Let these numbers sink in (alternate Livestream on Real Progressives)
Here's Linda's blog site https://www.facebook.com/pg/TheresAnElephantInTheRoom/posts/
Updated slightly edited version of earlier livestream today. There were some connectivity issues. I share my thoughts about the lack of action of the global community in relation to the genocide in Yemen and the ongoing massacre of Palestinians and the normalisation of perpetual war. Asking the question, who is responsible?
"The United Nations‘ definition, however, contains precise factors for determining whether or not something qualifies as genocide:
A mental element: the “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such”; and
A physical element, which includes the following five acts, enumerated exhaustively:
Killing members of the group
Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group
Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part
Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group
Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group
So, is what’s happening in Yemen genocide?"

"After shooting 21 year old Ezz al-Din Tamimi in the chest and neck with live ammunition, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) delayed critical medical treatment, reportedly for half an hour. The IOF did not permit him to be treated by ambulance. The IOF continued to shoot tear gas and stun grenades at his community as Ezz lay bleeding into the earth and as they took him away in the very tank they use against his people and his village. He died before he reached the hospital.
This young man is yet another Palestinian life needlessly taken. Another Tamimi from the village Nabi Saleh, killed trying to defend his people from the land grab occurring day by day, from the brutality of the IOF towards his people, from ethnic cleansing. He was accused of throwing stones. " https://www.facebook.com/katherine.mary.k/posts/10160530321185578

We also detail Israel's support for the Syrian opposition, and show how dishonest the attempts are to liken Salafi rebels to the Palestinians.
This is part 2 of our 3-part interview with Rania Khalek.

A job guarantee and the political game and propaganda that will ensue... with Steven D Grumbine from Real Progressives. #LearnMMT
Frederick Douglass (1857): "Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."

Is ANZAC Day a fetishization of war? Do we remember the millions of war victims, the millions of war refugees? Should we follow US empire in the perpetual warmongering. Are we honouring soldiers when we send them to these immoral wars and then they return with PTSD and many kill themselves.
