Parts of central and southern #China have been battered by torrential rains for over a month and more downpours are expected. In southwestern #Sichuan‘s Mianning County, 19 people have been killed and three others are missing. The national observatory has issued a rainstorm warning for the 32nd consecutive day, and officials have raised the emergency response level for communities along the Yangtze River.

White House July 4th Celebrations
U.S. President Donald Trump’s July Fourth celebration, “Salute to America” started with a flyover by Air Force One, followed by a demonstration by the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team. READ MORE: President Donald Trump kicked off a “Salute to America” Saturday night on the grounds of the White House with a speech that revisited the language and themes of the one he delivered a night earlier at Mount Rushmore.
In his speech, the president vowed to “safeguard our values” from enemies within, including leftists, looters, and agitators.
He went on to say the United States would “never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history.”
The president also suggested a coronavirus vaccine could come “long before the end of the year.”
Earlier Saturday, Democrat Joe Biden, Trump’s presumptive opponent in the November election, used a different tone, tweeting: “Our nation was founded on a simple idea: We’re all created equal. We’ve never lived up to it — but we’ve never stopped trying. This Independence Day, let’s not just celebrate those words, let’s commit to finally fulfill them.”
Crowds of spectators turned out along the National Mall for the event, including a large Independence Day fireworks display, despite the city’s concerns about the coronavirus. Crowds started to form Saturday morning along the mall but were smaller than a year ago and many wore masks, according to the Associated Press.

Reckoning with history moves beyond monuments

Toward a Green New Future (Socialism 2020)
Join Thea Riofrancos and Daniel Aldana Cohen for a discussion of the Green New Deal and the future we can build out of our crisis-ridden present. This event is part of the Socialism 2020 Virtual conference. Register for the conference at http://www.socialismconference.org.
As the climate crisis escalates, the promise of a Green New Deal has captured the imagination of people across the world. Socialists know that a system based on extraction and exploitation is inherently unsustainable — we want climate justice, not green capitalism. What should be the key socialist demands of the Green New Deal, and how can we mobilize the power of the working class to win them?
Socialism 2020 is sponsored by Haymarket Books, Jacobin, and the Democratic Socialists of America
