This is a video of a parade in Paris on the Eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day. Approximately 17,000 people participated. In this video the protestors first sing anti-semitic comedian Dieudonne’s Holocaust mocking song “Shoah Nanas” which translates as Holocaust Pineapples, where he blames Jewish people for his government fines for hate speech and mocks the Holocaust as a means for Jews to profit. Afterwords they chant “Juif, la France n’est pas a toi” which means “Jew, France is not for you.” 

Reblog the hell out of this. I’ve seen it before, but it never gets many notes. People are dismissing anti-semitism in France and it is killing me. 

Why am I not seeing this pass my dash every day like I do so many other causes? Why doesn’t this seem to merit even a casual reblog? Can you honestly watch this and not feel something turn cold in your soul?

Signal boosting this again. This is from January 2014. This has nothing to do with Protective Edge.

Guys, just because it’s out of the mainstream media doesn’t mean that the problems are gone. We gotta keep giving attention to these issues

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

So my school is fighting back against this principal

August 14- Principal Rich Thomas, in a senior class meeting about new rules and policies, when explaining the new phone policy, said “I don’t care if your Aunt is laying on her deathbed, you aren’t getting your cell phone back if we take it.”

Made a male student change out of his tank top in front of the school in front of him and at least 50 students into a shirt that followed the new dress code.

August 15-on- Constantly scans hallways, walkie talkie in hand, searching for students to either A. Give tardies to or B. Send to the In-School-Suspension room (ISS).

August 19- Pulled approximately 50+ female students from classrooms to be sent home over wearing gym/running shorts, made the girls who weren’t old enough to drive, and who’s parents couldn’t bring them clothes sit in ISS the rest of the day, even though this was many of their first EVER offenses.

August 20- Sent Mariah Adams home for wearing the outfit included in the picture attached.

Side notes: Was fired from Scott County High School for discrimination of the LGBTQ community members of the school.

Is forcing all students to wear lanyards with IDs to get into school.

Gives ISS after 4 total tardies in one semester, giving us 0.007% success rate in not going to ISS. With a total of 150 tardies within the first three days of school because of new, non-relenting policy.

Has expanded ISS room from capacity of 15 to capacity of 40 students with knowledge of the fact that he would be sending multiple student there for menial reasons every day.

And he also was fired before from another local school. LGBTQ Nation sent him a letter and sued the school: http://www.lgbtqnation.com/assets/2013/02/021413_Scott-County-Prom-Letter.pdf

The local news network has gotten word if the large amounts of chaos in the school and the nauseating dictatorship he’s made of our school.

We’re located in Perryville, MO. Literally and hour and half away from Ferguson.

Signal boost this, it’s important

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.

#SaveInTheFlesh Social Media Sundays - masterpost

What is it?

It is a monthly fandom event and part of the wider #SaveInTheFlesh campaign. On the last Sunday of every month at 10pm UK time, we all suddenly start talking about In The Flesh on facebook, twitter and tumblr, and we make sure that the BBC sees by tweeting at their twitter accounts, writing on their facebook walls and mentioning their blogs on tumblr.

Why a particular day at a particular time?

In The Flesh has a lively, rapidly growing fandom. But we are still relatively small. In terms of numbers, we can’t really compete with shows like Sherlock, Supernatural and Doctor Who. So we need to be more organised to get our voices heard. By all talking at the same time, we create a sudden jump in activity for In The Flesh across the BBC’s social media platforms that gets noticed and shows how much we love the show and that we want to see more. 

Does it work?

As part of the overall #SaveInTheFlesh campaign, the ultimate aim is to get a new series of In The Flesh. So we won’t know if it has worked until we hear definite news either way.

But it also brings in new fans as dashes get filled with wonderful new posts about the show. It shows the cast and crew how much we appreciate their work. And it helps bring the fandom together in a monthly celebration of the show. It works because anyone can take part, whether you are a hugely popular blog or not - your notification in the BBC’s activity feed that you want to save In The Flesh shows up just the same. You don’t have to apply to join any “network”, you don’t have to be following us or even “like” our posts about the event. You just need to make your own post or tweet and publish it along with the rest of the fandom.

Here are some success stories from the campaign:

So yes, it does work!

How to take part:

tumblr

  • Create a post - this isn’t about likes and reblogs, this is a show of numbers. It could be a bit of fan art you’ve made, a gifset, an edit, your favourite quote, a picture of your favourite character, or even just one of the images above
  • Here are screencaps for series 1 and series 2 for images and here are the scripts for quotes. Or you can use this free to use fan art from ruvillie and these free to use gifs.
  • In the caption, say how much you like the show and that you want another series
  • Include mentions of BBC Three and BBC America - do this by typing “@ bbcthree” and “@ bbcamerica” in your post without the space. When it has worked, the @ will disappear and the text will become a link. The BBC’s tumblr accounts will then get a notification when you publish the post so they’ll see that you support the show
  • Tag it saveintheflesh
  • Schedule it for 10pm UK time on the next Social Media Sunday

facebook

  • At 10pm UK time on the day, write on BBC Three’s facebook page and BBC America’s facebook page that you want a new series

twitter

  • At 10pm UK time on the day, tweet #saveintheflesh at BBC Three and BBC America
  • Hootsuite and TweetDeck both allow you to schedule tweets ahead of time, and are easy to sign up for - just use your twitter login details. 
  • After creating your own tweet, retweet a few others from the tag a few minutes later
  • Get conversations going with your fellow fans - tweet questions and answer other people’s using the hashtag. This will help get the numbers up and ensure the topic stays busy. 

To work out when 10pm UK time is where you are, use this handy time zone calculator 

The Social Media Sundays campaign is recorded in this tag on our blog. It is a part of the wider #SaveInTheFlesh campaign.

If you have any more questions about Social Media Sundays or the #SaveInTheFlesh campaign in general, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help :)
