Published on Apr 14, 2019
Today I bumped into Extinction Rebellion a group activists making awareness on environmental change.😲

As this has been a concern of my own I thought it would be good to speak with them and see what their ultimate goal was and how they plan to achieve it.🤔

This will surly be on the news in no time as they walk from Lands End to Westminster London today with the aim of causing disruption for 1 week in order to gain the governments attention.👍🏽

Please let me know your thoughts on their actions and how you feel about climate change.??

Japanese-American Internment Survivors Protest Plan to Jail Migrant Kids At Fort Sill, a WWII Camp

Published on Jun 24, 2019
Five Japanese-American elders, survivors of U.S. internment camps, engaged in civil disobedience Saturday outside the Fort Sill Army post in Oklahoma, where the Trump administration plans to indefinitely detain 1,400 immigrant and refugee children starting next month. Fort Sill was an internment camp for 700 Japanese-American men in 1942. It was one of more than 70 sites where the U.S. government incarcerated about 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II, including one of 14 U.S. Army bases. President Obama first used Fort Sill in 2014 to detain migrant children seeking asylum from violence in Central America. Descendants of internment camp survivors were also present at the peaceful protest. We speak with Mike Ishii, co-chair of Tsuru for Solidarity. Ishii was at Fort Sill Army Base Saturday and helped organize the act.

Border Patrol facilities housing migrant youth are being likened to concentration camps as horrifying conditions ignite fear that more incarcerated children will die. “Virtually no one is taking care of these children,” says Warren Binford, a law professor who visited the Clint Border Patrol station near El Paso, Texas. “They are locked up in these cells 24 hours a day. There are open toilets in many cells, there’s no soap … many of them are forced to sleep on concrete.”

Conservative Leadership Race: Boris Johnson exclusive interview – BBC News

Published on Jun 24, 2019
After facing days of criticism for avoiding media scrutiny – Boris Johnson, who’s running against Jeremy Hunt to be the next Prime Minister and Tory leader – has spoken exclusively to the BBC. He says he would ensure a plan to deliver Brexit by the end of October – declaring the political landscape both in the UK and the EU has changed. But, Mr Johnson admitted he would need EU cooperation to prevent both a hard border in Ireland, and tariffs on British business if there were no deal with the EU. Asked about the widely reported incident in the early hours of Friday morning at the flat he shares with his partner – Boris Johnson said it was simply not fair to talk about his family and loved ones. He’s been interviewed by the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg. Tomorrow, we will have an interview with Jeremy Hunt, the other candidate in the Conservative Leadership Race.
