(en) Canada, UCL, Ferguson: Testimony of a protester by Collectif Emma Goldman (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 08:54:34 +0200

This is the testimony of a demonstrator present in the events Ferguson, Missouri, shared as a status on facebook page "Anarchist Memes" in French translation. Please Read This. "I have not broken a single thing when I was in Ferguson / STL (Not that there have something wrong with that, you can express all the rage as you want, the state and the Capital deserves every small chip), but my lungs are already experienced the sensation of tear gas (5 times actually). The police only leads to the streets throwing between five and ten grenades in residential areas whenever they see if only three people walking on a sidewalk. I saw the white militia (Oath Keepers / oath makers) stand on the roof, armed with guns and ready to kill protesters if they touch on any private property. It is normal that see the vehicles (Hummer) Military smash through the streets during patrols and soldiers of the National Guard will even laugh at us in greeting us from within.

I saw police dumping unflinchingly, as if they were doing something as innocuous as watering a garden, cayenne pepper in tons of protesters faces 100% peaceful. I saw a riot police line violently stop a single person on a sidewalk, calling something "illegal assembly." I saw the police laugh at the suffering of a community. And for the second time in my life I had a restless handgun in my direction by a pedestrian because I was attending a vigil for Mike Brown. The State Police has always been there and the police has existed for control the poor and the oppressed. If you can not see after the thing was exposed in a crisis, you are part of the problem criss. Keep in mind that all this was not just to keep from being accused of shooting six bullets a young unarmed man, was to prevent him from having to go to trial for doing so. The system of "justice" (useless, worthless and illegitimate) some like both, has not even been used against a gangster as Darren Wilson. It does not even have to pretend to give it a trial form. Your government is comfortable with the fact to admit openly that they will not do it and pretend that color People who saw the events with their own eyes are liars. If your conscience allows you to be complacent with situations like this, you can BELIEVE that you are a good person, but you are in fact a horrible person. Your actions reflect who you are, not your good intentions empty "
