1. We either live free or we die here.
    — 

    A Palestinian in Gaza, from this interview with BBC (quote begins at 2 minutes)

    Extended quote:

    Palestinian man: “We either live free or we die here.”

    Interviewer: “What about the argument that if Hamas stopped firing rockets into Israel—”

    Palestinian man: “No, no, this is not an argument. We have lived under blockade for the last seven years. We have been deprived for the last seven years. Don’t talk to me about rockets that is so tiny small. Look at this! [motioning to rubble of a destroyed neighborhood] This is a nonsense argument. We didn’t start it, they started it. In the 2008 agreement they fulfilled nothing. 2012 agreement, they fulfilled nothing. Why should we believe this time the ceasefire when they say let’s negotiate? Negotiating with the Israelis is a waste of time.”

    Elliott was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn with a tag in his ear that said “MEAT.” He had recently escaped from a live animal market in New York.

    He has since gained almost 50 pounds, and is growing strong enough to romp and play.

    After massive flooding in the Midwest in 2008, thousands of pigs were abandoned in factory farms. Among them was Nikki, who managed to save herself and gave birth in a levee. She kept her babies safe until rescuers arrived.

    She and her babies are still inseparable!

    Opie was discarded and left to die from hypothermia by a dairy producer.

    Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, rescued Opie. He later went on to become the leader of Farm Sanctuary’s cattle herd for 18 years.

    “When people get to know a farm animal, look into the eyes of a cow, a pig or a chicken, they see that they are not that different than cats or dogs. They are very much like the companion animals that people have in their houses,” Baur said. “They have memories, they develop relationships, they have complex emotional lives just like other animals.”

    Companion animals aren’t the only ones who feel and express joy, gratitude, love and happiness at the chance of a new life free from harm.

    failing to mention the names contributes to the erasure of the accomplishments of people, and especially women, of colour throughout history

    If you support Israel’s actions or believe they are justified I have no interest in talking to you. Literally none. I don’t care who you are to me. Fuck off.

    Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.”
