On September 9th, an Egyptian movement calling itself “Dank“-Arabic for extreme poverty, held demonstrations across the country.

A recent piece by Ahram Online  revealed that a month ago Dank started as a social media campaign calling for protests “against the increasingly high cost of life in the country and deteriorating public services.”

Aujourd’hui à Calais, la rue était solidaire avec les migrants

Aujourd’hui devait se déroulait la grande manifestation contre l’immigration organisée à Calais par une partie de l’extrême-droite radicale (Parti de la France, Sauvons Calais et le Réseau Identités). Les venues de Yvan Bennediti (dirigeant de L’Œuvre Française, ligue fasciste interdite depuis juillet 2013 suite à la mort de Clément Méric) et de Thomas Joly (néo-nazi picard ayant pris la tête du Parti de la France) avaient été annoncées en grande pompe.

Les fascistes avaient d’ailleurs commencé le week-end en fanfare en attaquant vendredi une lycéenne de 15 ans à la sortie de son école.

Seulement voilà, les calaisiens sont moins bêtes que ce que Kevin Reche et ses accolytes croyaient. Seuls 150 personnes ont fait le déplacement. Parmi eux, un grand nombre de militants d’ultra-droite étrangers au Calaisis certains portant même des t-shirts division SS ou effectuant des saluts nazis.

From AP

Video shows teens attacking guards inside the Nashville youth detention center where about 30 teens recently escaped. A disturbance broke out late Wednesday. Officials say calm has been restored. (Sept. 4)

Jim Henry, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services talks about the recent incidents in the following link. He admits that this break out was unusual because the teens who initially broke out did not run off and fend for themselves, they went to break out the rest of the teens in the detention center..

Urban Shield 2014

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 1.13.15 PMUrban Shield, a law enforcement conference that includes SWAT competitions, training exercises, briefings, and a large vendors show, is underway again in Oakland this year. The downtown Marriott hotel and conference center is packed with police officers and police-industrial contractors selling everything from machine guns to drones. Alyssa Figueroa of Alternet has a good story about Urban Shield and the protests against it this year, and Ali Winston and I wrote about the event last year.

I briefly walked through the conference this morning. What’s different this year is the size of the event. It feels bigger, and attendees said they thought there were more participants and vendors.

Here’s some photos from the vendors show.

Guns are a big deal at Urban Shield. Salesmen from Sig Sauer chat about rifles and pistols. Sig Sauer’s gun factory is located in New Hampshire.
