US politics 

This is what dictatorship looks like.

A president gets fact checked, not even censored, and suddenly he threatens to destroy the company. And he calls it "freedom of speech."

La diffusion en France d'“Algérie mon amour”, un documentaire sur le Hirak, fait scandale en Algérie. Il est le symptôme d’une relation déraisonnable à l’ancienne puissance coloniale et d’une hystérie collective, estime Le Quotidien d'Oran.courrierinternational.com/arti …

Just don't film people regardless of if there is a riot.

You don't know if people you are filming: have told their boss they are sick; are on the run; are hiding from creditors; are hiding from family abuse; aren't supposed to be where they are being filmed; really don't want to be filmed; etc.

protesting advice 

so listen, its been a while (2014) since i've been on the ground due to illness, but at one time i was learning to be a street medic and if you're preparing to go out to protest, here are some things to help you be prepared:

1: If you can help it, try not to wear contacts. you may get gassed and that junk will get stuck behind the lenses. tight swimming goggles will help you to some degree tho
2: if you have a bandanna, soak it in apple cider vinegar and keep it in a plastic bag. take it out and breath through it if you find yourself in a gas cloud. it'll give you a couple minutes of protection to get out.
3: soak a wad of paper towels in dish soap and water and keep it in a plastic baggie for emergency decontamination of your skin. rinse your eyes with clear water. milk will alleviate the pain but wont get rid of the actual contaminant, soap will
4: oil free cold cream will also help to get rid of contaminants from the face

please be safe. carry change or small bills. tell people where you will be. have an escape plan. write important numbers on your arm, seal it with hair spray.

if you are asthmatic, carry your emergency meds or just sit it out. tear gas can kill an asthmatic. thats why i had to stop. i got gassed and almost died. please be safe.

En cinq mois, de fin décembre et l'apparition déclarée du coronavirus à Wuhan (Chine centrale), à fin mai, le coronavirus a tué environ 360.000 personnes, et en a infecté plus de 5,8 millions. Des chiffres officiels à relativiser, car sans doute en-deçà de la réalité. #AFP
