How To Let Go Of The World a Film by @joshfoxfilm 6 pm Clovis Veterans Memorial Center 808 4th Street, Clovis CA

Let Go and Love Tour: A Road to Climate Justice – More than just a film, How To Let Go Of The World And Love The Things Climate Can’t Change, is intended to be a launchpad for education and action in communities. Josh Fox plans to tour the film to 100 towns and cities in the U.S. and across the world that are cited as “Hot Spots” for fossil fuel infrastructure to engage with residents in protecting their lives and land from the encroaching gas industry. With experts, artists, and concrete resources including toolkits, counterproposal support, and connections to investors to finance their counter-proposals, the LET GO AND LOVE TOUR will help communities lead a renewable energy revolution, one community at a time.

B.C. needs a Corruption InquiryAfter decades of unchecked political power, fuelled by unlimited amounts of money from corporations, unions and wealthy individuals from anywhere in the world, laws to ban big money are finally on the horizon.But too many unanswered questions still remain. It’s time to break the silence and hold politicians accountable. To reclaim our democracy from the crushing influence of big money, we need an independent investigation into the impact political donations have had on major decisions in our province.

We’re close to defeating fracking in the UK – Lancashire is the industry’s last stand | Left Foot Forward

Three years ago, fracking company Cuadrilla were in the tentative stages of exploring for shale gas in the countryside just outside Blackpool. Centrica had just invested £160 million in Cuadrilla. The government had announced ‘generous new tax breaks’ for frackers. Fracking was on the rise.We joined forces with the local residents’ group to show that their plans, although supported by industry and government, were not supported by the people.We took direct action against at thirteen different locations associated with the fracking industry – from PR firms to exploration sites, highstreet banks invested in fracking to research units.At the same time, more than 250 community groups sprung up resisting fracking exploration across the UK.

Please Help Stop @AIPAC From Stealing Americans Free Speech and Freedom! Pls Share

Fortunately, this legislation can still be stopped. Here are lists of the Senate and House Democrats who are co-sponsoring this abominable bill. Let them know of your opposition. Just as important, if your legislator is not yet a co-sponsor, let him or her know that he or she better not become one.Many years ago, the #2 man at AIPAC, Steve Rosen (later indicted under the Espionage Act of 1917 wrote me the following about AIPAC’s activities: “A lobby is a night flower. It thrives in the dark and dies in the sun.”The same applies to those in Congress who, disregarding their constituents, take their marching orders from AIPAC. It’s time to shine some sunlight on them.

Democrats Join Republicans In Bill Criminalizing Speech Critical Of israel. Free Speech?

The latest evidence of that slavishness comes in the form of growing support among Democrats in both Houses for legislation sponsored by Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) and co-sponsored by Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer that would make it a felony for Americans to support the international boycott against Israel, commonly known as BDS. Anyone guilty of violating the prohibitions will face a minimum civil penalty of $250,000 and a maximum criminal penalty of $1 million and 20 years in prison.

Fired/Rehired: Police chiefs are often forced to put officers fired for misconduct back on the streets – Washington Post

Since 2006, the nation’s largest police departments have fired at least 1,881 officers for misconduct that betrayed the public’s trust, from cheating on overtime to unjustified shootings. But The Washington Post has found that departments have been forced to reinstate more than 450 officers after appeals required by union contracts.Most of the officers regained their jobs when police chiefs were overruled by arbitrators, typically lawyers hired to review the process. In many cases, the underlying misconduct was undisputed, but arbitrators often concluded that the firings were unjustified because departments had been too harsh, missed deadlin

NAACP Issues Travel Advisory for Missouri, Citing “New Jim Crow” Law | Democracy Now!

Back in the U.S., the NAACP has issued its first-ever travel advisory, warning people of color to avoid the state of Missouri, after Governor Eric Greitens signed a bill blasted by critics as a “new Jim Crow” law. SB 43 bars workers from suing individuals responsible for alleged bias and makes it extremely difficult for workers to win racial discrimination claims against businesses. In a statement, the Missouri chapter of the NAACP wrote, “Individuals traveling in the state are advised to travel with extreme caution. … SB 43 legalizes individual discrimination and harassment in Missouri and would prevent individuals from protecting themselves.”

A Peek Behind the World Bank’s Mask @hrw

On June 27 we released a joint report documenting forced and child labor linked to the World Bank’s agriculture projects in Uzbekistan. We hoped it would cause bank officials to rethink their approach. But then the bank’s country team inadvertently left an internal conversation on our voicemail. Oops! It revealed their ultimate goal: to protect the bank from external pressure and get new agriculture projects through their executive board “unscathed,” as one of the voices on the phone said. He went on: “We want to avoid any more stuff that goes out that says ‘oh and look [a board member is] really taking this seriously, now they’re going to call for a full board hearing.”
