August 10th 2012 – In this week’s Smash the State we feature a two part show, with this one featuring an ACAB report and an update on the Red Square revolt in Quebec. We have articles looking at undercover pigs in England fathering children with activists, running away from those responsibilities, then stalking the child and mother for the following years; the announcement that new York city wont support the pepper-spraying cop who attacked caged women; and a report on the murder of a refugee by Lethbridge cops.
The report then looks at a rabble.ca piece showing bullying by toronto police at a neighbourhood assembly in toronto, which also shows how the TPS benefit when kids shoot each other. And we read the disgusting story of a cop who will not spend time in jail for having sex with a 15 year old girl he got drunk and high with.
We then shift to an update about the Quebec student/social strike, with a piece from @TeamCarmelle on neighbourhood assemblies, and another talking about the convergence and the stopping the restarting of classes.
The revolutionary musical interludes this week included propaghandi's failed statesand there is also a communiqué from the anti-capitalist, pro-community invisible army of defaulters.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
