Meet Evan Young, a class valedictorian in Colorado. He was silenced over plans to come out at graduation. On Sunday, he finally got a chance to read his speech.

#EvanYoung   #Colorado   #graduation   #gayrights   #news  
Eighteen-year-old Evan Young was supposed to be the 2015 class valedictorian of Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School in Longmont, Colorado. But his principal prevented him from giving his graduation speech after learning he would announce he is gay. Instead, two weeks later, Young got to give his speech at an Out Boulder fundraiser before an audience of hundreds, a number of them politicians who congratulated him for his bravery. We air Young’s...

#UnitedNations   #sexabuse   #CodeBlue   #CentralAfricanRepublic   #Peacekeepers   #UNpeacekeepers  
The United Nations is coming under criticism for failing to investigate allegations of sexual exploitation of children by French peacekeeping troops in the Central African Republic between December 2013 and June 2014. The Guardian obtained a leaked report that says French soldiers raped and sodomized starving and homeless young boys who they were supposed to be protecting at a center for internally displaced people during intense fighting in the ...

#Wikileaks   #JulianAssange   #ChelseaManning   #EdwardSnowden   #whistleblower   #news  
Five years ago this week, U.S. Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning was arrested in Kuwait and charged with leaking classified information. Weeks later, WikiLeaks published tens of thousands of internal logs from the war in Afghanistan. It was one of the largest leaks in U.S. military history. Major articles ran in The New York Times, Guardian, Der Spiegel and other outlets. Chelsea Manning, then known as Bradley, and Julian Assange soon became hou...

Two years ago today Edward Snowden met Glenn Greenwald for the first time to unveil the secrets of the NSA sparking a debate over domestic surveillance that continues to this day.

#NSA   #EdwardSnowden   #PatriotAct   #GlennGreenwald   #Domesticsurveillance   #RandPaul   #news   #Congress   #usafreedomact  
The government’s authority to sweep up millions of Americans’ phone records has expired. The practice exposed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden could now face limited reforms as the Senate weighs the USA FREEDOM Act, which would require the government to ask phone companies for a user’s data rather than vacuuming up all the records at once. We get reaction from Glenn Greenwald, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who firs...

Will Sen. Ted Cruz keep talking about "global warming alarmists"?

#Texas   #oklahoma   #floods   #climatechange   #TedCruz  
Severe storms that began last week in Texas and Oklahoma have killed at least 23 people, and the damage is so extensive that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared nearly 40 counties disaster areas. In Houston, many highways turned into waterways, and more than a thousand cars were submerged under water. President Obama has pledged federal assistance to help the state recover, but cleanup efforts were stalled Thursday as thunderstorms continued...

"It revealed the arrogance and hypocrisy of the United States in pressuring Western Europe."

#JulianAssange   #wikileaks   #Bolivia   #EdwardSnowden   #EvoMorales   #plane   #news  
In 2013, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks played a pivotal role in helping National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden leave Hong Kong for Russia. During the U.S. hunt for Snowden, Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane was forced to land in Austria for 14 hours after Spain, France, Portugal and Italy closed their airspace under pressure from the United States over false rumors Snowden was on board. Assange gives the inside story on why that ...

If anybody needed objective evidence that the American empire is collapsing it would be the US government's reaction to Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks has now published 2.7 million documents in its collection of U.S. diplomatic cables.

#Wikileaks   #julianassange   #whistleblower   #leaks   #leakeddocuments   #diplomaticcables  
On Wednesday, WikiLeaks added more than half a million U.S. diplomatic cables from 1978 to its Public Library of US Diplomacy database. The documents include diplomatic cables and other diplomatic communications from and to U.S. embassies and missions in nearly every country. "1978 actually set in progress many of the geopolitical elements that are playing out today," Assange said. "1978 was the beginning of the Iranian revolution … the Sandinist...

A Royal Navy whistleblower who exposed security problems at Britain’s Trident nuclear base in Scotland was arrested earlier this month after about a week on the run. In an 18-page report published by WikiLeaks, Able Seaman William McNeilly wrote: "We are so close to a nuclear disaster it is shocking, and yet everybody is accepting the risk to the public." McNeilly describes a fire on board a submarine, the use of a missile compartment as a gym, a...
