Joe Hill, murdered by the capitalist class on November 19th 1915
"This country" is the United States of America. It didn’t exist before white people came here and founded the land as a nation. It was a dirt-living, savage, primitive civilization. Now Indians are running casinos. No more dirt-living for them.
Savage and primitive, eh?
Who domesticated corn, beans, squash, pumpkin, pineapple, peanuts, up to 3,000 varieties of potatoes (including sweet potatoes), chili, chocolate, vanilla, bell peppers, quinoa, cashews, pecans, artichokes, strawberries, cranberries, zucchini, paprika, allspice, and literally 60% of the crops the rest of the world eats?
Who invented diapers? (Hint: It was the Inca.) Who built the first ever observatory? (Hint: It was the Arapaho on Medicine Mountain.) Who had running water before Rome did? (It was Tenochtitlan.) Who had embalming before the Egyptians did? (It was the Chinchoro.) Who had compasses before the Chinese did? (It was the Olmec.) Who had convection ovens before the convection oven was even “invented”? (It was the Wampanoag.) Who invented the 365 day calendar? (It was the Maya.) Who knew there was a black hole in the middle of the Big Dipper thousands of years before NASA did? (It was the Lakota.) Who knew the earth moved around the sun while the Catholic church still taught that the sun moved around the earth, and made it illegal to teach otherwise? (It was…well, all of us, actually. Oops.)
Who was it who came to this continent and didn’t know that drinking out of the water you just shat in is going to give you cholera? Who was it who literally banned bathing, calling it “unspiritual” and “promiscuous” and even arresting people caught bathing in select states?
But, hey, good on your people for liberating us from our filthy existence and all that… We sure would be lost without you…
White people went so far as to arrest people caught bathing? Oh boy.
I remember reading that when Spanish people got to the coast of Mexico, the so called ‘native savages’ had to put a flower to their noses, and the Spanish guys were like ‘damn, they so stupid’. No motherfucker, you stink, that’s what happens.
Lakota and Dakota grandmothers captured the Nazi flag hanging in Leith, ND and burned it. Warriors!
Omg, I want to hang out with these grandmas so hard.

“Speaking is difficult but I need to say something.
Gun violence is a big problem.
Too many people are dying.
Too many children.
We must do something.
It will be hard.
But the time is now.
You must act.
Be bold. Be courageous.
Americans are counting on you.”
—Gabby Giffords at a Senate hearing on gun violence today
Y’alls are right, gun violence is a problem. We must act to take the guns away from the police who keep murdering people left and right. We act to stop sending people with guns to other countries to murder folks. We must act to stop using flying robots to rain fire and death and pain upon innocent babies.
GO HOME KITTEN, YOU ARE DRUNK.
WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED
oh my god it’s like he started to hover away but his front half’s antigravity didn’t activate
I JUST STARED AND LAUGHED AT THIS FOR SO LONG.
LMFAOOOO THE BOLDED
“THEY TALK ABOUT VIOLENCE” I collected a whole bunch of leaflets, propaganda and flyers during the 2010 student protests. I think I got this flyer at the second or third demo after Millbank, produced by one of the anarchist affinity groups which operated at the time.

These rape protesters in India might be our new favorite people. They’re reacting to widespread comments about skirts being the cause of rape, seriously.
Let’s get something straight, the only thing responsible for rape is a rapist, if you’re blaming a woman’s clothes for her rape you’re clueless.
I grew up four blocks from 19th and Diamond, and I’m not dangerous.
Robert Huber, a writer-at-large at Philadelphia magazine, wrote a cover story this month titled “Being White in Philly.” Although both he and the story were well-intentioned, that’s not good enough because the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Today in labor history, March 8, 1908: 15,000 women workers in the needle trades take to the streets of New York City on the 51st anniversary of the 1857 protest by women garment workers. They demanded better working conditions, suffrage, and an end to child labor. March 8 has been celebrated as International Women’s Day since 1910.

We just uploaded these onto The People’s Record Facebook page. Please share any of them that you like! Click here to look through our photostream for all of these and hundreds of other photoquotes, memes & infographs.
Some relevant background information:
- The first quote is by Lyda Conley. Her and two of her sisters (Helena & Ida) camped in Huron Cemetery in 1906, after white colonizers decided to ‘sell’ the burial grounds in order to build businesses on top of the Conley sisters’ ancestors. The U.S. law passed special legislation authorizing the Secretary of Interior to sell the ‘property’. The sisters vowed that the graves would not be desecrated, they made signs like ‘Trespassers Beware,’ and built a shed, which they named ‘Fort Conley’. They armed themselves and took turns guarding the grounds, day & night. Source (with a longer interview with Lyda). The photo is of Lyda Conley (center) with another sister, Lena, and a cousin of theirs. Photo source
- Aquash (4th picture) participated in the 1972 Trail of Broken Treaties and occupation of the Department of Interior headquarters in Washington, DC; the Wounded Knee Incident in 1973; and armed occupations in Canada and Wisconsin in following years. She was murdered at the age of 30.
- If you have time, you should also read the really great full interview Margo Tamez’s quote (second to last photo) was pulled from.
