inequality,

So Let me get this straight, a woman can dream a brother raped her and have him sentenced and he serves 28 years… But this #StanfordRapist boy#BrockTurner can do 3 months for actually being guilty… And you wonder why #Kaepernick won’t stand for that flag… That’s the nature of #Amerikkkaand people tripping about #WhitePrivilege like its some kind of myth ✊🏾

DENVER (AP) — A man imprisoned for 28 years for a rape he denies committing says being released from custody is the “moment of my life.” Clarence Moses-EL walked out of Denver jail on Tuesday arm-and-arm with his wife. Supporters and family members cheered him as he stepped outside. He had just hugged three of his 12 grandchildren whom he had met for the first time.

Moses-El told reporters he was at a loss for words. “I just want to get home with my family,” he said.

A judge last week overturned Moses-EL’s 1988 rape conviction.

Moses-EL was convicted based on testimony from the victim, who said his face came to her in a dream. Another prisoner, whom the woman initially identified as her rapist, wrote to Moses-EL in 2013 and confessed to having sex with the victim.

Corporations Running The World Used To Be Science Fiction - Now It's Reality - TruePublica

Imagine a world in which all of the main functions of society are run for-profit by private companies. Schools are run by multinationals. Private security firms have replaced police forces. And most big infrastructure lies in the hands of a tiny plutocratic elite. Justice, such as it is, is meted out by shady corporate tribunals only accessible to the rich, who can easily escape the reach of limited national judicial systems. The poor, on the other hand, have almost no recourse against the mighty will of the remote corporate elite as they are chased off their land and forced into further penury.

This sounds like a piece of dystopian science fiction. But it’s not. It’s very close to the reality in which we live. The power of corporations has reached a level never before seen in human history, often dwarfing the power of states.

Today, of the 100 wealthiest economic entities in the world, 69 are now corporations and only 31 countries*. This is up from 63 to 37 a year ago. At this rate, within a generation we will be living in a world entirely dominated by giant corporations.

As multinationals increasingly dominate areas traditionally considered the primary domain of the state, we should be afraid. While they privatise everything from education and health to border controls and prisons, they stash their profits away in secret offshore accounts. And while they have unrivalled access to decision makers they avoid democratic processes by setting up secret courts enabling them to bypass all judicial systems applicable to people. Meanwhile their raison d’etre of perpetual growth in a finite world is causing environmental destruction and driving climate change. From Sports Direct’s slave-like working conditions to BP’s oil spill devastating people’s homes, stories of corporations violating rights are all too often seen in our daily papers.

Yet the power of corporations is so great within our society that they have undermined the idea that there is any other way to run society. We are all too familiar with hearing about the threat of ‘losing corporate investment’ or companies ‘taking their business somewhere else’ as if the government’s number one task is to attract corporate investment.

It is this corporate agenda that permeates the governing institutions of the global economy, like the World Trade Organisation and the International Monetary Fund, whose policies and operations have given more importance to the ‘rights’ of big business than the rights and needs of people and the environment.

Continues…

Do you want to change the world? Then it starts by changing your world. Try wherever possible to purchase from UK sellers before multinationals like Amazon. Because once UK sellers have been put out of business, multinationals will hold you to ransom. That’s the way Capitalism works.

Sexism Against Men Is To Be Formally Recognised

For years feminism has been deemed a legitimate and needed movement – for centuries women have been less advantaged and discriminated against in many (but not all) areas – but some male issues, including the rise in suicide, do get overlooked.

Today, for the first time, the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is being called on to officially recognise that men and boys do experience inequality and systemic disadvantage in some areas of British life.

According to the Telegraph, the EHRC has been taking submissions for proposals to be included in a strategic plan for 2016-2019 to analyse, crack down on and try to help rid sexism against men.

Areas drawn attention to include: 

  1. The high male suicide rate.
  2. The challenges faced by boys at all stages of education including attainment.
  3. Men’s health, shorter life expectancy and workplace deaths.
  4. The challenges faced by the most marginalised men and boys in society (for instance, homeless men, boys in care and the high rate of male deaths in custody).
  5. Male victims of violence, including sexual violence.
  6. The challenges faced by men as parents, particularly new fathers and separated fathers.
  7. Male victims of sexual and domestic abuse, forced marriage, honour-based crime, stalking and slavery.
  8. The negative portrayal of men, boys and fathers.

While some extreme feminists may claim men can’t be on the receiving end of sexism because of current patriarchy, it would be counter-productive to ignore areas men are discriminated against as a result of their gender.

20-year-old Bernie Sanders organizing a protest against segregated university housing at his Alma mater, the University of Chicago in 1962

“We feel it is an intolerable situation when Negro and white students of the university cannot live together in university-owned apartments,” Sanders said at the protest. Sanders and 32 other students then entered the building and camped outside the president’s office, performing the first civil rights sit-in in Chicago history

Sanders is one of only two sitting United States Senators who was personally in attendance at Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The other was Senator Mitch McConnell.
