In US news and current events today, teacher Amanda Coffman resigned on the spot during a school board meeting and delivered a powerful message to her former students.

Coffman is a former teacher at Indian Woods Middle School in Kansas. She says she resigned because she felt ‘silenced’ when Shawnee Mission School District issued teachers new 3-year contracts.

Coffman says the contracts don’t address the concerns or needs that the teachers have fought for in the past.

Listen to Amannda Coffman's fiery resignation speech to the Kansas school board here. Here is how she plans to continue the fight for better education in America.

Agelbert NOTE: Bernie and the Squad expose the gross corporate welfare queen corruption GOING ON RIGHT NOW in the US Government COVID-19 Proposed 😈 Legislation and abuse of the most vulnerable among us. They provide detailed, specific actions that MUST be done NOW to keep the Coronavirus, exacerbating the threat of the health and livelihood of MOST PEOPLE in the USA, from dooming the US to a Depression WORSE than the Great Depression 😵. Already, the unemployment rate in the USA is projected to be over 30% THIS MONTH. During the worst part of the Great Depression, the unemploymnet rate was 24%. I am not confident that their advice, which is the only thing that will prevent CATASTROPHE, will be followed by Congress and Trump. The greedball 🐘 Republicans AND the 🐍 DINOS are too empathy deficit disordered to help the masses, even if not doing is inexcusably destructive to the public welfare. 😞

Major victory ✨ for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
« Reply #254 on: March 26, 2020, 03:35:36 pm »

March 26, 2020

Major victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe


This is why we never stop fighting.

In a major victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, a federal judge struck down permits for the Dakota Access Pipeline, the notorious oil pipeline that crosses the Tribe’s ancestral lands.

A federal court found the Trump administration violated the law when it issued permits for the project. Specifically, the Court found that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers failed to consider the health and environmental impacts to the Tribe in the event of an oil spill.

This decision validates everything the Tribe has been saying all along about the risk of oil spills to the people of Standing Rock.

The Court has now ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to prepare a full environmental impact statement on the pipeline, something that the Tribe has sought from the beginning of this controversy.

This victory came about through years of perseverance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who persisted in challenging the pipeline through the ups and downs of major court victories and setbacks. Last week’s hearing took place despite unprecedented hurdles, as traveling to D.C. for the hearing became too dangerous amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A virtual hearing was held and I was able to deliver arguments over the telephone on behalf of the Tribe.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Mike Faith said,

“After years of commitment to defending our water and earth, we welcome this news of a significant legal win. It’s humbling to see how actions we took four years ago to defend our ancestral homeland continue to inspire national conversations about how our choices ultimately affect this planet.”

This fight is about justice and sovereignty, and we will continue to see it through until the Dakota Access Pipeline has finally been shut down.

Thank you for your continued support,
