California Oil Officials Release Deeply Flawed Fracking Environmental Review

Free Mumia Abu-Jamal for Freedom of Press
As we reclaim the legacy of Martin Luther King (January 15, 1929 to April 4, 1968), our response to the phony concern of the racist, warmongering nations of the world, including Nazi USA, for freedom of the press after their CIA-staged attack on a magazine, must be the immediate freedom for political prisoner and former President of the Black Journalists Association, Mumia Abu-Jamal....

DPR Recommendations Leave Schoolchildren, Rural Communities At Risk from Pesticides
Sacramento, CA – Today the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) announced new “recommended restrictions” on the use of chloropicrin, a cancer-causing pesticide used widely on California strawberries. Health, environmental and rural advocates say that DPR ignored its own scientists in developing today’s proposal, and that the recommended restrictions fall far short of protecting schoolchildren and rural residents from harmful exposures to the toxic pesticide....

National Efforts for Police Accountability and Community Empowerment Must Include Salinas
Most of the poor and Spanish-speaking population lives in East Salinas, on the “wrong side” of the 101 Freeway. On the west end are predominately better-off communities. Some people call this divide the “lettuce” curtain. From March through July of this year, police killed four East Salinas residents who had no weapons, save work tools like a leafing knife, shears, or a common cell phone. One young woman videotaped officers with guns drawn against one of those residents; the man appeared scar...

The Atack against Charlie Hebdo
After the attack against Charlie Hebdo, all the formidable power of the media and bourgeois propaganda kicked in to use the emotion born of the bloody massacre to rouse support for "national unity" and the "values of the Republic." the Government, parties of the left, right and far- right (excised by the organizers of the Paris march, the far-right Front National (FN) of le Pen called for demonstrations in the provinces), trade union apparachniks and multiple associations called for large dem...
