In a shocking March 20 blog post titled “Censorship, Environmentalism and Steubenville,” University of Rochester economics professor Steven Landsburg questioned the harm of raping an unconscious woman who may not remember the attack, and wondered why rapists should not “reap the benefits” of women’s bodies.

Landsburg is using his position as a professor of economics to promote rape, and the University is defending his right to do so. We demand he be fired immediately!

Send a letter to University of Rochester President Joel Seligman now.

Please share and ask your friends to take action!

Manuel has been living in the United States since 1970, he is currently 71 years old. Manual has 11-granchildren, they each want their grandfather in their life.

Manuel is paraplegic; in 1973 he was paralyzed from the waist down. Because of a recent stroke Manuel can no longer feel the right side of his body. Manuel requires constant medical care here in the United States, deporting him right now would be a death sentence.

Additional talking points:

Six States To Decide Tomorrow On Marijuana Measures | NORML Blog

Millions of voters will decide on Election Day in favor of ballot measures to legalize and regulate the use of cannabis by adults. Voters in three states — ColoradoOregon, and Washington — will decide on statewide ballot measures to legalize the possession and distribution of cannabis for those over 21 years of age. Voters in three additional states — ArkansasMassachusetts, and Montana — will decide on measures to allow for the therapeutic use of cannabis by patients with qualifying ailments. In Michigan, voters in four cities – totaling over a million people – will decide on municipal measures to legalize or depenalize the adult use of cannabis.

Ballot measures in Colorado, Massachusetts, and Washington remain favored among voters, according to the latest statewide polls.

Since 1996, 17 states have enacted legislation to allow for the limited possession of cannabis when a physician authorizes such use. In ten of those states, voters enacted medical cannabis legislation via the statewide initiative process. But to date, no statewide proposal to remove criminal and civil penalties for the broader, personal possession and use of marijuana by adults has succeeded at the ballot box. This reality is likely to change tomorrow.

A summary of this year’s more prominent statewide and local ballot measures appears below.

ARKANSAS: Voters will decide on Measure 5, The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Act of 2012, which allows authorized patients to possess up to two and one-half ounces of cannabis for various qualifying medical conditions, including cancer, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The measure also allows state regulators to establish not-for-profit facilities to produce and dispense cannabis to approved patients. Individual patients will also be permitted to privately cultivate limited amounts of cannabis (up to six flowering plants) if they reside further than five miles from a state-authorized dispensary.

COLORADO: Voters will decide on Amendment 64, which allows for the legal possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and/or the cultivation of up to six cannabis plants by those persons age 21 and over. Longer-term, the measure seeks to establish regulations governing the commercial production and distribution of marijuana by licensed retailers. Voters in the state approve of the measure by a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent, according to the latest Denver Post survey.

MASSACHUSETTS: Voters will decide on Question 3, which eliminates statewide criminal and civil penalties related to the possession and use of up to a 60-day supply of cannabis by qualified patients. It would also require the state to create and regulate up to 35 facilities to produce and dispense cannabis to approved patients. Individual patients will also be permitted to privately cultivate limited amounts of cannabis if they are unable to access a state-authorized dispensary. Voters in the state approve the measure by a margin of 55 percent to 36 percent, according to the latest Suffolk University poll.

MICHIGAN: Voters in four cities – totaling over a million people – will also decide on Tuesday whether to legalize or depenalize the adult use of cannabis. Voters in Detroit will decide on Proposal M, which removes criminal penalties pertaining to the possession on private property of up to one ounce of marijuana by adults over age 21. In Flint, voters will decide on a citizens’ initiative to amend the city code so that the possession on private property of up to one ounce of marijuana or cannabis paraphernalia by those age 19 or older is no longer a criminal offense. Grand Rapids voters will act on Proposal 2, which seeks to allow local law enforcement the discretion to ticket first-time marijuana offenders with a civil citation, punishable by a $25 fine and no criminal record. In Ypsilanti, voters will decide on a proposal to make the local enforcement of marijuana possession offenses the city’s lowest law enforcement priority.

MONTANA: Voters will decide on Initiative Referendum 124. A ‘no’ vote on IR-124 would repeal newly enacted restrictions to the state’s 2004 voter-approved medical marijuana law.

OREGON: Voters will decide on Measure 80, the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act, which provides for the state-licensed production and retail sale of cannabis to adults. The measure does not impose state-licensing or taxation requirements upon those who wish to cultivate cannabis for non-commercial purposes.

WASHINGTON: Voters will decide on I-502, which regulates the production and sale of limited amounts of marijuana for adults. The measure also removes criminal penalties specific to the adult possession of up to one ounce of cannabis for personal use. Voters in the state back the measure by a margin of 56 percent to 37 percent, according to the latest KING 5 poll.

"It seems the oil giant thinks it can intimidate us with threats so that it can push through dangerous new drilling in the fragile Arctic ecosystem.

Please stand with the Center and help us defeat this obnoxious, anti-free-speech lawsuit.

A generous Center supporter has agreed to match all emergency donations if we can raise $50,000.

Shell Oil is suing the Center because we’ve stopped every offshore drilling proposal in the Arctic since 2007. Shell knows we’re effective, so it’s trying to take us out with its preemptive attack.

But we’re not leaving. We’re fighting back, and we need your generous support today.

The Shell game is all about intimidation and shutting down free speech. Please, help us take a stand against Shell’s strong-arm tactics with a gift to our Emergency Legal Defense Fund to save the Arctic.”

Help Us Stop Nancy’s Deportation

Nancy Morales is a wife and mother who is very ill with the autoimmune disease lupus. She and her husband, Victor, went to the Intensive Supervision & Appearance Program (ISAP) offices in San Francisco when Immigration and Customs Enforcement informed her that she was going to be placed in removal proceedings. Nancy and her husband had a petition that she had filed under her father, who is a U.S. citizen. As soon as she arrived to the ISAP office, they put her and Victor in deportation proceedings. Almost immediately after, Victor was deported back to Mexico and Nancy was forced to wear an ankle bracelet until her court hearing on April 8th.

Nancy is an aged out a DREAMer who was born in Guatemala and has been in the U.S. since the age of 14. She has a 14 year old U.S. citizen daughter and, due to her condition, she is not able to work in order to provide for her daughter and herself. Nancy is worried that this might force them to have to move out of the country with no resources.

Please sign the petition below telling ICE to drop her deportation case.

Help Phylicia With Lawyer Expenses to Fight Cathy Brennan in Court!

Source: Hell No Gaycism

I’m a Baltimore City native currently residing in Baltimore County at the moment. I’m a well-read, theory-analyzing enthusiast, & intersectional black feminist academic preparing to defend myself against Cathy Brennan who filed criminal charges against me on April 6th, 2013 for “violation of peace order terms.” Being that I just graduated and work less than 21 hours per week, I need a little help with defense lawyer expenses.

Here’s the background information:

January 1, 2013—
Cathy Brennan filed a peace order against me on the terms of internet harassment. After I was summoned to court and the peace order was issued (which stated I was no longer able to directly contact Brennan via any outlet until June 9th), Brennan contacted a community, internet-based news outlet to further draw attention to the peace order issue. The article was published with a one-sided point of view (not including all the facts or Brennan’s extensive history of targeting transgender women and their allies), in which Brennan capitalized on the opportunity to produce libelous sources. Such sources have given her many opportunities to label me as a “violent queer” to the public as well as on the internet.

Click here to read the full story and donate to the cause.

PLEASE spread the word about this, but DO NOT tag Brennan when signal boosting. Thank you.
