Lee Fang | theintercept.com | 2019-11-12
In October, documents surfaced that appeared to contradict a key story told by Sen. Elizabeth Warren on the campaign trail. In her telling, Warren's "dream job" as a public school teacher ended in 1971 when the school principal noticed she was "visibly pregnant," a form of employment discrimination that was legal and common during that era. On October 7, a conservative website presented archived documents that appeared to challenge that narrative, including the minutes of a meeting in which the school board had voted to extend Warren's tenure and another in which the board notes that Warren herself resigned from…

Remembering the 1968 Orangeburg Massacre When Police Shot Dead Three Unarmed Black Students
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-11-08
The 1968 Orangeburg massacre is one of the most violent and least remembered events of the civil rights movement.

After days of escalating tensions, students started a bonfire and held a vigil on the campus to protest. Dozens of police arrived on the scene, and state troopers fired live ammunition into the crowd. When the shooting stopped, three students were dead and 28 wounded.

Algerian Protesters Are Still in the Streets, Months After Pushing Out Longtime President Bouteflika
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-11-07

Interim President Abdelkader Bensalah announced the country will hold a presiden…
