    Young survivors of Wednesday's school shooting in Florida have announced a national march on Washington to demand political action on gun control. Student organisers told US media that they were determined to make Wednesday's shooting a turning point in the national gun debate. The attack, which left 17 students and staff members dead, was the deadliest US school shooting since 2012. Yesterday protestors chanted "shame on you" to US lawmakers and the president. Mr Trump said last year he would "never" infringe on the right to keep arms - a long-running and contested debate within the US. In his first...

    "Liberals have already ruined Hollywood and the music industry for millions of Americans by conflating politics and entertainment … but zoos? The Cincinnati Zoo ran afoul of quite a few people Saturday when it picked up on a #WomensMarch2018 poster showing a picture of the zoo’s baby hippo, Fiona, with the words “Fiona Is Female.”

    WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Tens of thousands of nationalists marched in a demonstration organized by far-right groups in Warsaw Saturday, as Poles celebrated their country's Independence Day. The far-right march was one of many events marking Poland's rebirth as a nation in 1918 after being wiped off the map for 123 years. Earlier in the day, President Andrzej Duda presided over state ceremonies also attended by European Union president Donald Tusk, a former Polish prime minister. But the march has become the largest Independence Day event in recent years, overshadowing official state observances and other patriotic events. Some participants expressed...

    A short video showing the whole crowd of the Polish Independence March of 2017, November 11! This is where it began and you can see more and more people adding to it. The Washington Post claimed 60,000, but I strongly suspect a lot more based on the photos and video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RELTOCqUCrs

    WASHINGTON — On the first crisp fall day in Washington, thousands of anti-racism marchers proved that the capital’s summer of protests had not yet come to a close. Two separate rallies — the March for Racial Justice and the March for Black Women — converged in Lincoln Park, a picnic-and-birthday-party plot nestled in the heart of the gentrified eastern part of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. They marched in front of the Justice Department before descending on the National Mall to denounce institutionalized racism.

    The March to DC from Charlottesville, Va., started with nearly 200 marchers Monday, but by Tuesday morning there were only 35 marchers. “Over 200 people came together today to take a stand against bigotry and hate,” march organizers said on Twitter. “We’re marching from #Cville2DC. Join us: cville2dc.us.” The overnight rains were enough to keep all but “about 35” from marching Monday morning, the day after the pep talk when police escorted the group from Emancipation Park downtown Sunday. “We have started the day!” the group tweeted shortly after 10:00am. “We have about 35 folks marching against white supremacy.” Despite...

    "We marched for justice, we marched for the rights of the oppressed. We marched for the MPs in jail. We marched for the arrested journalists. We marched for the university academics dismissed from their jobs," said Kilicdaroglu. "We marched because the judiciary is under a political monopoly," he added. "We want the return of powers grabbed from the parliament," said Kilicdaroglu. "Who dares turn this country -- which is like heaven -- into a hell!" he added.

    Turkey's main opposition leader told a huge protest rally on Sunday that the country was living under dictatorship and pledged to keep challenging the crackdown launched by the authorities after last year's failed military coup. Addressing hundreds of thousands of people waving Turkish flags and banners demanding justice, Kemal Kilicdaroglu said his 25-day march from Ankara to Istanbul - culminating in Sunday's rally in Istanbul - was the first stage of a long campaign. "We will be breaking down the walls of fear," he told the crowd who gathered to welcome him at the end of his 425 km (265...

    Justice Kılıçdaroğlu made call of 10 points to AKP: 1- 249 people lost their lives yet the political pillar of the attempted coup is not known. Reveal the politicians involved in the coup. 2- The coup attempt was used as pretext for government's own coup. End emergency rule immediately, restore rule of law in int'l standards. 3- Putting justice system under the control of political order is treason to democracy. Apply fair trial, independent and objective justice. 4- People affected by the emergency rule after the coup are denied their natural rights. End denial of access to social and...

    Turksih President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday accused the country’s main opposition party of siding with terrorism, as a three-week “march for justice” led by its chief neared its ending point of Istanbul... “If you start protests to protect terrorists and those who support terrorism — when it did not occur to you to take part in anti-terror demonstrations — then you cannot convince anyone that your objective is justice,” Erdogan said... he said the road taken by Kilicdaroglu was “the way to Qandil and Pennsylvania”.

  • Germany: 10,000 expected at Muslim anti-terror march, 1,000 show up

    And that number includes many non-Muslims. In this case, many Muslims didn’t show up because Muslim organizations refused to endorse the march, due to the involvement of the German Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Sunni Muslims generally consider Ahmadiyyas as heretics or apostates. But this is not the first time that attendance at a Muslim rally against terrorism has been decidedly underwhelming. In July 2016, a much smaller than anticipated crowd showed up at a Muslims Against ISIS rally in Washington, D.C. There are thousands of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, but only 100 showed up for a rally against ISIS and “Islamophobia”...

    The LGBTQ+ Equality March has little to no basis in reality. Another week, another protest against the president. Russian hookers and pathetic attempts at infrastructure week aside, the never-ending cavalcade of self-aggrandizement has to be the most annoying feature of Trump’s America...  But the upcoming LGBTQ+ Equality March has little to no basis in reality. At the beginning of the century, Hillary Clinton was proudly declaring that marriage is between a man and a woman on the Senate floor while Barack Obama was doing so in the pages of The Audacity of Hope. Donald Trump did the same in a...

    The first meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will reportedly take place in April in Florida. Observers have already begun to guess what issues will be put on the agenda at this two-day summit. North Korea, territorial disputes in the South China Sea, and trade imbalance between the world’s two biggest economies are all thorny issues to deal with at any time, let alone during the great uncertainty created by the Trump administration. It’s not easy to forget the strong criticism Trump had for China during his campaign. He accused China of manipulating its currency...
