What's Up With Trump?
Andrew Levine | counterpunch.org | 2020-11-20

Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-11-20

"These arrests are a huge blow to civil society in Egypt," says Sharif Abdel Kouddo…

Challenging EPA's Failure To Protect People And The Environment From Atrazine
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-11-20
The herbicide atrazine is likely to adversely affect over half of endangered species listed in the United States, according to a report released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as part of a legal agreement with the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD). Based on both adverse human health and environmental threats, Beyond Pesticides joined with Center for Food Safety, CBD, and other public-interest groups in October to sue EPA over its decision to reapprove atrazine, an endocrine-disrupting herbicide banned across much of the world.

Five reasons why a moratorium is the right next step in our fight to #CancelAnimalAg
Almira Tanner | indybay.org | 2020-11-20
If you're reading this, I likely don't need to tell you that something is deeply wrong and unjust about animal agriculture. This industry tortures and kills trillions of animals each year, forces marginalized people to work in unsafe and traumatizing environments, and is a leading contributor of greenhouse gases, ocean dead zones, and pandemic-causing zoonotic diseases. We need to completely abolish animal agriculture and transition to a more just, plant-based food system, but it's not going to happen overnight.
