anarchosyndicalism:

One hundred years ago today, striking mine workers and their families in Ludlow, Colorado were indiscriminately slaughtered by a company-hired militia and the state’s National Guard in what would be known as the Ludlow Massacre. In response, the United Mine Workers of America encouraged workers to arm themselves, resulting in 700-1,000 armed miners storming and occupying mines throughout the area.

Balko: 100 to 115 SWAT raids per day in the US

priceofliberty:

Radley Balko, a senior investigative journalist for The Huffington Post, has written a book entitled Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces.

Balko explains in great detail why Americans should become increasingly alarmed over the militarization of law enforcement agencies explaining how figures such as Daryl Gates helped accelerate the militarization of police departments, his response to those who claim law enforcement should have access to weapons and programs reserved for the military, and how citizens are beginning to hold officers who violate the law accountable.

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
Frederick Douglas
