocking that Lennon-Griffin’s 72-year-old neighbor ran out of her own home in her pajamas shouting, “This is not America when we are removing people from their homes!” until she was arrested along with six others.
Mothers are threatened with criminal charges, but will continue openly defying MDA; and a farmer is criminally charged for providing fresh food to mothers.
Several Minnesota moms who facilitate access to local farm food are planning to act despite the risk of criminal charges laid out in warnings from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA).
The ordinance that passed Wednesday night requires groups to obtain permission from the city before handing out any food, and imposes a fine of $500 for anyone who defies the rule. It also allows the city to designate certain organizations as “recognized” charitable food providers, which would have to adhere to certain rules mostly pertaining to cleanliness.
