"That Our Mayor Jenny Durkan's posturing against trump is just that because for all her rhetoric about how she doesn't need federal interference. In fact she has gone along with a lot of the policies that that trump would like here in Seattle mass of protesters helped to drive the police out of the east precinct. They indiscriminately teargassed and brutalize protesters in the wake of George Fluids, a horrific murder and trump called the protesters. Terrorists and said he was going to send in troops here to deal with the situation of if Jenny Durkan wouldn't and while she said we don't need your federal interference. She in fact did clear out the protesters with same brutal tactics, and so that's why I'm supporting decriminalized Seattle and King County Equity Now's demands that. We defined the police by fifty percent that we use that money for health and safety, and that we free all the protesters. So, let's turn to the issue of Education I. Want to ask you about President. Trump's push to reopen you schools even as covert rates skyrocket in so many states, major school districts like Los Angeles and Atlanta plan to start their semesters with online classes. I wanted to read from teachers bed in the New York Times. Her name is Rebecca Martensson the headline. I won't return to the classroom and you shouldn't ask me to She's writing from Washington state, and she says every day when I. Walk into work as a public schoolteacher I'm prepared to take a bullet to save a child in the age of school shootings. That's what the job requires, but asking me to return to the classroom amidst a pandemic and expose myself and my family to Covid nineteen is like asking me to take that bullet home to my own family. Jesse WHO GOPI and you're a high school teacher, also in Washington editor of rethinking schools. Can you talk about what you're demanding now in Washington state? Absolutely. You know I love my students and I know that the best place for them to learn is in classrooms where they can collaborate and collectively solve problems. And it has been heartbreaking to see that experience ripped from so many students here in Seattle and across the country as we move to online learning and I don't think that online learning is sufficient or adequate. But I also WanNa live, and I also want my students to live, and that's why I'm joining with thousands of teachers across the country and parents and unions. And communities to say it's just not safe to re open the schools under these conditions. We don't have proper ventilation. We don't have a nurse in every school in the world's richest country, or even in the shadow of Amazon and Microsoft and bowling and starbucks here in Seattle. We don't have a nurse in every school. We don't have proper Kovin testing. And I think that it's time to redefine what public safety means is public safety, a police brutalizing black and brown communities, or is public safety making sure that the hundred and fifty homeless kids that attend my high school have a place to sleep at night. Right is public safety. About police in every school building or as public safety, making sure there's a counselor and a nurse and trauma, counseling and restorative justice in every school right, and as public safety, federal troops in our cities, or or is it Kovin testing for for all of our youth and educators and I- resounding really WanNa side with the folks that say we need to make sure that the money is flowing towards these social programs instead of off the police. Police and really to bailing out the richest of folks in this country I mean this. This government could find one point five trillion dollars to bail out the financial sector corporations, but we don't have the money for for personal protective equipment for for teachers and students. It's outrageous. It's astounding right now to watch this debate in Congress president trump is taking on his own Republican. Party and Republican leaders in saying he will not fund testing. G. To Brown Your Organization Journey for Justice Alliance published an open letter to President Trump, outlining fourteen demands that you say must be met before schools reopened. You say there should be zero new positive cova cases for Fourteen Consecutive Days School H. Vac units must be fully functional teacher. Student ratio must be one in ten talk about your demands. So amy and amy to my brother Jesse's comments I. Think you know it is. It is really just my. was happening right now but I want to say that. The Jennifer Justice Alliance. Would I thirty six a member affiliates in? Thirty. Six cities across the country. We poured our members, and then we pulled allies to say you know what. What would a safe and equitable return? Look like for you and so that's how we came with those demands. With very clear. That in a system that has never even reached the mandate of Brown v Board that has never even reached equality. Let alone equity. That is never to make it to make your plane. That is never shown black and Brown children and indigenous children love. We would be crazy to just send our children back into a system that is being carnivorous towards young people, Brothers like Jesse have had to work despite the system not in concert with system, not with the support of the system. They've had to create their own organizations where they can come together and say what is culturally relevant Rick Look. Like how do we get more black teachers in the school system? So we had to make sure that. We organized to make sure that schools opened the way that we are satisfied with. Here's a point.

Coronavirus: What You Need To Know
"As each state has now taken at least a step toward easing restrictions meant to contain the corona virus. We're getting a clearer. Picture of communities have been most affected. It's lower income communities and communities of color particularly in New York City where twenty seven percent of people in those neighborhoods tested positive for coronavirus. Antibodies compared to nineteen percent of the general citywide population. The spread is continuing in those communities. And that's where the new cases are coming. Andrew Cuomo said today. The gap is even wider in certain parts of the Bronx and Brooklyn where more than forty percent of. The people have the antibodies. That's where the cases coming from. That's where the new hospitalizations coming from. That's going into the hospital system. That's where you're going to see the highest number of deaths. He said the state would begin. A public health education campaign in housing projects and distribute masks and hand sanitizer getting the P. p. e. into the community getting the hand sanitizer into the community explaining social distancing. And why that's so important and explain how this virus spreads its public health education effort to those who live in public housing. This is overdue. The density makes social distancing difficult and leaves tenants vulnerable this week. Abc News is offering special coverage of the disproportionate impact of Corona virus on Black Hispanic and indigenous Americans in a series called a nation divided. Ju- Brown joins US FROM JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE ALLIANCE IN CHICAGO. Why is this virus hitting communities of color so hard you know Cova crisis just unveils? Horrible practice that we've experienced really for decades in this country which has been the sabotage of our basic quality of life institutions food production delivery systems health care education housing economic development So those things that many Americans take for granted. We often have to fight and scratch for so. This crisis really exposes our country's lack of willingness to address these issues. How does that play where you are in Chicago? Going to pandemic really a hit. We started seek death with around the country is Chicago today. Early thirty percent of the population we would seventy percent of the deaths and while this is happening Many of our hospitals were on the brink of closing such as Mercy Hospital. We've already lost. Michael Reese Hospital in virtually every other hospital in the black community has been starved to the point of really minimum capacity but at me when the pandemic hit many of our people who have pre existing conditions. We go to the hospital with sent back home right. I HAVE FAMILY FAMILY MEMBER. Who would sit back home from the Emergency Room? Three times and died. What's causing these gaps and disparities? Will you know This African proverb that says the truth. The simple complicated is a lot and I think at some point. We have to realize that America has never dealt with her ugly which is a baseless hatred for Black Brown indigenous families. It's to tional. Racism is the reason institutional. Racism is at play so people going to say that black people get Kobe because we are not listening right while ignoring a white families that are storming the state capital in Michigan or doing protest all over the country. And they're not social distancing we are getting covert because we don't have health we are getting covert because we're going to the high school in sending us home and so I think at the federal level and at the local level what we must have from people is the first thing humility understanding that you not better than at mother who's a high school graduate who works at Walmart that that mother is working just as hard as you to make the future for her baby. Do you think the clamor for reopening would be different if it weren't communities of color that are now the source of the most new cove infections. I definitely believe that's that's a major part of it at once. People realize that is Black Brown indigenous folks. That are getting sick. They're getting sick.

New York's Aggressive Battle Against Climate Change
"New York is set to enact one of the country's most aggressive plans to address climate change. A new law passed this week will require that the state reduce its carbon pollution by twenty fifty two zero but as north country public radio's Brian man reports it's not clear. Exactly how that's going to happen. When state Senator Todd Kamensky, a democrat from Long Island talks about New York's new climate law, which he pushed through. He's talking about rewiring New York's entire energy system, making the world's thirteenth largest economy free and just a few decades were envisioning people driving electric cars and twenty-fifty heating, their homes using renewable energy in two thousand fifty going to work in buildings that are admitting far less carbon than today. So this is this a sweeping and it's important the benchmarks in this measure, our ambitious. One hundred percent of electric power production carbon-free by twenty forty eighty five percent of greenhouse gas pollution gone by twenty fifty with the other fifteen percent offset by some kind of carbon credits. All of that mandated in state law. Aw. The worst worsening real watershed moment. Priem ogm cars with the New York City environmental Justice alliance. One of the green groups that lobbied hard for this measure, what it really does is just set framework, and a roadmap for all of your state's government agencies to figure out how they're going to tackle reducing our emissions other states have made similar pledges over the last year in theory, New York's law goes farther affecting the entire economy, making the cuts mandatory but critics like Gavin Donahue say, the law doesn't explain how vast amounts of renewable energy will get made or distributed. He heads an energy trade group called the independent power producers of New York that opposed this Bill promises here with no details. Big numbers say, we're going to get there and we're going to do this with zero Vacco, we have got done a technical feasibility study. We haven't done an impact for consumers and costs, this law creates a new council that once appointed will work with state agencies over the next two years to fill in. The details Donahue says those decisions will affect how New Yorkers work and live. This isn't just about electricity generation and production. This is about New York state's economy manufacturing real estate, but the implications are incredibly huge is also no new money in this law, which makes implementation harder. But governor Andrew Cuomo said, this law puts climate change. It's costly storms and flooding and heat waves at the top of the agenda, I believe, climate change is the issue of our generation speaking yesterday on wwl. EMC public radio Cuomo said the goals in this law will be followed by action even before the comprehensive plan is in place.

And how this fits into? We just heard Klein introducing the film and talking about the actual new deal and the money that was put into artists in a moment. We're going to hear no Chomsky talk about what the green new deal can learn from the new deal your comments. Well, first of all, it's so great to be on democracy now, and as always and and to share this work of took about four months and a huge effort. I check the numbers this morning, and it's been seen by more than four million people in less than twenty four hours. So it's clearly striking a deep deep nerve with people in the number of responses, we've heard and received about people who are who are, you know, kinda weeping while watching this visual imagining of more hopeful future. I think is really striking. But listen as a storyteller, and film and television maker for almost thirty years. I've learned that the that there's always a huge community of people making a work most of whom are on scene in this case, I feel like we should have had like a producer credit for the movements that produced this political moment of that. This piece is emerging from decades of of environmental Justice work in organizing, particularly in in communities that have historically and are currently excluded organizations networks like the climate Justice alliance. But also the Bernie campaign of thousand sixteen that unleashed big organizing and the Justice Democrats and the brand new congress. And of course, the extraordinary sunrise movement, all of this building of movements on movements created this political moment from which this work of utopian fiction could emerge to strike the imagination of people aren't accesses a different part of us. And I think even watching headlines this morning the. Fighter flight panic that is evidenced in Greta unleashing of climate strike movement. Among young people the extinction rebellion, folks, we are living in terrifying times and for those of us who are committed to vast and rapid change. We're living in a state of of of engagement that is that is not fun a lot of time. And when I see people's responses to this work and the amount of motion that it's unleashed. I'm really struck by how much we need not just hope which is Obama and any politicians like Justin Trudeau reveal can be shallow and easily leveraged commodity, but in actual vision. And when we have a beautiful art like molly's, a fully articulated beautiful vision of the world, we're fighting for we needed it orients us. It reminds us what we're doing all this work for and it unleashes incredible political potential as well. I mean, this this piece of struck a nerve for for a very. Clear reason, and you know, getting to work with the was was an extraordinary opportunity. You know, having my phone ring at a certain point weeks into the process when I was waiting and waiting for reaction to the first draft of the script and having the little video call icon flash. And then suddenly be talking to her in her office in in congress and it oh having a major restructuring of the first draft. And then I got in subsequent weeks to full line at where she'd sat down with the script and done a very intensive rewrite. And then a very collaborative process in recording. The narration where I think we heard a different side of this remarkable, electrifying politician than we've heard a more internal more dream like state that she was able to locate in conjunction with the art.

Basically the sheriff's office has not been abiding by state laws requiring cow authorities to inform emigrants about their rights to an attorney when arrested and that the office has been cooperating with federal immigration authorities in contravention of state law. They rallied Monday at the county building in Oakland.

"Kids S Davis is a member of the grassroots global Justice alliance. She says she wants the conference to adopt new environmental policies that take into account indigenous people, but she says so far it's not doing that nor looking for real solutions to climate change. We've seen you know, over and over that the solutions they propose are actually just to figure out how corporations can from polluting while at the same time, supposedly, you know, taking care of some land somewhere else. So that they can they can commerce basically with clean air. And so it really is important for us to not. You see this summit ass. Just like this whole thing actually be critical cap and trade is one of the most contentious policies environmentalists are targeting. This is how it works and California. There's a cap on the amount of pollution, a company can emit. If those emissions are lower. That company receives what's called carbon credits companies that exceed the states limit of pollution can then purchase those carbon credits. Critics say this allows companies to pay to pollute and are calling on policy makers to abandon cap and trade Tom gold tooth is the executive director of indigenous environmental network. But we got to look at the details. The details here is that it's about privatization of nature privatization of the air privatization of trees of the ground soil. What out what do I mean about this? I'm talking about cap and trade I'm talking about carbon offsets carbon markets talking about carbon pricing carbon tax is all about a market system is a trillion dollar industry so too big carbon climate Ponzi scam.

"Like the brooklyn base up rose and the climate justice alliance you know who've sent brigades who sent solar power generators and then just all of the money that's been sent to puerto rico in the sort of humanity spirit of humanitarian emergency relief but now i think we're in a stage where we need really political support for for for these movements that that are really trying under incredibly difficult circumstances to put forward alternative you know it seems also like there's a way in which you can few kind of unnerving dystopia quay kind of glimpse of like our our climate future right the sort of combination of debt crisis austerity of public infrastructure market supply chains that produce things symbol causes a failure and then whether events that are supercharged by rising temperatures all sort of coming together in this way and also the vulnerability of the grid which is a huge thing for everyone whether you're puerto rico or not we're now at this period where it's like how do you conceive of build rebuild the public sphere back right move things back from one category to another but without creating more like crappy grid utilities aren't good and i just feel like as an ideological project it's easy to hand wave but as an actual project it's really hard like it's like it's like the devil of socialism in the detail what i will say is that if we're taking the ecosocial it's a little bit easier because it's pretty hard to build a decentralized 'electricity system run on fossil fuels fossil fuels are really expensive to dig up they are really expensive to process they are really expensive to transport which lends itself to monopoly whether state controlled or corporate controlled but renewable energy by its definition is everywhere the sun is everywhere i wind is everywhere and that's not a guarantee a decentralized system but is much much much more conducive to a decentralized model with many many different owners and that's what i actually find very exciting about this transition so that's an interesting idea that the inherent i mean you write about this in the book that there's something inherent in the nature of these kinds of energy forms and this moment in battle and i think it's i don't think it's coincidence.
