Declare Kerala Flood a National Disaster

India’s monsoon season has hit Kerala with enough force to trigger landslides and rushing waters so strong that people are being swept to their deaths. So far, more than 183 people have died due to the severe weather, over 2 lakh displaced and there are still weeks of monsoon season to go. Monsoon season in India is often a sight to behold, as the natural beauty is enhanced with vibrant greens which normally underly the Asian countryside. However, when the waters become severe enough, the landscape gives way to a deep brown as floods engulf vast swathes of the country. This year’s deadly flooding has taken much more of a toll on Kerala, as people are being crushed in landslides and drowned by steadily rising water. The major Kerala city of Kochi has seen its Cochin International Airport close as rains swoop in. Now areas of Kochi are cut off, and flights are being redirected to nearby cities Thiruvananthpuram and Calicut. State government is working hard to remove those under threat from the area and provide the necessary assistance where needed.  Minister for Civil Aviation Suresh Prabhu assured citizens via twitter that they would still receive assistance despite closures. He said: ”The Ministry of Civil Aviation and the domestic airlines will be extending full support to the State Government of Kerala in airlifting food items and other relief material free of cost on their scheduled services, subject only to operational constraints, if any.” The Foreign Office has also issued warnings for travelling in the area, saying that people should be taking care if on holiday in India. Fears of a natural disaster comparable to the Kerala's great floods of 99 are also now gripping residents. It's time for the Indian Government to declare the Kerala Flood a National disaster.   Source: Express

Fire the Broward County Police Officers That Used Unreasonable Excessive Force on Delucca

While the officers whose names haven't been released to the public, were acting under color of State and Federal law as an employee of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, they subjected Delucca to the deprivation of rights and privileges including the constitutional right to not be deprived of his liberty and the constitutional right to be free from the use of excessive force against his person.      On April 18, 2019, in Tamarac, Fl, two officers employed by the Broward Sheriff’s Office used excessive force on Delucca, a teen who wasn't physically threatening them. In the video, Delucca bent down to pick up a cell phone and one of the officers pushed his head. Lucca asked the officer why he pushed his head and the officer pepper sprayed him then threw him to the ground. Once he was on the ground, another officer straddled his back, bashed his face into the concrete twice, and punched him in his head. Further, during the brutal attack, Lucca placed his arm under his face to protect it from further injury and now they’re charging him with resisting a police officer. Plus, Jeff Bell, the president of the Deputy Association states that Lucca took a step forward towards one of the officers. That’s inaccurate! After the officer aggressively shoved his head, Lucca was knocked off balance and he instinctively tried to regain his balance. Since the force utilized by the Officers against Delucca was excessive, unreasonable, and in violation of Federal and State laws, as well as accepted police practices within the United States, the officers should be fired and charged with battery. Please stand up for what is right and sign this petition FREE Delucca and drop all charges against him #JusticeForLucca If you have questions contact me at sonyaparker.com or on Twitter @SlimPhatty Also, email Sheriff Gregory Tony of Broward County, Fl:  Gregory_Tony@sheriff.org And Internal Affairs internalaffairs@fortlauderdale.gov

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.
