    Black Lives Matter isn't just a saying, it's a movement. But it's also part of a larger umbrella of organizations that have come together as part of the Movement for Black Lives. That network gained national prominence by protesting against police brutality, unchecked power by local prosecutors, the erasure of black people's interests from public policy agendas and more.

    In August, representatives from the movement finally stated, in no uncertain terms, what they stood for. The details are outlined in a 22-page policy platform available online. Here's what you need to know about it.

    1. It is focused on, but not exclusive to, black people.
    There's a saying that's become popular in the movement: "When black people get free, everyone gets free." The Movement for Black Lives' policy platform is a prime example of what that reality could look like.

    The platform is focused on the lived experiences of black people in the United States and their efforts to combat poverty, incarceration, inadequate schooling, unemployment and inferior health care. But it also speaks out against the privatization of natural resources.

    "We seek democratic control over how resources are preserved, used and distributed and do so while honoring and respecting the rights of our Indigenous family," the platform says, a statement that's especially resonant as the fight over the Dakota Access Pipeline rages on.

    The platform also takes a strong stance in support of Palestinian liberation, one that earned them condemnation from some Jewish American groups in the United States.

    Here I was, just reading along not thinking anything particular until I came along on EMMA GREEN's hit and run statement regarding some support for Palestinian liberation. Liberation for what, from what?! Liberation to massacre through out the Jewish state of Israel? Israel, the Jewish people have spent generations of whole nations driving them to and fro, always with the agenda of Genocide killing them out in merciless ways down to the infant.

    The only way to preserve this people was to give them their ancient ancestral land in the Middle East in 1948. Who wants to be liberated from whom, as the Palestinians are lobbing missiles, shooting the guards that are put at the borders to prevent further genocide attempts from Palestinians into Jerusalem. And do you know what was the picture above Emma's statements? A picture of Dr. Martin Luther King. Yes, because in these types of people their effort is to deceive you. They use emblems of peace for the convincing, while licking their bloody pointy teeth.

    Speaking of these latter-days: Isa. 60: 12 is speaking of the State of Israel in it's final destination. It is already situated in it's central location, but it still has a little prophecy left wherein, their streets will be trodden through with armies. We can see how that is true because Israel is butted up against all it's local enemies on all it's borders. Then there are those who are against their Democratic liberties outside their region. Therefore Israel does not have open borders. So someone will fight their way in.

    God has said, speaking of the Jewish people, "In my wrath I smote thee," (with unfortunate circumstances) "but in my favor I have had mercy upon thee (for what is to come)… "

    "For the nation or kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish: yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted."
