this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

Wikileaks Reveals Israeli Strategies Against Gaza | tele sur
Israel has been maliciously targeting Gaza’s economy since the 1980s and the U.S. has had full knowledge of the wider premeditated strategies against the people of Palestine, including the complete destruction of towns without consideration of civilian population, according to documents revealed Monday by Wikileaks. 
According to the documents, Israel’s National Security Council (NSC) calculated how much money they would allow into Gaza, with the intention of maintaining the economy at it’s minimum capacity, restricting the people of Palestine below poverty levels.
“The NSC acts upon the belief that Gaza should receive enough money to cover basic needs of it’s population, but it’s not interested in letting Gaza’s economy go back to a normal state,” reads one of the documents.
Furthermore, the cables report on different issues, such as the destruction of U.N. centers in Gaza, the creation of Hamas, and the wars on Lebanon. 
​Some of 3,925 cables describe the military strategy of destroying complete towns, regardless of civilian population, dubbed “Dahiya Doctrine” by the Embassy. The policy is based on the destruction by the Israeli military of the lebanese town on 2006. 
In a meeting in 2008 between the U.S. Embassy in Tel-Aviv and the Israeli Commander Gadi Eisenkot to discussi the attack on Dahiya, in southern Lebanon, the latter assured the United States diplomatic mission that their strategy was based on “causing great damage and destruction,” and claimed that these were not “towns, they are military bases.”
Eisenkot was referring to towns like Bint Jbeil and others in southern Lebanon which were heavily and indiscriminately shelled during Israel’s second war against Lebanon.
According to one of the cables, the U.N. concludes that during the destruction of it’s facilities in Gaza between 2008 and 2009, “the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) breached the inviolability and immunity of U.N. premises…the IDF did not take sufficient precautions to fulfill its responsibilities to protect U.N. property and personnel and civilians taking shelter therein.”
The leaks are being revealed as yet another U.N. administered school was destroyed yesterday by Israeli bombings, which have now killed over 1,860 Palestinians. During the 28-day inhumane attacks on Gaza, Israel has also injured over 9,000 people, of which over 80 percent are innocent civilians, including over 400 children.

I remember the days when games were about worlds you could explore and about being good, and not about who's got representation and gender this and sexuality that. I miss those days.

Those days miss you, too. I recently found a yellowed letter under one of the floorboards, and it was addressed to you and signed by those days with a tear-stained kiss of lipstick.

Meanwhile, in the present, those of us who work in the industry and who are somehow able to consider more than one idea at the same time, will continue to create good games about worlds you can explore AND occasionally talk about inclusivity.

If you are feeling compassion fatigue, I think it might be okay to sit out those discussions, at least until you get your strength back. While it will be tough not having you available for close consultation, somehow we will soldier on.

*slow clap*

Photographer Lassi Rautiainen recently captured the profound partnership between a she-wolf and a brown bear in the wilds of northern Finland. For days, he witnessed the strange pair meet every evening to share food after a hard day of hunting. No one knows when or how this relationship was formed, “but it is certain that by now each of them needs the other.” - Source
