The Innocence Tour begins 1st May 2015 
http://thesavoryfiles.org/#/tour/4569563453

The innocence bus tour was a vision of Johnnie Lee Savory as part of his, and many others, commitment and efforts to end the plague of wrongful convictions. Wrongful convictions have been experienced by many of our nation’s people without regard to race, age, or gender and is a result of a number of factors including false accusations, false confessions, eyewitness misidentification, ineffective assistance of counsel, and the most common cause, revealed in a recent study by the Better Government Association and the Center on Wrongful Convictions, alleged government error and misconduct by police, prosecutors, and forensic officials.

Innocent people the world over are being falsely accused, unjustly convicted, and sentenced to nightmarish imprisonment for crimes they did not commit. The cries of the innocent echo in the wind; no longer can we as a people turn a deaf ear we must not deny love, truth, or justice to one another. As the innocence bus tour journeys across America and to Canada let these two blessed and great nations serve as righteous examples to humanity

The innocent bus tour will highlight and profile cases of wrongful convictions while advocating for the innocent in the following ways: Recognizing the vital relationship between social support and reintegration, we will serve as a vehicle to connect the innocent with community resources; insisting that DNA testing is made available to persons who claim innocence, particularly, those facing lengthy sentences; demanding the innocent be set free, fully restored to his or her rightful citizenship, and given Immediate compensation for the wrongs that were committed against him or her. Additionally, we seek to end prosecutorial misconduct immunity and hold accountable our elected appointed officials who have sworn before God and man to protect the administration of justice by adhering to the spiritual word in which he or she places his or her hand, obeying the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.


Truth must go forward unhindered, human rights must be protected, and the captive must be set free.

The vision of the innocence bus tour is reunited communities and a healed nation where justice truly prevails and innocence is coveted.

How to shower the people with a wave of inspiration

How to shower the people with a wave of inspiration | socialaction2014 | Scoop.it
Did tech gurus in San Francisco really build an app with the sole purpose of sending texts reading "yo" to their friends? After learning that the city had just 16 showers for its thousands of homeless people, Sandoval had the unlikely idea of turning decommissioned Muni buses into mobile shower stalls. [...] there it was: a Muni bus painted bright blue with "One Shower at a Time" written on the outside and a long hose stretching from the bus to the closest fire hydrant to get water. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency agreed to give Sandoval four decommissioned Muni buses, and the Public Utilities Commission agreed to let her hook the buses up to fire hydrants. Other companies offered bus storage at a discounted price, and still others gave free products including towels, sponges, disinfectant, plumbing, bus tires and more. Leah Filler, community engagement manager for Lava Mae, gives tours of the bus to whoever wants them. [...] it sure attracts plenty of attention parked on the street. Issues like homelessness can be divisive across political lines, but what everyone agrees on is how important it is to take a shower and what it must feel like to go without. Inside, the Muni bus looks like its old self in the very front, still equipped with the driver's seat, steering wheel, controls and "stop requested" sign. Painted light blue, it includes a showerhead, toilet, sink, mirror, soap dispenser and bath mat. In the back of the bus sits a giant water tank, a fire hose and other equipment. Sandoval said she gets at least one call or e-mail a day asking how to replicate Lava Mae. Her idea has sparked discussions by other people about turning decommissioned buses into dental clinics, medical clinics or coin laundries. E-mail volunteer@lavamae.org. -- Saturdays: 7 a.m.-noon at the Mission Neighborhood Resource Center, Capp Street between 16th and 17th streets.

EDITORIAL: Jawaun Westbrook, a young man with a long history of mental illness, allegedly attacked two women with a hammer on Thursday near Navy Pier. But at Cook County Jail, it is worth noting, Westbrook is hardly an outlier. At least 30 percent of the jail’s population also suffer from mental illness. The county jail is in fact — and to our shame — the largest mental health hospital in the state.

Mark Thomas, Journalist, Comedian, Activist (In English): "The great thing that democracy does, we civilise corporations, that's what we do. We teach them good manners and how to behave." W/S Crowd clap M/S Protesters playing football M/S Protesters playing football M/S Protesters holding banners W/S Protesters SCRIPT Activists and British trade union members took to the streets of London Saturday to protest against the planned ratification of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a "free-trade" pact that opponents say amounts to a corporate power-grab. Protesters marched through Whitehall and to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, waving banners and chanting slogans designed to raise awareness of TTIP. Later the group set up camp outside the EU's London office, with protesters giving speeches and playing a five-a-side football match between the National Health Service (NHS) and the government. Major groups involved in the event included Green Party of England and Wales, Occupy London, Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), and University and College Union (UCU). TTIP is currently being negotiated by the European Union and the United States. Protesters say that if pushed through, the pact will give corporations the power to sue governments for billions of dollars in corporate courts with impunity and minimal public knowledge. Protest organisers said these cases would occur if states attempted to reduce company profits through regulation intended to protect the environment, workers' rights, public services and consumer standards. They cited US oil company Occidental Petroleum's billion-dollar law-suit against the Ecuadorian government as an example of what corporations would be able to do in Europe if the pact is ratified. TTIP discussions between the US and EU started in July 2013 with the sixth round of negotiations due to start on July 14, 2014 in Brussels.
