Things You Might Have Missed

The video is now up from our protest for the National Day for Prisoners. You can check it out here.

Last Friday, anonymous took down The Geo Group’s website and replaced it with a picture of Mumia.

I am so incredibly creeped out that corporations have been patenting the human genome.

Excellent piece by Laura Augustin on Granting Agency to Migrants. I love the way she questions who we label a tourist, a business traveler, or a migrant.

This moss grafitti is kinda cool.

How did I miss this hilarity the first time around? I think the ” photo of 19th century mustachioed Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata” is what really brought it over the top.  Here’s hoping you never stop being a “bit of an asshole” CD.

And finally, this story from This American Life leaves me speechless. It is about one cop who actually had some sense of ethics, a whole lot of cops who had none, and some real New York police horror stories. I really, really recommend listening to it.
