I’m posting this bit first as its important, my words will come in the click through.

I’m incredibly saddened over the events that have escalated over the past few days in the United States of America though it doesnt come as a surprise, for as long as I remember relations between the Black community and those who wield power throughout the world have been incredibly strained, I wont pretend I can identify, as a working class, White British CIS male, alot of these issues aren’t something that challenge my day to day life, let alone threaten me. But that doesn’t mean I should sit and ignore it, I have a voice and I have privelege. With that in mind I wont be posting anything on Bar Harukiya for this week, and for as long as I see fit this post will be pinned to the top of the website. I do not stand with the President of the United States, I do not stand with those who see to opress those whose duty it is to protect. Fuck you I wont do what you tell me.
