Chris Hayes of MSNBC’s All In reports that one of the last acts of the current Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, has been to block any vote on the U.S. involvement in Yemen by inserting a rule into the farm bill with language that achieves that purpose. The HuffPost notes that five Democrats joined Republicans in adding that language to the farm bill. The U.S. currently provides many support functions for the Saudi War in Yemen which has starved tens of thousands and threatens to starve 14 million people.
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
