Deaths of six men tied to Ferguson protests alarm activists

AssociatedPress, March 18, 2019

Two young men were found dead inside torched cars. Three others died in apparent “suicides.” Another collapsed on a bus, his death ruled an overdose.

The six deaths, all involving men with connections to protests in Ferguson, Missouri, drew attention on social media and speculation in the activist community that something sinister was at play.

Ferguson erupted in protests in August 2014 after officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old Michael  Brown during a street confrontation. Brown was unarmed, but Wilson said he fired in self-defense when the Black teenager approached him.

A grand jury declined to charge Wilson in November 2014, prompting one of the most violent nights of demonstrations, and one of the first activist deaths.

Activists say there is a possible connection of the deaths to the protests.  Fear persists in Ferguson four and a half years after Brown’s death, citing threats — mostly anonymous — that protest leaders continue to receive.

The Rev. Darryl Gray said he found a box inside his car. When the bomb squad arrived, no explosives were found but a 6-foot python was inside.

Deandre Joshua’s body was found inside a burned car blocks from the protest. The 20-year-old was shot in the head before the car was torched.

US Has Caused the Death of Millions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan  

BlackAgendaReport, 12 Dec 2018  

How many people have been killed in the post-9/11 “war on terror”? There has been no formal accounting for the deadly cost of the initial U.S. interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the secondary conflicts that continue to wreak havoc across the Middle East and the opaque, covert war still expanding across Asia and Africa.

Brown University’s Costs of War Project this month released a new estimate of the total death toll from the U.S. wars in three countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The numbers, while conservatively estimated, are staggering. Brown’s researchers estimate that at least 480,000 people have been directly killed by violence over the course of these conflicts, more than 244,000 of them civilians. In addition to those killed by direct acts violence, the number of indirect deaths — those resulting from disease, displacement, and the loss of critical infrastructure — is believed to be several times higher, running into the millions.

Millions of children in America can’t afford food

An alarming number of children in America can’t afford food  

MarketWatch, May 2, 2019

Millions of Americans don’t have enough money to buy healthy food –– and kids are most at risk.

A staggering 97% of counties in the U.S. are home to people who can’t afford or don’t have access to healthy food, according to a study released Wednesday by Feeding America, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that has a network of more than 200 food banks nationwide.

Children are suffering the most: One in six kids (or 12.5 million children) are considered to be food insecure, and an estimated 750,000 live in New York City and Los Angeles.  

These families are more likely to live in disadvantaged urban areas and also southern U.S. states –– areas with “food deserts” that don’t have easy access to healthy food. Experts say many families that are “food insecure” often work low-paid jobs to pay for rent and utilities, and other expenses like school supplies for their children. They may have little left over for healthy food, but may not always qualify for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as food stamps.

Бедность в США

Уровень бедности в США

Ежегодно в Америке становится всё больше людей, вынужденных жить в картонных коробках, палатках или в приюте для бездомных.  

Бедность в США с каждым годом становится всё более обыденным явлением.

Под бедностью понимается тяжёлое экономическое положение человека. Оно не позволяет ему удовлетворять даже минимальные потребности для существования.

Согласно статистике, за порогом бедности в Соединённых Штатах проживает 32% населения страны.

Экономика США сильно ослабла. У современных американцев всё меньше и меньше возможностей отстаивать свои жизненные интересы – право на здоровье и хорошие пенсионные накопления. 

Огромное количество людей вынуждены жить на нижайшем социальном уровне, не имея никаких перспектив. Легендарное выражение «американская мечта» вызывает у них только саркастическую усмешку.

Ситуация ухудшилась после социальной реформы Б. Обамы. Сегодня экономическая безопасность остается главным вызовом для страны. И американцы всё меньше готовы на него ответить. За последние 15-20 лет американское общество наблюдало период почти полного отсутствия контроля за операциями на банковском и финансовом рынках и со стороны конгресса, и со стороны Белого Дома.

С приходом к власти Д. Трампа  нетерпимость к бедным в обществе усилилась.
