5] – Here is the Go Fund Me link through which you can
help Adel Al Manthari get the medical attention that he desperately needs: https://gofund.me/1a5fac07. Please contribute as soon as possible because he will not be able to
get treatment until $10,000 is raised.BanKillerDrones.org is
raising funds to help him. WESPAC Foundation is the fiscal agent
for BanKillerDrones.org. In March 2018 Adel Al Manthari was grievously injured in a U.S.
drone attack in Yemen that killed four of his cousins. The five men were
driving to the village of al-Aqla to witness a land transfer. They never made
it. Tens of thousands have been killed and maimed by U.S. drone attacks.
Adel survived, but now his health is in jeopardy because he can’t afford
the medical care he needs.
Library workers are forming a union, Pratt Workers United. We are seeking pay
equity for all, safer working conditions, benefits for part-time workers, and a
voice in decisions that affect our work.”

11] – Usually, the Baltimore Ethical Society,
2521 St. Paul St., Baltimore 21218, meets on Sundays, and generally there is a
speaker and discussion at 10:30 AM. On Sun., Sept. 18, the platform is “Understanding Gun Culture.” In a society with more weapons than people,
it’s clear that the United States has a “gun culture.” Is this enough to
explain the plague of mass shootings, crime-related killings, accidents, and
suicides by bullet? People add various explanations for this pandemic – mental
illness, toxic masculinity, economic desperation, and profiteering by weapon
manufacturers. If we are going to change our culture from one of guns to one of
ethics, we have a lot to learn. Hugh Taft-Morales explores his own efforts to
understand gun culture “from the outside. Hugh Taft-Morales serves as
Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and the Baltimore Ethical Society
and is a member of the Ethical Action Committee of the American Ethical Union
(AEU). Email President@BEMOREthical.org

24] – The Haitian Bridge Alliance
is holding an action in front of the White House to demand justice and

justice after they were chased, threatened, lashed at, and almost trampled by
armed border patrol officers on horseback. One of the participants will
be Ambassador Daniel Foote, Former Special Envoy to Haiti who resigned in
protest of the U.S.’ treatment of Haitian migrants in Del Rio, Texas. Honor
the victims of the border patrol’s cruelty and draw attention to the horrific
treatment of Black asylum seekers and migrants at the border on Mon., Sept. 19
at 10 AM ET. Email Taisha Saintil at email@example.com or call
In September 2021, a photo went viral of Mirard Joseph, a Haitian asylum
seeker who was being chased and lashed at by an armed border patrol officer on
horseback at the border. The image captured international media attention as a
stark callback to the U.S. legacy of slavery and racism. Mr. Joseph was
one of at least 15,000 asylum seekers, overwhelmingly Haitian, held by U.S.
immigration in an encampment at the border in Del Rio, Texas. They were exposed
to verbal threats, intimidation, medical neglect, extreme hunger and thirst,
lack of beds or any sleeping materials, and desert heat. When he was assaulted
by border patrol, Mr. Joseph had left the encampment to get food and water for
his starving family. Most of these 15,000 migrants either fled back to
Mexico out of fear, or were then taken into custody, chained at their wrists,
waist and feet, including pregnant and breast-feeding women, and expelled back
to Haiti under the Title 42 policy without the opportunity to seek asylum
