Hundreds of counter-protesters came to Charlottesville, Virginia to stand against the Unite the Right march of neo-Nazis, Klu Klux Klan and alt-right supporters on Aug. 12. Among them were about 50 clergy who had been invited to come to the city by local anti-racist organizers. The clergy participated in an interfaith prayer service on Friday night and during a march Saturday morning before a violent confrontation began between white supremacist groups and anti-fascist militants known as antifa.  Story continues

The federal scientists who put together this report were so concerned that President Trump would suppress their work that they leaked it to the New York Times, given the that the president denies that the effects of climate change are attributable to human activity.  Story continues

Women’s March Organizer on Effective Resistance in the Age of Trump

MP3 Excerpt of speech by Linda Sarsour, Women's March organizer, at the 2017 Left Forum

staterepression

After more than 200 days in office, multiple public opinion polls find that Donald Trump is the most unpopular president at the six-month mark of his term in office in U.S. history. According to a poll conducted by Gallup on Aug. 13, the president's approval rating is down to just 34 percent, while 61 percent of those surveyed disapprove of Trump’s performance. The poll was conducted following the violence perpetrated by white supremacist groups in Charlottesville, Virginia that resulted in one death and more than a dozen injuries. Trump’s failure to specifically condemn the neo-Nazi and Ku Klux Klan groups that gathered in Charlottesville for three days has contributed to his growing unpopularity.  Story continues
