This is fucking important! Sign and reblog.

wow this is outrageous, why isn’t this going around? from the link:

Infinito Gold, a Canadian mining company, just slapped Costa Rica with a $1 billion lawsuit simply because the country decided its rainforests were more important than an open-pit gold mine.

Lauded as one of the countries with the most beautiful rainforests, it’s no wonder Costa Rica rejected Infinito’s mine. Costa Rica’s rainforest is home to many endangered species such the green macaw. Gold mining also uses toxic chemicals such as cyanide, which often leaks into and pollutes nearby lakes and rivers.

A subsidiary of Infinito Gold has announced that a massive lawsuit is “imminent”, so we need to act now. If thousands of us stand together, we can show Infinito that countries such as Costa Rica should have the right to protect their rainforests without being persecuted by corporations.

How the fuck do you sue a country because they do what’s best for their environment and won’t let you exploit their land?

NOOOO I GREW UP THERE THIS IS AWFUL

UM excuse me. You guys are PROUD of yourselves for accomplishing this. AND YET WE STILL  HAVEN’T REACHED ENOUGH SIGNATURES  TO SAVE NET NEUTRALITY???  https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/restore-net-neutrality-directing-fcc-classify-internet-providers-common-carriers/5CWS1M4P

Are you guys FUCKING KIDDING ME?!  Shows you what people think is more important. Justin-fucking-Bieber. Yeah he did shitty things and yeah he should be made to answer for them, but YOU GUYS.

Go help solve REAL WORLD PROBLEMS. PROBLEMS THAT WILL AFFECT YOU MORE DIRECTLY. If you knew about both of these issues and signed the Justin Beiber one and ignored Net Neutrality YOU SHOULD BE FUCKING ASHAMED. If you didn’t know about net neutrality and signed the Justin Beiber petition… well you know NOW. You have an account. Which means you have no excuse to not sign. And if you continue to ignore then… well…

FUCK I’M SO MAD AND DISAPPOINTED RIGHT NOW.

For serious guys, everyone hate Justin Bieber but can we focus on something that actually tangibly affects us for once?

A great example of why you don’t have any idea what is happening in the world around you. I don’t generally blog this stuff but, you Should know Time Magazine is not the only media to do this. .

DM can stand for Direct Messages in Twitter or the Daily Mail out there in the big bad world. I don’t read either, and all my friends know that I never read British newspapers of any kind.

Nonetheless there are always those that like to sympathise: today I’ve had plenty of, “Ooh you seem to have…

It’s time to start paying attention to what’s going on in Russia in case you haven’t yet. Putin has declared war on the gay community. He’s made it illegal to promote homosexuality in theater, film, tv, print that in any way could be seen by youth. In other words anything gay is now pornography.

This is what the school-to-prison pipeline looks like. This is how black youth are criminalized.

  1. She was doing a science experiment
  2. She’s being charged as an ADULT
  3. She’s being charged with a FELONY

If this all goes the way the prosecution wants, this young woman will be LEGALLY discriminated against for the rest of her life. No voting, housing discrimination,  employment discrimination (as if getting a job while black isn’t hard enough), etc. etc.

Perhaps instead of fighting about who is tougher, Batman or Iron Man, we could spend a little internet rage making sure this young scientist doesn’t go to prison?

From the comments section:

To everyone commenting on this thread that is outraged by this chain of events: I am just as outraged as you. But it is not enough for us simply to vent on message boards because nothing gets accomplished. I strongly urge you to write a letter to the school district, local authorities, AND to the Principal. Or just pick one…but DO SOMETHING!!! And let us remember that in order to get our points across we must be INDIGNANT and DIGNIFIED! I am in the process of starting a petition, once I have gathered some more crucial facts. Please be on the lookout for this petition and be sure to sign it ( via Change.org ) in addition to your letter or letters to Polk County Law Officials, The school Principal, and the School Administration.

If we can all take 5-10 minutes to read this story, comment, and read posts by others then surely we can take the same amount of time to act on this child’s behalf.”

The petition is up.

Let’s not let Kiera Wilmot’s situation drift out of our consciousness. Let’s continue paying attention to this story until she is NOT a felon and NOT expelled. 

To be clear, I did this EXACT THING in ninth grade. THE EXACT SAME THING without consulting my science teacher and with significantly more explosive power. For some reason…not sure why…I was not arrested, handcuffed, expelled, or put in jail. If I had been, I can guarantee I would not be where I am now.

The goal is simple - we thank Hussie for everything he’s done for us. For all the updates, all the people he’s met, everything he’s had to deal with - for making Homestuck. He made something far bigger than he could have imagined. I think it’s time we thanked him.
Everyone who reblogs this will have their URL added to a text file. At the end of April it will be emailed to him along explaining that these are all the people who want to personally thank him for what he does.
