Join us to “celebrate” exactly 10 years of nothing. @DavidVaisbord

Exactly 10 years ago BC Housing and the BC Liberal Government started pushing people out of their homes at Little Mountain Social Housing. 224 units of social housing and a successful community were destroyed by the provincial government with the promise that they would be quickly rebuilt. Today, Little Mountain is a giant vacant lot.

“#monsanto Knowingly Sold Human Carcinogen To Consumers.” #glyphosate

The Story begins as early as the 1980s when laboratory tests on glyphosate began to show cellular changes in laboratory animals that should have been considered early signals of a relationship to cancer.In fact in 1985 the EPA during a time when it was actually effective; a time when it actually worked on behalf of a safe environment, determined that glyphosate the primary ingredient of Roundup needed to be classified as a class C carcinogen which meant that it clearly was suggestive of a relationship to cancer.But then miraculously 6 years later the EPA suddenly changes that classification to something just the opposite where they claim that NO they were wrong; and overnight glyphosate according to the EPA and Monsanto the public now has no worries about cancer. Nothing to worry about here … move on.

GEO Group paid trump off. Now Sessions is filling their prison beds. | Pls SIgn

Yes, GEO Group illegally donated to the Trump campaign. It is against federal campaign finance laws for companies that receive government contracts, to give political campaign contributions. And IT’S SCARY that the Federal Election Commission MIGHT fail to do its job by acting like it didn’t happen in the first place.  As soon as the Trump Administration’s reigned in on the White House, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions — whose two former aides now work for GEO Group–immediately reversed the ban on federal private prisons. Soon after, GEO Group received contracts from the DOJ once again. To make it all worse, Jeff Sessions released a memo calling on 94 U.S. Attorneys to seek the harshest sentencing for drug offenses — completely undoing years of transformative progress on sentencing reform.

Urgent Warning Issued by Human Rights Group over New Police Bill in Congress | via @freeanons

(ANTIMEDIA) Last week, Human Rights Watch penned an open letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees voicing their strong opposition to a new bill that would make it nearly impossible to sue police for constitutional violations. Senator John Cornyn (R-Tex.) and Representative Ted Poe (R-Tex.) proposed the identical bills on May 16th “o protect law enforcement officers, and for other purposes.” Co-Director of Human Rights Watch Alison Parker writes that H.R. 2437/S.B. 1134, or the “Back the Blue Act,” doesn’t protect police from danger, but rather “protects police departments from liability, and removes incentives for those departments to monitor
