Patricia Soto's insight:

“Lo más poderoso que puede hacer una mujer es vivir su vida en la forma que quiere, sin permitir que los obstáculos la detengan. Siento que en lugar de escribir sobre acoso sexual o protestar contra el acoso sexual, simplemente necesitamos continuar con nuestras vidas”, dijo Hebba Afify, periodista egipcia, de 25 años, en entrevista. “No dejar que esto te detenga envía un mensaje muy poderoso y es una forma muy efectiva de luchar contra esta epidemia”, agregó.

MildGreen Initiative's curator insight, October 30, 2013 8:25 PM

Most drugs? The drug of choice for many, 4:5 in the childbearing age group in Christchurch, is simply cannabis. Would/should we be so lucky, the alcohol related harm it displaces suggests consumption should be subsidized for its economic return as well as its health dividend. Such that, truth and evidence exonerates the plant. What is known is that the exacting of this law takes a terrible toll. The contribution to crime and dysfunction has no relationship to the pharmacology of cannabis, rather a continuing dependence on prohibitions deviency amplification in a unitary and increasingly militarised police response "to druggies" It becomes churn, not muster. The worst of it is not just its ageist, racist and sexist application where the rendering is lauded by actors paid to advance a mission impossible, reeking of vested interest. The crucial failure is that it has never worked, will never work and has become the logical equivalent to bombing our own cities to win a war.

Immigration Reform Not Dead Yet

Immigration Reform Not Dead Yet | immigration | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON -- Immigration reform advocates said they're annoyed at the glut of news articles in the past week suggesting comprehensive reform is dead. They insist reform can still happen in the House, and they'll fight until it does.

Via Ramy Jabbar رامي
Patricia Soto's insight:

"We are in 30 days of sustained action and escalation across the country. We are mobilizing in D.C. We're keeping the issue alive. So I wouldn't want us to prematurely declare this issue dead, because our community and our movement still has a lot of fight left this year."
