A new report by the New York Times reveals that the US government is using illegal immigrants detained in detention centers as cheap labor. Sometimes they pay them $1 a day, sometimes not at all. The work is only supposed to benefit the detention centers, but meanwhile immigrants are being used to package meals for prisoners at other jails. Detractors are calling it a hypocritical, unlawful practice that bends many rules on the book. The Resident discusses.
Barcelona city hall has called off plans to demolish and redevelop a squatted building in one of the city’s poorest districts after four nights of violent protests.
Happening NOW: McDonald’s has closed their corporate headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois and sent executives home after thousands of protesters from around the country block the entrance to the annual shareholder’s meeting in the largest labor protest the company has ever faced. 100 protesters have so far been arrested.
Reading about abusive men and the way they think. Very unsettling and an incredible book so far. Here are my very professional notes.
what book is this?
This is from “Why Does He DO That” by Lundy Bancroft.
I’m so glad I’m seeing more and more Lundy Bancroft quotes on my dash because this book CHANGES THE LIVES OF ABUSE VICTIMS.
The programs run for rehabilitating abusive men through the courts? Bancroft DESIGNED THEM. His programs are replicated ALL OVER THE WORLD.
He literally wrote THE book on abuser rehabilitation.
Here’s a link to a pdf copy. If you haven’t read this book yet, read this book.
Can we talk about how it seems like the entirety of the book is online on PDF, this making it accessible to anyone with an internet connection?
That is how we stop abuse.
We enable everyone to know what it looks like, so that when it happens, they can shut it down.
Arm yrself with knowledge!
Changed my life, would reccomend.
Reblogging for the link to the pdf copy. Please be safe when reading it - i have been triggered just by reading 1 chapter, and my experiences were rather mild. I still highly recommend it to everyone, but be safe.
I’ve reblogged this before, but it’s worth reblogging again.
