  5. "

    We waste about one third of all the food produced in the world. Bees are dying, monocultures are dominating agriculture, knowledge gets lost, many people eat alone and don’t know how to cook any more. Kids don’t see food growing any more. Our supply of phosphates - an essential ingredient for artificial fertilisers - is running out and without it we might not be able to feed the growing world population. Chicken in intensive farms get more antibiotics than needy children in developing countries. Oceans are damaged, fresh water supplies are getting short, oil is running out.

    Fortunately we also see a big group of young people getting into action and trying to find different ways to change the food chain and to change our perception to food. I could even say that there might be a food revolution coming up. And we need one.

    Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.

    Anti-Brazil World Cup Art

    As the 2014 Brazil World Cup approaches, the walls of that country are speaking for many who say “Nao vai ter Copa,” or “There will be no World Cup.” At least not one without the protest of thousands who disagree with FIFA and the Brazilian government spending billions on new stadiums while millions continue to live without their basic needs met.

    These pieces of art are a powerful reminder to us all that there is a whole other world, and other type of cup, at play in Brazil that doesn’t involve a ball and gold trophy. And it’s definitely the one playing out in the favelas that matters most!

    Just last month June 29th 2013, Gabriella Calhoun would be beaten unconscious by police. Gabby is an honor student at Wiley College. She finished high school a year early and went to college a year before the rest of her cohort. After a party on a nice summer night Gabriella decided to head to Denny’s with Friends to get something to eat. While sitting at her table inside Denny’s a fight broke out outside between two girls who were unrelated to her party.

    The police were called, Gabriella’s table had just ordered their drinks. The officers arrived and broke up the fight. They ended up macing one of the girls fighting. They then allowed the girls to go inside Denny’s to “Clean themselves up” meanwhile the officers entered Denny’s and asked a person (Black Male) from Gabriella’s party did they have anything to do with it. He told the officers "No we were not involved". The officers went back outside, then the two girls who were allowed to “Clean themselves up” saw each other inside Denny’s and began fighting again…

    Officers rushed back inside Denny’s to break up the fight again, after dismantling the girls fighting they then approached the same person from Gabriella’s Party (Black Male) and commanded him to come outside. 
    Gabriella shocked and outraged at what was going on follows her friend outside and grabs his side…

    From behind an officer grabs Gabriella by her neck and arm. Gabriella shocked and scared reacted by trying to pull away because she could not see who was grabbing her. According to witnesses after attempting to pull away Gabriella was then struck by the officer with a nightstick and knocked unconscious. 

    After regaining consciousness Gabby stated: “I awoke spitting my teeth out on the ground…. When I came to, the officer begin to choke me again. When I was finally able to talk, I asked the officer to please let me go because I have asthma, but she [the officer], said, ‘I don’t care if you have asthma. You were hitting my officer.’”


    “Afterward, the officer kept saying over and over again, ‘how was your party’ as she held my face to the ground.”

    The officer (female cop) then lifted the petite honor student off of the ground, at which her breasts were exposed because the tube top shirt she was wearing had rolled down…

    Gabriella was then sent to the precinct where she was booked on one charge of felony aggravated battery and two misdemeanors for resisting arrest.”


    Just wanted to spread awareness on the situation the incident happened in Bloomington, IL it is said that Jesse Jackson is now in the process of seeking justice for the case. One of the main contributors to this information was writer Yolanda Spivey.

    The brutal gang-rape and murder of two teenage cousins in India last week has sparked a new wave of protests across the country as sexual violence and the government’s response returns to the spotlight.

    The two girls, who went missing last Tuesday night after leaving their home in search of a place to find a place to relieve themselves, were found raped and hung from a mango tree in their village the following morning. The father of one of the victims reported the girls missing to authorities, but said it took more than 12 hours for police to begin their effort to find them — by then it was too late. Four suspects have since been arrested, two of whom are police officers.

    This weekend hundreds nationwide protested the murders demanding immediate repercussions and a conscious effort by authorities to end the ongoing epidemic. In Lucknow, capital of the state where the girls were raped, hundreds of women protesting outside the office of Uttar Pradesh state chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday were met with water cannons from police attempting to disperse the demonstration. In Allahabad, women from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) burned an effigy of Yadav during their protests on Saturday. During a press conference last Friday, Yadav mocked journalists who voiced their concerns about the case on the same day his government fired the two officers who failed to help find the missing girls.

    The cousins’ story depicts a gruesome reality in India where violence against women has become a commonality and lackluster action from authorities has been a familiar response. According to a United Nations-backed group’s 2012 report in India “every 60 minutes two women are raped, and every six hours a young married woman is found beaten to death, burnt or driven to suicide.” Despite that, a culture where police officers tell reporters “If you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it” remains prevalent in India.

    Despite public outcry which began following the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi in late December 2012, sexual violence in India has yet to curb. The Indian government recently passed legislation doubling prison sentences for rapist and criminalizing voyeurism, stalking and human trafficking in response, but last week’s attack highlights the fact that sexual violence is still prevalent in India.
