TORTURE Saudi Arabian authorities detain blogger, torture him daily for 3 months to compel confession he is gay: REPORT

Human Rights Watch is calling on Saudi authorities to release a Yemeni blogger and human rights activist detained since April 8 after posting a video on social media in which he answered questions from his followers, including one in which he expressed support for LGBTQ people, saying: “Everyone has rights and should be able to practice them freely, including gay people.”

CONFESSION “The Police have been spying on Black reporters and activists for years. I know because I’m one of them.” A ProPublica investigation.
BLM protest in Austin yesterday.

WHY THIS MOVEMENT MAY LAST The New York Times reports, “Ever since people across the country began pouring into the streets to protest police violence, Dakota Patton has driven two hours each day to rally on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol. He has given up his gig jobs delivering food and painting houses. He is exhausted. But he has no plans to leave.

“This is bigger,” Mr. Patton, 24, said. “I’m not worried about anything else I could be doing. I want to and need to be here. As long as I need.”

As Monday marks two full weeks since the first protest sparked by the killing of George Floyd, the massive gatherings for racial justice across the country and now the world have achieved a scale and level of momentum not seen in decades. And they appear unlikely to run out anytime soon.

We’ve got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.”

THE HERO WE DESERVE “Being pro black does not mean anti-any other race. But for too long we have been oppressed and tolerated injustice and discrimination. We are immediately looked upon as criminals because the color of our skin. We can’t even celebrate without having the cops called on us, we can’t even order a coffee without having the cops called on us, we can’t even barbecue without having the cops called on us, we can’t even shop without having the cops called on us. Hundreds of people have been hurt, thousands of arrest have been made when all they had to do was make 4!! it’s 2020 and we’re still fighting racism. NO MORE!! YOU’RE EITHER BY OUR SIDE! ON OUR SIDE! OR IN OUR WAY! BLACK.LIVES.MATTER! ✊🏿✊🏽✊🏼✊🏾.”
