“Hands up, don’t shoot”

Dear Readers,

It is the one year anniversary of the killing of Michael Brown, age 18, in Ferguson, MO.

I made this shortly after I learned about the incident and posted about it here.

Don't Shoot!
Don’t Shoot!

And there have been so many horrific deaths since.

It feels never ending.

Sending love.

Hands up-Don’t shoot!

Dear Readers,

I made this drawing after the horrifying and maddening news of Michael Brown’s death by police shooting in Ferguson, MO.

Don't Shoot!
Don’t Shoot!

Here are a few articles and videos that have caught my eye since:

From Melissa Harris Perry at MSNBC: “No rights which the white man was bound to respect.”

On the connection to climate movement by Deirdre Smith via Common Dreams.org

From Last Week Tonight’s  John Oliver

And some satire, too -How we’d cover Ferguson if it happened in another country- by Max Fisher at Vox

Love and peace,

Elana

Thanks for the warm welcome back!

Dear Readers,

I was NOT expecting such a warm welcome back. A whole bunch of new people subscribed. I heard from old and new friends. Very cool.

Been nodding my head, YES,  to this:
