Petition: investigate Roger Stone’s sentencing recommendation

People for the American Way

TYOUR SIGNATURE NEEDED: Sign the petition calling for an investigation into Roger Stone’s sentencing recommendation! >>

After a lengthy investigation and trial involving the criminal activity of Trump’s longtime crony, Roger Stone, Trump has openly attempted to influence his sentencing by tweeting about how Stone has been treated “very unfairly.”

Following the public pressure from Trump to reduce the sentencing, the DOJ REDUCED the recommendation that prosecutors originally made to the court. A flagrant abuse of the justice system.

We cannot stand for it.

Add your name immediately to demand an investigation into Roger Stone’s sentencing recommendations!

Thank you,

— Zach

Demand an investigation! Sign the petition

Robert,

Following a lengthy investigation and conviction of President Trump’s right-hand man, Roger Stone, Trump publicly and vociferously criticized the sentencing recommendation made by career Department of Justice officials after which DOJ leaders withdrew their support for the recommendations and called for a more lenient sentence. This egregious breach of justice has caused EVERY one of the career prosecutors involved in the case to resign from their posts.

Sign the petition today DEMANDING an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Roger Stone’s sentencing recommendation>>

Now that Trump has gotten away with pressuring a foreign government into investigating his political rivals, he apparently thinks that the law doesn’t apply – to himself or any of his closest allies.

Well we’re not going to stand for it. The Department of Justice’s Inspector General should investigate this matter and we are calling on the House Judiciary Committee to demand answers from the Department of Justice as well. This politicization of the Justice Department that should remain independent of such influences undermines the rule of law and all Americans should be alarmed.

If you sign today, we’ll be sure that your name is included when we deliver the petition signatures next week to House Judiciary Chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler!>>

We must ensure that Trump and his allies are held accountable and remind them that NOBODY is above the law!

Thanks for all that you do,

— Zach, PFAW

Do you support Bernie Sanders? [YES or NO]

<> on August 14, 2015 in Clear Lake, Iowa.Following victories in early primary states, Senator Bernie Sanders is surging in polling across the country – with key states and the national averages seeing increases. Does the recent “Sanders surge” affect whether you support him?

Do you support Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary?

YES>>

NO>>

UNSURE>>

This new pulse poll closes tonight when the debate starts, so please respond quickly!

With the current lead that Bernie Sanders has over other candidates in the race, some are calling for progressives to consolidate their support and rally behind Sanders as the nominee; but with only two states having completed their primaries, others are calling the move premature.

What do you think, Robert – should progressives unite behind Sanders or wait until more states finish their primaries?

Take the new member pulse poll today! >>

Thanks for all that you do,

Petition: Amazon plastic in the ocean

Billions of pounds of plastic end up in the ocean each year and Nicole thinks Amazon can help stop it. So do the 270,000+ people who have signed her petition asking the retail giant to offer plastic-free packaging. Nicole is researching how to pilot plastic-free Amazon packaging in her home town of Long Island. She needs continued support for it to be successful – join the movement to reduce Amazon waste now.

Thousands of the products on Amazon are shipped with plastic wrapping and cushioning materials unnecessarily.

We are petitioning for a ‘Plastic-free’ option at checkout and ‘Plastic-free’ labeling available for sellers who already choose eco alternatives.

It’s unfair that so much plastic is being put into the world when it is avoidable and safe eco options to replace bubble wrap, shrink wrap and styrofoam are available.

According to scientists, about 17.6 billion pounds of plastic enter the ocean annually and there are more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating in our oceans. Why add more?

Please grant consumers the choice to go ‘Plastic-free’. It’s not acceptable for major businesses to leave consumers with so few choices and we are fed plastic we didn’t ask for that later ends up in landfills or in our rivers and oceans. Plastic-free choices should be accessible and plentiful if we want to see lasting change and a dramatic decrease in plastic waste.  Let’s take a big step forward and make ‘Plastic-free’ a regular option on all checkout forms. Amazon has an opportunity to set a GREAT example.

[submedia] SIGNAL BOOST – Round Up of Raids on Wet’suwet’en Territory

Support The Battle: DONATE

On December 31, 2019, BC Supreme Court Justice Marguerite Church extended Coastal GasLink’s injunction order from an interim injunction to an interlocutory injunction. Members of the Wet’suwet’en nation have been stewarding and protecting their traditional territories from the destruction of multiple pipelines, including Coastal GasLink’s (CGL) liquified natural gas (LNG) pipeline.

Hereditary Chiefs of all five Wet’suwet’en clans rejected Church’s decision, which criminalizes Anuk ‘nu’at’en (Wet’suwet’en law), and issued and enforced an eviction of CGL’s workers from the territory January 4, 2020. [Watch the eviction video].

On February 6, 2020, heavily militarized raids by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were launched in Wet’suwet’en Territory. These miliarized operations deployed dozens of RCMP along with tactical teams armed with assault rifles, snipers, helicopters and canine units. As of February 14th, 4 violent raids have taken place in camps and villages where Wet’suwet’en people and their supporters have been monitoring and blocking traffic associated with the Coastal GasLink Pipeline (CGL). Among the raided camps was the Unist’ot’en Village, the longest standing Wet’suwet’en Village in the pipeline’s path. [Watch the Unist’ot’en Village raid video].

The forcible removal of Wet’suwet’en people and their supporters on behalf of the CGL project, part of the largest fracking project in Canadian history, has sparked nation-wide unrest leading to the closures of highways, railways, ports and government offices throughout the country. Twenty-eight people have been arrested in Wet’suwet’en Territory thus far, with dozens of arrests occurring elsewhere in the country. [Watch a recap video of 3 of the raids].

The Wet’suwet’en Nation has never signed a treaty or sold or surrendered their land to Canada and claims jurisdiction of 22,000 square kilometers, an area the size of New Jersey. The landmark 1997 Delgamuukw v British Columbia case affirmed Aboriginal title to unceded land. Wet’suwet’en people have been continuously policed for the past 13 months; the first 3 months of policing cost $3.6 million CAD.

This is not the first time the RCMP have violently raided camps on Wet’suwet’en territory. On January 7, 2019, militarized police who were deployed with authority to use “lethal overwatch” breached the gate at Gidimt’en Checkpoint and arrested 14 Land defenders including Molly Wickham, a Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief. [Watch the 2019 raid video].

“Every morning I wake up expecting to hear the helicopters buzzing toward our territories carrying militarized RCMP with tactical weapons. The RCMP have not left Wet’suwet’en territory!!! They are continuing with their oppression despite having tactical teams out of sight. We are experiencing heavy surveillance and oppression.

I see the Indigenous youth in so called Victoria and Vancouver,  the Gitxsan, the Haudenosaunee, and all the supporters from coast to coast. I SEE YOU! I see your struggle and love you! Keep going—we’re close! We are closer than we ever have been!
