• SUNY Chancellor Johnson Must Divest from Coal Company Poisoning Puerto Rico
    Chancellor Johnson claims that she's assisting Puerto Rico with relief efforts following Hurricane Maria yet she collected nearly $300,000 as an AES board member and owns over $2.5 million in stock. She profits while the people of Puerto Rico are being poisoned. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.timesunion.com/news/amp/SUNY-Chancellor-Johnson-resigns-from-power-13671599.php https://youtu.be/996uiE8bL-4 https://news.littlesis.org/2019/02/18/suny-chancellor-sits-on-board-of-aes-a-coal-power-company-dumping-toxic-waste-in-puerto-rico/ http://periodismoinvestigativo.com/2018/03/toxins-from-aess-ashes-are-contaminating-groundwater-in-puerto-rico/ https://www.democracynow.org/2018/3/9/toxic_coal_ash_being_dumped_in

  • Alderman Cardenas Stop Privatizing Public Spaces
    Alderman Cardenas and Chris Frominos, the cafe owner of Sip22, are furthering the gentrification of Little Village by colluding to replace a popular community square in front of the café with a patio area exclusively for customers. Cardenas has already removed the benches from the community square. The public plazita that Cardenas is willing to give away to Frominos is located in Little Village, on the corner of Marshall Blvd and Cermak Rd. This space and the benches are used by people from the community to chill, catch up with friends, take a breather as they take their groceries home, and rest while they walk their pets around the Boulevard. Also, this plazita is used every morning by a beloved Señora who brings us some of the most delicious tamales en el barrio. According to sources inside the Alderman's office, Cardenas called the Chicago Department of Transportation to ask that the benches be removed, allegedly so that they could be repainted. But when community members in the 12th Ward asked for more information, they were told there is no date or deadline for when the benches will be put back. They also said that if the café patio permit is accepted, the benches would be relocated outside of the former community square. The owners of Sip22 are gentrifiers. Sip22 is in Little Village, but they market their building as an extension of Pilsen to attract white and higher income individuals. Rent in Little Village and North Lawndale has been skyrocketing as a result of white and higher income people moving in, displacing poor and working class Latinx and Black residents. The signature of Cardenas is necessary for the patio permit to move forward. Sign the petition and call Alderman Cardenas at 773-523-8250 to ask about the space, demand he not sign the patio permit and demand that the benches be put back INSIDE of our community square immediately.

    The Army Corps of Engineers recently denied a permit for the construction of a key section of the Pipeline, a major victory for those like Brennon who have been demonstrating for months. There is no reason for him to be charged with those. HELP BRENNON MAKE A CALL: North Dakota State Attorney Allen Koppy @ 701-667-3350 Sample Call: "Hi, I am calling to ask that charges against Brennon Nastacio be removed immediately. He did not commit any crime . Please drop all charges against Brennon!” SEND AN E-MAIL: Allen Koppy: allen.koppy@mortonnd.org To North Dakota State Attorney, Allen Koppy: I am writing to call on you to drop all charges against Brennon Nastacio, a Native American who has not committed any crime, but has charges of “terrorizing.” At the time of the incident, Brennon was openly carrying a knife, which is legal in North Dakota. Not only did he not commit a crime, but he was in complete fulfillment of the law. In spite of facing an armed gunman, he did not charge toward him or threaten him in any way. He has now turned himself in and is now going to follow due process and plead his case in court. There are no grounds for the charges, all charges should be dropped . Please drop charges against Brennon immediately! DONATE http://bit.ly/standingrockfriends
