DNC reverses ban on fossil fuel PAC donations



DNC reverses ban on fossil fuel donations

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) overwhelmingly passed a resolution on Friday evening saying it welcomes donations from fossil fuel industry workers and “employers’ political action committees.”

<->

Christine Pelosi, a DNC member who co-authored the June resolution, offered an amendment to Perez’s measure that would strike the words “employers’ political action committees" to discourage donations from corporate PACs.

Pelosi said removing that language would reaffirm that Democratic Party’s “commitment to overturn Citizens United and banning corporate PAC money.”

But the motion to amend the language proposed by Pelosi failed, 4 to 28. The DNC’s executive committee voted to approve the original resolution, 30 to 2.

End of U.S Blockade Against Cuba is Demanded in Streets of Miami





End of U.S Blockade Against Cuba is Demanded in Streets of Miami

Washington, July 9 (Prensa Latina) The Martiana Alliance coalition, which gathers various organizations of Cuban emigrants in the U.S. city of Miami, Florida, called today for a new protest against the U.S. blockade imposed on the island.

It also called for a full normalization of relations between the two peoples and governments, and an end to restrictions on Americans traveling freely to Cuba.

<>

We cannot sit idly while our families and the rest of the Cuban people suffer the consequences of these cruel and arbitrary policies by the administration of President Donald Trump,' said Andres Gomez, national coordinator of the Antonio Maceo Brigade, a member of that entity.

He also criticized the position of the Cuban extreme right wing allied with the government in the city.
