"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

This man needs to be arrested! Because he will do it again! For sure!
And because he needs to be punished!
I’m in France but I hope my reblog will help.

David Hewlett and David Nykl @ Armageddon Expo Melbourne 2014

David Hewlett is always a joy to listen to.  He’s so incredibly verbose and friendly and animated.  David Nykl was also interesting to listen to.  It was interesting to learn more about his experiences with filming in Canada and his experience with big movies and their secrecy.  The two have a wonderful rapport.

I also got to see David Hewlett’s new film Debug.  Jason Momoa plays a creepy computer who has a different way of doing things than most other computers.  Some imaginative endings in the film.  Started a bit slow, but once it got going, it was good to watch.  Some squicky bits, some gross bits, and some bits that didn’t quite go the way I expected.
