Malala Responds To Trump’s Immigrant Ban With Heart-Wrenching Post

In uncertain times such as these, people are turning to the political and social figures they admire most and one of those figures is Malala Yousafzai, a teenager who has strongly advocated for education for girls in her native country, Pakistan. She has turned her voice into a global movement and supported education for women in all countries, and as a result was shot in the face by the Taliban when she was just 15 years old.

For the Women’s March in Washington D.C., over 200,000 people have RSVP’d to participate in the march and more than 1,200 bus permits were requested for parking at RFK Stadium—which is more than 6 times the amount of requests for Inauguration Day.

Since that time, the administration has sunk to new lows in its zeal to finish the deal on the TPP, even allowing one of its members to get away with forced slavery & other human rights violations.

Media Bias: Mainstream Media Fails to Report on Muslim March Against ISIS

Media Bias: Mainstream Media Fails to Report on Muslim March Against ISIS

…Sanders himself has called out mainstream corporate media for its bias, and many award-winning journalists have done the same, illustrating how mainstream media is plagued by corporate, intelligence, political, and financial interests. Some of these interests are furthered through pushing the idea that the world faces a great threat, that we are in danger, and must accordingly give more money to the department of defence and more of our personal freedoms to the government; national security must be heightened in order to combat ‘terrorism.’ We have been seeing this with ISIS a lot lately, and with terrorism in general. Mainstream media ties terrorism to the Muslim faith when they have nothing to do with one another, and unfortunately, this propaganda campaign has been successful in its efforts, brainwashing many people, especially in the United States, into fearing Muslims.

The White Man in That Photo

Sometimes photographs deceive. Take this one, for example. It represents John Carlos and Tommie Smith’s rebellious gesture the day they won medals for the 200 meters at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, and it certainly deceived me for a long time.

The Current Militarization of America’s Public Schools

Thanks to a combination of media hype, political pandering and financial incentives, the use of armed police officers to patrol school hallways has risen dramatically in the years since the Columbine school shooting (nearly 20,000 by 2003). Funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, these school resource officers (SROs) have become de facto wardens in elementary, middle, and high schools, doling out their own brand of justice to the so-called ‘criminals’ in their midst with the help of tasers, pepper spray, batons and brute force.

The Bulldozing of Palestinian Homes: Cruelty is NOT a Human Right

Police, and sometimes the military, arrive at dawn while families are sleeping. They surround the house and call for the family to come outside. If the family resists, they will be forcefully removed and the bulldozers will begin their tragic task of destruction. Only sometimes are families allowed to take some of their possessions with them.
