10 أشياء حدثت منذ بدء احتجاجات BLM

الدليل على أنّ الفاعليّة تجلب التغيير بسرعة

by

خرج المحتجّون خلال الأسابيع الثلاثة الماضية من كافة أنحاء العالم إلى الشوارع احتجاجاً على جريمة قتل جورج فلويد. منذ 25 مايو خرجت حشود غفيرة في شتى أرجاء الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية الخمسين بالإضافة إلى 13 دولة مختلفة بما فيها فلسطين وسورية.

على الرغم من بعض ردود الفعل العنيفة ووجود العديد من الأشخاص الذي يشككون بالغاية الحقيقية من هذه الاحتجاجات، إلا أنّها مستمرّة منذ 3 أسابيع ولا تزال في ذروتها. لقد احتشد بالأمس 15.000 شخص في مدينة بروكلين لأجل Black trans lives.

اجتذبت برلين حشداً يقارب 20.000 شخص، فيما توافد إلى الشوارع الباريسية في نهاية الأسبوع الماضي آلاف المحتجين في ذكرى وفاة آداما تراوري ذلك الشاب الفرنسي ذو البشرة السوداء الذي قتل أثناء احتجازه لدى الشرطة في عام 2016. أمّا في لندن فقد نظّم المحتجّون المناهضون للعنصرية BLM مظاهرة سلميّة.

على الرغم من أنّ الاحتجاجات قد أدت إلى احتجاز رجال الشرطة الأربعة الذين قتلوا جورج فلويد، إلا أنّ النشطاء مازالوا يكافحون من أجل إلقاء القبض على رجال الشرطة الذين قتلوا برونا تايلور ويطالبون بإلغاء تمويل قوّات الشرطة.

إن كنتم تتطلعون لمعرفة بعض نتائج احتجاجات الأسابيع الثلاثة الماضية، لا تبحثوا بعيداً.

⚠️ Trigger Warning⚠️ The violent, public death of George Floyd has forced a confrontation of the violent colonial histories of nations around the globe. Statues and monuments of former leaders that upheld racist ideals or carried out atrocities are being re-evaluated. In the American South, tributes to Confederate leaders from the Civil War are being removed. In the UK, a bronze of a 17th century slave trader was ceremoniously relocated from a public square to the bottom of a river. In Belgium, a tribute to a King with an extremely bloody past has been defaced, and removed from public display. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ King Leopold II of Belgium held the Congo Free State (today the Democratic Republic of the Congo) under personal rule from 1885 to 1908. The colonial nations of Europe allowed his claim to the country by his promise to improve the lives of the native inhabitants. He did not make good on this promise. An estimated 10 million Congolese are believed to have perished during his terroristic rule—a huge decline in the population. Many deaths were carried out in the name of labor laws over natural rubber, a main export. Failing to meet quotas could be punished by mutilation (severed hands were all too common) or even death. Disease and famine claimed the lives of many more, and the birth rate suffered immensely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leopold was Belgian’s longest serving ruler and as a result, there are still of statuary tributes to him throughout the country. Many have already been defaced. When will the rest be removed? • #blm #blacklivesmatter #history #colonization #colonizer #congo #democraticrepublicofcongo #belgium #belgian #antwerp

**Swipe above to read** One of the most influential figures in fashion media, #StephenGan is the founder and editor-in-chief of @VMagazine and @VMAN, as well as the creative director of @ElleUSA . We spoke to several former employees of V, all of whose names have been changed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When asked for comment on the allegations, Stephen Gan sent the following statement: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I have never once requested for a talent or model's nostrils to be photoshopped to appear smaller and even the notion is absurd. In regards to the Alek Wek allegations, we love and have always supported Alek from the beginning of her career and the only reason I would have asked for her to be shot in Off-White or Yeezy, is because we at V are huge fans of Virgil and Kanye's work. Lastly as a gay man from a minority race,  I would never criticise a shoot for being 'too gay'. It is absolutely ludicrous and if you look at the ground-breaking shoots we have prided ourselves on within V Man and V over the years, the very idea is almost comical." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ V cover photo credit: Inez & Vinoodh • #vman #vmagazine #fashionmagazine #magazine #print #fashion #racism #misogyny #homophobia #cultural appropriation #dietprada

⁣Just a few things some Black Muslims are tired of hearing. Earlier this year, I released the first few episodes of a video series called #myblackmuslimexperience (I have some more videos coming next week inshaAllah). It is all about Black Muslims sharing their experiences unapologetically. They shared the good, bad and ugly. It was met with some backlash, many brothers and sisters sent me messages saying "that was probably a misunderstanding" or "racism doesn't exist in islam" etc. basically trying to gaslight their stories. I was appalled but not really surprised as I've always seen this type of resistance whenever I would tell my own story. I'm happy to see more people open to listening but I do pray that it isn't because of the trendy appeal of blm? Black Lives Matter is NOT a moment. It's a movement. It's not something that just appeared out of thin air 2/3 weeks ago, it has been ongoing.. Allahu A'lam what the shift was but I really pray that it does not die down as it is not something that will go away until we make REAL systemic change. ⠀ ⠀ I think it's also important for people to have these conversations with themselves and their communities. White supremacy transcended borders and has affected the way we see ourselves and each other. The notion of internalization is a real thing. We need to check our own biases and evaluate our own faults. These are just a few things that some Black Muslims are tired of hearing, share in the comments any that I missed! If you ever have questions or want to chat about anything, my messages are open :)⠀ ⠀ Slides + words by me 🙂 @habasooda⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Follow @habasooda for more content like this.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ First photo by @yayacards ⠀ #blackmuslims #antiblackracisminthemuslimcommunity #racisminislam #abeed #blackmuslim #blackmuslimseries #myblackmuslimexperience #solidarity #blm #muslimsforblacklivesmatter #blackandmuslim #muslimandblack #identity #thingsblackmuslimsaretiredofhearing #acab #1312
