the_new_deal_ In 2008, then candidate Barack Obama campaigned on repealing & rewriting the NAFTA trade deal. Today, president Obama is now fast tracking a new trade deal, TPP, despite decades of evidence proving that these corporate written trade deal have a negative impact on working class & middle class jobs. They are essentially corporate giveaways. Even though this trade deal will likely exacerbate the trade deficit & result in further loss of blue collar manufacturing jobs, Obama is doing this deal more for geopolitical reasons rather than economics. He likely sees this trade deal with Pacific Rim countries as part of his foreign policy shift to Asia. With China's economic power & regional dominance growing each year, TPP provides a way for the U.S. to gain strategic allies & a foothold into SE Asia. #transpacificpartnership #tpp #nafta #freetrade #wto #worldbank #imf #conservative #conservatives #republican #republicans #GOP #liberal #liberals #progressive #democrat #democrats #libertarian #libertarians #teaparty #politics #capitalism #crapitalism #occupy #taxtherich #socialism #workingclass #middleclass #uniteblue #thenewdeal 18min

A shocking statistic released by the US Fish and Wildlife Service on May 18th summed up the plight of the monarch butterfly: Since 1990, about 970 million of the butterflies – 90 percent of the total population – have vanished across the United States.

The massacre provides a grim testimony to the delicate balance that exists between man and nature, and how the introduction of a single consumer product – in this case, Monsanto’s Roundup Ready herbicide – can wreak so much havoc. Sold to farmers and homeowners as an effective method for eliminating milkweed plants, Roundup Ready, introduced in the 1970s, is widely blamed for decimating the monarch butterflies’ only source of #food in the Midwest.
To let the #monarch #butterfly die out in order to allow #Monsanto to sell its signature #herbicide for a few more years is simply shameful.

In an effort to restore monarch numbers, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has teamed up with the National Wildlife Federation and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to start a milkweed replanting program.
The monarch butterfly is not the only pollinator species suffering from the agricultural use of pesticides. Wasps, beetles and especially honeybees have all experienced significant drops in their numbers over the years, which will have adverse effects on America’s crop supply if not soon addressed.

Last year, hundreds of thousands of people united around the world to raise awareness over the biotech giant Monsanto’s growing grip on the global food supply chain.
Activists on five continents around the globe, comprising 52 nations, joined the fight under the March against Monsanto umbrella which will again march on May 24th Saturday worldwide.

labor411 "The nation’s second-largest city voted Tuesday to increase its minimum wage from $9 an hour to $15 an hour by 2020, in what is perhaps the most significant victory so far for labor groups and their allies who are engaged in a national push to raise the minimum wage."

sufianchaudhary I took this picture in Hong Kong during their occupy movement in the central business districts. What was powerful about this image was the obvious discrepancy between corporate advertising trying to tell us what we should want in life, where in reality the Hongkees were living on the streets, holding classes in makeshift tents, fighting for their freedom as a people from an oppressive government. Signs like "Freedom is never given" and "Mobile democracy class room" sit right beneath a Calvin Klein ad pushing an unrealistic self-image of life that serves nothing than to buy underwear with some guy's name on it. The stark difference between the freedom we as a society deserve, and the illusion of living as a passive consumer to simply keep this Monopoly game going, is truly this generation's war for the very nature of their Being. #occupyhk #occupycentral #consumerism #marketing #hongkong #protest #occupy #spirituality #consciousness #aware #awareness #iphoneography #instacool #instagood #blackandwhite #worldissues #passiveconsumer #enslaved #freedom 18h
