The Trump's family is the most outrageous corrupt criminal family in American history and must be investigated by the DOJ now. Overwhelming evidence is beyond a doubt and the fake right wing media hides it won't report. Ivanka’s Trademark Requests Were Fast-Tracked In China After Trump Was Elected. The Chinese government granted a total of 41 trademarks to Ivanka Trump companies by April of 2019—and the trademarks she applied for after her father became president got approved about 40% faster.
So proud of PAN, partnering with Thousand Currents and Africansinthe Diaspora is hosting this event. Brilliant thinker Mazibuko K.

http://bit.ly/FreeUdoka Udoka, a gay asylum seeker from Nigeria has been caged in Adelanto Detention facility in California since 2016 when he surrendered himself after a traumatic trek through South and Central America. The trauma haunts him in detention where he has been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and has attempted to take his life. Udoka’s deportation could mean a prison sentence or death and his continued detention could worsen his mental health and suicidality. Join us in demanding he be released on parole immediately so he can access desperately needed treatment for his condition. http://bit.ly/FreeUdoka
