H.R. 1945, the Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act, would cut off federal funding of Honduran military and police operations, at least until Honduras's government investigates and prosecutes human rights violations by their security forces against activists there -- activists like Berta Cáceres herself, murdered in 2016, with two of the eight suspects arrested in her murder linked to the notorious School of the Americas (now WHINSEC). But Honduras has long been hostile to those who speak out for indigenous rights, be they protestors, farmers, or journalists; 2014 saw a dozen such activists get killed. But don't confuse this with our President's cutting off of humanitarian aid to Honduras -- humanitarian aid contributes rather more to security in Honduras than arming their security forces does. Hence Roots Action helps you tell your Congressfolk to support human rights by passing the Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act.
Meanwhile, Environmental Action helps you tell our Administration to comply with a federal court order to strengthen coal ash storage regulations in order to protect good Americans' clean water. Our Administration has a dismal record trying to defend its regulations in federal courts, but it has also shown, shall we say, a reticence to obey the will of the people as expressed in our laws and the courts that interpret them. Coal ash contains arsenic, mercury, and plenty of other goodies that make people and wildlife sick, and you can now find groundwater pollution near coal ash sites in nearly half of all American states. Of course, this Administration cares little for the world we pass on to our descendents -- it cares only about the now, and more specifically about the riches that can be plundered by bosses now. In a way, they're like the right-wing caricature of liberals. But they ain't the boss of us.
Finally, Education Secretary DeVos got a lot of negative publicity last week for announcing her intention to cut federal funding for the Special Olympics, but you can't discount the possibility that she took the hit on that so she could slip even more nefarious cuts past us -- like cutting billions of dollars from public education funding and crafting billions more in unearned tax credits for private schools. I wish I could put this some other way, but our Administration hates any part of our government that actually works on the people's behalf, and acts like our government's sole purpose is to funnel taxpayer money to Administration cronies. Hence CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject the priorities of our Education Secretary and properly fund our public schools. And if you're the fool who says states fund public schools you libtard ha ha I said libtard snort, don't also be the fool who constantly whines about how high your property taxes are.
