A very eye opening documentary investigation. Note that even though this is from a non-Christian secular point of view the investigators conclude themselves that there is so much discrimination against Christians going on in the UK now that there is a discernable and worrying pattern. Why should Christians be denied rights?

Project Kalki is the voice of the voiceless. Transgender women, all over the world, have been the most marginalised, stigmatised and discriminated community for centuries. Except in Tamilnadu, our voices have not been heard anywhere in India. This is a project to empower those women to speak who have not spoken, to hear their voices. To empower them to tell the world what they wanted to say through video films. As citizens of this great country, transgender women also care about other under privileged people and care about social problems of this country. In this dream project, Kalki provides a Canon Legria FS 200 hanycam to seven under privileged transgender women. They are also provided with all the accessories needed for filming. These women carry the camera in their hands for a few days and shoot their stories and subjects. After one person completes the filming, she hands it over to the next girl. When all the seven girls finish their shoots, their films are edited and made as short documentary films by themselves. These subjects these girls have chosen are all unique. For example, Gomathi wants to do a short documentary on street children, Sandhiya wants to do a story on abandoned aged people and Monal does a story on garbage pickers. Some girls have chosen the subject of their relationships. These films will be screened at a venue in Chennai and other places in India.

This is a response to - I hope I get this right- ZOMGITSCriss video Criticising Islam. Yeah.... I don't see how the first part of your video is really connected with the second part. Also, you emphasize how you take a middle-of-the-road stance on it all, but it still begs one question: Do you think atheists and other critics of religion should be more sensitive and responsible (even by the most minuscule amount) when it comes to criticising Islam as compared to Christianity (which is the majority and dominant religion in the west and IMHO does not require protection of minority rights because of persecution). I am not saying not to criticise Islam at all but maybe for atheists to keep that in mind that Muslims are a persecuted minority subject to ethnic profiling and Religious discrimination in the west which mainstream Christians do not have to face at all because they have historically gotten their way. Bottom line is to be responsible about what you say; think about the consequences especially for Muslims and their respective communities. Also, as for the last part, I admit, it is a very difficult problem, but the solution ultimately lies in integrating Muslims and their respective ethnic communities into the west better. I think the real difference between the religious abuse Christians suffer from and Muslims and ex-Muslims suffer from is that Muslims are also more marginalised in the first place (Makes it all the more severe and that they lack support networks in western society).

Over the last two or three decades Afro-Colombians increasingly organized over issues of discrimination and marginalization. They have demanded equality and justice in a number of ways including in education, employment and land rights. A section of these demands have been in the form of claims to autonomy and to territory as ethnic groups under the rubric of Law 70 and the 1991 Constitution. Others in the form of civil rights as marginalized racial groups under the rubric of the 1991 constitution and constitutional court ruling T 422. In combination these legal structures include provisions for education, for representation and for collective territories. In the process of mobilization and recognition there is a divide between claims to equality within the law and claims to equality through separate laws. To put it another way, there is a divide between claims to civil rights and social justice on one hand and to autonomy on the other. In this moment of transforming states what do these claims mean for citizenship? I suggest that claims by Afro-Colombians profoundly challenge what it means to be a citizen in Colombia and further afield. Bettina Ng'weno is an Associate Professor of African American and African Studies at the University of California, Davis. Trained in anthropology and originally from Kenya, she conducts research on states and property in Latin America and Africa. She has recently published Turf Wars: Territory and Citizenship in the Contemporary State, 2007, Stanford University Press, and "Can Ethnicity Replace Race?

The United Motorcycle Council of Queensland was officially launched in Brisbane on Sunday April 19, 2009. One of the Councils first goals is to contribute to the public debate about the proposed anti-association legislation which would effectively outlaw motorcycle clubs. However this was not the catalyst for the formation of the UMCQ. Discussions between Queensland clubs to form the Council began in October 2008, as clubs recognised the need to peacefully resolve disputes away from the public eye. The objectives of the council are: •To lobby for fair treatment of all motorcyclists. •To lobby against unjust laws for all Australians. •To lobby against any form of discrimination or marginalisation of motorcycle clubs and motorcyclists. •To join with other interest groups in joint lobbying as agreed. •To provide education regarding human rights and responsibilities.

Apparently the US injected gonorrhea and syphilis into hundreds of people, some mentally ill, without their knowledge or consent. They then encouraged the infected people to pass along their illness to others to further the study. Even worse a majority never got treatment. Honestly do they really think a "sorry" is going to cut.

Background Women all over the world have had the challenge of tackling stereotypes and breaking through the moulds that has been imposed on them. To add to a long list of assertions, in particular Muslim women are sympathised due to perceptions of being 'oppressed', 'weak', and 'living in a patriarchal society'. While it has been acknowledged that there are women who fit the stereotype and fall neatly into the mould, is such the case for only 'Muslim' women? Does the stereotype exist because of Islam or due to cultural practices and traditions? Are active Muslim women the exception, or are they progressively becoming the rule? In addition, Muslim women are a largely misunderstood and misrepresented body of society. As a result of skewed media spin and a lack of platforms and opportunities to represent themselves, a narrow and closed-minded view of Muslim women prevails. Rationale The subject of Muslim women can often be a controversial one, but it is one that needs to be discussed and debated in an environment conducive to Muslim women. For too long Muslim women have been analysed by those from the outside; often with prejudgements and assertions already rooted in place. It is time for Muslim women to take the lead in discussing the issues which directly concern and impact their lives. A series of shows engaging Muslim women from a variety of sectors and professions would serve to; Provide an open platform for Muslim women to share their insight and experiences Acknowledge and bring to light the contributions and achievements of Muslim women Stimulate discussion between community members, groups and leaders as well as external and internal organisations concerning issues related to the activities of Muslim women Distil media portrayal and stereotyping of Muslim women and highlight the colourful diversity found within the Muslim community Series Framework The shows will air on Channel NTV fortnightly for a period of six months and will also be able to be accessed via the Faith Regen Website. The show has been provided a primetime slot at Friday 7:30pm-8:30pm and is repeated on the following Monday 3:30pm-4:30pm. 1) Muslim Women In Politics I 2) Muslim Women in Politics II 3) Muslim Women in Education I 4) Muslim Women in Education II 5) Muslim Women and the Impact of Violence a. Arms Trade Treaty b. Guns and knives c. Police d. Domestic violence e. Forced marriages f. Honour killings 6) Muslim Women in Volunteerism and Community Engagement 7) Muslim Women on Climate Change 8) Muslim Women and Employment 9) Muslim Women in Business 10) Muslim Women in Media 11) Victims of Acid Burns Charity Fundraiser 12) Muslim Women in Employment II 13) Muslim Women and Preventing Extremism About the Faith Regen Foundation FRF is a Muslim inspired multi-faith charity, operating at both a national and international level to build bridges with and between multi-faith communities, government and civil society. We use our networks with faith-based communities as well as statutory and non-statutory bodies to promote interfaith dialogue, address poverty, regenerate deprived areas and provide greater opportunities for employment and training to Black and Migrant Ethnic groups. FRF has demonstrated expertise in organising high level international networking conferences in its efforts to promote interfaith dialogue for the benefit of empowering marginalised and vulnerable communities. We have organised international conferences in collaboration with the Philadelphia Cathedral and the Islamic Society of North America, the Department for Trade and Industry and the National Health Service University. In June 2008, FRF held a conference in partnership with UMCOR and the Commonwealth Foundation on the Role of Women in Peaceful Co-existence. There were contributors from Sri Lanka, Israel, Bosnia, UK, and the Vice President of Gambia. In October 2009, FRF held a two-day Faith and Climate Change conference to stimulate global interfaith and intra-faith action on climate change. As well as presenting the results of focus groups from ten different countries, key note speeches were given by MP Edward Miliband the former Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change and Michael Slaby, Coordinator of Earth Charter. FRF events have been attended by a cross section of society including the former Malaysian Prime Minister, Ministers of Parliament, activists, senior government officials, academics, international non-government organizations and faith leaders. By bringing together people from the government, community and faith sectors, FRF has strived to highlight key issues in tackling inequality and sought to create greater social cohesion.

Transgender woman in India's Bangalore contests local election, inspires her community to fight for their rights Christy Raj, a transgender himself, tells us about Veena S -- the first member of his community in Bangalore who entered the poll fray this year. Veena -- a male to female transgender and a Dalit, contested the election of Bangalore municipality this March' 2010. Though she did not win, her move has inspired the entire community to stand up and claim their rights that have been denied for long. In February 2010 the election commission of India - the apex body that conducts the elections in the country -- allowed intersex and transsexuals the right to register as voters. Following this Veena decided to contest in the local election. She was supported by her community members and NGOs in Bangalore working for the rights of sexual minority. Born into a poor family, Veena grew up in a slum and experienced all the hardships that the transgender community members in India face: Deprivation of civic rights such as claiming employment and health benefits, right to marry and own a passport or a driving license. Worst still, she couldn't claim the benefits of the public distribution system (PDS) that allows Indian citizens to buy essential items such as rice or cooking gas at subsidized prices. Since she is also a Dalit, she also faced caste discrimination which added to her sufferings. Veena has been fighting against this denial of rights, as well as the rights of However, despite the difficulties , she has managed to is a hijra, a transsexual woman women, Dalits, and sex workers, which led to her selection as a candidate According to Christy Raj, Veena's participation has been a symbolic breakthrough for her community. It has inspired the entire community to claim the rights that they have been denied for long, says Christy who neither has a ration card himself, nor a passport. Christy feels that though Veena lost this election, from now on there will be regular This is merely a sign of change on the paper. With support from non-governmental organisations and platforms, transgender people are organising to demand jobs, protection and entitlements.

This book is a great buy for anyone but it focuses particularly n the plight of Women and those of West Indian heritage living in the islands. Issues faced by women in poor and developing nations are explored as they and their children continue to be the poorest, uneducated, most marginalized, under employed, under-paid, abused and murdered. Amongst poor women further marginalization occurs based on skin colour and hair texture. Darker shades of women are bypassed in preference of those of a lighter skin complexion or less kinked hair. This form of reverse racism has impacted negatively on the psyche of BLACK (as in the skin shade) girls and their inability to advance in society. This cycle has lead to a downward spiral that has made BLACK women the invisible - not only in the smaller society but the international media/world. This novel quintet is the voice of WOMAN crying out and a voice that must be heard as HÉLÈNE CIXOUS says: "Woman must write herself, must write about women and bring women to writing, from which they have been driven away as violently as from their bodies, for the same reasons, by the same law, with the same fatal goal. Woman must put herself into text— as into the world and into history— by her own movement." Tricia Trotman-Maraj is the first Black West Indian woman living in the West Indies to have attempted such a project. Nevertheless, support from Corporate Trinidad & Tobago for a project of this magnitude and importance has been less than lukewarm. 'Mamie' is the first title in the series and will be followed by four more titles once sponsors come forward. If you or your company wishes to partner with Tricia Trotman-Maraj for this cause please contact her at the website listed on the video (www.westindianchronicles.cjb.net) or google the title and pick up copies of the novel at a location nearest you. It is available globally! Remember: Every book sold counts! Thanks so much! Tricia Trotman-Maraj

Religious Leaders Pledge for Equality for People Living with HIV Bangalore, 28 September 2010: Acknowledging the significant influence that faith-based groups have on general public, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder, Art of Living Foundation, along with high-level religious leaders from all faiths, who attended the two-day interfaith summit on HIV & AIDS, jointly announced a 'declaration' to remove stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV. The summit concluded with a pledge to undertake the responsibility of working tirelessly to remove all forms of roadblocks, isolation and marginalization of people living with and affected by HIV. Munisri Jinesh Kumarji, Sri Jain Shvetambar Terapanth Sabha, Avtar Singh Makkar , Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandhak Committee, Golden Temple, Amritsar, Ervad Noshir Dadrawala, Centre of Advancement of Philanthrophy, Dryuhannon Mar Dios Corus, Metropolitan of Chennai, Syed Ghulam Kibria Dastagir, President, Anjuman Syed Zadjan, Ajmer Dargah Sharif, Swami Dharmavallabh Das, Swami Narayan Gurukul, His Holiness Phrakhrupipipsutatorn, AIMA, Thailand and Param Poojya Asaram Bapu signed the declaration and advocated for an AIDS free India. Leaders across faith groups pledged to utilise their sacred scriptures and traditions to actively promote these messages and talk openly about key issues on HIV and AIDS during religious discourses in their communities. They also promised to work in partnership with organisations and networks of people living with HIV, Government, NGOs and other partners to enabling a stigma free environment to access HIV services in healthcare settings and defend their fundamental freedoms and human rights. Declaration: A) Mobilize human resources from the faith communities to complement the efforts of the Government to ensure that people from all communities can access services on HIV prevention, care and treatment. B) Believe that every child has a right to be born without HIV- and every mother to treatment for her own HIV and other health needs. Therefore, pledge to mobilize communities to support all pregnant women to access formal healthcare and HIV testing services in recognition of the fact that HIV positive mothers can have children free from HIV- and can live for many years as healthy mothers, raising their children to adulthood. C) Support promotion of voluntary testing in an environment which has confidentiality, informed consent and counselling and will work to develop these services in our communities, medical and faith institutions D) Leaders to use the platform to actively promote these messages and talk openly about key issues on HIV during our religious discourses in our communities and among our peers. E) Wholeheartedly endorse the importance of an Interfaith Coalition with the National Secretariat to coordinate the interfaith response to HIV. "The declaration is the outcome of a promising response of religious leaders across faith and our partners who supported us in our initiative. Forums like these not only break the inter-cultural barriers but also strengthen the initiative taken to eradicate stigmas like HIV from the society. It is encouraging to be a part of the drive to combat HIV and standing for a cause. I am hopeful of more such platforms inviting participation from diversified fraternities." said Sri Sri Ravi Sankar. The summit witnessed participation from over 300 religious leaders besides Prof. Charles Gilks, Country Coordinator UNAIDS India, Dr. Ennapadam S. Krishnamoorthy, APAC-VHS, USAID, Karin Hulshof and UNICEF India Representative, Mr R R Jannu, PD, KSAPS. A workshop attended for and by the religious leaders on the approach to remove stigma and discrimination reiterated their commitment to create a favourable environment for the HIV positive people. Effective messages by HIV positive people including living with HIV- Reverend J. P. Heath, who is also the Founder Member and Acting Executive Director of INERELA +, motivated the religious leaders to commit themselves fully to support the national HIV response and bring the resources of the faith communities behind the common goal of halting and reversing the HIV epidemic.

This shows how hypocrit is the IRI and his reactionnaries supporters like Hamas in Palestine or Hezbollah in Lebanon when they try to describe themself as "defending the arabs". Against oppression, long live the unity of the workers of the aera for a Middle-East without racist, nationalist, religious or sexist discriminiations !

Une femme de la minorité arabe montre et parle de sa maison détruite par les forces de la République Islamique d'Iran à Ahvaz. Cela montre toute l'hypocrisie des dirigeants de la République Islamique lorsqu'ils se montrent avec leurs alliés comme le Hezbollah libanais et le Hamas palestinien comme des "défenseurs des arabes" sur la scène internationale.
