‘Hands Up, Don’t Ship!’ Minneapolis UPS Workers Protest Shipments to Missouri Police →

iammyfather:

amaditalks:

A dozen part-time UPS workers in Minneapolis took protest action on the job August 22, after discovering ties between Missouri law enforcement and a company, Law Enforcement Targets, whose shipments we handle each day.

Some of us removed the company’s packages from trucks that would deliver them to law enforcement. Others, in solidarity, refused to ferry these packages to their intended trailers.

Others posed with a sign reading “#handsupdontship.” The phrase “hands up, don’t shoot” has come to symbolize protest over the police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri.

We decided we could not be silent while our work was contributing to the militarized violence that police are directing at Ferguson residents in the aftermath of Brown’s death.

This is high-stakes activism. These workers are at risk losing their jobs for this. Well done, UPS folks, for sticking to your principles.

This is where unity works.  The powers use Racism to divide, we must see past the games and stand together.

Thousands protest privatization of healthcare in SpainFebruary 17, 2013

Thousands of demonstrators have marched through the streets of 16 Spanish cities Sunday to protest plans to part-privatise the public health care system, with some questioning the government’s motives.

It was the third “white tide” demonstration in Madrid, named after the colour of the medical scrubs many protesters wear.
But it was the first time cities other than the capital took part, including Barcelona, Cuenca, Murcia, Pamplona, Toledo and Zaragoza.
Protesters marched carrying banners saying “Public health is not to be sold, it’s to be defended”.
Health care and education are administered by Spain’s 17 semi-autonomous regions.
Some indebted ones, like Madrid, have announced the part-privatisation of some services, with some people openly suspicious that the move is more a political-motivated ploy than an attempt to cut costs.
Civil servant Javier Tarabilla, 31, said Spain’s welfare state was being dismantled to be handed over to the private sector.
“This is pillaging of our public services, looting something we’ve all contributed to through taxes, to give it to private companies to run for profit,” he said.
