Jericho Walk For Our Dreams

ENGLISH BELOW:
Como sabemos, la Corte Suprema rechazó el argumento de la administración Trump contra DACA y votó para mantener el programa en su lugar. Por ahora.

La administración ya ha declarado que continuarán atacando a DACA con la intención de eliminarlo.

A partir de ahora, el USCIS todavía acepta las solicitudes de renovación de DACA, pero rechaza las solicitudes iniciales de daca y las solicitudes avanzadas de libertad condicional. El departamento no ha publicado ninguna guía y la ley lo exige el lunes, es por eso que estamos organizando una acción la noche del martes 14 de julio frente a las oficinas de USCIS en Milwaukee a las 6:30 pm. Exigiremos que publiquen las pautas para que los nuevos solicitantes puedan beneficiarse del programa.

Todavía estamos en medio de una pandemia y les pedimos a las personas que usen máscaras y sigan las pautas de distanciamiento social.

¡Si no se siente cómodo caminando, lo invitamos a apoyarnos desde la seguridad de sus vehículos!

As we know the Supreme Court rejected the Trump administration’s argument against DACA and voted to keep the program in place. For now.

The administration has already stated that they will continue to attack DACA with the intention of removing it.

As of now, USCIS is still accepting DACA renewal applications but it is rejecting any initial DACA applications and advanced parole applications.

The department has not released any guidelines and is required to do so by law by Monday, July 13th, which is why we are organizing an action on the evening of Tuesday, July 14th in front of the USCIS offices in Milwaukee at 6:30pm. We will be demanding that they release the guidelines so that new applicants can benefit from the program.

We are still in the middle of a pandemic and are asking folks to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines.

If you do not feel comfortable walking we invite you to support us from the safety of your vehicles!

ABOUT WALTER RODNEY

In his short life, Guyanese intellectual Walter Rodney emerged as one of the foremost thinkers and activists of the anticolonial revolution, leading movements in North America, Africa, and the Caribbean. Wherever he was, Rodney was a lightning rod for working-class Black Power organizing. His deportation sparked Jamaica’s Rodney Riots in 1968, and his scholarship trained a generation how to approach politics on an international scale. In 1980, shortly after founding the Working People’s Alliance in Guyana, the thirty-eight-year-old Rodney was assassinated.

This class is presented by the Communist Workers League – Detroit Branch.

Palestinian Analyst Amer Khalil: Zionism Active as Ever Across MENA

https://bit.ly/3gPpCLO
Moscow (GPA) – Zionism is as active as ever in their campaigns abroad as they are at home according to Palestinian analyst, writer, and Director of Palestine Today TV’s Gaza office Amer Khalil.

Geopolitics Alert contributor Damir Nazarov recently spoke with Palestinian political analyst Amer Khalil concerning Israel’s most recent activity across the Middle East and Africa. While the Zionists are obviously busy at home working hand in hand with the West to further colonize internationally recognized Palestinian territory, the occupation government is still actively manipulating affairs well beyond within their illegitimate “country”.

Damir Nazarov: In recent years, the Zionists have been especially aggressive towards the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMFs). What do you think is behind this Israeli aggression and the antagonization of the Iraqi people and state that comes with it?

Amer Khalil: The Israeli entity sees Iran as the primary threat to its existence, whether with regard to the nuclear issue or the forces rejecting it in the region, including the PMFs in Iraq, which enjoyed a solid relationship with Iran. Remember, it was the PMFs’ leader was targeted three months ago with the commander of the Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani, and which Israel put in the list of assassinations with Imad Ma’niyah and Hassan Nassr Allah, and their photos were published in Israeli newspapers

D.N.: In late 2019 and early 2020, the Zionists carried out an air raid against representatives of the Palestinian Jihad in Syria, which was a new escalation for Israeli operations. Why did the occupiers seemingly make this such a high priority at this specific point in time?

A.K.: Islamic Jihad is a Palestinian movement that resists the Israeli occupation and constitutes one of the major factions in the Palestinian resistance that struggles against the Zionists, having fought multiple battles during 2019. One of these clashes came after the assassination of one of the organization’s military leaders Baha Abu Al-Atta and was planning to strike at the same time the leadership of Islamic Jihad in Syria, where she tried to assassinate the military department in it, Akram Al-Ajuri, but failed to do so, believing that this will affect the effectiveness of the Islamic Jihad military.

D.N.: The Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council, Major General Mohsen Rezaei suggested that the Palestinian Mujahideen should carry out international renaissance against “Israel”. How do you interpret this statement?

A.K.: The international political battle against the occupation, which is part of the battle against the occupation by exposing its crimes and explaining the injustice of the Palestinian people.

D.N.: According to the Zionists, they have recently made new “friends” in Sudan and South Yemen; what is behind the Zionists seeking out these allies that should seem strange in theory?

A.K.: This is not new. Israel constantly tries to open relations with Arab countries in order to neutralize Arab policies in support of the Palestinian people. Israel often employs a strategy of taking advantage of negative internal conditions in Arab capitals for this. I do not think that succeeds in opening public relations because Israel is rejected by the Arab peoples and even with Egypt and Jordan, which Israel has signed peace agreements with them, the Israeli is still rejected and feared to appear publicly. Once, Sharon said that these agreements are not worth the ink in which they were written because the people do not accept them.

Beijing Rejects Latest US Military Maneuvers in the South China Sea

Beijing (TSN– This military deployment came after Beijing launched out similar maneuvers in the same area.

China’s Foreign Ministry Monday claimed that the U.S deliberately sent ships into the South China Sea to show off its military strength.

Last week, the U.S. sent the “USS Ronald Reagan” and “USS Nimitz” aircraft carriers to conduct military maneuvers.

“This was a U.S move to showcase its military strength in the area. Washington has ulterior motives behind the operation,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said during a press conference.

This military deployment came after Beijing launched out similar maneuvers in the same area.

“By militarizing [the] South China Sea, The U.S. is creating a gap between Beijing and the rest of the Asian nations,” Zhao said.

U.S. Defense Department on Thursday expressed concern over China’s decision to hold military exercises around the Paracel Islands, a territory in dispute.

Beijing’s military exercises at the Paracelsus Islands’ surroundings are within the sovereignty of its territory.

“The U.S. is carrying out large military activities in our region just to flex its muscles. That is the main reason affecting stability in the South China Sea,” Zhao added.
