I've been busy chanting but this Boston demonstration is MASSIVE

I got hit in the leg witg a gas can but I'm ok. I was on the front throwing them back

Show thread

almost got run over by a white civillian?? dude deadass tried to kill me

Show thread

getting out; there's prolly still some action but my end is dispersing

Show thread

folks are getting arrested, there's a lot of breaking and entering, and as much as I support that and wanna help people, I don't wanna get captured after flaunting the cops so much before

Show thread

I'm fully out, in a car on my way back to where I parked; seems like the whole mta is down?

Show thread

so to summarize the day:
-started peaceful
-cops escalated cuz they couldn't handle getting shouted at
-we got tear gassed with our hands up
-I threw tear gas canisters back at cops (with gloves)
-I got shot in the thigh with a tear gas canister
-I backed up, tried to keep the intersection behind us clear
-an older white guy hit me with his car and almost ran me over
-I stood in the front for a while as it feeled like things were cooling down
(1/?)

Show thread

-my gas goggles broke
-it turns our the cops were basically biding their time while they tried to encircle us
-we heard concussion grenades and commotion from the direction they were pushing ys
-we noped out and hid in the park
-we evaded various efforts by the cops to catch fleeing protestors
-people started robbing stores (cool) but the cops started really cracking down (not good)
-all the subways were gated
-we felt like trapped rats
-we eventually got a friend with a car to grab ua

don't worry about me. I'm a little hobbled and I smell like tear gas but I'll be fine. worry about the ones who didn't get out. donate to the mass bail fund: massbailfund.org/

-some people throw water bottles at cops and tell them to go home
-cop shoots tear gas at you while your hands are up
-you throw the tear gas back with the gloves you brought, cuz you expected this
-the cop shoots the next tear gas can at your fucking leg, coming inches away from castrating you

that's how protesting cops go. they will never tolerate dissent, and they will hit back harder if you try to defend yourself.

Show thread

also the guy who tried to run me over with his car while I was directing traffic to clear an intersection behind us (in case cops pushed us back to it, which they later did)? his plate was 2nRS11 according to an observer. if anyone wants to do something with that info.

Show thread

he dead-ass tried to kill me. picked my feet up off the ground with his fucking car; easily could have sucked me under. I wasn't the only one in front of him either. absolutely monstrous.

Show thread

I saw some folks chase after him on motorcycles; hope they fucking caught him

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

btw, in case anyone doubted me (or just wanted to see what it looks like to get hit with a 40mm tear gas shell):

hurt like a mother fucker; a few inches to the right and it would have been a whole lot worse...

Show thread

I was not the only person I saw get hit. and I got hit right after throwing one back with my gloves; I think they were aiming at me, and others, in retaliation. fucking pigs.

@jacethechicken sorry about the leg 💜 thank you for reporting back and glad you’re safe

@jacethechicken remember after emotional care we are trash at it, but you need to take care of your mental health

re: my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken that's a pretty nasty, solid hit. could have been worse though... fucking bastards one and all

re: my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@starwall it looks worse in person, not all of the purple comes through the camera. but yeah, deffo could have been worse. and other people got worse for sure.

@jacethechicken Jesus fucking christ

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken I had no idea tear gas canisters could leave such a bruise what are they thinking

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@fluffy they're still 40mm shells, fired out of a grenade launcher; they're "low-velocity" shells, but that type of shell is frequently used by real militaries.

and they meant to hit me. I had just picked one up and thrown it back in self defense. they wanted to hurt protestors.

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@fluffy and it honestly looks worse in person lol; a lot of the purple didn't come through.

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken hope it doesn't put you out of the fight...looks like some serious bruising. I don't think I've ever had a bruise like that. Impressed you are still standing

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken ah fuck this looks bad. you'll probably have trouble putting stress on that muscle for a few days, I'd try to keep that in mind when heading out again. get well <3

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken I'm so sorry, friendo. That shouldn't have been done.

my nasty injury from tonight, underwear 

@jacethechicken fuck, that looks sore ❤️

@jacethechicken Wow, that looks painful. Thank you so much for standing in solidarity and staying strong. Get well soon!
