    Russian forces have seized 14 tonnes of supplies destined for the besieged city of Mariupol, where thousands of desperate Ukrainians are dangerously low on food, water and other vital supplies. A group of 45 buses, travelling with the Red Cross convoy carrying aid to the city, was stopped in the town of Berdyansk in Russian-held territory. Vladimir Putin's troops looted the supplies being carried by the buses, reports said. The Russian intervention came despite Moscow agreeing to a ceasefire from 10am local time yesterday to open a humanitarian corridor. The buses were to be used to evacuate citizens from the city which has been all-but razed by Russian shelling.  Around of 15 of the buses were able to return to Zaporizhzhia, found 120 miles north-west of Mariupol, with some civilians on-board. It was unclear whether the remaining 30 would be allowed to proceed. Few humanitarian buses have managed to get people out of the city, but many have escaped in their cars – or even on foot – often under fire. The Ukrainian government said only 631 people were able to...

    According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Ventilation Shut Down (VSD) and VSD Plus have “come under greater scrutiny in the past year.” VSD and VSD Plus are methods for killing pigs and chickens in mass quantities. VSD involves “closing the facility, shutting inlets, and turning off the fans associated with the ventilation system.”  VSD Plus “incorporates components such as heat, humidity, and carbon dioxide, in addition to shutting down the ventilation system.”  Essentially, VSD slowly suffocates animals; VSD Plus suffocates them and bakes them alive. Since Covid-19, meat processing plants have experienced employee shortages and diminished processing capacity.   As a result, more facilities than ever are relying on VSD or VSD Plus to kill animals.  And although many vets oppose VSD and VSD Plus, the AVMA enables this practice by listing VSD Plus as “permitted in constrained circumstances.” Given recent scrutiny, an AVMA expert panel is giving these practices “further consideration.”  While the AVMA reconsiders its official stance, sign this petition urging the organization to adopt a “not recommended” standard.

    Former New Orleans Saints defensive end Glenn Foster Jr. has died in custody two days after his arrest in Alabama. Foster, 31, was involved in a high-speed chase with police which ended in a crash and a short stint in jail during which he was unable to receive medical help, his family says. 'We asked them for him to have medical treatment and they denied him for two days,' his mother, Sabrina Foster, told the Daily Beast. 'I told them he had not eaten or [had] water and his organs could shut down, and they didn't seem concerned,' she claimed, noting that her son had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The former defensive lineman had been taken into custody early Saturday morning  after driving 92mph in a 45mph zone and engaging police in a high-speed chase.

    A New York City activist has become an internet star by riffling through chain stores' trash to shame them for throwing away useable food, medical supplies, designer clothes and furniture. Anna Sacks - who goes by the name 'thetrashwalker' on Instagram and TikTok - has been recording her 'trash walks,' where she roams Manhattan's streets and sifts through garbage bags, since 2018.    Some of the videos show mountains of garbage bags full of unopened food and sealed disposable products from places like Party City that can still be eaten or used.  Other videos - like the one she posted March from outside of a CVS - show how companies purposefully rip the packages of edible food, hygiene products like tampons, medical supplies and an assortment of personal care like hairbrushes and dump them out before throwing them away.  She has been contacted by other environmentalists with similar aims, and shared how one man even found a live parakeet discarded outside a Petco store in its cage.   Scroll down for video.  Anna Sacks - aka 'thetrashwalker' on Instagram and TikTok -...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Two Mexican ships carrying food, fuel and medical supplies were sailing to Cuba on Tuesday and a third was getting ready to head there Wednesday. The first ship left late Monday loaded with 100,000 barrels of diesel fuel that the Mexican government said would be used to provide power for Cuban hospitals. A second ship operated by the Mexican navy left Tuesday, and the third ship will leave Wednesday. The Foreign Relations Department said those two ships are carrying oxygen tanks, needles and syringes as well as basic food items like powdered milk, cooking oil and beans. The department described the shipments as “humanitarian assistance” to help Cuba weather the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called Cuba an “example of resistance” and proposed that the entire country be declared a World Heritage site. While much of Cuba seems stuck technologically in the middle of the last century, López Obrador did not appear to be speaking ironically when he proposed the world heritage designation, which is usually used by...
    MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Mexican government said Thursday it will send two navy ships to Cuba with food and medical aid. The Foreign Relations Department said the ships will set sail to Cuba on Sunday from the Gulf coast port of Veracruz. It said the ships will carry oxygen tanks, needles and syringes, and basic food items like rice and beans. The department said the aid “is in line with the Mexican government’s policy of international solidarity.” President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has stated his opposition to U.S. sanctions that limit commerce with the island, and said they should be ended. The announcement came on the same day that the U.S. government tightened the sanctions on some Cuban officials after they violently put down rare street protests earlier this month. Thousands of Cubans took to the streets of Havana and other cities across the island earlier this month to protest food shortages and high prices during the coronavirus crisis. The new U.S. sanctions target a Cuban official and a government special brigade the United States...

    Detained immigrants at a Louisiana ICE facility have been made to drink unsafe water, eat moldy food, forced into solitary confinement for weeks and denied medical care in conditions 'tantamount to torture' according to civil rights groups. Solitary confinement at Pine Prairie is not only used as a punitive measure but also to isolate Covid patients, people seeking mental health treatment, and as retaliation for protests, the complaint alleges. The GEO Group, the private prison company that runs the facility, has denied the allegations made in the complaint which was filed on June 21. Detained immigrants at a Louisiana ICE facility have been made to drink unsafe water, eat moldy food, forced into solitary confinement for weeks and denied medical care according civil rights groups. Pictured: Pine Prairie The report states that the inmates with no disciplinary infractions are kept in conditions 'virtually identical' to those in solitary confinement for up to 24 hours a day for weeks at a time without access to medical care.  'This pattern of implementing punitive solitary confinement is abusive, unlawful, and tantamount to torture,'...
    A BBC investigation into unaccompanied minor detention centers in Texas revealed alarming conditions under the Biden Administration. The BBC reports migrant children are exposed to disease, dangerous food, and sexual abuse while in confinement. As the flood of unaccompanied migrant children mounted through the spring, the Biden Administration quickly put up detention centers in multiple locations. The BBC reports the migrant children, mostly from Central America, face “heartbreaking” living conditions.  Findings by the BBC from interviews with staff and migrant children revealed allegations of sexual abuse, COVID-19 and lice outbreaks, long waits for medical attention, a lack of clean clothes, and children served under-cooked meats. Staff members provided the BBC with leaked photos and video from inside detention centers. This investigation centered on a tented facility erected at Fort Bliss near El Paso, Texas. The facility is the temporary home for more than 2,000 unaccompanied minors who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas. Staff and children told the BBC the facilities served under-cooked meat to hungry children — some of whom became ill after eating. “Sometimes the...
