For those that does not know: People in São Paulo, Brazil, are protesting against the increasing of public transportation prices and were attacked for no reason by the police. Yesterday, several people were brutally assaulted in São Paulo, when they were protesting pacifically. People were hunt down and were beaten with violence, including reporters, who were only covering the movement. A reporter who was already distant from the manifestation was shot by a policeman (using a rubber bullet), and almost lost her eyesight. Another reporter has less than a 5% chance to recover his, for the same reasons that the other previously mentioned. The policemen of São Paulo also used tear gas bombs outside the validity period, which contained clear instructions that if used so, brought risk to the population. One of these bombs has even been thrown into a car, where a man about 72 years old (who also had nothing to do with the manifestations) tried to get out of the car desperately, and had no help, because the cops attacked protesters who tried to get close to him. Just for the general information: this increase in public transportation were about R$:0,20, that is not much, but around 40% of population that use public transport service in Brazil has to skip a whole meal to pay for the normal prices. With this increase, people would need to private themselves of more stuff. That, my dear friends, is democracy we live in today. It disgusts me to see my country going trough all this. And this manifestation were not the first one. Last year, in my state several students went to the streets for this same cause, and were too aggressively attacked by the police. The mass media picture people that tries to change the country as lazy ass kids, that are just messing around, being stupid or something like that. This stupid kid here standing in the photo has a poster saying: “Sorry for the inconvenience, we are changing the country”
Protestants of São Paulo, my thoughts are on you.

“Sorry for the inconvenience, we are changing the country.”
For those who don’t know Brazil:
We are not only forests, Rio de Janeiro and samba. We are citizens who fight for a country that think is democrat , but it’s not.
This photo was taken during a protest, in São Paulo, against the fare increase public bus, in which the brazilian was humiliated, arrested and wounded physically and psychologically.
Brazil is not the world cup. Brazil is often unfair.
It’s happening in Brazil right now a riot. People are fighting for their rights in a pacific way against the cost of the bus ticket. It’s too expensive to a country that the minimum salary is R$:678,00. The corruption of our government cost us fifty billions reais.
But now, it’s not only about the bus ticket. It’s about everything we’ve been throught with the government. Our human resources president is a homophobic man, who puts his religion above the human rights. We wants the “gay cure” to be actually a thing in here. Politics going to Miami spending OUR money with expensive champagnes and prostitutes. We pay so much taxes for a bad public education, bad public hospital were the pacients lie in the floor because they dont have stretchers.
The public tranportation is a caos and expensive, now is even more expensive!
It stared as a pacific manifest, but the police responded with violence. Bombs, shooting rubber bullets against us who were asking for “NO VIOLENCE”. People were arrested, spanked others are severely injuried because of the rubber bullets.
PLEASE, SPREAD THIS MESSAGE AROUND BECASE WE KNOW THE MEDIA WILL PUT US AS RIOTERS WHO WERE PROTESTING WITH VIOLENCE AND DEGRADATION AND IT’S A LIE. MY COUNTRY AND IT’S PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP, WE ARE FINNALY GETTING OUR VOICE BACK AFTER YEARS OF SUBMISSION. HELP US SPREADING THE WORD.
Muda, que quando a gente muda o mundo muda com a gente
A gente muda o mundo na mudança da mente
E quando a mente muda a gente anda pra frente
E quando a gente manda ninguém manda na gente!
Na mudança de atitude não há mal que não se mude nem doença sem cura
Na mudança de postura a gente fica mais seguro
Na mudança do presente a gente molda o futuro!
Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart
I went to Comicpalooza this weekend and I was full of nervous energy as I was standing in line to ask Sir Patrick Stewart a question at his panel. I first had to thank him for a speech he had given at amnesty international about domestic violence towards women . I had only seen it a few months ago but I was still dealing with my own personal experience with a similar issue, and I didn’t know what to call it. After seeing Patrick talk so personally about it I finally was able to correctly call it abuse, in my case sexual abuse that was going to quickly turn into physical abuse as well. I didn’t feel guilty or disgusting anymore. I finally didn’t feel responsible for the abuse that was put upon me. I was finally able to start my healing process and to put that part of my life behind me.
After thanking him I asked him “Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in you life (that you are willing to share with us)?”. Sir Patrick told us about how he couldn’t protect his mother from abuse in his household growing up and so in her name works with an organization called Refuge for safe houses for women and children to escape from abusive house holds. Sir Patrick Stewart learned only last year that his father had actually been suffering from PTSD after he returned from the military and was never properly treated. In his father’s name he works with an organization called Combat Stress to help those soldiers who are suffering from PTSD.
They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me “My Dear, are you okay?” I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that his mother had done nothing to provoke his father and that even if she had, violence was never, ever a choice a man should make. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked “Do you want a hug?”
Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.” I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.
Sir Patrick Stewart is an absolute roll model for men. He is an amazing man and was so kind and full of heart. I want to let everyone know to please find help if you are in a violent or abusive house hold or relationship. There are organizations and people ready to help. I had countless people after the panel thanking me for sharing the story and asking him those questions. Many said they went through similar things. You are not alone.

Just so beautiful.
And then, at one point, he had to take her to the twin towers. And right then, he knew, it was the last time he’d see her. And he knew that HE was sealing her fate, by taking her there at that moment. Because when THAT happened, then would be the time.
And we still don’t know how she knows his name and when was the “only time I could” … I think everyone thought it would be Trenzalore, but that was after her knowing the name, so it’s not. Don’t think we’ll ever know, either.
Yeah I thought that too…
Random quick weird question: if the Doctor now doesn’t exist, like Clara erased him and everything, does that mean River isn’t in jail anymore? Cause if he never existed how could she have killed him and be sent to jail? Did they ever mention this in The Angels Take Manhattan? I generally want to know now, anyone?
Not sure anyone answered and not sure how to answer, but they did mention that in Angels of Manhattan, I think. I clearly remember, in some episode, River saying she wasn’t in jail anymore because the man she killed never existed in the first place so they had to let her go… Something like that
