It’s been a while since I signed into this blog in an attempt to maintain web 2.0 user generated content for this blog and my other blagh whenever blagheers block possible, And during what seems like an end of the world panicdemic or at least an end of the world as we know it panicdemic  going on at the moment, I thought to post a few photos and videos seen in my attempt to vend black lives matter necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each and Black Lives Matter tote bags somewhere in between Union Square Park and Washington Square Park in the New York City area the past few months or so.

 
And it was seen while vending Black Lives Matter jewelry at Union Square Park during the Union Square Greenmarket, or Union square Farmers Market, Underground Horns were busking near that Union Square subway entrance on this day.
 
And then it was seen again that Underground Horns were busking again at Union Square Park during that Union Square Farmers Market near that Gandhi statue. and there was also an anti vaccine rally there on this day.
 
And there was a World Wide Rally For Freedom, World Wide Demonstration & Stop Asian Hate March on one of these attempt to vend in the park days also. And that World wide rally for freedom- March 20 2021 event invite read something like:
 
World Wide Rally For Freedom

World Wide Demonstration March 20, 2021 We stand together as one big family on March 20, 2021 ❤️ For freedom & human rights ❗️ #wewillALLbethere T.me/worldwidedemonstration #worldwidedemonstration #freiebuergerkassel #wwd #wewillALLbethere #wirwerdenALLEdasein“.

 
And according to their Facebook page, there is another World Wide Demonstration 2.0 May 15th, with text that reads like:
 
World Wide Demonstration 2.0
We will do it again!
Side by side – for Freedom & Human rights!
You will find all the details of the protests soon on our Website, on Telegram, Instagram or Facebook!
 
And lo and behold, I came across underground horns busking in that park yet again, and this time it was at Washington Square Park. And so I took A walk around Washington Square Park with Underground Horns brass band on this day. 
And there was also a Justice For Jamarion Robinson memorial and rally on this day at Washington Square Park and there was also a Times Square Takeover to stop asian hate in Times Square this past weekend , which I guess brings me to this current date of today in the photos and videos that find themselves posted above.
 
underground horns is a 6 piece brass band playing afro funk bhangra new orleans latin grooves and beyond. Bring your dancing shoes if you happen to run across them. #blacklivesmatter

Usually I try to post a blissful and happy looking photo and that end of the year Auld Land Syne song when it comes to commemorating the end of a year and a new year blog post, but this year of 2020 hasn’t been a usual normal year, with the hashtag #DeathTo2020 trending on Twitter as the worst year ever, as we are living in crazy and historical times as in the age of the coronavirus , between masks and anti masks, hoaxers and anti hoaxers, vaccines and anti vaccines, lock downs and anti lock downs, travel bans, toilet paper running out, hand sanitizers, 6 feet social distancing, quarantines, shut downs, cancellations, social media censorship, forehead thermometers, social distancing enforcements, Karens and other social control torture devices normalizing tyranny, the logic of restrictions, restrictions and more restrictions and a bunch of other conspiracy theories, it just seems as if we are living in welcome to corona life, the end of the world or Satans kingdom, the book of Revelations and the apocalypse, civil war, 12.21.2012, 12.21.2020, or a science fiction movie here on planet earth these days and times.

And so I can only describe this year in other people’s words, photos and meme’s when words pass me by, as these following posts below appear when one searches the words “the long game” on twitter, a term that I came across in internetland this past week, having something to do with basically China taking over the world, or at least America, in the name of a virus that is made in Chinese Communist Party China. Biowarfare maybe. Or maybe this is just another virus and plague that happens every 100 years. Or maybe the Mayan calendar ended in 2020 and not 2012, or maybe it was that Saturn – Pluto conjuncton that happened last year, and a bunch of other theories for current events again.

“My fear is that we are now heading towards a situation where no Western government has the courage to stand up to and expose the despicable Chinese regime.’

And this

END THE EVIL CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY flyer that someone handed to me in Union Square Park one day. 

Or this

AwakenWithJP My Apology To Facebook video, addressing the issue of social media censorship.

And “the long game and ccp, Chinese Communist Party” search on Twitter:

“Western governments are already in hock to the CCP, who have been playing the long game. Unrestricted Warfare. Clever bastards.”

WAKE UP AMERICA! The #CCP has a long game to “Strangle you with your own systems” and they play hardball. We must take down the #CCP

Yes China is playing the long game. They have invested so much into Africa that when those countries are unable to pay back the exorbitant loans they’ve been given then the CCP will be able to assume control of what they’ve built. Just you watch. China cannot be trusted!”

Get ready for a lot more of this as the CCP gains worldwide presence. This is all part of their long game of dominance, replacing the US as the defacto world superpower.”

The Chinese Communist Party‘s only difference from Nazi Germany is their willingness to play the long game. Their genocidal and expansion plans stretch decades-long, making it easier for people to pretend they’re not trading convenient, cheap goods for human lives and suffering.”

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is like a virus, infecting governments & related agencies & businesses all over the world. No less than total world domination is their long game.”

No – they will not. The Chinese Communist Party will lie, cheat and steal forever because they are playing a long game, and they intend to win at all costs. Our destruction is their main goal.”

Chinese Communist Party is seizing what its senior officials are calling the “opportunity” of the pandemic to realize the party’s long-game objective of fully eclipsing North America and Europe in the global order.”

War has been waged. We are too used to real war with tanks, planes, guns to notice – Cyber, Chemical-Virus, sneaky and hidden. They own our politicians, schools, newspapers, MSM, SM, etc. Playing the long game.”

So China can buy up many businesses that are now struggling due to the spread of ITS KILLER VIRUS COVID 19 and STRAINS, one has to think, as China is Known to play the long game , has this been the plan all along”

This is not about the virus but about the money. In fact hundreds of billions of $$$ to Big Pharma & millions of $$$ for those who have made investments in vaccine companies & development. There is also “the long game” plan & narrative about smth else:”

Asia plays the long game on Covid vaccine rollout Having reined in virus with social controls, many countries wait for west to act as jab guinea pig”

Who is able to make war with the beast. And this blog post is not to even mention those Black Lives Matter protests that have been going on. A whole another topic. In memory of that Gregorian calendar year 2020.

The Union Square Holiday Market isn’t open in New York City this year. And this blog post isn’t really about anything other than that the Union Square Holiday Market is cancelled this year, I guess because of these crazy and historical times we are living in. And Bryant Park Holiday Market is open this year, though Columbus Circle Holiday Market is cancelled, yet the Union Square Greenmarket, Farmers Market is open on this day as I attempt to display those Black Lives Matter banners and vend those Black Lives Matter, S#!t Just Got Real, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, No Police State, Yoga, Brooklyn, Union Square Park and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each at Union Square Park this past weekend.  And what the logic of these panicdemic restrictions are, I am not exactly sure, as one of those photos posted above has a sign in it that says “Stay home, stop the spread”, right next to a sign that says “Come out to the market”  @grownyc. And these photos and videos that find themselves posted above are what a canceled Union Square Holiday Market looks like, or at least part of what a cancelled Union Square Holiday Market looks like on a Union Square Farmers Market day.  Have a great New York City holiday day and more, if possible, during these crazy and historical times we are living in

Underground Horns After A Halloween In Tompkins Square Park!

Underground Horns were playing at Tompkins Square Park this past Halloween weekend. Well, not exactly, as they were busking across the street at St Marks Place.

And it was earlier that day that I had said to myself that I had take photos with that camera at that event burnout on that day that I attempted to vend those Black Lives Matter necklaces, magnets, key chains & pins and Black Lives Matter hats at Halloween in Tompkins Square Park! And instead of taking a bunch of photos with that camera that I did not take to that event, instead, it became take a bunch of random photos with that cell phone that I took to this event. And after that Halloween in Tompkins Square Park! ended, and Seth’s slideshow began, it became a Halloween night that I ran into Underground Horns who were playing on St Mark’s Place, only to read on Facebook later that there was also a dance bus parked on Avenue A, Hungry March Band played, and there was a dance party and bike parade later that Halloween night in Tompkins Square Park. 

And Shows in Tompkins Square Park Facebook event invite reads like:

With the exception of a few brave creative souls who have set up independently, we’ve all been robbed of shows in the park this year. So, on Halloween, we are putting on the biggest one of them all, as our final show for 2020.

In addition to the following performers, we will have political speakers, info tables, publications and arts + crafts created by community members:

> PINC LOUDS
> B.B. YTK
> M. LAMAR
> EDDIE BAKER
> RUCKUS INTERRUPTUS
> THE CARVELS NYC
> SOUL CAKE
> WICKED EXORCIST RITUAL
> THE VOLUPTUOUS HORROR OF KAREN BLACK

Following the show, WW3 ILLUSTRATED co-founder and artist Seth Tobocman will present slides of his anti-Trump comics, with the help of musicians Eric Blitz and John Wagner. Michelle Shocked will perform her blues lament, Graffiti Limbo, honoring the life of Michael Stewart, a young artist who died in police custody in 1983. There were no charges for the murder. R. Sikoryak will read and show images of The Bill of Rights and selected Amendments, from his new graphic novel, Constitution Illustrated.

The fun begins at 1:00pm SHARP!

[Stay tuned here for more details]

If only every day were Halloween then we would be free to be who we want to be.  And as I type this blagh post a few days later after Halloween has passed,  New York City is boarded up again and Luxury retailers are ‘planning for the worst’ on Election Day in anticipation of riots and looting — no matter the result. Have a great Blogger day, if possible, during these crazy and historical times we are living in. #blacklivesmatter

Mass March to Defund NYPD, Tax the Rich & Stop the Layoffs!

Mass March to Defund NYPD, Tax the Rich & Stop the Layoffs! Those are the words that I saw for the title of that Facebook event invite when I looked to see why there seemed to be like ten different protests going on at once at Washington Square Park this past weekend, and that’s not including the Women’s March that was there this past weekend also as I attempted to vend those Black Lives Matter, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, No Police State, Yoga, Tompkins Square Park, Union Square Park, Washington Square Park, Brooklyn and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each at Washington Square Park this past weekend. Batala was drumming there and The People’s Bodega had some really good food there also.

And the Facebook event invite for the Mass March to Defund NYPD, Tax the Rich & Stop the Layoffs! read like:

RSVP HERE: https://actionnetwork.org/events/mass-march-to-defund-the-nypd-tax-the-rich-and-stop-the-layoffs

At the end of June the NYC City Council passed a budget which Mayor DeBlasio and Speaker Corey Johnson claimed Defunded the NYPD in response to the demand raised by protestors and those encamped at City Hall. This claim was a blatant lie as not a single NYPD officer faces a job loss. To add insult to injury, the budget leaves 22,000 city workers at risk of losing their jobs in the midst of crises of unemployment, economic decline and COVID-19. Thus far, the state legislature and Governor Cuomo have refused to pass legislation to Tax the Rich & Wall Street to fill the budget gap. Meanwhile President Trump threatens to withhold funds from NYC and has designated us an “Anarchist Jurisdiction.” In the spirit of resistance which drove this summer’s protests towards justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others murdered by the police, a coalition of the city’s labor and community activists invite the people, and all other social justice organizations to join us in turn in out as many NYers as possible. See you on the streets!

Link to sign-up for updates to come!

Flyer credit: @whenthisallblowsover

And there were like 32 hosts for this event invite, including, NYC Covid Coalition, Black Trans Nation, Revolting Lesbians, Crown Heights Tenant Union, PRESS NYC Parents for Responsive Equitable Safe Schools, Moms United for Black Lives NYC, Black Lives Matter Brooklyn, Met Council on Housing, NYC for Abortion Rights, Teachers Unite, Queens DSA, NYC DSA Labor Branch, Bronx, Uppen Manhattan DSA, Red Bloom: A Communist Collective, Freedom Socialists Party – NYC, Labor for Palestine, North Brooklyn DSA, Sunrise NYC, People’s Strike: Fighting for our Lives, Forging Our Future, MORE UFT, Crown Heights Service Industry Workers, North Bronx Racial Justice, Central Brooklyn DSA, Parents Supporting Parents NY INC, NYC Democratic Socialists of America, Socialist Alternative NYC, DC 37 Progressives, Rank and File Action, NYC Fight for Our Lives Coalition, DSA AfroSocialists and Socialists of Color Caucus, Local 100 Fightback and NYC DSA Racial Justice Working Group.

And that banner that I think it was Rise and Resist held up in front of the Washington Square Park arch that said “DEMOCRACY DIES IN A POLICE STATE” was really cool. And it seems to have been a weekend of demonstrations and protests.

Black Lives Matter. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.  Have a great New York City protest day and more, if possible, during these crazy and historical times we are living in.

And I have been to Kansas City before throughout my travels here on planet earth.  And this time it was for a funeral that I visited that 8-Square-Mile “Murder Factory” zip code of 64130 that I saw the People’s City at Occupy City Hall Kansas City from the bus from the airport that I find myself blogging about.  And in the midst of a panicdemic and going to that funeral and listening to His Eye Is On The Sparrow and Stairway to Heaven at the service, it was also an attempt to vend those Black Lives Matter necklaces, magnets, key chains & pins and display those your thoughts on black lives matter banners at J.C. Nichols Fountain .  There has been protests at the Country Club Plaza to rename Kansas City’s J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain. J.C. Nichols use of “restrictive covenants”—barring African-Americans from buying or renting homes in his subdivisions are to blame for the stark segregation and racial divides that still exist throughout the metro.  

And everyone was at the Kansas City Chiefs game, a drum circle was going on,  a barbecue was later and a Blue Lives Matter rally was on the way that day at Occupy City Hall Kansas City.  The great reset, new world order temperature checks required for entry. And the flyer that I picked up from The People’s City reception table read:

“KC: The city of killer cops

The people demand justice

Why we’re occupying city hall

On September 30th, Deja Stallings, at nine months pregnant, was assaulted by KCPD, the video that surfaced is one in a long line of brutal police attacks on black and brown people in Kansas City

We are occupying because we have had enough. Deja’s case is not an isolated event; black women like Deja are some of the most marginalized and endangered people in our society and shouldn’t have to live in fear of being attacked by the police.

We know that abolition is the path to transformative justice. We fight to live in a world where black lives are truly affirmed, protected and liberated.

The Demands

1. Fire Chief Rick Smith and officer Newton who brutalized Deja.

2, Fire all officers who have killed black victims in Kansas City

3. Divest 50% from KCPD’s $273 million budget

4. Reinvest the KCPD budget into resources that support the black community including education, healthcare and housing.

How Can You Help?

– Occupying with us outside of city hall

– Bring the occupiers supplies such as food, water & blankets

– Donate to local groups like Black Rainbow and the KC Community Bail Fund

– Email BOPC@kcpd.org & demand they vote to terminate Rick Smith

– SPREAD THE WORD

For more information….

Black Rainbow @Blackrainbw

And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State. Black Lives Matter. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.

And in the midst of all of those Black Lives Matter protests going on, and that scary virus that came from out of nowhere earlier this year to where it now seems like that mayan calendar date wants to read 12.21.2021 instead of 12.21.2012 or something, there was another one of those The Shadow Tompkins Square Park concerts that took place at Tompkins Square Park this past weekend, after that scary virus that came from out of nowhere appeared. And it was another concert that I found myself attempting to vend that Black Lives Matter jewelry at and displaying those your thoughts on black lives matter banners at, along with other arts and crafts vendors at this event. And Chris Flash’s The Shadow Presents: Autumn in Tompkins Square Park Facebook event invite read as follows:

Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM

It’s that lovely time of year when neighbors get together to celebrate the cultural vitality of their community in our beloved Tompkins Square Park.

in addition to speakers, information tables with local crafts, we will have the following musical talents:

 > The Acute — 2:00> Evil Kim Evil — 2:30
> Acorn Slim (with Dead Dean) — 3:00
> Jennifer Blowdryer Soul Experience (with Robert Aaron + Nikki Fuse) — 3:30
> SEWAGE (with Spike Polite) — 4:00
> Skitzopolis — 4:30
> Soul Cake — 5:00
> Rebelmatic (with surprise guest CV) — 5:30
> The Love Pirates — 6:00
> Grace The Enemy — 6:30
> Ruckus Interruptus — 7:00

AND: Seth Tobocman (WW# Illustrated) will do a slide show with Eric Blitz and John Wagner.

Brought to you by: The SHADOW, John Gabriel, Eddie Mack, the undying spirit of Uncle Don Yippie and….THOSE F*CKING ANARCHISTS!! 

And Chilis on Wheels were serving some really good vegan food as they seem to do on Saturday’s in this park and extinction rebellion youth had an XR Youth NYC Guerrilla Flea Market on this day also. Climate change is real. And after the Parks Department showed up to shut down that concert a few minutes early, or on the dot, or near the very end, I guess, as in that blurry photo that finds itself posted above,  Seth’s slideshow started, in the dark, in what seemed like a few hours after the concert had ended. And it was an Occupy Wall Street mic check kind of a slide show without a mic. And if my ears heard correctly, he introduced Michelle Shocked who played a few songs into the night, as in that other blurry and dark photo that finds itself posted above.  And what else is there that can I say about this concert that has not already been said in all of the photos that have already been posted in social media land, except to say that between the bands, the merchandise tables, the vendors, the dancing, the music, music  and more music, it seemed to be a great day for another outdoor show and concert in the park. Have a great Tompkins Square Park concert day and more.

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. And in the midst of that scary virus that came from out of nowhere, and other headline news of the day, there was a  Tompkins Square Arts + Book Fair! at Tompkins Square Park this past weekend.  I know because that Facebook event invite that reads like as follows says so:

Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM

The first annual TOMPKINS SQUARE Arts + Crafts and Book Fair is ON!

Come and get works of art, hand made crafts, books, records, videos, and more, all offered by members of your community on the Lower East Side.

There will also be book readings, musicians and speakers.

At dusk, we will be showing the amazing film called LOOSE CHANGE.

LOOSE CHANGE is an in-depth documentary created by students who originally sought to make a documentary that supported the official government version of the incredible events of September 11, 2001. However, as their project progressed, it became clear to them that the official story was NOT credible and that the TRUTH is a whole lot worse than the narrative of foreign terrorists hijacking commercial jets in the US and then crashing them.

LOOSE CHANGE, created on the smallest imaginable budget by students, is superior to anything churned out by state media that backs the govt’s LIES about “9-11”.

Come see LOOSE CHANGE in our beloved Tompkins Square Park and decide for yourself.

[Those interested in participating in selling, trading or giving stuff away (there are NO fees!) can either email us at: shadowpress@rocketmail.com or just come on down.]

And it was also another attempt for me to vend those DecorForU black lives matter, s#!t just got real, not my president, no police state, occupy wall street, yoga, squat, the shadow,  museum of reclaimed urban space , tompkins square park, brooklyn & I love new york necklaces, magnets, key chains & pins for $2 each again. And it was also another one of those Saturdays where Pinc Louds was playing there again. And Pinc Louds gets everyone to dance, dance and more dancing.  And Pinc Louds shared the stage with other artists and performers from the arts and book fair on this day.  And there were other vendors, and food carts, and cheap clothes for sale on this day, something similar to one of those park yard sale bazaars maybe. And The Shadow, who sponsored this event, had their The Shadow Newspaper and other Shadow merchandise for sale on their merchandise table. And as the day wore on and dusk appeared, and Pinc Louds Christmas lights went on into the night as they played, Chris Flash‘s 9/11 film appeared for film night, as some of those photos posted above tell a story.  And Chris Flash’s Shows in Tompkins Square Park are having another concert September 26th—-COME ON DOWN!!! Bring your dancing shoes I guess. #blacklivesmatter

extinction rebellion had a September Rebellion Kick Off! and a September Rebellion: Amazonia or Bolsonaro? Which Side are You on? event at Central Park this past Labor Day weekend. I know because their facebook page says so.  And it was another attempt to vend that Black Lives Matter jewelry near their event and to vend those DecorForU Black Lives Matter, S#!t Just Got Real, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, No Police State, Yoga, Brooklyn and I love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each near their 9/7 Rebel Fest after they passed through Bethesda Fountain.  And apparently  climate change protesters scaled that Columbus Circle globe and hung a banner that read CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW!, all to the soundtrack of jazz street performers playing in front of the globe

 extinction rebellion NYC is a global climate justice movement using nonviolent direct action to pressure governments to address the climate and ecological emergency. 

SAVE THE DATES!

9/13  Extinction Rebellion Action @ Battery Park

“Join XR NYC THIS SEPTEMBER!  EXTINCTION REBELLION is a global nonviolent movement working to compel the world’s government to address the climate & ecological emergency.”
Those are part of the words on a SEPTEMBER 9/7 REBELLION flyer that I received this past weekend, when I attempted to vend those DecorForU Black Lives Matter, S#!t Just Got Real, Not My President, Occupy Wall Street, Yoga, No Police State, Museum of Reclaimed Urban SpaceWashington Square Park, Brooklyn and I Love New York necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each next to extinction rebellion‘s extinction rebellion NYC Rebel Fest Gathering event at Washington Square Park this past weekend.  And the description of their event invite reads like as follows:

REBEL FEST 
Sunday, August 30, 2020 1:00 PM 5:00 PM
Washington Square Park 5th Ave & Washington Square N
New York, NY, 10012 United States  

WE WANT TO LIVE… IN A MORE BEAUTIFUL WORLD. 

You are invited to Rebel Fest! Together, we will reclaim our power by openly and joyfully defying the current systems of oppression and creating the more beautiful world we want. 
Join us as we gather in community, have fun, make art, share food, and inspire each other!

Schedule of events: 1pm – Gather in the park near the fountain. Enjoy snacks, mingle, and make art 

2pm – Kickoff to the Rebellion. Get to know your fellow Rebels and hear more about the exciting new campaign demanding REAL democracy here in NYC! 

Please bring some light snack food to share, if you’d like and are able! 

Please wear a mask and observe proper physical distancing. We will have hand sanitizer and some PPE to share.


And extinction rebellion NYC seems to have extinction rebellion NYC events on what seems like a daily basis in the New York City area to save the environment and save the world.

You can also join their XR community for weekly virtual, playful, regenerative dance parties as well. Everyone’s welcome!

And I am not exactly sure what extinction rebellion is, though I have seen those extinction rebellion flyers around on light poles in the streets of New York City the past year or so, and I could only figure out that the extinction rebellion symbol had something to do with climate change and saving humanity from extinction, from disappearing off the face of the planet, though I think it is Albert Einstein who once said that if the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would have only four years left to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.

And there is also a How Green Is My City Exhibition Tour at Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS, that radical history museum in New York City’s Lower East Side, September 25th 6pm.
This exhibition is led by the director of Green Maps. The exhibition is brought to you through a special partnership between the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) and the Green Map System, and also an Opening with Live Virtual Tour: How Green Is My City? September 6th.  In the basement level of MoRUS, explore a special temporary exhibit featuring photos, art, and barricades from the recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations. “Plywood Windows of SoHo: Black Lives Matter” is curated by James Hong with photographs by Hong and George Hirose. The partial Marsha P. Johnson mural is done by street artist Captain Eyeliner (instagram: @captain_eyeliner).

And some of those photos from this extinction rebellion REBEL FEST day at Washington Square Park, find themselves posted in those photos and videos above. Join the September 9/7 Rebellion. To all the good samaritans in New York City and beyond. Thank You. #climatechangeisreal #blacklivesmatter
