Artists Protest Carl Andre Retrospective with Blood.
For those unfamiliar with the story of Mendieta and Andre, a brief introduction is in order: The couple met in 1979 and married six years later, by which time both were making and selling art successfully. Andre had already been a fixture on the male-dominated Minimalist scene for years, while Mendieta and her more ephemeral, performance-based work .On the night of September 8, 1985, the pair had an argument in their apartment on the 34th floor of a building in Greenwich Village. In the course of the argument Mendieta “went out of the window,” in Andre’s words, and fell to her death. There were no eyewitnesses. No photos were taken of the body. Andre was charged with Mendieta’s murder and acquitted three years later.

Powerful Images Of DREAMers Blocking A Bus To Stop The Deportation Of Undocumented Immigrants

Immigration activists from the Arizona Dream Act Coalition were holding a vigil outside a Phoenix immigrant detention center when a bus filled with immigrants tried to leave the facility.

The DREAMers, undocumented youth brought to the country as children, and their mothers, ran towards the bus.

“It was weird, all of the families and moms everybody started running to get in front of the bus,” high-profile DREAMer, Erika Andiola, who was at the vigil, told BuzzFeed.

They surrounded the bus and didn’t let it go anywhere. 

Many of them fell to their knees in prayer while the bus flashed its lights in their faces. 

“There were people inside,” Andiola says. “Moms got on their knees and started praying.”

Photos were taken of prisoners inside the bus. A man held up his hands revealing he was chained.

Andiola, who’s mom was nearly deported earlier this year, before receiving prosecutorial discretion, couldn’t believe what she was seeing. “Seeing us chanting they started raising their arms and legs to show us their chains. My mom told me they chained her too but I didn’t think they were such big chains.”

Another woman wept while praying and waving to the DREAMers.

The standoff lasted for hours. Andiola says they were supposed to leave at 9 p.m. but stayed five hours longer.

Two DREAMers were arrested but later released. 

The standoff lasted for five hours before the bus retreated back into the Phoenix detention center.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was contacted for a statement on the incident but did not respond.

Istanbul, Turkey: Tens of thousands of protesters celebrated early Sunday after police withdrew from Taksim Square, focal point of the anti-government struggle, June 2, 2013.

Despite this important victory, the Erdogan goverment has not withdrawn its plan to build a shopping mall on the historic park. Police repression continues in the streets of Istanbul and throughout Turkey as protests grow demanding the government’s resignation.

agent orange?

takemetotheothersidex:

The government (AKP) wanted to build a shopping mall but Istanbul already has got 93 shopping malls so we’re sick of it. And they wanted to build it in taksim gezi parki. That park is really important to us it’s like Central Park in NY. They wanted to destroy our park and build a new AVM. Then out people go there to defend our park and block the government. But the police started to throw agent orange, pepper spray and hard water (firemans trucks) Lots of people died and they’re still standing there and waiting 5pm because if our war continues for 48 hours our government is going to fall. We’re walking on Atatürk’s road and we don’t want Erdogan to controle us because that’s what he’s doing. So let thw world know what the fuck is he doing to his own people and he is doing just because the defenders dont like him and dont obey him. As you can see if people dont obey him he use illegal things to torture us and he blocked the media too so when other countries are making news about us suffering in our turkish channels there’s nothing just regular things like soccer or magazine news. They blocked the phones and internet in defending places so people are stuck there without electricity and no food there are no gas masks so lots of people are poisoning and police attacks people with armed combat car and they shout like run over people so ERDOGAN= HITLER HELP US (Reblog)

Jesus Christ.
