  1. Yesterday
  2. In this video, Angela Davis talks about being vegan and what she believes being responsible towards other sentient beings entails in regards to our food choices.

    “The food we eat masks so much cruelty. The fact that we can sit down and eat a piece of chicken without thinking about the horrendous conditions under which chickens are industrially bred in this country is a sign of the dangers of capitalism, how capitalism has colonized our minds."

  3. Last week
  4. In the year since security forces performed a military-style raid on Standing Rock, the crackdown on journalists and activists by the US regime has only intensified. PHOTOS: Since Standing Rock, 56 Bills Have Been Introduced in 30 States to Restrict Protests

  5. Be sure to check out this excellent - and easy to understand - explanation by Richard D. Wolff on why capitalism is theft.

      Underpay your workers and overcharge your customers!

  6. Självklart borde inte statliga aktörer vara med i en klimatförnekande och antivetenskaplig lobbyorganisation som Svenskt Flyg. Miljöminister Karolina Skog gör därför helt rätt när hon kräver att att Luftfartsverket och det statligt ägda Swedavia ska lämna Svenskt Flyg (Sveriges Radio).

    Did you know Americans will spend 7X more today than what the U.S. spends on UN & UN Peacekeeping dues for an entire year?

      And yet people claim we can't afford to make this world a better place!

  8. Earlier

      This reminds me of the Snowden book that is called The Snowden Files. It is about an interview with Edvard Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who discovered all sort of things about government spying not only on civil but also on worlds leaders, like Angela Merkel.
      In one part of the conversation, Snowden suddenly rips of all the cables from the service phone in his hotel room. When the interviewer asked him what's going on, he said that their conversation could be spied through the phone mic even If the phone is not on!

      I haven't really thought about this, maybe I should cover my cameras? But what about the microphones in my computer or phone? How can I secure those? *puts tinfoil hat on*

    4. Simon


      @Holymacaroni I don't think it's possible to secure your microphone, just like they showed us in the video. But at least that's a little less intrusive than video IMO.

    America has their priorities wrong. Why do they spend almost as much as the rest of the world combined on their military? Madness!

      War is war... a nation needs to spend an imaginable amount of money for it. Sadly, there are people that benefit more to it, it's definitely not the brave soldiers in the field but the high ranking officials sitting in their swivel chairs. And a nation has to show off to the world their power and strength that's why they are investing too much to it. But, I just hope they also look into other government branches that need support.

      a very sad truth.

    Have you watched The 12 Strong starring Chris Hemsworth? How did you find the movie? For me, it is a good one especially it's a true to life story of 12 strong US Special Forces Team that showed heroism in one of the darkest times in American history during the 9/11.

  13. You are killing yourself for a job that would replace you within a week if you dropped dead. Take care of yourself. Your life and your wellbeing should always be first priority.

    This is a real tweet, it's not fake or from a satire account. Paul Ryan really is this out of touch with reality that he fails to notice sarcasm and actually brags about giving a poor librarian $78. When an extra $1.50 a week is being touted as a success story, you know things are bad.

    And meanwhile, the wealthiest 0.1% of Americans receive an extra ~ $3,000 per week.

      Yes! I can recommend uBlock Origin, it's a great ad-blocker and available on all major web browsers. You can also try the web browser Opera which has a built-in ad-blocker that also blocks cryptocurrency mining.

      Haha people still use opera?

  16. Interesting read if you worry about your online privacy: Google and Facebook are watching our every move online. It's time to make them stop

  17. Samsung, the main sponsor for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, is still relying on dirty energy like coal to make our gadgets, directly contributing to climate change. Tell Samsung it's time to move out from the industrial age and into the 21st century! Add your name to the petition and tell Samsung to stop fueling climate change.

  18. Centerpartiet är bara greenwashing, för när det verkligen gäller så struntar Annie Lööf och Centerpartiet i klimatet och miljön. Se till exempel deras senaste två utspel angående exempelvis flygskatten mm och köttets påverkan på klimatet. Det finns helt enkelt ingen "grön röst" inom alliansen. Bryr man sig om klimatet, miljön och framtida generationer så kan man bara rösta rödgrönt.

  19. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama deployed drones to Pakistan as part of their counterterror strategy, without taking into account how much “drone strikes are hated on a visceral level, even by people who’ve never seen one or seen the effects of one,” to quote top U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Terrorists such as Faisal Shahzad, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev all cited the civilian casualties from drone strikes among their litany of anti-American complaints. The inescapable truth is that you cannot bomb, kill, invade, occupy, and torture, and then expect no pushback, no retaliation, no blowback. Nor can you cynically arm or fund extremist groups to fight your “official enemy” and then assume those extremists groups won’t one day turn on you or your allies.

      That video was surprisingly good

      Yeah, Mehdi Hasan is a really good journalist. :) It's a shame that the Intercept doesn't have more views on their Youtube channel.

  20. Top 10 countries with the most press freedom in 2017, according to the Word Press Freedom Index by Reporters Without Borders:

    1. Norway
    2. Sweden
    3. Finland
    4. Denmark 
    5. Netherlands
    6. Costa Rica
    7. Switzerland
    8. Jamaica
    9. Belgium
    10. Iceland

    The USA is way back at #43...

      Woah! That's cool. freedom of the press must be really implemented. I wish press freedom is also really "free" in my country.

    2. divche26


      How about the Philippines? After the fall of our late President Ferdinand Marcos and the end of the martial law in the Philippines in 1986, one of the things that was restored back is the freedom of the press that up to this day we Filipinos are benefiting.

  21. The rich are killing our democracy and fueling authoritarianism and right-wing extremism. We must stop them before it's too late.

    While the billionaires flaunt their opulence, ordinary people are losing faith in democracy as they realize that the economic system is rigged against them. We can already see how authoritarianism and rightwing extremism is successfully using this anger to spread their sick and horrific ideology, fueling the flames of ethnic and racial hatred, and targeting the most vulnerable people in our society. But they offer no solutions, just hate and a further cementing of our economic and social inequalities. Only socialism can tear down this rigged economy and bring economic, social and environmental justice to all of us.

    Let’s wrench power back from the billionaires. "If we stand together against powerful special interests we can eliminate poverty, increase life expectancy and tackle climate change," writes Bernie Sanders.

  22. Amnesty International: Israel must release Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi

    16-year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi has been called the ‘Rosa Parks of Palestine’. For years, she and her family have bravely stood up against the Israeli occupation. But she now faces up to 10 years in prison over an altercation with Israeli soldiers.

    Tell Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu he must release her without delay.

    1. Simon


      Also, be sure to also add your name to this Avaaz petition: Free Ahed and all Palestinian children from Israeli jails

  23. Facebook staff met with Israeli officials and now Palestinian activist accounts are being shut down.
    This is just another example why it's so important to support alternative social media sites.

  24. Interesting read about how democracy in the USA is deteriorating: 20 of America's top political scientists gathered to discuss our democracy. They're scared. “If current trends continue for another 20 or 30 years, democracy will be toast.”
