Facebook is censoring this article tonight, which exposes censorship by Facebook. Whistleblowers at Facebook are revealing the truth:

It is good not to take Facebook too seriously, since it is a crude marketing tool.
More alarming, Facebook is used extensively by the US and governments around the world for tracking human rights activists and the theft of their personal data.
Of course we know now that everyone's data is stolen and stored by the US, UK and other governments.
Tracking your location is just one tool of Facebook that violates privacy.
US agents have remarked about how easy it is to track activists, since they keep checking in at Facebook.
Israeli agents diverted peace activists away from Palestine by tracking them on Facebook and then blocking their air travel.
Besides what you post, each time you log into Facebook, your IP address is recorded. Facebook keeps a permanent record of your locations. (This means they know where you sleep, and who else sleeps there if they log on.)
Further, Facebook has become a garbage dump for 'clickbait.' These fraudulent news websites steal the work of real reporters.
Each time you click on the fraudulent news links, they make money. These profiteers steal the most controversial news in order to grab your attention.
They often use photo collages in an attempt to avoid photo copyright prosecution.
These websites are a form of poverty porn, making a profit from human misery.
Perhaps Facebook's greatest damage is the lure to waste time, precious time.
And there's often no better way to ruin your day than to log onto Facebook.

In Mexico, Tuesday, May 10, is Mother's Day. On that day, mothers from the civil society organization United Families for Our Disappeared of Jalisco will join mothers from across the country in a national demonstration in Mexico City demanding governmental action in locating their missing loved ones and calling for the passage of a national law on forced disappearance, which has been hamstrung in the Mexican Senate.

For the fifth year in a row, relatives of the disappeared will gather on the morning of May 10 at Mexico City's Monument of the Mother united by the slogan "Mothers searching for their sons and daughters, truth and justice."

Kern Co. Residents Conduct Capitol Sit-In to Protest Central Valley Oil Drilling

Governor Jerry Brown has become infamous for spouting off about "climate change" and "green energy" at international climate conferences as he promotes environmentally destructive policies, including fracking,  pollution trading and R.E.D.D. and the salmon-killing Delta Tunnels, back at home. 


Three protesters from Kern County are apparently tired of Governor Brown's green rhetoric and pro-Big Oil actions and are currently conducting a sit-in outside of Governor Jerry Brown's offices in the State Capitol as part of "Break Free," a global wave of actions to keep fossil fuels in the ground. 
Farmers, nurses, and environmental justice activists alike traveled from California's Central Valley to participate in this peaceful, nonviolent protest, according to a joint news release from the Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment (CRPE) and 350.org.
