Hey America, you can’t fool us. It was the people who dedicated themselves against your corporate interests that got us 8 hour work days and 5 day work weeks. It wasn’t you. In fact, your “labor day” is a scam to convince us to settle where we are. Over the years since its development our work days and hours have increased and our unions have been broken. America, your interest was never in giving us anything. It was in silencing us.
talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society."

Hey there y’all,
We got a message from this really rad kid named Ian asking for a moon bandits shirt. We made him one. We also made two more. Any other kids out there want a shirt? Oh and we made new adult shirts too. They’re brown this time.
we feel driven to do as much as we can to support the community uprising in ferguson, missouri. starting today, money from orders that we receive for this shirt will be donated to a secure bail fund for those arrested in ferguson.
the shirt depicts two black panther party members, standing in front of a poster that reads ‘hot town, pigs in the streets. but the streets belong to the people, dig it?’
the link to this shirt can be found here:
if you’re unable to buy a shirt, we would appreciate you re-posting this as much as possible.
