New Year, New Blogroll


Happy New Year!

In honor of the new year, I have finally, after months of procrastinating, added new links to the blogroll, updated links to blogs which have been moved to new addresses or which have just been wrong from the time I added them, and deleted dead links. I’ll keep adding — I know I didn’t remember them all. But for your reading pleasure, here are the newbies to the blogroll:

  • 78 Notes to Self
  • Baghdad Burning (River)
  • Barbara Ehrenreich
  • Broken Bodies, Broken Dreams
  • Dead Men Don’t Rape
  • Hah! (Chasing Moksha)
  • hazel8500
  • Julie Bindel
  • Lesbians Outloud
  • Nexy’s Cocoon
  • Our Bodies, Our Blog
  • Radfem Row (Vera Venom)
  • Radicals Roar
  • ReSISTERance
  • Radfem
  • Survivor of Rape and Incest
  • Tennessee Guerilla Women
  • The Gimp Parade
  • Uppity Biscuit
  • May the New Year bring us closer to a real and lasting peace, built on a foundation of justice for all people, creatures, and the earth.

    14. I wish I could remember where I got it from, as I’ve had it saved on my computer for a long time. I thought it was from Jo Freeman’s site, but I don’t see it on there now.

    17. Thanks for the links.

      I’m being threatened again, I think for what I’ve been writing in my blog about the shootings of people by my city’s police department but I really have no idea what’s going on. The police chief is going around town telling people I’m under investigation for posting or writing confidential information but won’t say what, where, when and he hasn’t said this to my face. This is after they threatened the sixth man or women of color who works in City Hall with firing, demotion or forced resignation, simply for standing up for the rights of those shot to death by our police officers to get the due process they can not find in a police agency which like all of them can’t investigate itself.

      Threatening my safety, harassing me online or on the street, blackmail threats, sick and violent pornographic fantasies, and then there’s that unexplained hit and run damage to my garage two days after I received an implied threat with my name and where I lived and how those were the only important things. But other people who have spoken out during the “safe” period of the stipulated reform are having their kids getting beaten badly enough to go to the hospital and others are being railroaded in court. Everyone who spoke out on police misconduct between 2001-2006 has become targets of harassment which begins at the top of the chain of command.

      But none of this changes the fact that the shooting of Lee Deante Brown is a bad shooting, just like the shooting of Tyisha Miller was a bad shooting. Changing a public document into one that’s suddenly “confidential” doesn’t change that.

      Sorry to write about this, but I’m tired of being silent. I won’t be silent.

    18. Never apologize about writing about this or anything like this, radfem! Rock on. This kind of thing is scary as hell, and I pray that goddess will protect you and strengthen you. I’m also adding you to my blogroll– you’re on my blogroll on my other blog, but I’ve kept meaning to add you to this one and haven’t. I have such deep respect for your work and activism.

    19. Thank you.

      It’s just blows my mind that the city manager, mayor and police chief do not have anything better to discuss like how they’re going to handle six law suits against the police department for lethal force in two years and a shooting where the officers’ versions don’t match the coroner’s report. They shut down the police commission’s ability to investigate incustody deaths, pressured the director to resign. Because the CPRC is protected by the city’s charter, this behavior is illegal and an ethics violation. The director and I are tied into some scandal, damn I’ll have to read about it in the newspaper to find out what we supposedly did!

      This is happening because I refuse to shut up about a bad shooting and because I questioned the award given by the department to an officer who I was told had posted on my site. I got the city council involved and forced an examination of that process, which angered the police chief further. His own lieutenant had screwed him over on that one by not running the oh, so embarassing nomination past him, but he blamed me because he wasn’t strong enough of a leader to face up to the decision to give this officer an award. In fact, he bailed. But then after how I put him in his place after he gave another blog visitor(who didn’t get disciplined for leaking the blog to the press) the same award(and maybe lied about his innocence), I can see why.

      When they took away the guidance of the state-mandated reforms, he had as much substance as jello.

      He actually called me up on the phone begging me to prevent the reform process from going off track. And you know what, I singlehandedly put it back on track which wasn’t easy. But of course, after our decree with the state ended, our oh-so-reform minded police chief turned back into the soldier who had been mentored by former LAPD chief, Daryl Gates.

      The hardest part is always having to take the high road, when dealing with the adolescent males we put in power. No, the hardest part is that a female community leader’s kids are getting the crap beaten out of them by a couple young police officers in one of the Latino neighborhoods.
