Baltimore riots: looting, fires and unrest as Freddie Gray police clashes unfurl – live

We’ve started to transcribe the full conference, here is the first part that outlines the initial unrest that occurred at Mondawmin Mall: The officers got caught on an incline to which a number of my officers got injured. I had one officer knocked out, hit on the head, he was taken to the hospital. I just checked on him, he’s doing better. I had an officer who had on his left kneecap severely damaged. As our officers preceded to push them out of that area they moved out of the area …where them and others attacked a police car, broke out the window, stomped on it, I think you have information on that. We were able to assemble resources from out of town to get up there in a rapid manner. We started to push in a westbound direction as we saw more looting taking place just west of that area.

Pourquoi les médias sont-ils si unanimes contre les mouvements sociaux ? Journalistes et éditocrates : une hostilité variable Par Henri Maler, fondateur de l’association Acrimed Pour ne pas être trop schématique, il faut distinguer selon les médias et selon les journalismes.

Pourquoi les médias sont-ils si unanimes contre les mouvements sociaux ?

Les chefferies éditoriales, chroniqueurs et éditorialistes des « grands médias », parce que ce sont les médias des alternances sans alternative entre la gauche et la droite, soutiennent peu ou prou les réformes gouvernementales ou les mesures patronales, même lorsqu’elles sont outrageusement défavorables aux salariés. Nettement enregistrée chez les éditorialistes, l’hostilité aux mouvements sociaux prend d’autres formes non dans les commentaires, mais dans les informations ou prétendues informations : en vérité une sous-information lamentable et parfaitement antidémocratique.

Russell Brand Calls On 50,000 Protesters To Stage 'Joyful Revolution'

The former Big Brother's Big Mouth presenter, who this year implored readers of the New Statesman magazine to abandon the current political system, told crowds gathered in London's Parliament Square that MPs no longer represented the people. Speaking in the shadow of the Houses of Parliament at the end of a march marking the one-year anniversary of the People's Assembly being formed, Brand stripped off his T-shirt and replaced it with one carrying the message "Firefighters rescue people not bankers".

Joyful Revolution: Brand Stripped Off His T-shirt During The Protest He said: "The people of this building (the House of Commons) generally speaking do not represent us, they represent their friends in big business. It's time for us to take back our power. "Where I grew up I felt there were low expectations. "
