Here is a short documentary about Hijab made by SCROP from Ifmsa Nl Groningen in collaboration with us, Groningen Feminist Network, Amnesty International, Unicef Groningen and Vrede Jongen. The goal of the documentary is to create awareness and start an open dialogue about this topic. We believe that every woman should have the right to choose whatever she likes to wear, including the Hijab! In order to defend this right, we have created a Hijab project, which this video is part of.

Will Trump be Prosecuted for War Crimes?
By, Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey via "Huffington Post

Consequences for President Donald Trump's rhetoric differ substantively from those of Candidate Trump as such may affect his personal culpability over potential crimes under international law and now that he is Commander in Chief. Incitement may be enough to create criminal culpability. — Read MORE —

This is important to us all because the International Court of Justice and Human Rights must act now to prevent women from being physically tortured. They have to act on behalf of all women to change the way women are treated and provide compensation for women who have been abused by the government. Women must be free to express and not be forced into prostitution. Government and politicians use women like business, by taking away their human rights and using their bodies. They are taking advantage of unemployment, whenever they want. They don't respect their property, and their aren't given any jobs and rights away from their properties.
Rape is illegal but women are being raped in many countries, sometimes in front of their own families. The rapists deliberately don't wear condoms infecting women with STIs. This is about power and violence. Girls and women are blamed by the society. They are slaves. Please support this cause for your sister, daughter and granddaughter. Like the page Rights"and Share it with your friends or family.

When i was talking with the authority, he came to me and told me why do you want to suffer because of women. I realized he doesn't know that it affects him as well.
He does not understand that over controlling them causes trouble which affects him. Putting the rules of her not having any relationship with people around you also causes problems. I found that he doesn't understand that the authorized gets charged for developing relationships with workers. That is the life that he is challenged.no one has a right over their life. Only one person I found that understands the rights. He was a dictator however never involved in human rights. Because he knew they affected him He joined all the tribe and respected his life as well as rights. The job shouldn't eliminate a person's life and during work time a person should respect what she does.. and when you finish work the job should respect your life. He was a dictator but he never interferes with human rights because he enjoyed it as well.
No one was judging him that he was with a particular person which is caused by all of this is jealousy and selfishness It caused the problem to be killed and raped. If they had right this wouldn't be happening . Even the killer also end up in prison.
Support women rights for your wife and sisters to have rights , your sons will have rights as well

Mr. Guerrero was recently ordered to report for a check-in at the Newark Field Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement on March 10, at 10 am, to determine if he should be removed from the United States.

If Mr. Guerrero is deported it would be absurd and immoral as he is far from being a threat either to the community or to national security. Mr. Guerrero does not have a criminal record and was granted a stay of removal in 2013 and 2014 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

and many many unaffiliated, autonomous individuals

State-based violence is not new to our Trans, Gender Non-Conforming, Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Two Spirit and Queer communities, especially queer and trans Black, and Indigenous people. Our ancestors for centuries have been disrespected, ignored, caged, abused, and subject to deadly violence since the formation of the American national identity. Stories of family members disappearing in police custody, violent backlash and attacks to silence and suppress us, and twisted politicians using our bodies for political gain are all too familiar.

And while the new political realities in the US and the rise of fascism around the world have many calling for unity, bold action and even revolution, we continue to see the transphobia, misogyny, xenophobia, anti blackness and racism that is at the root of Trump's power reflected back to us in our own community and in the growing movement to resist Trump's agenda. This year is on track to be the most dangerous year yet for trans women of color — even more violent than 2016, and 2015 before that.

So far in 2017, seven of our sisters have lost their lives to horrific acts of violence. These Black and native trans women's lives were in jeopardy on multiple levels before November 8th and threats have only increased since. However, despite the hyper-visible outrage against anti-woman and anti-LGBT policies led and inspired by the Trump administration, the loss of Mesha Caldwell, Jaquarrius Holland, Chyna Doll Depree, JoJo Striker, Ciara McElveen, Jamie Lee Wounded Arrow, Tiara Richmond, and the calls for action from trans women in our community have been met with telling silence.

The contributions come from a variety of taxes, including sales, excise, personal income and property taxes.

"ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) occur in greater frequency among Latin American youth, specifically first-generation immigrant children. Studies also show that first-generation immigrant Latino youth are at higher risk of depression, anxiety and PTSD. This is in part caused by the constant stress and fear of deportation of themselves or family members.

These children suffer developmentally and educationally as well. They cannot access basic services such as early intervention, meal assistance or other government programs because their parents fear detection and deportation, even though a large proportion of these children are actually born in the United States and qualify for these programs. This results in even greater disparities between the Latin American community and the rest of the country." …

People have been lied to about USA President Obama. He did many thousands of unlawful deportations to Brazil and many other countries, without the due process inside of Immigration Law. Then he lied further and said it was not him, and to fear Donald Trump. It was Obama's intention, because he is muslim, to only let in muslim people as immigrants. He deported others to make room for muslim people and tore apart many families. Please Sign the Petition and let me go home to my family.

On Wednesday, March 22nd, we invite you to stand up to protect our immigrant neighbors in Rhode Island.

The House Judiciary Committee will face a choice in either protecting our immigrant neighbors from Trump's deportation force, or collaborating with federal immigration officials in the splitting apart of families and our community.

The Comittee will hear H5515 ( webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText17/HouseText17/H5515.pdf ), a bill we support, as it would:

Prevent ICE from enlisting the help of local law enforcement officials in deporting families.

Protect cities and towns from the threat of litigation as a result of cooperating with ICE, as it prevents said cooperation

We encourage community members to testify AGAINST H5093 ( webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/BillText/BillText17/HouseText17/H5093.pdf ), a bill that would:

It will not make our communities safer. This bill mandates widely discredited policing practices, eroding public trust and making local policing more difficult. And has been publically opposed by Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare, and also nationally criticized by mayors and police chiefs.

It will drive our immigrant communities further underground, making people less likely to report crimes for fear of being targeted by the police.

ICE's Secure Communities Program has deported several undocumented immigrants as a result of "collateral" arrests, leading to the deportation of those who have not committed nor been convicted of any crime in the United States. …

Help fellow Syrian student Khaled Almijali return to Brown. He is a member of our community who was affected by Trump's travel ban. In January 2017, after a successful first semester at Brown School of Public health, Khaled traveled to Turkey to assist his team in coordinating humanitarian assistance for Syria. When he tried to board his plane back to the U.S., he was notified that the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul had revoked his student visa. He is still stranded in Turkey, awaiting a decision on a new visa, while his pregnant wife is waiting for him in the U.S.

On February 28, we will deliver a petition to the offices of Democratic Representatives Corvese, O'Brien, Phillips, Ucci, and Edwards to express our opposition to the so-called SAFETY AND PROTECTION ACT" (Bill H 5093). This bill would make it a crime for local public officials not to aggressively target immigrants in our community and allow any citizen to sue them if they didn't. This measure forces every local official to be a tool of Trump's racist immigration policy — and it goes against Rhode Island values & and what Democrats purport to stand for. Representatives, take your names off it!

Sign the petition here:

petitions.moveon.org/workingfamilies/sign/dont-write-trumps-anti?source=c.em&r_by=4643457

More information on why we oppose Bill H 5093:

will not make our communities safer. This bill mandates widely discredited policing practices, eroding public trust and making local policing more difficult. And has been publically opposed by Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare, and also nationally criticized by mayors and police chiefs.

will drive our immigrant communities further underground, making people less likely to report crimes for fear of being targeted by the police.

a state whose hallmark is The Independent Man, H 5093 would require your state and local governments to do what they are told by the Trump administration, whether it is good for Rhode Islanders or not, including reporting the citizenship status of any Rhode Islander to the Federal Government.

** This event is being organized by a new coalition to protect immigrant rights **

El 28 de febrero, entregaremos una petición a los Representantes Demócratas Corvese, O'Brien, Phillips, Ucci y Edwards para dejar claro nuestra oposición al llamado DE SEGURIDAD Y PROTECCI√ìN P√öBLICAS" (Bill H 5093). Esta propuesta de ley definiría como acto criminal que los funcionarios p√∫blicos no persiguieran y acosaran a los inmigrantes de nuestra comunidad, y permitiría que cualquier ciudadano demandara al oficial que se negara a hacerlo. Esta medida obliga a todo funcionario p√∫blico a ser una herramienta de las políticas de inmigración racistas de Trump y adem√°s va en contra de los valores del estado de Rhode Island y todo lo que los Demócratas pretenden defender. ¬°Pedimos a los Representantes que quiten sus firmas de esta propuesta!

Se puede firmar la petición aquí:

petitions.moveon.org/workingfamilies/sign/dont-write-trumps-anti?source=c.em&r_by=4643457

No har√° que nuestras comunidades sean m√°s seguras. La propuesta ordena unas pr√°cticas policiales que han sido rotundamente desacreditadas, que dañarían la confianza p√∫blica y harían m√°s difícil el trabajo policial local. Adem√°s, Steven Pare, el Comisionado de la Seguridad P√∫blica de Providence, se ha declarado p√∫blicamente en contra de la propuesta, que ha sido criticada a nivel nacional por alcaldes y jefes de policía.

La propuesta llevaría a que nuestras comunidades de inmigrantes se escondieran, haciendo que la gente estuviese menos dispuesta a reportar crímenes por el miedo de ponerse en la mira de la policía.

En un estado cuyo sello distintivo es el Independiente," H 5093 requeriría que su gobierno tanto estatal como local hiciera lo que diga la administración de Trump, sea bueno o malo para los ciudadanos de Rhode Island; esto incluye reportar el estatus de ciudadanía de cualquier residente de Rhode Island al Gobierno Federal.

We, members of the Brown Immigrant Rights Coalition (BIRC), are empowered by the collective efforts that resulted in recent policy changes in regards to undocumented students at Brown University. These changes will enable undocumented and DACA-mented students to apply as domestic applicants beginning this admissions cycle. Undocumented and DACA-mented applicants will now benefit from the university's need-blind admissions policy, and upon matriculation, Brown University will meet 100 percent of each students' demonstrated financial need.

This work would have been impossible without the tireless labor of students, faculty, and alumni, especially women of color and undocumented students who are too often the subject of institutional erasure. We recognize that there is much work left to be done, and BIRC is determined to remain active in the implementation of these policies at Brown. We are also committed to continue the fight within the global immigrant rights struggle in order to uphold our values and create a world where all forms of oppression are abolished. …

"Data released by the Department of Homeland Security shows that black immigrants are detained and deported at higher rates than their counterparts of other backgrounds. Over the past 20 years, since the 1996 laws have been in effect, statistics have shown a dramatic, alarming increase in the number of undocumented immigrants of African descent who have been racially profiled by local police and turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation. Estimates show that the deportation rate of undocumented black immigrants is five times their numbers in the undocumented population, which is similar to the overrepresentation of African Americans in the criminal justice system. Furthermore, black immigrants are twice as likely to be detained due to a criminal conviction. Even though black immigrants make up only 7% of the total immigrant population, 20% of all immigrants in deportation proceedings due to criminal convictions are black." …

"An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." For this reason, we are letting our voice be heard in celebration of inclusivity and diversity through a march in Downtown Los Angeles. The march will go from Grand Park by City Hall and will proceed down Hill Street, make a right on 6th Street, and will end at the immigration court on Olive and 6th Street. We anticipate the following program:

10:30 – 11:00 am: Gather, play music, and get to know one another

11:00 – 11:30 am: Voter registration drive (assisting people to register via smart phones and written voter registration applications)

11:30 am – 12:30 pm: March approximately one mile to destination

12:30 pm – 1:30 pm: Performances, speeches and press conference

Of course plenty of time is given for more flexibility, no stress, only celebration of the diversity that makes us great.

Marcha Contra Fronteras de Odio

Today, the U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions targeted so-called cities" in a White House briefing. Only days after the staggering healthcare defeat, Sessions threatened to cut more than four billion dollars in federal funding from local jurisdictions that violate federal immigration law. Following through on a threat from President Trump's January 25th Executive Order, Sessions indicated that any city which failed to share immigration status or citizenship information with the Immigration and Naturalization Service would be at-risk.

Following quote is from Kyle Huelsman, Policy Manager of the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition (CIRC) – By conflating ICE detainer holds and federal immigration law, Jeff Sessions is using "alternative facts" to hoodwink the American people. The City of Denver, and every local jurisdiction in the state, is in compliance with federal immigration law. To state otherwise is misleading at best and dishonest at worst. The federal law referenced by the Attorney General (8 U.S.C. 1373) does not require any state or local jurisdiction to honor immigration detainers. The law simply prohibits local jurisdictions from withholding citizenship information from the federal government. We would hope Jeff Sessions would have read the relevant legal statute before attempting to enforce it." …

Padres y Jovenes Unidos organizer Tania Chairez on the main message the trainings convey:

"At the base level, we want people to realize that the Constitution protects everyone regardless of immigration status. So if you're in the U.S., you have basic rights, like the right to remain silent‚… And those are things that people who are immigrating to the US don't necessarily know — especially if they're undocumented."
