Capitalists Consolidate Control Over U.S. Farmland

By Ted Kelly 

The amount of farmland in the United States has been in steady decline for most of the 21st century. While roughly 40% of the country’s land area remains devoted to agriculture, 14 million acres of farmland were lost to ecological devastation or development between 2012 and 2017. (American Farmland Trust) At least 2 million additional acres have been lost every year since then. (U.S. Department of Agriculture)

PETITION: Make January 6th “American Democracy Day”

January 6, 2021 was a horrible day in America.

Donald Trump tried to overthrow the democratic process, using fringe citizens, militias, and other rioters.

The day was partially an attempt to take the spotlight away from the then President-Elect, Joseph Biden, and his VP pick, Kamala Harris.

An official day to celebrate democracy, electoral voting, candidate choice, and presidential verification would remind us that January 6th is not to be remembered as a day of riots, insurrection, and lawlessness.

Instead, January 6th will annually be a day of celebrating democracy and the process for which we pick our laws and leaders.
