This is my love letter to all the queer musicians out there, making art and kicking ass. If there's an artist you think I should know about, please let me know, I love new music! (I also reblog/post on general queer and trans stuff, radical news, and instances when the world is fucked, and when it isn't!)

NYPD arrests at #OCCUPYWALLSTREET protest - Tuesday 20 September

Details are still somewhat unclear, but it appears that several more OWS occupiers were arrested this morning as police stormed the camp and began to dismantle the tarps and tents that were erected in an attempt to shield occupiers from the oncoming rain. This video demonstrates a marked increase in the police department’s aggression in this latest encounter.

According to reports, at least one occupier was injured when they were slammed down on the sidewalk, breaking their teeth.

We are monitoring the feeds and will keep you up-to-date with the situation as we get the news.

UPDATE: The media centre at the camp sends the following message via FB:

“We are vulnerable now. We need more bodies and more lawyers now. Deep concern that the police may attempt to remove us. Please spread the word now…”

trigger warning for police brutality.

outrageous! cops strangling protestors on the ground, handcuffs too tight to the point of bleeding, ignoring the national lawyer’s guild’s requests, protestors being dragged out of tents, tarps being ripped off by the cops…

Signal boosting for anyone in the NYC area who is able and willing to help, or has access to resources to help out those at the ongoing protest.
