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.
If you like it, please share it!
Don't forget to let us know what you think about it üôÇ

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

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.

A report released Thursday morning by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) said that undocumented immigrants in the United States contribute around $11.74 billion in state and local taxes. The contributions come from a variety of taxes, including sales, excise, personal income and property taxes.

policy is informed policy," ITEP director of programs Meg Wiehe said via a press release. as the horrendous impact of breaking up families under a mass deportation policy should not be ignored, nor should policymakers overlook the significant contributions undocumented immigrants make to our state and local revenues and the economy."

"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." …

"That is one of the main issues that we are having is the fact that a lot of the women and children that were released, their husbands and fathers were sent home or are still in detention," she said. "So basically the family units are being broken, so it becomes really hard for them to survive. They don't have that partner with them. They don't have the father to help out." …
