News goes so fast, it can be hard to keep up. But some things we really shouldn't miss. There are so many fronts now needing our attention, it can be hard to know how to focus. Still many things are interconnected if one really looks behind the scenes. Issues of bigotry, privacy, economic injustice, climate activism have many points of intersection.
So, here are three items you might want to check out.
- This one was too good not to make note of. GOP Senators silenced Sen. Warren from reading Coretta Scott King's letter concerning Sen. Sessions. Although she didn't read it on the Senate floor, she did an interview about it and also read it on facebook live (if I have that correct) to so many more people. Later, Sen . Merkley did read it on the Senate floor. You can read about this and read the text of the letter in this article.
- The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has said it plans to grant final easement for DAPL. This is deplorable and the water protectors are vowing resistance.
- A legal defense fund set up for Barrett Brown is suing the Dep't of Justice, claiming they were suveilling anonymous donors. This is a very important issue, as this relates to people exercising Free Speech by anonymous donations to a cause. First Amendment, anyone?
