UPDATE: #myNYPD turns into global police accountability Twitter storm

If you need something to uplift your mood today, maybe this will do It.

Awareness of reality was shown to be alive and well today, as a NYPD twitter photo contest –intended to paint a good picture of the violent police state– ended up backfiring. Image credit: kinja.com

Instead of photos intended to blindly support the violent police state being posted, the contest ended up being flooded with photos of the NYPD violently abusing people.

There were simply too many photos to count. Here are the results from a Twitter search from the #myNYPD hashtag event:

This to a victory for awareness, and a loss for propaganda.

I hope your day was made better by this event making it clear that masses of people continue to grow in awareness, exponentially, and that we are shaping a future for ourselves, free of violence and coercion.

Please share this info with as many people as possible, especially both people who already know what the police state does and need something to better their day, and people who justify the existence of a violent monopoly on force by any means necessary.

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
