Kavita Nandini Ramdas: "How much more hatred and violence can the Indian State perpetuate in Kashmir? How many children must lose their sight or their lives in the quest to "dominate"? How many innocent civilians will become victims of military violence? How many will be humiliated in their daily lives as they are stopped at #checkpoints and tied to jeeps to teach others a lesson? How ironic that India, which once stood proud as a supporter of the #Palestinian cause for statehood and self-determination, now uses #Mossad to train "anti-terrorism" forces to quell Kashmiri resistance to...

Every Kenyan land saga is a ready-made telenovela. I mean - cement-sealed graves?

He then fled to Europe with his wife Gladys Luhanga, a retired Kileleshwa Primary school teacher, leaving behind a trail of cases and frustrated beach plot owners."

Today in gaytriarchy

Today in gaytriarchy. Don't let the rainbow diversity optics fool you. Leo Varadkar is a horrific right-wing misogynist. In a public interview, he likened desperate Irish women and girls being forced to travel to the UK for abortions to Irish men going to Amsterdam as sex tourists.Thanks for sharing, Karthick Ramakrishnan

Breaking: white terror is bad for business."Container trucks were backed up all around the port and on Interstate 880. ( ) An unspecified number of nooses have been discovered at the terminal in recent weeks...on a fence, the ground, and on trucks.“We believe it’s a bonafide health and safety issue because of the history behind the noose and what it means for black people in America. This is a dangerous occupation already.”Thanks for sharing, Rachel Lederman

"look at how many times we read or hear reports that the United States has bombed a wedding party or a funeral. And there is never a description of, well, who was the bride, who was the groom, you know, who were the people that were killed, and what were their dreams. It’s unfathomable to me that if we had a wedding party in the United States that was somehow bombed in a terrorist incident, that we wouldn’t know the names of every single person who was killed... where the people were going to go on their honeymoon...what the bride looked like when she was preparing for it."

Five words that Jamaica Kincaid spoke, in Stockholm Central Library, at the inaugural WALTIC in 2008, upended the foundations of my being. That's not hyperbole. For those five words, and all the others, I am eternally in her debt. Happy birthday, Professor Kincaid. Thank you for speaking, and writing, to free us all.Thanks for sharing, Sarah Caterpillarwings Godsell

On Kushner/Russia, I've been reading and connecting the dots around "Russia's largest oil deal ever" in December and possible undisclosed sanctions quid-pro-quo corruption. Follow the money, the oil, and Kushner's spy link to the Kremlin. [With some help, I think I have a connection between the alleged MI6 dossier's "19% stake" promised during the campaign, the Dec. deal for 19%, and potentially how it is getting transfered through shell companies and the Caymans to... whom?] A timeline:
