Rising from the ashes.
Euromaiden protesters/rioters have rebuilt their barricades, today. This time, they’re not simply wooden planks curved outwards to serve as a pike wall. This time, pieces of rebar, sand bags, and lots of (what looks to be) snow has been used to once again erect defenses. This time they have moved much further forwards, and are blocking the Instyutska St. entrance to the square. If Berkut wishes to break the lines, they will either have to bring in heavier equipment, or flank from Khreshchatyk St. that runs SSW-NNE.
Jordan Davis had a mother and a father. It did not save him. Trayvon Martin had a mother and a father. They could not save him. My son has a father and mother.

We cannot protect our children because racism in America is not merely a belief system but a heritage, and the inability of black parents to protect their children is an ancient tradition.On The Killing Of Jordan Davis By Michael Dunn - Atlantic Mobile (via brutereason)
