On Monday, June 27, the Mexican immigrant community from Philadelphia and the surrounding area, including New Jersey, held a solidarity vigil and cultural blockade of the Mexican consulate in Center City Philadelphia to protest the repression and police murders of teachers and their supporters in Oaxaca. The protest, which occurred in a rainstorm, was from 8 pm until 2 am, with several hundred participating over the course of the evening.

Participants were mainly working class immigrant families and their supporters, including rank and file Philadelphia school teachers. There were speeches, poetry, musical groups and the Danza Azteca, folkloric dance group. All present were unified in their opposition to the repression and calling for the downfall of the narco government of President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The New York Times Is Wrong: Trans Kids Need Support, Not “Gender Skepticism”

While state legislatures across the country have launched an unprecedented attack on trans youth, the New York Times saw fit to publish a pair of articles calling on liberals to make space for “gender skeptical” ideas among parents. They are wrong. Trans kids need more support, not gender skepticism.
