Greta Thunberg Donates Million-euro Rights Prize To Green Groups

“That is more money than I can begin to imagine, but all the prize money will be donated, through my foundation, to different organisations and projects who are working to help people on the front line, affected by the climate crisis and ecological crisis,” the Swedish teen said in a video posted online.

Navy vet beaten by federal agents: ‘They came out to fight’

“What they were doing was unconstitutional,” David said. ”Sometimes I worry that people take the oath of office or the oath to the Constitution, and it’s just a set of words that mean nothing. They really don’t feel in their heart the weight of those words.”

There was no talking. The federal officers, in full tactical gear, came charging out of the federal building.

“They came out in this phalanx, running, and then they plowed into a bunch of protesters in the intersection of the street and knocked them over. They came out to fight,” David said. One officer pointed a semi-automatic weapon at David’s chest, he said, and video shows another shoving him backwards as he tried to talk with the officers.

“I took a couple steps back, straightened up, and then just stood my ground right there, arms down by my side,” David recalled.

One officer began whacking at David with the baton. When he doesn’t fall or even flinch, another officer sprays him full in the face. David then retreats a few steps while making an obscene gesture.

“They are thugs and goons,” David said. “I couldn’t recognize anything tactically that they were attempting to do that was even remotely related to crowd control. It looked to me like a gang of guys with sticks.”

David will need reconstructive surgery with pins and plates on his ring finger that was shattered. A bone in his hand was also broken.

‘Explosive’ growth in COVID-19 cases could be on the way in B.C. if behaviour doesn’t change | Globalnews.ca – British Columbia, Canada

A rapid increase in “unsafe” contacts has B.C.’s top doctor warning of the potential for “explosive” growth in the number of COVID-19 cases in the province. Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says increased contacts in restaurants, hotels, houseboats and at house parties have led to a recent surge in cases. Henry says the recent trend is driven by young people in their 20s and 30s. “We do have the possibility of having explosive growth here in our outbreak, if we’re not careful,” Henry said. The latest modelling data shows cases could surge in the summer and the province is no longer “flattening our curve.”

Florida COVID-19 cases soar again, California sees surge stabilize – The Jerusalem Post

The mayor of Chicago shut down indoor service at bars on Monday and Florida reported more than 10,000 new cases of COVID-19 for the sixth day in a row, as the coronavirus pandemic raged across the United States. The grim news was offset by an apparent stabilization of the outbreak in California and the fewest hospitalizations in four months in New York state, allowing New York City to enter a new phase of reopening.
