Fresno, June 23, 2016 - On the heels of the Supreme Court’s non-decision in U.S. v. Texas, which effectively blocked President Obama’s immigration actions to shield millions from deportation, advocates and community members unveiled their assessment of a pilot program started one year ago giving federal immigration agents unfettered access to the Fresno County Jail. Advocates warn that the program is shrouded in secrecy and leaves immigrants vulnerable to abuses by Immigration and Customs...

text Britain to vote on staying in or leaving the EU by Julian Silverman
Next week, Britons will vote on whether to stay in or leave the European Union. If the "leave" vote wins, it will increase the racism and xenophobia in Britain... and be used by similar forces here in the US.

image Hillary does not support equal pay or gender equality at her foundation (Comment On: Anti-Hillary Clinton Action in Salinas) by L byrum
I am wondering why "our" media is not informing us about another of Hillary's hypocrisies - Clinton Foundation Pays Male Execs 38% More Than ... "Male executives at the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation earn 38 percent more than women executives, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the foundation’s latest IRS tax filings. The foundation’s 2013 IRS form 990 reveals that nearly three times as many men as women occupy the executive suites at the Little Rock, Arkansas-based foundation. . . The foundation’s highest paid executive is Frederick Post, director of “sponsor and marketing,” who has built the foundation’s assets to $247 million. He received $484,000 in annual compensation. The highest paid woman is CEO Virginia Ehrlich. Her pay is only $201,000, less than half that of Post’s. The second-highest paid male is long-time Clinton associate Bruce Lindsay, who received $395,000 in annual compensation. All eight male foundation execs earn $200,000 or more. Only one woman earned $200,000, while Stephanie Streett, its executive director, received a paltry $169,000. Altogether, eight executives are men in the executive suites compared to three women, according to the foundation’s filing. . ." Read more:

image response to Lady V (Comment On: Anti-Hillary Clinton Action in Salinas) by thekerry
According to my memory of the Clinton White House years, the Clinton Senate years, and her work as Sec. of State, this list of Hillary's actions and advocacy is very accurate. Perhaps you could be more specific on the "facts" you disagree w/ and provide some links that would support your opinion. By the way, Politifact may claim to be unbiased but a quick search will show many sites and articles questioning that self-definition. I'm grateful to whomever put this list and other info together. I will share it w/ others. HILLARY for PRISON!!!

she was begged by congress to stop supporting oligarch and sweatshop entrepreneur Miguel Facusse' - he passed away last year at the age of 90, but it is his huge family that has rolled back land reform and benefits most from the US taxpayer dollars funneled there since 1982, as shown in my introduction to this recent report from George Washington University. there's also a copy on indybay in the global section

image I want women in government- but NOT another white consort to white male priviledge (Comment On: Anti-Hillary Clinton Action in Salinas) by liloby
As a white female of senior citizen status I have waited since the 1970's to enjoy rights equal to men. We still are not there. The facts of this are clearly substantiated on a daily basis. I want/wanted a female president but it is not Hillary Clinton. Alas, for her & us, she prefers war over peace. She has a record of supporting the mostly male financial elites over the trampled poor woman. In her own Clinton foundation neither she, nor Bill nor their now elite daughter Chelsea have managed to implement any of her recent campaign statements concerning equal pay for women. Despite the immense privileges & power NONE of the well educated Clinton's have utilized the foundation they themselves developed. If Hillary really believes in equal pay for woman why hasn't she ensured this for women working for the "Bill, Hillary, & Chelsea Clinton Foundation"? Instead they misused a true & simple opportunity - in real time & right now - to implement real changes for the female gender. Hence, there has been NO improvement to "our" needed & OVERDUE changes to gender, race, & pay equity for females in the allegedly democratic USA. I wonder - why none of these 'powerful' elites could accomplish these changes at their own foundation? The plethora of facts provide the actual evidence that neither Hillary nor her daughter Chelsea have used their prodigious celebrity & financial status to uplift women. It's one thing to be well paid to give a nice speech - as both have done. . . But what about REAL action? It is the trite & over used political jargon instead of actual change that I object to. Jargon used by both men & women. If Hillary can't manage to improve their antiquated prejudicial thinking in her own foundation there's no way she could do this as "president". This is another example of a white woman who got her "goodies" for her & her daughter & doesn't really give a flip about other women.

La Industria y los funcionarios de la ciudad e incluso organizaciones de cambio social sin fines de lucro son conscientes, pero por desgracia, todos se benefician materialmente y son en gran parte silenciosas, delicadas en sus preocupaciones, o estructuralmente limitados en instituir reformas ambientales y hacer trabajo significativo.

Industry and city officials, even charities and non-profit social change organizations are aware, but, unfortunately, all benefit materially, and are largely silent, watered down in their concerns, or structurally limited in instituting meaningful labor and environmental reforms.
