U.S : This new policy for police use of force is nearly passed in California.




If we're going to see police accountability, it needs to happen on a state and local policy level. Now's our chance in California !


These CA lawmakers need to hear from you:
 tell them that police should only use deadly force as a last resort !












Dear friend,


California police departments have some of the highest rates of killings in the nation.After Stephon Clark’s murder at the hands of Sacramento police, folks in California have vigilantly been organizing for police accountability. Now, there's a bill in the state legislature that would limit the authorized use of deadly force state-wide and require other measures to be taken before an officer discharges their gun. We need to make sure AB 931 passes so that the police can no longer rely on claims of fear or split-second decisions.

Tomorrow, the California Senate Committee on Public Safety will hold a hearing and vote on AB 931. This is the first of two committees the bill will have to pass through in order to go to a vote by the full legislative body. If we demand policy change from these elected legislators in California, it will be an important step towards a new statewide legal standard for the police use of deadly force and a broadening of considerations for accountability. All law enforcement in California will no longer have absolute immunity to murder us.






In March, Stephon Clark, unarmed 22-yr-old Black man standing in his family’s backyard was murdered by Officers Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet. They fired 20 shots at Stephon, claiming to have seen a gun but only a cell phone was recovered at the scene. Stephon was shot seven times in the back while his family was inside the house.2 Despite calls for justice and weeks of protest, District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert has yet to bring charges against Officers Mercadal and Robinet. In fact, there have been 22 police murders since Schubert was elected, and she hasn’t brought charges against any cops.3 Schubert was just re-elected last week, despite her horrendous record. This erases any chances of justice for Stephon’s family. We won’t stand for this injustice. We must call on the members of this committee to advance this bill and change the system that leaves so many families with a void.






With the introduction of AB 931, we have a historic opportunity to change the law in California so that that cops won’t get away scot-free when they kill us. Families of victims and community members, activists and organizations have mobilized anew after the murder of Stephon Clark, among so many others. While various jurisdictions across the country have adopted limited use of force policies, this will be the first statewide standard set. The law enforcement lobby is really strong in this state, and have mobilized against AB 931--making it their number one priority to defeat it. But the bill has already made it through the assembly, it just needs to pass the state senate. We have to act now while we have momentum.

France : Des révélations alarmantes sur la stratégie d’EDF.




Greenpeace
FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagram
« EDF va dans le mur » : c’est la conclusion de Patrick Benquet, auteur et réalisateur d’une enquête approfondie sur la stratégie du géant nucléaire français, visible en replay sur France 5.

Le documentariste s’est intéressé aux investissements réalisés ces dernières années par EDF, de Olkiluoto en Finlande à Hinkley Point en Angleterre, en passant par Taishan en Chine ou Flamanville en France. Il a rencontré des salariés, d’anciens hauts responsables d’EDF, des experts en énergie et leur constat est particulièrement alarmant : la stratégie nucléaire d’EDF est non seulement extrêmement coûteuse, mais aussi très dangereuse. 
Voir le documentaire
Le résultat de cette longue enquête est présenté dans un documentaire intitulé Nucléaire, l’impasse française, diffusé récemment sur France 5 dans le cadre de l’émission d’Hélène Carrère d’Encausse, Le Monde en FaceIl est encore visible jusqu’au 29 juin en replay et sur le site internet de la chaîne.

La diffusion de ce documentaire a été suivie d’un débat sur les enjeux du nucléaire et des énergies renouvelables auquel participaient notamment Alix Mazounie, chargée de campagne nucléaire de Greenpeace, et Xavier Ursat, directeur du « nouveau nucléaire » d’EDF. Ce débat est également disponible en replay
Voir le débat
Les occasions sont rares de voir un documentaire comme celui-ci, fruit d’un long travail et riche de nombreux témoignages, qui analyse de façon détaillée un secteur encore très opaque. Ses conclusions sont alarmantes et méritent vraiment d’être entendues et partagées.

Vous avez déjà vu ce documentaire et souhaitez qu’EDF réagisse enfin?Rejoignez les 100 000 signataires de la pétition demandant à EDF de sortir du nucléaire.

À très bientôt,

Daniel de Cullá, styliste et chroniqueur sans fards de la vie quotidienne.
Como perros sin amor, como mozos ignorantes, que no sabíamos follar, pero con una carta de trabajo, nos fuimos al extranjero a buscar la cagada del lagarto vestido de empresario con medallas sacro fachas y del capital. De los caldos de la sumisión y la represión, que tanto gustan a muchas gentes, nos dieron hartos. Hicimos el fantasma por la noche, espantando a las chicas para fines de nuestros amores, aunque siempre acabábamos haciendo sexo con una moza o mozo, ¡vaya usted a saber¡, en noches con niebla y a oscuras, terminando en el barrio rojo de Ámsterdam o en el Pigalle, de Paris, que son los que más recordamos, tanto como la calle de La Ballesta, en Madrid, donde urdíamos la tela y tramábamos la lana de jóvenes rebeldes, hasta que fuimos esposados, y nos obligaron a llevar una losa de dictadura a cuestas hasta que sobrevoló los cielos de Madrid una paloma, que antes fue águila, con postura de galas con plumajes de democracia y mucha misa, que no es más que otro fantasma...

U.S : 459 people murdered by police in 2018.




California has the chance to pass a historic bill that would FINALLY hold police accountable when they kill us. But we only have a few DAYS. 

Tell California lawmakers to change the rules governing police use of deadly force. 

  


























Dear friend,




The police are murdering Black people in California without consequence--but next week, we have the chance to change that. Last year, 162 people were murdered by California police-- and not one was convicted for misuse of deadly force.1 A 100-year-old law grants police too much discretion when deciding whether to use deadly force. District attorneys rarely charge let alone convict killer cops and the Supreme Court routinely gives them a pass. It’s clear that we can’t rely on current law and due process to get justice for Black people.

But, with the introduction of AB 931, we have a historic opportunity to change the law in California so that that cops won’t get away scot-free when they kill us. While various jurisdictions across the country have adopted limited use of force policies, this will be the first statewide standard set. Families of victims and community members, activists and organizations have mobilized anew after the murder of Stephon Clark, among so many others. This bill was drafted in the days after Stephon’s murder at the hands of Sacramento police. The law enforcement lobby is really strong in this state, and have mobilized against AB 931--making it their number one priority to defeat it. But the bill has already made it through the assembly, it just needs to pass the state senate. There's a vote on Tuesday that we have a chance to influence--we have to act now while we have momentum.






On Tuesday, the California Senate Committee on Public Safety will hold a hearing and vote on AB 931. This is the first of two committees the bill will have to pass through in order to go to a vote by the full legislative body. If we demand policy change from these elected legislators in California, it will be an important step towards a new statewide legal standard for the police use of deadly force and a broadening of considerations for accountability. All law enforcement in California will no longer have absolute immunity to murder us.

In March, Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-yr-old Black man standing in his family’s backyard was murdered by Officers Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet. They fired 20 shots at Stephon, claiming to have seen a gun but only a cell phone was recovered at the scene. Stephon was shot seven times in the back while his family was inside the house.2 Despite calls for justice and weeks of protest, District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert has yet to bring charges against Officers Mercadal and Robinet. In fact, there have been 22 police murders since Schubert was elected, and she hasn’t brought charges against any cops.3 Schubert was just re-elected last week, despite her horrendous record. This erases any chances of justice for Stephon’s family. We won’t stand for this injustice. We must call on the members of this committee to advance this bill and change the system that leaves so many families with a void.






AB 931 would change state policy by limiting the use of deadly force so that it’s only authorized when necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily injury or death. Split-second officer decisions about perceived threat would no longer justify deadly force, other options such as warnings, verbal persuasion or other non-lethal methods of resolution and de-escalation must be attempted first.

Between 2005 and 2016, only two police killings carried out during an arrest were deemed unjustified out of nearly 1,200 reported by local police departments, according to California Department of Justice data.4 Too many district attorneys are unwilling to charge police when they murder people in our communities. At times we’ve been able to depend on the Department of Justice when local systems fail us but known racist and U.S. Attorney General, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, has blatantly attacked Black communities. We must take this fight to the state and local level where we have opportunities to make a change.

As is, the criminal legal system is not designed to achieve justice for Black people when state-sanctioned violence claims our lives. It is quite the opposite. The Supreme Court recently gave the green light for police departments to shoot first. Dissenting in an April case, Justices Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that the ruling “sends an alarming signal to law enforcement officers and the public. It tells officers that they can shoot first and think later, and it tells the public that palpably unreasonable conduct will go unpunished.”5

That’s why this legislation is so important, it’s one of the only avenues for accountability presently available. Angela Y. Davis reminds us that freedom is a constant struggle. Since slave patrols in the 1800s, Black people have fought for freedom from the oppressive institution of policing. We are in this struggle for bodily autonomy and the sanctity of our lives. We are fighting against excessive policing as an institution that upholds white supremacy and brutalizes Black lives without consequence. We are fighting against police unions and law enforcement associations as some of the most powerful lobbying forces in California.

We are using all the tools at our disposal to change the rules to make the world a place where all Black people can thrive. AB 931 is the tool we need right now.
