Clearly a concerted and comprehensive effort to reform these oppressive blasphemy laws must begin to reform a generation of Pakistanis that marches solely to the beat of a singularly religious drum.

What was once the most beautiful synagogue in Libya's capital city can now be entered only by sneaking through a hole smashed in a back wall, climbing over dusty trash and crossing a stairwell strewn with abandoned shoes to a space occupied by cooing pige

Haitians continue to call for the return of Aristide & an end to the US/UN military occupations. They have resisted the occupation, with UN "peacekeepers" killing many unarmed men, women & children, & 90% of voters boycotted the 2 post-coup fake elections

Hugo Chavez said that Petrocaribe, Venezuela's cut-rate energy program, will forgive Haiti's debt (US$295 million, about 1/3 of Haiti's global foreign debt of US$1 billion). ALBA countries criticised the excessive first world military presence in Haiti.

Haiti is a net product of the colonial, capitalist and imperialist system imposed on the world. Haiti's slavery and subsequent poverty were imposed from abroad. UNICEF has been acting to stop people who are trying to take children from families to adopt.

PETITION: Haiti's airport must be devoted to humanitarian relief flights. Haiti needs food, water and medical aid, not a U.S. military occupation. Haiti's sovereignty and democratically elected President Jean Bertrand Aristide must be restored!

If we are serious about helping Haiti, we must stop trying to control & exploit them. Ever since the US invaded & occupied Haiti in 1915, every serious attempt by Haiti's people to end exploitation & poverty has been violently blocked by the USA & allies

A focus on population is a dangerous diversion from the urgent need to transition to a zero-carbon economy. Population control schemes are ineffective, & inevitably treat the victims of social & economic injustice as obstacles to a sustainable society.
