Hello friends Big Bazaar sold in 24713 crore rupees and Mukesh Ambani bought https://youtu.be/iRCJ0a3iBYo
JUSTICE FOR JACOB BLAKE MARCH: Firstly, this weak-minded, ruthless, and racist Kenosha, Wisconsin, corrupt cop shot Jacob Blake, an unarmed 29 year old Black Father, seven times in the back, right in front of Blake's three Black sons in the car. Jacob Blake's three Black sons have been deeply traumatized by the witnessing this horrific shooting of their Father. This horrific shooting in the back seven times has paralyzed Jacob Blake from the waist down. Jacob Blake is a community hero who was breaking up a fight. These weak-minded, ruthless, and racist Kenosha, Wisconsin corrupt cops must be arrested, charged, convicted, and imprisoned. The following night corrupt cops in Kenosha, Wisconsin, let a 17 year old White racist vigilante and Trump supporter, Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three people, murdering two of them, walk right by them as their hero holding the riffle of racism. This crystal-clear double standard of racism in America must change now. I am praying night and day continually for Jacob Blake’s recuperation and recovery. The local District Attorney must have the rock solid backbone to immediately bring murder charges against the officer, Rusten Sheskey, who murdered Jacob Blake by shooting him in the back seven times. Black Lives Matter!!! AS GOES NEW YORK SO GOES THE NATION!!! Secondly, New York State Governor Andrew Coumo the corrupt cops who brutally beat Akbar Rogers in Freeport, New York; the corrupt cops who brutally beat Ahmad Tillery in Roosevelt, New York; and the corrupt cops who assassinated Matthew Felix in Queens, New York, must also be arrested, charged, convicted, and imprisoned. As goes New York so goes the nation. If the powers that be turn a blinded eye to racist corrupt cop police brutality in the Big Apple, New York State, and makes no arrests at all. Then we will end up with what have right now, a national revival of racism. Thirdly, America must have the rock solid backbone, and a real revival of social justice, and not the good ole boy racist system of just us. A real revival of social justice, Civil Rights, and Human Rights to arrest corrupt cops throughout the entire landscape of America. Corrupt cops who live only to justify their weak-minded, ruthless, and racist crimes. Governor Coumo it is totally clear that President Donald Trump does not care. Therefore as you took a bold leadership stand as New York State Governor in the current Coronavirus pandemic. You are needed now by our nation to set the social justice, Civil Rights, and Human Rights example by leading the way in the arresting, charging, convicting, and imprisoning in the current racism pandemic all of racist corrupt cops who have clearly brutally beat, and or assassinated Black and Brown people in New York State. As goes New York State so goes the nation. Furthermore, the Freeport New York Village Police officers who brutally beat Akbar Rogers of Freeport, New York, must be immediately arrested, convicted, and imprisoned for their highly abusive violations of Akbar Rogers' Civil Rights and Human Rights. Racist Police brutality beating mobs must not be permitted physically abuse Blacks just because of the color of our Black skin in the Village of Freeport, Nassau County, New York State, or anywhere throughout the landscape of America. When corrupt cops who murder Black people are not arrested it produces corrupt citizens who kill people in the streets, movie theaters, malls, and more. When corrupt cops who murder Black people are not arrested it produces honest cops who rather commit suicide than support the cover up of a racist, classist, and sexist corrupt cop system. All Lives Can Not Matter Until Black Lives Matter!!! Therefore, I call on New York State Governor Andrew Coumo to officially grant New York State Attorney General Letitia Ann James the Governor's approval for the Office of the Attorney General to investigate the brutal racist beating of Akbar Rogers by members of the Freeport Village Police Department. I commend United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for having the rock solid backbone to support the Black Lives Matter protest demand in Nassau County that the New York State Attorney General investigate the corrupt racist Freeport cops. Because Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas failed to prosecute the racist mob of corrupt cops who have physically injured many Freeport residents such as Marty Martinez and so many others. A REVIVAL OF RACISM!!! New York State Governor Andrew Coumo after Akbar Rogers, a Black man from Freeport, New York, was brutally beat by Freeport Village Police officers including the Freeport Mayor's sons. Black Boy Scout Ahmad Tillery of Roosevelt, New York, was brutally beat by Nassau County 1st Precinct Officers. After Akbar Rogers of Freeport, New York, was brutally beat by Freeport Village Police officers. 19-year-old Black man, Matthew Felix, was assassinated, lynched by Nassau County Police officers illegally over the borderline in Queens, New York. Black Lives Matter!!! AS GOES NEW YORK SO GOES THE NATION!!! Consequently, New York State Governor Andrew Coumo after Akbar Rogers, a Black man from Freeport, New York, was brutally beat by Freeport Village Police officers. George Floyd was lynched in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Breonna Taylor was lynched in Louisville Kentucky; Ahmaud Albery was lynched in Brunswick, Georgia; Rayshard Brooks was lynched in Atlanta, Georgia; and Jacob Blake was lynched in Kenosha, Wisconsin. All Lives Can Not Matter Until Black Lives Matter!!! AS GOES NEW YORK SO GOES THE NATION!!! Therefore, New York State Governor Andrew Coumo the Freeport Village Police officers who brutally beat Akbar Rogers, the Nassau County corropt cops who brutally beat Ahmad Tillery, and assassinated Matthew Felix in Queens, New York, must held totally responsible for sparking a deadly revival of racism that is literally spreading like wild fire and destroying the soul of the nation. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Alberry, Rayshard Brookes, and Jacob Blake are all victims of this revival of racism fire that was lit right here in New York. These corrupt Freeport, New York, and Nassau County cops operate in the spirit of the Klu Klux Klan that once was a major stronghold in Freeport, New York. Black Lives Matter!!! Pastor Arthur L.

``` The law of nature, which makes its respect for its presence in every country today, we will write the story of the Nile, which nature created to cross between a group of Dalutans, every country that benefits from this river for its lifeBut if I make any country with a handicap in the Nile River it will cause harm to another country that will be several of its use in the river and this is what we see from the state of Ethiopia towards the state of Egypt intransigence in building a dam but rather it is a barrier and obstruction of the river NileIn a story, rather, it is how rights impose their strengths in these beneficial properties for all. An illustrative example is a building in which ten families reside. Each family has a role that lives in its residence inside as it pleases. Fourth, I cut the ladder or set it up on the door, to prevent it from going up and down after which it will be in harmThis story, but I would like to clarify an important thing. Did Egypt prevent Ethiopia from its economy in its homeland or Egypt interfered with the right of the Ethiopian people in a homeland?Look at Egypt that its president builds projects. It undertakes national projects to serve the Egyptian people. Are those who evaluate economic projects thinking of war or are on the path to war?Look at those pictures in which we build and rebuild the land. We want to farm in the desert in our homeland and evaluate electricity projects ``` 📷 ``` ``` 📷 ``` ``` 📷 ``` ``` 📷 ``` ``` 📷 ``` ``` 📷
