Mark Bustos is a hair stylist at an upscale salon in New York City, but not all of his clientele have to be wealthy to get a quality trim. Sometimes, they don’t need a penny.
Jason Jones sits down with Native American activists working to change the name of the Washington Redskins.
Daniel Synder and his fanclub got slayed by actual Native people. I’m sick of people saying it related to honor, tradition and that Natives don’t care about this issue. It’s almost 2015, and we have to walk in silence about Native people and our problems because we are treated like a second hand citizen, when this was our homeland to begin with. We didn’t ask for them to come save us and convert us into little white people, we didn’t ask for the European diseases, or the genocide that occurred to Native people in the Americas. I’m also sick of other Natives, saying that it is okay and it’s alright to honor our people, it’s not okay to use a racial slur to honor our people, especially when my people were hunted and propped in museums, and our state’s capitol to display that the Red man is dead.

Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week.
This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”
Ferguson police are being sued for $40mil, +++ some of the officers are facing individual lawsuits for rights infringement. fucking break those cops.

In Nagpur, India, alleged serial rapist and murderer Akku Yadav was stabbed and stoned to death by hundreds of women who feared another injustice from corrupt authorities. When a handful were arrested for the attack, all of the women in the slum jointly claimed responsibility so that no one person could be charged for the crime. Source
