Friday 6/7

Friday 6/7

U.S. border officials are forcing migrants to give up their medications to treat conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and seizures. This is heartless. 
During his most recent visit to the clinic in April, when he saw more than 150 migrants, he noted a troubling new trend: a number of people reported that their medication had been taken from them by U.S. border officials.”
“For Russell, a pediatric emergency medicine physician, the patient who stood out the most during that visit was a boy of 8 or 9 with a history of seizures. According to his mother, the child had been on a long-term seizure medicine in their home country, but the medication had been taken from him upon entering the Border Patrol custody in McAllen and never returned.”

Taxpayer dollars are being used to pay soldiers to paint a racist wall. Children have died and they won’t hire enough doctors, but they can use our soldiers to paint a wall for aesthetics. 
Members of the military deployed near the U.S.-Mexico border have been assigned to spend a month painting a mile-long stretch of barriers to improve their "aesthetic appearance."”  
It is time to defund hate.

Trump administration asks Congress to make disrupting pipeline construction a crime punishable by twenty years in prison. Indigenous rights/climate activism is one of the most dangerous in the world. Pay attention.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation surveyed 500 experts to determine where women were most at risk. Countries were ranked in six key areas: health care, sexual violence, nonsexual violence, cultural practices, discrimination and human trafficking. Nine of the top 10 nations were in Asia, the Middle East or Africa. The only Western nation included was the U.S., which the foundation said was directly related to the #MeToo movement that rocked American society in the wake of rape and sexual harassment allegations against high-profile figures in 2017.”

We aren’t facing just a cyberwar with Russia. This is something to stick a pin in. 
The U.S. Navy on Friday said that a Russian destroyer nearly collided with one of its guided missile cruisers after an “unsafe and unprofessional” approach in the Philippine Sea.”
The Russian ship “accelerated and closed to an unsafe distance of ~50-100 feet,” forcing the U.S. vessel to “execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid collision,” the statement read.”
