8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

Cilantro doesn’t even take all that long — “a few months” may be an exaggeration.

Health, Food,

Today marks the anniversary of the assassination of General Aung San, a man who fought for the independence of his country from the British, who wanted equal representation and ownership of indigenous ethnic groups in the land instead of the Bamar supremacist regime the British left power to that assassinated him. May he rest in peace.

Staten Island man dies after NYPD cop puts him in chokehold — SEE THE VIDEO

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.

Check out the leaflet for our launch event on the 19th of July 2014 at Soas (School Of Oriental And African Studies). 
We will be looking at our aims and action plan, and will have food and an open mic.
Everyone is Welcome!

Also as a side note, blackcommunist brought this to my attention noting it as “revolutionary intersectional organisation, which means we believe in the intersection of dismantling racism, sexism, Ableism and classism (we have Feminist’s, Communists, Pan Africans and Anarchists involved in our group).” Just to be clear, does this also include dismantling homophobia and transphobia/ provide safe spaces for queer, especially trans/NB people?
(Also sent me the following links for anyone who’s interested: http://rmovement.tumblr.com / Ourmovement@outlook.com /https://www.facebook.com/events/612106868905406/ / @ou_Rmovement)



Yes it does also mean dismantling and challenging, homophobia, transphobia and creating spaces that are inclusive for those who are LGBT! We want to create an inclusive movement that challenges all forms of discrimination.
