Our proposed 41-unit ‘micro-unit’ project near the intersection of 36th & Bryant was unanimously approved tonight by the city Planning Commission. Our team is grateful for the opportunity to bring our vision to this transit corridor. Thanks to our partners at Collage Architects and Civil Site Group for their great work!
On April 12, 2018, in the chambers of the #Louisiana State House of Representatives, Rep. Major Thibaut Jr. stepped up to the microphone before the Speaker to introduce House Bill 727. According to his testimony, it aimed primarily to add "#pipelines " to the list of what the state considers "critical infrastructure." It would impose severe penalties on peaceful protesters engaged in nonviolent civil #disobedience actions at sites considered "critical infrastructure", simply planning to take such an action, considered "#conspiracy " by HB 727, could be punishable by fees of up to $10,000 and #prison sentences as long as 20 years. Under the bill as written, simply discussing a possible trespass action could result in prison sentences of five years and fines up to $10,000.
Louisiana joined the growing number of states across the nation with similar "critical infrastructure" bills
The first appeared in #Oklahoma in May 2017. Rep. Mark McBride said it was an attempt to keep Oklahoma from paying costs related to any #DiamondPipelineprotests . The law beefed up penalties for #protesters who trespassed on property containing a "critical infrastructure facility." The definition of such facilities varies by state but tends to include energy-industry sites like pipelines, #refineries and electrical power facilities.
In #Iowa , Senate Study Bill 3062 penalizes those who'd commit "sabotage" of critical infrastructure facilities with fines of up to $100,000 and 25 years in jail.
March 2018, lawmakers in #Minnesota introduced HF 3693, which would, among other things, criminalize anyone who "recruits, trains, aids, advises, hires, counsels, or conspires with" a trespasser at an infrastructure site.
Oggi sono undici anni
che non vedo
le vostre facce.
Che non sento
più le vostre voci.
Che non ho
più i vostri consigli.
Sono undici anni
che non vi racconto
di me e di quello che
succede intorno a me.
Che mi mancate
come MANCA l' ossigeno stando in apnea.
Che vorrei gridare al mondo
perchè è successo tutto questo.
Sono undici anni che
la mia vita si è stracciata,
ricomposta, poi frantumata,
riparata e poi distrutta
ancora e ancora.
Sono undici anni
che vorrei poter dire NON è vero,
siete solo andati dall' altra parte,
a fare un lungo giro..
si ma poi questo giro
prima o poi
Undici anni sono tanti..
ma a me ne sembrano
Quando hai quasi diciassette anni
non puoi immaginare
che all' improvviso
tutto il mondo ti crollerà addosso,
che dovrai crescere in poche ore,
rimboccarti le maniche e
ANDARE AVANTI con tutto
perchè MAMMA e PAPÀ
sono andati tra le stelle,
come tutti gli angeli più belli,
vengono chiamati sempre troppo presto.
