General Strike Against Trump

All businesses shut!
Bring down Trump
......con el cuento chino del fin de la “maldición” del rentismo petrolero, evaden y desvían su responsabilidad ética, moral, política, administrativa y legal en la profunda crisis económica que está sumido el país producto del despilfarro, malversación, saqueo, fraude y estafa de una gigantesca cordillera montañosa de dólares, los cuales utilizados e invertidos con responsabilidad y ética, habrían convertido a Venezuela en la nueva Suiza por todo el siglo XXI.
No y no ¡No nos dejemos engañar..! la renta petrolera no es ninguna maldición. Malditos son todos aquellos y aquellas que desde hace casi 100 años se la han robado a mansalva y la han exportado, acumulado y “sembrado” en paraísos fiscales, bancos e inversiones en EE.UU. y Europa.
"El saqueo de la renta petrolera, punto de llegada de las élites depredadoras, es el punto de partida de una movilización nacional popular por el rescate del patrimonio nacional, la ética y la justicia. A construir las redes de denuncia, seguimiento, búsqueda y captura global de los responsables del saqueo a Venezuela y traerlos como reos al país desde cualquier lugar del mundo donde se escondan, refugien o los "asilen"."
El peo, como dice Gavazut
Early this morning, March 3, 2016, armed individuals forcibly entered and assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres, founder of COPINH, in her home in La Esperanza, department of Intibucá in southwestern Honduras.
Our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro Soto was injured during the attack. Gustavo is Mexican and a member of the organization Otros Mundos Chiapas/Friends of the Earth-Mexico, the Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Extractive Mining Model (M4). Gustavo survived the attack and has become a key actor in the investigation into the murder of our friend Berta.
In the context of the terrible assassination of the much loved Berta Cáceres, we call on the government of Honduras to pay immediate attention, to intervene, and to follow up on this devastating moment for the Honduran people. We also call for all legal and political measures possible to guarantee the immediate protection of our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro so that, once he has given his testimony to the Honduran state, he can safely return to Mexico. --Read More (english)-- | --Read More (español)--

Support the Kumiai from La Huerta, Ensenada, after a devastating fire ravaged through their community on June 20, 2015. Due to the fire and its destruction of nearly 2/3 of the land, they are unable to feed their farm animals that grazed on the land. Working the land and tending to the animals created a source of income and jobs for community members. Today, some community members consider moving to the city for work. Also, the animals may be sold because there is no longer any food to feed them. The Kumiai of La Huerta need your support to feed the animals until winter and to keep community members from leaving.
Check out the narrative of the fire by Ofelia, a Kumiai woman from La Huerta.
This fundraiser is organized by longtime supporters of the Kumiai of La Huerta.

A full house crowded into the Digital Gym Cinema on August 26 for the San Diego premiere of the film Ayotzinapa: Crónica de un Crimen de Estado.
The documentary "reveals how the forced disappearance of 43 students and the murder of three others in Ayotzinapa was an organized crime of the state, and not an isolated incident."
The night of September 26, 2014, in the city of Iguala, Guerrero, in Mexico, more the 100 young students of the Escuela Normal Rural of Ayotzinapa, that had left the school to make a public collection to fund their trip to Mexico City, were attacked by police forces, resulting in 3 students dying, more then 20 injuries, and 43 kidnapped by the police, with the involvement of the Mexican military.
Two student survivors of the massacre of Iguala reconstructed the climate of impunity, corruption, and criminality that exists, not only in the state of Guerrero but in the entire country. Through an interweaving story, those interviewed tell the story of the actual decomposition of Mexico, beginning with the crime in Iguala, denouncing that this is not an isolated action, but an event with preceding criminal stories that are part of the political narco-state of Mexico.
Within a few days of the state having perpetrated the crime, tens of thousands of voices, especially young voices, echoed through streets and avenues of cities of Mexico and the world, demanding the appearance of 43 student with life, who were victims of the enforced disappearance, and denouncing this act as a crime of State, which to this day still has gone unpunished.
Proceeds from the screening benefit the families of the disappeared students.
The community of La Huerta, in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico experienced a wildfire on June 20-21, 2015, that ravaged through their territory. The authorities in charge of wildfires acted in negligence and were inefficient in fulfilling their duties to control the fire. Also, the La Huerta community is in need of support to continue reclaiming their culture, maintaining their way of life, and keep their lands.
A letter from a member of the community, Ofelia, describes the fire, the interaction with the authorities, and struggles the community is facing. Because of significant damage to their lands, support to the community will help them maintain their traditional ways.
