    Unions threaten work stoppages amid calls for racial justice

    Ahead of Labor Day, unions representing millions across several working-class sectors are threatening to authorize work stoppages in support of the Black Lives Matter movement amid calls for concrete measures that address racial injustice. In a statement first shared with The Associated Press, labor leaders who represent teachers, autoworkers, truck drivers and clerical staff, among others, signaled a willingness Friday to escalate protest tactics to force local and federal lawmakers to take action on policing reform and systemic racism. They said the walkouts, if they were to move forward with them, would last for as long as needed. “The status ...

    Portland protests reach 100 consecutive days

    As unrest continues in Portland amid 100 straight days of protests, authorities released additional court documents late Friday detailing the moments before the slaying of a right-wing protester last weekend. The documents included shots of security footage that showed the suspect, Michael Forest Reinoehl, ducked into a parking garage and reached toward a pocket or pouch at his waist before emerging to follow the victim, Patriot Prayer supporter Aaron “Jay” Danielson.

    D.C. police shooting of Deon Kay spurs calls for change at protests, vigil Saturday

    Protests continued in the nation’s capital Saturday for Deon Kay, a young Black man fatally shot by D.C. police this past week after officers saw a gun in his hand during a police chase. Roughly 50 people gathered outside the 7th District police station in Southeast Washington in the early afternoon, chanting the name of the 18-year-old and demanding justice. Later, family and friends gathered near Kay’s home for a vigil to honor his life.

    Summer of protest: Chance for change, but obstacles exposed

    Memorial Day brought the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, prompting hundreds of thousands of Americans to take to the streets in protest. President Donald Trump called Floyd’s death a “disgrace” and momentum built around policing reform. But by Labor Day, the prospects for federal legislation have evaporated. And Trump is seeking to leverage the violence that has erupted around some of the protests to scare white, suburban voters and encourage them to back his reelection campaign. The three-month stretch between the symbolic kickoff and close of America’s summer has both galvanized broad public support for ...

    Watch: Donald Trump tours damage in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following riots

    President Donald Trump is diving into the latest eruption in the nation’s reckoning over racial injustice with a trip Tuesday to Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the objections of local leaders. The city has been riven by protests since the Aug. 23 shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man hit seven times in the back by police as he was getting into a car while they were trying to arrest him. On the eve of his visit, Trump defended a teenage supporter accused of fatally shooting two men at a demonstration in Kenosha last week and accused Democrat Joe Biden of siding ...
