Angola3News: To further discuss the release of Panthers in the Hole and Amnesty France’s broader support for Albert Woodfox and the Angola 3, we interviewed Nicolas Krameyer, who is head of the Individuals at Risk / Human Rights Defenders Program for Amnesty International France.
Mark Naison: I asked for a two-year moratorium on all these policies — no more school closings, no more VAM, no more charter school creation — and a new effort by the US Department Education to have teachers voices have a primary role in shaping Department policy rather than business leaders.
Tina Dupuy: I might be the only syndicated columnist in the country who was raised by the state. So when lawmakers and public pontificators discuss the welfare of unaccompanied minors who’ve been dropped on our proverbial doorstep, I should probably speak up.
Jordan Elgrably: If there are still many liberal Israelis that want peace and a viable two-state solution, they should know that the clock is ticking and they need to take back the country from the vile right-wing. Some analysts would say it’s already too late.
Peter Dreier: Los Angeles is littered with the debris of banks’ risky and sometimes illegal practices — subprime loans, predatory lending and foreclosed homes that destroyed the lives of families and stripped entire communities of their major source of wealth.
Lazaro Cuevas: Deliveries of trash to the dump, now at about 800 tons per day, could double or triple under the proposed expansion. A larger dump and more trash will worsen air quality, noise levels, and traffic congestion in Eagle Rock.
Berry Craig: Any Democrat running for the U.S. House, Senate or the presidency in the Bluegrass State has a tough slog. Kentucky is one of the most conservative states in the most conservative western industrial democracy.
Marianne Williamson: I want to hear what’s true from you. I want you to rail against the chemical companies and their GMO’s — not support them. I want you to decry the military industrial complex — not assure them you’re their girl.
Marcy Winograd: Bekoff refutes arguments that the animal exhibits are educational. “This sends the wrong message that it’s okay to treat animals like this and that they don’t mind being tethered or kept in cages.”
Marcy Winograd: The City of Santa Monica needs to outlaw the tethering of ponies, establish an animal welfare commission, and seriously address the deeply felt concerns of neighborhood residents.
Walter Brasch: The NRA leadership, as opposed to most of the membership, wrongly believes that banning animal cruelty by guns is a “slippery slope” that not only violates the Second Amendment but will lead to gun control bans.
