Rappel Shell? Activists in Oregon Suspend Themselves from Bridge to Block Arctic-Bound Oil Ship


Climate justice activists — including a group of "kayaktivists" — are gathering in Portland to blockade a ship commissioned by oil giant Shell to break up Arctic ice in order to pave the way for arctic drilling in the Chukchi Sea. Early this morning, activists with Greenpeace rappelled from the St. John’s bridge in Portland to create an "aerial blockade" of the vessel. We speak to Annie Leonard, executive director of Greenpeace USA, as she stands under the bridge.

This is Child Abuse: Social Worker Breaks Silence Over Conditions Inside Immigrant Detention Center


Olivia Lopez, a longtime social worker, began working at the Karnes County Residential Center in Texas last October, but decided to leave her position in April after she says it was clear she had been hired to give the appearance of a well-supported medical unit. She says her efforts to improve documentation of the mothers’ care and concerns were repeatedly blocked. "Based on my experience there, I’ve come to that conclusion, that it was child abuse to separate a child from his or her mother," Lopez says. She testified Tuesday at a hearing organized by the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Democrats from the House Judiciary Committee.

“Deplorable”: Federal Judge Condemns For-Profit Texas Detention Centers For Immigrant Families


In what could be a major victory for human rights advocates here in the United States, a federal judge has issued a harsh condemnation of the mass detention of immigrant women and children, calling conditions in the privately-run prisons "deplorable." The ruling by U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee gives the Obama administration 90 days to either release the more than 2,000 women and children being held in two Texas facilities or to show just cause to continue holding them. Immigration lawyers say the ruling has already had a "groundbreaking" impact as Texas judges have started ordering women and children’s release without bond, though many have been forced to wear electronic ankle monitors. Republicans are calling on the Obama administration to appeal the ruling. We speak to longtime immigration lawyer Barbara Hines who represents many clients who are detained in the Karnes and Dilley detention centers in Texas.
