    In a speech upon receiving Amnesty International's top human rights award Monday night, 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg credited the work of thousands of her fellow youth climate campaigners for heightening global awareness of the existential threat posed by the ecological crisis and the need for bold action.

    "I think there is an awakening going on," Thunberg said during an award ceremony in Washington D.C. "Even though it is slow, the pace is picking up and the debate is shifting. This is thanks to a lot of different reasons, but it is a lot because of countless activists, especially young activists."

    Thunberg and the youth-led Fridays for Future climate movement she inspired were honored with Amnesty's 2019 Ambassador of Conscience Award for their efforts to bring the planetary emergency to the forefront of global attention and force world leaders to act.

    The event came days before millions of people are expected to take part in climate strikes in over 130 countries across the globe on Friday.

    "We, who together are the movement Fridays for Future, we are fighting for our lives," said Thunberg. "But not only that, we are also fighting for our future children and grandchildren, for future generations, for every single living being on earth, whose biosphere we share, whose biosphere we are stealing, whose biosphere we are ruining. We are fighting for everyone."

    "Activism works," Thunberg added. "So, what I'm telling you to do now is to act. Because no one is too small to make a difference. I'm urging all of you to take part in the global climate strikes on September 20th and September 27th."

    Kumi Naidoo, Amnesty's secretary general, said in a statement Tuesday that Thunberg and youth climate leaders around the world have "laid down the challenge" for the rest of humanity.

    "In an apathetic world drifting towards calamity, they have stood up as our collective conscience and said, 'enough is enough,'" said Naidoo. "They have demanded that we stop ignoring the magnitude of the crisis and stop making excuses, and instead start mobilizing."

    "Now it's time for every single one of us to follow them," Naidoo said. "A mass movement is needed if we want to force governments and corporations into long-overdue action."

  • Worship Him September 12 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Psalm 149:4 Listen to today's Devotional

    One of the major problems with our worship is that we evaluate it by asking the wrong question. For example, we might ask someone who’s attended church: “Did you enjoy worship?” But the point of worship is not that we enjoy it, although we certainly should, but that God enjoys it; that He is pleased and honored by it. So a better question would be, “Did God enjoy your worship?”

    In worship, God is the audience, and we are on stage. If our worship is true and God-honoring, He is blessed by every hymn sung, every word proclaimed, every gift given, and every testimony spoken. Worship is all about Him … and all for Him. So let me ask: Does God get pleasure out of the worship you offer Him? https://mailchi.mp/fa07b9149ef1/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-452993?e=9cbe669f39

    Abby Zimet, Further columnist

    Okay so maybe little Donnie can't buy Greenland, the latest shiny object of his cold dark dumb heart's desire, after snickering pols there and in Denmark retorted in no uncertain terms it's “open for business, but not for sale,” and what is this lunatic idiot's problem anyway?

    Still, Twitter had a riotous time with this new diversion from our apocalyptic reality. So many questions, so little time before none of this is even remotely amusing: Will Mexico pay for it? Did Ivanka ask for a Greenland?

    What about helping Flint and Puerto Rico instead? Does he think it's green and ripe for his inevitable golf course?

    Should we rent it first to see if we like it? Maybe see if he can find it on a map before letting him buy it?

    Will he fill it with brown people, sexual assault accusers, Democrats and MSNBC pundits?

    Will our president, that "enormous drooling git," accept this enticing, Nigerian-Prince-flavored offer? "Honored sirs," it read. "I am PRINCE KIELSEN and I am contacting you with exciting opportunity. I recently inherited an island but need a small amount of cash. Send a money order for $600,000,000 to my account and I will give you “Greenland.”

    Tough call, but faithful Twitter was there with advice: "Make sure you get the money up front." Also, "He'll just smother it in gold leaf and try to flip it to Norway," "There goes infrastructure week," and, "Let us know when you will be free to pick up the Internet you have just won."

    The New Yorker's Andy Borowitz was right behind them. After the Danish government reiterated that Greenland is not for sale, he reports, they noted "during the Trump regime pretty much everything in the United States, including its government, has most definitely been for sale.”

    Thus did Denmark then offer to purchase the United States "in its entirety, with the exception of its government." If its bid is accepted, Denmark adds, it has big plans: “We believe that by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation.”

    Denmark! Free college tuition, healthcare, child care. Paid vacation and parental leave. Living wage, progressive taxation, the blissful characteristic hygge making all things cozy. "Sold!" proclaimed one eager patriot. "When can we expect delivery?"

    From a weary, battered populace mired in our national nightmare, the grateful consensus burst forth: "Thank God."

  • 'We Will Have Her Back': Jewish Constituents Rally Behind Rashida Tlaib Amid Trump Attacks
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/17/we-will-have-her-back-jewish-constituents-rally-behind-rashida-tlaib-amid-trump
    Jake Johnson, staff writer

    Dozens of Rep. Rashida Tlaib's Jewish constituents rallied in Detroit Friday evening during Shabbat to show solidarity with their congresswoman as she faces attacks from President Donald Trump over her refusal to visit Israel under the Netanyahu government's restrictive conditions.

    Beth Miller, government affairs manager for Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) Action, which organized the event, applauded Tlaib's courage and said it is "heartbreaking that Rashida had to spend this evening with us instead of her beloved family."

    "And it's enraging that the Israeli government would hold a member of Congress's family hostage unless she agrees to censor herself," said Miller. "For as long as it's existed, the Israeli government has forced these kinds of heart wrenching and impossible choices on Palestinians. It's time for all of us to insist our elected officials hold Israel accountable."

    Tlaib, who attended the rally Friday night, fought back tears as she thanked her constituents for their support.

    "I can't wait to show my grandmother how I was supported by all of you—it would bring her so much joy," said Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman ever elected to Congress. "Thank you for hearing me, thank you for seeing me, thank you for loving me. And thank you for allowing me to be not just your congresswoman, but also a granddaughter of a grandmother living under occupation."

    The rally came as Trump launched a dehumanizing Twitter attack against Tlaib and her 90-year-old grandmother and accused the Michigan congresswoman of orchestrating a "setup" by refusing to visit Israel.

    The Israeli government, with the enthusiastic support of Trump, initially barred both Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from entering the country. After backlash, Israel decided to grant Tlaib permission to visit her grandmother, but the Michigan Democrat ultimately refused to accept the condition that she refrain from expressing support for boycott activities.

    "Being silent and not condemning the human rights violations of the Israeli government is a disservice to all who live there, including my incredibly strong and loving grandmother," Tlaib said in a statement. "This type of oppression is painful for all humanity, but it is especially painful for me personally every time I hear my loving family members cry out for the freedom to live and the right to feel human."

    Tlaib's Jewish constituents on Friday vowed to continue supporting their congresswoman as she speaks out against the oppression of Palestinians.

    "We know what Rashida's values are, because she has served our community so well for years—during her three terms in the Michigan legislature and now in Congress," said JVP supporter Barbara Harvey. "This community remembers her love for all of us and her passionate commitment to us and to justice for all. We will have her back as long as she is willing to serve."
