    The 20-odd people chanting “Honk if you want justice,” on a New Bedford, Massachusetts sidewalk Dec. 12 got a lot of attention. They were second graders, rallying against police for the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. While the rest of their class enjoyed 11:30 recess that morning, these 7 and 8-year-old protesters stood by the side of the road in front of the Alma Del Mar Charter School holding signs including one that read, “Please don’t shoot me, Ferguson.”...

    I went down to Al Sharpton March at Freedom Plaza today, which featured the Mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner with a crowd of mostly out of towners that numbered between 8,000 to 10,000 at the height of it all. The march and rally pretty much ended with around 3pm with Sharpton making a very brief appearance and mostly White Leftwingers hijacking the march afterwards as the out of towners headed for their buses. The signage held up by these Leftists radical included environmental messages, the overthrow of the capitalist system. One sign proclaimed that, "Capitalism was the disease...

    Hundreds of protesters marched through Berkeley for hours Monday night, confronting police outside their headquarters before heading west and intermittently shutting down Interstate 80 in both directions near University Avenue. The rally, the third in as many nights, began on Telegraph Avenue near UC Berkeley around 5 p.m. as hundreds gathered to denounce police killings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York. Now-familiar chants of “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” and “Out of the houses! Into the streets!” rang out as the march moved up Durant Avenue and protesters called for students to leave their dormitories and join the...

    A BLACK MAN carrying a protest sign and a white man in an Eagles jersey stood on Pattison Avenue last night, debating race in America as cops, fans and protesters mixed together all around them. The Eagles had just lost to the Seattle Seahawks - and minutes earlier, hundreds of protesters had lain across Broad and Pattison, a "die-in" to remember the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner in Staten Island, and to raise awareness, they said, of social inequality. The black man - Bernard Lambert, 43, of Delaware County - carried a sign that read,...

    Hundreds of protesters returned to East Bay streets on Sunday for a second night of raucous demonstrations against police killings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York. Sunday’s protest started out largely peaceful in Berkeley, but by 9 p.m. crowds had climbed past lines of California Highway Patrol officers onto Highway 24 in Oakland, where they blocked multiple lanes of eastbound traffic. Even as the crowd chanted “peaceful protest,” a group of people jumped on top of two law enforcement vehicles and kicked at the sirens, and several set small fires nearby. Police eventually moved protesters away from...

    DETROIT -- Lions running back Reggie Bush, who has been outspoken about the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, continued his outspoken nature Sunday when he wore a shirt reading "I Can't Breathe" during pregame warm-ups Sunday. Bush wrote the message -- in black ink on his blue shirt -- signifying the last words of Eric Garner, the New York man who died while being placed in a chokehold as he was being arrested. Bush wore the shirt a day after Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose wore an "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt in pregame warm-ups prior to his team's game Saturday night...

    MILWAUKEE (AP/WITI) — An afternoon protest takes a criminal turn as it veers onto the interstate that lead to more than a dozen arrests. The Sheriff’s Office says the group was stopping traffic and wouldn’t leave the freeway. 14 people were arrested and booked into the Milwaukee County Jail. 3 of those people are from Ferguson, Missouri. A statement from Sheriff David Clarke says: “I have made it very clear that arrests will be made when violations of the law occur, regardless of the protesters’ motivations. Law and order will be maintained.” The group Occupy Milwaukee was behind Saturday’s protest....

    With drums, posters and a cause, 70 Dalhousie University students threaded through Halifax’s core late last month protesting rights abuses in North Korea. It was not a controversial cause — not the way abortion or any of the other hot topics of the day might be, organizer Robert Huish acknowledges. Their biggest challenge, he said, was figuring out how to keep candles lit in sub-zero temperatures. The turnout was great — perfect, even — quite likely because the participants’ academic success depended on it. Mr. Huish, a Dalhousie professor, is perhaps the first university instructor in Canada to award...

    The NAACP—disappointed Officer Darren Wilson was not indicted for the death of Michael Brown despite the evidence exonerating him—has organized and initiated a seven-day, 120-mile march called the “Journey for Justice” from Ferguson, Missouri to the state capital, Jefferson City. Roughly 150 protesters started their trek from the area where Brown was shot, near the Canfield Green Apartments; 100 were expected to make the full march, according to NAACP staff member Jamiah Adams.

It’s on all black people.” The demonstration, like those earlier in the week, was in reaction to Monday’s grand jury decision not to indict white police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. More than a dozen people chained themselves together and to BART cars, on both platforms of the West Oakland BART Station. BART officials halted...

    Police in New York arrested a number of protesters on Thursday who were apparently part of a movement to disrupt the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in order to demonstrate against the failure to indict Darren Wilson for shooting and killing Michael Brown. At least seven people were detained, according to the New York Post, which had warned in its front page today about a “plot against Snoopy.” The seven people who were arrested were apparently part of a group of people who overturned a trash can and tried to “run toward the floats,” according to WPIX-TV. “But an hour later,...

From Ferguson, Missouri, where Brown lived, to major cities like New York and Los Angeles, to places in between, the outrage over the decision was palpable. People of all ages and races hit the streets, some with signs, others holding their hands up in what’s become an oft-used way of honoring the late 18-year-old, and others lying on the pavement, outlined by chalk. While the reactions in Ferguson became at...

They were arrested as part of an FBI undercover operation near Ferguson and intended to use the explosives in pipe bombs, the source confirmed. The suspects, whose names were not released, were arraigned in federal court on Friday. FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu told CBS News the suspects were arrested on outstanding warrants. Within days, a...

According to a source on the scene Monday, protesters are standing in the yard of Landrieu’s East Capitol Street home holding signs opposing the pipeline. Protesters also brought along a mock black plastic pipeline. The source said Capitol Police and D.C. Metro Police are on the scene, but appear to be letting the protesters stand in Landrieu’s yard anyway.

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 11/17/14 | Michael Rubin
    Turkey was once one of the most religiously tolerant majority Muslim societies in its attitude toward Jews. The reason wasn’t so much tolerant political culture, but rather a belief that the Jews were a tranquil, loyal minority. After all, Turkish school books taught that while Greeks, Armenians, and Arabs all rose up against the Ottomans, the Jews did not. Hence, Turkey boasted along with Iran either the second or third largest Jewish community in the Middle East after Israel itself. In recent years, of course, this has changed. Just as...

Two of them had "Keep it Inside" written on their backs - a slogan apparently related to what followed. After bending forward, the women dropped down on to all fours, all the time...

But, theoretically, if they were going to listen to somebody on this subject, you’d think it might be the folks who are tasked with enforcing many of the related laws on a day to day basis. And on the off chance that somebody might actually be listening, there’s a sizable group of sheriffs who would like a word with the President next month. Sheriffs across the country are planning a massive gathering in...

    You can watch a video related to this article by clicking on the "Enza Ferreri Blog" link above Maybe the tide really is turning. I remember when, in the late '60s and the '70s, hardline socialist and communist groups were still struggling to get their message accepted in Europe and the West generally. They were a tiny minority then, and their agenda seemed very far-fetched and out-of-synch with ordinary people and mainstream views. It also looked liked it was going to remain that way. When, later on, I heard them screaming "Free Nelson Mandela", I didn't think it was going...

    An estimated 100,000 people protested against illegal immigration, Islamisation and the European Union at a rally organised by the Lega Nord (Northern League) in front of Milan's Cathedral, the heart of the city. The crowd was so enormous that it took two hours for everybody to get to the vast square. Demonstrators were holding banners saying "No to mosques", "Fewer illegals = fewer diseases", "Less money to refugees", and "If I catch Ebola I'll infect Alfano". Angelino Alfano is Italy's Minister of the Interior, responsible, among other things, for internal security and immigration. The main message was similar to...

About 1,000 nurses and healthcare workers attended the Planet Nurse convention on Wednesday, chanting slogans to raise awareness about the increasing danger and death from Ebola. The protesters highlighted the lack of training, equipment and isolation rooms where suspected Ebola-infected patients in the US could be quarantined. They also took part in what they called a “die-in” by laying on the ground in imitation of...

Student groups are spearheading a civil disobedience campaign along with democracy activists to pressure Beijing into granting full democracy to Hong Kong. The city's central district descended into chaos on Sunday as chanting protesters converged on police barricades surrounding their colleagues, who had earlier launched a "new era" of civil disobedience. Riot police staged repeated pepper spray and baton charges and threw tear gas at the crowds. Police...

    Those in politics who spend much of their time railing about the dangers associated with anthropogenic climate change will often assert that the public largely shares their concerns about catastrophic climate shifts. You rarely hear from those oft-cited members of the public who are supposedly alarmed by climate change alarmism. Reason Magazine’s Kmele Foster, co-host of Fox Business Network’s The Independents, revealed why that is when he took to the People’s Climate March in New York City this weekend armed with a camera and a microphone. Unsurprisingly, the People’s March more resembled a throwback anti-capitalism protest than it did...

Demonstrations by Pakistanis loyal to opposition politician Imran Khan and cleric Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri that began two weeks ago became more violent this weekend as police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse crowds. The protest movement has been camped outside of Pakistan’s parliament...

His death sparked weeks of unrest in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, centering on accusations of racial discrimination by the almost totally white police force against a majority black population.

    The violence that turns a small-town protest into a fiery national spectacle like the one that has played out this month in Missouri is often unwittingly provoked by police, according to researchers at UC Berkeley. The research team, which studied clashes between police and activists during the Occupy movement three years ago, found that protests tend to turn violent when officers use aggressive tactics, such as approaching demonstrators in riot gear or lining up in military-like formations.

    Thursday’s “National Day Of Rage” planned by the hacktivist group Anonymous against the Aug. 9 police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. failed to materialize in any remotely significant way. Anonymous had called for a protest in 37 cities. A Facebook posting dated Thursday shows that organizers had also envisioned nationwide protests in the early evening in dozens of additional cities — everywhere from Helena, Mont. (pop. 29,134) to Perryville, Mo. (pop. 8,225) The protests were a huge dud.

    The Zim Piraeus traversed the Panama Canal two weeks ago, then turned its 964-foot deck north, toward California, where it was scheduled to offload tens of thousands of tons of cargo at the Port of Oakland this weekend — just like 1,897 other container ships last year. But the Zim Piraeus, which arrived in San Francisco Bay on Sunday afternoon, is not unloading — and might not anytime soon. The problem with the Piraeus is that Israel Corporation, Israel’s largest holding company, founded by the Jewish state’s government in 1968, owns 32 percent of the Piraeus’s operator, Zim Integrated Shipping...
