"The Page Law, which particularly targeted working-class Chinese immigrant women, required officials to differentiate “real” wives from women bound for sex work and to deny entry to the latter. It was an impossible task. The idea that such a differentiation could be made was, as Foucault puts it, a “ruse” that both marked and facilitated particular arrangements of power. But these arrangements were sanctioned because Chinese prostitutes had become popularly identified with multiple dangers to white lives, institutions, and nation. As a result, officials developed techniques for trying to differentiate “real” wives from prostitutes through the elicitation of biographical details, photography, and the creation of case files. Although these techniques never enabled officials to reliably differentiate among women, they had several important effects. For one, the techniques concretely introduced concerns about sexuality into U.S. immigration control processes. They compelled the production of discourses about sexuality and gave rise to varied circuits for exchanging and evaluating these discourses. The circuits linked together bureaucrats, experts, politicians, and the public in new ways, around preoccupations with sexuality, immigration, and nation. The techniques also enabled officials to constitute Chinese women as subjectified and disciplined in racial, gendered, class, and sexual terms. Over time, the policing of immigrants around sexuality, which the Page Law inaugurated, became extended to all newcomers. It remains a central feature of immigration control today."

I’d highly recommend this book if you ever want to read a comprehensive Foucauldian takedown of US immigration policy

"There were twelve programs under COINTELPRO covering different sets of organizations, including the Puerto Rican Independence Movement, the New Left, the American Indian Movement, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), and almost needless to say, the Communist Party, which had been an FBI target for decades. The FBI infiltrated Liberation News Service (LNS), a New Left version of the Associated Press, using disinformation to make LNS seem an FBI front, and set up a phony newspaper to hire young radicals in order to spy on them. Following a lawsuit by the SWP, it was revealed that an organization with 2,500 members had been infiltrated by 1,600 informers—thus actually strengthening the group for a time, one could reasonably suppose. At one point, according to David Cunningham’s 2004 book There’s Something Happening Here: The New Left, The Klan, and FBI Counterintelligence, about 6 percent of Klan members were informers, including some of the top leaders."

How We Found Out About COINTELPRO

1,600 infiltrators in an organisation of 2,500 people…what

I bet half of them were informing on one another

the hong kong shit is actually really complicated and nuanced and you cant expect terms like “pro-democracy”, “liberalism”, “communist” to mean the same the same things in HK that they do else where (note that “doesnt mean the same” shouldnt be taken as  ”means the opposite”)

for example you have labor unions and pro-business groups standing on both sides of the protests right now. 

I feel like I was just saying this about Thailand…

It’s always difficult for tumblr when an accurate assessment of the situation calls for more work than just looking at a photo and reacting to the symbolism it contains.

Liverpool Dockworkers Salute Oakland Community Picket and ILWU Local 10. | Occupy Oakland

The Liverpool Dockworkers both past and present salute the actions of Local 10 and the Oakland Community Picket, taken against the Israeli government controlled Zim Line vessels. Furthermore their magnificent actions strike a blow against the Israel apartheid regime for their continued massacre and destruction of Gaza. For far too long people in power have turned a blind eye to the Israeli slaughter of innocent Palestinian men, women and children, now we are seeing the labour and trade union movement in Oakland fighting back, and their actions must be supported by port and dockworkers the world over.

If we can be of any immediate help in terms of publicity or campaigning please let me know.

In Solidarity,

TERRY TEAGUE. (DOCKS, WATERWAYS & FERRIES OFFICER.)

  ‘I have three young boys who I barely spend time with anymore. Just writing that sentence upset me deeply.’ – primary teacher, Bury

·         ‘I am fed up of seeing my colleagues near to breaking point, and there isn’t a week goes by where I don’t see someone crying. This has to stop.’ – primary teacher, Trafford

‘I love teaching, but hate the system I teach in. I’m a good and well respected teacher, but I can’t keep living like this. The moment I find the right opportunity, I will leave this uncaring, fear driven, life-drain that masquerades as a “profession”.’ – secondary teacher, Suffolk

Teaching in the UK, particularly in England and Wales, is in a deep and profound crisis
