Last week saw the coming and going of International Women’s Day – a day that went curiously under-reported here in the US. The silence with which the day passed was surprising precisely because the past year has been so remarkable in an opposite sense, bringing an upsurge not only in recognition of, but also in action against, gender-based harassment, oppression and inequality.
Putin Must Say STOPBarring accidents voters in Russia will elect Putin again. Just when Turkey is invading and slaughtering people in Afrin, Syria, with Putins personal permission. With just one word ..NYET .. Putin could cancel the Fly Permission as he did before when Turkey shot down a Russian plane, and Erdogan’s invasion would grind to a halt. Now for gas pipelines and arms deals Russia lets the Turkish Hitler Erdogan indulge in genocide to boost his personal powers. But what a vile bastard is Putin, bathing in mass nationalist adulation, when with just one word he could STOP the massacre of a people and their brilliant revolution.
