Help me win scholarship to attend Netroots Nation, an organizing conference, in the summer.

I am competing for a scholarship to help me afford the conference. My current rank is 16/53, very close to the top five spots which will be granted a scholarship!

I want to attend Netroots Nation because I want to meet and be inspired by the work of my peers. Learning never ends, it would be a great opportunity to learn tactics and strategies that will help me be a better organizer in the Rio Grande Valley. I will be representing the RGV and UTPA!

Apart from giving the impression that those fleeing the continent are confirming the myth of the ‘dark continent’ where life is ‘nasty, brutish and short’, the current lack of coherent messages and action from the AU creates the impression that this particular challenge can only be solved by those that in any event prefer that Africans don’t burden their political economies.

It is not only tragic but dehumanizing for many an African  to see and know that an increasing number of us are willing to die rather than live here. It is even more distressing to know that our elected or appointed representatives do not take this issue as seriously as they should.

The Africans that I’m seeing in Italy are vermin and scum, they’re the bane of Africa. I ask myself why Italy and other European countries allow such people to stay on their national territories. I feel a strong sense of shame and anger because of them: they act like rats and take over your European cities. It’s a mass exodus of scum on its way to Europe.  I’m also ashamed and angry because of African governments, who assist their trash migrating to Europe.

“If you travel by boat without a visa you will not make Australia home. THE RULES APPLY TO EVERYONE.”

Let’s just take a moment to admire the sensible Australian border policies and pray that they are implemented in every European and white country.

Always happy to see my country valuing in it‘s own people and setting up long term policies to protect them.

Protect Children from Human Trafficking

Since October 2013, U.S. border patrol has apprehended more than 52,000 unaccompanied children fleeing extreme violence from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Many of these children are at risk of being trafficked.

Sign the petition to help us protect these children from human trafficking.


Holding Hands Across Borders

Migration of one or more family members inevitably has an impact on the way family relationships are maintained and on how family life is practiced. Whereas migration flows from the global South to the North have increased over the past decades, the external borders of Europe have closed, especially for those coming from African countries. In The Netherlands, where migration policies have increasingly tightened – like other popular destination countries – migrants face serious restrictions to migrate as a family unit or to reunite with their family members, often resulting in prolonged family separations.

This photo documentary is based on the PhD research of anthropologist Miranda Poeze. Over the past five years she has researched Ghanaian migrant parents in The Netherlands whose children are living in Ghana. In her research, Miranda focused on how migration and often lengthy separations, shape the relationships between migrant parents and their children. This photo documentary offers an intimate insight into the lives of eight cross-border families  and on the ways their family lives and migration projects are intertwined.


Adam Crapser is just one of many adoptees who were left without citizenship because of a loophole in the Child Citizenship Act of 2000. After being adopted into an abusive family as a child, Adam never received the citizenship he was promised. He resorted to stealing in order to survive, and now faces deportation to a country he does not know. 

Thousands of adoptees, promised all of the rights and privileges held by their adoptive families, still can’t open bank accounts, obtain passports and drivers licenses, or get jobs. However, an amendment that would give retroactive citizenship to all international adoptees–including Adam–is gaining support in Washington. It has already garnered public support from Senators Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and the private support of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

Tell them to ‪#‎KeepUsHome‬: so Adam can receive the justice he deserves, adoptees who’ve been deported can come back to the US, and all international adoptees can hold in their hands what was promised to them as children: their citizenship.


Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Give him a fishing rod and he can feed himself. Alternatively, don’t poison the fishing waters, abduct his great-grandparents into slavery, then turn up 400 years later on your gap year talking a lot of shite about fish.
