Israel Massacres Dozens of Palestinians at Gaza Border as U.S. ‘Celebrates’ New Embassy in Jerusalem
Interview with Sam Husseini, communications director with Institute for Public Accuracy, conducted by Scott Harris

The contrast between the horrific violence on the Israel-Gaza border and the posh celebration of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem on May 14 couldn’t have been more stark. As an estimated 50,000 Palestinians gathered along the frontier fence line in the sixth straight week of protests, Israeli Army snipers opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring 2,700 more. This was the deadliest day since the “Great March of Return” protests began on March 30, which demanded an end to the 12-year Gaza blockade and the right to return to land now occupied by Israel.

#MothersDayBailOut Challenges the Nation’s Money Bail System
Excerpts of speeches by bail reform activists at a rally in solidarity with incarcerated women at Connecticut’s York Correctional Institute, recorded and produced by Melinda Tuhus

Connecticut was one of many states and cities around the U.S. that raised money and awareness to bail women out of jails and prisons for Mother’s Day this year. The Connecticut Bail Fund, working with a dozen other groups, raised about $30,000 and bailed out 30 women. The funds were used to bail out 26 women from the state’s only women’s prison, York Correctional Institute in Niantic – and another four from immigration jail. Story continues

This week’s summary of under-reported news

Compiled by Bob Nixon

A decade ago, during a peak in Colombia’s 50-year civil war, the Army lured young men into the city of Ocana, 400 miles from the capital city Bogota. Once there, the young men were killed by soldiers and declared rebel fighters, in order to boost the headcount of the number of leftist insurgents killed. (“Colombian Army Killed Thousands More Civilians Than Reported, Study Claims,” The Guardian. May 8, 2018; “Colombian Civilians Caught in Crossfire as Rebel Factions Fill Violent Vacuum,” The Guardian, April 30, 2018)

The Bluegrass State is set to be the first state in the U.S. to enforce work and community engagement requirements for some Medicaid recipients. (“Kentucky Tests How Much to Demand of Medicaid Recipients,” Christin Science Monitor, Feb. 27, 2018)

Deborah Moreno- My beginning as an artist started as a mural painter at the Guadalupe Center when I was a kid. As my interest in art progressed, my main focus was portrait painting. Mostly self-taught, in the ‘90’s, I decided to become a caricature artist and worked in Las Vegas for several years before coming back to Kansas City and working at Union Station and Crown Center.
Twelve years ago I started visiting the Children’s Mercy hospital to volunteer with the sketches for patients. Children’s Mercy Hospital has a huge volunteer base and a talented team department. One day a week I visit the children with art supplies and draw caricatures and portraits for them to alleviate some of the stress and discomfort of being hospitalized.

“I’ve been commissioned by the Guadalupe Center to design, create, and paint memorial murals of Gilbert Guerrero and Tony Aguirre to honor their contributions to their beloved Westside community.”
