Greg Palast in Ohio on GOP Effort to Remove African Americans from Voter Rolls in Battleground State

Greg Palast in Ohio on GOP Effort to Remove African Americans from Voter Rolls in Battleground State | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
In an on-the-ground report from the battleground state of Ohio, investigative reporter Greg Palast has uncovered the latest in vote suppression tactics led by Republicans that could threaten the integrity of the vote in Ohio and North Carolina. On some polling machines, audit protection functions have been shut off, and African Americans and Hispanics are being scrubbed from the voter rolls through a system called Crosscheck. "It’s a brand-new Jim Crow," Palast says. "Today, on Election Day, they’re not going to use white sheets to keep way black voters. Today, they’re using spreadsheets."

Father of Activist Injured at Standing Rock Calls on Obama to Stop Dakota Access Pipeline Drilling

Father of Activist Injured at Standing Rock Calls on Obama to Stop Dakota Access Pipeline Drilling | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
We get an update from Wayne Wilansky, the father of 21-year-old activist Sophia Wilansky, who was injured during the standoff at Standing Rock in North Dakota. Sophia has been undergoing a series of surgeries after reportedly being hit by a concussion grenade during the police attack against water protectors protesting the Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota Sunday night. The Standing Rock Medic & Healer Council says 300 people were hurt in the attack, with injuries including hypothermia from being sprayed by water cannons in subfreezing temperatures, seizures, loss of consciousness, and impaired vision as a result of being shot by a rubber bullet in the face. "President Obama has to step in there and stop this," says Wayne Wilansky. "They’re drilling now, even though they don’t have a permit."

Trump has said he will deport millions, and anti-immigrant harassment is already out of control. It is time to declare America’s cities as sanctuaries of safety and not allow local police to do the work of immigration agents. If your city is not already, declare it a sanctuary city. And if it is, commit to do everything in your power to maintain your sanctuary status and protect your undocumented residents from a Trump administration.
