Anyone who registers for the service can add an event. An internal team at the ACLU then reviews whats being scheduled; it will reject anything with offensive language or partisanship. Not everything needs to be a direct action. Our goal is that the platform be used as a tool for all grassroots groups and actions that work toward resisting the Trump administrations attacks on our civil liberties, notes a spokesman in an email to Fast Company . That includes more mundane coffee-talk style meet-ups for activists to mingle and learn more. [Photos: courtesy ACLU] At its most basic, this is an expedient way to organize the kind of protest that happened in Nashville. (The ACLUs local affiliate planned that one.) But the ACLU broader plan is a bit more complicated. During the People Power launch at the University of Miamis Watsco Center, which was viewed by more than 1 million people and included a celebrity endorsement from Padma Lakshmi, Shakir debuted the Freedom Cities campaign.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday needled Chris Christie as he praised the New Jersey governor for his early endorsement, joking that Christie's support was less than whole-hearted. Trump, who sat next to Christie at the meeting in the White House about battling opioid addiction, gave credit to the governor for being “an immediate endorser, once he got out of the race.” But then he cracked, “He liked himself more than he liked me, but other than that. “Still do, sir, but that’s all right,” Christie quipped in response. “Other than that, he’s been great,” Trump continued to some laughter. “And he’s a very effective guy, I will tell you. To have you working on this.” Trump also praised Christie, who has joined the White House effort to address the opioid crisis, for a standout moment during the Republican primary campaign, when the governor gave a well-received speech about drug addiction.

Michael Strahan continues to clash with his Good Morning America co-workers, as fellow anchors of the ABC morning show are fed up with Strahan receiving preferential treatment. They roll out the carpet for [Strahan] while seasoned talent is treated like dirt, a source told Page Six . He's been given a lot of opportunity, flexibility, when the others who have been working there longer don't get that kind of treatment. Although Strahan was forced to drop his endorsement deals when he joined the show, he worked out a deal that allows him to continue working at Fox NFL Sunday and host ABC's $100,000 Pyramid. PHOTOS: Kelly Betrayed Again! Michael LeavesLiveTo Co-Host GMA Already Pop anchor Lara Spencer is especially fed up with Strahan , as a source claims she feels her role has been minimized.

Iran believes that there are fundamental problems in the legitimacy of appointing a rapporteur with so weak a background and with so many questions and doubts about her conduct, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Friday. He described the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution to renew the mandate as a politically-motivated, selective and spiteful move by a few countries abusing UN mechanisms. The council extended the mandate of the special rapporteur on Iran for the seventh consecutive year despite the lack of endorsement by the majority of member states and through mere reliance on the vote of a “certain political bloc” and its few allies in the region who are clearly violators of human rights at regional and international levels, Qassemi added.

Scotland's Parliament voted Tuesday to seek a new referendum on independence from Britain, clearing the way for the country's first minister, its top lawmaker, to ask the British government to approve such a vote. The legislature in Edinburgh voted 69-59 to seek Britain's parliamentary endorsement, which is required, for a referendum that First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold within two years — before Britain has completed its departure from the 28-nation European Union. British voters narrowly approved a departure from the EU last year, and London will begin the formal process leading to Britain's exit from the union on Wednesday. Despite the overall vote last year in favor of leaving the EUbased on ballots cast in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Irelandnearly two-thirds of Scottish voters elected to remain in the bloc. Since then, Sturgeon has insisted that independence is the only way for Scotland to maintain its formal EU relationship.
