Police killing of Yassar Yaqub in West Yorkshire brings angry response

I’ve not been able to find any first-hand accounts or anything like that of the situation, but the Bradford Telegraph & Argus has a write-up, and there’s a bit more from the BBC. I won’t link to it, but I see the usual police/media operation of digging up any possible dirt on the victim is already in full swing. And as a reminder, if you hear of something like this going on in your area, and have a bit of time to prepare: it’s a good idea to print off a bunch of bustcards – Green & Black Cross have a selection, with this being the most relevant for the West Yorkshire area – and if you can buy a decent-sized amount of fabric from a market or somewhere, it doesn’t take much effort with a pair of scissors to turn it into a big pile of scarves/masks that you can hand out to people who might not be prepared.


About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
