Two childhood friends unexpectedly reunite on opposite sides of a demonstration in 1972.
“The Photo of the 20th Century” for people from the Brittany region of France.
“If I had to choose one photo from the book La Bretagne des photographes, it would be the one taken by Jacques Gourmelen. For me, it is the region’s photo of the century. Its meaning is powerful: the aspiration to dignity. On April 6, 1972 in Saint-Brieuc, a town in Brittany, the workers from the company Joint Français went on strike. The CRS (French riot police) moved in. Face to face, are Guy Burmieux, a worker, and Jean-Yvon Antignac, a riot policeman. Jacques Gourmelen, the photographer, was covering local news for the newspaper Ouest-France. “I took the photo on instinct. Burniaux had recognized his old friend and classmate,” said the photographer to his colleague Véronique Constance, on the 40th anniversary of this legendary strike. “I saw him go toward his friend and grab him by the collar. He wept with rage and told him, ‘Go ahead and hit me while you’re at it!’ The other one didn’t move a muscle.”
This is the kind of world we live in today
If your suggestion as an administrator is to tell a teenage girl to go under the knife instead of telling a teenage boy to respect women, you are in the wrong damn line of work.
You’re in the wrong fucking state of mind, of that’s what you do. >:C

Marissa Alexander’s now faces a 60-year sentence for firing a warning shot into the wall to stop her abusive husband’s attack. Her legal team is working pro bono, but she still owes over $250,000 in legal expenses. The prosecutor, Angela Corey, is the same who couldn’t get a conviction for the murder of Trayvon Martin.
Self-defense against domestic violence does not deserve life in prison.
you realize that 1021 days is only 2.8 years right?
still fucked up, but it’s not 60 years.
One thousand and twenty-one days is the amount of time she’s already spent in prison (hence the #howmuchlonger hashtag). She is now under house arrest and awaiting retrial, which could triple her original sentence.
Each year we spend billions of dollars subsidizing profits at large international corporations because they refuse to pay their workers a living wage. It is not fair that taxpayers are footing the bill because these companies’ full-time workers are paid poverty wages and require public assistance just to be able to afford their rent and feed their families.
If these corporations won’t take action, then we will fight for their workers. Click here to tell Congress to raise the minimum wage: http://afsc.me/1nJkgBK
Bottom line: If you don’t think gigantic fast-food chains should have to pay their employees fairly, then you’re happy footing the bill for them.
