Activists wave US flags as they ride on a "Stop Trump" battle bus

Donald Trump, who once referred to himself as Mr. Brexit, is getting little love from across the pond. A "Stop Trump" bus paraded pass the Houses of Parliament in London today, a marketing ploy to encourage American expats to vote in the presidential election. Activists were seen waving the U.S. flag, and since they were on an anti-Trump bus, it was probably the first time a Brit felt pride seeing the Stars and Stripes.

If you happen to be a person who doesn't believe in climate change, I would urge you to do a search for "flooding" in one of the major news photo sites. You will see catastrophic images from India, Greece, Russia, North Carolina, Indonesia, Mexico, North Korea, Louisiana, Maui, The Philippines... and that's just from September.

Ai Weiwei's first major retrospective, "Libero," at the Palazzo Strozzi

The artist Ai Weiwei has done a number of things to defy the regime in his native China, leading to arrests, the seizing of his property by police, and jail time. But now the artist is being hailed with his first Italian retrospective, which opens Friday at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence.

Students run for cover as police fire stun grenades and rubber bullets in an attempt to disperse them during a protest

Looking at these two photos, taken at events that happened within the last 24 hours – one, from a student protest in Johannesburg, South Africa, the other shot at last night’s protests in Charlotte, which erupted following Keith Lamont Scott’s fatal shooting by police – it’s hard not to think about what Charles Moore would have thought. Made famous for chronicling the Civil Rights Movement starting in the late 1950s, Moore captured the images of men and women being brutalized with police dogs, billy clubs and firehoses through the early ‘60s, including taking photos of the famous Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965.

That was 51 years ago. Moore died in 2010. I wish I could talk to him about the fact that the same kind of horrifying violence and brave, peaceful resistance that he captured on film so many years ago, is still very much with us today.
