The #kraken has been #released
Shortly before midnight last night, 86-year-old activist Dorli Rainey—yes, the Dorli Rainey whose Maalox-covered pepper-sprayed face became an icon of the Occupy movement—got a text message that sheriff deputies were about to evict ironworker Jeremy Griffin from his foreclosed South Park home. So she immediately jumped in a cab and headed down to Griffin’s house to put her body on the line. Of course she did.
Twelve hours later, the sheriffs had yet to arrive, but a couple dozen fellow activists did, transforming the lawn and sidewalk in front of Griffin’s home into a kinda Occupy Seattle reunion. This is the first “eviction blockade” to be staged by SAFE (Standing Against Eviction & Foreclosure), an activist organization that grew out of Occupy Seattle, focused on helping homeowners fight back against the banks through pragmatic public protests.

Sometimes I like to take sometime to appreciate our history <3
This needs more notes!
Human Feelings as Drugs
Okay but they did that in Doctor Who and everybody became utter junkies and it practically destroyed the civilisation.
