  • Prominent Pro-LGBTQ Lawyer Kills Himself To Protest Climate Change

    David Buckel, a prominent LGBTQ civil rights attorney, fatally set himself on fire at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York, early Saturday morning. He was 60 years old. In a suicide note left near his body, Buckel said he had used “fossil fuel” to ignite the fire and wanted his death to symbolize what humans are doing to Earth, the New York Daily News reported. Buckel emailed copies of the note to several news organizations, including the New York Times. “Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather,” Buckel wrote in his note, according to the Times’ copy of the note. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result — my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselve...

Wide of news conference 11. SOUNDBITE (English) Barack Obama, President of United States: "No, I'm not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29 year old hacker." 12. Cutaway of media STORYLINE: President Barack Obama on Thursday praised the US Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage as a "victory for American democracy" but clashed with his African host over gay rights in a sign of how far the movement has to go internationally. Obama said recognition of gay unions in the United States should cross state lines and that equal rights should be recognised universally. It was his first chance to expand on his thoughts about the ruling, which was issued Wednesday as he flew to Senegal, one of many African countries that outlaw homosexuality. Senegalese President Macky Sall rebuffed Obama's call for Africans to give gays equal rights under the law. Obama said gay rights didn't come up in their private meeting at the presidential palace, a mansion that looks somewhat similar to the White House. But Obama said he wants to send a message to Africans that while he respects differing personal and religious views on the matter, it's important to have nondiscrimination under the law. "I believe at the root of who we are as a people, as Americans, is the basic precept that we are all equal under the law," he said. A report released Monday by Amnesty International says 38 African countries criminalise homosexuality. Obama also offered prayers for former South African President Nelson Mandela, who is gravely ill, ahead of Obama's planned visit to his country this weekend. Obama said he was inspired to become politically active by Mandela's example in the anti-apartheid movement of being willing to sacrifice his life for a belief in equal treatment. "If and when he (Nelson Mandela) passes from this place, one thing I think we all know is that his legacy is one that will linger on throughout the ages," Obama said. Obama also sought to downplay the international chase for the man he called "a 29-year-old hacker" and lower the temperature of an issue that has raised tensions between the U.S. and uneasy partners Russia and China. Obama said that the damage to U.S. national security has already been done and his top focus now is making sure it can't happen again. Edward Snowden, who is charged with violating American espionage laws, fled Hong Kong over the weekend and flew to Russia. Obama's focus in Senegal is on the modern-day achievements of the former French colony after half a century of independence.

A noted New York City lawyer who made his mark fighting legal battles for gay rights committed suicide Saturday by setting himself on fire in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In a suicide note, David Buckel said he was killing himself to protest climate change. The New York Post reports. A “green” activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights — including in the notorious “Boys Don’t Cry” rape murder case — committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth. David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said. He left the note in a manila envelope marked “To The Police,” recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,” Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times. “My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.” He added, “Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death.” Visitors to the park were horrified when they found his body, and contacted police. “It was just lying there, on its back, knees slightly bent like someone would lie on the sand at the beach,” said Irena Ryjova, 44, a rollerblader who passed by at about 7 a.m., less than an hour after the immolation. “It’s a shock; it’s a shame,” said mom Dana Lall as she shepherded a crowd of Catholic-school kids past the horrific scene, en route to a baseball game. As a senior attorney with Lambda Legal defense, Buckel was a lead lawyer in a 2000 lawsuit on behalf of transgender “Boys Don’t Cry” rape-murder victim Brandon Teena, helping the family recover additional damages from neglectful Nebraska law enforcement. The 1999 movie earned Hilary Swank an Oscar for her portrayal of Teena. “It’s a very important case, not only within Nebraska but nationally,” Buckel had told the Daily Nebraskan newspaper in 2001, ­after helping win an $80,000 judgment. He also fought for the right of gay high school students in Salt Lake City to organize a club, and argued against discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America and the military. “The thoroughness, the detail and the careful reasoning in the opinion means that other courts around the nation will be paying attention,” he said. “The news of David Buckel’s death is heartbreaking,” the group tweeted Saturday night. “This is a tremendous loss for our Lambda Legal family, but also for the entire movement for social justice.” Buckel was also behind a number of cases involving gay rights. In another pivotal case, Buckel won a New Jersey Supreme Court ruling in 2006 acknowledging that gay couples are entitled to the same legal rights and financial benefits as heterosexual married couples. He also fought for the right of gay high-school students in Salt Lake City to organize a club, and argued against discrimination in the Boy Scouts of America and the military. More recently, Buckel worked as an urban gardener and ecologist with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, helping run what he called the largest composting program in the country to use only renewable sources of energy. “There’s no denying that sticking with renewable resources means a lot of elbow grease with pitchforks and shovels,” he wrote in a 2016 article on the Botanic Garden Web site. “But it is incredibly satisfying work.” A 2014 US Department of Agriculture update on efforts by Buckel and others to establish a composting operation at the Brooklyn Navy Yard referred to Buckel as “one of the most experienced community composting experts in New York City.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: quylao0711@gmail.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is not an LGBTQ ally. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, and Amberia Allen, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Join TYT: https://goo.gl/v8E64M "The Justice Department has filed court papers arguing that a major federal civil rights law does not protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, taking a stand against a decision reached under President Barack Obama. The department’s move to insert itself into a federal case in New York was an unusual example of top officials in Washington intervening in court in what is an important but essentially private dispute between a worker and his boss over gay rights issues. “The sole question here is whether, as a matter of law, Title VII reaches sexual orientation discrimination,” the Justice Department said in a friend-of-the-court brief, citing the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which bars discrimination in the workplace based on “race, color, religion, sex or national origin.” “It does not, as has been settled for decades. Any efforts to amend Title VII’s scope should be directed to Congress rather than the courts.””* Read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/27/nyregion/justice-department-gays-workplace.html Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, Amberia Allen Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, Amberia Allen *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

"Michelle Obama confronted a protester at a fundraiser on Tuesday, stepping away from the lectern where she was speaking to denounce the protester's behavior. Obama was midway through a speech at a Democratic party fundraiser at a private Washington home when lesbian activist Ellen Sturtz, 56, interrupted Obama's speech to demand that Barack Obama sign an anti-discrimination executive order."* Ellen Sturtz, a well-known gay rights activist, heckled Michelle Obama at a paid fundraiser.

Gay Marriage: Green Card Interview Issues to Watch Out For – Part 1 -- Immigration Attorney Heather Poole discusses special issues that affect immigration marriage cases for gay (LGBT) couples including state law issues, joint assets, past marriage history, and much more. Share this Video:http://youtu.be/nOGl1hRdxDE Subscribe and Get More Immigration Advice http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=AttorneyHeather Heather L Poole is the Author of “Immigration Attorneys & You: How to Choose Between the Right One & Those You Should Run From”, a nationwide public speaker, published author, and immigration attorney trainer on complex Immigration issues and an expert in Family Immigration Law including I-130s, Family Visas, Marriage Green Cards, Conditional Green Cards, I-751s, Abused Spouse (VAWA), and I-601 Waivers for Crimes, Unlawful Presence (3 year bar, 10 year bar), and Misrepresentation (Lying to Immigration). Gay Marriage Green Card Interview 0:19 The overturn of DOMA created the new option for a same-sex spouse to be able to sponsor their same-sex spouse for a green card. It is how local CIS offices are going to be deciding these cases and how much of each spouse’s history will come to light and what is really fair game for questioning is still unknown. Technically, a gay U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse has the right to now sponsor their spouse for a green card based on gay marriage but this is new territory for CIS officers. There really has not been universal training or sensitivity for these types of cases . . . . 0:57 Typically as part of green card process in marriage cases, CIS will look to the bona fides of the existing marriage and whether it was entered into legally but also look at the couple’s history. But when it comes to gay and lesbian relationships, that can get little tricky. What if either of the spouses were married before but to a heterosexual? How will this affect the green card process for the gay couple? [more in video]. 1:31 Will CIS scrutinize this type of case more because a person is now out as gay? Unfortunately yes in reality. However, this does not mean that you have to show more documentation than someone who is in a heterosexual relationship to prove the bona fides of your current relationship. But know that if there has been a switch between sexual orientations in your past, credibility of your current marriage is at risk. 2:06 In looking into a spouse’s past, CIS could also look at financial records and scrutinize the dates of divorce and remarriage. This becomes even more crucial in explaining what happened and documenting the validity of past relationships as well as current relationship and if there is any appearance of marriage fraud. [See more in video] 2:44 In the green card process, CIS will be concerned about gay couple’s credibility and may consider the prior relationship or the current one to be fraudulent and only entered into for purposes of getting a green card. [More in video. . . ] 3:27 Even for those who have not been married before, proving that the current relationship is real can be difficult, especially if the state where you reside bans gay marriage. Gay couples in the green card process may find it hard to hold the property in both names including bank accounts, health insurance, lease, tax returns if the state does not allow you to do so.

"A noted New York City lawyer who made his mark fighting legal battles for gay rights committed suicide Saturday by setting himself on fire in Prospect Park in Brooklyn. In a suicide note, David Buckel said he was killing himself to protest climate change. The New York Post reports. A “green” activist who was a pioneering lawyer for gay and transgender rights — including in the notorious “Boys Don’t Cry” rape murder case — committed suicide by setting himself on fire Saturday morning in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in a grisly act of protest against the ecological destruction of the Earth. David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said. He left the note in a manila envelope marked “To The Police,” recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene. “Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,” Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times. “My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.” He added, “Honorable purpose in life invites honorable purpose in death.” Visitors to the park were horrified when they found his body, and contacted police. “It was just lying there, on its back, knees slightly bent like someone would lie on the sand at the beach,” said Irena Ryjova, 44, a rollerblader who passed by at about 7 a.m., less than an hour after the immolation. “It’s a shock; it’s a shame,” said mom Dana Lall as she shepherded a crowd of Catholic-school kids past the horrific scene, en route to a baseball game.
