Abby Zimet

Last night's two-handed beating of protesters with a baton by a NYPD white-shirt - ie: supervisor - was violent enough that YouTube now warns the video "may contain inappropriate content." Lest we forget, this was the police. The drama escalates when protesters react by determinedly, collectively yelling "Remain calm!" and "This is a peaceful protest!" The Guardian has more, including Jon Stewart on who's "patriotic" and who isn't.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
