After 35 Years in Prison, Puerto Rican Activist Oscar López Rivera on Freedom & Decolonization

After 35 Years in Prison, Puerto Rican Activist Oscar López Rivera on Freedom & Decolonization | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
We are joined in studio by longtime Puerto Rican independence activist Oscar López Rivera, who was imprisoned for about 35 years—much of the time in solitary confinement—before President Obama commuted his sentence in January. On May 17, 2017, less than a month ago, López Rivera was released. During the 1970s and 1980s, he was a leader of the pro-independence group FALN. In 1981, López Rivera was convicted on federal charges including seditious conspiracy—conspiring to oppose U.S. authority over Puerto Rico by force. López Rivera describes his time in prison, his youth in Chicago and how he became politicized. He also comments on Puerto Rico’s current political crisis and says as long as Puerto Rican youth are "struggling and doing something for the economy, doing something for themselves, doing something for Puerto Rico, there is hope." We also speak with Juan Cartagena, president and general counsel of LatinoJustice, who was part of the campaign to free López Rivera.

As Trump Withdraws from Paris Climate Accord, California Vows 100 Percent Clean Energy by 2045

As Trump Withdraws from Paris Climate Accord, California Vows 100 Percent Clean Energy by 2045 | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
As President Trump announced the United States will pull out of the Paris climate agreement, California’s state Senate has passed legislation to put the state on a path to 100 percent clean renewable energy by the year 2045. California Governor Jerry Brown is in China to lead a conference of states and other "subnational" actors making voluntary commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions. It is one of dozens of state and local governments committing to fight climate change, and as the state with the world’s sixth largest economy, California is often cited by analysts as a model for its ambitious environmental policy. Nearly 200 U.S. mayors have also signed on to an agreement to uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement. We are joined by Kevin de León, president pro tem of the California state Senate.

Movements of Every Refugee on Earth Since 2000 | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
A new visualization created at the Community Robotics, Education, and Technology Empowerment Lab at Carnegie Mellon University shows the flow of refugees around the world from 2000 to 2015. Although the Syrian refugee crisis may seem unprecedented, this tool for examining big data proves similar movements have occurred in Africa, Sri Lanka and Colombia.

Renata Hill's curator insight, June 2, 6:53 PM
Arguments about refugees often start from a place of emotion and extreme thoughts, like, "Refugees are invading the US.'” With tools like this visualization, we actually can "see" the facts and speak with a more educated mindset.

On Tyranny: Yale Historian Timothy Snyder on How the U.S. Can Avoid Sliding into Authoritarianism

On Tyranny: Yale Historian Timothy Snyder on How the U.S. Can Avoid Sliding into Authoritarianism | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it
Is the United States sliding toward tyranny? That is the question posed by Yale University history professor Timothy Snyder in his new book that draws on his decades of experience writing about war and genocide in European history in order to find 20 key lessons that can help the United States avoid descending into authoritarianism. "I was trying to get out front and give people very practical day-to-day things that they could do," Snyder says. "What stood behind all of that was a lifetime of working on the worst chapters of European history, a sense of how things can go very wrong."
