"The Weather Underground" (2002) is a documentary about a radical anti-war group of the same name that teamed up with the Black Panthers in the late sixties to violently confront the US Government after being convinced peaceful protest didn't work. Acting separately from the Panthers, they planted bombs in government buildings, blowing them up, trying to get their point across. This film neither condones nor condemns their actions, rather it just tells their story flatly. To the WU's credit, no one was injured in their attacks, causing only property damage. The film did a nice job of depicting the social/political climate in America during the Vietnam war, but overall, I found this a bit dry. I should probably watch it again to see how it fares on a second viewing. #theweatherunderground #documentary #samgreen #politicalprotest

A man yells to the crowd during the anti-sharia protests in Denver on Saturday, June 10. The rally in Denver was mostly non-violent, though some scuffles erupted between protestors and liberal counter-demonstrators in other cities. These events reflect a growth of Islamophobia in the country. For instance, the number of explicitly anti-Muslim groups in the U.S. nearly tripled from 2015 to the end of 2016, to over 100 nationwide. ⠀

Very interesting discussion on @abcradionational today. Should we be boycotting Ivanka Trump's jewellery if we're against her father's politics? Photo borrowed from @usweekly #womeninbusiness #uspolitics #influencermarketing #politicalprotest

In 1963, a protestor scrawled the words “End White Supremacy” onto a sign and carried it during a civil rights march in New York. Over 50 years have passed and, disgracefully, the message pleading for the most essential of human rights remains just as relevant. ⠀

In 2008, digging through archival photographs, artist Sam Durant found an image of the ‘60s sign. Durant creates large-scale lightboxes featuring language culled from various protests and demonstrations throughout history, often focusing on the Civil Rights Movement and Black Panther protests. He gravitates towards words whose relevance is not bound up with any one time or event, whose message resounds regardless.⠀

The artist scanned and cropped the sign’s language to create one such text-based artwork, which was mounted on the exterior of New York’s Paula Cooper Gallery just around the time America elected its first black president until 2009.⠀

On Nov. 29, however, the piece was restored to the Paula Cooper Gallery facade. The sign’s return is a response to the recent election of Donald Trump, who, as a candidate, was widely accused of feeding off the racism, misogyny and xenophobia lingering on the fringes of the American psyche, giving bigotry a platform and ushering it into the mainstream...

#trump is in town, so naturally I had to go see the circus. I couldn't care less about politics, but I did learn that a clitoris is a miniature opposable thumb. #bipartisan #politicalprotest #nashville

Two fluffy chicks. Guess who would have laid an egg when he looked out his bedroom window. American dissonance at its best. 👏👏👏This literally popped up this morning strategically placed between the White House South Lawn and the Washington Monument. In others words in complete view of the White House living quarters. #thewhitehouse #fluffychicken #politicalprotest #dissonance #angrybird #politicalstatement #roomwithaview #combover #colourcoordinated #theellipse #trumped #orange

Hoje é um dia muito especial pra mim. Saiu pela Seminal Records Arcabouço, meu mais recente trabalho de ruído experimental com o A-tros, mantendo meu posicionamento objurgatório à ditadura militar brasileira e ao governo golpista que chafurda em nossas caras. Tortura nunca mais!
Um agradecimento especial para @baluria pela participação em "homem de barbárie", ao @aquilesguimaraes pela maravilhosa arte de capa com suas estampas da série "datilograficas", por todo o tempo e trabalho despendido na masterização e o pessoal da seminal records. Valeu!
