Cameron Domadgee

  • Indigenous Australian 
  • Arrested for being drunk
  • killed in police custody
  • eye witness says he saw officer Chris Hurley beating him with his fist, saying "you had enough Mr. Doomadgee. You want some more?"
  • police station footage shows Cameron  screaming in pain for hours until he passed away in his cell of internal bleeding
  • All officers present at the police station that evening had a BBQ, at which events of the day were discussed and statements to protect Hurley were prepared
  • Hurley said that he and Cameron “tripped” and “fell” as they were entering the police station, causing Cameron’s internal damage and death
  • the Palm Island police force, the very people who set out to protect Chris Hurley were the ones asked to carry out the investigation of Cameron’s death
  • A member of Cameron’s family said "if [Chris Hurley] fell on top of Cameron, why did he have a black eye and a bruised jaw?"
  • Coroner found that Cameron had suffered from multiple broken ribs and his liver destroyed, being cleaved almost in two over the top of his spine
  • Hurley had faced complaints previously from the members of the indigenous community on Palm Island, he had shown violence and extreme prejudice toward the people he was supposed to protect.
  • When the Indigenous community heard of Hurley’s actions and the subsequent actions of cooperation by the police force of Palm Island, the people of Palm Island had a riot, furious that a member of their community had been killed by a white police officer with no ramifications against him what so ever
  •  The riot was publicised more than Cameron Doomadgee’s murder had been and the public eye was focused on the “destructive” nature of the Indigenous people of Palm Island, and not the murder committed by Chris Hurley and the entirety of the Palm Islan police force.
  • Hurley was cleared of all charges (even manslaughter and assault charges) despite the heavy load of evidence that was weighed against him, and the entire Queensland police force came out in support of a man who murdered a human being
  • the only eye witness, an Indigenous man, was not asked to speak or give evidence at any point throughout the investigation
  • Chris Hurley had the charges removed from his work record, received time off with pay and was allowed to return to his position of power within a matter of months

Australia is, and always has been extremely racist. These so called “terrorist threats” is just white Australia reinforcing the fact that we are a country being led by white supremacy. The sooner people figure this out the better. 

(the use of this mans name has been approved by his family in order to spread awareness of the ever-growing racism within Australia and its law enforcement)

why I’ve started using MOGAI

trigilis:

(Marginalised Orientations, Gender Alignments, and Intersex)

- a blanket term referring to everyone who isn’t a dyadic cisgender heterosexual and heteroromantic person.

  • it’s shorter, more inclusive and easier to pronounce than LGBTQIAP+
  • not a slur like “queer”
  • doesn’t have a history of including dyadic cishet kinksters, paedophiles, or rapists like GSRM (Gender, Sexual and Romantic Minorities) 
  • doesn’t include dyadic cishet women while excluding binary trans men like MOGII (Marginalised Orientations, Gender Identities, and Intersex) 
  • Allies can’t take the “A”, because “Marginalised Orientations, Gender Allies, and Intersex” wouldn’t make the least bit of sense

Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

WHAT.

THE.

FUCK.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”

DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.

These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.
