Indigenous resistance in the Americas is not a story that ends centuries ago with the survivors of genocide left in poverty on reservations – it is still being written. The M’ikmaq people of the Elsipogtog First Nation took a stand against corporate resource extraction in 2013 when they spent months sabotaging efforts to start fracking near their land. When they blockaded the Southwestern Energy subsidiary’s exploratory trucks, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police moved in with overwhelming force, pointing snipers at areas with small children and M’ikmaq elders. Someone in the community responded by setting five RCMP vehicles on the scene afire, and other police vehicles were damaged in later clashes. The fracking still hasn’t begun, and at least one Canadian province has since banned fracking, proving that, once again, direct action gets the goods. … [Read more...] about 9 Historical Triumphs to Make You Rethink Property Destruction

What it would mean is that the Constitution would no longer protect the right to own a gun as a fundamental, constitutionally guaranteed right. Rather, the right to own a gun would be treated the same way the right to drive a car and the right to purchase almost every other consumer product is treated — as subject to legislative majorities. … [Read more...] about On Being Anti-Gun in Gun-Loving America
"The film has more action than any film I've ever done. It has a plethora of action sequences that [John David Washington took] the lead in. So he gets to do all kinds of different things. That athleticism also puts itself into the way he walks down the street and the way he talks and the way he moves." RELATED: Are Tenet and Inception Connected? John David Washington Weighs In Coming from the guy who made the Dark Knight trilogy, the declaration that Tenet will take things even further in the action department has us wondering what kind of violent spectacle we will get to see in the new film that would exceed scenes of Batman fighting an army of ninjas, Gotham mobsters, and supervillains like Joker and Bane. … [Read more...] about Tenet Is Packed with More Action Than Any Other Christopher Nolan Movie
