In their latest efforts, New Era Detroit were doing routine community action to feed the homeless and needy when the police state took offense.
For passing out food on the bus, New Era Detroit people were detained and threatened by the police. Police found it enticing to search people on the bus, and recovered 2 toy guns (with orange tips) that were in the possession of 2 young men, who were riding the bus, minding their own business.
The routine activity to help their community was uncontrollably turned into video evidence: that the thugs of the state (police) don’t take kindly to unity and self sufficiency.
Watch the video below on YouTube, and follow New Era Detroit to keep up with their lessons on how to empower your community.
The next day, the active activists were participating in what they call a cash mob: flooding a local business owned by their people with their cash, to support their people. That’s the essence of counter-economics, how to build wealth as people.
That’s what I call a real solution to wealth disparity and poverty: love, hard work and determination, living life with intent to make things better.
Please share this with as many people as possible.
