“These settlements, and the occupation more broadly, are financially unsustainable on their own, and must be propped up by far right-wing Jewish and Christian Zionist funds from abroad,” a member of a group campaigning against the practice told MintPress News.

We are heading towards a mega-drought future & our coral reefs will disappear http://bit.ly/1HDWKOM

Do you agree? Civil asset forfeiture is an unjust practice that has no place in a society that cherishes due process & private property http://bit.ly/1BmEu8E
As noted numerous times by Cato and other civil liberties advocates like the Institute for Justice and the ACLU, civil asset forfeiture is a conceptually unjust practice that has no place in a society that cherishes due process and private property.

To town with Oscar our National Hero
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pZPBlxJzqg
Click on the above link to watch a video about this project.
Our partner, reporter and political activist Edwin Chungo Molina is promoting an interesting campaign to force the United States (US) government to release Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera. 
Oscar has served 34 years in a US prison for exercising his inalienable right to use all means necessary to decolonize Puerto Rico. 
The US government is the criminal for ignoring 34 United Nations (UN) resolutions asking it to immediately decolonize Puerto Rico.  In 1960, the UN determined democratically that colonialism is a crime against humanity because it threatens world peace. 
The fact that the US government refuses to release Oscar despite overwhelming local and international support is evidence that it wants to keep Puerto Rico as its colony forever!
United Partners for Puerto Rico Decolonization joins InformacionAlDesnudo in this project of permanent mobilization in all of Puerto Rico’s 78 town squares to protest for Oscar’s release. 
Starting on January 29, 2016, we will be at the Bayamón Town Square from 2 to 4 PM to begin our permanent and peaceful protest.  Join us, and bring your flags and signs to increase the pressure to the necessary level that will force this government to listen to the people like it is supposed to do in a democracy!
If you would like to be the contact person for your town, please contact Edwin Chungo Molina at 561-758-7509 or molinagrn@gmail.com.  Everyone is welcome! www.TodosUnidosDescolonizarPR.blogspot.com

It may not be Benghazi or Hillary's emails, but Libya is burning & the media won't cover the crisis #ISIS #Syria http://bit.ly/1CasD08
“We have failed to recognize that arming militias and manufacturing a mercenary army under the banner of the dollar would only exacerbate disunity and ultimately play to our disadvantage,” one expert tells MintPress of the international community’s failings in Libya.

Story
Tagline
In a true democracy, independent non-partisan journalism is necessary in educating citizens, who can then vote based upon well vetted knowledge.
Introduction

MintPress News is an independent, non-partisan journalism start-up providing issue-based reporting, in-depth investigations and thoughtful analysis on the most pressing topics facing our nation. We offer coverage of national politics and policy, civil liberties, the war on drugs, foreign affairs, energy and the environment through the lens of social justice and human rights.

A fresh approach in a headline-driven industry, our mission is to go beyond answering the “who, what, when, where and why” in our reporting keeping the stories that really matter grounded in social justice while empowering our readers.

We’re a team of editors, writers, reporters, national and international correspondents and contributors based across the United States and the world. Our masthead includes veteran journalists, war correspondents, grassroots leaders, political analysts and world renowned authors and academics.

We believe that news media has a social obligation in keeping people informed on subjects that directly and indirectly influence people now and in the future, while rigorously discussing policies to drive us in a better direction as a true democracy.

The journey to start MintPress began late 2011 and we officially went live February 2013.
