We then bring you some climate news; the KeystoneXL pipeline was rejected but Enbridge have pipelines that have been built that move just as much oil, while Earth’s temperature continues to rise.
In cyber news; Crackas With Attitude (CWA) hack more government employees and Anonymous continues #OpMonsanto and hacks the USDA. Speaking of Anonymous, the Million Mask March happened across the globe last week and things got rowdy in London with over 50 arrests and cop cars getting lit on fire.
Back in the USA, stories are emerging showing that #CopsLie and that the #WarOnCops may not be so real, a police officer stole thousands of dollars from a youth program, got caught and staged his suicide to blame it on the #BlackLivesMatter movement and another has shot himself only to blame phantom people of color.
The Turkish government has been continuing its attack on the Kurdish population and Israel continues to eradicate the freedoms of Palestinians in occupied territories.
