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

voice in decisions that affect our work.”

Fonda for Fire Drill Fridays [firstname.lastname@example.org] is very upset with Joe
Manchin and Chuck Schumer for cutting a very dirty deal in the Inflation
Reduction Act. There is a lot in this bill that shows us the fossil fuel
industry still has a stranglehold in Congress. The Dirty Deal would fast track
oil and gas projects that our planet cannot afford. However, we have a
real shot at stopping this Dirty Deal. Our members of Congress work for us and
they don’t owe Senator Manchin ANYTHING. They owe us clean air and a livable planet. Here’s
how YOU can hold their feet to the fire: Call 1-888-593-5407 to tell your
representative to vocally oppose Manchin’s Dirty Deal that fast tracks oil and
gas projects across America. And then visit
firedrillfridays.com/takeaction to sign up to drop-by in person to deliver a
message to your representative: https://firedrillfridays.org/take-action/?emci=2bb72f29-fe2a-ed11-ae83-281878b83d8a&emdi=5c37e830-fe2a-ed11-ae83-281878b83d8a&ceid=1705696.
