I disagree with rules that discourage student-athletes from making money, whether it’s from having a legal hustle, working long hours or accepting gifts from other people.
Jonathan Alexander from Got to Make Ends Meet
The work of independent media is to tell the history of social struggle in the world.
Subcomandante Marcos from Our Word is Our Weapon  (via matthewrphillips)
No gift is entirely free. You exchange your future for another’s expectation; to take the handout is to become a part of a story that’s never entirely yours, to dress yourself in the hand-me-downs of your ancestors. You take on the customs of your class, as my father had when he performed the thoroughly ritualized theater of my disinheritance, and as I would too, someday. I also began to understand that the system or society — whatever one wants to call it — actually had a high tolerance for failure, indeed required it. A few go up, but most sink down and subside into irrelevance, stonelike or cowlike life. At every level, in neighborhoods, teams, jobs, schools and universities, there is a sorting, a sifting, or a threshing. The individual strides into her or her own over the bodies of the fallen, not even recognizing them as bodies, much as I’d plowed my way over the crisped, fallen leaves on the windy paths of Riverside Park.

Jailed dissident rapper El Haqed (Mouad Belghouat), one of the most internationally notable figures of Moroccan resistance to the monarchy, has begun a 48-hour hunger strike to protest his one-year prison sentence (handed down May 11th). The prison sentence was the result of his song, “Kilaab Ad-Dawla (Dogs of the State),” which insulted state security and police, and it was his second arrest.
He is currently in Oukacha prison in Casablanca, where his friend Maria Karim says the conditions are “scandalous.” A new hearing for Belghouat has been postponed until July 23rd.
