Justice for the Murder of Rayshard Brooks
Rayshard Brooks, SAY HIS NAME. An unarmed, 27 year old black man who was murdered after complaints of him sleeping in HIS vehicle in the Wendy’s Parking lot. Due to these complaints, 3 officers showed up to “deal” with Brooks. After struggling with the officers, Brooks began to run for his life, when he was shot in the back more than once. Later taken to the hospital, Brooks passed away. Struggling with police is NOT punishable by death. Grabbing a taser in order to stop from being tased is NOT punishable by death. Running away from the police unarmed, and on foot is NOT punishable by death. So for this, we need to SAY HIS NAME. Keep spreading awareness, keep protesting, keep fighting. JUSTICE FOR RAYSHARD BROOKS

China: Release the 1 Million Uyghurs Detained in Nazi-Style Concentration Camps
China: Release The 1 Million Uyghur Detainees Held Illegally In Nazi-Style Concentration Camps By Torchlight Uyghur Group (Mesheluyghur@gmail.com) www.facebook.com/torchuyghur/ https://twitter.com/torch_uyghur http://blog.freedomsherald.org/ This Petition Is Also Available In The Following Languages: Turkish (Turkçe), German (Deutsch), Japanese (日本語), Chinese (中文), Traditional Chinese (繁体字), French (Français), Arabic (عربى), Uyghur (ئۇيغۇرچە), Slawyan (Kiril), Russian(Pусский) January 20th, 2018 Many media organizations around the world have recently reported that a large portion of the Uyghur population is being detained either in jails or in so-called “re-education camps” (http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ while their children are being kept in countless orphanages in the East Turkestan. Recently, we have learned from official sources inside East Turkestan that the number of the Uyghurs currently being held in these Nazi-style political “re-education” concentration camps is more than 800,000. That is a number known officially inside East Turkestan, but all the unofficial numbers we obtained from various sources exceed one million. According to the 2010 Chinese census, the Uyghur population in East Turkestan was 10,000,370 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xinjiang This means that about 10% of the current Uyghur population is locked up. The conditions of the concentration camps are horrific because of the fact that such a large number of Uyghurs are locked up in relatively small and crowded spaces. We were told by several people who fled China recently that people even cannot lie down during the night with their backs on the floor; instead, they have to sleep sideways with all the adjacent bodies touching one another. We have also learned from some Uyghurs who recently lost their close relatives in the concentration camps that a significant number of Uyghurs are losing their lives in those camps every day. The families of the victims are just receiving their dead bodies from those overcrowded concentration camps. The local authorities are not giving back the bodies of the younger Uyghurs died, instead, just burying them in the nearby empty fields. These are just a few of the many examples of the horrible conditions in these concentration camps. How did those more than one million people end up in jails, concentration camps and orphanages? It is extremely difficult to obtain such information in China, but we have managed to get information on some individual cases from the relatives of those victims’ living outside China (The report titled “Political persecution of the Uyghurs – Brief description of some individual cases” at http://freedomsherald.org/ET/unb/ The Uyghurs are one of the ancient peoples living in the heart of Asia. They have a long and proud history, and a rich culture. Throughout the history, the Uyghurs have been a great contributor to the world peace and prosperity. Due to their geographical location along the famous Silk Road, they have been a major force in the cultural exchange between the East and the West. We strongly believe that the Uyghurs are an indispensable part of the wider international community and will continue such contribution to the world’s ethnic and cultural diversities in the future. Similarly, the Uyghurs will contribute to the world's peace and prosperity, just as they have done in the past. Therefore, the Uyghurs have every right to live in peace with dignity, and to continuously prosper, as any other nations on the surface of our mother Earth. However, in the recent decades, the Chinese government has banned the Uyghur language from its use at all levels of education in East Turkestan, outlawed Uyghur literature (by banning and burning historical and literature books written in the Uyghur language), restricted, criminalized and attempted to eliminate Uyghurs’ religious belief and practice, and has systematically flooded East Turkestan with Han Chinese migrants in the name of “developing the West”, and thereby marginalized the Uyghurs in their own homeland. And now the Chinese government is openly killing the Uyghur people, too, in those Nazi-style Chinese concentration camps by implementing a state-sponsored ethnic cleansing policy. If we don’t get help immediately from the United Nations and from the international community to stop the Chinese government from what they are doing towards the Uyghurs in East Turkestan, the Uyghurs will keep dying and disappearing in large numbers in those Chinese concentration camps (http://www.freedomsherald.org/ET/images/image201801_13.jpg and will soon face an unprecedented threat to their very existence. Therefore, we appeal to all the international communities and human rights organizations not to ignore the Chinese government’s crimes against humanity – the crimes currently being committed against the innocent Uyghur people. We appeal to the United Nations and other international human rights organizations to demand the Chinese government to release those 1 million Uyghurs, and send investigation teams to East Turkestan and find out: ● Where are those jails, concentration camps and orphanages? ● Why and where those one million Uyghurs are being detained? ● What are they eating and where and how are they sleeping? ● What are they doing during the day? ● What are their current health conditions? ● What are the current death rates among the detainees? ● What is happening to the children/siblings/parents of the people held in jails and concentration camps? We, the Uyghurs, are powerless and helpless at the moment. As such, we cannot defend ourselves against the Chinese government’s atrocities and cannot fight this battle for our survival alone. We need the support of the global community. If tens of thousands of people from around the world sign our petition, it may be possible that the United Nations will make a commitment and will act to stop the tragedy that the Uyghur people are facing today. Please join us in our fight to end the appalling atrocities happening in East Turkestan. Please sign and share this petition. Thank you! About the Uyghur People and East Turkestan: East Turkestan is the homeland of the Uyghur people. It has been under the communist China' s occupation since 1949. East Turkestan is located in the Central Asia, and borders China and Mongolia to the east, Russia to the north, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the west, and Tibet to the south. The landmass of East Turkestan is bigger than whole Western Europe. Its colonial name is “Xinjiang”, which means "the new territory" or "the new frontier" in Chinese. China officially designated the East Turkestan a Uyghur autonomous region in 1955, but in reality it has never become a genuine autonomous region. The Chinese government reported the number of the Uyghur population in East Turkestan as 10,000,370 (refer to the 2010 Chinese census), but some Uyghur sources estimate the real population of Uyghurs to be around 20 million.
Live Fact Checking During Political Debates
Live fact checking should run across the screens or should be announced live during the all presidential debates in order to allow transparency and to allow Americans to make informed decisions about who the choose for President. This I believe would solve the following problems: It would restore Americans belief in the political process It would shift the narrative of two party politics from identity politics back to politics of policy It would hold politicians accountable for misinformation It would create a more curious and well informed public In order for this to be executed properly this should be enforced by a non partisan committee such as the Debate commission .
Ask Metallica to be the musical act for the halftime of Super Bowl 55
For nearly 38 years Metallica has broken down walls and led from the front in the heavy metal/hard rock genre. They are the undisputed kings of heavy metal and responsible for bringing the art form into the homes of millions around the world. Nobody sought them out, they forced their way in and continue to be an unstoppable monster of sound and energy to this day. Their songs are anthems in NFL and major sports stadiums across the country. They've won Grammy's, they've headlined every festival around the globe from Glastonbury to Lollapalooza. They've sold over 115 million records worldwide and have a consecutive streak of #1 chart debuting albums that spans their last six full length releases. They were first ballot Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Quite frankly, there's nothing they haven't done or accomplished which is why it is with zero trepidation that I make the bold statement that it is absolutely stupefying that these American pioneers of rock have not been involved with a Super Bowl halftime to date and it is time for that to change. "The Night Before" for Super Bowl 50 was great, but now it's time to headline halftime and it needs to happen at Super Bowl 55! It's time. It's time for the sugar-pop and candy artists to step aside in favor of real American metal. It's time to put a band (you know, one that actually plays instruments and does it well) on the field and let them plug in and do their thing. We don't need pop-tarts on mechanical tigers giving us flash and no substance, we need amps and drums cranked up and played with power and emotion. We don't need wannabe "rockers" ripping of their shirts. It's time. Give America what it wants and needs. Metallica will not let you down. I guarantee it.

Evo Morales, expresidente del Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia, no ha respetado el voto del pueblo boliviano, la OEA ha confirmado el fraude en los pasados comicios del 20 de octubre, mediante sus cuentas esta instando al odio y a la violencia en el país. Su mensaje de odio está provocando muertes en el país, y no sólo eso, se publicó un audio con órdenes explícitas donde el ex mandatario pide a uno de sus dirigentes sindicales aliados dejar a las ciudades sin alimento.

His hate message is causing deaths in the country, and not only that, an audio was published with explicit orders where the former president asks one of his allied union leaders to leave the cities without food.

Stop Calling Immigrant Prisons "Detention Centers"
My name is Sylvester Owino, and I was in “immigrant detention” for 9 years. My name is Carlos Hidalgo, and for a year and half I was incarcerated in “immigrant detention centers.” That is what the media, government, and for-profit prison companies who run these facilities call them, but in reality, these are immigrant prisons. These prisons incarcerate children, families, and members of our community. People in immigrant prisons are not serving a sentence, but simply awaiting the outcome of our request to stay in the US. Those of us who have lived behind the locked gates and barbed wire know that the term “detention center” does not accurately describe the conditions and truth of what happens on the inside. We, who have survived these brutal places, are requesting that media organizations - The Associated Press, The New York Times, the LA Times, the Washington Post, and other influential media outlets, call these facilities what they are: immigrant prisons. Until we are honest about the fact that these are prisons, the inhumane conditions inside will continue to be covered up by the term “detention center,” and the corporations running the facilities will continue to make millions off of the suffering of the people inside. If these are harmless “detention centers” … Why do they look like prisons, why are they run like prisons, and why are they owned by prison companies? We were incarcerated in facilities run by the two largest for-profit prison companies in the country. Carlos was in GEO Group’s Adelanto immigrant prison, and Sylvester in CCA’s Otay immigrant prison in San Diego, among other facilities. We both experienced countless human rights abuses. We worked for the for-profit prisons for $1 a day, cleaning and cooking. Carlos was put in solitary confinement for 6 days for organizing a hunger strike to protest inhumane treatment. Sylvester filed complaints on behalf of friends who were beaten by guards. In Adelanto immigrant prison, 3 people have died in the last 7 months, and 6 people have attempted suicide since December 2016. Dozens of us have gone on hunger strikes to try and change things. In order to end the abuse, we must first call them prisons and then close them. Starting with Adelanto.
